truly me….being me

day to day random topics. me just being me.


It was a nice warm afternoon and Petey was feeling kind of sleepy. 


He had a hard time stifling a yawn.  It wasn’t until after I took the picture that I realized his tongue was crooked.

The fence

We are getting ready to put our plants out in our garden.  Since we live out in the country, we need to protect our precious veggies from critters.  So, we bought a nice electric fence.



The crabapple tree in our front yard finally bloomed.


The Great Easter Mouse Hunt

This post really isn’t for the faint of heart.  I will just say up front…..the mouse didn’t make it.  This all happened while I was at work and Glen was home with the “kids”.  He said he heard a squeak, went to investigate and found this…..


Out little chubby kitty had caught herself a mouse.  However, being a cat, she likes to play with her prey and did the typical catch and release so she could chase it some more.  The only bad thing with this is, the mouse always out maneuvers her and manages to get away.  So Glen, being a good team coach, took Lilly out of the game and put Lucy in.


Lucy caught the mouse and refused to let it go, so Glen let her outside with it.  Bye, bye mouse. 


Getting Ready

Getting ready to plant our garden.  Hopefully we will be able to put out our plants out the next week or so.



I have no idea what kind of butterfly this is.  I came across it last week on a hike during one of our warmer days.


Lunar Eclipse

Glen and I stayed up Monday night so that we could watch the lunar eclipse.  It was kind of cloudy and we were afraid we weren’t going to get to see any of it.  Thankfully, the clouds parted and we got several good shots.





This last picture was difficult to get since there was very little light for the camera to capture. 


Clothes Line Construction

Glen is such a sweetie!  He constructed and installed a clothes line for me.  I know for some, this would seem a strange thing to be excited about.  I love being able to hang clothes/sheets out to dry in the fresh air and sunshine.


The construction phase….


Installed and ready to go.  Naturally, after getting it all done the weather took a nose dive and it snowed again.  Come on spring!


I’m not sure what kind of tree this is.  The buds were pretty large, so I was thinking it may be a tulip tree. 



It is finally starting to look like spring.  I went for a hike on a trail yesterday and saw a bunch of forsythia growing wild.  I hadn’t realized it had bloomed yet.
