As of late...

Pieces of your spirit...lying in the sand
rest in peace my feathered friend,
soar high above the land.

And then there was this little guy...
And then this!

Happy Autumn!

Sugar...ah, honey, honey...

Found this awesome "professor eggplant" on my early morning trip to our local farmer's market "Transylvania Farmer's Market".  Not only did this little guy come home in my basket, he was joined by some tiny little tomatoes, yukon gold potatoes, red peppers, a variety of lettuces, a variety of kale, a variety of squashes, fresh trout fillets and some green eggs that were still warm from the chicken butt!  All fresh, local and organically produced!  Now I just have to plan my dinners for the week!  Why?
This documentary changed my life!  I encourage you to download it and watch will change your life, too!  We must put an end to this epidemic, or our children and grandchildren may not even live as long as us.  Here's a link to the website ~ something every American should know about!  And this is another video I think everyone should watch ~
Love one another!

Happy Saturday!

Little bits of good...

First of all "Thank You" to everybody that took advantage of the 30% off Animal coupon for my Etsy shop last week!  The love was overwhelming!  Ya'll are the best!!  So, in an effort to "give back", "pay it forward", "random acts of kindness", or whatever the case may be, I'm giving back to YOU, with a random "freebie", my way of saying thanks and paying it forward!  It will be a surprise!!!  All you have to do is comment on this post and I'll pick a winner next Wednesday [September 10th] ~ also the day I'll be going to the Mountain State Fair!  I can't wait for that!
I can't believe it's already September!  Have to start planning for the holidays and the New Year!  I'm already starting to fill in some events for 2015!  I'm always looking for a unique planner/calendar, besides my normal boring desk calendar and I found the perfect one for next year!  Not only is it gorgeous, the cover itself is a constant reminder that I have everything in life that I need!!!  
I ordered it from Katie Daisy [The Wheatfield] on Etsy [of course] and it's awesome!  I can't wait to start writing and doodling in it, as well as using it for my planning!  Check it'll probably want one for yourself!

Happy Saturday!!!

love and peace always ~ Kathy

Worms and bears and stuff like a discount coupon!

These adorable little caterpillars are all over the place right now!  They are so cute...and curious, but I'm pretty sure they will sting the crap out of you!  And then there's the bear...
...he started showing up at our bird feeders about a month ago.  We haven't seen him in a couple of weeks...maybe he/she is out looking for a mate to hunker down with this winter!  Here he is with a mouth full of suet!  And then there's the deer...
...we have several families of deer that live in our forest...this is one of the babies.  They are so precious!  I love seeing them in the mornings and late afternoons. And why do I love animals so much?

Because they bring us joy.
Because they are at our mercy.
Because they teach us kindness. And compassion. And understanding.
Because they are voiceless.
Because they wish us no harm.
Because they are our companions. And because we are all animals. I will never stop being a voice, for them.

Happy Labor Day!  Enjoy 30% off from my Etsy shop!!  Use coupon code ANIMAL ~ coupon code valid until midnight Friday, September 5th!  Enjoy!
Love and peace always ~ Kathy
