Field Trips with ABBA

I remember driving out and about in my county, and state.  I would go to lakes, parks, and just trails across the land. I would see life in an entirely different way than usual.  The eagle, the deer, the birds and coyotes.  It has been years since I have driven, so I certainly long and miss those days.  A friend, a sweet friend, and maybe as I allow her to love me, be my sister in Christ. It was so wonderful to go to a local lake (that was nearly dry a week ago), and see it nearly full, from these intense rains.  For years, I would list all the life, especially the birds I would see and hear in my bird diaries. I have never quite understood, why I love to list, List, LIST things, but have since childhood.  Then i would do lists of countries and their capitals, maybe the flowers of a certain nation and many more lists.      I anticipate more trips and even getting my drivers license again before the year is over. Here is the list from our trip on January 15th, 2016.  Shalom to all who read this…………
