This is more like it! Winter, that is.

Hooray! We got just a bit of the snow that has been completely blanketing a lot of the states around us…..and my state north of us.

It’s very pretty and cold and white and therefore looks like Christmas! We are dog-sitting Leo, so he and Reuben and Orion had a great time on our walk/run through the back acreage yesterday.

  1. Hehe, happy pups for sure! Ummm…about your Santa bird house. Give me a few minutes 😀

  2. Yay! It looks so much prettier than the dump of rain we’re getting out here.

    (Yes, I’m glad we’re not in a drought like the southern Midwest. But watching Dad track in mud and dead leaves all over the floor I just mopped is crazy-making.)

    So my intervention did work after all. 🙂
    Is this Orion’s first winter?
    WP need to increase the volume of snowflakes drifting across your blog.

      I agree, GOF. I am always wondering where the flakes are. Um….oh…nevermind.
      We got Orion last year on November 10th. So he had last year as his first winter. We had VERY little snow, but he loved what we did have. He just zooms around and is very entertaining to watch.

      • GOF says:

        WP snowflakes keep changing the direction they fall…that’s really cool. Yours were coming from the NE a few hours ago… from the NW. 🙂
        It must have been fun to watch when Orion saw his first snow…..I can’t wait to see what Kebba does when she sees her first wild pig…..I’m just worried that the outcome may not be good, but there’s probably not much we can do to stop her chasing because it’s in her breeding.

        • Lauri says:

          Are the pigs grumpy enough to do her any damage?
          And what are the chances of Kebba coming across a Brown Snake? I just read an article about a small boy in Oz who brought some snake eggs inside the house. Seven Browns hatched in his closet. Thankfully his mother found them and no one was hurt. Scary!

          • GOF says:

            The big pigs could easily kill her with their tusks….professional pig hunters always fit leather protective vests to their dogs (often with GPS trackers ) so they don’t lose them. We don’t have many highly venomous snakes in the wet rainforest. Most live on the coast or more arid inland places. The kid who collected the eggs which hatched was only 3 years old and lived in Townsville, 5 hours south of us.
            Around the same time a large number of newly-hatched pythons were discovered in the wall cavity of a child care centre. I like the idea of introducing children to nature early in life. Much better than computers.

            • Lauri says:

              I snorted on a mouthful of wine with that comment about introducing children to nature early in life. So true.
              I hope that Kebba never runs into a dangerous pig. Our dogs have very few dangers to run into. Our old dog, Toffee, was allergic to bees, so we had an epi-pen for if she ever got stung. Other than that, as long as they stay on our property, away from cars, we don’t have to worry.

  4. Yay … now keep it up there!


    Actually, we’re supposed to get a “little” snow on Christmas. Anything that happens after 7am on Monday – I don’t care.

    • Lauri says:

      Yeah, I have kids traveling on the 24th and 25th, so I reserve the right to wish for good roads on those days. 🙂
      My sister and her family made it to SE Michigan from Chicago today and the roads were clear all the way. I think that’s the first year they haven’t had to drive in a snow or ice storm.
