It was a nice day in Lindsborg today.
It was nice having morning coffee with my dad, a rare treat as he lives in Lyons; he’s staying with us till power is restored at his place.
It was nice having the kids here, playing video games and IM’ing each other on their laptops as they sat side by side on the couch.
I took a few pictures during the day and early evening and am very pleased with two of them (the nuthatch and the Christmas lights). Some of my other favorites are shown below, and there are a few more on my Flickr site.
We begin with a squirrel, a nuthatch and a cardinal. They were feeding in our backyard, along with a couple dozen other birds.
Next is a tour of our snow-covered backyard, softly decorated with a good 6 inches of snow.
Oh oh! I spied this branch resting atop the power lines that feed our house. The good news is that all power has been restored to Lindsborg, so the city utility crew was able to come out and take care of the problem right away. That was very good considering we have family staying with us due to the lack of power in Lyons!
Next we head over to the river for a shot of the lit for the holidays Smoky Hill bridge as well as the Old Mill.
The sunset was nice today, and we finish with a couple of shots of our front yard, decorated in style for the season by Sheryl.
