Christmas Holiday

On Sunday afternoon Jan and I took a walk through the Springfield Nature Center.  She is much the better walker than I and with grace bore my lack of speed.

Leaves are now gone and the nests are visible.

We did a three mile walk and my calves knew it the next couple of days!

Sam and family and Sarah were with us Christmas Eve and that evening we put out the luminaries.

This morning is Christmas Day, and the miracle was over.  The luminaries had turned back into milk jugs.

Back into the attic, to await their miracle next year.

About rlhoover

A perspective on life and cycling in the Ozarks. I started serious cycling in 2008, after seeing my wife be on the bike for a few years. We have biked many places and hope to continue. I am no where near being a real good cyclist, but I have fun trying to improve. Who am I kidding? Me? Improve??

    I like the luminaries. What is inside them providing the lumens?

      Small votive candles that I make myself. As I was collecting them up this morning to remove the sand and pack the jugs away, I found one candle still going! Hope you are doing well these days. Our bird feeders are popular nowadays.

    Have any of those jugs ever caught on fire?
