Storing Up For Winter

I wrote this four years ago………different yard to view now, different town, but still feel the same.

Happy December 2017 Everyone!

I’m sitting at my kitchen table enjoying a cup of coffee with my blueberry bagel.  I love to sit here and think and read blogs and look outside every few seconds.  Today is warmer than last week but we were still coated with a glimmer of frost earlier.

The backyard is very busy this morning,  We have a large oak tree about 3 yards off the house so there is an abundance of acorns on the ground.  Well, the ones the squirrels didn’t get and the ones the dogs didn’t eat.  Out there I see a small flock of robins, a bluejay, two black-capped chickadees and a common flicker (woodpecker) so close I could see the whites of his eyes.  Well, the blacks of his eyes.  I never was so close to this bird before.  The cardinals are visiting also.  Very busy.  I love it.  There is something about God’s beautiful artistic talent that just brings me great joy and happiness.  I am very thankful I get to be part of this scenery.

Life is so full of bumps and bruises and breaks that I often welcome a scene full of life and peace and normalcy.  A great way to start the new week.

Squirrel!

Squirrel!

Enjoy!

    • Oh dear. I’ve been praying for those fires to stop. We have peeps in Ventura. They left and their house is fine. Others have car loaded waiting to see if wind will change. It’s crazy.

      • Hi Cate– yep, Ventura was hit hard in the hills. Glad they came out OK. How’s the weather with you?? are you into real winter yet?? I’d love to live where there are (not too severe) seasons! 85 degrees here today! take care friend. xox
