Happiest Valentine’s Day weekend

Robin's Message of Love

(a very cold day, and the robin 
shouldn't be here, but he
 and his family felt it was a
 vital message -- love one another.)

We have had a wonderful day -- ate our favourite take out 
wraps for lunch, then went to the park we love to feed the ducks,
geese, and swans who were very hungry.  I love the fact that
a swan out of water is almost as tall as I am, and yet both
the male and female know that I'm doing my best to feed them,
so they do bite my glove holding the food, but not hard. 

Then we took a walk along the lake -- extremely cold with a 
fierce wind, but beautiful. Now Steven is making dinner, and
then we're going to watch a movie.

I worked on a painting for one show today.  There is a long
way to go, but I hope I get it finished in time to submit it.

Wishing you a very happy weekend.

Have a loving your life day.

We have robins very busy now and snow is predicted! It won’t last but it has been very cold. I love your robin ❣️❣️❣️❣️

Hi Evelyn,

Thank you. Major excitement in our backyard has been a beautiful
hawk. It's there because my husband has tied our Christmas tree
to the fence, and covers it with bird feed. I haven't seen the
hawk catch a bird, but it does come back occasionally.

Meanwhile the smaller birds are very happy.

Love your work.
