Little brown wren

Little brown wren

This little fella flew into our mudroom on Christmas morning. I choose to think it is a good sign. He moved remarkably fast but I managed to get a photo of him clinging to the wall.
You know, it's funny. With Christmas over, I was feeling a tad bit bereft of happiness. (I actually speak this way in real life, so don't get all jumpy).
So here I was feeling this way and thought I'd just go on up to bed. Then I remembered I had yet to post for today and began to look through my holiday photos which made me smile, as did this little bird. AND . . . The Bishop's Wife just started. I think I will stay up for awhile. Not so bereft anymore.

Little Brown Wren looking for a warm place to spend Christmas?

Love the Bishop's Wife! Cary Grant can snap me out of a funk, any time!

What a sweet bird! Be not bereft my good maiden! February is just around the corner. Or just a quick car trip this week....

Photography does the same thing for me. Glad the gloom floated away.

P.S. I was feeling the same way Christmas night after all the festivities were finished.

All I felt was indigestion ... I wish I had know there was a Cary Grant fix on the TV ..

Your little wren looks very happy to have found a place to enjoy the day.
I am "bereft" until the day after Christmas then I am elated.
Have a great 2010.
