You know you’ve been a neglectful blogger when the hubby of all people, asks why you haven’t posted anything in several weeks! I didn’t even realize that he’d been paying any attention to “my little blog” as he calls it 🙂 So I have a couple photos for you today..
|Our first flowers of the year|
Needless to say, I’ve been spending a lot of time outside this week. After weeks upon weeks of storms, we’re finally seeing some sunshine. This has been our wettest winter since 1997 ~ we’ve been having extreme flooding and our ground is completely saturated. Since we usually live in a state of near panic due to drought conditions and the threat of wells going dry, it really is nice to see an overabundance of water. It would just be nice if it could rain a few days and then be sunny; then rain a day or two and be sunny….. We had ten days straight with rain at some point so we’re a little soggy.

Poor Mr. MoonCat is asking if I won’t reconsider adding a couple of goats to our menagerie for weed control. We may have to get the mower deck for the tractor for the front and back yard as the grass and weeds have been growing several inches a day. The ground is super wet so we can’t get the lawn mower in there yet and the lovely sunshine is just making everything GROW!

The photo below is actually a blossom from a weed. I loved the shading and pattern on the bud.

My friend Susan pointed out that I needed to post a few pictures of Mr. MoonCat and I in our Renaissance Faire garb. I’d been writing about all of the new outfits that we would like to make with our LA Loot and she requested some photos. So here are some from the last few years; I hate having my picture taken, so there aren’t an abundance of me 🙂 Hubby on the other hand is a ham, so I will have even more of him in the near future.
A while back I said I’d post some photos from our Disneyland trip. So I finally pulled them off of my little camera and have a few to share with you. We spent a week (Sun – Fri) down in Southern California/Anaheim with brother Chris and sister-in-law (you remember my dear friend/sister/co-conspirator, the “Mad Scientist – Cindy”?), their son Rowan and Cindy’s mom Sandy.
We had a blast and it was soooo much fun watching Rowan’s face and seeing him experience Disneyland for the first time. It was also Sandy’s first trip so it was an extra special treat all the way around. We all have a timeshare membership and the Anaheim condo is right around the corner from the gates to the park so we spent a lot of time there. It’s great because they have a full kitchen and washer/dryer so you don’t have to buy the $12 burgers at the park all the time. We ate pretty good… Of course, I justify it because we also walked miles and miles..
I am doing a separate post to show you the spoils for our day trip to the seedy side of Los Angeles. You won’t believe what we found…..But you have to wait until tomorrow 🙂
On Friday, Mr. MoonCat and I headed to Las Vegas for the weekend where we met up with his parents. Mr. MoonCat got sick so we didn’t do much while we there but that’s OK, we were together! On to the pictures………….
You know how scientists claim that our avian species are all descended from the dinosaurs? I think I have proof that a few of my chickens can claim that ancestry…

Sorry I’ve been off the grid for a bit. I’ve been reading and reviewing up a storm over at One Book Shy as well as doing a lot of varied stuff around here. Some of that includes watching the hubby’s baby chooks grow up FAST! (Notice they are now HIS – it’s a love affair.) The girls are doubling and tripling in size every week it seems. Except for Midge, I think she is either a Banty/Bantam or just a runt. Either way she is a tiny terror. She beats up and bullies the bigger girls. They all seem to tolerate the little tyrant. She also has a thing for pecking at my toenails….

Do I sound jealous?
Mr. MoonCat has been toiling tirelessly (do I get extra points for that?) getting our veggie garden up and running. He spent much time plotting and planning:
