One evening

 We finally got a little rain in South Texas, so the grass has greened-up a bit. Mornings and evenings are a nice time to be outdoors, but the daytime temps are still in the mid 90's.
 Rascal has really grown and no longer looks like a kitten.
 That makes me kinda sad!
 I often see deer just outside my yard fence. That evening, I saw 2 bucks and 3 does.
 They didn't hang around when I went outside!
 I'm trying to decide if I should attempt a fall garden or not. We are still quite dry. I wanted to try planting Romanesco Broccoli. Of course, I still need to find the seeds.
I was awakened at 2:00 a.m. on Thursday morning, by the stinging of a scorpion. That was my third time to be stung on my finger while sleeping in my bed.(In about 5 years) I'm trying to get my husband to switch sides of the bed with me. haha He's not going for it.
Y'all come back,


  1. Awesome photos. WOW has kitty ever grown. I dont think I could handle scorpions in the house. Have a wonderful eve.

  2. A scorpion in bed!!!! I got married in Texas but I don't wanna live there!!! The kitten is a doll!

  3. Sorry to hear about your finger. I've been thinking of planting a fall garden as well. I'm still waiting for the temps to cool down. Never planted Romanesco Broccoli. Have you looked at Seed Savers Exchange for seeds?

  4. we've had 2 scorpions this week show up in the kitchen sink. one i rescued and took outside; the 2nd one i sprayed with bug spray and let die, then flushed him down the drain. buggers...

    your kitten cat is beautiful!

  5. Glad you got some rain.

    He's so cute. I luv the looks on his face.

    Scopion. I would not sleep unless I checked the bedroom every night. ugh!

  6. Glad you got some rain. Everything is just so dry. We have been watering but our yard is still suffering - by next year the only thing that will have survived is weeds. (they seem to have no problem with drought)
    Scorpion? I would be looking for another place to sleep!

  7. Oh Goodness! We had scorpions out in Washoe Valley when we lived there...hated them! Get out of my bed!

    Rascal has beautiful 'eye liner'! Such a handsome kitty!

  8. Scorpions in bed! Texas is another planet entirely.

  9. The news is full of info about black widow spiders and scorpions being in abundance this year in Oklahoma due to the drought. Just what I don't want to hear! I check my sheets before going to bed and my shoes before putting them on. Like it will matter. :) Ours - scorpions - are not poison, are yours? Take care.


Howdy, Thanks for dropping in. I love to hear from you!
