    I had at least ten crows following me at one point today. There are a few of them that mostly stay on the other side of the highway from me and follow me when I'm in town that fly past me from behind really close to my head, not sure if it is an effort to be noticed, intended to impress me, or part of a tactic to distract or unnerve something in order to steal a bite of it's food. It's pretty cool when they do it. Today one ended up grazing my head, I think unintentionally. There is one (or maybe more) that seems to have figured out that I'm trying to keep the crows from the other side of the highway away from the ones on this side of the highway, and that I'm not as likely to feed a big crowd of them as I am one or two. So it stays quiet and soars in close to the ground to land in front of me and wait for me. Several of them have figured out where my door is now, but maybe not where my balcony is yet.
    There is a tiny brown bird with a black head and a yellow beak that likes sunflower seeds, so I've been setting some of those on my railing for it.
    All of that made me pretty happy today.

    Sorry to be a bore, having my last video autism assessment and being told I likely have Asperger's.

    Catching up on The Owl House...
    I don't know what's cuter, Amity pretending she doesn't have a massive crush on Luz, or Luz's total obliviousness to Amity's feelings XD

    I really do like Amity's character development in this show.

    Black coffee and a toasted English muffin in the morning.

    The fact that it is Friday and therefore the end of my work week.

    My lovely friends who I keep in contact with using my phone every day.

    The fact that my coffee maker can be set on a timer so that coffee is fresh and ready just a few minutes after my morning alarm goes off. Now, that is motivation to get out of bed right there.

    That I managed to get some things done early, including a free flu shot this morning. As my husband is immune compromised I'm included in the 'necessary' innoculations right away.

    My computer is working, the tech who built it found nothing wrong with my old hard drive, it simply would not start, some microscopic flaw in a connection may have caused the difficulties. Motherboard is fine. I've replaced the hard drive, and all is well.

    Not just happy,
    but very happy.

    After finally getting an interview for some part time work and keeping my head during the interview,

    I discover I got the job :)
    Not only that,
    my placement is in the building that houses many and varied classic cars.

    My inner geek is positively bouncing with glee :D

    The oven mitts and pot holder I ordered from Amazon arrived today. My mother said she wanted new oven mitts for Christmas, but we couldn't find anything good at Walmart. So I ordered them online, and they look great. My mom doesn't know I ordered them, so I'm going to surprise her.:wink:

    Maybe hang the oven mitts on the fireplace (if you have one) and fill them with candies, apples, oranges, walnuts or whatever, for her to find on Christmas morning. Who says it has to be stockings hung by the fire?

    Not today, but yesterday I did some Christmas shopping. Not only did I get most of my people done, but I also got a few things for myself: a cute dress, a new manga, and a figurine of Matt from Digimon.

    Hearing the news this morning that my 80 year old Father's triple bypass surgery and heart valve replacement went very well and was finished much quicker than expected.

    His heart doc says other than the clogged arteries, he has the heart health of a teenager and expects a great recovery.
