Follow Up Friday: Noel, then Sofie, more Noel, and Leaves

11 Oct

Today is Follow-up Friday hosted by Jodi from Heart Like A Dog.  This is where we review the week behind so that we can launch into the week ahead (or something like that).

I thought I would be gone by now, but, snafus being as they are, I have not been able to get my Chinese Visa because of a ton of different issues, and now it looks like I will be home for another 2 weeks.  That gives me 2 more weeks to enjoy the fall, when it stops raining, and to be with my family and furries.

Black and White Sunday was a rerun of my favorite Noel picture.  We have these silly cardboard things on the ends of heavy gage wire, that kind of look like bugs.  It was just such a perfect moment.  Duh?

Monday Mischief was our last swim in our friend Amy’s pool.  And, boy were we lucky we did that because the weather turned to freezing rain and won’t stop.  One day summer – next day winter – around here.  Sofie is doing fine after her tangle with the rose bush.  The tip of her ear is a little ragged, but she will live.

Mom! Louise has all the toys and she isn't sharing.

I was so consumed with arrangements for the China trip that I forgot to post Tuesday’ s Tails (sorry), but Wordless Wednesday was Noel again, this time hiding behind the cactus in the kitchen window.  Since she is the Christmas cat (yes, we adopted her at Christmas time, and she came with the name Noel) – I decided she is a Christmas Catactus.  (MOL)

Thankful Thursday brought to mind all the smells and sounds of the fall season.  Even though we had torrential rain from the backend of a Hurricane named Karen.  Lots of Followers commented how much they love fall too.

That’s it for the week. Thanks for playing along with us.  Check out the hop below and you can go play with others.

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    Sofie! Your head is the perfect size for that step. It fits right in to watch over what is going on!

    Love and licks,

      You are right Cupcake. That vantage point gives me 2 big advantages: I can watch Nine very closely and prevent him from coming up the stairs and I can block Mommy from going past me, so that she is forced to notice me, and give me a cookie. – Sofie Bear

      Thanks Speedy. Weeks seem, speedy, if you know what I mean. Much more to do than there is week.

    Forgot about the need for a visa, we have heard that it can take some time. Hopefully you can get on your way in a couple weeks.

      Yes Emma, this is one of the most complicated travel processes I have ever been through. Last time I was in China (’95) I was a tourist and it was mostly handled by the group I went with. And, of course, they changed Visa rules on Sept 1. Looks like leaving around Oct 26 now (maybe…).

    Thanks so much for joining the blog hop, what a great recap! Thankfully Karen bypassed us, I don’t think I could stand it starting so soon.

    Have a great week.
