A sunny day...

here in Big-Mountain-Snow-on-Top.  A group of snotty ravens are strutting across the grass, picking through the frost for whatever they can find.  (Mean girls at the Abercrombie clearance sale can't do disdain better than ravens.) Earlier this morning, a male downy woodpecker perched on the tree outside my window. And our northern flicker has been hanging around. She scares the finches away from the feeder, eats holes in our windowsills, and wakes us up at dawn with her brdbrdbrdt! But I love her anyway.

Das Kinder want me to post their silly sentences.  A sentence using the longest words possible:

Once, a humuhumunukunukuapua'a, who believed in antidisestablishmentarianism, went to Mississippi and discovered bioluminescence.

Alliterative sentences:

An absolutely annoying alligator and an artistic anteater ate applesauce and apricots at an aquarium.

Completely constipated, crazed cats could crave colorful, chunky chicken.

Doofus doggies devoured delicious dill doughnuts daily.  

Sparklee plans for the day:
Get this heavy, snoring beast out of my chair so I can sit down.  (No, I'm not referring to Dad Sparklee.)
Drink too much coffee while watching CBS Sunday Morning.
Work on Iditarod project, Bison scrapbook, and chemistry experiments.
Try to get outside and work off those coffee jitters, if it gets above 35 degrees. 

Hope it's sunny where you are!
