Sigh...

I'd really like to be doing more than one blog post a week. It's been nutty around here lately, plus I'm taking a poetry course and spending a lot of time on my assignments. And then there's the billion animals I have to look after! ;)

Here's a pic from our trip to Ottawa on our anniversary a week ago. We went to the Canadian Museum of Nature and had sushi for lunch!


And here's a picture of my ass..


Sorry, but it's been NON-STOP ass jokes around here lately!!! Poor Saul!


He and the ponies are getting more and more comfortable with and tolerant of each other. Look how close Saul and Finney are eating! Speaking of Finney...




...I really need to do something with that mane!



We've started turning the all out on pasture. This week it was just 5 minutes a day. Esme will never be allowed any long periods on grass due to her unfortunately propensity for laminitis (founder.) It has been suggested to me that I get her a hay muzzle to control how much she can eat, so I am looking into that.


Look at this cutie! He is SO SWEET! Loves to have his ears stroked. He's a real darling with such a lovely nature.


Esme was having a wild and crazy mane day herself!

Meanwhile, in CATVILLE...


Two Greeks (Buttercup and Archie) and a Canadian!

And inside...


my little Greek Honey-bunny was having a nap.

Speaking of naps, I came out to this yesterday morning:



They look pretty comfy together, don't they?

And then there's this...


Gordon put some sort of paper-towel bird scultpure in my scone the other day!


Even Emily was impressed!

Have a great weekend! It's the Victoria Day weekend here in Canuckistan, so we have Monday off. Hooray!

  2. Another delightful stroll around your world. The line of cats in the sun made me chuckle out loud.
    How ambitious - and interesting! - that you're taking a poetry class. Oh, and happy anniversary!

  5. I like Gordon's *origami*?? I tried to make something for grand daughter at a Mexican Restaurant last night. All I could accomplish was a paper airplane. Love the pics of contented animals... and people! Scone looks pretty good too.

    1. A paper airplane is all *I* can accomplish, too! :) Origami was never my strong suit!

  6. You were so close; 20 minutes from our place. Let us know next time you are in the big city. Thank you so much for the sympathy card. That was very thoughtful of you and Gordon. Hugs

  7. I can only imagine the number of "ass" jokes. Finney would be cute with a braid on top--pseudo unicorn look ;-)

    Ahh...3 day weekends! Enjoy :)

  10. I wonder if all donkey have Biblical names? You have Saul and my brother has one named Abraham. At least they aren't called Jack, :)

    Love the photos of the kitties!

  14. And you've got such a nice ass. Gordon's scone sculpture is "interesting," but we'd all I'm sure much rather see that anniversary power tool he gave you.

    1. OOo why thank you!! Bahahah no one is touching that power tool but me. Oh I do love innuendo and euphemisms! ;)

  15. I'm sooooooooooooo happy you got a donkey!!!! My fantasy farm is almost complete (you need a Percheron... and a couple of peacocks) and I'm very happily living vicariously through you!

    1. I need GOATS!!! Our lower barn is too short for a Percheron. THey were my mother's favourite horses, though!

  16. I just loving (and have missed) seeing your menagerie! I think Saul is quite handsome and the paper bird on the scone is quite unique. Take a breath...I do every once and awhile, XOXO

  17. your husband is so talented! How did he do that? BTW you have beautiful blue eyes!
    Your animals are all so beautiful, your photos should be made into a book (hint, hint)

    1. Caren, he is really going to appreciate you calling him talented! :) I think he has a future in paper towel sculpture. And thank you, my parents both had blue eyes like mine.

      I have so many books in my head that need to come out. Thank you!!

  18. Poor Saul. I'll bet he has no idea he's the butt of all those ass jokes.

    1. Considering how sweet he is to me, I think he's completely unaware! Gordon keeps asking me if I've heard his ass calling...
