A Little Christmas decoration...

It has been a little hard to get into the Christmas Spirit this year but there is much to be grateful for. Happily my Dad is out of the hospital after nearly 2 months recovering from a fall/hip surgery and rehab.

I am going to see him tomorrow and I am spending a few days to help him adjust to his new suite and routines. It will be great to have some family time and to lend a hand...

Spent some time today cleaning up my office porch and made a Holly display in an old copper boiler plus added some flowers we picked up, oh so nice! A 21 inch maple leaf and a poor picture of Pookie.

Some shots of recent high water taken at the local pub.

Mushrooms on firewood, a nest in the holly and our Holly.

Buddy after the groomer and new decorations for the doors.

Cheery leaves, Middlenatch on a blustery day, reflecting ducks (mallards) and Taz in his new spot.

A palliated woodpecker (not my photo), a better Pookie photo and some garden colour.

I hope that you are able to be with family and friends over the Christmas season. Merry Christmas everyone!


  1. The Man Cave pic and the Maple Leaf are my favorites - IF I had to choose!!!
    Merry Christmas to you and yours!!! Hope you are enjoying the season as much as I am!!!
    Praise God your dad is better - as is my mother! Makes the holidays SO much happier!!!

  2. Fun post. I learned a lot about you and your critters. Love all the door decoration, holly. The high water is impressive! Happy Happy!

  3. A wonderfulseries of colourful mosaics. Great Christmas decorations and adore the animal photos.

  4. The high water level is a concern in Ontario as well. We get a pile of snow and the temperature turns mild within a few days and it melts causing flooding. Hopefully later this month it will stay cold.
    I'd like to know what variety of maple tree has leaves that big, it's awesome.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  5. The flooding waters always give me pause, scary. Glad your dad is doing better. Sweet looking pet favorites~

  6. I love your critters, especially the cute Buddy. Cool shot of the Pileatedd Woodpecker. Pretty Christmas decorations.. Great collection of images and mosaics.. Have a happy week!

  7. To see so many critters and lovely flowers....they look beautiful against the holiday decorations.

  8. Hi Rob,

    Your father has a wonderful son! You. It's good that you care for him and let him know that you care.

    Buddy sure looks spiffy in his neck tie. I have a cloth Christmas tree made out of the very same fabric!

    Love you blue. Thanks for playing today.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  9. Cute critters and decorations! Healthy wishes for your father and his recovery. Thanks for sharing your reflections on Make It Monday.

  10. Lots of great shots Rob! Glad you can help your dad out. It is tough getting older but it is wonderful when we have good phamily to help us along. ENjoy your week and I love the pet shares too.
