Another Scavenger Hunt Sunday

9 Jan

The items for the first Scavenger Hunt Sunday of the year are:  new, red, breakfast, simple, and circle.

Breakfast.  I do not eat my cats for breakfast, but I do fix an egg for Snickers every morning.  He hasn’t been feeling well, though, and he thought the flower water made a better breakfast.



He’s been on antibiotics for a few days, and he’s doing better.


I’m not sure how much he’ll improve though.  My secret thought is that the cancer in his mouth is spreading.  It’s been almost four years since he first had problems with it, and he’s been amazingly healthy and happy throughout this time.

I do hope the antibiotics are all he needs to improve for another four years, but I’m not very optimistic.

Simple:  I found a simple solution to the problem of the bowl of dog food and peanuts blowing off the table.  I set it down out of the wind.  The birds seem to be happy, but it’s not very good for pictures.  I guess with our frigid temperatures, feeding the birds is more important than me getting to take pictures.


Red.  Since I’m on the subject of birds, here’s a couple with red on them.



New.  We’re still working on the new soap room.  It’s slow.  I want it done.

Circle.  Progress is still being made though.

I really can’t wait for it to be done.

It’s not too late to join me on Friday’s Hunt.  You can check it out and enter here.

I’m also sharing with Saturday’s Critters and Camera Critters.

    Snickers is adorable, and looks so soft and cuddly. He certainly looks healthy. If you get your room done and start making soap, will we ever see you again? 😉 Nice bird shots.

    Snickers is such a beauty and the cardinal image is stunning!! It looks like you will be having quite a large soap room!! Very nice!!

      It will be amazing when it’s done. I’m rather impatient though. LOL

    Snickers is adorable and I am glad you do not eat ‘cat’ fir breakfast! Had to laugh about that! Your Sao room looks good and I know you will be doing a lot of hard work in there but then you live that. You have made great changes and made great progress in the pst year. You should be proud of yourself especially as you are still teaching. Mt SHS will be posted tomorrow.

      Jeanne, he’s done well for nearly four years. I’m not sure how much longer he can do well. Thanks.

      They really are. They certainly make the white a winter more cheerful.

      He is doing better. Hope it lasts for a while.

    Your first line about not eating your cats for breakfast made me chuckle out loud. I do hope antibiotics are all he needs too. I understand why you are not optimistic however. He is a handsome fella.

    • Teresa January 10, 2016 at 2:21 pm #

      He’s had a very long good streak since his initial diagnosis, so I’m just grateful for every day he does well.

    Delightful post except for Snickers being under the weather.

    • Teresa January 10, 2016 at 4:02 pm #

      Thanks. He is feeling better.
