At the beginning of the Winter Break, the full two weeks off with kids and hubby home seemed to stretch ahead like a lifetime. Now that they’re all back to a normal schedule again, it seemed to have blipped by ultra fast. Anyone else feel that way?
I trust you all had a great Christmas/Hanukkah/Insert-Holiday-Celebration-Here and New Year, right? We had the plague hit our household, so needless to say when it came to present opening on both Christmas Eve and Christmas morning, I didn’t end up taking pics of the kids opening their gifts.
I did, however, give them 100% attention so who cares if it wasn’t saved digitally for infamy, right? At least I have my memories.
After the ruckus of ripping paper and exclamations of “It’s just what I’ve always wanted!” died down, I did manage to capture Blackspot, who decided one of Princess Nagger’s discarded boxes of tissue and wrapping paper looked like the comfiest place in the room:
Some days I’d love to lead the life of a cat. Blackspot is definitely quite the character.
Speaking of characters… Raven Carrington posted this picture on her Facebook wall:
With this accompanying text:
I never realized how big a grizzly paw is!! No the bear isn’t dead. He’s just very friendly. (I’m joking). He is sedated for tagging purposes.”
I had no idea grizzly paws were that big, did you? Makes those that survived getting attacked and/or mauled even more impressive with their survival skills. I sure wouldn’t want to run into that massive paw or claws!
Speaking of wild critters… This picture was floating around last week as well:
How cool would that be to live in a place where a deer makes himself comfy on a dog bed on the back deck? I’m sure that’s most likely photoshopped, but it’s still cool to dream of the possibilities.
Hey, looky there! I’m keeping it short and sweet this week! I’ve also decided to adopt Xmas Dolly’s idea of adding an additional linky just to encourage more followers where you need it most. We can all use more followers, right? So feel free to link up the random on the first linky, and a follower linky on the second one. Let’s see if we can party like rock stars!
That’s a wrap for this week – you know the drill, link up and join in the fun, everyone is welcome, random or not.
