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!

Our first sighting of spring! 
The Trillium is one of my favorite flowers. 
Please don't ever pick them as that 
can actually kill them.
Have a lovely week!

Lucy the Cat!
Next month she will be 10 years old!
She came into our lives and hearts
at the age of 6 months as a feral stray.
It took us a bit, but we managed to
entice her into our home with tasty food.
After a few weeks she was nicely settled
in and the only time she goes outside is
 with us on a leash. She takes us for walks!
We are so lucky to have her with us.  
Have a lovely day!

Birthday girl Stephanie with her 
new little puppy Dakota!

Stephanie blowing out her birthday candles!!
Not just one cake for her, but TWO!

After dinner and birthday dessert
Logan, Stephanie and Kevin laughed
and had fun with Lucy while first
she ate some fresh catnip and then
they got to play with her tossing toys and
getting her to chase them! 
Such a fun evening! Life is good.

Thankful Thursday! March 5, 2020

Happy Happy 75th Birthday Russell!
I count my blessings everyday...
and if it weren't for my wonderful
husband Russell,  my life would not
be so sweet and loving.  
We're having dinner at La Bottega
of our favorite Italian restaurants!  
Cheers and may you have an equally great day!
Many thanks to Brian for Thankful Thursday!

Feline Friday !!! March 6, 2020

Lucy was sleeping quite nicely tucked in 
and almost invisible! 

But ...ahah!...she caught sight of me!
We just love Lucy soooo much!
She's a great cat!
Thanks Sandee for Feline Friday!

Happy Tuesday March 3, 2020

Yesterday Russell and I drove across the
Columbia River to pick up the Portland light rail.
We went downtown to the Portland Art Museum.  
We primarily wanted to see the retrospective
of  Robert Colescott's paintings. 
While we there we also viewed the exhibit of posters
The Art of Reading. Which is where I saw these
six glassed in periodicals. Two of which above
I enlarged so you could easily read them.

Have a lovely Tuesday!
