ACorn makes some easels

Having lots of time on his hands ACorn set about making some easels.
Four easels have been completed.
Happy with the completed easels he heads off to make artwork to display on them.
Birds are going to be the theme for his work today.
Bird stamps are the starting point.
ACorn hopes to clear off his work area by using
up scraps of past artwork pieces.
The first easel displaying it’s piece of art.
He’s pleased with the result.
So pleased that he decides to work on the three other art pieces.
Finished his easels completed his artwork achieved his goal.
ACorn is a happy little squirrel today.

Going on a Hike

Hitty Meadow received a capelet to match her hat a walking stick and
a gathering basket today.
Meadow thought this would be a fine day for a hike.
She packed her capelet in her basket grabbed her walking stick
then headed off on a hike with ACorn and her pet fox Feather.
The trio stopped for a rest enjoying the view .
As they were resting a hiker pasted by and took a picture of them.
Meadow put her capelet on for a few minutes so she wouldn’t get a chill.
After resting then repacking her basket the trio headed home.
It was a wonderful hike on a beautiful day.

Meadow in the Fairy Garden

New plants had been planted in the fairy garden a few weeks ago.
Here you see the baby’s breath that has grown so tall.
Peperomia plants have grown well also.
ACorn brought Meadow and Feather to the garden.
Meadow feels right at home here with all the thriving plants.
ACorn is now able to stand under most of the foliage in the garden.
Feather is interested in following ACorns lead to discover new places to explore.
Meadow checks the ivy to see all the new growth sprouting out on the vine.
The fairy garden is the place Meadow and Feather will be spending their
time when the weather outdoors isn’t nice.

Hitty Meadow

Hitty Meadow and her fox Feather are new to the Donahey family.
Meadow is a Hitty that loves nature.
Feather goes wherever Meadow goes.
Tiny daffodils are blooming outside the window.
Meadow wanted to see them.
It’s not the nicest day to go outside.
Rain was falling off and on.
Meadow , ACorn and Feather climbed up on the windowsill.
Looking out the window at the daffodils wasn’t as nice as being outside but it was dry.

Maybe another day when its not raining they can all go outside.

More stamps

I have been so lucky at getting letters with many stamps on them.
A little box with lots of stamps.
Stamps on all sides.
This is the time we have been asked to stay indoors.
It’s the best time to ready my stamps for albums.
Here I have them in a sink full of water.
Soaking stamps to remove them from envelopes and cardboard pieces.
Stamps laying on paper towels face down to dry.
It would be awful if I put the sticky side down. There could
still be some glue on them.
Lots of stamps to go before I’m done.
I must have a million trillion stamps.
Back to the sink for the next batch.
Hope you’re having a fun time today.

The little red door

Located outside level with the sidewalk I spotted this little red door today.
As many times as I have walked by this restaurant I had never noticed it.
I wasn’t able to get close enough to see who lived behind the door.
The weather was cold with a misty rain falling.
My human didn’t want to get down on her knees on the wet sidewalk.
Sunny warm days are the best days for being on your knees
on a wet busy public sidewalk snapping pictures.
A promise was made . We will come down again on a sunny day to explore a bit more.
Maybe other storefronts downtown have little doors.
I can hardly wait for warmer weather. I do hope I find more doors.
This was my only super wonderful discovery for today. A door just my size.
I’ll be back again soon.

Fairy Garden 2020

ACorn is readying the fairy garden.
Some of the plants from last year looked a little sad.
Baby tears were put in place of one of the sad plants.
Such a pretty green color.
A hand propagated amaryllis seed is growing well.
This is its third year growth.
Someday we might get a flower.
An Eden Rosso Metallica Peperomia plant adds a bit of color and texture
to the garden.
Each time a piece of the Christmas Cacti breaks off I
stick it in the soil and a new one grows.
I have many of the pieces planted in other pots around the room.
My Ivy growing up the arbor wasn’t doing so well.
I planted this white veined Fittonia beside the Ivy to cheer it up.
I’m hoping the Ivy will grow better with a friend beside it.
All in all I’m pretty happy with the fairy garden this year.
I think the new plants will like it here.

A trip downtown to Gavins for lunch

Heading downtown with my humans.
We are going to Gavin”s for lunch
My human is putting quarters in the meter for parking.
The meter is yellow like my sweater.
Gavin’s menu.
What will my humans choose?
Gavin’s sits on the square.
I’m looking out the window at all the activity.
That is the courthouse I see.
People are going in to vote where the white tent is.
Looking East at the old brick building.
I have so much to see out these windows.
The town has some pretty neat streetlights.
My humans were going to show me more sights.
Stepping outside we changed our minds pretty fast.
The sun was shining but it was only 36 out.
The downtown square gets a cold wind coming from all four directions.
We headed to the car as fast as we could and went home to warmth.
I did have fun looking out Gavin’s windows.

Beaded Fruit

ACorn noticed today the urn of beaded fruit that sits on the hearth.
He tried lifting the lid to get a closer look.
It was much to heavy for him to lift.
He ask his human for help.
She lifted the lid.
ACorn climbed up to check out the fruit.
He was very disappointed to find it wasn’t edible.
He continued looking at the rest of it.
He wondered why someone would have fruit sitting around that you couldn’t eat.
I told him it was just to look pretty.

More hats for the Grans

Granny Rachel is modeling the new hats.
Blue flower hat.
Black velvet hat
St Patrick’s Day green hat.
Five more hats ready to be embellished for Easter.
Granny Rachel isn’t looking .
I borrowed her new flowered hat and tried it on the lamb.
I think it looks best on the lamb.
I won’t hurt Granny Rachel’s feelings by telling her that.
Maybe I can talk my person into making a flowered blanket for lamb.
