A Spoonful of Sugar and Surprises at Sunrise

 photo ill_zpsvaqndmk5.jpg

Little Abby was feeling under the weather yesterday.

This meant there was a lot of cuddling followed by hours and hours of her napping underneath my bed. Fortunately, she seems to be a lot better today.

And speaking of today, here are some of the outdoor happenings from this morning. Notice the pretty buck with the gorgeous antlers?

FYI: The white-faced calf seems to have adopted the other Mama as it's Mom. I don't think her birth mother's milk ever came in, so I guess that's why she's been following the other mother around.

As always, the larger versions of the pics are on Facebook. I wish they looked better, but I had to zoom in quite a bit.

These are from sunrise a couple days ago:

The pics aren't too good quality because they're taken from the video, but I loved seeing THREE bucks at once!

Just because....

I decided to just go ahead and post lots of photos and a few videos today.

I'll probably share photos/vids of the neighbor's new baby calves tomorrow. So far there are two of the little cutie-pies, one of which has a white face just like it's Mama!

One of the squirrels calls this Home Sweet Home.

It reminds me of an illustration from one of the Brambly Hedge Books.

I'm really going to miss Buddy (his real name is "Jax," just like our other neighbor's dog) when he and his master move this month. He's the best neighbor we've ever had.

The other day I went walking just to say hello to him. Up close he is one BIG dog and boy was he sweet. I wish I could keep him!
