Not much going on

Just looking at birds, reading, sleeping. I walked 3 blocks yesterday, tonight after dinner, I’ll shoot for 4 or 5. I finished another book, Ice Bound, by Jerri Nielson, the physician who diagnosed herself with breast cancer while stationed in Antarctica during winter. It starts slow, but picks up about midbook.

Here is a glipse of all the birds I’ve sighted in my back yard:
