The colors of Christmas are so great but with the trees it is all about the shine. That sparkle you get with the reflections, double and triple the amount of light coming off of the tree. A simple set of white lights thumbtacked to the facing board of my front door outside makse the decoration look professional. It really isn't, but the rows of light around the door makes it look like a magical entry.
Other ornaments remind us of present and past people in our lives. The boys have ornaments with their names printed on them made by their aunts. Baseball bats with Andy and Aaron printed on them still hang on the tree. I have a fisherman and fish that was given to me that always reminds me of my Dad.
This feeder took a hit yesterday by one of my squirrels. His excitement and energy broke up the one side of this feeder. It was already damaged on the other side but now this won't be used as a feeder ever again. My wife bought this as a gift many years ago so maybe I can ask for a new one for Christmas. I thought maybe that I got a shot of a junco bird in the foreground, but I think it is a sparrow.
It was -2 F. this morning. It is a challenge for our old heating system on days like this. We are comfortable but we do add extra heating devices to help out certain rooms. The windchill last night while walking Barney tried to take off my face. I have an old stocking hat of the boys where the hat is pulled down over you head and the eyes and nose have openings. I will look stupid but maybe at night I can try using it.
I hope everyone is safe out there. Be careful. Thanks for stopping by today.
