Scampering around

This morning before the rain started I was out and about scampering up trees, over tree roots , and just having fun.
Tree roots.
An old fallen tree.
The woodpeckers favorite tree.
It wasn’t long before a cold breeze started blowing .
Raindrops starting coming down.
I raced across the yard then up on the deck.
I looked back to where I had just been.
Let the wind blow.
Let the rain fall
I guess I’ll go in and take a nap.
I’m glad I was able to scamper about this morning.
An inch of snow is predicted tonight.

ACorn explores outside

We have had so much rain lately.
I put on my boots then went outside on the one day the rain held off.
Everywhere I went it was standing water and mud.

I found violets blooming.
I found lots of violets blooming all over the yard.
A little Bee was enjoying the dandelion.
I call these little flowers snowdrops.
I don’t think that’s the real name .
Looking across the yard full of blooming violets many snowdrops were mixed in.
The lambs ears are growing .
That is one tall crane compared to little me.
Lots of flowers here.
I did have to be careful to not get snagged on all the thorns growing on this bush.
It would be awful if my sweater got hooked and I couldn’t get down.
This is the last and best looking plant growing in the yard.
I didn’t get close just in case it was poisonous to me.
I had fun exploring even with the standing water and mud.
Summer with dry weather will surely arrive sometime.

Stay At Home Knitting

At this time everyone is staying home.
My person has many small balls of leftover lace weight yarn.
She has been using them to knit little people.
She purchased the patterns on Ravelry the designer is Esther Braithwaite.
Here she is knitting a rabbit.
I can’t wait to see it when she is finished.
This is the first little person she knit.
Now the little person has a brother .
Oh my!
Another one .
Everytime I turn around another little person is added to the group.
A little nurse is knit complete with her mask.
A bowl full of little people.
But wait there is one more.
The little rabbit is done.
She still has lots of bits and bobs of yarn left.
I think more little people will be made.

ACorns Easter 2020

HAPPY EASTER everyone!
My human had an egg hunt for me today.
There were so many eggs I couldn’t carry them all.
I also received a big chocolate rabbit.
Maybe I’ll nibble on his ears later.
Little peeps came out to see what was going on.
They are so cute.
The peeps wanted to know why I was carrying colored eggs in my basket.
I thought this was a fine day to wheel out the big chicken I received last Easter.

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.
