Winter in November

Good thing we did the raking ourselves this year (in October) instead of waiting for the contractor! Looks like we have a lot of small limbs down under the weight of the snow. Note the turkey in flight (second photo).

Tree project

I decorated this tree for a museum fundraiser. Painted the peg people and made the foil decorations. Wrapped some wooden blocks in foil paper to put underneath as presents. Fashioned the bows out of fabric and red twine. About 80% of my experimental decorations failed, but it eventually came together into something. It's a bit messy, but it's ready in time for the deadline. Now, just have to deliver it without it falling apart! Happy Christmas season to all!

Getting cozy

 Early October--pretty close
Late October--first observed kitty cuddle. Li Li took Minnie's spot, so Minnie just plop herself behind/on top of her. (Maybe not so much of a "cuddle" as a refusal to give in!)

If it weren't for the photo on the top, we wouldn't have known he was still alive. It still took a week to catch him after we saw that photo. Bottom photo: safe and sound. He's become a very friendly/clingy cat, which overall is a nice change (he let me handle him to remove ticks!). However, he may be becoming a bit possessive of us. The two girls, who got along with him fine before, aren't all that pleased with his return. We're hoping the hissing will settle down soon.
