Tree

After 15 years of blogging, I’ve come to hate titles. All these years.. through so many iterations of this blog.. I think I’ve utilized every conceivable title twice over. So ‘tree’; we’ll keep it simple.

Hate this year’s lights. I like soft, twinkly little fairy lights but these were at Home Depot for 5 bucks a box, so the man picked them up and voila! We’re blessed with these harsh, bright, non-twinkly bastards.

That’s okay. I’ve got an entire year to find the correct lights.

Well, that sounds bitchy. Which is not what I’m feeling at all.

Ten

My funny little girl is ten today. I can’t believe it.

And used to go into the spare room to look at herself for company when her sister died.

And August of this year. A little the worse for wear, but still my lovely girl.

Happy Birthday you silly, hardheaded bitch. You’re not going anywhere soon.

I had to get a photo of her today, though it’s not like she was going to look at me! This was right after her bath.

Anhinga

This female Anhinga could have been the ‘Totem’ bird. Took the picture from a fair distance, so it’s not exceptional… but I could identify her.

According to my Birds of North America its proper name is ‘Anhinga Anhinga’, which is a little strange since all the other birds have strings of unpronounceable names…
