MY Bluebird of Happiness!

My bucket-list desires aren't always all that big, but often difficult to come by. To have a tree outside our daughter's front window, and a myriad of bird varieties coming by, I got lots of photo-focus practice...and then came the snow!

It's been a wonderful Christmas holiday here on the east coast and we had The Best time with the little GrandBuddies! The time was excellent and the memories perfect...and I have LOTS of good images to sort through in the New Year!

Heading to California tomorrow... I'll make a New Year's wish again that I just might possibly get "even a little" caught up! Ken and I send Love and Good Health to you all in the New Year! ♥
Perfect!

@nearlyincontrol Thank you! I'm fully enamored with the snowfall! (Back in CA I suppose I'll resort to an app!"

@pdulis Thank you so much, Peter!

@louannwarren This final day for my (ahem...several hundred) bird photos has been a delight! We hate to leave and say the last good-byes, but looking for new adventures ahead...or, maybe NO adventures...and time to get caught up! Happy New Year!

@elkereturns In Lunenburg, and now MA, we'll be bidding the Blue Jays farewell until summer! (I could see them in the mountains outside the LA basin, but may just be glad settle down for a while!) Thanks for the ♥ : )

@seattlite Thanks, Gloria! I always appreciate your generous insight : ) Happy New Year!

@Cherrill Happy New Year! Back in CA "on the other side"...jet lagged, but glad to start settling in again. I look around at "a squirrel here"..."2 ducks there"... but "Marine Layer Haze" doesn't have the photographic charm of snow! See you again soon on the block!

@allie912 To have a White Christmas with snow falling all day, the day's activities with grandchildren and birds just outside the front window, that was "A Gift Basket" of moments for my Bucket List, and then my friends here sent it to be tied up with a bow! Wow!
