Last Monday of the Month
It is Monday and a lovely sunny day, but cold. Our humans tells us it is -2C.
I wanted to go outside on the deck. I put my nose out of the door. Chilly. I like comfort and warmth. As you can see I am not happy. I would like the temperature to be warm enough for me to go outside, so I can chew on some blades of grass. But, the grass is so cold, even our rhododendron bush has curled up its leaves to preserve moisture.
However, I have just been told, that outdoor temperatures will eventually get much colder. It is still only Fall. Can we possibly simply skip Winter and go straight to Spring?
You would have to give up the holiday season, Cookie! You would miss the turkey that always gets baked. Remember, we always get some of it to eat.
Our humans usually have some extra special foods that taste wonderful. Last week they went to the Parade of Lights - it is the start of celebrating!
This is one of the floats in the parade, which lasted about two hours! Look at that candy house!!
It is a lovely gingerbread house. However, I heard that it is not made of gingerbread. It is very pretty though.
I hope our humans start making those buttery, delicious cookies again this year. I think they are called shortbread. Much better than gingerbread. Either way, I like to help with the clean up. I love butter.....and cream, and the holiday season!
