Feline Friday! February 26, 2021


Awww poor Melancholy Kitty.....
let's take off that helmet and you will be happier!


Ohhhh that's lots better! 
Have a Happy Day!
Thanks Sandee for Feline Friday!

Each Thursday Ellen of 15andmeowing and Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs, provide Friendly Fill-in questions. Ellen came up with the first two questions and Lorianne came up with the last two questions. Thanks Ellen and Lorianne!

Here are my fill-in answers:
1. You don’t have to convince me to be nice to others- it doesn't cost anything and it makes me happy!
2. All this negativity in our country is causing me stress.
3. Speaking from experience, we are all responsible for ourselves- no one else can make you happy etc- it does have to come from inside. As my mother taught me smiling is a lot easier than frowning! Uses less muscles and feels better!
4. Over time, my opinion of politicians has changed. Today they all pretty much are just interested in power and money in their pockets!

Happy Tuesday! February 23, 2021

Spring is just around the corner!


 

Spring will finally be here on March 20th.
And daylight savings time will begin March 14th.
Hopefully not only we are at the tail end of
winter, but also of these hard Covid-19 times.
Have a happy day today and every day!
Thanks Sandee!

Awwww Monday! February 22, 2021



It's that time again! Both of us have large
families and therefore little babies show up!
The quilt above is for a little boy and the
silly little stuffed lion is for the older brother
who just turned two in December.  
I figured the older brother would appreciate
a small gift too! 



This quilt is for a little girl born 
just a few days ago! She has an older
sister not quite 2 years old and I found
a cute little book for her to enjoy!
I am sure that they will probably both
enjoy having the book read to them at bedtime! 
Have a lovely Awww Monday!
Thanks Sandee for Awww Monday!

Feline Friday February 19, 2021


I cannot remember if I have posted these
photos of Russell and Lucy before- 
but if I did....here they are again!
Lucy is such a sweetheart!
And here's the earliest photo of Lucy..
she was only 8 months old!


 
Have a lovely day with your feline buddies!
Hugs and thanks to Sandee!!!

Thankful Thursday February 18, 2021


Many thanks to Brian for Thankful Thursday!
And many thanks to Tanja Brandt for
her magnificent photos of two good friends.
We have a lot to learn from them.
Have a wonderful day!
 

For years, photographer Tanja Brandt has made it her mission to capture magnificent  photos of animals and wildlife. 
Recently, the German artist found a new challenge when she photographed the unique bond between two unlikely friends: Ingo, a Belgian shepherd, and Poldi (Napoleon), 
a one-year-old owlet.
 The owlet and canine have a special 
protector-protected relationship.
Their affection toward each other couldn't be any more evident.
 Ingo lovingly guards Poldi, who apparently doesn't know how to live free. 
The owlet hatched two days after his six brothers and sisters, therefore, has always been very vulnerable due to his small size. 
They respect each other and they can read each other, says the photographer.

Wordless Wednesday February 17, 2021


 The last rose of winter....
this single little rose just today fell off
the little rose bush it had been attached
to for months...seriously!
But the extreme weather finally convinced
the rose that it needed to be on the snow
and not on the stem!
After I took that photo I had fun stamping my
footsteps on our neighbors driveway. 


They are in Costa Rica and therefore I can have
fun on their snow! It will melt long before 
they are home! 
PS I did shovel off their sidewalk!
Have a lovely Wednesday!
