Good evening everyone-I had lunch with a friend that I hadn't seen for Christmas so today was our belated Christmas lunch. She knows I am a avid bird lover and I even turned her on to feeding the birds in her new home. She is enjoying it maybe as much as I am. The main staple of the diet I feed the birds is sunflower seeds, I do feed them other food but the main staple is sunflower seeds as it is a birdseed that is widely enjoyed by many species.
We normally exchange our gifts in the restaurant but neither of us did that today. Well after I got the one gift I can see why we didn't. It was a 40# bag of sunflower seeds. Needless to say I will be scooping the food out of the bag from the car until it gets down enough that I can handle it. I generally pick up 20# of sunflower seeds from Walmart and that is just about right to handle. While I can probably pick it up I would have to carry it aways and then lift it into the trashcan I have it stored in so it will stay in the back seat of the car for the time being.
Now I also had an odd shaped pkg which she told me I would have fun with. Well when I got home I opened it and I don't know if I will have fun with it or if the birds will but it is a perfect gift for a bird lover and even though I have several feeders I don't have one like this. I am most happy with my two Christmas gifts and the birds will love it too.
I always thought it would be nice to live in a log cabin so for now this is the closest I will get. So on this Thursday and all year long I will be thankful for this wonderful Christmas gift that will get much use from my many featured friends
