This morning before our walk I watch as the momma devours a piece of lemon meringue pie for breakfast. Does anyone else think that is weird? Then she says to me that WE need to go for a long walk! Hey, I was not the one eating pie for breakfast, but, whatever!
|So off we start across the frozen tundra.|
I should point out the temperature will be dropping continually today. When we left for our walk it was -16C and upon getting back an hour later it was -18C. Supposedly it will get down to -25C this afternoon.
|Of course I must stop to dig along the way!|
Mom doesn't know how I do it, but I am always finding mice under the snow! Yummy!
After walking around the neighbor's slough we decided to head for home.
|Waiting for mom to catch up to me!|
I think the momma felt guilty for eating that slice of lemon meringue pie for breakfast, because on returning home, I got a nice deer bone to chow down on.
Now what does mom do when it is so cold outside and she isn't taking me for a walk? Well she does like to crochet and knit, but for the last several years (yes, years!) she has been working on a cross stitch project. The project is on 22 count grey aida cloth (whatever that is), and when completed will be 16" x 24". She just finished putting in all the full cross stitches and now needs to finish off the 1/2 cross stitches and the outlining. She is hoping to finally get it done this winter.
|Finally nearing completion.|
Well now I need to go finish my deer bone and mom needs to get back to work on this cross stitch project. She says this picture is the reason she needed progressive lenses! Maybe if everyone sends her some encouraging words, she will actually get it finished before spring!
