Feeding the Brain

Just got into this book...it's chock-full of interesting 
exercises (food) for the brain.


From page 25..create a pictogram from four straight lines and a circle to describe each of these words...Pressure...Delirious...Lucky...Suspense...Dangerous...and Joyful. Arrange the lines and the circles in any fashion but you can only use four lines and the circle. The lines must be the same length and the  circle must remain whole.

Froze-in

The freezing rain/drizzle is moving on out and I know the birds and rabbits are giving thanks. I go out in my coveralls and muck boots to break the ice off the bird feeders and in a short time they are ice covered again

Can't touch the holly for the fear of it breaking.

Every surface is covered. The grass island seen across
the drive is near to the ground with ice.

The hump-a-lump tree looks to be dripping icy tears.

This Nandina,  a very large one  is having a real struggle.
I do wish the berries could be enjoyed by the birds, rabbits and
deer but they are toxic to all animals.
