Resting and rusting in the Arizona sunshine.
Drive by scenery photo shooting. Sometimes you get the shot, but not usually .... This is somewhere in southern Oregon looking east of I-5. It was raining off and on and not the least bit warm. And no, I wasn’t driving at the time.

We stopped at Joshua Tree Park today. It’s as wondrous as everyone says it is, but Sedona is epic.
Wish you were here ~
One more and we’ll need a bigger car.
Dirty mouse? Just wash it up in your water bowl. He put it back in for a second rinse after this. It’s something he’s always done and let me tell you stepping on a wet fuzzy mouse with your bare feet will get your immediate attention!
My Westin kitty.
I’m the baby in the photo, with my Grandma and Great Grandma. This is my Great Grandma’s, Alice Mary Taylor Ross, 154th birthday. She was born on January 5, 1864 in Harrison, Missouri to Edmund and Rachel Taylor. Lincoln was President and the Civil War was still going on. She married Stanton D.L. Ross on February 25, 1883 and they had 8 children. She died on November 1, 1964, just two months short of her 101th birthday. (Notice The Pendleton Blanket on the back of the couch? It was given to me by me grandma because I always loved it and still do.)
I took this photo today, Jan. 3rd. here in Oregon City. It’s not the first flower that’s blooming I’ve seen, either! Crazy. 🌼
Their new favorite, of course. I put a faux sheep skin on the seat to give it some kitty protection. If you have cats, do you cover their regular sleep spots?
Let’s all break some rules ... or rulers. Hoping for a better 2019 and for Mueller to kick ass.
Lime in the coconut quinoa - super easy @instantpotofficial recipe! 1 cup quinoa. 1 can coconut milk. 1/4 cup water. 1/4 teaspoon salt. 1 small lime zested & juiced. Add it all to your Instapot, use manual settings and cook for one minute (really) at pressure. Allow to naturally release pressure for up to 10 minutes. That’s it! Thanks to @unsophisticook for the quick and easy recipe.
Best nine on IG. (thanks, @tinglesgirrl for sharing the link)
New to the house chair that originally belonged to Brian’s grandfather. We barely got it into the house and these two had to make sure it was a good fit. Not quite sure where’s it’s going to be placed. We have help coming tomorrow to bring in an old pump organ, that’s from Brian’s mom. The color is weird in these pictures, because of the bright light coming in through the front window. Maybe I can get a better shot after we get the organ inside.
Two kitties wishing you happy holidays and one having nothing to do with it.
“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.” Earl Nightingale
