Hydrangea

I’m excited to sit by the fire and watch the games today.  We did all our house cleaning yesterday before having the whole family over for dinner so there aren’t many chores to be done. (Of course there are tons more to be done but why do today what you can put off until tomorrow?)

The heater is fixed again (for now) so our house is warm and that problem solved.  Now we just have to deal with the smart cats who are using the new dog door to bring in live mice and rabbits and then hunting them in the house.  We’ve also seen bird feathers under the dining room table (the eating place of choice) but no live birds thank goodness….We are also happy we haven’t seen this fat guy in the house either…..

Possum

Notice his fat ass is inside  the bag of cat food that he just finished gorging himself on….He hung around on our porch the whole evening and was gone in morning.  Doug was convinced his slowness and reluctance to move on was due to a seriously stuffed belly.  Weirdly enough he was actually sort of cute….

I’m sure I’ll have some more knitting pics this week–I’ve completed another Fake Isle out of Kochoran for me and I’m making one out of Kureyon for Uncle Bill.

Enjoy your sunday….

    Maybe it’s a she and she has a belly full of babies? And yes I’d be very careful, they have very nasty teeth. I love your pictures and blog.

    I once read a nature book (Hal Borland) that explained that the possum’s brain has the smallest brain capacity of woodland animals; hence the least brain power. Possums move slowly because they are not smart enough to move fast.
    As in: Why did the possum cross the road?

    Answer: We don’t know because no possum has ever done it.

    Ahhh, he is rather cute. Eeeeuhgh on the cats, I would be quite hysterical about the whole live mice thing, I am not very good with mice which is rather unfortunate as there are quite a few of them around here. Luckily, the airing cupboard is the only place they seem to get into, I don’t use it, ever. They are a big problem out in one of our sheds and we used to trap them but it was a bit of a never-ending story….
