December has flown by as fast as a live trap catches a possum!
AnnaMarie and I took a class on identifying trees by their twigs and bark (some are pretty hard!), and we've been practicing keying out the trees in our woods (like this shingle oak twig).
The birds have been flocking to the feeders with the colder weather. We try to wonder who will feed them when we're not here next year. . . .
Christmas was special this year, being on Sunday. We went to a short church service, then spent the day quietly enjoying each others' company (and some presents!). Now it's time to started sorting, cleaning, and ridding ourselves of all the extra things we have accumulated these past six years, getting ready to move (this time for real). My, how they add up!
I hope that your December has been a profitable one, full of many sweet blessings. Here's to a happy, peaceful new year!
