Serenading Me - - - Thank You

I awoke to a soft, dusky sky and his serenade - it just gives me goosebumps - I wanted to get up to take in his majesty but knew I'd disturb him so lay content to listen.

He varied between three and five "songs" before the music stopped abruptly - perhaps he spied his breakfast in the orchard or it was just bedtime for him.

Opened the blinds hoping to catch a glimpse to see if it were a white or grey owl. He was no where to be seen.

Pinging Pears

So, today I canned 14 pints of pears. Haven't canned in so many yeas, I guess since I retired.

Now I'm sitting in the rocker in the kitchen listening for the happy pings of the jars.

(Doesn't take much to amuse me:)

So, have you had yours? Went yesterday on my way to visit Hubby - took only minutes in line and to get "shot".

If you oppose 'flu shots, why? People have valid concerns - would be interested to hear yours.
