Strange Encounter--and a happy ending!

Yesterday late afternoon I happened to look out the back door onto the patio & saw this bird curled up near the stairs.  I called to Alan & went out, knowing that our cat was out there--not knowing if he had done something to this bird ( a woodpecker as you will   see ).  He ( the cat) was a big hunter in his prime, but way past that now!


The woodpecker seemed a little stunned --we think it flew into the patio door ( large glass door) and was getting it's feet back under it.

After a few minutes , we were happy to see  it stand up & fly away!

Monochrome Monday

The sun was out & it was fairly warm ( low 50s ) and the cat wanted to be outside!  He loves to lay down on the warm slate tiles & soak up the sun!
This is our 24 yr. old, Tuck.

New Bakery on the Block--Rooster On the Go

Last year these buildings were just being built so it was a surprise to see them all finished when we arrived in January.--and all occupied!

The bakery is part of Roosters on Hidalgo, there is also a nail salon, Frida and a couple of other places.  All of this is across from Hortencia's, near Poc-Na.

I went in right after Barlito's had closed for a month--these cinnamon rolls were good, but not as good as Barlito's.  The cookies were amazing!

Usually they had chocolate chip & oatmeal raisin & they were huge!

Different kinds of muffins --one time I bought blueberry muffins & they had peanut butter in the middle!

Banana Bread...

Piroshkis--they are a stuffed bread--we tried one stuffed with hamburg & cheese--delicious & one was enough for us to split.

It's nice to have something like this over in the area where we stay --I tried a variety of their offerings and liked all that I had!  Yummy smoothies too!

At Least Someone is Enjoying the Snow!

 We have a few chipmunks that live in our stone wall & under our back steps.  This morning they were out playing all over on the patio!
 So I got my camera & took some photos!  ( what a surprise!)
 They zipped around very quickly--would have liked to have shot some video but they were too fast!


 How's this for a pose?
