Changes are a-comin’.

Wow! It really has been awhile, hasn’t it? Our Dear Author (DA) has graduated from graduate school (last December actually… in 2015). Now she’s trying to get some experience in the library field so that she can get hired by someone! That’s the fortune of being plastic… no need to work!

Also, DA is moving! We shall try to take and post pictures of our new place once things get settled. So we haven’t been able to travel as much as we once did, and hopefully, things will pick up once again after everything has calmed down some. DA is trying to get involved with the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), which could mean more activities for us to stowaway to! Stay tuned!

We had a brief snowstorm a few days ago, and pictures were taken!


Maybe as the winter continues, there will be more snowfall and more opportunities for play!

We shall try to update things as they happen. Hopefully, the absences won’t be quite as long…

We thank you for your patience.

Ready for Spring yet?

As much of the rest of the country has already figured out by now, this Winter has been a fairly harsh one. In our area, it’s been especially jarring since it doesn’t get as cold usually as it has been (or so we’ve been told).


Jasper: Brrrr, it looks cold out there.

Alice: Honey, we’re vampires. We aren’t affected by the cold.

Jasper: …

The humans are trying to stay warm as much as they can, which means many blankets and drinking of hot drinks, such as cocoa and tea.



So we hope everyone is staying warm and remember, Spring is just around the corner!!



Wow. Even the pool is frozen over…

Winter Wonderland

Looking back on the previous post, I posted about the sprinkling of snow we received a few weeks ago.

Well, it’s a bit different now:


To be honest, we don’t know how long it will last, so we decided to take the opportunity for some fun!



Snow angels!



Considering our previous climate, and the fact we’re unaffected by the weather, traipsing about in just short sleeves and impractical shoes may seem a bit absurd to some, but it was great fun!



We even went to the VA to tromp around a bit.


It can be a sticky though, but not enough for snowballs, alas…

We also hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving as well!
