Who is looking in your door?

I am a very lucky girl. A. because I love to have Tima looking through my door and B. because Tane cannot climb the steps – yet! Anyway he is too busy in the frog garden, he has discovered some unharvested beets and has a pink nose and lipsticked lips from digging them up and scoffing them,

Queenie makes Elsie look bigger somehow.

Boo is actually shaping up to be a pretty good cow dog. ‘Course he would be even better if the cows took any notice of him at all.

I must remember to put the lid on the feed bin.  Pania is such an opportunist.


How is that for an angel in the barn? Still stalking Godot.

I have built a staircase of the new straw right up to the loft, so I can climb up and sit on the bales and add another level of Views. Boo is thrilled, now he can see what is making all that noise up in the loft.

But the only shot I got was this one. Thwarted again.


Sheila and Hop-and-Pop-Poppy had their first walk since Sheila hurt her hoof. Sheila and I walked slowly while Poppy flung herself to and fro but once Sheila got into the grass she swung into action and munched as fast as she could. She loves to graze. piggie-in-the--middle-072


Good morning. Still warm and cloudy. The lack of sunlight is becoming a little depressing however the lack of wind and the daytime temperatures in the high 30’s is great! What were they doing this time last year?  And the year before the year before? (Scroll down if you pop over, there is a little Christmas story in there – you remember it .. the one with the Christmas decorations. – it still makes me laugh.)

I hope you all have a lovely day.

Your friend on the farmy,


ps. if you have a few minutes to spare pop in and read (or write) in the Join Us page – on the menu line.  It really is a lovely page because it is in there that you have introduced yourselves to the other members of The Fellowship. I love that page.

  1. Celi,
    I haven’t forgotten you! Never! I’ll explain all that later! Sitting here since 3am writing Christmas cards ~ so just saw Timi & Kitty looking at me and crazy Boo getting me activated for the day!! Loved all the kitties and Boo being in his greatest loving acts of Nanny!! and glad Sheila is up to getting out and eating Christmas munches!! Luv to you and all of our farm buddies! Carol

  2. How long do you suspect it will take before Sheila is 100% again? Love you and the farmy! xx

  3. I wish I had a Tima at my window…. That’s a calendar shot if ever I saw one. I’m glad you and the Farmy creatures are a bit warmer for a while.

  4. The lack of proper daylight is getting to me too. Constant foggy rain soaked greyness make the day seem colder than it actually is. Thankfully we have now passed the solstice, so hopefully the minutes will soon become hours of extra daylight.

    Tima looks like she washed her face before coming to visit you. Glad Queenie and Elsie have settled in like old friends. Boo seems to have turned a corner towards the large animals, it would help make your life easier. Sheila looks happy to be out and about once more.

    Just had an amusing thought: All the Farmy animals hanging their stockings for Santa. I wonder what they would ask for?

  5. Great photos yet again! Tima at the door and Boo’s tusche on the straw bales. And I do love the animals hanging their stockings thought. Hmmm.

  6. Boo is probably looking for a spare litter of kitties to nanny, and Queenie must be thrilled to have a friend in her size 🙂 I would love a Tima at my door! Laura

  7. Ah you have to love beets… natures rouge for lips and cheeks! How lucky to have Boo as the farmy private-eye. With all of the mayhem and antics going on you need a good investigator on the premises! Happy day to you Miss C. It’s cloudy here too, (sigh) it’s been like this for a couple of weeks. That’s just not fitting for Southerners you know!

  8. Ooh, thank you: three Farmy posts for the price of one. I loved the Christmas story, though I cringe for your embarrasment!
    Lights are twinkling round the patio doors, the tree looks OK-ish in front of them, parcels are wrapped under the tree and the cake is awaiting its coat of white – I didn’t want to do it too soon, as the marzipan can stain through if it’s not quite dry.

  9. I just popped over to see what you were talking about…did you ever go to that house again? Oh my! oh my!
    What a laugh!
    I love,,, no, absolutely adore your blog. Every day it brightens my life, it makes me smile and can make me sad, but for whatever reason it makes me appreciate all that you do..farming is not an easy life to choose…..my brave lady! Have A Happy Chrstmas

  10. Robert looked over and we both burst out laughing at those two sweet and silly back door faces. Lovely way to start our morning. 😀

  11. Oh Celi, you made me laugh early in the morning before I had my my coffee when I read your story about the jewelry. I have put my foot in my mouth more than once , like asking when the baby was due when there was no baby? Oops!!! Christmas is such a mixed bag of emotions some very good and some hidden away. I’m leaving for the mountains where there is no Internet. I hope that your holiday is full of joy, lots of sunshine and happy moments. Thank you for entertaining me with your wonderful blog this year.
    Hugs and love

  12. You are feeling better. Your words and pictures say it for you. Boo’s bum. Great calendar pic. He looks so determined to find the elusive sound maker. Tima at the door. You are lucky. That is a sweet face. Hope all is well today on the farmy.

  13. The kitchen door to the family Upstairs is perpetually smeared from Max’s nose as he watches them in their kitchen. So far, they’ve resisted the urge to let him in but it’s only a matter of time. If and when they do, they won’t be able to say that I didn’t warn them.
    Another day with a sunless sky. Today they said it’s been 33 minutes of sun in 10 days. This has to be some sort of record, unfortunately.
    May your tomorrow be sunny, Celi. 🙂

  14. Tima’s sweet face looking in the door would definitely make one’s day. She’s such a cutie. Boo looks like he’s smiling out there “working the cows.” I guess you’ll have to send him to the loft with the camera! Silly boy!
