God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Another Bird Visitor

I just thought I'd stop by to say hello & do a wee bit of catcing up up.  I finally got all the Christmas things put away a couple weeks ago.   Haven't really downsized them much as I decided it was more important to start downsizing things on the main floor rather than in the lower level.  I managed to get my yarn & some knitting items sorted out in between medical appointments.  Will be starting with the cross stitch items next.  eBay or wherever I decide to sell things is going to keep me very busy once that gets underway!

A female red-bellied woodpecker came to partake of some of our seeds today.  John & I always enjoy when she & her husband drop by, or some of her kin.

Speaking of me & John, yesterday we celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary!  Where does the time go?  We traveled to Lexington to eat at our favorite seafood restaurant & spent the day reminiscing about all these years.  We're looking forward to the next 41   : )

Our temperature this weekend is predicted to be 70 degrees!  I am not amused!  

I hope all is going well with everyone!

Happy Anniversary! We're supposed to have temps in the 60's this weekend and we're seeing signs of spring. I love seeing the red-bellied woodpeckers.
