Deer and baby fawns

I know it's been a few days since I posted - we are still hanging around.

Monday we had the normal rainy day -

In fact, we had a pretty good rain storm with thunder and lightening.  The only good thing about it was it didn't last that long.

However, the weather did get better yesterday - the first day in a very long time that it did NOT rain!

So, we have been out riding on the golf cart two or three times a day - since now it it way too hot to be out for very long.  At least when we are moving in the golf cart we have a breeze.

Yesterday, while we were out for our morning ride we were fortunate enough to see a momma deer and twin fawns.  They stopped and looked at us for a while before running into the woods.  Lorelai watched them too and when they ran she clapped her hands (her way of saying "Yeah!)

Speaking of Lorelai, I know that I was really worried about her eating - she just didn't seem to want to eat anything.  Well, I didn't have to worry - she is becoming a very good eater.  Today she ate a quarter of a chicken breast, some mac and cheese, and some grapes that I peeled and quartered.  I think she just had to discover the many different tastes - and she has discovered that she likes things with some spice to it.  She also LOVES fruit - if you fix her plate and put all her food on it - she will eat all the fruit first!  Apples, pears, bananas, cantaloupe, grapes - I really have not found any fruit that she doesn't like.  Also, if you have anything with cheese on it - she will dig right in - grilled cheese sandwiches - cheese omelets - mac and cheese.  The thing is, she just doesn't eat that much at one time.  For example, the list of today's lunch was not completed - almost, but she left a little chicken and some mac and cheese (no grapes though - they were eaten first).  However, I give her two snacks during the day - one mid morning before her nap and then another one in the afternoon after her afternoon nap.  This seems to work out for us and for her.

Now, the last couple of days she has had a special treat in the mornings.


As you can tell, she loves having doughnuts with her Grampe!

Yesterday, while I was cleaning up the kitchen, I realized Little Miss was no where to be seen.  I went into the laundry room (where the dog food is) but she wasn't in there - in fact, she has really stopped getting into the dog food.  So, I called her and she came out of our bedroom with a little surprise for me.

One of my t-shirts, which she put on herself, and one of my bathing suit tops around her neck like a cape.

Surprise Nana!

Now, Dan and I are continuing to work on things around the house - lately trying to get the garage straight.  We have put a lot of stuff on a local on-line site that is sorta like a garage sale without having to have a garage sale.  We have sold quite a bit of stuff (including Dan's big table saw) but what didn't sale we donated to our local shelter.  Our goal is to be able to get the car back into the garage AND get the second storage room emptied.  

As you can tell, by the first pictures, the screen room has not been done yet.  We are "on the books" for the week of August 12th thru the 16th.  We are really looking forward to having it completed - Dan says everyday that he can't wait for it to get done.  (To tell the truth, neither can I.)

Well, not too much else is going on - so, I'll close for now.

Have a good week and I'll talk to you soon!

  1. Lorelai is such a cutey! Already dressing herself too. Nice that you are finally having better weather. After a heat wave here we are having the occasional rain day, but not too bad.
    The hubs is still restoring his dinghy, hopefully he gets it in the water before it's cold again.
    Hugs and enjoy the rest of the week,


Rainy, Dreary Days
