For Christmas, our friends included a little present for the cats in our box of goodies....
"Get this thing off me NOW or I will excise your eyeballs with my claws and have them for supper!"
"Do I look like a circus clown to you?? Wait, don't answer that."
"Lemme go Daddy! Lemme go!"
"Please take it off!"
"Not yet, Emily. Mummy's taking photos."
"Right.My name is Emily Rowe-Campbell. You killed my dignity. Prepare to die!"
"Are you seriously telling me you don't have enough photos yet?!"
Meanwhile, for Boxing Day I made...
...latkes with sour cream and apple sauce! I'm thinking of starting a Boxing Day tradition. I do love Jewish food! This recipe belonged to my friend Deb's mother Rose, and I hope that she would forgive me for using red onions. We were out of white. Tasted the same but the dark flecks were less aesthetically pleasing.
And today, that whopper of a snowstorm that has been troubling the USA is moving in...
They are predicting 20 cm/8 in of snow, which doesn't sound that bad to me, but it's blowing around and visibility is poor. I'm glad neither of us has to drive anywhere today.
The birds have to eat, whatever the weather.
Emily loves watching bird TV from my office window!
This doesn't look so bad, until I realize that I can usually see acres of fields beyond that big old white spruce. Not today!
Whatever you're up to today, I hope no one sticks a frilly belled collar around your neck!
