When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter!
And what to my wondering eyes should appear but 1,000's of Starlings over shadowing the morning sun.
From treetop to treetop they paused only for a moment .
Before swooping to the ground to get right to work feeding on whatever they could find. Gleaning and searching their rest is a brief one.Now fly away, fly away,fly away all, please take your deafening chirping and move right along, over the pasture and over the creek,now fly away, fly away, fly and be gone !!!!
In the bright morning sunshine these handsome birds take on an irredescent glow. But as pretty as they are nothing in the numbers that they have is a welcomed sight. I was just hoping they didn't spot my feeders !!
It's funny how there always seems to be 1 or 2 that stay behind and make my yard their winter home. It makes me wonder where the large flocks really settle down.
As I left for market they were heading over the creek to the neighbors already.
Market was slow today,maybe Saturday will be a better day.
Ran errands after market and looked for a new mixer. No one in town seems to have the one I want, I want the Kitchenaid Pro 600 which is a 6 quart size. I have to call Ace Hardware tomorrow and if they don't have it ,I found it in a couple stores in Asheville.
Hubbie and daughter went to a new dentist this afternoon and they both really like him.
We arrived home about the same time. After we unloaded the van,daughter made supper while hubbie and I did chores.
Daughter is in the Christmas spirit tonight already putting up her decorations and listening to Christmas music. Still a little early for me, I like Thanksgiving decorations.
It was 29 degrees this morning with a very heavy frost and the high today was 54 but sunny.
Grateful to God for His never ending love .
Good Night and God Bless.
