Here it is Monday, and I don’t know what to blog about.  That’s the problem with such short days.  I never seem to get things done, so today will be just a couple of random pictures from the last couple of weeks.

The cornfield looks awfully desolate right now.  Hopefully, we’ll have a real winter.  We need the cold and snow to help break down those stiff stalks.

Otherwise it will be harder to plant using no-till methods next spring.  We’ll still get it done, but it would be better all around if we had cold and snow.

I’m linking these to Mellow Yellow Monday.

You might remember I shared that my dear kitty, Snickers, has cancer.  He is still doing well.  He’s way more lovable and cuddly than he used to be, and he sits in the window staring out at the pastures, but he doesn’t go off hunting much anymore, and he’s dropped from 17 to 13 pounds.



I keep giving him canned food to make it easier for him to eat.

Finally, I have a picture to share for Barn Charm.

This was the full moon setting over the fields and the neighbor’s barn last month.

    Snickers is a cutie, glad he is holding his own. Your photos always look like paintings, Teresa. I love the moon shot. I hope you get your snow. I bet Snickers would like a little scoop of ricotta now and then. I know some kitty cats who love it! xo

      I did give him a little treat of whole goat’s milk one day, but he’s just not into eating very much now. :-( I might have to try some ricotta.

    Beautiful shot of the setting moon!
    So sorry about Snickers. This is a wonderful shot of him.
    Just saw on the news this evening that places that should have been having snow haven’t had any. It was 70 here last week – way above normal.

    Snickers looks wonderfully content as he moves through this season of his life. Enjoy!

    You got a wonderful photo of the barn with the full moon. That’s a hard shot to get! Hugs!

      Thanks. It was such a big moon, I really wanted to catch it over the cornfield. Of course the barn and trees and cage make it more interesting.

    The barn setting with moon is certainly a wonderful sight! And I know how hard it is to watch an animal slip from being healthy to loosing the battle with an illness. I hate when they show very little/no interest in food. They seem to be braver, more accepting of when it is their time than I am… Hugs.

      Thanks. Snickers is still hanging in, but that’s a huge weight loss. I’m not sure how much longer I’ll enjoy his company in my life.

    Love that full moon, and a wonderful shot of Snickers. It’s so hard to deal with end of life issues with a beloved pet, but you’ll always have your memories of him.

    I’m so sorry about Snickers, he’s a beauty & love the image of him… How long does he have or do you know? Wish there was something I could do, so sad…
    Very beautiful moon, tree, fence & barn capture… everything fits perfectly in the shot

    Thank you for joining =)

      I’m so glad you host barn charm. It’s wonderful! I don’t know how much longer Snickers will be with me. I just keep offering food whenever I can and snuggling with him. :-)
