Feline Friday October 22, 2021

This gorgeous cat has been wandering about
in our little neighborhood for months.
The cat is not lost, but I sure wish the
cat could be kept indoors as we have 
oodles of coyotes and also bobcats!
Here's a photo of a local bobcat not far from us
in another neighborhood. Yow!
This photo was taken just a few days ago.

Pretty darn amazing!
Have a wild weekend!

AWWW Monday! October 11, 2021


Yesterday we went to a friends home for an 
October Fest Party!
Very fun event and we had a great time. 
Especially visiting his three darling burros!
The two above were so friendly, but the
sweet little one below was very shy.

Have a great week!
Thanks Sandee!

Thankful Thursday October 7, 2021

Thankful for our helpful squirrels!
Seriously- our little friends grab the acorns
I put by the little sculpture
and sometimes they eat them up and other times
they plant them- I keep hoping an Oak tree
will show up! The acorn is right in front of the sculpture....

They are cute aren't they!

See... the acorn disappeared!
While we were down in Weed CA I gathered 
up a lot of acorns to see if I could get the acorns 
to propagate up here.
Many thanks to Brian for Thankful Thursday!
Have a great day everyone!

We had forgotten how immense the open land

And how amazing home grown veggies look!

These garden tools have a remarkable history!
Have a very Happy Tuesday-
