Good morning. It is BRRRRR! in here this morning. The temperature is up to 57F degrees outside and will only make it into the low sixties today. Pretty soon we'll be in the longest (and coldest) season of the year. Winter. It seems to last at least six months every year. Not my cup of tea.
Well, we finally got a little rain yesterday. At first it was heavy enough to make a few puddles, then it was light till the afternoon sun came out. Meanwhile, I was able to go out on the porch and take a few photos of the raindrop bubbles in our one big puddle.
Have you ever noticed how drops of water make beautiful bubbles when they go splat! in a puddle? Here's a few photos of my water bubbles.
You really don't have to look very far to find something beautiful or interesting to photograph. The other day, Joe was out feeding the birds and small critters and he spotted a baby squirrel sitting all by itself and looking a bit bewildered. We did not know if it was injured, or just waiting for it's mother. Joe put down a pile of seeds and corn near it along with a bowl of water.
Meanwhile, I grabbed my camera and went out to the porch. I got a lot of photos before this tiny little cutie was scared off by something that I did not see. I just hope it found it's way home. Isn't this just the cutest little fellow?
My friend Beth tells me that she has a kitten and a very young possum who come to her doorstep every day for food and water. She's very lucky. Animals seem to know who they can trust to help them with food and maybe even shelter.
Today I'll dig out Pogo's little shirts and sweaters. As he gets older, his hair is thinning and I imagine he can feel the cold more now. He hasn't had any new sweaters for quite a while, so I guess a shopping trip is in order.
Now it's time for me to wash the breakfast dishes and get ready to go out with Deanne. It's Taser shopping time. I think while we are at the gun shop, we should look into target shooting classes. It's been a while since we've been practicing our shooting skills and we could both use a refresher course.
So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
