Wordless Wednesday (Breaking Out of the Egg Edition)

A bird has built a nest in our garage (of all places):

Her baby is now with us and growing every day:

My “fledgling” isn’t nearly this helpless anymore.
Today we celebrate her 16th birthday!
Happy birthday, Tenley!
“I’m youth, I’m joy, I’m a little bird that has
broken out of the egg.”

Summer Daze Fun Photo Party

The Summer Daze Photo Party is the creation of Kristi from Live and Love Out Loud, Alicia from Project Alicia, and Rebecca from Bumbles and Light. The rules are pretty lax (it is summer after all!). Feel free to link up your summer images June 15 through July 20. The instructions are here.

Wordless Wednesday (Quarter Moon/LCHS Edition)

I don’t know much about our cat, Alice Cooper’s, life before we adopted her. What I know is that despite the fact she has ruined our carpets, begs incessantly for food, and is quite the diva, our life wouldn’t be the same without her.

This month, Quarter Moon Imports is helping the Leon County Humane Society fulfill its mission of relieving animal suffering, preventing animal cruelty, eliminating overpopulation of animals, promoting humane education, and enhancing the human/animal bond. Here’s how you can get involved:

On June 16:  Bring pet food to the Pet Food Drop Off at Quarter Moon from 10am until 6:00 pm. Pet food will be donated to low income seniors to help them meet the expenses of keeping their loving pets in their homes! 

Through June 21: Post a favorite photo of your pet to this page. The picture that gets the most “likes” will win a $50 gift card to Quarter Moon! If you don’t post a picture, it’s still cool to “like” your favorite – they’re all so entertaining!

On June 21:  Shop and Share at Quarter Moon (1641 N Monroe St, Tallahassee) all day on Thursday June 21st. Mention that you support LCHS and 10% of your purchase will go to LCHS! Enjoy a wine and cheese reception and “after hours” shopping from 6pm-8pm. 

Every Day in June:  Contribute $1 or more at the counter to the Paws for Pets Campaign to let the community know that you love the work of the LCHS! Your name gets printed on a cute paw!

Thank you, Quarter Moon Imports, for having great merchandise and pairing that with a tangible commitment to helping the people (and animals) of our community thrive!

Here are some randomly selected pictures from the pet photo contest:

You can find Alice Cooper, the animals pictured here, and 46 more candidates, via this link.

Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s
soul remains unawakened.
