Christmas is just around the corner and things here are at a constant hum. The family is going away to Nova Scotia in a few days and they won't be back until Christmas Eve, I am looking forward to having some peaceful naps with The Nanny while the rest are gone!!

I have been doing a lot of thinking the past few weeks on Christmas cards. The PM scoured through our iphoto pages looking for the perfect holiday pic to transform into our card. So this is how it turned out.

Not too bad, but let me tell ya, Banshee rarely walks around surrounded in a golden mist.

It just doesn't ring true to how things really are around the holidays.

So I've taken some time to compile some examples of what I think our card should be.

~Go Wild! Enjoy glitter glue this holiday season.~

~Best Wishes to the "king of the castle"!~

~Jealousy abounds this festive time~

~May you find peace this time of year and a fancy bathing mat.~

~Shake things up this Yule!!~

And my personal favorite...

~Remember to clean your eye this Christmastime!~

What do you think?

I bet the PM will be happy that I have things lined up now for many years to come.

From our home to yours, have a very joyful holiday!!!!!

Joyeux Noël!!!

I've been accused of being a little too relaxed this holiday season.

I say, there is no such thing as too relaxed.

Hope you get some too relaxed time too!!

Now that the weather has taken a turn towards the cooool side, I am allowed out without being tethered to that bone stealing, elbow/knee walk producing hardness!!!!

How exciting is that???

Shade came out with us but headed for the hills.

For the first couple of runs I stay close to the house in case I need to make a quick re-entry.

Very neat smells around the cedar tree. The grass by the bird feeder was all dug up so I know some furry beast has been prowling. The PM thinks it was the vile and menacing SKUNK!!

Scary stuff my friends.

I am well camouflaged out here in the fall.

Can you see me?

I spent about 11 minutes scouting the area then had to go in for a nice roast by the wood stove.

Hello, hello, HELLO!!!!!

Yes, it is my 3rd Gotcha Day out here in the woods!!

Wow! Time has flown! I remember when I came here, how nervous and freaked out I was. I am feeling pretty secure now and right at home. I've also gotten a little bit "floofier" since I arrived but it's all good.

The PM dug out her knitting as she is working on some Christmas gifts.
(Note the Harley mug!)

She said the ball of yarn was not my Gotcha Day gift.

I said I knew that, what I want is to get back to visiting my friends and showing up on this darn blog some more!!

She said she is never going to have any extra free time just suddenly appear so we are being put on the weekly to-do calendar! Yippee!!! Once a week is not purrfect but I'll be happy with that!

Garden Visitors

I was just minding my own business, having a snooze, when this beast lumbered by!

Excuse me, sir, I think your home is across the barbed wire fence there.

The PM and wee ones went out to investigate but the wanderer just stopped and stared.

This must have been the mama as she was not happy and kept hollering at him.

I didn't take any chances and called for some back up.

The next morning, the PM went for a stroll to try and find the hole the fella came through. None was found and everything seemed serene.

An hour later we were joined by one...


three escapees!

There was another black one clomping through the PM's shade garden so she dropped the camera and went out. When they saw her they all took off across the yard.

You know how THoE is a funny and exciting experience? Well, THoC~ not so much.

The reinforcements were needed once more.

Today we are wishing our floofy fella a wonderful~

7th Gotcha Day!

That also means that he is 7 and a half years old. Wow! Pushin' the double digits there.

Goldie would like to spend his day running with our foxy friends but he is content to lay in his bed by the window and watch. Those foxes do some silly things!

(click to biggify)

We have been getting a CSA half share for about a month now and I wanted to check out what all the excitement was all about.

OK, lots of organic greenery.

Wait! What is this huge thing? It is almost as big as I am.

A leaf lettuce you say?

I may have to sample a leaf tip...

or two...

or three!

Even though he gets on my nerves.

I have to admit....

I am rather fond of that apricot fool.

Sometimes you just need a little "leg-up"!

Hi Friends!

Hi Friends!

We are finally back!

The PM has been so busy with her secular homeschooling group that she has had no time for anything. It is the only one in the province and the PM can see why; it's a lot of work!

We are all fine though and happy summer is finally here in all it's glory.

Shade has been hanging out with the Blue Jays.

Banshee has been hanging out with the cardboard.

Goldie is always busy eyeballing the crows.

Our furry pals have also been by for continued entertainment.

Those fox kits have really grown quickly this year. They are so cute. The PM wants to pet one but knows it is a no-no!
