Baby Steps

Not much is going on around here, which is fine with me. Bernie has been playing with the new camera more than I have and took these shots of our neighbor's front yard.

They switched out their front yard lamp light for an orange "pigtail" light. It is just perfect with all the fall colors in the yard. Next year I'm going to try to grab an orange light too when they are seasonally offered for Halloween.

Speaking of orange....the FOCIT (Faithful orange cat in training) is doing quite well in his studies. He now "snoopervises" all tasks, especially floor cleaning, and is exhibiting several other "orange cat" traits. It is quite interesting to watch his personality compared to the other cats.

Missy continues to lounge on the deck. Poor Hart; inside Frenchie attacks him about once a day, and for some reason if he heads outside after that attack, then Missy lays into him.

Frankly I am surprised he hasn't packed up and left home.

Our goldfinch feeder has caught on with the goldies at last.

Tate enjoys keeping an eye on all the birdie doings. We had quite a bit of snow yesterday, with a lot more to come on Wednesday. The bird feeders are being used a lot this morning, with wood peckers, chickadees, doves, finches, toehees all gobbling seed like crazy.

The tomato plants and petunias pots are hanging out in the garage beneath a window to soak up sunlight until the storms pass through.

Yes, the frost (and the snow) is on the pumpkins here, but I'm not quite ready to pull up the dabs of summer/fall colors just yet.
Like I said: Not much going on around here. I did figure out how to download pictures for the first time from the new
Baby steps...just taking baby steps to learn how to really use this thing.

Ahhh...nice pictures! I've been waiting for those first shots. That close-up of Tate is great! Keep working with it...and then, if and when I get my new camera (hah!) you can walk me through the settings and how-tos! :)

I have confidence those baby steps will turn into strides soon. Great shots...

You'll soon be a pro...if Bernie let's you have a go at the camera! I like the orange light.

oh the baby steps are proving worthwhile. I so enjoyed the crisp clear shots. I also like the new orange cat's call letters.

Mmm love that orange kitty shot especially. What a cute little face. Too bad my little Orange Miss was just "done" or we might have planned some very cute offspring :)

Bernie is doing well with the baby steppin'...
