Week in Review & Pretty Pintastic Party #150

PPP Features 150

TGIF! I hope everyone had an amazing week and is ready for the weekend! We’re back with another weekly Pretty Pintastic Party, but first let’s sneak a peek of the week – in the rearview mirror of This Scattered Life.

It may be Spring, but it definitely looks like Winter in our Rocky Mountain hideaway in the National Forest. The weather has been playing havoc on my connection with the outside world. Both my cell phone and landline are tied to our Internet service …and they all go out in solidarity. But only when I’m on or about to get on an important meeting or have a deadline.

Such are the payoffs for living in a remote, magnificent area. I watched “my” fox saunter up the same path (that I can see from both my kitchen and my bed). What a beautiful animal – and especially with the snowy background. But alas, I never spot him in time to capture the moment on camera.

Whereas the fox gives me an inexplicable sense of peace, our other visitor stirred up all sorts of emotions. We were all watching Netflix in the living room, when we heard a noise on the deck. Somehow a black bear had helped himself to our recyclables a mere 20 feet away without us hearing him. (I’m not sure why I assume both are male). The noise we heard was the container falling over and glass bottles hitting the deck.

He was gone within seconds. Leaving behind his massive footprints in the snow and a few photos on the trail cam. The recyclables have now joined the garbage in the garage. Close (enough) bear encounters are more than enough excitement for me. I don’t have any desire to cross paths with the mountain lion that has been spotted in the area.
