Well I told y'all I was going to enjoy Christmas this year and so far so good! I'm not allowing it to get o me!! No way Jose!
Today I packed up a box and it's labeled with shipping & ready to go to my son and his GF...now this is something I enjoy doing! I fill it with stuff they would never bother to waste money on, like reindeer antler headbands and Elf hats with big ears on it...and chocolate candy!!
So on the way to the post office I stopped and had a walk around the lake at Goodale park, my local...IT was so warm high was 70 today! I was the only person at the lake...it was nice to be alone! Nature provided me with easy, simple, pleasures!
Like these Coralberries decorating a cedar tree Nature has her own way of sprucing things up..
...here is a yellow rump who followed me around for a while enjoying a berry snack..
More hanging decorations but these are of the man made kind not as pretty...
speaking of pretty paper, check out this River Birch Tree
Pretty ribbons? Nope but got it all tied up anyways...
and you can almost see a glint of red on the crown of this Ruby Crowned Kinglet, he was eyeing me up pretty good!
A Northern Mockingbird, looked a little ruffled!
These 2 Pied Billed Grebes were calm as cucumbers not a care in the world...
We are hosting the Holiday meal this year and it will be a simple root roast with Potatoes, carrots, parsnips, sweet onion, mushrooms and peppers! I'll add some sweet peas a couple of store bought pies and Mom is making her Cornbread Stuffing.
