Heading Out


Here in these rural parts of SoCal, it's always exciting to see a winter storm heading out towards the mountains, displaying a beautiful cloud cover, moving rapidly for Arizona and other parts eastward. I love these huge white clouds with a touch of gray displaying a cold, winter's day. How is it where you are? Photo for Skywatch Friday.


Andi's Scary School Days



Book Description

In book four, Andi didn't think she was afraid of anything-until now. School means being away from the ranch, away from her family, and away from Taffy. And sitting next to a boy who throws things at her. Having to stand in the corner for something that wasn't even her fault is the last straw.

LadyD Books is participating in the following book meme. Hope you'll join us and discover what other book lovers are reading. I thought I'd read one more chapter book this week to share with you.

The Friday 56

"Then Andi looked at Pickles. "Poor lizard. You look squished. But if I let you go, a wagon or a horse might run over you... then you'd really be squished."
          -- Susan K. Marlow

Andi's Scary School Days (Circle C Beginnings No. 4)

coyote on the ranch

After the rains, we usually see a fairly large coyote and sometimes its mate roaming around the ranch, especially looking for food in our fruit orchard or an occasional bunny. Do you have them in your parts of the country? They usually run away when they see us coming! I was inside the house when I spotted this one and took its picture through the window.
