 Isn't this a great shot of a young moose!  He was walking along the highway the other morning as I was taking my niece to school.  I dropped her off and on my return trip home I decided this time I would be ready to take a picture.  There he was again.  And there was no one on the highway either direction as far as I could see so I stopped and took several pix.  By then two cars were coming down behind me so I drove off.  As I did I could see both of them stopping to get a good look.  This guy is possibly a part of a family of moose that live around that area.  It is within a mile or so of our landfill, don't know if that has anything to do with it but there's a huge male that makes his way across the highway every so often.  Then there's a female I've seen with a much smaller calf walking along the road. 

 My daughter has a new addition to her aviary of parakeets.  This little yellow boy is so sweet and appears to be smaller, possibly a little  younger than the original two but about the same size and the little white with blue female.  They had more fun yesterday chasing each other around, everyone wants to sit with the new little guy.  His nose is already bright blue indicating he's  a male so we are really hoping we were right about the little one in the back on the right picture being a female.

The blue one and the white one are a mating pair and were the original ones she got  We're hoping these two little ones will also mate.

This will be short today.  I've been working on my tax stuff to take to the accountant and still have quite a bit to get organized for her.  I always hate this time of year, not because its so hard but it takes so much time!  Good luck with yours.  :-)

One night last week we were trying to figure out what to eat for dinner.  That's always hard for me.  I think I need someone to come in every night and cook for me.

We decided to have one of my daughter's favorite dishes ... 'Musgo'.  That means (according to her) to use everything in refrigerator that must go.  So we ate up the rest of the salad makings, fried up the rest of the kale (yummy!)  and made some angel hair pasta with the remaining myzithra cheese grated over the top.  Wow.  Delicious. 

Here are some cute pix, the little bird is daughter's new baby parakeet.  She has named it VanGogh.  Because it is so colorful, I guess.  She doesn't know if its a boy or girl, we will have to wait until its nare or nose, located just at the top of its beak, turns blue or brown.  All babies under about six months old have a neutral or purple nose.  Then boys are blue and girls are tan or brown.  Easy.

And here is our little Angel.  She is the little kitty I found in October 2009.  She was in our pasture sitting in the center of a circle of alpacas with our Great Pyr, Dolly, carefully watching over her.  Tiny, thin and scared to death.  She looked like a fuzzy little tennis ball.

I brought her back to the house in my jacket and gave her to my daughter, who had just lost one of her favorite kitties.  She was convinced the new kitten was sent by God and thus named her.  Angel is Much fatter these days.  :-)

I haven't been doing any fiber-y stuff these days.  Just can't seem to get going on a project and certainly have not finished some I started previously.  Oh well, there's always tomorrow.  I have to really be in the mood.  So these pix will just have to do for now.  Enjoy!
