~ UNEXPECTED HOUSE GUESTS ~

Don't ya just love 'em!  Last time they showed up uninvited we counted 21.  There I was working at the sink, looked up and... well ~ you can image how startled I was.  And no, dinner wasn't them, at least not tonight, hee hee...

Remember Green Acres way back when?  DH and I, he's Eddie Albert, I'm Eva Gabor, sadly... minus the diamonds.  An ordinary day in the country, living amongst the splendor of nature, waiting patiently for the chickens or pheasants or fox or coyote or deer or bunnies or the neighbors' mule or donkeys or cow or goats or sheep or horses to finish crossing the driveway (watch out for the poop!), waking up long long long before dawn compliments of Mr. Cock A Doodle Do!, stuff like that, every day, day after day.  Most days it feels like we're living on Noah's Ark, I'd say it's Heaven (except for the Doodle part) ~ but then someone might pinch me...
Oh, and I started a new sweet WIP, it's over in my toolbar, if you want to check it out!

Sweet Stitchin all, or should I say "please pass the gravy"...

Tootles, Sue

  4. Makes me feel a little differently about that turkey breast I've been nibbling on from the frig today.

  5. My furbabies would love to give them a chase! Is that a new La-D-Da alphabet?

  7. I think those would startle me if I saw them in my yard. We have them around here but seem to stay away from the houses. We do get deer walking through and those startle me for a minute, but they're so wonderful to look at!

  8. We had a lone turkey lurking around the library last month, Sue. At one point he walked right up to the front door and waited as if he were trying to get in--so funny. They really are some of the funniest looking creatures.

    Your new WIP is looking good--enjoy!

  9. ROFLOL at Peggy Lee's comment! I think seeing a big turkey in my yard would freak me out just because of the size, but that's neat!

  10. Great house guests. We get them every year in the late fall. We say they are the smart ones as no one can shoot them here. So they survive Thanksgiving and Christmas.
