It was just one of those weeks. First of all, the kitties were into everything. There's Stormy trying to tell me that she didn't knock the towel off on the floor...that Peanut did it. Yes, she talks to me and understands what I tell her. Too bad that Peanut hasn't learned what "no" means yet.
Peanut is also responsible for the throw rug in the kitchen being messed up. Not Truman. He's a pretty laid-back kinda guy and he doesn't bother much. Peanut thinks anything that is not nailed down is there for her to play with.
See that poor plant above? Peanut jumped up into the midst of photos and knickknacks to tackle the plant. Which came tumbling down on the carpet below. She loves to mess with my plants.
I'm glad the photo is a bit dark so you won't notice the dust. On top of having so much fun picking up after Peanut, we had our water off for a good part of 2 days and were under a boil order for most of 4 days. That was a good excuse for me not to clean house.
I have begun to think about gardening and planning some new flower beds, so I picked up a gardening book at a flea market that looked interesting. Gladys Taber is a favorite author of mine. I love how she tells about her life at Stillmeadow. She loved nature, the country life, gardening and her pets. She also loved to cook and often told how she made a particular dish.
Being under the weather. with battling BPPV for several days. and under a boil order both gave me a good excuse to just relax in the recliner and read. Except I really didn't feel like reading too much at a time.
I'm still keeping an eye out for the birds, in particular the Red-Headed Woodpecker. Here is another SOOC shot that I couldn't resist taking and showing. Isn't he a pretty boy? Looks like he got his feathers a little ruffled about something. It was a bit windy.
The weather warmed up over the weekend and we had rain begin late Saturday night and into Sunday. Our pond is as full as it can be with much water going out the spillway. As you might expect, a lot of the snow is now gone. I do hope that is the last of it, but there are still patches left and my dad always said that it was hanging around waiting for the next snow. I hope not. We're ready for Spring.
Happy Monday to you!
Until next time...
