Happy Saturday Night!
We used to have a mighty Hawk visit our yard in Richmond, VA. Our pictures were not as clear or detailed as these, and I do not know what kind of Hawk. It was cool just being in “his” presence as he surveyed our yard looking for a snack.

For the past five years, I have enjoyed putting bird feeders out and watching the variety of winter birds that visit them from my kitchen window. Before that, my feeder placements of seeds, nuts, and berries was a bit more haphazard. Back then, I simply placed seed trays on or near the back porch (where I keep a heated bird bath filled with fresh water) and hung a few thistle feeders on shepherd hooks nearby. But eventually, I realized I did not spend enough time on the back porch observing the birds in the chill of winter to make the effort worth my while. Also, the bird poop that whitewashed the decking of the back porch soon became quite a nuisance to clean up. Consequently, I had to rethink the whole bird feeding idea.

And it would be a shame if I didn’t share some of them, so I’m going to…

Usually my cards are on Heavyweight Matte Card Stock, but I wanted to see what these would look like on Gloss and the colors are even brighter. I still like Matte for a calmer mood, but these gloss are quite amazing. By the way, if you are looking for the most amazing cards to print your own pictures, etc., I highly recommend the products of Red River Paper in Dallas, Texas. The quality is A+ and service is extremely fast. My Matte Cards are printed on Matte Premium Plus and the new gloss is called Pecos River Gloss. Happy New Year to All!!!
I highly recommend The Brain Pickings Newsletter. It makes me smile, say “A-ha” out loud, laugh and rejoice in being alive. Now that’s a recommendation. It improves me!
