What is it about watching the birds? It's relaxing, it's humorous, it's addictive! Our feeders are right outside the computer window, so I turn my head to the right for entertainment while waiting for a download, or more often...inspiration!
We have two manly red cardinals and two whopper blue jays who seem to be the same size as doves. They're huge, and so, so bright!
The tiny wrens are the most plentiful at the feeder, and surge from bush to feeder en mass. It's a group thing with them!
The days roll by faster as our December calendars fill up. It's so easy to put ourselves last. Girls...we need to stop doing that! Tomorrow my MIL and I are attending a Christmas Tea with the college president, Jo, the first female college prez at our tiny, local institution. She sent invites to gals in town over the age of 50. Whether it be sympathy, or curiosity, we're going...to listen to the hand bells, drink their tea, and scarf up some sweet goodies.
I'm going to feel girly, and kick back, and enjoy the affair. No boxes to empty, no wet basement to mop up, and the dog poop in the yard can just stay there for a day!
Santa Wisdom: Dream what you want to dream; Go where you want to go; Try to be who you really are, Because life is short, and often only gives one chance to do things.
Let's jump in girls, and live a little bit more just for ourselves. We don't always need to be on the back burner, or swallow words, or think, 'oh well, it doesn't matter, really'...
