The Last Bits of Light

Fading through our bedroom window, I caught the glowing embers of the evening sun. Gone are the days of bright lit skies in a summer day. Gone are the days of sweltering heat and sweaty bodies. Now we have the chill of winter upon us and the cold winds to swirl our hair.
I must say, suddenly I'm in the mood for hot coco...

Playing with the Stairs

Alfie has never known stairs, until the new house. She was so scared at first, not sure what would be lurking up or down them, but curious all the same. The first week anytime one of us humans would use the stairs, Alfie would puff up and run away. Now of course she is crazy for them. Trying to bat at us as she sees our heads coming her way, or chasing the other cats up, down, up, down. Good, she needs the workout. And I have to say... the stairs ain't bad for my bum either!

Sundays with Fritz-The Case of the Moving Day

Hi all, I'm back!!! Mommy finally had enough time to sit me at the computer to let me do my post tonight. Sorry I have been gone for so long, but it is quite time consuming setting up house. So many new things to play with and discover. I'm having the best time!
So let's get to the post, shall we? Moving day was quite exciting. I wasn't too sure what exactly was going on, as people kept making my house that I had known for over a year get emptier, and emptier. It was sad to say goodbye to my room and my first real home, but Mommy reassured me that I would be happier at the new place. I told her I didn't really care where I was as long as she and Daddy and all my toys were there. I guess the cats too!
Grandpa took me for lots of rides on the big red gizmo. I'm not sure what it was for, but it sure was fun being pushed around in it. I kept climbing on it to go for a ride, even when people kept telling me that I would have to wait 'cause they were busy doing other stuff.
It was a really long day, and I only had to sleep in my portable crib for one night. The next day Mommy and Daddy set up my room and it was sure a lot of fun to find all of my cool toys that had been missing for a couple of days!

Fritz... signing off.
P.S. Yes that is a coconut bra that I am wearing. Daddy got it as a present from somebody and let me play with it. It makes the coolest noises when you clack them together!

Friendly Neighbors

The morning after we had moved all of our stuff from town to town, we awoke tired and sore, but ready to start moving things off the truck into the house. As the coffee was brewing and breakfast was being sorted out, my father noticed some non-human neighbors in our front yard.
Next to my Mother's car were a few deer searching for food. These weren't the only ones either. Across the road there were about seven more. I think we counted eleven or twelve in all.
Being a Montana girl born and raised, this isn't really that surprising. Even at our house in Bozeman, during the winter months, we would usually see a couple deer walking through our yard to the little creek across the street. I remember lots of times growing up where my Dad would chase the hungry deer away from our apple trees. And since our new house is close to some hills, I knew we would be seeing the quiet animals sometimes, but not this much!! Every day I see them wandering around. I just hope that is all of the type of critters we will get. I'm not much fond of bears...

Views From Our New Door

Looking down our street. It is so quiet out here, I don't know what to do with myself!

Looking South. Nobody around. A few horses, and deer. I think there were plans for a subdivision, but not anymore. Lucky for us!

Out the back door. This is part of our yard, and the BIG hill behind us. Of course this means we have no neighbors too!

Trying to Sell Scarves in 90 Degree Heat

Yep, not that great of an idea. I did sell more than I thought, but not as many as I had hoped to sell. The total was eight and one necklace. It was so unbelievably hot outside that I am actually quite surprised any were sold! We did however, score a great location underneath a huge old tree. We had a canopy ready at hand just in case, but never needed to use it. I was set up next to other crafters, so it was very nice to speak with others who had something else to share.

It was a great experience and I did have lots of fun. Maybe I will try it again next year?

There is another craft fair in my hometown on December 5th that I will be having a booth at. Hopefully it will be really, really cold and I will sell lots!!

Some Time I Will Be Done

We are officially moved in! Although, the house is still a wreck and I am slowly finding things their place to stay. It has been quite a challenge with Fritz "helping" me organize stuff. Usually by the end of the night I have to take an extra 20 minutes to pick up all of the things he got out! Hopefully this weekend we can put the child locks on the doors again.
I am so happy to be here in the new house. The move was long and tiresome, but well worth it. And as soon as I find the silly missing camera cord, I will post pictures of the new house and the festival!
I will try to post more often now that our computer is temporarily set up, but my focus is to get this house operating and all of the boxes emptied!
P.S. We had our first snow yesterday, which is funny as barely any of the leaves have changed their color yet!
