Things have quieted down!

Hooper is healthier. He appears to have given his cold to Daisy, who was not well. She spent the afternoon hunkered down under a blanket in the basement. She spent the night on top of hubby's feet, on top of his heating blanket.  While her eye infection has spread to both eyes, the stronger ointment seems to be working. (I've been so careful washing my hands, too.) Today, she is harassing Annabelle. She must be feeling better. Hooper came along, and chased her tail, which broke it all up.

We introduced Hooper to Clown Pants, a cat toy we bought 5 years ago!

I tried to put the little doggie coat on him. He didn't like it!


We have a new buck, he has 9 points, so it's not Tigger, the antlers aren't as big as his. I am hoping Tigger and his brother survived hunting season. The photos are quite as focused as they could be. I walked out onto the back deck, and he took off. They are wisely cautious.


Every morning, a really big doe comes and visits the bird feeder, looking for breakfast. She is followed by her yearling. They are frequent flyers!


The round feeder keeps out larger birds, such a Downy Woodpeckers, and the notorious Blue Jays. This gives the little birds a chance to feed. It was a birthday gift from Caitlin, the stand holding the feeders, was a gift from her last year! My boys don't do birthdays.


It's cold, but the sunshine has been lovely.

Holiday season is over. Nearly time to change the tablecloth!

Daisy being on that blanket, she's thinking, "the things I put up with..."

Crikey, yes, only two more sleeps and we awake in a 'new' one. Let's hope not too much of the old gets carried over... YAM xx (who has landed into a sick-pit here in Edinburgh; gotta get him bathed and the place aired somehow, before the end of this one...)

Yes each deer is different. You will learn to recognize individuals. It's like racism. we think all deer are exactly the same.
