Steve's wild Christmas!
Mmmm the smell of Christmas baking this morning. Wait... what? I'm not baking anything! Yet this morning in the house there was a definite odor like cookies baking. I checked the stove and furnace, nothing on or burning. It didn't smell like fire, it definitely smelled like cookies or muffins baking. I was starting to wonder if mom or my grandmothers were trying to send a message. Finally... d'oh!!! I figured it out, I had moistened some cat food in a dish with water and a little canned cat food for extra flavor, then I placed it on the heating grate to warm it up. Smelled like cookies, unfortunately it certainly didn't taste like cookies... no I didn't try it, I'm just joking.
My wild Christmas, okay relax everyone, not "that" kind of wild. Here some pics I want to share.
Yesterday when I got up, I could see this impression in the snow, there were no tracks leading to or from it, clearly a Christmas Angel had descended from above and came to rest upon the snow.
The great apple caper, back in October I kept finding crab apples all around the house, I couldn't figure out what was carrying the apples to the house and dropping them. A deer would eat them if they put it in their mouth but it definitely would not carry them. A raccoon would carry it but they would chew it up or at least put little teeth marks on it. Finally I saw the culprit and watched it one day.
I was telling a friend about how a deer head suddenly fell from the sky one day. I didn't know if Santa had run into a helicopter or was it deernado, Armageddon or what was happening. Suddenly a large shadow drifted over the house and all was revealed.
Speaking of deer, they are always around, I don't even notice them that much as a novelty, they are pretty though.

And.....? This was disturbingly fascinating!
Ohhhhhhhhh I love the fox. As you know i have several here. I'd have a pet fox if i could. Several.
that was what I used to think when I was young and saw the imprint of wings in the snow. Strange. You have an abundance of wonderful wildlife in your yard.
Deedles... disturbing, really? What could possibly be disturbing about a half eaten deer head falling from the sky?
Maddie I would love to have a fox as well... except I want the two legged kind! ;)
Leanna, yes but I'm surrounded by forest so not unexpected. The only thing I really don't like is bears hanging around in dry years.
Turkey's will attack. They are not nice birds. And it may not have been an owl, perhaps a Christmas alien made that mark in the snow. And Foxes are a delight. I wish I knew more.
I knew the owl print I've seen one here
Happy Christmas dearheart x
happy hollydayz to you and your wild life, steven!
You know, for a while I wondered what Maddie saw in you. Of all the guys (muscular, young, rich) he had at his disposal, why was he so intent on marrying you? Now it is clear. Maddie wants access to all that nature. Bald eagles and endless winters are good selling points for marriage. Too bad he does not know you are planning to move to the big city, where all the wildlife that is available consists of bureaucrats.
Very interesting about the owl print. I've never seen one before.
I once held an owl at a display and was amazed at how light they are and so silent in flight.
Love the Fox and deer photos too. I used to see both near our home but houses are being built on the land all round and so they've been displaced. Sad.
May I wish you seasons greetings and a happy and healthy new year. Xx
Let me know if you see three men on camels.
If you think cat food smells like baking, then you are far, far gone, my friend. Sober up!
Dave out here turkeys are still wild, a turkey that attacks is a dead turkey so only the smart ones breed. Just stepping out the door sends them running. Okay yes it was actually an alien but the men in black told me to say an owl. Ummm... you should probably expect a visit from them today. O.O
Happy Christmas John! It will be Christmas for you when you read this I believe.
Anne Marie, same to you and hubby! Do everything Maddie would do... hahaha! Well you probably already made the naughty list so you have nothing to lose now!
Lurker, with friends like you...? Maddie loves me for the same reason you love and obsess over me, now stop playing mentally rough with me because I know it's a coping mechanism to keep yourself from getting too attached to me. That pic of me is the face you will see when you finally give in and we make sweet sweet man on man love together.
Christina, thank you and I return the happy wishes for you and your family!
Richard, you mean three guys hooked on cigarettes? No camels but I had a close call last night driving home, Santa nearly had seven reindeer this Christmas.
Debra, maybe my cooking is bad! No seriously it was the dried cat food and they make that with too much floor in it, so warmed up with water makes it smell like cookies.
Love the owl imprint pictures - amazing.
Have a very Happy Christmas.
Hey JP! Happy Christmas to you and a certain hot Spanish chef! ;D
The merriest of Christmases to you Steven. I hope Santa was good to you. Especially if he looked anything like what Sixpence posted. And enjoy the wildlife in your backyard. It’s spectacular!
HuntleyBiGuy, I hope you had a great day today, thank you for the Christmas wishes.
