Tanjimo was out and about,...

"exploring" the well house.

"Tanji, what are you doing up there?..."
"Its time to head back inside"

"Hi Mom"

"Ok, lets head inside,..."

Where it is warm and comfy.

Christmas Day Walk

On Christmas day, the family excitedly
headed out for our daily "walk."

Woooo Hooooo

Hey guys, the melted snow and rain is filling the East pond.

Yeah water !!

Look at this new "little" timber bamboo.

Yeah bamboo !!

"Mooom, look at meeee,... I'm in a tree."

"You call that a tree,... now this is a tree,...
Hey guys,... look at meeee !!!"

Spots staying on the path,...

The family regrouped, because

a special toy came outside with us today.
If you look real closely in today's blog
you might catch a glimpse of it.

Oh boy,
I can't wait to see what happens.

Storage Space Maxed Out

We have maxed out our blogger
account's free picture storage space,
i.e. we can't currently upload any more pictures.

We have purchased more volume,
but our account hasn't been updated yet.

So, today we will post some pictures already uploaded.
All of today's pictures are from between our two snow storms.

"I guess you will just have to look at me,... then,..."

"Fine, I will cruise my way south,...

to the birch tree grove,..."

These trees are good for climbing.

South neighbor's Leyland Cypresses.

View to the east.

View to the west.

The clouds are dark,
but the sun poked through brightly.

and "our" Raptors soared overhead.

Uschi was in an exploratory mood.

Mmmmm ?

Tanji's ladder looks interesting.

"Tanji,... He's on your ladder,... !!!"

"Whaaaat ?!"


"I'm sorry"
