The trumpeter swans adorn the winter landscape of the La Salle Park every single year. However, they are not so numerous this year.
Even so I am retired, I have full time job and not much time for my family duties, photography, and other things I like to do, there is one more of my hobbies – to improve the space where I live. It is not really Christmas activities but right now I have some days off to start new project in my house. The basement in my house is the empty space with no any touch of human hands. It is pretty big and can add to our home beautiful livable room. Although for two of us we have enough rooms to live the abandoned basement bothering me a lot. It is just first step to the huge project which is partially done as a Christmas gift for myself.
