Not a new pic.....

 Photo from January, 2016
Our Lorelei is in the hospital with pneumonia.  She was admitted yesterday evening, and has to stay at least tonight and will see what tomorrow brings.  She felt bad Monday, then she her fever began...she did not throw up or anything like that.  Just a temp and wheezing.  She looks sick,  does not look horrible.  Her oxygen level is not normal.

The dr. was in this afternoon while we were there, and she was looking at the oxygen level and pulse rate and at Lorelei, and said you would never guess how sick she is by looking at her.  And she doesn't complain...teases and jokes with all the nurses, and whoever comes in, and cooperates and does whatever they ask.  So we will see what tomorrow brings.  Hoping she doesn't have to spend a third night, but if she does, we are thankful for the care she gets.

I am just posting this at both blogs...

Bits & Pieces


We saw this juvenile bald eagle a few days ago.  It was midday and I was shooting into the sun.  I was going west, and he was sitting in a tree a few feet off the other side of the road.


This jigsaw puzzle is waiting for me...if I start it now, I won't be able to leave it alone.  I love puzzles.  When we were kids we would usually get a new jigsaw puzzle each Christmas.  I have loved them as long as I can remember.  My favorite part to work is usually the sky, or sky and snow.  and my least favorite parts are dark greens.


Bubbie likes to claim my lap a lot of evenings.  He loves snuggle time.


Some fabrics my daughter picked up for me.  She couldn't resist sending me a picture.  The one with the squirrel and the ones in the right stack are by this designer Tula Pink.  If you have time, look here.  I googled Tula Pink Fabrics and then clicked images.  A LOT of her fabrics have an animal in them.  And they are so cute.  Every time I look I see something I didn't see before.  Roger had trouble seeing the rabbit in THIS one--do you?

I had not really looked at them before...now I regret it.  IF you take the time to glance, be sure and look at the different color versions.  It can really make a difference, and one or two of them, you can see the animals better in some colors than others.

Eagles from Wed, November 22


Wednesday we were left McDonald's and headed home.  We were not but a 3 or 4 minutes from there and I spotted a Bald Eagle...


And then there were two!  I quickly pulled well off the highway and got out snapped a few pics, but these were the only two I got half in focus.
