Christmas Lights

Yesterday we drove into the city to see the Christmas lights (our annual tradition)-

Manitoba Legislative Building

Corner of Portage and Main

On St Annes

We came home and the lights in town are just as good -

The lights on the tractor at the John Deere dealership are always my favorite

This morning the gray partridges were back -


And the birds were busy at the feeder later in the day -



Not much seems to bother the bunny (the brown blob under the feeder)! If you listen carefully you can hear the sound of the birds wings at the end, as they take flight (and also the clock ticking - I don't normally notice it, but it is quite loud).

My dear friend Wendy sent me this wonderful fabric postcard -

She stitched a thick paper (thin card) onto the back, and it came through the mail beautifully. Thanks Wendy!!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!
