Well how could I not post today.  It's National Cat Day and our kitties would never forgive me if I didn't show them off.  So without further ado here are all our furry feline family members.

2.  Spotted on a walk around the neighborhood today.

3.It's raining golden leaves.

4. Some little "ghosts" to frighten you.

5.  Pumpkins - Variety is the spice of life.

Little Things Thursday - Pumpkin Art

Hello & Welcome. - I thought I would join Tamar (Random-osity) for:


Coleen (my granddaughter) is taking Advanced Art in school this year so as one of her projects she decided to do some sidewalk chalk art.

I didn't get shots of her rough outline before she started but you can see the white chalk marks of the pumpkin outline in this photo.

She continued to color and blend with her fingers and water.
Below is a close-up of how she was blending the chalks.

The finished pumpkin with the wet outline of the shadow.  

 The completed Pumpkin after the shadow had dried.

A close-up of the stem showing the detail of her work.

Sadly she wasn't able to turn this in due to the fact that she was supposed to follow a prompt of (Architecture) but she could turn it in later for credit.
We had rain later in the week...


The pumpkin begins to run and fade.
As of yesterday all that remains is a faint outline of the pumpkin, the shadow and her hand prints from when she laid them on the sidewalk after blending.

I am thankful for having a wonderful granddaughter, I'm thankful that God gave her such a talent and she loves art.
I'm thankful for the rain (we needed it) even though I was sad to see her art work go.
I'm thankful for cameras that we can capture these special memories.

Caturday Art - What a pair.

It's a rainy day here so I thought I would spend some time blogging.


I'm joining in on CATURDAY ART

 These two are quite the pair.  Here they are enjoying an afternoon nap on the bed.  - This is Speedy G (in the background) and Gidget.

I used BeFunky to edit and did a Oil Painting technique on them.

Here is the SOOC shot of them.


Have a nice day everyone.

Willy Nilly Friday Five - The story of a shed and a opossum.

 Happy Friday!

So this week I'm joining Tom (The backroadstraveller) for
WILLY NILLY FRIDAY FIVE - but in a different way since this is more of a story then 5 photos of different things.

Last Saturday (3rd) we had quite an eventful morning.  

1.  My niece and her husband came to see if they could remove my mom's old storage shed since we are replacing it with 2 new sheds.

That's my nieces husband on the trailer getting ready to start removing the shed.

2.After a lot of work they were able to get the shed up off the ground.

3. That's when we discovered that the shed had an occupant living under it.

Yep, Mr. Opossum had been quite comfy in his underground home and was not to pleased about us removing it.
4.  See how many little nest like holes he had made to keep himself warm.

 5. Poor fellow got so scared that he turned around and headed back the other direction and spent a good portion of the morning hiding in a small cramped space because he was to afraid to come out. See that little green house at the back of the photo.  He hid behind there between the fence and the neighbors property.

6.  Meanwhile the shed removal continued.

Getting it up onto the pallet and trailer.

 Pushing it onto the pallet.
7.  Heading down the driveway and onto the street towards it new home.

 8. Meanwhile back at the ranch...They managed to bang on the fence and such enough to scare the opossum out of it's hiding place.
But instead of him heading into the opening between the fence and the back neighbors yard he decided to run into my husband's shop.  That's when the fun began.
9. Coleen and Adam went inside the shop and tried to capture the opossum.  Coleen was finally able to net him with a fishing net but he managed to crawl on top of the net so she ended up carrying him all the way around the house and down the driveway on top of the net. We had in the mean time closed the door to my husbands shop and she was able to put him on top of the fence.

 10.  He went up the tree and stayed there for awhile before moving on.

 I asked my niece if she wanted us to bring him up to their place so he could take up residence again in his old home but she wasn't going for that idea. 
So that's our tale of the Opossum and the Shed.  Hope you have enjoyed it.
