Rollin on a River — not yet

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

rollin rollin rollin on a river. Rivers now with sheen of ice couldn’t roll far on them now without taking a dip in icy cold. The ducks don’t seem to mind. Always have wondered how one part of their body is fluffy and warm with feathers and another part reptilian. It’s snowy again out there. When I woke up I thought I saw sunlight through the blinds and so was prepared for the snow to be gone. Instead what I thought was sunlight was the brightness of the snow across the land.

SoCS — role/roll

      Thank you Ruth! Michigan used to have (maybe still does) the nickname Winter Wonderland. What most don’t know is it isn’t wonder as in wonderous, but wondering when winter will leave 😉

    I’ve often wondered about how birds can survive in the cold so well. Nature is amazing. Good song, too. Rollin, rollin …..

      I know what you mean. One of the main birds coming in to the feeder are chickadees, and they are so tiny, it’s a wonder they can generate enough heat to stay alive!

    Ducks *are* fascinating, aren’t they? I see them on the ponds around here and just shake my head, wondering how they can stand temps so cold…
