Check out the AMAZING birthday cake our friend Ronna made for me and Gordon this year...
That's a beautiful rendition of our leopard gecko Kartini sitting next to an exquisite cactus. Ronna made all those prickles from piped royal icing. It took her two hours just to do the prickles!!
As you can see, we were thrilled! Gordon seems to be overwhelmed by it all. :)
Under the buttercream icing was delicious red velvet cake!
Gordon made vanilla ice cream to go with it. It always pains me to cut into Ronna's masterpieces, but she doesn't seem to mind.
And Naomi (like all my cats!) LOOOOOOVES Auntie Ronna.
Speaking of cats, here's trouble...
"I am jungle cat!"
"Go away now or I will eat you for supper like the lion I am!"
And speaking of lions...
Julius does not make it easy to work at my computer.
And here's a tree of birds outside my kitchen window this morning...
Not the greatest pic, but there's a male Cardinal, a Downy woodpecker, a Hairy woodpecker, and several fluffed-up Blue Jays.
We got quite a lot of snow in the last 24 hours, and then the winds whipped up today!
It left a few huge drifts!
That's not a buried Mazda. It's solid snow.
The winds finally died down a bit towards sunset, but the windchill tomorrow is supposed to be -38C.
I love this 100+ year-old white spruce. And another impressive drift!
Hope you all have a great week!
