Scavenger Hunt Sunday

16 Jan

This week Ashley gave us the following items for Scavenger Hunt Sunday: monochrome, complimentary, draw, mostly white, and treasure.

The blue jays were out here today enjoying the complimentary dog food.  They need it too with this cold weather (high of 12*F (-11.1*C) today; 0*F (-17.78*C) tomorrow).

I do have a big mostly white bird that has decided she wants to clean up under the bird feeders.

She acts like she’s discovered some treasure.  As long as she doesn’t figure out she could reach up and dump the whole thing, she’s fine.  Do you see that udder?  She is definitely bred for the end of next month.

I do not draw.  But my camera has a drawing setting, so here is Snickers taken on that setting.  Pretty sure I’m not a fan.

This was the picture I took just before on a normal setting.  I’m happy to say his antibiotics helped, and he’s doing quite well again.  We’ll cross our fingers and hope it lasts.


Finally, we have monochrome.  I had the hardest time with this one.  I went with Leo in grayscale.


He’s my sweet snuggly boy in this cold weather.

If you are interested in joining me for Friday’s Hunt, you still have time to join in  this week; otherwise, the items for next week at the top of my sidebar.

I’m also sharing with Bird d’Pot, Shadow Shot Sunday, Saturdays’s Critters, Camera Critters, and SOOC Sunday.

Bird Watching

5 Jan

Just some birds from the feed bowl this weekend.  I’m not the only one who enjoys watching the birds.

I have decided I can’t leave the bowl out there.  The birds keep knocking it off the slick table top.  I also have the opossum and Pistol out there cleaning up spilled bird seed.

I do hope you’ll consider joining me for Friday’s Hunt this week.  The items are in the top of my sidebar, and the linky will open at 7pm central time on Friday.

Sharing with Wild Bird Wednesday and Mosaic Monday.

The Farm Cats

2 Dec

I have three cats on the farm, and they are all pretty spoiled.  Leo has allergies, so he is almost exclusively a house cat.

Snickers used to be a good hunter in his prime, but anymore, he likes to hang out on the deck or back yard.  He doesn’t do too much.

It does look like I might need a bigger chair for the two of them.

Bob is still my hunter.  He likes to walk the Back Forty with me.  Although, this time of year he also likes to hang out in the house.

That doesn’t mean he’s not a good snuggler too.  He just might turn and growl at you with no notice though.
