A snapshot sort of Sunday

Another lovely Sunday today!  It actually was quite warm out this afternoon, before the wind changed and the temperature dropped.  While most of the country is watching the rugby cup final, I’m happy to say that I’ve been busy writing blog posts for when I’m away next week!  Rugby is overrated.

Anyhow, here are some shots from this week!  Spring has definitely settled in and looks like it’s here to stay :)

Royal gala apple trree

 The little apple tree is still growing! This was taken a few days ago — his leaves are even bigger now.

New garden security

Ben and I purchased new garden security in the hopes that Russell would take notice and feel a bit more inclined to help out around the garden.  It’s really hard to find good-looking gargoyles in New Zealand that are suitable for outdoor use! :(  If anyone sees any, please let me know.

Japanese maple tree

I had to sneak this one in — I think it’s the best picture of taken of the Japanese maple so far!

Leon on the beanbag

Leon’s become king of the bean bag in the lounge.  I’m quite proud of him for overcoming his fear of the sound it makes when he climbs on it!  It still scares Damara a bit.  He’s feeling better after his surgery now, but still licking at the suture line…it looks ok, though.  No infection so far.  I can see a few stitches at one end, hopefully he doesn’t pull them out.

rolly-polly winters

Winters was a very happy cat yesterday and followed me around the front garden, plopping to roll around every few feet.  I love a happy Winters cat.

Happy Winters

That’s the toe of my shoe peeking out from the bottom of this picture!  I need to buy another pair this week, before my trip to Wellington.  The soles on this pair are just about done.

Spying on the Moosecat

Moose on the clothesline post outside my office window.  Our landlord built that little box he’s in for their kitty, Westie, who moved in with the neighbor across the street a few years ago.  When we first moved in, she would sun herself there, but Moose has claimed it for himself.  I do feel sort of bad about it, but she doesn’t live here anymore!

I’m hoping everyone’s having a wonderful weekend and sending out best wishes for the upcoming week!  I can’t wait to publish some of the posts I’ve got scheduled!

    Ah spring. Of course. We have fall on the brain here, lol. Love the gargoyle pix. It reminded me of how we were going to do tombstone shots for our Scenic Saturday feature in October but we replaced Scenic Sat w/ blogs on candy this month since UBC wants posts that weren’t just pix. Can’t wait to do it next year tho cus there are some great old tombstones in the Carolinas. Can’t think of any gargoyles around here, tho…

    I don’t see why picture posts don’t count — this post has almost 400 words in it ;)

    To be honest, not finding their prompts really great at all for me. I think the challenge is geared more towards businesses with blogs.

    There were some really lovely graveyards back home in VA that I used for photography projects in high school! Hope you have fun this Halloween!

    I am loving the new garden security! Does it make any noises or is it a sign? Also, glad to hear that Leon is doing okay.
