|Lakeside Encrusted In Ice|
So what is new from the patio; we survived the ice storm & several long power outages. The ice storm rolled in Wednesday late afternoon & stayed around until Thursday afternoon. We lost power for several hours on Wednesday & most of all day Thursday & again for a few hours on Friday. Thankfully the ice did not cause damage to our trees other than a few branches down. On my walk Sunday there was a lot of chain saw noise. Ice has melted off the trees, now to clean up the debris.
The newly returned Robins are really struggling in the cold & one blog group I follow along with were asking people to put out berries such as blueberry & raspberry for the Robins, which I was happy to do.

New movie; The Danish Girl, which I quite liked & it made me cry. Eddy Redmayne is an amazing actor, HE totally disappears into the characters he plays. Alicia Vikander certainly deserved the Oscar for B.S.A.

New to me book series I have started is The Morland Dynasty by Cynthia Harrod Eagles. This series starts with a family in 1434 & the author is supposedly taking the Morland family right up to the present day. Currently there are 35 books in the series. She originally started to write the series as a commission for teaching students (in GB) history in a connecting / interesting way. I am a huge fan of history & historical novels & I am missing Downton Abbey. I need a fictional family drama to follow. I have just finished book 1 of this series, The Founding & ready to start book 2, The Dark Rose. The Morland Dynasty has a Wikipedia page.
