It's -22C these days and I hate the thought of animals not only freezing but starving. (It's -35C in Moscow which is ridiculous!)

Today I put out nine slices of bread because the first two sets of three I initially put out were immediately gone. I know it's the Jays. They come in and steal all the bread from the Great Tits and Sparrows. Which is fine since the smaller birds prefer seeds anyway. I also put out some salo, which is basically a slab of animal fat. Birds LOVE it in winter months.

I grew up in Arizona, moved to San Francisco when I was 22, and then moved to Russia when I was 44. The whole concept of Winter is still pretty new to me. We had snow at our cabin in Pine, Arizona but it was maybe two inches? I can spend every day, three times a day shoveling snow and never be finished. I'm also a terrible snow-walker, though I have become better. I used to fall almost every day trying to walk in snow. I asked N for clamp-ons my first several years here, to no avail. (I think that would've been "steedno", shameful. ;) )

Okay, time to check on the cats.
