Guess what I got for Christmas?????
Four new Cardinals (birds). Some of You know I have been upset since I lost 40+ cardinals and other songbirds back in September. I did ask God if I could have some cardinals for Christmas. Yesterday morning 4 flew in! Two boys and 2 girls. They are not my original birds as everything seems so new to them. They were here this morning singing at dawn. I got a few pics to share with You of these fantastic birds. Other songbirds came in also. The Bird Sanctuary is full of singing again! I am so blessed.
Well, my big, maiden voyage Christmas Camping Trip in my new, old Van I converted, was a big flop. I got everything ready, even new tires, all loaded and ready to go. I then discovered a leak that said to me: You can not take the van on a road trip yet.
The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry! (Remember that!)
So, the good news is the kids and grandkids are coming here this weekend! My Daughter is taking great photos:
Really bad, windy, cold weather arrived Christmas Day, so it is good I was not on the road. I did get a tailpiece of that blizzard Euclid, but no snow. I spent the afternoon sitting in my big, warm bed with the window open on the courtyard, shooting pics of the new cardinals and drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows!
It turned out to be a great Christmas Day here!!! I have learned it is best to roll with the 'flow' when the van won't roll----------
