Election day

It dawned beautifully.

After working at home most of the morning, I headed into town with my to-do list. First and most important was to drop my ballot in the official dropbox:

Then I walked next door to deliver our property tax payment, taking a moment to appreciate this beautiful tree against the courthouse and blue sky:


At home this wee Japanese maple seems to have taken its inspiration from both the mums and the geraniums:

I'm still following the photo prompts for Wovember but haven't branched out beyond my flock and my current spinning project (now being plyed):


Pushing for pets
Mobbed!






I was gone much of the weekend, and I think I was missed. When I got home Sunday evening, Jackson claimed my lap and Chuckie was waiting when I went out to do chores:


Chuckie is a high-octane combination of playful, passionate, and predatory. Sometimes his intensity is a bit intimidating!







My folks arrive tomorrow morning for a visit, so posting may fall by the wayside for awhile. I'll catch up with you all later!

That's it for now from . . .

That Chuckie sounds like the perfect barn cat.

You are such a good animal mom! Sometimes it's hard because of everyday tasks that still have to be done, but try to relax and enjoy your time with your folks.

Awe I love your sheep photos - up close and personal!
Their little coats are beautiful!
I used to make calf covers and dairy farmer she’d aprons - it was a good sideline for extra pocket money.
I would love a sheepdog but not fair when we live in the city - he is adorable!
You have the best life Michelle - wanna swap with me ?! 😂 🤣

That Chuckie really is a debonair looking cat!
