Time to say good bye to another month and to 2014. Wow, can't believe tomorrow is the beginning of a new year. Where did the time go? As years go it had it's ups and downs - but I guess that's probably normal. Met some great new friends and spent time with some great old friends. We lost a couple of good people this year as well, taken too soon, but death does that and there is no point in dwelling on it. I remember them fondly, not every day but often enough. I think 2014 was when the birding addiction really took hold - it's a fun activity - sometimes drives you a little crazy but Larry and I both enjoy it. The girls and I did our annual weekend in the "bitch mobile" at Harmony Bazaar in Lockeport, last July. A good weekend of music and laughter. I hope we are able to go for many years to come. We had Hurricane Arthur in July - that wasn't much fun - no power for 5 1/2 days, although with it came a few unusual birds. Overall it was a busy year.
Any thoughts of New Year's resolutions? I never much bother with those as a rule - they last the first week then we forget. I am going to try to keep a better record of what birds I see, etc. Maybe use e-bird more often than I have in the past. I've got to keep myself on track with exercise class and walking in between. I should try to curb my food intake....well we'll see. Maybe after I've eaten all the boxes of chocolates. Oh well, we can try.
Even the lake had a few patches of ice.
Enjoy your day!
