First, I need to have a word with Alex. This morning I caught him tearing a strip of wallpaper off my office wall! Now, I loathe this wallpaper and DO want to remove it, but not until we're prepared to repair and paint the plaster walls underneath! So I told him to cut it out.
Too late! Alex is indulging in some simultaneous wallpaper-stripping and bird-watching.
"Hey, this is fun. Hot damn, claws sure are useful!"
Meanwhile on Saturday night, my friend Ronna took pity on me. Gordon was in Washington, D.C. for several days on business, so Ronna invited me over for a lovely meal with her and the resplendent Richard. Now here's the part where my blog starts mimicking her blog again, because if you visit today, you'll find the next few pictures and more. Today, I am the star of Ronna's blog post! An autograph-signing session will be held in at the convenience store in Apple Hill at 3:41 pm. ;)
To me, Ronna is the star. Look at the wonderful dessert she made for me! Red velvet cake with cream cheese icing, Cadbury Mini eggs, and Peeps decorated to look like my chickens. The one at the upper left is Ronna's rendition of our Chicky, her favourite hen.
The cakes were delicious and beautiful too!
After supper, we watched a movie and I bonded with Ronna's lovely cats. You can see more pics of THAT on Ronna's blog. Thanks, R & R, for a great evening and for saving me for a supper of cereal!
We had quite the mix of weather this weekend, with rain, freezing rain and snow. In the end, we got quite a bit of snow. Last night the sky was pink and gorgeous. The photos really don't do it justice...
That is a honking big white spruce next to our house (at least, I think it's a white spruce. I am bad with tree I.D.) It's about thrice as tall as our house!
Spring's coming, right? Right??
Have a good week!
