Life Happening - In Our Back Yard!

These certainly are not great pictures of moose, but it is so interesting and fun to have them in our yard and close enough to be able to hear the sounds they make.  They have no fear of me nor my puppy and I can stand around on the deck photographing them and they totally ignore me.  Just hoping so much those little twin moose will make it through the winter/wolf season.  Our moose numbers have been decimated by the burgeoning wolf populations in our valley and neighboring valleys.  Just sayin. . . .

 The bull is on the left with the cow and her twins.
 Mama Moose and her twin calves.
 Pretty small rack on this bull.  Must be fairly young.
 The Twins.
 This all four of the moose that have been hanging around the house a lot lately.  I'm very careful when I'm out walking! 

 It's so fascinating to me how they get down on their knees to eat.  They love the nice, lush green grass around our house.

Hi, Mama!

Life Happening - Lunch with my Quilt Buddies

One of my favorite days is a work day with my quilt buddies - Drin, Ellen and Joan.  And of course, we like to have lunch together. 

 I always enjoy setting a table, and like to look for new ways to do that.  So yesterday I headed for the dining room cupboards to find something different.  And I did!  Some years ago Walt's mother gave me a beautiful luncheon set that is onyx (black) and clear glass.  It includes 4 black luncheon plates, onyx and glass glasses, glass cups and onyx saucers.  It's beautiful.
So I started putting things together and this is what I came up with.  I liked it!  And we had a delightful lunch together.  Another great day with my quilt buddies.  Life Happening!
