DIY Headboard Footboard/ Bench

We had this headboard and footboard already it was a queen size.

I wanted to make a swing out of it using as much of the materials as possible including the support boards.

Jack said it would be too heavy for that so we ended up doing a bench instead.

I wanted to leave the headboard as tall as we could for a statement piece.

I love the way this turned out.

This can be done with any headboard and footboard.

Anything we can recycle, repurpose and DIY I love.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone I hope you have your shopping done.

For me, it was easy this year I had everything but a few things shipped to our door.

Photo sessions with Miss Daisy have always been easy but add in Zoee and let the challenge begin lol

I will be posting some of the pics over the next week but I want to try one more time and get a shot I really really LOVE.

Fall color

Our fall color is our cypress trees and I was able to get this picture the other day with nice skies.

This is our largest cypress. This tree stands about 15′ tall. It makes a mess when the leaves all fall off because it is right beside the pond.

The first clean up will be this weekend. I ordered us a mulcher/blower/vacuum with a bag to try out on this.

Enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors the skies, the trees and the breeze in the air.

Mr. Bird

Mr. Bird has been acting strange the last couple of days. He is a neutered male cat that is almost 9 years old. He weighed in at almost 15#’s.

I was stalking him this morning using the litter box and discovered he would go to pee but nothing was coming out. Then he would cry and growl somewhat this is not normal for him.

I took him to the vet this a.m. and he took out a syringe of urine so it would help his pain he has two kinds of stones. They did a urinalysis and a looked at it under the microscope.

Apparently, this is quite common in cats but especially male cats.

He’s taking antibiotics and tomorrow we will try the catheter for a few days and do some blood work but he may end up in surgery tomorrow instead.

He seems very uncomfortable he’s such a laid back cat normally. I have him in his own room so he can rest without puppy intervention. I hate it when something is wrong with one of my animals.

The cat and dog match

Daisy has shared Zoee with Mr. Bird who does not seem to mind the clumsy feet of a boxer puppy.

They stayed like this for at least one hour then Bird got up and laid on top of Zoee.

Its wonderful everyone is getting along so well.

The little moments like this that I get to capture with my camera really make my day.
