My hibernation season is officially over. Two warm days in a row coaxed the camera and me out of the house. I walked at Lake Lawson Lake Smith city park, and was in the right place at the right time to see this Cooper’s Hawk–just before the crows served an eviction notice.
Wow, it’s hard to imagine a month has passed since my last blog post. WordPress recently announced my 7-year blog anniversary. What a way to celebrate that milestone–it’s like I put a sign in the window ‘Closed for Hibernation.’ Except I forgot to post the sign and went right to sleep.
To be honest, recent software updates require me to sign in and get an authenticator code every time I leave a comment. Sometimes, the comment I had written disappears. It’s been a bit frustrating, so I’m trying to overcome that and still maintain security of online accounts. If you haven’t heard from me lately and have a Facebook account, please look me up and send a friend request:

I’m hopingto read and comment on your blog there.
We missed three of the grandkids’ birthdays in January. Blizzard conditions and ten inches of snow kept us from traveling north the first week; hubby’s job and then his cold kept us home later on.
One of the squirrels dug down to find buried seeds next to the birdbath.
The Song Sparrow was happy about that!
I managed to get to necessary appointments, but it’s been eight weeks since I’ve seen my hair stylist. The longer look is growing on me…
My daughter, Suzanne, joined an online art journal group. We’ve been working on projects ‘together’ via text messages. This is the mini binder cover I decorated to hold my photography lesson cards.
Saturday, I made rosettes from scrapbook paper.
I’m looking forward to bunny-sitting this week. I can’t wait to introduce you to Midnight!
That’s a brief summary of 2018, thus far. I look forward to hearing from you as I’ve missed our regular online visits.
We saw lots of wildlife activity during the recent snow storm. Here’s one of my favorites, the Yellow-rumped Warbler, patiently (as patient as a warbler can be) waiting for the Carolina Wren to leave the suet feeder.
No reservations are required for dinner at our new favorite restaurant (for special occasions). If you’re ever in Virginia Beach, check out Dockside. Blackened chicken with two sides for me, hubby always gets the blackened seafood platter.
