Weekend Roundup “Q”

Starts with “Q.”

A Favorite. 

A “Q”uantity.

Starts with Q: Quail in our back acreage.

A Favorite: I decided to choose a Quote for my favorite since we are on Q.

“Man is more himself, man is more manlike, when joy is the fundamental thing in him, and grief the superficial. Melancholy should be an innocent interlude, a tender and fugitive frame of mind; praise should be the permanent pulsation of the soul. Pessimism is at best an emotional half-holiday; joy is the uproarious labor by which all things live.” ~ G.K. Chesterton

Photo: Me having joy in my labors with my new riding lawn mower. We have just under 5 acres to keep under control. Adding a new closeup showing my noise protection on my ears!

A “Q”uantity:

How about a quantity of quail? How many do you see?

A parting shot:

I’m calling our new home Our Country Bungalow. I might add to it and call it Our Country Bungalow at Quail Run.

  1. Are the red bird pair quails? I got five on my smart phone without them. I am glad for you guys having a riding lawnmower. The pond is looking nice.

    • Good eye, Jim. You even saw the garden art! They are definitely red birds that I don’t think we even have in this corner of our world.

    • Tom, I do have ear protection on but it just blended in with my hair. I’ll show another angle in the future with them showing better. 🙂

  2. Wonderful “Q” photos, Ellen! You are so lucky to have so many quails around your home, they are so beautiful. I have to travel far to see them, my son and his family live in Arizona, and that’s where we see quail! I used to live there, too…for about 15 years! I would never think to use “quote” for this week, that’s awesome! Maybe someday when I have some “extra” time, I will check out some of your other quotes.
    Have a good week, Ellen!

  3. I love that you have a bungalow now too! Love your new mower. You will no doubt have a passenger very soon.

  4. I’m the lawn mower in our family too and have had fun driving my zero turn mower around. Not anymore though, no lawn at all at the new house, just woods.
    You look right at home on the mower!! : )

  5. Quail Country Bungalow?
    As you can tell, I’m on the lap top this evening so thought that I would pop in and leave a comment. I read all posts and so seldom comment. That’s just not right.
    Addy is the little girl of many expressions. I can tell that she’s a delight all the way around. A new baby brother will be such a blessing to her. She’ll be a wonderful big sister.
