Torrential Rains

Yesterday was crazy wet.  We drove by the local golf course and it was completely under water!  OMG!

All of the streams and creeks were flooding thus closing down a lot of the roadways.

Chipper did not care one less.  He loves any adventure, even the ones with rain and snow, lol.

We cut through the State Park to get to work and we encountered this sign.  It was okay because we weren’t going down this road…thank goodness!

This is the Crick.  Most people call it the Creek but in Philly we aren’t like most people.  It flooded so much that it took over the picnic area.  Wow!

We survived and the flooding receded.  All’s well that ends well 🙂

SPRING – The Bird Watching

The Roomie loves to bird watch in April because of the migration factor.  We like to get outside.  It’s Win-Win!

It was a wonderful cloudy day.  It’s still cold outside but we all feel like the warmer days are coming soon!

Rainy Days Do Not Get Us Down

The weather has been fierce as of late.  We could just hibernate or we could roam the woods.  We chose the woods!

Homie has spent most of his life as a garden Gnome so when he came to live with us he’s done nothing but explore any place he can.  He is also very photogenic, don’t you think?  The buds of spring are popping out all over the trees.  He thought it was so beautiful!

Chipper has spent his life exploring.  No jealousy among these gnomes though.  Homie loves listening to his adventure stories!

Ingrid just loves being a troll.  The fresh air and woods take her back to her childhood in Norway 🙂

And Elsa…dear Ellie…she just has fun where ever she lands!  We hope you enjoyed your day too!

Bird Watching With Remy & Alfie

Yesterday we went our little park.  It’s where we like to go for a little break from the day.

It’s been warm these past few days.  It’s really nice even though it’s supposed to be winter.  It’s always nice to get a small break from those arctic temperatures.

This particular park is a fan of bird watchers around town.  They even have an elevated deck with benches.  There are hawks, cardinals, blue jays and robins.  So much beauty to behold among the browns and blacks of winter.

It’s a lot of fun.  Some would think it boring but not us.  Happy January!

It’s Peak Leaf Season

It’s raining now but we wanted to get out for perhaps the last of the Leafy pictures for this Autumn Season.

Elmer was feeling right at home in the forest.  We are glad we don’t live in the Urban Center where trees are few.

The Miser Brothers were debating who was in control of the weather now.  They always argue about that.  Today was 46 degrees so Freezie was gloating.

Carol, Hattie and Jonathan love these little adventures too.  You know Jonathan is all about picture-taking.  It is life.

Autumn Is Close At Hand

Hey Brody…pull my finger…HA HA HA!

Don’t you just feel bad for me right now?

The trees are starting to turn.  We are all excited that Fall begins on Friday!!!  We love October…you know because we are all Halloweenish.  It’s going to be so much fun.  The Roomie said we can start Halloween decorating in October!

We can’t wait!  Especially Melvin!

Visiting History

This weekend Hope Lodge had their Charter Day Open House.  This was so much fun.  The Roomie takes us out to local Historical places if they are holding an event of some kind.


Mick likes to visit places beyond the Magic Kingdom.  So much to see in the world.  Hope Lodge gives a glimpse into the 18th Century.

Michael was in full regalia and making History come alive for the visitors with his Musket display.  We learned so many interesting facts about the Revolutionary War.   Combat and life wasn’t what we had expected.

It was a very cold day but so worth getting out and getting our knowledge on!  Mick told the Roomie he wants to see more.  Hopefully we have some cool adventures coming up.
