Housecleaning today, going to town

WELCOME to our new Follower, Jenny!  I don't see a blog for Jenny, but her profile photo is a huge black dog, so Jenny and her Dog are following Me and MY Dog.  Thanks for signing on, Jenny, I hope you enjoy following along with us on our adventures.  Welcome aboard!  :)

Katie and  I walked over to the visitor's Center yesterday to see if they had outgoing mail service, my Dad's birthday is coming up,  and I had to leave Katie outside again.  This time I took her photo.   She's being such a good girl:

Katie waiting.

I was testing out the Panorama setting on my camera, and this is what I got - I think it was three clicks.  Really easy, and it turned out perfectly:

That's a bit of The Palms on the left

 The sunset was really pretty last night:

I love taking photos of little birds.  This guy and his friends were in our site this morning:

This morning I cleaned the house, stripped the bed and got all the laundry together including rugs and the things I don't launder every time.  We stopped at the dump station on the way out of the park and dumped the tanks and filled up with water.

As I was waiting for the fiver ahead of me (how much water do those things hold, anyway - it took forever to fill his water tank! ) I watched this little guy who was up the hill next to me:

Then we went into the town of Springfield to find a Post Office to mail my Dad's birthday card, do the laundry and top off the fridge and food cupboard.

As I was driving around the loop to my campsite, I saw this guy in the field:

 He was munching in the field, and there is a doe on the left

 I watched him for a while, then got back into The Palms and went on to our site.

I put Katie's leash on we headed out for our walk in the direction of the deer.  When we got there, they were done eating and were resting.  Each was on a different side of the field across from each other.   I went to the edge of the field and he casually watched me, but didn't move anything except his head.

 Resting after dinner.

As we continued walking around the loop, I saw these little birds chirping up in a tree - they were all sitting close together, and were just starting to fly away, and I got one in flight - right in the middle.  I liked this photo:

Then we went home - I got some photos of the clouds overhead.


Inside it was nice a warm.  Everything is clean and good smelling.  I got out fixings for dinner and pan fried a filet mignon, made some Spinach Surprise and toasted Italian bread with a nice cheap Cab.  Yum!

It just started raining, and there's a chance we might get some snow tonight. That would be pretty cool - pun intended. :)

From Me and My Dog, have a great Friday night, everyone!  :)
