Here we are.....



Friday Pop Quiz......

Do You Know What Animal Lives Here?


Here's the front door

Here's the back door.....
not a rabbit...
not a ground squirrel...
this has nothing to do with the answer...
I just like the photo...
forty hours later...give or take...

we've arrived to another Friday....

this week:

I've dined out twice...

baked what Man In Black says was my best pot roast ever....

walked eight miles with the intention of this becoming a regular routine......

made dinner plans with friends to try a recently opened restaurant.....

enjoyed dreaming of a new mini cooper......

confirmed definite plans for a road trip in April that's been talked about for two years....

listened to more episodes of "Jeopardy" than I would have desired....

knit on three separate projects while not enjoying a single one....

watered the Queen's Anne Lace pony pack dreaming of how beautiful they'll be in a couple of months.....

checked the computer several times a day hoping/wishing/wondering if there'll be a new video of my granddaughter....

Enjoy your Friday...my knitting is waiting....so is the sofa after walking a brisk 2 1/2 miles...


Did you guess???
A desert tortoise... not found in a park...
but living in the wild up against the hillside...a very special discovery.

so the pot roast was a success!? That is good to hear. I will try and take some more vids of zoe, she is getting to be a little crawler....

I hope you'll be driving the mini on your road trip; can't wait to hear about it?

I thought it was going to be a meerkat! Did I spell that wrong??

You were too busy taking pictures to notice that there is a snake in both your desert tortoise burrow pics. Look closer! ha ha! :-)

Very cool shots. I wouldn't have thought to take a pic of the desert tortoise burrows! Now if we can just remember where they are so we can go back and check them out again!
