Autumn Skies, Old Cartoons and Squirtle!

I LOVE Autumn in the mountains!  The skies are bright and brilliant, the colors of the leaves are gorgeous and the air is crisp and clean!  I just want to stay outside all day!  A ride up the Parkway yesterday was so refreshing...you just can't stay in a bad mood if you go out into nature!  It's just impossible!
So while I was "down South" visiting my family, Wayne found Squirtle in the habitat we built for her last year!  I had searched and searched this Spring and never found her...I was convinced she had gotten away, or something had gotten to her during the Winter.  She sure is a good hider!  Anyway, now I'm on a mission to fatten her up for yet another Winter!  She has grown so much and is absolutely gorgeous!
I started off the day with coffee and some hilarious old cartoons...this is one of my favorites ~ hope you enjoy it!
Now it's time to get outside again!  

Happy Tuesday!!!

love and peace always ~ Kathy

Butterflies, Blue Skies & Beer Brats!

Took a ride up the Blue Ridge Parkway to see if we could find some migrating Monarch Butterflies!  Not only did we find some, we found quite a few!  
The plight of these gorgeous butterflies is amazing!  I felt so lucky to be a witness of their journey.
The weather has been absolutely gorgeous!  I love the Autumn winds and clear blue skies...I could day dream on them forever!
But, at some point, one must eat!  I cooked these amazing Brats in "Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale", along with some onions!  They were sooooo good!!!  The only bad thing about them is the possibility of being squirted in the eye when you bite down on one!
And it's another gorgeous day!  Get out there!

love and peace always ~ Kathy
