It’s the last week of the year. I have been thinking long & hard about P365 & whether I want to continue doing it for a 5th year. And for now the answer is yes. I won’t guarantee what day I’ll post my pictures, but Dr. M & I enjoy it too much to let it drop now. That being said, this week was for the birds. Ha!
Sunday, December 22nd
Sunday was a quiet day of church and relaxing around my dad’s house. Dr. M took pictures of birds through the rain-washed windows in the sun room. The top photo has a titmouse on the left & male & female house finches on the right. The bottom photo is a female cardinal.

Dr. M drove out to see his dad & passed by one of his favorite sheep farms along the way. We love this dog!
Amy & I dressed alike to walk at the mall :)
My dad cut two bunches of collards to give away. Wow that’s a lot of collards!

We spent Christmas Eve evening with Dr. M’s brother & his family.
After dinner we went to check out our niece Misty’s lights. She & her husband really go all out each year!
Wednesday, December 25th
Christmas was SUCH a busy day! Breakfast at my brother & sister-in-law’s house, brunch at Amy’s daughter’s house, & then dinner with Dr. M’s uncle & aunt & family. I started out taking pictures but then just totally forgot for the rest of the day. This is Dr. M at my brother’s house mesmerizing their dog Chloe.
His Christmas gift from my sister-in-law. It came in such an innocent package!
I am excited about this gift!
My oldest nephew – wearing a tie to Christmas breakfast. I had to have a picture!

More birds – there’s such a variety at my dad’s house! Blue Jay, titmouse & male cardinal here.

Another in the series of photos of critters who stare at Dr. M. Ha!
I started a totally new scarf pattern today. I like it!
My dad’s Christmas cactus is outrageous! It’s a family heirloom – from a cutting from my great-grandmother’s plant.
Saturday, December 28th
We had breakfast with some of my best friends today – we’ve been getting together at least annually for 30 years now. We were missing one of our members – J had the flu. Boo!
One last shot of NC birds. In this group is (clockwise from top): Bluebird, sharp-shinned hawk, mourning dove, Carolina wren, mockingbird, and goldfinch.
Have a great week!
Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. He also takes pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710. The Bug uses our new Nikon Coolpix S6200 most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
