Not ready for this

I was out on the porch this morning, getting things cleaned up and put away, when I realized someone was staring at me.

Me: Can I help you?
Finch: Do you have a computer in that house?
Me: Yes – why do you ask?
Finch: Did you look at the weather this morning?
Me: Yep.
Finch: Did it really say it may snow later today?
Me: I’m afraid so, yes.finch2Finch: I am so not ready for this.
Me: I don’t think any of us is ready for it, but that never keeps it from coming.finch3Finch: You won’t let the birdfeeders run out will you?
Me: Never!
Finch: Great – I’ll see you out back then.
Me: I’ll be the one with the camera.finch1

    Thanks for the giggle this morning. Mr Finch is quite the conversationalist! Don’t you think that just because I’m in Atlanta that we are guarded from cold weather. It’s going to dip into the 30’s on Sunday night. This does not happen here in October!!! Brrr….bundle up and keep feedin’ those birdies!

    What a cute wee bitty finch!

    Okay – how do I find that peach cobbler recipe? I’ve got my pen. I’ve got my index card. I’ve got cold weather. Where’s the recipe? All I get is a picture!

    Ellyn – as your Mother, I mean this in the most nurturing and identity-affirming way possible: bite me!

    You are a veritible Dr. Doolittle! Talking to the birds. I agree with the finch though – I’m not ready for cold weather!
