Serene Snippets Sunday

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie, here with some miscellaneous pictures of things we found very serene throughout this past week.  Ready to take a look?

"Are you?"

Let's head out on a walk!  We always see cool -- I mean "serene" things on our walks.  The other day, Cam and I made an important discovery:

"Look, everybody!  Giant straws!!!""
This is so cool!"

I'm not sure what it exactly means, finding giant straws laying around like that - but Mom said it means we might have some new roads to explore pretty soon!  How great is that?!?

These next four pix are all from this morning's walk.  This whole block right here:

"There's one there!  And there!  And there!  And..."
"...there!  And there!  And there!  And ..."

... Mom now refers to as "The Land of a Thousand Squirrels".  She might be under-counting.  Trust me on that one!

We walked down this road that we don't often go down, so that was fun!  The sidewalk is about 5-10 feet higher than the road, so you can see all kinds of great stuff!  Take a look:

"I love walking up here!"
"I wonder if there are more squirrels up ahead?"

There weren't any squirrels up ahead, but there was this:

"What does 'nononoCACTUSnonono' mean?"
"Whew!  You MUST listen to Mom on that one, Maggie!"

It's something called a cactus.  See where I am in the photo above?  That's as close as I was able to get.  I went to stick my snooter in there and before Mom could pull me back and say "nononoCACTUSnonono!", Cammie jumped in front of me and nudged me away.  I have no idea why Cam did that, but Mom hugged her and told her she was the bestest surrogate mama I could ever hope for.  She even got a cookie when we got home.  I did, too, and kisses on my nose.  I'm still not sure what the big deal was - but I'm 100% in favor of hugs and cookies and kisses!

Anyway ... guess what else we found on our walk this morning!?!?  Take a look:

"A BOX!!!"
"Oh, now this is very interesting!!!"

It was right where most people have little gardens, so Cam figured these people must grow them there!  I've GOT to get Mom and Dad to grow boxes for us!!!  That would be so awesome!

Speaking of growing things and awesomeness ... some friends of Dad and Mom's grew some lettuces and spinach and they gave us some!  Well, they gave some to Mom and Dad ... but we got to try some!

"Oooh!  Let us rejoice!"
"No, that's spinach, not lettuce, Mags!"

Ha roo roo roo!  Good one, Cam!

Anyway, those are some serene highlights from the week.  Is everyone feeling nice and mellow now?

"Can you hit the lights on your way out, please?"

Sure looks like it did the trick for Cammie!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. We just HOPE that those GIANT STRAWS are NOT for Giant Squirrels that live in the land of 87 thousand squirrels... THOSE would be HUGE Squirrels and prolly NOT safe to chase.

    We like how that sidewalk went OUT around the tree that way.

    WE never thought of planting BOXES either .... wouldn't that be a super duper .... we could grow Chewy.com Boxes.... FULL OF TREATS.

  2. Wow can you post us some of those squirrels? Plastic straws??? Do you live with giants LOL. BOL Frankie has it right about boxes and treats. Have a serene and easy Sunday now.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Surely this is a site well worth seeing.

  4. I'm feeling so totally serene now. I can't believe you found giant straws AND a box garden!! OMD. And that Cammie sure was looking out for you.

  5. A garden where they grow boxes could possibly be the most amazing garden ever. I obviously need a box plant right now.

  6. Just don't touch those cactus. They pinch
    Lily & Edward

  7. Monty and Harlow will tell you all about how horrible cactus are! You were wise not to get any closer!

    Monty and Harlow

  8. We're glad you didn't touch the cactus because that would hurt. They sure are pretty!
    We love both lettuce and spinach. They're good for you!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  9. Yep you did the trick, I am all serene. Awwwww. Yep that is the sound of a serene Goose makes.

  10. Thanks for that beautiful journey and I do feel very calm right now. I think I will..yaaaaawn..take a nap.

    Loveys Sasha

  11. You always have the nicest walkies!

    Your pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  12. Cammie is such a great sister and teacher! I am still amazed at how much you two like your vegetables : )

  13. Happy Monday to you! I always love your walks; you are having nice weather, so hope it continues. We are very cold today and it has started to snow-more time for Hunter to nap and for me to sew.
    Enjoy your day.
    Wags, Noreen & Hunter

  14. Isn't crazy squirrel season great?! It is our favorite time of year, well, except for WINTER!
