Saw my therapist today...

She told me not to worry because everything is going to be fine.

She's very convincing.

We have had some rain and it's clouding up this afternoon, but this morning was beautiful.

And everyone enjoyed it.

Aurora wonders if you'd like some hay...

Are you SURE?

Firefly is sure enjoying hers...

Puffin is not a sharer. She may be small, but it takes a lot of food to keep this little girl happy.

Guess who has peach fuzz? Ellie is already growing fresh hair over her bald patches where her urine scald was. She's got a nice soft lovely covering of new hair coming in. It makes me a very happy woman.

Puffin: uh excuse me, this is my hay...

Aurora: We'll let you stay, but we are not sure what you are exactly...

Max is busy keeping an eye on the little girls, I trust him, he doesn't let them out of his sight.

Most of our leaves have dropped, but the Hickory are still holding most of their leaves....

It's starting to look pretty bare in the forest though...  but it does help with being able to spot more critters...

All was quiet down at the creek...

Except for all the frogs, they were really on the move today...

It's hard to believe it's already Mid- October. Tomorrow it will be 3 months since my surgery. I still have a lot of bad days, and there is still pain. But I've come a very long way and I'm grateful for that.

Our deer company is much different this year than any other. We have seen no bucks and absolutely no fawns. We've never had a year like this and it's quite alarming. We have trail cameras set up in all our usual places for this time of year and we have seen no one. 

I'm glad we've had at least one visitor, but he's been here all summer.

He's in good shape and it makes us glad to see it. We've seen a few does, and none of them have fawns... It's going to be an interesting winter. Hopefully the deer are there and just not following their usual patterns, so we are just not seeing them.

Oh how I enjoy your posts with the beautiful animals you own, warms my the deer pictures, I adore them so, wonder why no fawns, hope they stay safe.......Take Care, Francine.
Now that's what I call therapy! That would definitely do you good. I don't know how you couldn't be happy while cuddling with those sweeties!

You DO have the bestest therapist!! Too adorable!! It's wonderful to see you out and about more. Crazy that it has taken so long, but at least you have having more "better days!"

You have the cutest therapist ever. I love the picture with the three goat girls and Ellie. You are such an amazing person to take in a creature needing help when your yourself are healing. The world needs more people like you.

It is like turning the pages of a storybook to read this post. Hollywood could not do a better job of filming. And to think, it's all real!

You're getting such good medicine!

Puffin Therapy, I hear it's the BEST.

I would be worried about the deer, too... and wondering what is going on.
Your photos always, always, ALWAYS bring a smile to my face. I sincerely hope you are having more good days than bad. :)

Love all the pictures, as usual. Are people allowed to hunt on your land? My sister has some land in NC and they trespass on it and was just wondering. They have even gone as far as to 'log' the trees!!! Unbelievable to me how people could do that.
I hope all the deer are just resting up and safe.
Puffin, she is the best little girl!
Glad bunny's bum is so much better.

Could be the deer are all being nocturnal.
