I saw the heron standing at the waters edge when i walked over the red footbridge. A couple of mocking birds where flying about and i also saw a few chickadees.
There are many benches along the path around the lake and they have plaques on them honoring or in memory of someone. For the past three years that i have been walking here each Christmas a wreath like this one has been placed behind this bench on the little hill. The ornaments on the wreath are made of bird seed. It always touches my heart to see this and to read the plague.
The daylight hours will now be starting
to get longer minute by minute. : )
******************************************When i came home from my walk there was a little gift bag sitting in the wreath on my front door. Inside was a card that said Merry Christmas and these five mini candles. The card was not signed so i have no idea who it is from. A nice little surprise. : )
I'm always glad when Christmas is over. I am not a big holiday person, and not sure why. Maybe because i expect it to be more than it is and it really is just another day. I prefer the ordinary every day goings on in life. With no expectations every day is great just in itself.
I took advantage of the sunny day and did a load of whites and hung them outside. There is still a bit of a breeze so they should dry fast. I've already done my Body Electric workout and a few other chores around the house.
Ken is off own his own this morning but we are meeting up later for lunch and then i'm not sure what the rest of the day will bring.
Hope your day is a happyone.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone : )
People are so worried about what they eat
between Christmas and the New Year,
but they really should be worried about what
they eat between the New Year and Christmas.
