Oh What A Night!




I came home from a women's circle meeting to find this critter on the back porch. He had been helping himself to the cat food in the automatic feeder. When I came up the steps he jumped up on the railing and just sat there. I came in and got my camera and he still sat there. I got 2 pictures and he still sat there. I came in the house and he decided to take a nice slow stroll down the steps and off into the woods.

On a brighter note, I received my Halloween swap package today! My partner was Kathleen at: http://strandedinthemountains.blogspot.com/ She outdid herself with this package! I received a tee shirt from their camp in SD, a lovely pair of earrings, some sweet smelling bath products that I will try out tonight. I got the cutest little outfit that is really dish cloths and came with its own special poem. Its too adorable to use! I also got a cute little wooden farmgirl for my kitchen, a nice box of hot chocolate packets, a box of chocolate and a ceramic jack o lantern. Thank you so much Kathleen for such a delightful package! Yours is going to be pale in comparison. Thank you Pea ( http://peascorner.blogspot.com/ ) for getting this swap together!
