Getting Cozy

Our new kitty, Sadie, loves our Lucy girl.


A Gathering


Greedy Guts


This morning when I got up I discovered that Lucy had helped herself to a bag of dog treats and a Costco sized bag of Craisins that had been sitting on the counter.  Thankfully she only ate a small portion of the craisins, but she ate enough to concern me about digestive issues.  That sweet face doesn’t look like it would do something bad does it?

Red sky at night….

We had really crappy weather yesterday.  It was cloudy and drizzled rain all day.  Made for a fantastic sunset though.



Introducing Sadie

Not only are we fostering a dog, but we took in a stray cat. We named her Sadie and she is quite the snuggle bug.  I think she really feels like she struck the lottery coming to live with us.  She was very unsure of the camera and thought about slapping at it with her paw.  Then she settled down and let me take a pretty picture of her.



We are now foster parents….sort of

We made the decision to help The Animal Rescue Alliance, (, by fostering dogs.  Yesterday I went and picked up a small Rottweiler mix named James.  He is about 2 years old and full of what seems to be endless energy.  Hopefully he will find his forever home for the holidays.  He is a sweet boy and deserves it.


He is recharging his batteries in this picture 🙂

Woody Woodpecker

Glen got a great picture of a pileated woodpecker while he was out sitting in his deerstand.  They are a fantastic looking bird.  Interesting tidbit, the cartoon character Woody Woodpecker was modeled after the pileated woodpecker.



You got red on you

This post’s title suggests that it may have something to do with the movie Shaun of the Dead…..but it doesn’t.  Just a pretty cardinal sitting in an evergreen tree.




Very Cold Sunset

Saturday was opening day of deer season.  While Glen was out sitting in his deer stand, he took a few pictures of the sunset.

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
