Day 2 of the New Year and all is okay

Hey, I have the the day off with pay which is great.

All of the Christmas decoration are packed and put away for another year.

I have been trying to get photos of some of the birds that come to our feeders. I would love to get the woodpeckers. We have two different types plus a flicker. They fly away as soon as I open the door. I did catch a cardinal before he took off.

This was taken from my deck. It is a good 60 to 70 feet to this feeder. I can't believe my little camera zoomed in this much. One of these days I will get the woodpeckers.

Walking down the hallway I noticed a Christmas decoration that I hadn't packed away and I may not. It makes a great night light. I think it is pretty even if I did make it.

Its just a glass block with a hole drilled in it. Then you stuff a string of 20 lights inside. That can be a chore because the hole is just big enought for the single light to fit in. After putting in the lights you find a pretty ribbon and tie a bow, plug it in. Thats it your all done. I have a box of these glass blocks with holes that my husband drilled. One of these days I will fix at least 5 more to give to the kids. If they want them?

Hello Tammy's mom. I'm surprised your daughter is still alive after posting a certain photo of you. She is a bad bad person, sometimes! You can tell her I said that, too.
Choose two photos. It's buy one get one free. My treat.
And your decoration is pretty, as are your birds!

I lub, lub, lub the glowing glass - it looks like a present! Mine is still under the tree. The tree I need to take down.

I love, love this idea! I'm going to do this as soon as I figure out where to get the glass box, lol. It's really beautiful!

Ummm... Monkey Girl wants to know what the cardinal is doing on the squirrel feeder?

Snooty, It's those glass blocks that are used to build walls. You can get them at any lumber yard. Then you just need a bit for drilling into glass. We found ours at a hardware store. You have to drill carefully or the glass will chip. I do have a few chipped glass blocks. (just little chips around the hole)
