Thursday In The Woods

I'm having coffee in my Eeyore cup.
Watching a small woodpecker eat from the suet.
A cute brown bird is watching.
Wish I knew what kind it was.
The bird, I know the suet.
Berry or peanut.
 
Meredith Ann is taking a bubble
next to the heater vent.
 
Jodie Belle is in the chair
on the soft blanket
looking at the woodpecker.
 
Maddy Jean is blocking the front door.
She naps a lot but who cares.
She's with us.
Enough said.
 
The rest of the purr gang
are around here somewhere.
Riley was just in the living room
looking at the birds out front.
I have a big area with four suet's
going for his entertainment.
 
Jasmine was upstairs.
She came out and sang to me.
She's a sweet Siamese sometimes.
And, remember the sometimes.
 
Me, I'm staying home today.
Making a list.
Checking it twice.
Have things to do.
 
Been way too busy with my health issues.
Now, to enjoy just regular life.
Like people do.
Oh, that might be fun.
 
The Holidays are coming.
Several boxes have shown up.
 
I went to the post office yesterday.
First time that I'd driven in weeks.
The health thing.
 
Was sort of fun.
Went well.
No problems.
 
Have I done any shopping.
No.
Am I worried about it.
Not really.
 
This year I'm just going to enjoy
the music and the shows
and the fun of it.
 
I might get my family a thing or two
but nothing big like I've done before.
Stocking stuffers perhaps.
 
And, that is the latest
in my very frozen woods.

I think my boys would love to come over and watch bird TV at your place. :-)

Good for you for cutting back this holiday and not feeling you *have* to do something big, what with all you've endured this year. Time to put your Self first, IMO.

Sounds like some fun and relaxation going on! Great big hugs to you from all of us!

Bird tv at your house is much better than ours! We'll be right over!

A woodpecker! I haven't seen one of those in eons. Here's to relaxing in wonderful surroundings!

That's a wonderful attitude to have about the holidays. Enjoy them!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
