Happy New Year

Or is it....another snow storm overnight! Then I woke up not feeling very well at all. Nooooo! I hadn't been drinking. Just didn't feel right. Told my other half that if I died before lunch time....just throw me in a snow bank.

I've been most of the morning pushing myself to take the tree and all decorations down. I'm up to my ears in boxes and bags and just feel like saying the heck with it and leaving it as it is until tomorrow. Still, I suppose if I continue it will all be done and I can settle back and relax. I just wasn't into the holiday spirit much this year. I've been thinking of things that I want to do over the winter. I do this every year at this time and never seem to achieve any of my goals. Sigh! I didn't stay up to bring the new year in, haven't for years. We were in bed at 9:00 o'clock, reading. Roger usually walks up the road at midnight, goes out on the bank overlooking the ocean and looks for omens in the sky. The weather was just too bad last night.

I'm so looking forward to the bees, butterflies and bugs to come again and have been missing using the macro on my camera. Yesterday it cleared so thought I'd take the camera and have a look around. I saw some small berries so decided to use the macro. They look as big as apples, lol, but are really quite small. Then this morning took a couple of pictures of a nuthatch weathering the snow. Poor little nutty.

Like the new format of the blog, but something weird is happening - my mouse arrow disappears when I'm running it over, and couldn't see where it was at all to click on the post message box???? Weird, it's fine on the other two webpages I have open so not my mousey. And it works on this pop-up box, just not the main bit of your blog.

Hmmmm! not sure I understand what you're saying. If you mean when you put your mouse on the part I've written, I tried it and it's very faint.

Love the berry photos and the cold looking nuthatch. It's been snowing here all day - only now starting to lie though.
