Serene Scenery Sunday

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie, here with Serene Scenery Sunday!  We had a lot of wonderfully serene times here this week, and I just can't wait to fill you in!

On my practice run wearing the seatbelt harness, Mom and I drove past the Kansas Ocean. I didn't get to get out of the car, but I could smell the water - and Mom shot a few pix out of the window. There were Redhead Ducks there! Look:


Aren't they lovely?!? There are males and females in that shot. In case you can't distinguish between the two, here is a female redhead at the KSO, then a male:

Ha yip ya roooo!!! Just kidding! But Aunt CamCam and my Zimmie both got to go walk around the ocean. Here is a shot of a female Redhead in the front, and a male behind her:

Female and male Redhead Ducks!

The males have more of a red head!

Here's a male in flight:

Isn't he beautiful?!?  Cammie said it was really peaceful to watch them fly! She said they did a lot of take-offs and landings when she was there. Zim said when he went, they just swam around and enjoyed the breeze with him.

"Feel that ocean breeze, fellow redheads!"

Soon I'll be able to get out and walk around at the Kansas Ocean - then one day, I'll be able to walk that far!  I can't wait!  In the meantime, I'll spend time with my favorite redheads, Zim and Cammie!

"What's that over there, Zimmie?  Can we go see?"
"It's called a teenager, Mags."

That was REALLY serene!  Zimmie and I got to meet a very nice teenage boy who was visiting the boy next door.  He was very polite (Mom was impressed with his manners!) and asked if he could meet us.  He scratched Zim's ears just right and gave me lots of nice cuddles!  Both Zimmie and I liked him a lot.  I hope I get to see him again!

For some reason, Mom said this helps her and Daddy feel serene:


It's my Puppy Teething Stick by Kong. I'm not sure why it makes them more serene than me chewing on their hands. I thought they liked it when I do that! Have I mentioned that I'm teething?

Do you know what else I like to chew on, other than  Mom and Daddy's hands  my teething stick?

Cammie and me!

Yes, Cammie!  She and Zim are my favorite redheads!  Mom and Dad say that Cammie is the most patient, kind girl in the world, and the best big sister/aunt a girl could ask for!  I must agree!  Oh!   And the best big brother is Zimmie, of course!

"Hi, Zimmie!  What are you doing back there?"
"Hey, little one.  Just getting some alone time in.  Recharging.  Looking for the Zen of Zim Zone."
"Oooooh.  Can I do that with you?!?"

Cammie told me about where to find Zim, or I never would have known he was in the dining room!  (Check the 3rd photo down at this link!)  Mom thought Zim would be more serene if he did alone time alone, so I went into the kitchen and found a sunbeam to nap in.


I hope your Sunday is a serene one. Remember to go out and see beautiful things - and take time to kick back and put your feet up.


Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  1. LOL your puppy kong. I chewed shoes and jeans and opps ankles. Have a serene Sunday all and enjoy the big easy.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Once again the AoF have brought serenity to my world. Have a beautiful day my friends.

  3. Maggie you are going to have the BEST fun at the Kansas Ocean, I can already tell :)

  4. Reading your serene post puts me and momma in the mood to relax and enjoy the res of the weekend. Miss Cammie is very patient indeed. I'm sure Zim likes her taking one for the team of the toofers


  5. hee hee! Maggie, we liked the pictures of all of the redheads at the KSO :) The last picture of you really makes us feel serene! purrs,

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, HOllie

  6. You guys are the best redheads on the internet as far as I'm concerned! I just can't believe how big you are getting, Maggie! You know, I gave birth to a lot of puppies but never got to keep any of them. Cammie is sooooo lucky to have you :0)

  7. Huh. So your parents don't like you chewing on their hands? Who'd have thought? And Zim wanting to spend alone time alone? (Of course, with the teething, we can see how Zim want might a little time away from the Puppy Jaws of Doom...) We're actually amazed to see pictures of you sleeping - as far as we could tell, you pretty much never sleep, Madame Prime Minister!

  8. Maggie you are so adorable. Cammie must put up with a lot from your adorable shenanigans, BOL. You are to little to go to the Kansas Ocean but pretty soon

  9. Those red heads are cool! We don't get ducks like that up here

    Stop on by for a visit

  10. I feel totally serene now, Maggie. I think there's room in that sunbeam to nap with you...
