Greetings all! It's Winston. First I would like to wish all of the Canadian readers a "Happy Thanksgiving"! It is tomorrow.
Next...guess what!? Mom finally got my birthday gifts. (More than a month late!) Here I am standing next to my favorite treats in the word: Temptations Seafood Flavour.
Apparently, it is also Emily's favorite treat. The nerve of her!
I also got a catnip toy. Can you see Emily? I just know she wants to play with my new toy, too!
What do you say felines? Should I share?
Mom has been off on her staycation. She really appreciates having slow mornings where she writes in her journal. This beautiful journal was a gift from Mom's sister. Mom is also excited to be using her autumn plates. There are tiny birds on an autumn branch.
(That is a slice of pumpkin bread and a mug of tea--how boring!)
She also felt like she could color a wee bit. Mom says it is relaxing. Except when Emily thinks the pencil crayons are toys that need to be smacked off the table and hidden!
Mom also went on a day trip to a lovely place called Winter Wheat in Sparta, Ontario. There is a very creative artist at work here! Mom liked this "jazz cat"
A garden lady surrounded by teapots and teacups.
A lampshade garden angel!
Beautiful, jewel-toned candle hangers swaying on the porch.
Kitties, lots more stuff is going on. However, we need to be brief, at least for now. Do you see this lovely figurine? It's a Willow Tree Angel. Our Mom has several. Well, guess what, Mom got all misty when she received this one. (The image is taken from the Willow Tree Angel site)
It's called Surrounded by Love. Her niece bought it for our Mom and gave it to her on Saturday when Mom's sister and niece came for a visit. Mom said it made the hard bits in her heart feel a bit softer. She wanted to cry, happy tears, but knew her niece would probably make fun of her!!
We will close for now.
This last photo...it's the light shining through the trees at Winter Wheat.
