Here is my entry for theThe Saturday Photo Hunt - Grin
I did my best, but this is as close to 'grin' as I am going to get, without a lot more practice!!
Have a great weekend everyone! Ours happens to be very windy and rainy as a result of a passing tropical storm. Some participants in this week's Photo Hunt are are also posting "sky" photos. There is way too much rain for a 'today' shot, but here is one from yesterday showing the gathering cloud banks on the horizon.
However, when our human beans were out getting some fresh air they also took this photo.
I thought I would share it!
PS - Several people have asked - this is the pink Lady's Slipper (called 'slipper' because of the shape of the bloom) which grows wild in forested areas in Nova Scotia and does not mind acidic soil. There is also a yellow Lady's Slipper, which grows only in areas where there are limestone deposits (near the gypsum mine for instance) so it is not as common.

Mike says:It's still nice outside this morning so far. Tonight we will get a visit from Tropical Storm Andrea. So by tomorrow morning we should be getting a 'wind and rain event', which means I will plan a nap event, since bird TV will be off.
I think I will rest here a while and then go on a food hunt.
I lay claim to the office/music room, it's cozy and warm in here and I am willing to share this space with my humans.
I have some unsettling news, a different kind of 'storm'. We live near a large harbour and this one has several lighthouses. I was thinking that years ago, perhaps some of my ancestors lived in ones like this with the light keepers. Sadly, some of these lighthouses are in jeopardy.
There is more on this topic here:

First, what's not new - Mike, foreground and Moe, background starting the day off with a good snooze.
What's new? Well these have appeared across our street in the empty lot.
We found out that these are human litterboxes. Our mombean says this can only mean, finally, our street is going to get repaved.
To confirm these suspicions, this big, noisy machine pulled up and parked in front. Oh good, we get to snoopervise the goings on.
Here is that forsythia bush in the above photo, a few days earlier. We can hardly believe our eyes - Spring has finally arrived.
Oh, here comes another noisemaker
Mindy: I wonder if there is anyway to close my ears off from all of this!!
Enjoy Monday everyone (else)!!
