Snow zoomies and a birthday

Happy birthday to my mom! She is fortyeleven years old. Okay, she's really more than that but that's as high as I can count. We had pancakes for breakfast, better than a cake! Part of my present is keeping her warm.

We had snow this week, a whopping 2 inches so everything was closed Friday and Saturday. Sounds silly but there was a lot of ice because of the low temperatures. We had plenty of food and firelogs. No trees fell which is rare for this land so my mom continued to have internet and electricity. Even the sun is shining. It's a pretty day for her birthday with a high of 27.

We enjoyed the snow. My mom made a snow zoomies video.

Please, everyone stay warm and safe, or, if you're in the southern hemisphere, please stay cool and safe!

Zoomies are fun but snow zoomies are even better!

Stay safe in that snow and ice, we had a lot of ice here recently which was awful.

Ohh...ok. When you said your mom made a snow zoomies video I was watching for her! ;)

Happy birthday! :)

glad you stayed safe and warm through the ice. We hear it's supposed to warm up a bit soon. Can't wait.

And a belated Happy Birthday to your mom! Wow, fortyeleven years old! We can't count that high either. But maybe that isn't as old as we think since those are human years.

Hi River...
Sorry for my long-long-long absence.

Wish you a very very Happy New Year...and your mom a Happy Belated Birthday:)

It's too cold (everywhere, including here) and so things've been moving at a slow pace. I hope the weather warms up soon:)

Licks and wags,

A very happy belated birthday wish for your mom:) I think that your b/day present for her is a very thoughtful one, River. I huge, slurpy lick on your cute snout:)

Don't worry...things will improve all around the world and your mom will be less busy - and then you'll be able to blog to your heart's content:)

And...Mercury thanks you for the compliment. She isn't a professional artist (she contributes to our bread and my chicken through writing,) and so she started this blog to stay happy:) She cherishes every compliment she receives on her drawing - so a big THANK YOU.

Licks n wags,
