Dressed for Snow

Hey mom, we wanna go outside! Hold on. It's cold out. I need to get dressed first.
Ha ha! Look, it's Ralphie's little brother! No wait, it's Kenny from South Park!
Maybe we should have quit while we were ahead.

Yeah, it’s best not to piss off the mama.

Peas

Hey mom, I'd like to help make dinner tonight.  That's nice of you!  What would you like to  make?

Bear Paw Quilt

This rustic Bear Paw Quilt will keep you warm on cold winter nights. Bear Paw Quilt would fit nicely at the cabin by the lake or thrown over the couch. The pattern is geometric, and the colors are bold yet earthy. The overall effect is of paw prints in snow. On sunny days, the colors look so inviting it is hard not to lie down on them and take a nap.

Bear Paw Quilt is available from my shop.

Tumbleweeds

Ew! For heaven't sake woman, have some shame! What? I've been in quarantine almost a year. Nobody sees me.
So we're not "somebody"? For the purposes of this argument, no.
Why is it acceptable that you guys are all furry and not me? 'Cause we're adorable.
Two Cairn terriers pant in the sun.

See? I told you we were adorable!

Introductions

Hi, my name is Star. Your name is Toaster.
Sigh...

Toby and Tiger

Ouch. Doesn't this smack of copyright infringement? Nah, it's an homage!

While Toby’s bestie for trouble-making is Blue Puppy, his partner when it comes to food is Tiger. Tiger is actually a cheetah, but my family named the toy “Tiger”, and this is what I picture in my mind when they say it.

When Toby first started bringing me Tiger, I thought he wanted me to chase him. It took several tries before I realized that Toby was saying “Tiger is hungry too”. (D’oh!) So now after Toby eats he brings me Tiger, and then Tiger has his share.

Tiger waits patiently for his snack while Toby heads off by himself.

Toby had tried to steal a pair of pajama bottoms from the laundry to trade for food, but the more he pulled the more he closed the door on himself. Eventually he gave up and took a nap.

Boots

Mommy’s boots and puppies’ boots

After a day of play.

They go with us on our ADventures

and then by the door they stay.

Climbing hills, breaking trails,

They go wherever we go.

We take them off when we say goodnight

And dream of more days of snow.

Two puppies make snow angels in a snow bank.
Two puppies look at their snow angels. One is an angel, the other one a devil.

Ooh, tough break Toby.
