I took this picture today, as the rain was pouring down. We're having a tree cut down (the last of our big oaks, it's very sad), and there are a bunch of these tiny birds living in the pile of branches. The don't seem to mind the rain, and were flitting about, so I got out my zoom lens and was able to get a little closer look.
I am enjoying the rain by staying warm and dry and knitting. I might even bake a cake later. There will be photos of these happy events later. I learned how to do a provisional cast-on this week, something that has eluded me for a very long time. This video shows what I think has got to be the easiest way, ever, so I thought I'd share (embedding is disabled, so you'll have to click the link).
