Cold!

The temperature dropped in to the single digits over night, that's pretty cold for us, and we only have a light skiff of snow on the ground.  When it gets cold like this the Koi go into a state of torpor and just lay on the bottom of the pond.  I got this picture befor the pond iced over.
As mentioned earlier, our little girl parakeet is laying eggs.  When there were two eggs I was thinking of naming the chicks lefty and righty, if they hatch and survive and all that.  When I checked the nest box this morning, there was a third egg, guess we'll have to get that baby naming book out again.   
This is more than a week after the first egg was layed.  Who knows, perhaps a chick will hatch on Christmas day.
