It has been a very busy week on the personal side. I played hostess to a luncheon for my Aunt's 90th birthday which was a worthy effort for such a notable birthday. She is quite a character and I was glad everything turned out well and all the ladies enjoyed it. If I am still around at 90.....which I probably won't be, I would hope for the same.
All the cooking and preparation left little time to do much else and what time I did have, did some of those outside jobs that needed doing before the cold weather arrives which regrettably, looks like towards the end of the coming week.
I did go out for a bit this morning just to look around a bit. Lots of mallards are coming in now and I saw a few Grebe and Ruddy Ducks.
The resident Great Blue was doing lots of strutting and fluttering about. It usually flies off as soon as you gt close but not today. The overcast skies today really brought out the blue of the heron.
