Sat.`s critters/ the misadventures of Hope the hamster

Linking up with Eileen herehttp://viewingnaturewitheileen.blogspot.com/ 
Travelling the backroads in Aug.with my friend,Cathleen, & my granddaughter,Savannah, we discovered many items to be thrown away from yard sales we were too late to go to, of course Cathleen said Savannah must have a hamster cage sitting out for trash. After church the next day we were at Petsmart getting the hamster she named Hope.
Well,there was a reason it was sitting out to be trashed, it fell apart while we were cleaning it & we couldn`t figure out how to put it back together. I had an extra cage in the shed, so she went in it. 
She was fine & had a little ball she could roll around in too, it was scotch taped closed though...things were going so well her mom allowed her to take it home. Mon.after school I get this phone call from Savannah that Hope had escaped from the cage.She was crying so hard I could barely tell what she was saying.They live in a townhouse with 3 floors. I got her calmed down & told her she was most likely in her room somewhere,well they did find her under her bed. They put her back in the cage & she promptly escaped right before their eyes, so that night she rolled in her ball all around Savannah`s room stressing her out so Savannah couldn`t sleep.
I recieved her back the next day,so I took the measurements & went to walmart & bought a tote to set the cage down inside. It was tight so I knew she couldn`t get out but she still had her wheel hooked to the cage to play on.
Well, don`t you know I went to check on the creature later, & she was wedged so tight in the bars of the cage & against that tote where she had been escaping from that I thought she was dead. I carefully took her out, she was not dead but I am glad that I checked on her when I did.The bars were embeded spots in her skin.Slowly over the next several days the bar marks went away & I am happy to report she is fine & healthy .She lives in the tote now with a new stand up wheel to run on which I listen to at night when I can`t sleep,squeek...squeek...

Not over yet

Google chrome seems to be down, facebook has been in & out...I wonder if our blogs still get put over on facebook , mine hasn`t yet today.


I did not go out & shovel myself out the front, just down where the dogs go out. I`m waiting on a friend to plow me out, then I`ll do it tomorrow. This is how much more I`ve gotten since earlier...


I get the craziest cravings, today I had brussel sprouts with bacon ,ate the whole bag of them..

Snow

Such a long time since I`ve written anything, been having trouble with depression, hope 2016 will be a better year for me.

We are in the midst of a snowstorm here in Pa.I took precautions ahead of time like stacking wood indoors & bringing the shovel indoors. I let little Chloe use the puppy pads, poor Simon hates to go out in rain or snow, but I made them all a path & he went out grudgingly like it is my fault it`s snowing.  

I am watching for bluebirds as my neighbor had a pair at her feeder, but so far,none here.

to view all today`s cuties...

I was visiting my friend at her dairy farm & taking pictures of the fall landscapes when her phone rang. She went in the house to answer it, & my attention went to the cows across the road. They were GALLOPING. Skipping, doing happy dances , I had never seen cows do that, so I snapped some pictures. She came running out to get her husband saying, the cows are out of the fence!! We went across the street to corral them back in. The late afternoon light was just amazing over there. Lamar finally had to drive his truck over the pasture & they followed him thinking they were going to be fed. They escaped again around around 2 am I was told...
