We burned a few calories keeping warm and walking. We saw lots of birds and were amazed at how loud the birdsong was in the forest.
I thought I would share with you what a minimalist asked for this Christmas:
A double-decker bird feeder (with attached suet). We are still in the process of attracting birds as there are few large trees right around the house but a quarter of a mile away there is a thick woods where they hang out. A few finches have found us, they are very shy so no photos yet. I took this photo this morning, as you can tell there is thick fog about today. This feeder is five feet from our patio so we can sit at the dining room table and watch them. Hubby also got me some smelly candles from Bath and Body works, my favorite. The kids got me a gift certificate to Canadian Tire where I can buy seeds, plants and flowers to my hearts content (I asked for it). Mom bought me a beautiful faux fur blanket to go on the bottom of our bed and some warm socks. She also found me a couple of antique/vintage bottles for my collection.
Happy Sunday! Linking up with Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage for Favorite Things.
