Jammie day

I really like New Year's Eve day.
There is absolutely nothing that
needs to be done.
I have 3 days off,
so fully intended to do 
nothing today..
which I did!

This morning for some reason,
the birds were in the bushes
out back of Harvey
 (Harvey the RV..cute, huh?).
I took my camera out, 
and perched myself on the recliners
and watched out the window.

I got a picture of a

According to my new book
Stokes Field Guide to the Birds 
of North America..
this one is a Hairy Woodpecker.

There were some cardinals too, 
but they are hard to get..
they don't sit still!

I did get a Jay..

He was pretty too!

The rest of the day was
spent reading..
both magazines, and
things on my Kindle.

Tonight will be spent
having a few munchies,
and hopefully watching the
ball drop at midnight.

We'll see ;-)


  1. I love birding; isn't it the best? Especially from inside the RV! Great capture of your little woodpecker; she's darling! We get Hairy and Downy Woodpeckers and they are practically identical in shape and coloring -- the Hairy Woodpecker is significantly larger than the Downy. Enjoy your quiet evening and Happy New Year to you all! :)

  2. Happy New Year!!

    I believe this will be a great year for you and us:o))

  3. Nice bird photos.
    Happy New Year!!

  4. Hope the New Year is an awesome one and will be one step closer to traveling full time!

  5. Sounds like a great New Year's plan to me.
    Happy new year to you both! 2012 is gonna be a terrific year for you. It's your go full time year. I'll bet Harvey can hardly wait!

  6. Happy New Year to you both. I really enjoyed meeting you at your wedding.
