Tennis Anyone?


My mamma is too busy

watchin’ the cardinal and the robin

take a bath in the dew up on our hill

and the blackbird scooping up a cicada in his bill.

If tennis is not your game

i love walking just the same.

After mamma sips her tea

and eats her sourdough bread

maybe she will remember that i haven’t been fed.

Until then i will chew on this thing like gum

and wish my mamma wasn’t such a BUM!




My yard is filled with noise this week.  The Carolina Wren in the Oak tree, the House Wren in the brush and checking out my house I have hung in the Birch tree, the Purple Finch in my Boston fern, the Robin’s nest in the neighbor’s gutter, the Catbirds with their meowing right before bedtime, the Mockingbirds, the Nuthatch with his “yank yank” sounds, the woodpeckers both Downey and Red-headed, and of course the Sparrows, Cardinals, and Bluejays. Throw in the bunny friend I’ve made in the last few days that is gorging himself on my lawn(which is filled with goodies of every kind because I do not spray), and it makes it hard for Puppy and me to peel ourselves away from the activity and blue skies with white fluffy clouds.

Greens for breakfast, lunch and dinner today for one of my sides as the doctor suggested and washing it down with a new kombucha flavor…Celestial Seasonings meyer lemon ginger YUM!!! Retiring with a new yoga dvd and waking up to a fresh page of life to color as I wish tomorrow.

More like photograph but you know what i mean 🙂

“Just ramblin”


Another rainy day here today with breaks of sunshine.  Just enough time to keep up with my backyard friend.  I hope he is one of the two that were born early this spring under my oregano.  He has gotten very comfortable with me over the last few days. Even with the hollering at the dog not to chase him did not scare him off.  It probably scared a few neighbors though….have a pretty passionate holler when necessary.Image

Trying to incorporate more days in my schedule for yoga.  So helpful for me! Touched base with my new doctor and went shopping with Puppy for some healthy food at our local natural food store.


Hoping to have one of my grandson over for the night this week.  Maybe tomorrow.


I’ll leave you with some more shots and talk to ya later.
