October Continues, Finder, Keeper and Callie

Ground is covered with acorns...
I spotted a bluebird yesterday
best shot I could get
An article read in New York Times
this afternoon.
I found interesting and will share.

"it's the things you come across,
not the things you buy, that
can carry the deepest imprints.."

Brought to mind a number of small, no value items
that I have found over the years that are in this home and bring back special memories...

Interesting - if you care to read about it
go to
you can download a sticker of where book is coming from.
I have so many books that may come off of my shelves
and may leave some of them in different places.
Will be interesting to see where they wind up.

Callie, is a little better and would only eat when I feed her by hand.
Today she ate a slice of ham out of her bowl and loves a bowl of milk.
Not the healthiest diet but at least she is eating something.
Refuses everything but this ham, offered her some scrambled egg
this morning and she turned her head.
Her liquid antibiotic - the syringe fell apart - I put in a spoon, open her mouth
and it it goes - with my thought - hope she does not decide to close her mouth
and take my fingers or part of hand.
So will see what tomorrow brings.
She is drinking water and took a short walk with me today.

The last few nights really cold to this one
in high 30's to low 40's.
In the past cold weather never bothered me.
Last night - long underwear (which I never thought I would wear to sleep in ;)
sure felt good...

Hope Callie continues to improve.

The asters are beautiful, and I love that you were visited by the blue bird of happiness. Even in our very cold winters, I would not be able to sleep in long underwear! My good wishes go out to Callie.

Laura said...

I'm so sorry to read this about your dear Callie… sending out loving spoonfuls of healing prayers and reiki. xoxo

Sallysmom, Laura :)
Barb, never could I have done this in years past - only the last 2 years and when you sleep alone :)

We have the coziest sheets for winter. I got them through QVC. They are polar fleece. The cuddliest sheets you could ever want. They don't pill like some flannel ones and are a little lighter in weight. Those, with the down comforter are plenty warm for the coldest nights.
It sounds like Callie might be on the mend. Joe's dog got very sick, when he caught a bunny. He had it in his mouth and Joe took it out. The dog had quite a bit of blood in his mouth and got so sick. Thought the dog was going to die. Maybe Callie got hold of something in the woods.
Hope Callie continues to get well.

Balisha, I do not like flannel or the polar fleese. Just like the percale and with down comforter always fine until lately.
It may be because it is so damp outside and weather changed quickly.

Hope Callie improves. I slept in bed 10 hours last night. I had woken but the room was so cold I decided to go back to sleep!

Tabor, please take care of yourself and do all you know to do. You were one of the first to respond when I started posting
years ago...

I love your fall photos and yes I believe that the things we find are the most cherished. Great sentiment. :)
