Temperature Drop Thursday

Yesterday morning we awoke to our first snows. ANd observe who was out there on perimeter patrol.....
My light pawprints led across the snowy wilderness.
Sampo couldn't resist chasing Aila outside.
 Observe her deep tracks. Such a contrast to mine - hehehehe.

Wednesday Feasting

The other day Äiti came back from posti with a HUGE parcel from the US of A. It was too light to be May Ling from the Katnip Lounge, and too peaceful to be Spitty but it was from their Staff, and for us. There was NOTHING in it for Äiti. Result!  Yes, indeed, it as full of jars of delicious goodness -Gerbers!!!!!  Äiti was trying to get us to share it out (yeah right) so came up with this arrangement.....
Well, that's about as sharing as we all get. Risto, Roosa and Lewis were all given samples on separate platters. 
The next day all jars were licked clean and scattered hither and thither. Oh, it was a mighty fine night.
We thank you, our wonderful blogging buddies. I am hoping to send you Aila in return but no way would she make it over any Wall.

Tuesday Tailio

For once the burmese were not hogging the black beddie on the Pillar of Power. Ruska was looking very comfy, squishing a mighty mancat to one side. 
Yes, Mirsku was pushed to the side!  No wonder there was no room for the tailio which was dangling very artistically.

Monday Musings

The leaves have fallen, the plants are dying and Äiti has taken down the outside wall shelves. Here is a panorama of part of the Catio. She has decided to leave the branches up. 
It was quite chilly outside so most of us were snoozing in the warm. Mirsku came out to chew some grass while it is still there - Äiti better start sprouting some for us indoors soon.
He had a good sniff around: under the tarps there are good mousie hiding places so we hope they will be filled over winter. The Rock of Norway has been moved a little but is still doing a fine job.
Pekka was posing on the table.
And here we have some of the remains of our kissanminttu.   Each year we are hopeful some will survive through the winter, but just to make sure Äiti does save the seeds every year for a fresh crop.
Mesi went to check it out but Äiti didn't place the pots very conveniently. She says they'll be moved when the snows come.

Sunday Shivering

For some strange reason, the Nekkids are still sneaking outside. Äiti was sat quaffing tea and Veikko came to sit on her knee, and to do an impression of an armadillo.
Not long after, he was curled up in his favourite beddie (crocheted by Mom Trish) and snoring.
Much better than being outside, wethinks.
