Our favorite trick or treater was Gavin, he's my friend's grandson. He's was dressed as a sloth. Isn't he adorable?
As you can tell from our first photo, the leaves are finally turning. We also have been getting frequent rains and with the current warm weather, we've had some nice reblooms like the foxgloves! Some flowers I picked and put in my new vase. It's raining today and I wanted something nice things in the house to cheer the day.
We have a bird living in our backyard. It's a small mourning dove and I am not sure what happened to it but I'm fairly sure there is something wrong with it's wing. He's been living in the backyard for over a week. I've been making sure he has water and there are always seeds on the ground here in our garden. Please don't tell me to catch him and help him, I've already tried.
I ended up resolving that he is somewhat safe here at Hotel Michele. He has food and water and I did see he managed to get up on the garage roof at one point. Birdie is safe here. Scout has no idea he is here (she's a bit obtuse to put it mildly) and he is safe in our garden from the ferrel cats. Hopefully his wing will heal during his stay here.
This week on our suffrage blog we had a feature on suffrage and animals. As part of that theme, we are offering a giveaway of a charm pack of woof woof meow fabric and the book. It's Quilting Cats and Dogs. To compete for the prize, just leave a message on the blog post here.
