We used to see flocks of quail in our back yard all the time, but this year they’ve been very scarce. Last night I happened to catch this couple, a male and female, cruising quickly through the back yard. They come through our yard, up alongside our house to the front, where they check for traffic in the cul-de-sac before scurrying across to the neighbor’s front yard. We’ve watched them picking and scratching at the dirt, wondering that there’s anything at all to eat there. But obviously, there’s enough to bring them back, over and over again. Cool to watch.

It’s drizzly, cold and damp today. An excellent day for hunkering down and reading a good book or catching a nap on the couch. Life moves on … flowing day by day.

Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Take care of yourself–know that there are people who care about you. You are where you should be in this life. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.


About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons, a daughter-in-law, and two grandsons. My hobbies include creating art with fabric (quilting and sewing) and paper (cardmaking), reading, writing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in our G scale garden railroad), travel and volunteering. I owned a secretarial and desktop publishing business years ago and was a professional proofreader. I closed my business in 1999 when my husband retired, but I continue to enjoy proofreading and editing for e-authors. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.
