I had to laugh at this:
This may look like everyone is watching Baby Jesus. If you notice, though, there
are three little deer in the middle.
Baby Jesus was way over on the side, with a little black lab watching him... and a part of the stable laying near him.
Everyone surrounded Him in the entrance way nativity scene.
Jester is always with me, and wondered why I was laughing.
I'll fix the big Nativity tomorrow so Baby Jesus has a chance to
lay in the manger a few nights.
I took some things from my friend Valerie's house to the transfer station today (dump) and
found this on top of the "office" for the two guys who do the dumping and gathering.
Here was their other decoration. Even the dump workers have the Christmas spirit.
I unplugged the new water fountain when I got to the old place today... it has to be filled daily, and I don't think we are going to make it out there tomorrow. I did fill it full... but did not leave the heater on. It is supposed to rain tomorrow, and be 40 degrees, so the birds will be fine.
The dogs were so glad to get out for a while.
We had a clear night... I could see the beautiful stars for once... and
then about 2 hours of sunlight this morning...
and then gloom again.
So tired of it!
I saw this blue jay at the old house, but not the hundreds of birds that used to hang around there.
Here IS a hawk... I have come to learn where they are likely to be "hiding" now...
I was quite a way from him... and was only able to get him as he took off,
by craning myself in the front seat of the car.
He looked like a Coopers... but he was pretty far away.
I can't get the color any better with the weather like it is.
The horse herd I keep showing you was taking a siesta when we went by. They are actually looking pretty decent.
This guy was closer to home... and I was only able to pause for a minute. I'm going to be so glad to
have some sun again... but... we are now expecting rain for the next two days.
I have been looking at so much Christmas on Pinterest that I am almost Christmas'd out... so next year, I won't do that so much.
We're on the downhill run!
