Feline Friday January 31, 2020

Over last weekend we visited one of 
Russell's brothers.  This kitty was so
cozy and fun to snuggle with!
Have a great Feline Friday!

Great Horned Owl
I've been reading the book
"One Man's Owl" by Bernd Heinrich.
It's a thoughtful book and I highly recommend it.
Here is a quote from his book that really
resonates with how I feel about nature:
" I feel a strong identity with the world of living 
things. I was born into it; we all were. But we
may not feel the ties unless we gain intimacy by
seeing, feeling, smelling, touching, and studying
the natural world. Trying to live in harmony with
the dictates of nature is probably as inspirational
as living in harmony with the Koran or the Bible.
Perhaps it is also a timely undertaking."   
Have a lovely day.

Happy Birthday Grace!
One of my favorite photos!
This photo of Grace, her dad Russell and 
her dog Moo Shu was taken in 2008.
Four years later we sold our home and
  moved down to the Mt Shasta area of
Northern California.
Have a great week! And thanks Sandee
for all that you do for us bloggers!

Feline Friday! January 17, 2020

I took this photo last year on 
February 5th at 10 am.
This morning we woke up to snow!
Too early and too dark to take a photo
so this is a repeat!
Have a lovely day wherever you are!

Happy Tuesday January 14, 2020

Sometimes when making cookies...
I kinda let my childish self take over!
What were just going to be simple peanut butter 
cookies morphed into silly faces when I 
decided to first melt chocolate and dip the tops
into the melted chocolate and then
I saw silly faces that had to be seen by using icing.... 
Happy Happy New Year!  

and shazaam....good tasty yet funny cookies!
Have a lovely week! xoxoxo
