Did I tell you about the recent glorious Saturday afternoon when THREE rosy breasted grosbeaks visited my feeders all afternoon? I had never seen one and had to run to the Peterson guide to identify! They are such spectacular looking birds – and they are very peaceful and social. I wish that I had had my camera. Believe me when I tell you – they are memorable – flashy in their red, black and white attire and recognizable for the cardinal-like beak which is white. Large birds…. almost the size of a dove.
My sister is settling into her new home in Savannah. I feel a deep sense of loss, one which dregs up my father’s passing, combined with other losses that I have not yet dealt with. I dream about my second husband nightly! We parted as friends with no residual anger, but regret, at least, on my part.
This seems like the season of change for me. The college for which I work is sweetening pay-out deals and encouraging people like myself to retire. I would love to say YES! But I am years away from social security and medicare, and the thought of being uninsured is frightening. Much to think about. Thank goodness for the fiber!
