Sunday Musings

Happy Sunday efurybody! I hope you all had fun at #SciFiPawty yesterday. I know I did!

I also got my first stroller ride of the season yesterday. Here I am in my stroller:

We saw hawks and a robin. We didn’t have the good camera, so we didn’t get a good picture of the hawk, but we did get a good picture of the robin.

We were walking along, and all of a sudden we heard this squeaking coming up out of the ground!

We kept walking along and then we saw all these mounds that hadn’t been there last year.

Finally our mystery was solved. Look what we found! A prairie dog. Their tunnels must be so close to the surface that we could hear them squeaking in their tunnels.

When we got home and Mom took me out of the stroller and took the harness off, guess what she did. She put the harness on Candy! Then she put Candy in MY stroller. MY STROLLER! How dare she! Don’t believe me? Just look at these pictures:

She looks like she’s made herself entirely too comfortable in MY stroller. I just don’t know what I’m going to do. I really don’t mind having fursibs, but do I really have to share everything with them? Next thing you know they’ll be taking over my blog and my twitter account! What’s a kitty to do?

That’s it for this week. have a good week my furriends!

Barr Lake State Park

Mom took me someplace new today – Barr Lake State Park. This park has a nature reserve area (that pets aren’t allowed in) and a part that has a boating dock. The trail around the lake is over 8 miles, but we just did a couple of miles. It may be fall on the calendar, but it was 90 degrees today and there’s very little shade on the trail.

This is one of Mom’s favorite parks because it has over 300 kinds of birds. I’m not sure I believe her because we didn’t see hardly any birds. But we did see lots of these:

The water in the lake was very low. It’s the end of the season and most of it has evaporated. In the spring the water comes practically up to the trail.

 We also saw some things I’ve never seen before. Mom said the little fuzzy one is called a woolly worm. What a funny name! The big one is called a horse. I have a horse pal on twitter, but I didn’t know horses were this big and that a person could ride one.

Like I said, it was hot and we didn’t find much shade, so we didn’t stay very long. Cooler weather is coming and I’m looking forward to longer outings and visiting more new places.

Good idea from Yoda the Dog’s blog

Yoda wrote about making his blog carbon neutral and how we all can do that, too. Well, Mommy planted lots of trees in the yard when she first moved in, but I want to plant my own tree. So I followed the directions from Yoda’s blog and planted my own tree. If you click on my carbon neutral badge it will take you to the site that will help you plant your very own tree! We live in a very pretty place and I want it to stay that way, so let’s plant lots  of trees!
