The picture with this post shows in flight, two mature Trumpeter Swans and one juvenile one. The header for today shows a flight of another four swans. The Trumpeter Swan is the largest water fowl in North America. These pictures are just snapshots in time, freezing a few of the steady stream of swans that over flew us when we were at Riverlands Conservation Area last Sunday. There were hundreds of them there, swimming.
Today is Epiphany, the twelfth day of Christmas. On Tuesday, we gave Joanie her presents. I gave her one of the calendars that I had made and Anne gave her the socks that she knitted for her, along with a bunch of other stuff. Anne is shown displaying the socks in the picture to the left.
Anne and I went back to work this week, I on Monday and Anne on Tuesday. We enjoyed our long winter break, what with Anne’s schools being off and my work being closed for the holiday week. The time off gave us time to do many different things. In addition to the pair of socks that she has just finished, Anne has a quilt project that is nearing completion. I would like to believe that our activities over the holidays have made this little blog a bit more interesting than usual, but now it is time to go back to work. So, coming up with something interesting to write about will become more of a struggle. So beware folks, we are on the eve of the blather season. In fact, it may have already begun. 😆
