In Less Than a Week

***NERD ALERT!*** On November 30, 2022, it appeared that the Sun would be totally without spots for only the second time this year, since the only active region with spots was rapidly fading from view. The next day, however, two new spots appeared and in the following five days the sunspots went from nearly zeroContinue reading “In Less Than a Week”

Boat Parade

Saturday night we were guests on a boat to watch the lighted boat parade on Henderson Lake at Inverness, Florida. We had a great time and didn’t even get wet! I posted a video of the festivities on YouTube at: #boat #parade #christmas


From the far corners these little snow creatures have appeared on top of the sewing machine cabinet, and it seems that they will be staying through Christmas. I suspect that a Fairy and her Elf have been at it again. They are well behaved, and at least they won’t melt!

Beginning to Taste Like Christmas

“Mmmmm” is for molasses cookies with frosting and sprinkles. The Christmas Fairy and her somewhat-dependable Elf were busy today! #christmas #cookies #fairy #elf

Rare Bird

We spotted this limpkin over the Thanksgiving weekend. It is a bird seldom seen, and we were delighted by this rare view. #limpkin #circlebbarpreserve

Good Night Heron

We found this black-crowned night heron during our walk at the Circle B Bar Nature Preserve. We had not seen one this year, so now it is # 117 on our annual bird list. YAY! #blackcrownednightheron #Circlebbarpreserve #birdlist
