Camera Critters

Frosted dog

The cooler weather has given Oscar a new lease of life.

He’s always ready to play a game of ball…

Look at those ears flapping in the autumn sunshine —

“We have lift off!” they seem to be saying.

Another fun game is hiding in the leaves

And hoping I won’t be able to find him.

(We’ll be out in the autumn sun, so please excuse me if I don’t get around to visiting you all this weekend.)


Smell the flowers

Summer is here with its sun, its rain

And its beauty.

Time to enjoy the present, be outside more

And smell the flowers.

(This means I might not be able to visit you at the weekend.

But, as always, your warmth and comments are always much appreciated.)

Singing in the sun

My daughter is singing at The Royal Wedding today, Saturday, with her class.

(Princess Madeleine, second daughter of the King and Queen of Sweden, is marrying New Yorker, Chris O’Neill.)

Yesterday, she was all geared up for the dress rehearsal

And in a happy mood.

Of course, Oscar had to escort her to the station

To make sure she got to the church on time.

As you can imagine,it’s a busy weekend so please excuse me if I don’t get round to visiting you.

UPDATE: If you’re interested in seeing the class’ performance, then you can see a short video here.


Putting winter on ice

The lake is now water

And the cold spring is just waiting to burst into flower and warmth (sometime soon, I hope).

But before that, I wanted to post one of my favourite photos from this winter.

The purple sunset over the iced over lake

And Oscar looking majestic.

Tentative spring

It’s still cold here

And there’s ice on the lake.

O and flower

But Oscar took me for a walk

To find the first tentative signs

Of spring.

I’m fighting a heavy cold so please excuse me if I don’t get round to visiting you.


Snow face

No matter who you are

Or what you look like,

A bad hair day can be much improved

By adding some extra sparkle and snow!

I’m off to Paris with my daughter for a few days, so please excuse me if I don’t visit you.

The pink dog

You’ve heard of pink elephants, haven’t you?

Let me introduce you to Oscar,

The pink dog!

This was taken during a very pink sunrise early one morning

When my world was … well…

Tickled pink.

Sugar face

May your days be sprinkled with glitter

Sugar, laughter

And joy —

With a dash of magic and snowflakes

For good luck.

Oscar sends you all licks and love!

Off leash

Exuberance and joy are just other words for beauty.

(And having a huge snowfall really helps the magic too.)

Yippee

Playtime!

Guess what happened this week?

It finally snowed and snowed

And snowed!

Playtime

Even in the horizontal, whip-the-snow-in-your-face storm

Oscar just didn’t want to come into the house.

Look at those eyes pleading

For just five more minutes of snowtime!
