Sunday Selfies, Mid October

Wow, its already the middle October! We have been inside a lot past few days as it is soggy, and wet outside...the sky is crying about something or other. Petcretary picked up 4 big garden cartfuls of walnuts this week, all still from that selfsame tree as she reported about last week. And she has lost count of all the limbs and branches she has cleaned up, they are still coming down. Maybe from all the winds we've been having, though not stormy winds, we think they are weakened and the slightest breeze brings them down...or a fat squirrel running over them, LOL! We heard the peeps chatting about likely cutting that offensive tree down, its so huge, they are worried that if the winds were right it could do big damages to our house. We'd then plant a nicer tree in its place. We have lots of oak and maple saplings we could transplant to that spot. There are a lot of other walnut trees in the back of our yard, but they are not such a trouble, though they too have made a bumper crop of those dang walnuts. One can hardly walk there, its like a field of ball bearings! 

Yesterday was our Auntie's Birthday; we can't go there right now (Canada), but perhaps next month, if the border would be open. It remains to be seen, because of Covid, the situation changes almost every day. Stupid virus. Petcretary had a long chat with her on the phone; at least they can stay in touch that way.

Well, here we are from a sunnier day!

We had to say goodbye to one of the kitties of our hosts for the Sunday Selfies, The Kitties Blue; this week.

Giulietta was suddenly very ill and gained her Angel Wings. We posted about that  HERE.

But none the less, we'll show you the card we made in her honor, again.


                                                                                       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We send our love and hugs to The Kitties Blue, at the Cat On My Head, and thank them for continuing with this weekly blog hop, known as The Sunday Selfies, despite their sad hearts at this time.

And we all need to keep the purrs, POTP and pawyers coming for Sawyer, he continues to deal with all those seizures, poor little kitty.

  3. Hello sweet Benji and sweet Dalton, it's so good you can get out and lounge on the grass, do you gather walnuts, too? Maybe your hu-mom should make something "decorative" from all of them???
    Her memory image for Giulietta is very beautiful and thoughtful ...

  5. Hi pups! We've been seeing walnut and butternut trees everywhere with huge loads of nuts. Our hawthorn tree is loaded down with berries this year too. So was the pear tree. We're hoping this doesn't mean a really bad winter is ahead! It's starting to get colder around here in WNY.

  7. Its good to see you guys (even if it is a older picture) we have been having loads of wind here, Mom is glad we don't have any nut trees, the humongous pine cones from the huge tree on the corner of the yard are enough. And we were glad to hear the border will be opening, but I gotta say, the Canadian government has not changed how difficult it is to get back in! We hope they get that fixed soon! We hope you ALL have a furry marvellous week!

    2. We are not sure we want to risk going there until they have their mess properly sorted out. It would be awful to be stuck there, even though we have both got all our 'papers' in order...

  10. I love your selfie! Or rather an ussie…since it’s both of you together. The weather has finally gotten cooler though we did have a lot of rain last week. But the next few days are supposed to be sunny. I hope it’s sunny for you too. ~Ernie

  11. I love old trees. I think of all they have seen. But sometimes they become too dangerous. God bless Giulietta.

    1. We hate cutting down trees, but like you say, sometimes they get to be dangerous...if it fell one way, it would 'kill' our fence, it=f it fell the opposite way it might kill part of our house, or even someone in the furmily...sigh...
