April 3, 2020 It's Feline Friday!


 Now that the weather is improving Lucy loves
to go out side and watch the world go by!
Needless to say...so do we!
Cannot get too close to folks,
but at least we're out enjoying the sunshine!



Here's a better view of what Lucy is looking at.  
Have a lovely day and  stay healthy!
Thanks Sandee for all that you do! 
PS If you have time do check out my A to Z blog
Cheers!

April 2, 2020 Thankful Thursday!

During this very serious time I am so very thankful 
that we live in this wonderful neighborhood, with caring
and giving neighbors. Where ever we have lived we have
 always been blessed with lovely neighbors. 
Right now it is truly important that we take care 
of each other in our homes, our neighborhood 
and  yes....when we go outside walking or when 
we carefully do our shopping. 
Remember to smile, wave and say hello. 
We may be distanced from each other but we 
can connect by acknowledging each other's presence
Take care and be well.


A view from our kitchen window.
Thank goodness we can see nature right
out our windows! 



Another two views from our dining room table!


There is a seasonal creek below our home that
is running full from all the rain we get at 
this time of year. It's fun to watch families walk
along it with their children. 
Many thanks to Brian who created Thankful Thursday!
Have a great day and take care!
Before I forget....if you have time please visit 
my 2020 A to Z Challenge blog. 
It's called A Bird a Day! 
I am posting a different bird each day!
Thanks!!!!

Awwww Monday! March 30, 2020


Russell made dinner the other night...
his delicious burritos! 
Spicy and tasty !  


One of our resident squirrels having a mid-day snack!
He's been busy all day digging up snacks!

Over here we have absolutely no complaints...seriously....boredom has not set in nor any petty stupid arguments.
 Russell has been assisting neighbors with 
outdoor landscaping projects,
I've made one baby quilt (now at the long arm quilters)
 and I resurrected all the teeny bits of fabric
left over from a multitude of other baby quilts made 
since I think 2008? Anyhow, I am sewing these bits
together and hopefully making a reasonable semblance of another baby quilt. Not named after Covid-19. 
Maybe called "Little Bits".
We have lots of freezer goodies,even ice cream still... shhhhhhhhhhh do not tell Russell or he'll be demanding
dessert besides the yummy Crunchy Almond butter cookies and Gingersnap cookies I made a few days ago.

Have a good day today and everyday!

It's Feline Friday! Friday March 27, 2020


Now that we are staying home for awhile
Lucy is taking more interest in what Russell
is doing.  Usually she's just looking for handouts!
We are lucky to have her to entertain us when
we aren't inventing chores or projects to
keep us busy while practicing seclusion.
We hope you all are doing well and are happily healthy!
Take care and keep up the good work!
Thanks Sandee!

Feline Friday March 20, 2020


Lucy told me this:
"While life is chaotic and disruptive right
now...just remember to smile, wave and
be nice to each other....it makes everyone
feel better and more relaxed."
And then she purred and flopped down into my lap!  
Have a lovely day every day! Things will improve!
