The View From My Window – Dec. 18, 2020

This was actually yesterday’s view, but most mornings are similar, I just love “my” turkeys! (Pete took my window screen off, so future views will be clearer.)

Sunday Fun Day With Lyra

Our 6YO granddaughter Lyra has been here since Friday and is going home tomorrow. She is SO much fun! We did a lot of stuff yesterday, were out and about, but today I couldn’t do much of anything (high pain/low mobility) so we hung out here and did stuff. We played our ukuleles – she …
