I walk every morning in a local park and the past two weeks the skies have been filled with geese migrating south.
They noisily honk as they fly overhead, and we walkers have to be careful not to be splattered with their droppings.
On one foggy morning this week they seemed to linger longer...
Perhaps like the airlines, they were grounded by the weather?
The usual park seagulls seemed to be on alert, guarding the geese as they ate.
One early morning a frost covered the grass and the geeese huddled together for warmth. They best be on their way to warmer climates, as winter will soon be here!
This is the extent of my Christmas decorations this year -- everything else is packed away for our move. I'm not baking my usual trays of Christmas cookies either -- that will have to wait until next year, but I did find this video of the way the remarkable Gingerbread White House is made -- it is fun to watch!
It is beautiful, isn't it? I would love their job!
I'm sure you have been busy decorating and baking and enjoying all the special moments of the holidays. I have been enjoying seeing it on your blogs! Next week I hope to take some time off from packing to see the Rockefeller Christmas tree and some of the window decorations in Manhattan, so I'll bring you more about that then.
