Thursday so far

I turned the computer off before 11:30.  I finished rereading book 3 of Call the Midwife and went to bed before 12:30 a.m.  I think I fell asleep pretty quickly.  It was supposed to be super-cold last night, so I put my comforter and an afghan over my heavy green blanket.  I was nice and warm.  I woke at 7:00 a.m. for no apparent reason.  I quickly went back to bed and went back to sleep until 10:15 a.m.

I had Breakfast Blend tea this morning.  I like that kind.

When I went downstairs, I saw birds feeding at the birdfeeder.  I saw sparrows and juncos.  Dad said he'd seen the female cardinal earlier.  I didn't see any birds on the suet, but I'm sure they'll come.

I got a bunch of free books from promos.  I got a book by Hollis Shiloh, the tenth in the Shifters and Partners series.  I already had the first nine.  The ten together are now being offered as a box set.

A few hours later: The squirrel discovered the bird feeder.  Mom saw the doctor.  It turns out she doesn't have bronchitis, but does have acute sinusitis.  She got medicine for it.  I hope she doesn't share the sinusitis.

I said hi to Riah.

Later than that: Mom and I watched the last couple of episodes of season five of "Call the Midwife."  The last disc wasn't working in the DVD player, though it had worked fine on the computer.  We switched to Netflix.  Netflix cut bits of the episode, which I hadn't realized.  But they cut several minutes.

The 2016 Christmas special of "Call the Midwife" is on at 7:30 p.m. on Christmas day.  So we don't have long to wait.

I looked at the bird feeder and the suet again.  There was a sparrow on the suet, and a chickadee and a tufted titmouse were feeding at the feeder.

I chatted with A.W.

I read "Merry Christmas, Mr. Miggles."

Mom and I watched "The King's Speech."  She'd seen it before, but I hadn't.
