A Tale of Susan and Mac

He jumps at each one as it buzzes, which is probably almost painful for him when five or six are buzzing at the same time.  He wears me out as I attempt to walk him so he can relieve himself outside the house.  It is utterly frustrating.  Why can’t he just focus on the business […]


It’s just beautiful.  I’m guessing we have 3-4 inches of the white stuff.  It’s so clean, so soft, so pretty. I’ve put some black beans on the stove to cook for some soup that will taste so yummy when lunch time rolls around. I’ve noticed birds at the feeders that are never here.  I guess […]

Little Jupiter and the Great Big Moon

I see the moon. The moon sees me. Godbless the moon, and God bless me! The moon and jupiter are like people: Some people shine brightly, larger than life.

Watching Birds

Always, I have loved birds. I think they are amazingly beautiful creatures, creations. There is no accident in the way they were created.   The woodpecker in the first picture is different from the one in  the other photos.  This one has no red on his head, while the other does.  I’m sure there is an […]

Mouse One

I never would have thought a mouse would make me happy, but after two weeks of this craziness, I am beginning to have hope all because of a mouse. Finally, he wasn’t able to eat off of the trap and run–he is stuck. Thank you Sticky Pads.
