Season’s Greetings

I retired my camera for a little while, not having much of interest to photograph these days.  The weather has been the usual December gray, but warmer and with rain instead of snow.

My father is coming for a visit.  He’ll be arriving here on Thursday evening.  Since he doesn’t normally spend Christmas with us out here in the Bogs, perhaps it’ll make the holidays a little bit easier for him.  We’ll be getting together with my branch of the family (oldest son, his wife, granddaughters, M the Younger and his wife) so things should be pretty lively.

I’ll probably be around here and there over the next few weeks, but don’t expect to be blogging on a regular basis.  It feels good to take a little break from all things blog-related.  It has also given me the opportunity to catch up on some reading (magazines, books, articles on the internet, etc.) and, sometimes, just do nothing except relax, play, and enjoy life.

I saw the above animation on television yesterday (on CBS Sunday Morning) and thought I’d share it with you.

Whatever holiday you’re celebrating this season, I wish you a joyful one.
