Signs of Fall in August at The Lazy Vegan

With my sweet Boulder. I forgive him for walking me up at 3 a.m. sometimes!!
Another week has passed with the animal crew! No emergency visits to the vet or anything like that...so I would consider it a mellow week (although I'm still up at the crack of dawn tending to the cat or one of the dogs, etc.!). The evenings have been super cool and the oak trees are dropping acorns like crazy...you would think that Fall had arrived! The lizards are out everywhere - I think they're trying to soak up as much sun as possible before the season ends. This weekend was the annual Sonoma County Airshow. We got our own little show as the huge military jets and some of the small bi-planes flew by...we are actually on one of the flight paths! I saw three planes fly over our house in formation. Pretty cool. Even the donkeys looked up for that event!

You wouldn't really know from these photos, but Wasabi DETESTS being held. Absolutely hates it. So we have to be very quick with the photos. Once we put her down, she'll hop off in a huff!

I love her back feet - HUGE! Lately one of her favorite things to do is to hop quickly over the foreman when he sits on the couch for a pet. We call it the "hop-to-pop" game!

She senses that something's up. She absolutely knows when it is time to do what we call the "transfer" (we have to have a name for everything around here. That's part of the fun!)...when we take her from her "kitchen playground" upstairs to her "bunny apartment"!

This face means she's on to us.

The donkeys stop to check in with one another. Of course, they do this hundreds of times during the day!

This little lizard saw me coming and quickly found some cover.

Toby has perfected this woe-is-me-nobody-will-toss-my-ball look.

A cute vintage Beetle I saw when I met Snap in Graton!

Karina stopped by to see us at the office.

Toby loves this ridiculous stuffed bone that I had bought for the canine patient over a month ago. He'll bring it and set it outside Wasabi's gate. The funny thing is that she seems interested in playing!

Of all the places in the kitchen that she could hang out in, Wasabi loves to pick the one closest to where the dogs are.

Relaxing in one of her many boxes.

It is a good idea to lounge next to the litterbox. You never know when you have to go!

Paco stirs up some dust.

HERE'S some exciting news: CONGRATULATIONS to Nick...he is now the proud owner of his own coffee shop! We visited him early in the week and will be back as often as we can. Even though I don't drink coffee, I can order tea!

Getting a tour.

He's the perfect person for this ...friendly and enthusiastic!

Wasabi plots her revenge for being held so much. Maybe some extra loud thumps!

Enjoying some evening breezes out on her private balcony. Everything upstairs now belongs to Wasabi. Except for the bathroom...that is off limits.
Boulder likes to go up and down the driveway. Silly cat!

I love how the lizards will turn their head when I take a photo. I think they're listening to the funny noises the camera makes.

Paco and the foreman.

Handsome Luigi!

Remember those baby turkeys I blogged about a few months ago? Here they are looking for a morning snack - quite a bit bigger!

I confess that sometimes I go back to sleep in the morning...especially on the days when I'm up at 3 a.m.! The foreman snapped this one morning. What a crew! Solo likes his own bed. I think he's smart!
