Anything but Dull Around Here~

Well, my mom finally came home from her long journey…

and winter keeps flitting in and out,

BUT life has been anything but dull around here!

My sister came all the way from Washington, DC to visit me!

She stood up for me…

admired my fine feathers…

and we had some “girl talk”…



sad farewells~

I have to put up with all the B – O – Y – S…


the peacocks are in the barn now, so I don’t have to deal with THEM!

Especially that Esmeralda!

The garden is looking barren

and a strange bird is hanging around the yard.

My dad tried to feed him and he ran away but

he came back today.

He has a white ring around his neck and makes a weird sound.

My mom and her friends have been going crazy making things

and decorating lately.

She even made this ornament of me!

The grandchildren came to visit… they like me…

and disagree over who should hold me…

not sure how I feel about this!

PHEW!   I was glad when they left!

Lots of people came to visit us this weekend… the first thing they saw

was a sign with MY PICTURE on it!

My mom tells me that Candy Looker painted it

because she thinks I’m PRETTY!

Father Christmas came to visit… some people thought he was more interesting than ME!

Some people thought the D – O – G was more interesting than ME!!!



Doesn’t he know that feathers are for BIRDS???

SO, every time the door was left open


just to REMIND THEM who

is PRINCESS around HERE!

My mom let me sit on her shoulder


have a sip of her mulled cider in the Garden Shop

where I hung out all evening with my Auntie Celeste

until I started biting people.

My mom decided I was tired so

she brought me to my dad’s woodshop to sleep.

One the way we passed the dyeing pots…

which are pretty SCARY at night!


wouldn’t come down until she put me on my roost!

Some people saw me and thought it was funny, but I didn’t!

The grandchildren came back, but lucky for me, they liked HIM more than ME!

I snuck in the house again

and Auntie Celeste let me visit.

I know how to make her laugh!

More people came to visit… Karan (Richmond House Antiques) said she isn’t afraid of my biting…

since she has chickens at home!

BUT my mom put me back outside anyway.

It was fun to see everyone, but I’m glad to have some time to myself.

I snuck in the house again

and helped my dad on the computer.

He wasn’t so sure he wanted my help, especially when my claws slid down his scalp…

so my mom took me away!

But first, she gave me kisses

and let me pose in front of the Christmas tree~

Well, that’s it for now!  We’ve got to plant garlic before the snow flies.

Until next time~
