Friday Smiles – Week 265

Hello everyone and Happy Easter. I’m joining in once again with Annie’s Friday Smiles

My new guinea pig finally has a name! He’s called Freddie.

He’s still very nervous but will come to the open cage door and take food from my fingers and sometimes get a little tickle but is still at the hiding from all loud and scary noises stage. He seems very happy though as he’s always ‘popcorning’ around the cage and he and Snowy are getting on famously.

Despite the weather being chilly again and the tiny threat of sleet and snow (again!) my daffodils are looking gorgeous out front. They are my favourite flower and i think look best when you have a whole field of them but i’m no gardener so, this will have to do

The Easter bunny still visits here even though my son is now in his 20’s and these are his favourites. Mine too come to that.

I hope the weather is good for you, have a great week with lots to smile about.

 

Friday Smiles – Week 264

After another short spell of snow we are once again looking forward to Spring happening here. I keep checking the pond for frog and toad spawn but have seen none so far.

This week has been all about pets. Hubby is sighing loudly as I introduce another guinea pig to the menagerie. My existing boar has been looking very sad and lonely since my other piggies died a year ago so i decided to get him a cage mate.

I found this little smasher

He is a short haired tri-colour and as you can see looks totally different depending on which side you are viewing him.  He’s just 12 weeks old and doesn’t have a name yet, I’m waiting for him to tell me what it is. No I’m not mad, I always like to see how a pets personality develops or maybe they do something particular that will give me inspiration for a name.

I’ve spent the last three days introducing him to Snowy and so far its going really well. Snowy is four years old now so all he wants to do is eat his veggies and get a good nap in. He snuggles down in the newbies cage and nods off, its so sweet to see them getting along and I’m hopeful they will bond okay fairly soon.

We are having a tree chopped down today in the garden with lots to do in preparation for that so i’ll sign off and say have a good week and more smiles than frowns.

If you’re new to this smiling lark then check out Annie’s lovely blog A Stitch in Time for more happy posts.
