Where’s The Cat?

Bindi ColdBindi discovered our t-shirt quilts and decided they’re a perfect napping spot.  Until Brian sat down.  Then his lap became the perfect napping spot.

Harry Potter Advent Calendar

The girls loved our advent calendar when they were children.   Since they are off on their own, I made advent calendars for their homes this year.  Tracy and Brad received the zombie countdown calendar I posted a few months back.  Claire is a lover of all things Harry Potter so that’s the direction I went with hers.  Each drawer contains a candy treat and something to add to a little potions cabinet.  Click on the photos if you want to see them full screen.

Fun, If You’re A Dog

Mouser JackJack’s favorite pastime when left to entertain himself is searching for field mice in the pumpkin patch.   Followed by a dip in the pond.  I’ve never seen him catch one, I just think he saw one there once and wants to play with it.  He certainly keeps himself busy.

The Ladies

10Our sheep flock together when Jack’s in the pasture.   Safety in numbers.  They each have a distinct personality.  Someone jumped our locked gate this morning and walked our half mile driveway to ask if we sell our sheep.  Umm… no and didn’t you see the no trespassing sign?

He Used To Be Mine

Binx Binx was our very first sphynx cat.  We got him from a breeder in Montana when our daughter Tracy was in 6th grade.  She’s all grown up now and Binx lives with her and her husband in Florida.  She sent me this photo of Binx checking out their very first live Christmas tree.  He’ll be 19 years old in a few weeks.  Merry Christmas, little old man!

When we bought this property seven years ago, we planted a few things in anticipation of being able to enjoy them years down the road.  The grapevines are long gone and we’ve yet to enjoy an apple, peach, cherry, apricot or persimmon.  But… a few of the 75 spruce seedlings we dispersed across our property survived and we harvested our very own Christmas tree this year.  🙂  We planted about half of them in the pasture without thinking ahead.  Those were doing pretty well until our goats arrived.
