  4. Well look at that.

    :-) I want to sit next to that plant, think about nothing at all...


    p.s. String cheese? Honestly, I think it's mozzarella. But you can pull at it, make it come apart in long strands. :-)

  5. Hi, Yam! Pearl beat me to the explanation of string cheese. I left a note in the comments about it at her blog :)

    Nice place you have here! What beauty!

    Puddles - actually there are squirrels there already - but of course there are dogs also. Keep an eye out as I will be posting a piccie of one such canine sometime soon.

    Merle - not a stone out of place; i KNOW you would love it! Keep watching, more on the way.

    Taffy - It is!

    Pearl - this is exactly the place to empty oneself - in the metaphorical sense. There are small cubicle places for other emptyings...

    Jenny-O - Oh I do wish it was 'mine', but have kept a piece of it with these photos!

  7. It is beautiful, especially since snow is falling here!

  8. Grumpy-wumpy cats, too. We've run out of dry cat food! And the vet is closed today, Sunday. Lots of canned food, but it is not the same!
