Festive February


As luck would have it, snow and ice returned.

The big visit is interspersed with snags.

Vacuum cleaner parts needed replacements.

Check engine light further altered plans.


The birds are happy enjoying the replenished

bird feeder.  They vie with one another for the

prime real estate spot at the feeder.  Fun to watch!

Less amusing were the icicles hanging from


power lines and delicate tree limbs.

We lost a big portion of a favorite of

our birds:  the beach plum branch lay

broken on the snow-covered ground.


Precious cargo is now on board and

en route to a very festive arrival in

snow country.  From two birthdays and

Valentine’s Day midway, the month of


February has been a series of celebrations.

Some quiet.  Others full of noise.  From hither

and yon, family is traveling to our neck

of the woods.  Birthday and Baptism.


Untold laughter. Hugs. Kisses. Stories await.  A

game of Scrabble or two. Home cooking or

restaurant, or order in.  Spontaneously done.

Singing, reading aloud, smiling, and talking


with our grandchild.  Teaching moments to

warm the heart!  This is family time.  Treasured

family time!  Another festive February.

Savor, relish, and may time stand still!
