Serene Sunday Scenes

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags, here with a miscellaneous bunch of photos of things we did this week that brought us a lot of serenity!  Let's cut with the chit-chat and look at the pix!  Ready?!?!

Mom still isn't 100% up to snuff, so I helped her take it easy.

"Stay here, Mom.  We should watch another episode of Dr. Who."

Not only did we get in some quality regular TV time, but there was a lot on Birdie TV this week:

"Mom?!?  There's a whole pack of little Juncos in the Ash tree!"

We got some nice all-family walks in - even though it was cold, gloomy, and drizzly out:

"Tell me this isn't great!  Isn't this great, Cam?"
"It's wonderful, Mags!"

Now, I found this next photo on Mom's iPhone.  It's weird, because the collar looks a WHOLE lot like Cammie's collar, but I have NEVER seen that super-squishy-looking piggy before!

Someone who looks like Cam and a pink piggy

Mom must have cheated on us with some other Sibe.  One with a collar that matches Cammie's.    And then took a picture of her.  Because I HAVE NEVER SEEN THAT PINK PIG BEFORE!!!  Funny, when I asked Cammie about it, she just started whistling and walked off.  Hmm.

Anyway ... here we are being super sweet on an all-family walk:

"Hello, Cammie.  How about a little ..."


Like I didn't know that was her and that pink pig!!!

Just kidding.  I was just playing with her.  I'm happy for her and her Pink Pig.

... Speaking of things I'd like to rip to shreds, here's Cam in a serene moment with our pumpkin:

Cammie, with the pumpkin, in the living room

No, I'm not really granted much access to the pumpkin, either.  Fear not, though - here I am playing ball with Mom:

"Great throw, Mom!  You want it back?  Chase me!!!"

We had tons of fun playing Siberian Rules Fetch.  We did that in the house a lot this week, since it's so super cold outside.

Mom is learning more cookie-icing skills, and gave them a go this week.  Here's what she came up with:

Mom's cookies

It made her feel serene to have a creative outlet - and it made Dad serene to eat some of Mom's "work".  We helped Mom by doing this:


Yep. Total serenity!

I hope your week was as serene as ours!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh my word what a wonderful series of serenity. I feel so calm and relaxed...better than Cat-yoga.
    We have a place here in NC called Carolina Cookie Co. I must tell you your mom's cookies and icing are giving the CCC a run for their money.
    I love the heart shapes.
    We hope mom feel 100% very soon,
    Hugs madi your bfff

  2. Those were great pics but we gotta tell you... you are being cheated on this toy thing! Put your paw down, demand equal access to chew things.

  3. Pink Piggy does not look familiar to US either... Wonder what is up with this ???? Your Mom Cheated on you? OMD those COOKIES are BEAUTIFUL... WAY to pretty to EAT... NO... WAIT... furget that last pawt...

  4. A sweet napping pic! We have a pumpkin like that and just love it. Mom is amazed it has not been made into pumpkin pie BOL! Your grass is very green!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

    Murphy & Stanley

  5. Pink Piggie?? Nope, we know nothing about it *wink wink*
    Your mom's cookies are absolutely beautiful! How we wish we could reach our paws through the puter screen!

  6. We thought that paw looked familiar:) One day, Maggie, you will get to play with that pink piggie and the pumpkin - one day, but we have no clue when one day will come:)

    Hope Mom is better tomorrow - it's been too long now.

  7. Those are all very serene pictures. We think you will have to take your pawrents on lots of walks if your mom keeps making all those cookies without giving any away. BOL!

  8. I feel more serene just reading this postie. Really.

  11. What a great week in photos! And wow! Your mom's cookie decorating talent is SUPER! Those cookies look ALMOST to good to eat...almost. BOL

  12. WOW, those cookies look amazing!! And I'm puzzled about the pig too... Maybe it's an older picture from back before you were in the house??
