Pet Me!

“I am Rabbit. I can be anywhere. I can be everywhere. I am outside time. I am outside dimension. Do you want me? I am yours.” 
―Mark Andrew Poe

Here is the reaction of our rabbit Luna after my daughter stopped petting her. All she wants is a little attention!! As always, please excuse the grainy nature of the photograph.

Humidity=Bugs & Sweat

“An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.”

-Henry David Thoreau

WOW!!!! Today was the most humid day for hiking that I have encountered so far this year. At 5:20 am the temperature was already 66 degrees and the humidity was sky high. The forecast tonight is for thunderstorms so I guess the high humidity just comes with the territory! As a matter of fact, it was so bad that as I stretched before I even started hiking I was sweating profusely. Needless to say, the sweating never stopped!

All in all it was still a great hike.

Another fine trail at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation.

The trail was partially obscured by the brush on both sides.

Early in the morning the peace and stillness of the woods is mesmerizing.

Happy Hiking!!!

Another great hike!! Even when this guy slithered across my path (I did let loose with a string of expletives!) I at least recovered long enough to get a picture. 

Happy Hiking!!!

Blue Skies And Spring

Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity.”

-John Muir

With summer rapidly approaching and daylight extending way past what we were seeing just a couple of months ago, the best way to end a day to head to Ward Pound Ridge Reservation. With clear blue skies and empty trails, this hike was as close to perfect as you can get.

Awkward-Daily Prompt

An awkward scene unfolded this morning as my daughter was getting ready to go to school. As you can see by the picture, our cat is sitting in the window. The rabbit, who is always trying to hang out with him, was trying to figure out a way to get onto the ledge so they could share the moment together. Unfortunately for the bunny, she slipped and fell off of the desk. Now before you freak out and wonder if the beautiful bunny was hurt, take a look right below her. That’s right, it’s my daughters laundry bag. Thankfully she fell into it and it was pretty much filled with clothes and that cushioned her fall.

The Odd Couple

One of the oddest friendships I have ever seen is the one shared by our cat and rabbit. You would think at the very least that the cat would try to eat the bunny but no, they are the best of friends! Now if I could just get our 90 pound dog into the picture…
