Snow-Capped

I got out this afternoon with the camera.  There are a lot of plants and structures that are snow-capped.

That Japanese Maple in the back yard sure looks funny with its tiny asymmetrical cap.

Our neighborhood has a surfeit of dentists.  The office has some nice landscaping, all capped with snow this week.

These concrete structures are found at Silver Lake Park.  I have no idea what they are, but they look like raised mausoleums at a cemetery.  Capped with snow.

Snow Birds

I love watching the birds that come to our seed and suet feeders in the back yard.  Especially when it’s snowing.  Here’s who showed up the last couple of days.

Our Varied Thrush has a bug in her beak!  They are carnivores, like their Robin cousins.

A pair of Song Sparrows.  They were fighting Juncos and Chickadees for the feeder stations.

Below are visitors from previous years.

WinterWarbler

My very favorite has to be the little masked Townsend’s Warbler. Isn’t he cute?

I could just watch them all day long.

This is the parking lot at work Monday.

This is right out my front door about a half-hour ago.  We love standing at our kitchen window and watching the birds at our two feeders (seed and suet).  The cat likes watching them, too.  We will get 4-6 inches this weekend, and I will post more pictures later.  I love snow!

Our backyard this morning!  The snow is so heavy, it knocked over both of our old Arborvitae that have been here since 2000 when my house was built.

The Senior Senator from my State Advocates Infanticide.

A big story today covers the proposal in the Senate by Senator Ben Sasse proposed a bill offering protection for a live baby who survives a botched abortion (just thinking about that in itself is horrible-that a last-second “abortion” could “fail” and leave the baby alive).  Senator Sasse proposed to pass this bill by acclamation-who could NOT support a bill like this?

Well, I’ll just tell you who.  That would be the Senior Senator from Washington State, otherwise known as the “Mom in Tennis Shoes”, Sleazebag ,oops, Senator Patty Murray.  She is a sorry excuse for a senator, and is mocked as the most stupid person in Congress. So, now she adds “advocate of infanticide” to her many recommendations.

This is the logical conclusion to the Feminazi sacramentalizing of Abortion above all.

Local KIRO Radio personality Dori Monson talked about this on his show today.  Like him, I am ashamed to have that piece of horse turd “representing” me in the other Washington.  May she rot in hell.
