1269 PHOTOS: Things That Jump

So today is Wednesday, August 28, 2019! So glad it’s the end of the month. I’m getting down to the nitty gritty of my photographs for the month of July. I know I said I might do another post yesterday, but I got busy doing things around the house and finishing up editing photos for next month. By the time I finished doing everything, around 6pm, I was too tired to do much of anything. I was falling asleep on the couch. So, here I am, posting at my somewhat normal time.

It is my favorite time of the day! The sun is rising, crickets chirping – all is quiet and peaceful!

I think all in all, Kalimba (above) is my favorite cat we’ve owned so far. Or does he own us? Despite the fact that he gets me up so early and he acts more like a dog than a cat, he is a good cat. All he wants is a clean litter box, some food and water and to be pretty much left alone – unless he is hungry. And then he will bug you to no end.

little black spider I saved from the pool

He is a bold jumper and looks quite scary. But he is not nearly as big as the trampoline spider we have hanging out near the deck.

We have decided that the pool needs to be replaced. It’s got a slow leak in it… I bought it in 2011, so I definitely got my money’s worth out of it. Come spring, we will have a new pool. I’m glad it’s the end of the season, we don’t really need the pool right now. Although I do miss getting in it, it’s getting a bit cool to get in! (That never stopped me before…unless it got too cold to get in.) We’ll be closing it up in a week or so anyway!

You’ve seen this little guy before!

just hopping up to say hi!

And my little tree frog! We have a toad that hangs out on the deck as well, but I haven’t gotten many pictures of him this year…I’ve included a picture of him at the end (it’s not one of my 1269 photos, but that’s ok!) of this post.

I think he hangs out behind the couch throughout the night. And then makes an appearance shortly after day break. The toad liked to hang out underneath the shelving unit on the deck.

Meet Mr. Toad

So, that’s my story for today! I hope you enjoyed my ramblings!

Today is National Cherry Turnovers Day! Yummy!!

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!
