I forgot my camera again when I went for my walk and I wanted to take a picture of some ducks. Some were pecking away in the grass and others we in the water. I believe they are the ones that an Aquabus driver told me were only here in the winter. I will try to get a picture another day and put it here.

I have noticed since I have been doing this I am noticing more. A seagull today that was brown and white and I wondered if it was a young one. I was also noticing the needles on some pine trees and a little sparrow in the bushes. I am definitely seeing more and appreciating more.

Today's LITTLE MOMENT is my neighbour thanking me for the Christmas card I gave her. It is a photograph of False Creek. She said she has it on a shelf right at the front where she can look at it every day. It is such a great feeling to have your creativity appreciated. These are the two pictures I used on my cards.

There is no picture for my LITTLE MOMENT today. My daughter arrived home safely from her Christmas trip back east. There is always that little bit of unease when a member of the family are travelling - especially in the winter - so it is always a relief when they have arrived home safely.

MEMORIES AND LITTLE MOMENTSMy Christmas tree is at the foot of my bed so I lie in bed and look at the decorations and lights last thing at night and first thing in the morning. This morning I was thinking that it is almost time to take the tree down and put away all the magic until next December 1st. My decorations are a combination of old and new. Some very precious old ones are memories from my childhood Christmases, there some made by my Daughter and Granddaughter when my Granddaughter was little, some made by my Mom and some from my marriage when my girls were small. A decorated tree that is a record of the 71 years of my life. The little white bird is new this year along with some red birds and bows. They are a symbol that even though I am in my seventies, each day can bring new experiences and possibilities.
