Manic Monday - Carol

Some of my favorite memories of celebrating Christmas is caroling.
We dressed warmly and wandered about the neighborhood singing carols.
We were always very well received and being able to bring some
cheer to neighbors is always a gift!

One of my favorite Christmas carols is "Silent Night," which has the
ability to make me cry. This beautiful carol was originally played by a guitar because the organ was broken.

Photo Hunt - Long

I don't have any photos of anything long in my collection, so here is what I long for: Peaceful places and solitude...
The first photo is taken from the Kilawea Lighthouse in Kauai. This little island is covered with nesting birds.

The second photo is of my cousin's "nest" in the mountains. With the winter storm covering most of California, I imagine it's covered in white by now. It's such a lovely, quiet place to nest...

Hummer Update

The Hummingbird feeder I got at the Wren's Nest is working miracles! I hung the feeder right outside on the front patio, tucked closely to a big hanging fern so she'd feel protected. I've seen her feasting away twice. Mo told me that this was a great feeder and boy, was he ever right!
Take a peek at the Wren's Nest and see if this feeder would work for you. There are many other neat things to see, too, if feeders aren't for you.

definitely a masseuse!

We have the sweetest little hummingbird in our yard. I was out watering the other day and she hovered about, keeping an eye on me. As she flitted from branch to branch, the sun would catch the iridescence of her feathers: Her wings became a vivid blue-green and her little head would flash a gorgeous magenta. It was just for a fleeting moment and only when the sun shone directly on her. I thought such a simple thing was such a wondrous gift. I love color and when it comes in small doses with mighty expectations, the brilliance is simply overwhelming.

We had to cut down the last of the trumpet vine that was still in bloom, in order to fix our fence. I ordered a feeder from Mo's
"The Wren's Nest," and it arrived today. I quickly cooked up some sugar water for her and hope it will get her through the winter. It's the least I can do to thank her for the joy of her presence in my yard.

Manic Monday - Ship

Miss Bee - this one's for you!!! I bet they didn't have a swimming pool on board this old lady of the ocean. I have no idea what year this was supposed to be, and I've refused to watch "The Titanic," just on general principles.
I imagine all of the rich and famous dressed to the nines! Can you imagine if FiFi and Foo-Foo had walked into the dining room with the bicycle pants and comb-over???

I only have two packages to ship - I'm so fortunate my family lives close by!

Please be certain to visit Manic Monday
the brain child of our Marvelous Mo!

Photo Hunt - Red

The hard frost we had last winter killed all of my hibiscus but I was told not to remove them until spring; sure enough, what looked dead truly wasn't! New growth was bursting forth and I remembered to have faith in all situations.
