Here it is the first of October and PJ’s challenge for September was It’s Your World. Most of September was getting ready for a much-needed vacay for Entrepreneur and me so I planned to include a trip to Mexico as part of my world this month. But, we were exposed to Covid two days before our flight and that sort of rocked our world. We had to cancel our flights and reservations at the last minute and self-quarantine until we could get tested so…….my world went very, unexpectedly, upside down this month.
My little corner of the world is preparing for Autumn and not a minute too soon. I’m ready for fall everything. We’re spending time outside and the windows stay open day and night until night temps dip into the 40F.
It’s Your World 1
In my world, we tie dye outside when time/weather permits. Peanut and Twix love everything tie dye. I think we’re getting pretty good at it.
It’s Your World 2
In my world, there is always a fur baby of some sort. Y’all know Cabo….the 4 1/2 year old doodle dog; my therapist and confidant. My other fur baby is Bridget, the kitty who, at 16+ years old, prefers to keep to herself….especially when Cabo is inside. She comes to cuddle late in the evening when everyone else is sleeping.
It’s Your World 3
Along with fur babies there are grandbabykins in my world….who aren’t so babykin anymore. September brings two birthdays. This September Peanut officially morphed into a teenager and Entrepreneur celebrated another year, post cancer diagnosis…although it was in quarantine (Twix was with us in quarantine).
It’s Your World 4
I share my world with a host of creepy crawlies, animals and other residents of the natural world. This walking stick appears every now and then. I also have skinks, dragon/damsel flies, praying mantis, frogs, toads, and an assortment of spiders, butterflies and other insects. We also have squirrels, bunnies, fox, owls, hawks, wild turkeys and deer that wander in and out of the yard. Plus, the occasional snake. Sometimes we can hear coyotes in the distance.

Walking in my world gives me an opportunity to capture some of the beautiful wildflowers growing in and around the untamed areas of the neighborhood. The daisies, milkweed, chicory and honeysuckle are finished, and now the goldenrod and thistle are showing off their colors.

We rescue hurt animals in my world. If you missed my previous post, this is Romeo. He’s a juvenile ruby throat hummingbird who I rescued out of the garden because he couldn’t fly. He had some head trauma because he wouldn’t self-feed. We think he may have gotten into a tussle with another bird that caused him to end up on the ground. He is rehabbing in a wild bird rehab center in St. Louis. The director of the center texts me picture of his progress from time to time. He seems to be doing better.
That’s a little glimpse of my world. Please visit PJ’s page to see other parts of our bloggy world!
