10 Dec

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.

    I’m hoping for a real winter here too!

    The cat photo is awesome! And I also love that full moon photo.

      It would be really nice if Mother Nature could somehow get to more normal weather patterns.

    poor boy, snickers. i hope you get snow just for the moisture alone. 🙂

    • Teresa December 10, 2012 at 5:27 pm #

      Cancer is cruel no matter what species. 😦

    That’s a beautiful photo of contemplative Snickers. I like the shot of the moon too.

    • Teresa December 10, 2012 at 7:51 pm #

      Thanks. He does spend a lot of time just staring into space these days.

    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.

    • Teresa December 10, 2012 at 7:52 pm #

      It’s really been a horribly long stretch of dangerously bizarre weather.

  6. Barb December 10, 2012 at 8:59 pm #

    Snickers is so cute. I’m glad he is doing well.
    The full moon is lovely over the field.

    • Teresa December 10, 2012 at 9:01 pm #

      Thanks. I do love my kitty, and I don’t know what I’ll do without him.

  7. Anne December 10, 2012 at 9:48 pm #

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

    • Teresa December 10, 2012 at 10:06 pm #

      Thank you for that nice, comforting thought.

  8. southwestarkie December 11, 2012 at 3:55 am #

    Prayers of comfort for Snickers- he is a beautiful cat. Lovely shot of him.

    • Teresa December 11, 2012 at 6:28 am #

      Thank you. He really is a wonderful guy.

  9. Alica December 11, 2012 at 5:16 am #

    Dear Snickers…he could send out his very own Christmas card with that picture! I want to scratch those ears and listen to him purr…

    • Teresa December 11, 2012 at 6:29 am #

      He would truly love the attention!

  10. Tanya December 11, 2012 at 6:01 am #

    • Teresa December 11, 2012 at 6:29 am #

      Thank you. We’ve always said he was a magnificent specimen.

    • Teresa December 11, 2012 at 6:29 am #

      Thanks. The moon was huge.

  12. Wandering Thought December 11, 2012 at 8:08 am #

    Beautiful photos, and I pray that Snicker is getting better each day.

    The last photo is awesome.

    • Teresa December 11, 2012 at 9:27 am #

      Well, with cancer, he’s never going to get better, but he seems to be holding his own.

  13. Jori December 11, 2012 at 9:55 am #

    Lovely fence, field and barn. Cute Snickers!

    • Teresa December 11, 2012 at 9:58 am #

      Thanks. I barely snuck the barn in on this one. 😉

  14. Candy C. December 11, 2012 at 12:58 pm #

    {{HUGS}} to Snickers and to you Teresa.
    Love the shot of the moon over the field!

    • Teresa December 11, 2012 at 12:59 pm #

      Thanks. We appreciate your good thoughts.

  15. Healy December 11, 2012 at 2:57 pm #

    Great post, beautiful shots!

    Visiting from MYM- hope you can stop by..

    • Teresa December 11, 2012 at 3:05 pm #

      Thanks. I’m glad you stopped by.

  16. Andrea December 11, 2012 at 3:06 pm #

    What a beautiful capture of a lovely sunset!

    • Teresa December 11, 2012 at 3:08 pm #

      Thanks. The moon was very bright in the sky that morning.

  17. Lavender Dreams December 11, 2012 at 4:25 pm #

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

    • Teresa December 11, 2012 at 5:28 pm #

      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.

  18. Margaret December 11, 2012 at 5:28 pm #

    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.

    • Teresa December 11, 2012 at 5:30 pm #

      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.

  19. Katherines Corner December 11, 2012 at 7:35 pm #

    God bless sweet Snickers….beautiful photos xo

    • Teresa December 11, 2012 at 7:53 pm #

      Thank you. 🙂

  20. Elaine December 12, 2012 at 1:38 am #

    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.

    • Teresa December 12, 2012 at 6:42 am #

      Thanks. He is quite a memorable kitty!

  21. Kathy December 12, 2012 at 8:48 am #

    Your barn photo has such a dreamy quality. Have a great week!

    • Teresa December 12, 2012 at 9:29 am #

      Thanks. I live in a dreamy place. 🙂

  22. Tricia December 12, 2012 at 11:16 am #

    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 =)

    • Teresa December 12, 2012 at 11:29 am #

      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. 🙂

  23. Sally in WA December 15, 2012 at 5:28 pm #

    That is a beautiful picture of Snickers. Hugs and purrs to you and him as you deal with his cancer.
