What did I get for Christmas?
Friends ask what I got for Christmas. Well, receiving Christmas presents is not important to me. Giving them is. Mostly I get the greatest joy in giving a gift to someone that does not expect to get one. Like a scarf that I crocheted for my favorite deli clerk at Walmart.
This is my Christmas Eve visitor. He flew past my front window and I could tell he was going to land somewhere. Terry and I hurried to the kitchen window and sure enough, there he was perched in the tree outside my kitchen window. Actually, I think HE is a SHE.
No matter, for some reason I am always thrilled to see a hawk up close. Even though I feed the birds, I have an agreement with hawks. They are welcome, but they can't eat in my yard.
(Yes, Jeanne, that's part of my Kookiness and I LOVE it).
