    When I was a kid, I always got sick at Christmas – too much excitement and sugar ;-D Hope Baby is feeling better.
    Love that beautiful wasp’s nest in among the oak leaves – a true work of art. Had to laugh at the Spy’s expression holding it! eek!
    It has been a mild Christmas here as well, almost all the snow is gone. Winter will return in a day or two. No more hammocks or bare feet! ;-)

    Lovely hornests nest! We made bug boxes here and were amazed to see that they are occupied! Native wasps have been using them to hatch out their babies and quite a few of the lovely drilled bamboo holes are full of grub and the ends stuffed with mud and leaves :). We have things here called paper wasps. They make awesome paper nests underground that can go for metres and they start out the season needing sweet things (like blackberries and cans of soda ;) ) and end the season hunting for meat. We buy our dogs meat (steak) in bulk and freeze it in portions and so we leave it out to defrost in the day and when it has defrosted in the afternoon they get fed. In the summer, when the wasps tastebuds have changed, we can always find little chewed out holes in the bag where the wasps have been thieving the dogs dinner ;)

    Poor baby :( (but that room is nice and clean ;) ). Dexie looks to be laying in wait to catch that deer doesn’t she? Good luck with that Dexie, I am sure he won’t be able to see you in your most excellent hiding spot ;). Great help in the garden too. Another reminder why Earl and Bezial are NOT allowed in Sanctuary ;). Most people would see yellow cherry tomato skins. I see yellow cherry tomato futures! :)

    How did you get Dexie into that hammock?! She must be related to Earl who loves to get himself into tight spaces and then needs help to get out. We find him in the wheelbarrow, in the wood box and under the bench on the deck regularly ;)

    Glorious happy dog and kids, glorious blue sky and glorious cedars. What a world you live in Ms Spy :)
