Footprints …

Dont tell me the sky is the limit when theres footprints on the moon.

It seems rather fitting to end the week with footsteps – after I talked about trying on shoes?  We haven’t been out today to leave our footprints around but we must leave thousands of them every week!

So who do you think had left these footprints in our garden and where do you think they were going so early this morning before we were up and about?

and did all the footprints belong to one ‘person’?

Aha – so this sneaky little ‘person’ found some shelter … the footprints start from the left at the front and go in a loop before exiting on the left towards the back.  The track is leading behind a propped up piece of wood.

But they didn’t stay hidden for long … our little furry friend has hopped all over the garden in the snow – do you think the Easter Bunny got his dates wrong? well I didn’t set off an egg hunt to find out!  In fact this is a wild rabbit who frequents three neighbouring gardens in our row –  and who is apparently being fed by someone on the next road over … who feeds a wild rabbit?   One of my neighbours is well unimpressed – all he can grow in his veggie patch now is tatties … anything else gets munched.

Dog ignores this little chap – it is after all ‘his rabbit’ since it comes in his garden.  So far Pup has been oblivious to it but maybe as Spring progresses we can get him out in he garden giving the rabbit a bit to think about!  Although since a blackbird (female) was quite cheerfully having  a bath in the pond while Pup watched her through the trellis perhaps he too will be an inadequate rabbit deterrent?

I retraced a few footprints later today gong through some photographs and making colour palettes of them (click on the top two images to see licensing information – these may not be copied elsewhere without including that information)


And this one:

So there you go footprints leading down Memory Lane!

Now it is pretty much the end of another week; time to rest in readiness for putting our best foot forward for the journey into next week.  But before I go Pup had a brainwave earlier on – he found a slab of ice outside; he brought it into chew … he could not understand why I thought it a bad idea for him to take it on Dog’s bed to chew it!  Gotta love the cute little guy don’t you?

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
