Mister and Miss Cardinal

It’s Miss Cardinal because I didn’t ask them if they were a couple or not ๐Ÿ™‚ย  But in the meantime, here it is the week of Thanksgiving and we are left with the question for this year – to have visitors or to go visit!ย  We shall be cooking for two and will call/Zoom/Facetime family.

I’m a little sad because just this past weekend was the little guys 4th birthday and I realized I haven’t seen him in over a year.ย  It stings a bit when I’m talking to his dad or mom and he says “Hi Nana! Where are you?”ย  But at least I get Facetime kisses to soothe the missing him… a bit.

His older brother is just about ready to get his drivers license.ย  Whatever happened to the little guy who I was teaching how to ride a tricycle???ย  And then there’s the middle grand (a girl) who had as part of a school project a baby (toy) to bring home and take care of.ย  It died on her once; they were allowed one fail.ย  I am not going to let her live this one down any time soon!ย  Oh no!!!!

So what about that project I was working on? Well,ย  I’ve learned that I not only hate having my photo taken but I also hate being on video!ย  I could possibly do a podcast providing you only heard me.ย  But be that as it may, thing were sent in and I am awaiting final word on if it is a Yes or a No.ย  Will keep you informed.ย  And while waiting for the judgement on that project I received another email about another one!ย  Hoo boy!!!!ย  I told them I was interested and now I wait to see if that turns into anything.

And last but not least… I’m fluffing up my Etsy photo art shop for holiday shopping.ย  I’m tired, people, but I’m thankful for all I have and that we are still virus safe although they have ramped up the mask requirements and a curfew is in effect cause rates have gone up.ย  Could someone tell me why I cannot find any Windex anywhere?ย  I mean I get the TP and paper towels bit but Windex?

Oh well, wash your hands, wear a mask, socially distance and/or do whatever else is necessary to stay safe.

    Definitely a cardinal difference between the two. Great photos. We don’t have cardinals out here, at least the feathered type, that I’ve seen.

  2. These are berautiful. Happy Thanksgiving!

    I’m not sure any of us like seeing ourselves on video. I did a few YouTube videos and then stopped. I didn’t enjoy the process. Have a happy Thanksgiving even if it isn’t the way you’d like the day to pan out. At least there’s Zoom. Better safe, than sorry.๐Ÿฆƒ

    Great photos-it still looks so green where you are. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, it stings to not be together at holiday time; we’ve done the zoom family holiday thing already twice this year and it sure isn’t the same. But do all you can to protect one another this year so you can celebrate together next year!

    I love cardinals, and remember them from back east. Unfortunately they don’t come this far west.
