The Librarian

An icky grey day

The white stuff started coming down late yesterday afternoon and it's still at it. Not a lot ... it's those little dried up snow pellets, so about 50% of the grass is showing through ... it's just gloomy and sucking away any ambition to do anything. On the plus side of the day, I saw a bluejay fluttering around our courtyard this afternoon. Not a big deal if you live in the east, but they are incredibly rare out here (they only just started appearing in Alberta in the early eighties ... presumably following the birdfeeder trail out west ***grin***) and it was nice to see that bit of vivid blue brightening the day for a few minutes. :-)
