I got all my Christmas orders in yesterday finally and the list is FINAL! I have to get things shipped by the10th because my daughter and I do the Advent Calendar. It is the annual "Christmas Crunch"! But I think I am doing okay this year but we'll see. I am not making as much as I usually do so that helps.
I filled the bird bath today and they were enjoying it. I don't fill it during the summer because of mosquitoes. Yesterday I had a very special surprise.....a scarlet tanager was at my feeder! There's no mistaking them with their black wings and tail and red body! They're gorgeous! I thought they were an Eastern bird but maybe he was migrating. They say they are not seen very often so I felt very lucky indeed! I think it was the orange segments I put out there.
In between Santa's workshop hours I did manage to clear out the beans in the horse trough and since I've been doing "crafting" I have been reading on my "breaks". I finished a couple more........this one I've had for years and it is small so I was able to read it in one day! It's a good book to spur you on!
Now, I 'm reading this one................I have read 43 of my 75 book challenge for this year and I have 32 books left to read.....woe is me.......it will be the 3rd year I haven't met my goal.....maybe I should lower it this coming year.
Here are some seasonal add-ons.............
