Meetso in the fur

Just some ravenously hansom pics of Meetso taken last year in late spring I think. As you can see he still had not shed his lovely fur off for the summer. 

Oh a small progress report. Still lots of bush hacking to do, pulling of ivy vines, pulling of butter cup weeds to do and not to mention pull out all that grass around the pond too. Besides I don't think Meetso can really enjoy that overgrown tall grass anyways. I'm also thinking of now hacking that overgrown bush near my bedroom window in half because of a incident of a peeping tom last night. I don't know what those guys get for disturbing my evening anyways. 1. He can't see anything anyways. So what is the point of knocking on the wall? Practical joke? Really no point and not funny. Also stupid. next house he does that could involve a gun pointing at him. He should really consider that. Get a life dude! 
Oh did I mention I broke a tooth? Yeah I broke a tooth on an already cracked tooth one of 2 a few years ago by eating something stupid. So now I have to make an appointment or two to get it crowned and oh yeah my gum cut. Yup gum cut cause the tooth as in molar is a bit short so they can to get at the problem area. Fun. 😿
Oh and yeah getting my hair done tomorrow too. For awhile at least I'll look like a different human. 
Actually going to look more like my kitty besty friend Meetso. 😺

The better frog pics

I have some more frog pics taken last year. Better ones this time. And oh yeah long time no see. 
But it seems that our resident frogs decided to leave us. Why? Who knows. It could have been because it was really wet this year which gave them more leeway for choices. But then again, maybe I was a bit too nosy taking a peak at their goings on every day and sometimes several times during the day. I would be annoyed too. But then they are frogs we're talking about. Maybe they didn't like the over growth of the butter cups. If you don't know what those are, there really obnoxious but deadly beautiful flower weeds. They have a bad habit of establishing and taking over every part of your yard. Oh yeah they're poisonous too. They are known to make cows blind after they ate some. Just like the other problem we have, we also have an annoying English ivy problem. That is another issue. Anyways in the end who knows why the frogs left. I really hope they come back. I really enjoyed the enhanced and added pleasant atmosphere they brought to the pond. Maybe we'll have others that will come. 😾

Frogs in the koi pond

Yes! Only a few more weeks till spring and Feb is just about done. 
In the mean time enjoy these pics from last year I took of some green/bronze frogs that decided to spend the good seasons in our pond. I hope they comeback again this season. Last year it really was a banner year for them because we never had so many in one small pond. Only one of them I think actually did the singing. But we did have many babies as a result. I didn't see any of the tadpoles though.  They sound a bit like someone strumming on a rubber band affixed to a cardboard box. Reminds me of an old lady talking on a phone. Go and look it up. Pretty freaky when you first hear them.  

Its a bit difficult to see but if you look in the corner you can see a frog in each pic.

Ogling the bunny

More of last years pics, yeah I know. But then they're perfectly appropriate for this time of year even though we're technically still in winter. But hay its only a few months before spring. 
One day Meetso spotted his favorite subject matter. Nature and food television, only real life. Fresh rabbets happen to be one of his most favorite meals aside from smelts, tuna and shrimp. It was raining that day so you can just make out the gentle rain drops falling that the camera captured. So the lighting wasn't that great, but you can still make out all the things that were happening. 

Took a few quick pics of Meetso too. After awhile he kind of got annoyed of all the attention and wanted back in.  But then it could have been that the bunny decided to move on and then there's the rain. 
 That's our front yard on the corner of our street. A great place to find bunny's in their favourite territory. And no doubt probably lots of Pokemon Go too. 😉

 Till next time. Spring can't come fast enough.  😉😸

Holiday detour ahead.

A little post Christmas pre NewYear detour of postings. I just have some of the latest pics of my updated Nativity and some Christmas lights. Haven taken any new ones for a number of years. Not much as changed other then some new angel figures I got recently. Although very nice and flashy but in my opinion cheaper in quality. Yes you have much more flashing action but at the price of the battery power. Oh well. 

Below is a pic of our dining room table with a mini light up Christmas tree without the chandler on.

Another with changed lights.
Again with the chandler on.
Here you can see our our traditional wreath of Advent and traditional to my parents people, wheat grass grown in small containers. Normally these should be decorated with red, white and blue striped ribbons wrapped around the wheat grass. These unfortunately got a bit sickly. Probably a lack of proper watering, sun or maybe just disease. Oh well, my dad tried.

Little Christmas lights look like little "goal" lights from a hockey game. They twinkle on and off red. Its around this wreath on the window in our dining room. They make a nice starry pattern behind the curtains.

 Another mini Christmas tree. In the dinning room as well, at a corner on top of a glass table.

What our Nativity scene looks like with the main lights out. You can see the small plastic angels shining different colours. Just got the two bottom ones this year and already the batteries are being used up with all the light action they do. Unlike the better quality angels I have at the top that change their lights more slowly.

You can also see the starscape my dad has behind my royal blue starry back drop I made out of a piece I bought at the store once. I also airbrushed that a bit.
We have this displayed in our living room.
The following are various angles of our Nativity scene. Here you can see my hand made palm trees made from foam, cardboard, raffia and discarded nylon remains I collected from my previous job working on site for an inflatable company. Currently I work for my self as a freelancer. 
Any how, the human figures are original from when I was a kid. I had repainted them since the original was just poorly done. The sheep are from various place like dollar stores and fixed up.

As you can see, some of the things I made don't always turn out. That cardboard pond did not stay flat. That manger is something my dad made when I was a little girl. It lights up inside too. A few years ago my dad covered the walls with white papery tree bark. He also covered the roof with water reeds. Looks really cool.

The twin paper angels use to be a Christmas bag from one of my mother's friend who has since past away.

 Another perspective.
From a plastic sheep's view or a plastic sheep dog. 

You can see that our main and big angel, a former tree topper has lost her shine. That's alright. We'll figure out a solution eventually.
 A final look.

The end? Probably not. 
Happy NewYear every one. 🎉🎄🎊🎆🎇😺

Sit up Meetso

Yup. Long time no see. Been busy and with some good stuff for a change. 
OK Meetso first. This was taken in early spring on a gloomy rainy day. I was with Meetso on the front porch and he was ogling a bunny munching on some nice green spring grass. (showing that in the next post) Before we had that long dry summer this year. So yeah the pic is kind of dark and I could only get it so bright. 
I had him sitting up so that's why my hand got in the way of the shot. 

 More pics next post. 

Yup its been a craziness year of business and well craziness.  Both of our neighbours now hate us. But I always suspected that they probably already did so. It has something to do with having to replace the central air conditioner during the almost hottest part of July. We had no choice but to have it placed just beyond our fence instead of in the usual spot. Instead its closer to his garage. His sitting during the day spot. He totally freaked over this, basically told us to pack up and get lost. 
Even called the city on us. But the representatives didn't do a thing since we are in code. Some people. They think they're so nice but underneath they have a evil core. A real shame. Classic behavior from Godless people.  Oh yeah the other neighbour decided that she didn't like my kitty passing though her yard, on occasion peeing on her stuff and decided to hose him down right in front of me. >:( Really? I mean every day there's some animal that goes on her lawn and either takes a pee or poops on her stuff. How come she's not freaking out on those creatures? Guess its also typical of people who live by them selves, who are mad at the world and mad at God. She use to go to church when her mother. 
Someone is definitely holding a brick in their heart where her heart should be. *rollie eyes* I mean hay, I have issues, lots of hurtful issues but I don't take it out on the whole world. 

Oh speaking of storms, wow 2 tornadoes and a flood. Over all the weather was pretty dry during the "nice and warm" season but wow when it rains, it pours. One tornadoes are rare here so it was a surprise when we got one and then number two. And an a f2 of all things. We were all right but close by there was some damage. Some blown off roofs and bent steal around utilities. 
Recently well last week we got this rain storm. Lots of roads and basements in our areas got overwhelmed by water. But my mother and I still when to the mall to take care of things. We on the other hand had a bit of water in our basement. Not a big deal compared to a number of years ago when we had torrential Niagara falls like rain come down. Luckily I was up late working on a project so every one was on alert here. That was a year before Meetso came to live with us. 

We also had a perfect storm of squirrels this year. They ate almost everything. The ate all the peaches, grapes, stole tomatoes, attacked our plums and if that wasn't enough, they even tried to gnaw though my bird cages. It was the last straw and caught in succession 7 squirrels in a human-trap and then later dumped them in a forest park well stocked with their natural food. A definite world record for us in catches. We caught 4 or 5 of them last time. Guess the craziness began last fall when there was a bumper crop of acorns last fall. They sure were really fat. 

Hopefully there aren't any more perfect storms coming.  ;)

Last years flowers.

I wonder how many more years online bloging will be around. It seems every time I come here every one is always Instagraming or something. Meh.  Me I'm quite fine here, thanks. 

Anyways I'm tired from having to complete many things such as errands, preparing things, clean, being stressed out about things and est. Its Jam season after all. So I'm just going to show some nice pics of flowers I took with my old digital camera last year. Yep more leftovers. But don't worry I actually have some newer pics of my kitty and critter friends. Well actually cat dinner. But you know? ;)

Not sure what these flower weeds are but they sure were pretty growing in a field, The yellow ones mind me of snap dragons and the purple remind me of sweet pea. 
It was windy that day so the images turned out a bit blurry.
