Even though we are having some weather a bit chillier than it has been recently, it is far from cold here on Sunrise Ridge right now.

I considered taking a picture of the inside of the freezer, but it is pretty low and needs defrosted; so I felt like that was self-defeating. I did not want to have to do that task this morning and knew if I took the photo, I would end up with a four-letter word like WORK!

So I looked back through old pictures to try to find something ‘cold’ and came up with this to remind me of how fortunate I and the birds are this morning.
