The coons come calling – how was your evening?

4 Nov

How was your evening? Did you accomplish what you wanted to from your day yesterday? or was it like mine, where you felt as if you spun your wheels in a big ole mound of sand-throwing sand all over and not doing much of anything else!

This is Sarah’s mom holding Norah Kathryn after her first bath – she has a mohawk *laughing* – I can’t wait to hold her. ….
Last night I snapped some photos from my porch. It was an almost full moon – the coons came to eat from the squirrels feeder and our dogs were going nuts – but as you can see, the raccoons couldn’t care less! haw! First one, then the other, came to eat-ignoring even big Jake’s scrabbling on the porch railing.

I just liked the way this one came out….moon and chimes were the only things that showed up when I snapped a pic of our cove.
I have so much to do – so, I’m going to get busy this morning — after I have one more cup of Deep Creek Blend. Need to get busy on Rose & Thorn (submissions nuggets!) and need to complete my edits on Secret Graces. If I want to spend good grandbaby time in Oregon next month, I best get my arse in gear! lawd!

So, tell me about your evening – what did you see when you looked out of your window, or stood on your porch, or looked out of your front door?

By the way – Small Footprints is putting up links to Winter Shopping Extravaganza on her Reduce Footprints blog – go by and check it out. She is mostly focusing on handmade items – go see! I’ll be putting up the links to our blogging community shopping in the next few days.

    I once wrote a poem about a brand new grandbaby smelling just right and a faraway gramma's empty useless arms. I just know your arms are trying to reach all the way across the country to hold that beautiful little girl.hugs-Patience

    Oh, I bet your Black Lab was going nuts over those coons! Brave little creatures and cute, too. And Norah Kathryn is so adorable!I saw the waning full moon out over the Bayou Vermilion. It was a beautiful sight!

    Thanks for the pics, I haven't had any coons around for ages. The moon was huge and bright last night. First bath *awwwww*!! So many exciting firsts to come. My grandkids live too far away to!! Thank goodness for digital cameras!!!!!

    Definitely nothing near as wonderful as you saw. I love seeing nature so up close and personal. Love the dogs too. Mine would be royally ticked at being ignored like that!

    Oh, my Maggie would've loved them. I snapped her barking at them in our yard a while ago, but they never came that close.

    Ditch the coons we want more baby Norah pictures =) Aww, too cute!!

    Raccoons worry me. They can be really nasty. Babies with Mohawks, on the other hand, are just charming. Keep the photos coming, Kat!

    Love that mowhawk! What a little cutie pie!

    Lots and lots of squirrels! I can't believe those coons let you take pictures like that. Wow! I bet you can't wait to get your hands on the new baby!
