As I write this holiday wish I can see four pheasants running across my neighbors lawn. The suet feeder just outside my window is a very popular place and Blue Jays, Nuthatches, Chickadees, Titmice, and Downy Woodpeckers are all visiting frequently. Out over the lake I see two giant white birds and from this distance it’s hard to tell but I think they are Mute Swans. Cardinals are on the ground just outside my window and Ms Beanz is sitting at her favorite place on my desk where she watches the bird feeder. It’s a Good thing she’s small—there isn’t much room on my desk. Bo is at my feet under my desk and Rob is upstairs teaching a systems class online. I am reminded that life is good and minding the small stuff is sometimes a very good thing!
Despite a lousy economy and a bad year for business in general, I’m a happy camper. We survived the year, overcame two incredible health issues (his and hers), and added to our family (Ms Beanz). We are hopeful for our future and thankful for our family, friends, and followers! And we wish you the best of holidays.
I thought you might enjoy seeing these photos of Bo and Ms Beanz helping to decorate (or should I say deck?) our Christmas tree. If you don’t have pets I highly recommend it. These photos say it all!
Happy Holidays and wishing you the very best for a wonderful new year!
