so close!

We are so close to Christmas…I can’t believe how fast that came around this year!

I’m not overly excited about Christmas this year for some reason…it could be because my parents aren’t going to be around.  They drove up to be with my family in CT because my aunt is going in to have surgery to donate a kidney!  Everyone up there is in my heart and my prayers.  We’re going to call up there tonight with my iphone to do some face time chat with the fam, I think that will be fun and nice to ‘see’ everyone before the big day.

We are also not giving too many gifts this year and already discussed it with everyone so they don’t buy for us either.  It’s a crappy economy and they know we love them, and we know they love us, so we don’t need a lot of presents...

Ok….I run out to the store this morning. For a split second I had a thought run through my head that I should bring the camera. Then I thought, nah! So I drive down my street. I notice how gorgeous the light is, how blue the sky is……and there’s three caracara and one vulture. All three were ADULTS….hey, I like the juvies but the adults are so much more beautiful.

I’m now mad, and say to myself, “I friggin knew it!”. So I got to the store, I drive back home down my street and they’re all STILL THERE...
