Daisy, Annie, bears

Trying to think of a clever post. We've had pouring rain all day.
She has both feet on my foot!
One must look back!

Thankfully, we had great weather Monday, and Daisy and I had a moment in the back yard! Hubby came home after groceries and Daisy didn't budge. She had two paws on my foot! He came over and fetched the camera.

Buster has been evil, chasing his sisters and we are trying to figure out what to do. Some become aggressive around age 3 or 4.

I spent some time organizing, after my morning blog, reading the paper and working out.
I cleaned out the linen cupboard. I've been avoiding it. There is no end to the excitement around here!

 Night time has been quiet, too. Annabelle admires herself on the computer. She was watching the horses on TV, then the ball game, while Daisy sleeps at my feet, her paws rest on my shoulder. I was showing Annabelle her photos.

You can see how hubby is getting better at taking photos!
Annie likes TV and movies!

I think the geese, we saw hundreds of them in Carleton Place, must be confused. We were in Carleton Place, and they were taking flight.

Yesterday was 8 C., and this morning, what with the storm, formerly-known-as-Patricia, hauling some balmy temperatures to us in the north, this morning was a balmy 15 C. and humid.

On a trip to Carleton Place, you can
see the geese in flight. They are restless!

My iMovie won't work properly. I'm not finding great videos on the Trailcam, but our trips around the county have been fun. I'm endlessly frustrated. It's a lack of 'working memory' issue. I dumped a bunch of files. Saved in the cloud. I came across these videos.
The first is from June, from the Trailcam. The second was from May, a couple of years ago.

My trailcam is set up down the hill, in the meadow. There has been some action! It seemed to go in circles!

This is from TWO YEARS AGO! Where does the time go?

We had just sat down to dinner. I'm glad all of the cats were in, as they tend to charge the deer and chase the turkeys. I don't know WHAT they would do if they saw a bear. Buster was in the Muskoka room watching.

It sure poured of rain all day. We still made the trek to the swimming pool to watch the grandkids and their swimming lessons in the evening. It's just as dull and dreary this morning. A great time to get some inside jobs done.

My parents would always stop feeding the birds when it was time for the bears to wake up.

They once mentioned the cats being inside while a bear was passing through the property. Both cats were on windowsills staring out at the bear, their bodies completely tense and alert.

Ah yes, the indoor organizing. It's been on my to-do list for decades. Each morning I vow to get started on it. Each evening it remains untouched. Tomorrow for sure!!!

Oh my gosh, I would be so excited to see that bear. But I would certainly want to be sure the cats were in. Your kitties do each have their own inimitable personalities! It's fun to heat about them.
Don't overdo on that linen closet chore ... Too much of that kind of excitement isn't good for you! (Believe me I know ... Thats the kind of crap I've been doing way way too much of lately.) ;)))

Bears have been a problem this year it seems. I just read in our paper that almost thirty have been put down this year. What brand of trail cam do you have? I'm asking Santa for one. - Margy

We do not see many bears in my neighborhood although they have been reported being seen along with the mountain lions. I love the bear videos, very cool. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Halloween, enjoy your weekend
