Our newest residents

We have a few new residents with us…of a different sort. Here’s one of them.

Okay, it’s a plant, still, these living creatures are particularly hilarious. Check out this next little bundle.

I mean, what’s that? It’s a plant but it’s made of little balls of green. I think it’s just a hoot. Look at our next character.

He even smells funny! This guy smells like lemon! Hee hee!

This guy is super picky about living conditions; just your typical snooty neighbour, except its a tree.

Finally, this guy who is also super picky and thinks it’s a tree but isn’t.

There you have it, our newest little guests who, it seems, the smaller they are, the bigger their personality.

Things that made me smile today

Our new house still feels…a little strange. We’re making it ours, a little bit at a time but there are parts that are still alien and don’t feel quite like home. This is why finding things that I love and make me smile was key today. Here are some of my favourites.

The first one is a tiny bud from a fern. Isn’t it adorable?

The second one is the tiny baby of an ivy. Super cute!Then, of course, there is this majestic, awesome tree in our front yard that defies description. It’s simply incredible.

And finally, our poor delivery guy who tried to get up our insanely steep driveway and failed.

Poor, poor delivery guy. Should I admit that I laughed and laughed as the van slid down the driveway over and over?
