How Do We Like Living Here So Far?

Gee, that's a hard question! Let me see ...

Yesterday morning on our way into town (our activities yesterday require another whole blog post) we saw in this order, a herd of antelope that have been hanging out in the area around Bucky Beavers', cows, a coyote, a bald eagle, about four unidentified hawks, more cows. When we arrived home (the first time —see I told you yesterday was crazy) as I drove down the driveway I spooked our Great-Horned owl who was apparently sitting on our barn and all I saw was a huge wingspan sweeping away from me.

On our walk to the bottom with the dogs last night after dinner I looked up to see four big bucks (deer) with large racks running across the ridgeline on the top of the hill. Gorgeous!

Just as it was beginning to get dark I looked out to see our resident mamma moose and baby at the mineral lick right outside our diningroom window. 

And that was just yesterday! We are also fond of sitting out on the front porch and listening to the pair of owls perform a duet of squawks and calls after dinner.

Geez, right now I am sitting here at the table typing this post and who shows up but mamma moose and baby, right now! And here they are.

Any more silly questions you'd like to ask?

Ah….that’s why we work so hard in the first place - so we can really truly live the good life when it’s time to settle down.  Goes to show you don’t need that much to be truly happy…and content…just “being” is enough….enjoy it!  grin

Seems like heaven being around all that wildlife!! Who needs tv? Can’t wait to hear about your trips to town.

Like Bigsis, I’m looking forward to hearing about your adventure going to town.
How amazing to look out your window and find so many surprises.

Okay Bigsis and Marty, trip to town coming soon! smile
