Another local resident spotted - Mouse

On Friday I was working on an area that I again had a good view of the meadow below the house.  I have been keeping a look out for the gopher so I could try out the long lens on Craig's camera.  The day was quite pleasant and there was very little breeze.  I caught a gray movement out of the corner of my eye.

I carefully went in and got the camera, the hunt was on.

As long as he stays out in the meadow I don't mind.  If he comes into my garage, well lets just say "the trap is set!"

Short day on the painting project.  We watched the USA play in the World Cup.

Daily countdown:
493 days, or 1 year, 4 months, days to go.

Time spent Painting the House:  
Me:  3.5 hours  Saturday         Total = 50 hours
Craig: 2.5 hours Saturday  Total = 10.5 hours  

Exercise Goal:  
1000 miles on the treadmill,  (Pretty much on hold due to the painting work!)
Total walked = 170 miles  
Someday I will be hiking 1000 miles  in National Parks!


  1. Does that furry fool think he's camouflaged under those green leaves? Good job getting his pic!

  2. Well lets hope he stays put in the meadow!! That lens must have done the trick cause its a great pic.

  3. Great picture. He's such a cute little guy!

    You're doing GREAT on your painting goals. We need to start some outdoor painting, but unfortunately we don't have the wonderful weather that you have. It's very hot and humid.

  4. Good job on getting that picture of the little gopher!
