It's a zoo around here!

Yesterday, there was a bobcat that walked across our driveway; the day before, a reddish fox ran from the lake across the driveway and on up into the woods! We've seen foxes before, but the bobcat was a first, and I was glad that Dick was here to see him/her...whatever! It must have had a sticker in its paw, cuz he sure had a wee limp.

We are frequently treated to deer sightings...eight crossed the upper driveway just the other day; two crossed there just now. And we see the occasional turkey in the yard, and woodpeckers in the trees. It is fun seeing nature right outside our window. All these critter sightings are a relief from the view of the barren,leafless trees. Wintering in South Florida is looking mighty appealing right now! And our hearts are healing a bit more each day.

I am finishing up my Christmas cards today...finally...while rosemary chicken is cooking in the crockpot. What are you doing today? Life is good!

Yep, I remember living in the country and seeing the critters now and then. Yep, it's a zoo in the country. They don't know it's your property.

I'm glad you are doing a bit better. I have you and hubby in my prayers.

I've not done too much today, but yesterday I was gone most of the day. I don't care for those kind of days, but did get a lot done.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

No critters here - too much snow and more on the way!! I guess that means it's winter.
Rosemary chicken - yum! What is the receipe?

We love living in south Georgia! Mom's office is at The Swamp and there are lots of critters for her to watch everyday!

Chick-hen? We loves chicken! Mom says she's also love to have your crockpot recipe! Our Nana has 4 crockpots, because you never know when you may need two or what size you'll need!
