If we were meeting for coffee today you couldn't help but notice that November is almost out the door and on December 1, I've been told, we can start turning on our outdoor Christmas lights. The elves have been busy at work outdoors decorating
and I'll show you some shots next week of everything lit up.
If we were meeting for coffee today I would tell you that Riley and I have been up to some more shenanigans around town
I would ask you if you are squeamish because if you are, I wouldn't tell you about our Breakfast with the Lynx event on the weekend at our Ecomuseum. We got to prepare breakfast toys for these lovely animals
and hide them in their enclosure. It took some creative thinking how to put squash and cabbage leaves together with recently deceased chicks, super worms (like mealy bugs but much, much bigger and quicker), raw fish and sausage casing. I'm not sure which the lynx liked the most, but this chick-in-a-swing was the most popular with the adults, although I had a hard time being cavalier about it myself.
And unless you are ready to call PETA on me, these animals are carnivores and because they are not able to be returned to the wild, they need to be provided for.
If we were meeting for coffee today I would show you the caribou at the ecomuseum
and ask you if you don't think she looks like she could have been Separated at Birth from my old girl.
I would tell you that after last week's teasing bit of snow, we managed to make the perfect snowball
and that I found a moth in the bathtub
which kind of freaked me out more because it is November than because there was a flying insect indoors.
And before we trotted over to Amy's Lucky Number 13, I couldn't help but show you the wooden wolf head we found while scouring for sticks down by the water.
Riley wore it on his head all the way home. It's a truly fabulous piece and it will find it's way into my work at some point. So thanks for stopping by and hopefully by next week I'll no longer be contagious.
