Discovery

Took a walk around our property a few days ago and discovered these wheels. Need to think of something clever to do with them.  It would be easier if I had any artistic or gardening ability at all.   Will have to take a look around on pinterest 🙂

Hunting for Morels

We didn’t find a lot of them, but we found enough to thoroughly enjoy a good mess of fried morels.

Severe Storms

Yesterday was a day full of severe thunderstorms.  The weathermen had a heyday.  Glen took some pictures of the hail we got while I was at work.  It was about quarter size hail.

Image

Crooked

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

Image

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.

Blossoms

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…..

Image

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.

Image

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.

Image

Butterfly

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.

Image

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.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
