Buds of Mordor

I know the buds of Spring are supposed to inspire hope and renewal.. But frankly these ones on a tree near my house kinda scare me a bit

Fair enough

Very rare arborous kettlus

Coyotes <3

I love 'em, but I won't ever understand how people can leave their cats outdoors here. They make tasty snacks to coyotes. Legend has it that our cat Leroy was caught by a coyote (in his previous life). But the family's german shepherd spooked it and it dropped him...

Morning Coffee

Afternoon Cat

And in the evening we went to see "Made in Dagenham", (pronounced VERY phonetically by Canadians), so much so that the guy in the box office asked me to repeat myself. 

'Coz I didn't say Dag-in-HAM...

Highly recommended though!

Well Well Well

Soooo my year's project has come to an end.. while I haven't been entirely true to my aim of one post a day, I have stuck it out for the most part. I have proved a little something to myself.. that being - I don't have the attention span of a goldfish as previously thought.

I think I'll be keeping it going in the capacity I have been for the past few months... whenever I can get it together enough to do it basically.

Happy New Year everybody x

Moony Moon

Wensleydale Gromit?

I think "A Grand Day Out" is still my favourite Wallace and Gromit animation.. I love cheese.. and the moon. So it's pretty much an inevitability that it would be a hit with me..

Shame I can't see the night sky as well here as I used to be at home. But the moon did make a nice appearance over the mountains.. and it looked so cheesey and yum.

Chas likes cheese too.. poor Morph

Don't you DARE leave me

Called in sick today, went to the chemist, came back home... 

Found this (Exhibit A):

and this (Exhibit B):

It is unclear whether the motive was good or bad... was she trying to: 

a. Save money on a Santa beard (note the dough drops in whiskers),
b. Mimic Oscar and make some bread (albeit carpet-bread),
c. Make me laugh (in an attempt to cheer me up),
d. All of the above, but really just being bad?

Jury is out.

This is not my picture

Can't quite shake the funk...

Melancholy pre-Christmas Christmas card writin' kinda day...

Jack Frost

I love frost.. we don't see as much of it here as in Ireland. It makes such pretty pictures outlining the natural beauty of leaves and stuff. I took this picture on my new phone. The resolution doesn't seem to be as good as the old phone, but you get the idea.

I have an urge to go ice skating... and to be Daisuke Takahashi... but a girl.

Happy Birthday Big Sis!

Correct me if I'm wrong... but is there ONE Irish person who would be concerned with the calorific content of the black shtuff?

Oh.. that's right.. I live in North America now.

Frog Dog

I know, I know... gratuitous dog shot. But really, she is THE best dog in the world. So there.
