December 27, 2021 Monday--1:30pm
You know how I like to have current pictures--well, got a couple of older ones to show you before we get into this past week. Whenever Leah and I go to my infusions now I ask if we can get a cubicle with two chairs so Leah has a comfier place to sit. She got a picture of me under my warm blanket. This was the first Big I infusion, I believe.
I also asked her for a picture of the boys' new bunk bed set up from Ikea. Wow! Pretty cool! They've had this for a while now.
Okay--caught up. :)
We DID get snow!
I still wasn't feeling well and was still racing to the bathroom.
Woke up to a sparkly white blanket of snow.
Hopeful for a white Christmas for sure!
The Critter Cafe was busy all week.
But the thing that made me the most happy was seeing the partridges able to make their snow nests!
I love it when they can dig down a spot to be half buried to protect themselves against the wind.
I was on R&R recovering all week--from the vaccine. I had such bad reactions to the first two it was no surprise. Was barely able to even work on Christmas cards so a lot of mine will be really late this year because I have to get back to them soon. It's the thought that counts, right? As long as you get them before Valentine's Day--LOL! :)
I did make it over to McFamily's on Christmas Day!
Had a most wonderful visit.
The boys love maze books!
Blink can sleep through anything--LOL!
I did have to leave earlier than I had expected. Sitting in different chairs all day set off the neuropathy in my legs. But the boys got in their pajamas and we took pics in front of the tree before I left. Ian's got one front tooth coming in now.
I got sweet hugs goodbye. Was sad I was going to miss watching Rudolph with them...but by the time I left I had to have Leah help me down the front stairs because my legs were so weak and painful. Dagan gave me a ride home.
Leah sent me pictures since I missed the movie. :)
...and Liam were enthralled.
Oh, and it snowed all day long on Christmas!! Snowed last night again, too! Woke up to a blizzard this morning actually. It's awful to have to get around in, I know, but--homebound me--I LOVE IT!!
Hard to even get a picture of the Critter Cafe visitors with all the snow stuck to the patio door.
The partridges know right where to dig for seed in the snow...
...and the sparrows appreciate them unearthing those deeper seeds, that's for sure.
The blizzard white-out winds died down a while ago and I was finally able to get pictures of the snowbanks from the parking lot across the way. When the big plow was out there this morning all I could see were the blurry headlights and flashing lights through a wall of white swirling snow. But now you can see how much snow they moved about this morning.
They haven't been back of our building to get to the sidewalks on the walkway. That's always last on the snow removal list.
The patio has a few drifts now.
As I am typing this the partridges have been out there digging down in the snow. They're happy. The sparrows are happy. Annie and I are happy.
Leah plans on coming over this week. I need trash brought out and bird seed brought in--am not even walking all that well yet. Regardless, I promised Dagan and Leah I wouldn't do anything like that or climbing stools until I can feel my legs again. :) Anyways, we were thinking tomorrow but they are talking more snow...so maybe Wednesday.
Me--I need to get the 2022 bullet together and work on Christmas cards. That's about all that is on my to-do list this coming week.
Oh my! Three partridges are just parked in a planter box relaxing out there! I love that! I'll try to take a picture for you.
They are so seldom relaxed. I love to see them hanging out near or on my patio in the winter. That's the only time I can occasionally see them totally calm like that.
Well, it was a wonderful holiday. I hope you all had your own special memories. The new year is right around the corner. I won't see you before then so I wish you all a very happy new year. We are all hoping for a better, brighter one ahead. See you in 2022!! :) :)
