Being Prepared

Just a reminder..next week when we go off of daylight savings time is when your smoke detector batteries should be replaced.  So put batteries on your list..ours take the little square ones..so that is what it says on my grocery list  “Little square batteries for the smoke alarms.”  I don’t care if the old batteries still work..in six months they probably won’t.  There is a time to be frugal ..and this is not one of them.

The big wind got one of the trees in our nephews yard next door. No one was injured..but I bet Bailey barked up a storm!

Snapped off half way up the trunk.  That seemed to be the story with many of the trees that fell during the big wind storm. This was probably one of the reasons that Chance wanted company outdoors during the wind storm..he is a dog and mistakenly thinks there is safety in numbers, either that or he is afraid to die alone.  We were prepared to lose electricity, luckily we didn’t although the lights flickered.  I put extra water in the fridge..so Chance would have water just in case we were without electricity a long time.

This morning it is frosty..

IMG_8843  Chance and I were out for an early walk.  I call this the brown time of year..it is like we are stuck between the green and the white..yup stuck on brown.  Stupid deer keep knocking the top rail of the fence down..there is a huge buck in here..Chance and I saw him..he is about an 8 to 10 pointer and is massive. He still had the velvet on his antlers..If I would have had the camera out of its case and turned on while I was driving into the yard I would have gotten a photo…but alas I was not prepared.

Now go put those batteries on your grocery list:)

  1. I like Chance’s desire for someone to accompany him outdoors! I don’t like to go out in the dark alone either!
    Enjoyed your latest blogs+pics….the pumpkin snake is something I have never seen. Clever. The boys look great in their costumes also; how fast they grow up,,,soon they will think trick or treating is obsolete….

    We have had several hard frosts latley. Miss Kitty does not like getting white frost on her delicate pads! She warms up on the deck about 2 feet from where the juncos are eating on the deck floor….she poses no threat anymore. Like me, she is getting older!!! (I can no longer chase birds either)

    We gave Wayne and Ernie their present from you!!!! They love it!!!
