1. A quiet Christmas - both children were with their spouses in their respective homes, so Mike and I had an enjoyable meal with my folks and my sister.
2. In the morning, we went to one of our favorite bird haunts, which have been very quiet for the past few weeks. However, I got several good pictures on that trip:
|Eastern phoebe - a common bird even at our house, but not easy to get a picture of.|
|Immature red-shouldered hawk. Immatures are difficult to identify, but this is what someone on a bird forum told me. I'll take his word for it. :-)|
|Cropped photo of a male belted kingfisher.|
3. Daughter gave us a duck-stamp jigsaw puzzle for Christmas. It's all metallic browns and golds, which is not easy on our OLD eyes. But we've had fun putting it together this week. Mike says we will frame it. :-)
4. Recent work:
One scarf on the left is mine; one I gave to my sister; the hat is in the "not sure yet" pile. The scarf in the right hand picture went to my daughter in law.
5. Two whole weeks of rest. I've needed it. The recuperation from this surgery takes longer than re-entry into society. I have really enjoyed this break.
