We did not get the snow that was in the forecast for last weekend. Instead we got some much needed rain and yet, it was still too cold to go for walks. I kept myself busy with projects instead of walking.
Monday turned into a gorgeous day plus the Preserve was closed so Dan and I went for a walk. When we left, the House Finches were busy eating up all the birdseed...
Oh, and our new neighbor was resting near a game trail near the Preserve's Railroad trail. How Dan spotted him..I have no idea. I often look along this trail for deer, but I did not see the mountain lion. We are suppose to haze him, but he probably did not realize that ol' eagle-eye Dan had spotted him. We took some photos and decided to leave the sleepy cat alone since he looked like he just wanted to take a catnap.
One visitor told me that it wasn't unusual for a mountain lion to be sitting near trails and watching unsuspecting humans. They blend in so well with the background. Now, I give myself whiplash on my walks while looking for the lion and I still did not see him.
On the Cutting Board
I have been spending quite a bit of time in the evening working on my granddaughter's quilt. I would really like to finish it soon. I have been hand-quilting this one for too many years. It's time to get it done!
And in between hand-quilting, I got the machine-quilting done on this quilt. I still need to make the binding. I might use some pastel scraps for a multi-colored binding.

She's almost done, so I should have a photo of a finished project for the next posting.
