Look close


Look close and then look closer.  You can make out the eye and then an ear.  And when you get it all and get the complete picture in your mind then you realize you have a little ball of fur which will be another mouth to feed this coming winter,  There’s always room for one more around the table and there’s no exception even if you are a ball of fur.  I’ll make sure the feed dish is found back and fill the feed bucket come October.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: https://mnghostt.wordpress.com.

      1. they come at night sweetie. I may get a pic if there’s snow on the ground and there’s a full moon out. but it’s fun seeing the highway of a trail that they will make in the snow. I have a soft heart for animals when it’s so cold out.

      2. I have a hard time reconciling in my head that it’s OK to let some of the wildlife around my place would be cold and hungry if I could prevent it. buying birdseed and bunny feed isn’t that much and it gives me something to look at in the morning.

      3. I started doing it because I had young trees and rabbits will nibble on their tree bark when they’re starving during the dead of winter. so I put out bunny feed in a dog food dish so they would eat that instead of my trees. I also put out wilted lettuce or veggies that went bad and the bunnies would clean it all up for me. it’s just been a habit since then. it gets so bitter cold outside at night and that little bit of feed helps to keep them fed and warm.

        I also keep my bird feeders full so may ever faithful chickadees and cardinals stick around. They like that and the heated bird bath that I have out. it keeps the water heated so it won’t freeze and they have a source of water. it attracts a fair number of birds during the winter.


      4. yeh, I’m pretty sure I have pics of the birds during the winter months in past posts. the bunnies are hard to get at night. it’s too dark for a camera most nights.


    1. I have an Irish household. there’s always room for another chair around the table and we can always throw another potato on the boil.
