It all started when we went outside before dusk last night to do a final “trouble check” of the day, as I like to call it.
It’s where the hubby and I wander the property to check on things in general; to see what needs watered or to pick up stray twigs or pieces of trash that have blown in, maybe chase a stray dog away, etc. and, of course, maybe get some snaps of the wildflowers and other lovelies we’ve been nurturing to share here on my blog.
Like this one:
I love that dandelion photo-bomb there (did you notice it?) but looking back, it was a harbinger of things to come.
In fact, the very next shot I took was then photobombed by my brat of a cat who rather enjoys the attention he gets from getting into trouble, both indoors and out:
He is such a little booger! I shooed him off but before I knew it he was back at it:
His name is Willis but it should have been Trouble!
The real trouble started though with our little apple tree on the side yard near where the chicken coop is. It has barely grown an inch in the three years since we planted it but this year it finally got not one, but TWO (!) apples on it.
His and hers apples.
Needless to say, we were pretty excited. Up until last night, that is. Imagine our horror when during our TC rounds I found one apple completely shriveled and the other one half eaten!
It was probably the cat! I wouldn’t put it past him. He’s trouble.
Seriously though, sometimes I really regret trouble checking. Of course, had I just trouble checked sooner…
