Setting Up an Aquarium

It has been a few years since I have had any pets and even more years since I’ve had an aquarium. For a few years I had several aquariums going at a time with different fish or critters in them. It is hard to find apartments that allow any pets around here unless you can… Continue reading Setting Up an Aquarium

Sometimes Life Gets in the Way

I let you know last blog that I was packing and getting ready for one more move. It has been a few years since I have felt at home after selling my house and making the first move. This is the fourth move for me in about as many years – but this new apartment… Continue reading Sometimes Life Gets in the Way

What – Another Move???

As many of you know, I lived in my little old house for 33 years. I sold it when I retired, since I wouldn’t be able to afford the upkeep on it with just my pensions. It was a very old house (built in 1900). I am currently in my 3rd apartment in the 4… Continue reading What – Another Move???

My Plant Balcony

A little over a year ago I moved into a small apartment that had a little plant balcony. I couldn’t go on the balcony, but I could put plants on it. The balcony is about 25 inches wide and 57 inches long and there is a 3 foot step to get out onto it –… Continue reading My Plant Balcony

The Move

Well, I have moved again. It is almost time to use No Fixed Address (NFA) to locate me – LOL. I went from living in my own home for over 30 years to 3 moves in the last 3 years. I started packing early for the move, since I would be away from home while… Continue reading The Move

Spring is on the Way

Yes, Christmas is on the way too – but spring WILL be here sometime in the next couple of months. In the meantime, I will be moving at the end of March and have been packing in advance. The first 2 weeks in March I will be bird and house sitting, so I won’t get… Continue reading Spring is on the Way

Photo Shoot with St. Peanut

I haven’t featured St. Peanut here in ages, since I don’t feed the birds in the summer when natural food is abundant. My little feeder has been out for a couple of weeks now and I’ve got several Chickadees visiting so I sat at the window for just a few minutes and ended up with… Continue reading Photo Shoot with St. Peanut

White-tail Deer on my Doorstep

A White-tail Deer and her 3 fawns have been on the area in front of my window for the last several days. The first pictures were taken from my window looking over a field just past the parking lot in July and August – up to yesterday. This morning, I found them on my doorstep. … Continue reading White-tail Deer on my Doorstep

A Little Walk

Yesterday, I had absolutely nothing scheduled except for laundry, so after the laundry was done, I went for a walk along the Seine River.  I just brought my little camera that does’t have a lot of zoom, since it fits into my pocket. First thing I found was on a tree trunk just behind my… Continue reading A Little Walk
