  • One Day at a Time

    Evelyn 'E.T.' Trevathan|Jun 20, 2024

    Well it is a warm and almost hot, sunny morning here in our little valley. It has already been feeling like summertime. Here on our front porch there is always a little cool breeze blowing and during the hot Summer months it is comfortable out here in the mornings. The cats ate their breakfast early this morning and have now gone off to find themselves a cool place to nap for the day. Sometimes it is like they eat, drink and disappear. Bob always keeps fresh water set out for the cats. When it is hot like this or dry, animals need more water,...

    Well it is a beautiful morning here in our little valley. It is a perfect morning for sitting on the front porch and having coffee. The cats are enjoying the morning too. They had their breakfast and are now taking a nap. Yesterday Bobby filled up the bird feeders and this morning the birds are busy and happy also. There are a couple of squirrels under the old apple tree in the yard, they are enjoying the apples that have fallen off the tree. They are carrying some of the apples down near the creek, I guess they are beginning to stock up for Wi...

    Well it is a cool and rainy morning here in our little valley. We do need this rain but it is too cool to sit on the porch. The cats were not in a hurry for their breakfast, they are sleeping in this morning. When the sun is shining and it is warm out, then they are sitting at the door waiting for breakfast. Last week was a good week, we worked outside and got a lot done. We got our yard mowed, it is growing so fast with all this rain. I have heard several people say their gardens are doing good. Pam and Rick got some squash and green onions...

    Well it is a damp and cool morning here in our little valley. We had some thunder and rain here this morning before daylight. Now it looks like it is going to be a beautiful day. The sun is beginning to shine and it is getting warm, it is going to be another hot and muggy day. This has really been some unusual weather this Spring, I am wondering what Summer is going to be like. The cats are here and ready for their breakfast. They are always here about the same time every day, maybe they can tell time, Bobby says they have little Mickey Mouse...

    Well it is a cool and cloudy morning here in our little valley. A light rain is falling and it is a little too damp to sit on the front porch. Even with the rain the cats were up and waiting on breakfast, but now that they have finished they have snuggled back down for a nap until the rain is over. Bob has finished washing the breakfast dishes and he is now enjoying his coffee. We sure have been having some unusual weather lately, lots of rain and a lot of hail. I can not ever remember times being like this, but everything is changing and I...

    Well it is a nice cool morning here in our little valley. Last night we heard rumbles of thunder and got a shower of rain. This morning everything is wet, but the grass is green and the flowers are blooming, everything liked the rain. The cats were up early this morning for their breakfast. They sure like this nice warmer weather, after they eat breakfast they find themselves a cool spot, usually on the porch and take naps for most of the day, unless they see us outside then they want us to pet them or go for a walk with them. This has been ano...

    Well it sure is a quiet and peaceful morning here in our little valley. There is a little cool breeze blowing and there is a few clouds, but the sun is shining. I am sitting out on the front porch and I have a small blanket and my coffee with me. The cats were here earlier and ate their breakfast, now that they are full they have gone to take their morning nap. Bob is finishing washing the breakfast dishes and then he will join me on the porch with his coffee. I think the weather is supposed to be nice and warm for the next few days The...

    Well it is a beautiful morning here in our little valley. It was a little cool on the front porch at 46 degrees but we have been getting a little rain, but now the sun is out and shining. The cats were ready for their breakfast, they ate and have now gone to take a nap. Bob is washing the breakfast dishes and making the kitchen spotless. In a few minutes we will have our coffee but we will probably not sit out on the porch because it is a little too cool this morning. For breakfast I made a big pan of cathead biscuits and some brown country...

    Well it is a cool Spring morning here in our little valley, the sky is blue, the sun is shining, everything is greening out and some of the bigger flowers are blooming out. The days are getting warmer and longer, soon we will start having some real warm springtime weather, and I am ready for it. Springtime is good, but when it gets to be Summer and we start having hot days, I will be complaining about it being too hot. The cats were not in a hurry for their breakfast this morning. They all three slept late this morning, but they eventually got...

    Evelyn 'E.T.' Trevathan|Apr 10, 2024

    Well it is a cool morning here in our little valley, the sun is shining and the wind is getting up. We recently had a little more frost, one time it was 31 degrees here on the porch. On those cold mornings the cats stayed in their beds, all three of them were snuggled together, but when the sun began to shine on the porch, they got up and they were ready for their breakfast and for some warm milk. Someone asked me the other day who spoiled the cats, was it me or Bob? Well it was Bob, he can go outside and if they hear his voice then they come...

    Well it is a beautiful morning here in our little valley. It was cool here but we did not have any frost, there for a few mornings we did have a little frost on the roofs. We can still have some very cool mornings and a little frost, but after April 15th it should be warm until Fall. The cats were up and waiting for their breakfast. When it is really cold or storming they do not want to get up early. But today the sun is shining and the birds are singing, so the cats were up and ready for their day. When I went out to feed the cats, I heard som...

    Well it is a cool morning here in our little valley. We had some rain last night but today the sky is blue and the sun is shining. This weather sure is unpredictable, it can change quickly. The cats were here early this morning and ready for their breakfast. The wind is blowing pretty hard and they do not like it, but they are more hungry than scared. Bob is washing the breakfast dishes and he will soon have my kitchen spotless. It sure is nice to have a good dishwasher, I think I will keep him. We have had another busy week. We did some more...

    Well it is a cool morning here in our little valley. The weather is trying to change and warm up, they have been forecasting rain with fog and sunshine with frost, but thankfully no more snow and ice until next Winter. The cats were here early for breakfast They do not like this high March wind, when things start blowing around they get spooked. They ate breakfast and then went and got back in their beds to take a catnap until the wind dies down.

    Well it is a quiet and peaceful morning here in our little valley. It seems like these days are quickly getting warmer, but this last Friday it was cool enough that we had a little fire in the old wood heating stove. The cats were here early this morning for their breakfast, they ate and then got back into their beds for a morning cat nap, they have a rough life. Bob is washing our breakfast dishes, and I am having my coffee and just enjoying this morning. You have to enjoy the good moments when you can, soon I will have to get busy because we...

    Well all these cold fronts that we have been having lately, they all have been coming in fast, it seems like it is warm one minute and freezing the next minute. The temperature sure changes in a hurry, it was almost 70 degrees here on the front porch and it dropped down to 38 degrees in no time at all. This weather warms up then it turans cold again, but of course we are still in Winter. It has been being cold in the mornings and the cats have been really hungry, it does not take them long to drink their bowl of warm milk and clean their...

    Well we have been getting some much needed rain here in our little valley, they are calling for clearer and sunny weather, but I think I heard that they are still calling for a day or two of a little snow, but it still is wintertime. The cats were here early this morning for their breakfast and the birds were at the bird feeders. I think everyone was hungry. The rain we got was good because they said we were in a drought area. There was a lot of water flowing in our creek and the water was washing all the debris out and there was also water...

    Well it is a cold winter morning here in our little valley. The sun is shining and there is no wind blowing right now. The wind sure has been blowing over the last few days, I can not remember us ever having wind this high for this many days. The wind has been so cold and high, you can not stand to be out in it for long at a time. I know we always have a lot of wind in March, but never this bad and in January. With all this winter weather forecasted I have got my bread and milk, I do not know why when there is a forecast for any kind of bad...

    Well it is a cold and cloudy wintry morning here in our little valley. It looks like it could snow but I have not seen any yet. The house is good and warm and I have got a cup of hot coffee and it sure is good. The cats have had their bowl of warm milk, I gave them a plate of warm food and they quickly ate all of it up, they sure were hungry. All the cats have now gone and gotten back into their warm beds. Someone the other day ask me if the cats were spoiled, and I said well maybe a little! It is all Bob’s fault, but I can not say much a...

    Well it is a warmer than usual morning here in our little valley, we did get a little rain but now the sun is trying to shine through the clouds, but I think we might get some more rain. The cats came up early this morning for breakfast and they were really hungry. They have now finished their breakfast and have gone off to take their naps until it is time to get up and play or time to eat supper. The other day Bobby put some bird feed in the feeders in the backyard, and this morning around the feeders there were a lot of pretty red Cardinals...

    Well it is a cool morning here in our little valley, it has not been real bad cold yet this winter, but I think next week a front is suppose to come through and then it is going to turn colder, hopefully by Christmas day it will really feel like winter. The cats were already up this morning and here for their breakfast, but they do not like these colder days, they ate in a hurry and went back to their beds. I have got my Christmas tree lights on and my Christmas music playing and I have got a cup of hot coffee, it sure is a nice morning. We do...

    Well it is a cool morning here in our little valley. We got that much needed rain, now it is really beginning to feel like Fall. Almost all the leaves are gone off the trees here in our yard. The cats were really hungry this morning and they got their bowl of warm milk and now they are really enjoying the warm sunshine. We had to have a little heat on this morning, but we did not build a fire in the old wood heating stove.

    Well it is a beautiful, but cold morning here in our little valley, the sun is shining and the sky is blue. The leaves are still falling off the trees but the leaves that are still on the trees are pretty colors. The cats have had their breakfast and they also had a bowl of warm milk, they are now out in the yard and playing in the leaves, I think they are playing hide and seek, they are just like little kids. These cold nights when the cats go to bed, I warm their blankets for them, that was Bob’s idea and they love it, and on these cold m...

    Well it is a beautiful Fall morning here in our little valley, the trees are beautiful but a lot of the leaves have fallen off and are covering the ground, it is a little cool but this morning I went for a short walk. It sure is a quiet and peaceful morning, the neighbor’s cows are grazing in their pasture. The cats finished their breakfast and they went with me this morning for our walk. We usually walk in the late afternoons or early evenings and the cats always go walking with us then, but it was such a beautiful morning, I really enjoyed o...
