The other day my husband and I were driving down the street in a small town, and I saw an opossum trotting down the sidewalk, as happy as a lark. He kind of looked like this. Of course, he wasn’t wearing a bow tie, but I kind of imagined him going to a morning brunch, and so my embellishment seemed appropriate.
Happy Monday, Friends! What’s something interesting you’ve seen outside lately?

Thank you so much, Friend!
I love it! There are simply not enough cute representations of opossums out there! 😀
Thank you so much, Kasey! I agree. Opossums can be so adorable.
How lovely 🙂
So sweet, P!
Last Sunday in the early morning hours I followed a fox down the hill in my Jeep. I imagined it’d stepped out for a breakfast treat. No bowtie … a fox has natural style. – tsk
I love this, Tony! It is so exciting to have encounters like this with little animals.
Thanks, Sam! He was really fun to draw and paint.
Such a cutie ❤️
Thanks, M! You would have loved seeing him.
Oh I bet. I have such a soft spot for animals.
I’ve come across three separate woodchucks just recently. They are really cute too, especially when they try to run fast.
