Bee Creeping on Nature Friday


 Buzzzz....Buzzzz
Oh Hi! I was just sitting here on my back deck communing with my fellow bees! Mama calls me the Bee Creeper.  She thinks I am spying on the buzzers, but the truth is, I really just like to watch them buzzing around the backyard.



Another pawsitive thing about all the humans staying home, at least in our neighborhood, is they are sprucing up their yards and planting more flowers and plants for the bees to pollinate!



Here is a short slow motion video Mama made of a bumble bee in our rhodies!! I think Mama may be the bee creeper!


You can watch it HERE on YouTube!
You may want to biggify it to see it better.





 Rosy Bee ready for takeoff!!

Wishing everyone a BEE-autiful Weekend!!

Look on the Sunny Side!


Arty here today to tell you about a couple of things we are thankful for in the midst of all the craziness. For instance, Jakey and my groomers are closed. Can I hear a WAHOO?!!! So no groomers for us anytime soon!



I am also thankful the guy on the brown suit is still bringing me packages! Of course now Mama is wiping them all down with funny smelling wipes and letting them dry before I can open them, but check out the package I got from him the other day!
Back off Rosy, this  package is for me!!



Rosy kept trying to tell me something and I kept telling her to leave the box alone, it was MINE!

Funny thing is she said I could have it.
She must have finally learned not to argue with me!


 
 Stay tuned next week when Daddy helps me put it together. I can't wait to see what it is!!!


(Mama wants to say a big thank you to Kinley, Finley and Brinley's Mama for letting her know these were available at Chewy.com)

FFF-Nature Friday - My Beach House



Welcome to that wonderful Friday each month where Nature Friday comes together with  YAM Aunty's FFF!! 

Make sure to visit YAM Aunty HERE to get the New Rulez and join the FFF fun!!






My Beach House
by Arty

As I walked along the sea,
I saw a beach house made just for me!
Sand for the floor and sticks for the sides,
there was even a box of cheese crackers inside!

A view of the ocean,
with fishies and sharks,
Maybe we can make a bonfire,
for when it gets dark!

Alas, all my foodies were all left at home,
A pup cannot live on cheese crackers alone!
Some homeward we headed with a memory for me,
I would never forget my beach house by the sea!





 Show us your nature! It can be flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a vacation, walk or other journey! Any kind of nature picture will do! If you don't see a link below, click HERE

Thankful for Family Time

Jakey here today, letting you know how very thankful we are to be healthy and be able to share some quality family time together while we "Shelter in Place"! 

Mama has been busy having us practice "Social Distancing" while she goes from room to room with her paint supplies. I don't know why she doesn't let us help. Many paws make for short work, right?? Oh well, she seems to think many paws make for wet paint on dogs.
Whatever!  

We have also noticed Daddy is home more than usual. Mama says he is working from home(three days a week), but we think he is here mainly to entertain us and take us for lunch time walkies!!




We have been spending some of our #stayhome time catching up on naps.




Some puppies insist on invading each other's personal space!
Move over Arty!!!
My pawrents say they are very thankful that they have us as Quarantine Buddies,
and for their evening entertainment, of course!


Mama made a short video of our antics to share a smile or 2 today!

You can also watch it HERE on YouTube



How are you spending your family time??

Keeping Busy on Happy Tuesday

 
We are entering the second week of staying home and, although Mama spends the mornings painting different rooms in our house, she seems to think we need to "keep busy" during the afternoons. I try to tell her that since Daddy is working from home 3 days a week, he keeps us busy by taking us for lunchtime walkies and we keep him company in the afternoon.! You know, by begging for treats, barking at the neighbor kitties and climbing all over him.

For some reason, Mama thinks maybe she needs to find another way for us to "keep busy" so Daddy can get some work done.



I've seen bunny ears, bunny stuffies and lots of other costume-y stuff appearing downstairs lately. Mama is also saying something about "more photo shoots" and "cheering up people through pictures"

Not sure how this is going to turn out...

BUT

I see lots of treats in my future!!!!



What are you all doing to "keep busy" while you stay home?

Lighthouse by the Sea


Today, since everyone has a bit of extra time,  I thought it would be nice to show you the Point Pinos Lighthouse. We stopped to there to visit last month during my road trip to Carmel!




It was one of the California lighthouses Mama hadn't seen yet, so it was nice to cross it off of the list!



The Point Pinos Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse in California that has stayed in almost continuous use.



It opened in 1855 and was one of the seven original California Lighthouses!



Wowsers, that is even older than Mama!!!



It has only been dark twice. First during the Big San Francisco Earthquake of 1906(it got damaged and needed the lens replaced) and then again during WWII during mandatory black out times!



The lighthouse is located in Pacific Grove, CA (just southwest of Monterey)



 Emily Fish added beautiful landscaping and gardens to the lighthouse while she was Lighthouse keeper from 1896 until 1914.




This lighthouse has a Fresnel Lens (read more here) that is still in operation today under the US Coast Guard Management.





The movie is a bit long, feel free to pop over toYouTube HERE and watch it later!





I hoped you enjoyed learning a bit about the Point Pinos Lighthouse. The only downside to the lighthouse was dogs weren't allowed to visit. This was fine with me(and Daddy) though because I got to go on a nice long walkie along the ocean with Daddy, while Mama puttered around the lighthouse! 


 We are on "Mandatory Shelter In Place" restrictions as of today. Thank Dog one of the exceptions is hiking, so you'll find us out on a trail this weekend. 
 
We sure hope all our friends are healthy and safe and get to find some time to experience your own Nature this weekend!

 Show us your nature! It can be flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a vacation, walk or other journey! Any kind of nature picture will do! If you don't see a link below, click HERE
