A Busy Day

Over in the wee hours of the morning, I woke sneezing and sneezing—we had left the door open and I think some kind of pollen snuck in and attacked me.  Made for a pretty miserable day!  Even benadryl didn’t touch it, so I hear my bed calling me at an early hour tonight!

In spite of feeling poorly, I did manage to accomplish a lot today—laundry, mowing, quilting, and paperwork. 

Emmi has been in trouble most of the day.  On our walk this morning coming up a steep hill, I stopped to take a photo of a bird.  When I got to the top of the hill, Emmi was no where to be found.  I called and called, still no Emmi.  I hiked back to the house and had just started the Kawasaki mule to go look for her when here she came from down the driveway.  I scolded and scolded her so she has kind of avoided me today.  When Mike got home she sang for him and told him how woeful her day had been.

Michael went over to Lonn’s to help repair some broken water lines and was gone all day long. 

We think the grouse are looking for somewhere to nest—the two grouse are putting on quite the show every morning.

Courting Grouse Ugly old thing isn’t he—if I was the female and saw that thing coming at me—I would run!!


  1. Interesting picture of that grouse. I had never seen one like that.

  2. If any of our guys go missing we just grab one of their 'squeaky' toys & start squeaking it loudly. The high pitch squeak carries far & always brings the errant little traveler on the run pretty quick. We always give them a treat then & praise them for coming. It has worked well with all 3 of them over the years.

    I think beauty is in the eye of the Grouse beholder.
