It's Boxing Day and we've all been lolling about, digesting...
Of course the cats are more than ready to stuff their faces again. Alex wants to know why supper is taking so long.
Emerson seems more interested in the birdfeeder outside the window, but Louise is right in there!
I got Gordon this great shirt at RC Tees.
Emily is vigilant!
Alex wonders what the hell is taking so long. Eventually everyone got fed!
Here's a shot from Christmas eve. We had a little wine with our cheese fondue.
And Christmas breakfast...
Oatmeal (with Irish oats!) with sauteed Golden Delicious apples, pecans, cinnamon, maple syrup and rather a lot of cream.
Meanwhile, Lenny the blind 27-year-old farm mallard...
...apparently has a new Muscovy girlfriend! Karène was hanging around him today.
He had a bath, which is why he's a damp duck. And he has grain stuck on his beak!
He seems quite happy tottering around the fenced-in area we have for the birds. I keep an eye on him and today was the first time I left him alone out there for any length of time, but he did fine. No one seems to be picking on him. I'm going to keep his cage in the duck coop for now and he can sleep in there, plus I'll make sure he gets his food and water in there so no one else stills it from him. He has an adorable quack and seems quite happy!
Happy Boxing day and have a great weekend.
