The Elusive White Squirrel

    This is the elusive white squirrel that I have been trying to photograph for 4 months now. . .I finally managed, through a window, so the photos aren’t great. We have a heavily wooded natural area behind our house in Charlotte, NC.  The canopy of trees in our backyard is essentially a gymnasium for dozens of…

Pork Tenderloin Sliders

What a difference a week makes!

Moving Furniture

  I’m joining Susan (and company!) at Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday. No great project from me this week, just a handy little gadget you may not know to help you with your own metamorphosis.     These are the greatest invention since sliced bread…have you seen them?  We used them in our…

Shadows

         So thrilled to see some sun, especially with a bleak forecast of rain for the weekend. I’m joining Hey Harriet for Shadow Shot Sunday.                           The dogs are loving the sunshine too!       “May your joys be as…
