The Week In Seven Photos

Dear Santa, this is one of those rare years where amazing Apple and photography products are not on my Christmas wish list and instead I’m seeking assistance with a few things.

After weeks of extremely gray skies, rain and only a few snow showers, we are in desperate need of a new weatherman to guarantee a white Christmas for you and some sunshine for us so we can determine if it’s day or night.

After a year of my bicycle gathering more dust than miles or beautiful flowers, a gardener or fitness trainer would be helpful, but

luckily there is no need to worry about a dietician since I will never promise to eat my broccoli.

I sent a special letter through express mail concerning all of the dire political assistance needed since

we seem to have an extreme lack of responsible adult behavior.

One finalย request from the squirrels, they have brought to my attention a few behavioral issues with Harper and, before things get out of control, would appreciate a dog whisperer immediately.

  1. What a charming post and at the same time so very relevant. Good luck with the little squirrel chaser. And the photo with the red bird house is a stunner.

    Thank you for the glimpse into the run up to Christmas in your neck of the woods. I’m trying to get into the spirit of things – as I sit here absolutely sweltering!! ๐Ÿ˜€
    And I don’t eat broccoli either! ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. That new weather man wish is good, something we need here to know is it time to wake up or look for pyjamas.

    1. The weatherman definitely needs to go on Santaโ€™s naughty list since he keeps lying about that peak of sunshine that hasnโ€™t arrived in weeks.๐Ÿ˜

    Really funny letter to Santa, ACI, I chuckled a few times. Especially the broccoli part. Great photos, too, as always. My favorite is the bug-eyed squirrel’s expression. I have seen a lot of squirrels, but never one expressing an emotion.

    1. Thank you!๐Ÿ˜ Most squirrels take a quick look at us and run for the trees and woods, but this particular squirrel has been chattering very loudly at me for years in what appears to be very unfriendly words.๐Ÿ˜

    Great photos! I like broccoli now, but as a child not so much. If I thought back then Iโ€™d receive a tractor…
    I hope Santa is listening! Iโ€™d quite like an Everton manager – or if thatโ€™s asking for too much, then just a win this weekend? I did not watch the game on Wednesday, and it was even worse than expected.

    1. Thank you!๐Ÿ™‚ Have always believed cookies should replace vegetables on the food pyramid and bet Santa would agree!๐Ÿ˜ Maybe it was the midweek nighttime game that had both the Spurs and Everton failing to show up with the right energy. Still happy that I received an early Christmas present with Mourinho coaching the Spurs (maybe he knows something about hockey and could help my Maple Leafs!). Hope Santa delivers Everton a great replacement after firing Silva and a win! Enjoy your weekend!๐Ÿ™‚

    1. ๐Ÿ˜Thank you!๐Ÿ˜ That squirrel loves to chat with me and let me know there is no amount of peanuts that will make it appreciate my dog.๐Ÿ˜

    I will definitely cram in all the broccoli and enjoy it too! And I hope your weather wish comes true. We don’t know where we are with day merging into night. Fun post ๐ŸŽ…

    1. Thank you!๐Ÿ˜ We have finally had a few minutes of sunshine one day this week, but still no snow! Iโ€™m almost ready to promise Iโ€™ll eat one tiny (very tiny) piece of broccoli for some sunshine and snow!๐Ÿ˜
