No, I’m not singing the Christmas carol but I had to show you all something that I can see from the red chair where I sit and read and sometimes nap. Up in the tree hangs what looks like a nest but it’s hanging down and swinging yet not falling to the ground. I tried to see it closer from the upstairs window which was inconclusive. It finally dawned on me! I think it’s an oriole nest – we did have orioles in our yard last summer and lo and behold they must have raised babies that I was unaware of. Don’t you think it looks like a Baltimore oriole nest like you see in the bird books? I do. I am going to watch it every day and when it comes down, I’m going to snag it.
My reply option is not working on the blog so I will have to answer/comment here. Rick is not planning to retire until he’s 70 – about 3-1/2 years from now. The way I see it is that I’ll be ready for him to be around the house by then. I will have adjusted nicely to retirement and can be more patient with him. Lord – help me!
Connie had planned a Christmas brunch for all of us this morning but school was called off because of the weather so we had to cancel, too. That’s 2 years in a row now this party has been cancelled. I was planning to take pictures of everybody and catch you up on their news but now it will have to wait.
More later about Christmas – I just had to slip that oriole nest into the conversation.
