My dream year is when the Sox win the World Series, the Patriots win the Super Bowl, the Bruins win the Stanley Cup and the Celtics win their chamionship. Will I ever live to see it? I doubt it.

My 16 year old tomcat, Shreddy, caught two mice last night!

Go Shreddy!

My beagle, Sadie, never barks, unless she spots a cat or a deer in the back yard. Lately, she's been barking like crazy, as we have a whole pack of coyotes! We have learned to trust her judgement.

What? No one smiling today! Guess everyone is too busy laughing at "Today's Funny."

Well, I'm smiling like the Cheshire Cat. I go out every morning to water all my plants and my container veggies on and near the front porch.

My decorative plants on the porch, near the front door, include a little pot of jade plants. It's a small, low pot with three "baby" jade plants my best friend gave me about 3 weeks ago. The plants are thriving and, recently, an adult toad has taken to resting in a tiny bare spot in the pot. It looks so cute and is there most days. I've begun calling he/she Kermit and we're friends. I've encouraged him/her to enjoy all the bugs they can catch.

Well, today I went out to do my usual watering and, as I opened the front door to go out, I noticed the tiniest little toad on the door mat. It would've fit perfectly on a nickel. I flipped it was so cute.

Then, a few minutes ago, I went out again and there was another one...even smaller. This little sweetie was so tiny it could easily fit on my pinkie fingernail. Kermit was right there, so I suppose Kermit could be a mommy.

I think I'll try to take a picture the next time I spy the little babies. They are adorable and there's no way you could resist smiling when looking at them.

Katie, how sweet. Cade has a buddy that lives on the patio and when that kid goes outside the little frog just talks and talks to him he won't answer to anyone else but Cade... He is tiny and noisy

Katie, that's wonderful

I smiled today as I smelled the sweet aroma of the canteloupe I just bought at the farmer's market. Yum.

Once I realized the "black one" wasn't a mouse, the two baby CHICKS!!!! Hopefully there are more, but those were the two that were out of the nest box. I popped them back in, but I'm still smiling! They are sooooooooooo cute.
