Quiet

January Birds

At the beginning of a new year, I don't make resolutions but I do reflect on the past year and choose a word to guide the upcoming year. This year I have chosen "quiet" as my word. Last year I wore too many hats. They were all ones that I wanted to wear, but it got to the point that I didn't think I was able to devote quality time to all of them. And, I was missing out on the things that refill my battery. So, this year I have had to pull back and leave a little more time for the quiet.

One of those things I've missed is having morning coffee watching the bird feeders outside the kitchen window. I received two new feeders for Christmas so the feeder tree is constantly busy. Yesterday, I pulled out the "Africa" lens and tripod and took pictures of my customers. Poppy was there to help and photo bombed a few of my pictures. The goldfinches are just brilliant right now as they winter here in the hill country.

  1. Lisa I'm glad you are putting the quiet in your life. I too love that morning time bird watching. Your photos are lovely and your finches are much brighter in color than our are. Poppy is adorable! Your Africa lens must be quite the thing! Cheers to you! (she said quietly) xo Kim
