Outdoor Wednesday

A quick post today, as I am off to Huntsville to retrieve my brothers car. He flew out of Hunstville(rather than Bhan-saved some $$ in doing so) to Pasadena for the game. yes, THE game.
If you don't know what I am talking about, pretend like you do. (smile)
 It's HUGE here. University of Alabama fans have been counting down since they/we secured the SEC Championship. Now it's on to National Championship. My brother and sis in law, as well as friends and my cousin (who will be on the sideline) are all there.
And I am not there. :(
Someone had to pay Santa this year.
But I will be parked in front of the TV come tomorrow night. The kids have all been given "stay up late" passes to watch the game. My son, "Bama" (who goes to Bama) is driving me batty he is so stoked, he's bouncing off the walls.
Before I hit the road.....
I bring to you my Outdoor Wednesday post. Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by my friend, Susan of
A Southern Daydreamer.

Be sure to drop by her blog to visit all OW participants.
My Outdoor Wednesday post is of birds at the feeder. I think they all heard we, yes WE, are expecting snow tomorrow!!!!  Frecasters are predicting a "possible inch or two", but that is BIG NEWS to people in the south, if in fact it comes to be. The grocery stores are packed with folks clammering to get milk and bread. I have always wondered why the milk?
Anyway, the birds are preparing and getting their fill. My daughter actually took these shots with her camera.

See you tomorrow (this evening links will be up) for Thrifty Thursday!
Happy Day, y'all!

Your daughter took a great shot. The cardinals are gorgeous! I miss them. They haven't been around lately, I guess they are trying to stay warm....Christine

I love cardinals and our bird feeder attracts them often. I love to look out the kitchen window and watch them. Go Bama!

Leigh, I hope the Tide rolls high today!

Now, that might be the only time you hear this Auburn/FSU fan say that, but I am saying it in honor of you and of my Daddy who I loved more than anyone on earth and who was a Bama graduate! :-) In all seriousness, I want them to win BIG! Go Bama!

Love your cardinals. They have on the right color and are ready for the big game, too! ;-)

Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

The cardinals are pretty...I'm calling hubby to ask him to pick up birdseed on his way home. Forget about the bread and milk. LOL!
Living it up at Lakewood,

I am so excited about the game! So are my kids, who haven't seen this kind of year for Bama in their LIVES! Any other year and we'd have went to Pasadena too, but not this year. Oh well...I am happy to watch on TV!! Roll Tide!!
