Here at the Applegate household, we are trying to obtain just a little bit of peace.
However, new feline addition Lil' Bit is making peace in the cat kingdom a thing of the past. Despite being fixed, he hasn't left behind his tomcat ways of confrontation.
The goal here being that everyone goes where they are supposed to. Dogs go outside; cats use the litter box and no one "pees on carpet."
The goats "pees everywhere." That is why they live in their own house outside.
Cardinals, blue jays and even the goldfinches in their drab winter plumage generate some much needed color for the winter landscape.
A clear glass ball used for photography quickly becomes a snow globe filled with trees and sky.
Hopefully Lil' Bit will be able to make peace with the other felines of the house.
Meanwhile, I will have to head to the woods to find a little bit of peace from Lil' Bit's antics.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.
That's just the nature of things 'round here.
