Neighbours Have Berries



How much for that flat?

A sure sign of summer is when the neighbours are in the fields picking their strawberries. Some people love to pick them from the fields while others just like to pick them from their dishes!

On The Way


Mad at the world


Piled up


A bit earlier.

We are so excited! We are having company come to visit us tomorrow. So we will be spending most of today racing around the house to clean everything up, chase out the field mice and shoo away any lingering hunters. I just wish we could get Gerome to stop staring out the window and give us a hand. It's like he has a chip on his shoulder or something. He makes it seem like there is just so much snow here, when if he looked out the other windows he would see there is hardly any left with this rain that we are getting today.

Still Safe From The Hunt
















On guard for thee

Almost two months have gone by and of us are safe from the mighty hunters. It seems that hunters go foraging for moose like myself in September but as if to say that is not enough they go foraging again in November for deer. Deer look an aweful lot like myself which means I still have to hide out in the house here in the burg. I don't mind being inside all this time as I have lots of friends here to keep me company. Pig is doing a fine job watching out for the hunters, but I know that they are close by. Today I heard a shot fired in our back field and a mighty orange man drove by our window on a four wheeling vehicle. I hope that everyone in the back field is okay.

Safe From The Hunt















Can't get us here!

Hi. We are just having a great time in the living room watching all of the mighty hunters wander all over the fields looking for moose. What a shame. Silly hunters, thinking I would be outside in the bushes when I could be here having a great time and staying warm.

The Pile Up



Eddy thought it was a good idea to clean out the barn before the barn collasped and swallowed up everything inside. Dorothea agreed and with that a pile was started. The pile has gotten quite large and spread along the backside of the barn in quick fashion.

The Way Home?

Well, I am going to be alone for a while again! It has been great to have the company. Dorothea is leaving today for the long flight home, which is confusing when you have so many places to call home. I will count the days until when you all come back over the pond and see me. Meanwhile I might go out and help the guys work on the big barn. There is such a mess out back to clean up.

Building Bee


Framing the peak.


Piecework for the framing.

Things are coming along. One building almost up and another to go. Just hope it doesn't rain tonight. Moose don't smell pretty when they get wet and this roof is still leaky!
