Hello Maggie .. Fireplace looks exceptionally cozee ..
We can use logs on ours ... or Gas ..
Weather here is rain rain .. even more rain and storms ..
although we've got off light in Middle England .. worst being North ..

.. glimpse of sun just after your email ..
dashed around .. finally ready and its as dull as ditchwater again ..
so now I'm sharing a bowl of hearty porridge with moshed banana with Muffin
We Collected our vehicle from way up in Derbyshire Hills tother day ..
Cold enough to snow .. I made Muffin a Boob Tube .. a circular piece of
comfort with wriggle room .. slotted him in .. popped under my coat..
and he stayed warm in the biting winds with just his fuzzy head feathers blowing in breezes ..

4 months down the line the last Airstream Import is Legal ..
Since August .. we've paid for Storage .. Tax and Insurance but unable to use until Government issued a Number Plate .. Having said that .. Theres an electrical fault Hans is still scratching his head over which dogged us across the States .. .. dodgy on test runs over here .. I drove behind Hans in pitch darkness and the power cut out ..
a most uncomfortable couple of hours ..
we left the VW at the rear [couldn't get past anyway] ..and stood at the front with the Torch Dan gave us .. which prob saved us from a nasty do as some idiot came tearing down the narrow country road .. spotted the torch .. slid sideways and stopped on a sixpence couple feet away from Airstream front .. When the engine finally started .. Hans sent me down the lane to the Ancient Church where the service was in full swing to ask if owners could move their vehicles as we couldn't get through .. anyway .. .. Left the torch with him .. set off .. seemed to get darker and darker and creepier and creepier .. so I did what any sensible person would do .. panicked and ran back ..
Waited nearly 2 hours until the service was over ..
Give us American Roads any day ..

Dogs must be marvellous company ..
and clever too .. watched a vid this morning of one using the lavatory ..
Muffin does too .. i hold him and whisper .. "do doo doos" .. and he does ...

Picture i took ..
Just after we collected Airstream from Docks
New Forest .. where the Horses freely roam ..

Lovely picture, Lili, and such lush forest!

A potty trained bird....who knew. I don't believe Lily would take well to learning to use the toilet.

Love your new avatar. .

Sorry to hear of the troubles with your rig, but I suspect Hans will get if figured out. Nice that he is handy that way, as we are not all.

The woodstove in the little house is one of the best things I did when I had this built 30 years ago, and was my nod to a lifelong dream to live in a log cabin.

Not too practical, even to live in the country, for a single mom with two young children. Some may do this, but it was not for me.

I was a town girl, without country skills, and not going to try to learn at that point in my life.

And so, every winter I have my fire and that radiant heat I so love. The rest of the year, I just enjoy looking at that woodstove.

Fire is good, it comforts me and makes me smile..... every single time.


Maggie

Yep .. Muffin has direct aim .. only once has doo doos gone sideways as he stated before hovering above the hole .. it was like one of those incredible football goals .. still went in ..
I shouted howzat ! and he nearly fell off my finger ..
its funny when he's not quite ready ..
he strains for a second or 2 then stares up at me ..
Ive an Antique Chest in the Lavatory .. used to plonk him there
but wasn't too keen on his regular habit of him being regular ..
so i thought .. if i do doo doos in a particular area why cant he ..
only took 3 attempts and he cottoned on .. same with shaking hands .. although he doesn't do it at the same time .. he'd lose his balance ..
Cant beat a real fire .. in Cottage or Wood ..
Date on the New Forest Picture is incorrect .. taken in August .. Tried to organise myself .. re-labelled many pictures .. made a complete hash of it .. ended up even more disorganised .. Im a lost cause .. toodiloos ...

I believe that, too, Bud.


And....that's hysterical, Lili!

As I read all your posts, covered by a cushy throw...all 4 pups have taken up favorite positions on me & the throw...I feel like I'm wrapped in a burrito of throw and pups! My two and Deb's two little ones love this throw, now sleeping deeply. Snow is flying....we are under blizzard warnings....expect up to one foot or more of snow. Time to drink hot cocoa, build a fire, snuggle in with the pups and Mom and daughter. Evelyn.

That paints a cozy picture, Evelyn.

That storm is headed this way, supposed to be mostly rain, but a bit of snow is predicted.

Yep! Relaxing in my leather recliner, I usually get 1 or 2, my chihuahua and my chubby Pomeranian mix...Mikki and Nikko. Deb's Russell terrier mix, Angel, and our little Pom, Bella Diva ....all 4 are rescues from local Dumb Friends League.

At night,we each have 2 in bed, but, when it starts getting cold, I toss a throw over me on the recliner...I get them all. Not complaining at all. I love all of these snuggly little babies. All 4 are small.....together might make one reasonable size dog.

I enjoy the companionship of people, but, it is hard to deny the unconditional love of these babies! They never disappoint and are always happy to be with us. The feeling is mutual. I will never understand how anyone could harm an animal! Evelyn.

It is sickening to read of the camping family of 6 in Texas, murdered Sunday by a neighbor for no apparent reason....but for, perhaps, what the sociologists would call "contagion" .....from Paris, and other recent and murderous rampages.

Recent transplants from Maine, this was a family of Airstreamers in cwf's WBCCI Unit, known personally by him and others here. Such a senseless tragedy. My heart goes out to them.

Who are these people, so disconnected and disaffected that they will murder strangers, including children. The world is imploding.


Did my first, non-crochet, volunteer work at the hospice center offices yesterday afternoon, which will be a Monday committment for me when I am home.

The volunteer coordinator called me about 15 minutes before I was due there, basically to find out if I was showing up.

I politely told her that showing up is what I do....if I say I will be there, I will be there.

I simply don't do no-shows.

She laughed, said she was just being sure, and wouldn't be concerned about it again.

Not really knowing me, how could she possibly be aware that doing what I say I am going to do is hard wired in me. . Really.....if you are not a person of your word, what are you.

Rain, pouring rain and wind here today, but we really need the rain.....if only it didn't interfere with leaf extraction and removal.

We have had a few winters at this house that I recall, where the snows fell and the ground froze before leaves could be removed...and they weren't then removed til Spring.

Starting another prayer shawl today.... nothing really going on but for watching the news, staying by the fire and out of the rain.

Lily always hunkers down on rainy days. Such a dog of creature comforts she has become. No interest in being wet or cold.


Maggie
