It's Feline Friday! September 4, 2015 Oh Lucy !!!

Lucy looks so innocent....

But she is far from it....

She is pretending to smell the flower....

But look closely and you will see
something yellow in her mouth....

Success for Lucy!
 Now I'll just move the flower
where she cannot reach it!
Lucy is pretty hilarious!
Have a great Feline Friday and
remember to thank Steve of
BFDude for starting Feline Friday
to prove he really loves cats!

Magpie Tales #283

Peonies, William Merritt Chase, 1897

On our wedding day
You gave me hope
You opened the door
To our wonderful life
And I have never been disappointed
Thanks to Tess Kincaid for Magpie Tales
Have a great day!

It's Awww Monday! August 31, 2015

This time of year apples are
ripening and some do fall on the
ground if not picked....

This time of year I wish I had
some of these apples to
give to our lovely deer..... 

But all there is for deer to eat where we live
are all the acorns falling off the Oak trees.
But our buck doesn't seem to mind...
Have a great week and be sure to
tell Sandee of Comedy Plus
"Thanks for Awww Mondays"!

Saturday Six Words and Sunday Shadow Shots! August 29-30, 2015

Some mornings must have hot chocolate!!
I love Mexican Hot Chocolate....
much better than coffee (for me).
But if you must have coffee.....
you could always make a Mexican Mocha!
Just put some Mexican cocoa mix in
your cup before adding the hot coffee.
It will put a bit of zip in your day! 

And here's a bit of sculpture whimsy
to add another type of spice to your day!
It's called the Diver and was created
by Candace Miller who is a local artist
in Dunsmuir, California.
You can see more of her art at this Link.
Meanwhile for even more entertainment
do go to Six Words and Sunday Shadows!
Have a great weekend!

It's Awww Monday! August 24, 2015

Lots of Jackrabbits this year!

They love to graze on our lawn.
Russell encourages them as it means
less mowing for Russell!
Below is a close up - a bit fuzzy
since I took this far away. 

They really are nice little animals.
Meanwhile, have a great week and do
pop over to Comedy Plus and
thank Sandee for Awww Mondays!

Six Words and Sunday Shadows August 22-23, 2015

Creating a quilt is a process.....

Selection of fabric colors....
Sewing many strips together....

Arranging the squares into a pleasing design....
Finally it's all constructed....
( the outer material is the backing )
Close up below.

And off to the quilter it goes! Yay!
While I was at the quilters I picked up
the other quilt I made 3 weeks ago.
Now I just have to sew on the binding.
I love making these baby quilts!
Have a great weekend and be sure to visit
