This park is near to us and a very popular activity any time of the year. There is a hiking trail and if you bring birdseed, stand still and wait you then will be treated to a visit from a Chickadee, Titmouse or a nuthatch. The later 2 are not as common but they do get over their shyness and visit. I was lucky to catch the last one in flight. This is unique to this park but I wonder what other people are able to feed or watch up close where they live. We are spoiled to live so close. I like the feeling of the little feet as they grip onto your hand. My daughter likes the sound the wings make as they fly in to land. Sometimes they fight in order to get on your hand next. Squirrels both Red and Gray were all around our feet while we were feeding them.

There is always something on the needles- and never enough that gets off the needles. The middle photo is a completed neck cowl from some nice yarn I bought in Bath Maine this summer. The piece I am knitting and in the bottom photo is another Neck Cowl. These short term and 1-2 skein projects fit my allotted project time right now. The finished one I have worn and it is perfect for our kinda cold and definitely wet winter. What projects are you working on?

Getting a new toy is always an exciting event both for Edna and for us to watch her explore it and begin to love it. This was no exception. Lots of tail wagging and biting it. All those legs, attenae and face to bite. It is a toy her size!!
