And other random shots. I have to preface this by saying it was an incredibly hard week here, and I am so grateful for Keith, who insisted on doing the morning chores in the dark and bitter cold. He did a great job.
Our house, however, is a MESS and that is the project of the day. It is a humble house, as I've said before.
We hope, this spring, to tear up all the carpet that was down when we moved here, and put tile down, easier to clean when tramping in and out, and with all the paws on it. We're anticipating April, but we know how things go, too.
So here are some pictures:
Here is what I found in my boot:
We had just talked the night before about the fact that last year we were overrun with field mice in the house... we actually had to poison them, we had so many. Gwen spent the winter laying in wait for them to poke their noses out. This year we have seen none, but this week, I began to see some "evidence" of them. We know there are black snakes in the crawl space, and assumed they had cut down on the mouse population.
I actually put my socked foot in the boot, and felt something, thinking it was a sock I had somehow left in there (I have double-socked all week). Imagine my surprise when I looked down. It had been in the toe of the boot, so no, I didn't stand up on it, thank heavens. Even a mouse deserves to live in a snowstorm. He was dumped under the sink, to hopefully find another home. I didn't have the heart to put him outside. I'm a sap.
Aztec, standing wooly and fit at 3 months old on Wednesday.
Keith took a picture of a pug pile on Thursday.
Abby spent some time with Dr. Tom yesterday. She is now in danger from being overweight, so is on a weight-reduction diet, and strict orders for excercise as soon as the weather clears. We are going to walk her (slowly) down in Tongie at the track, along with Gertie. Gertie has been the best for her, they play constantly, but the weight is endangering Abs. Gertie needs to keep HER girlish figure, as well. So I'll walk Abby slowly, and Keith and Gert will stride out!
And lastly, the fluffy derriere of rooster Two, who was a smart boy Wednesday and stayed up in the rafters near the light in the henhouse, for the warmth!
Grandson Nathan is coming today with his mom to make bread for us... yummmm! I'll ask him to take some pictures, he loves to use the camera and is getting to be a good shot. I think I know what his birthday present will be this year!
