I washed and refilled the kibble feeder in the entry before heading outside for yard clean-up. The poor starving cats are crowding in to eat.

A stand of cat tails have mellowed in the cold weather.

D. and I dragged all the downed limbs to a brush pile near the garden fence. J. intends to cut up the branches to feed into the woodstove he inherited with the old work barn that sits down by the main highway.

A small paper wasps' nest revealed when the leaves dropped from a stubbly shrub.

Two of the female Mallards zoom aggitatedly about the pond. One of the resident muskrats has been on the prowl, upsetting them.

  1. There is always a melee of cats here first thing in the morning. Lucky carefully woke me at 4.45 a.m. to let me know that she had stowed away upstairs, missed supper, and now she was HUNGRY!

  2. Hullo MM,

    Missed your last posts for some reason. Normally they drop into my dashboard automatically but nothing. I'll have to have a look at that. I had thought you were maybe busy at the quilt shop.

    Some lovely photos which somehow give a much warmer impression than it really is I imagine.

    The bison shots are lovely. Its such an archetypal image of America and especially of the kind of Indian country you are in.

    Hope you and yours are well.

    Thanks for all your lovely comments on my blog. I always look forward to your feedback on my stuff.


  3. How I love getting in close to your photos ... the cat tail shot would be worth a frame ...brilliant.

    I dont think my cats would cope with a feeder ...there are one or two that would just sit and eat ...forever ... and a couple who would starve, as they would wait untill it was Meal time is a challenge but we have a routine now which works but it does mean that there has to be some one there ... 12 hours is the maximum we can leave them and we cant ask anyone else to to feed them as there are so many.

    Thank you for your interest in my FH and in the scrapping too. It is only card I used for the frame but the fun for me is finding the right one...texture and colour wise ... then I used a tool that looks like a large nail file to rough up the edges once I had cut it all out.

    It is interesting that you feel my craft appears difficult and I feel I do not have the talent and ability to do yours ... I feel safe with what I know ...maybe its the same for you.

  4. Forgot to say ... I'd love your recipe.
