Friday - My Little Bliss List

My Little Bliss List (Remembering the things that made me happy this week, because it's so easy to forget them)

Another week of blissfully beautiful weather.  I love it.  The dogs love it.  I captured this picture of Pamunky and Otis patiently waiting for me to finish taking pictures so we could finish our walk.

Mr. B. is home on leave.  It has been bliss.  I love it.  The animals love it.  (lots of love its this week)  I found Mr. B., Otis and two of our cats napping on the couch... so funny.. I tiptoed away to get the camera and tried to be quiet but the cats were very aware that I was taking pictures... Otis and Mr. B., not so much.

everyone piled up napping
Mr. B., Otis, Sniper and Recon piled up on the couch napping

And.. true bliss..  The mama fox and her three kits, which had moved in under our addtion aka the master bedroom, last week, are gone!  Mr. B. managed to get them to move out, after a few sleepless nights listening to them squabble, play and rustle around under the floor boards.  It sounded like they were right in the room with us.  Pamunky and Otis, of course would bark.  It was chaos and no one was getting any sleep.  Not only that, we had to clean up after them every morning.. they would leave the carcasses (snake, chicken, smaller birds, moles, a rabbit) of what they ate outside by the side of the house.  It's been blissfully quiet for three nights now with no signs of them.  We've been able to get a full night's sleep again.

(the quality of the following pictures isn't the best, I was taking through them a window and screen and the foxes were moving)

  1. Ohhh the animals sleeping on the couch! Adorable!! :)

    1. Aren't they though? I had to get a pic.

  2. Fun to catch a photo of a fox - doesn't happen often in this part of the country. You have your hands full - dogs and cats. I have two cats and they keep me busy enough.

    1. It's hard to photograph the foxes, they move so fast.

  3. Great list Tori! Love bliss that has to do with animals of all kinds :) Glad I found you through Liv's link up - have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks Blair! Hope your weekend is wonderful too.

  4. Nice photos..glad you're getting some rest :)

  5. Snuggly pets on the couch - too cute!!!
    Sadly we have to bait foxes in our area (country NSW, Australia) - they eat all our lambs.
    Yay to a good night's sleep!

  6. Love this list and the great photos. I am so sorry about your visitors and their noise and its kind of cool that they felt safe in your space and you were able to get photos.
