and I'm loving it! We aren't buried in snow. There's almost no snow. It was 42F today and I was wearing shorts when I filled the bird feeder. Oh, I wish, I wish it would stay this way.

We decided to get a little fake tree this year and got a bargain, two little fake trees for the price of one. More to decorate!
First, ribbon instead of tinsel. Second, sculpting* cephalopods. When they are dry, the painting will commence.
Then, hanging stuff all over the trees. Fun all the way around.
*A sculptor I most definitely am not. Rick did the squid & octopus.

Finally got the monster dogs out for a bit of play out to Rattlesnake Point.
We're waiting on two female rats, but it could be a very long wait. When in town today, we stopped by KT's and saw a baby boy rat, all of 8 weeks old, who looks remarkably like Chas, right to the white streak on the nose. On top of that, he had the most adorable monster ears and he's odd-eyed, one black eye and one ruby eye. So...he came home with us.
His name is Rubin and both Chas and Esme were happy to welcome him in. Esme in particular is happy, she now has someone else to bully and Rubin, being all of a month younger than her, has equal energy. He's doing well for being in the studio for less than a day and has all manner of fun exploring and wrestling with Esme.
