I am finding myself popping Vitamin D and watching the weather reports like crazy. So, anyway, this week was the first week back from Christmas vacation which is always a toughie for me mentally but i was thankful it was a week without any work. So, I started on some of my lists of things to do that I was looking forward to. In between my to do lists I found myself wasting time on the computer (I know, what a shock!) and found this blogger who lives here in the Indy area and who also follows some blogger friends of mine from Michigan...I know, small world. Anyway, she had a post about this wonderful cupcake shop here in Indianapols called "The Flying Cupcake". To see her gorgeous post click here and scroll down the page until you find the post called "The Flying Cupcake". She has one of those big, fancy cameras that can actually do justice to this very cool, fun, happy little shop. Here are some pics of mine but really go feast your eyes on hers. When I did, I called my friend Pam and said "Hey, instead of boring old Starbucks, lets go get happy and eat some cupcakes!" I needed the charm of this cheery little shop to break me out of my winter blues and it did the trick. The cupcakes were amazing and the atmosphere very mid-May like.
Pam.....eating a coconut cream filled one.
Something I actually look FORWARD to about winter is bird watching.
Some of you know I love feeding winter birds and this morning while Matt was at church, Evalee and I sat and watched birds for about 30 minutes. It was a precious time, and we had fun. I tried to catch some pics of some of the birds using my digital zoom but do I have to say it again....my camera SUCKS. But here they are anyway....

This is a red-bellied woodpecker and although his head is red it is NOT a red-headed woodpecker. Those are actually quite rare and hard to find.
This is a little Junco hidden in my wisteria vines...
