Prairie Poodle

Hello dear readers!

I have some pretty exciting news to share! I've been busy writing a children's book series centered around Curly, Joshy and Blitzy, using real photos of course! Now, my first book in the series is already for sale on Amazon! The name of the entire series is Prairie Poodle  and Book 1 is titled A Turtle Named Sam .
If you're interested in purchasing it, please click here . I've already written a couple more books in that series so those will be for sale soon!

And in Claridge news, Oom Peet and Tannie Andra were in Canada but are now heading out to the US. The services will begin on November 17th until December 4th in Tulsa, Oklahoma .

I think Joshy is trying to start a new routine in our house. I usually give them dinner at 16:30 but recently, he has been coming to the kitchen at 15:00 and even earlier on some days! He insists on getting his dinner then! I have to keep to the old routine though but it's so sad to send him away at that time!
Blitzy still loves her scratcher and also plays with her toys on top of it.
Lassie, Kenzo and Sniffles came to visit Curly the other day, they are so sweet but boisterous at times!

I usually set an end of the year pageview goal so, do you guys think we can reach 5 000 pageviews before 2016 ends? Yes? Then let's go for it!

Sorry that this post is short but enjoy the photos and have a blessed weekend!

God bless,
Sele'ha Mikhaila

Avocados, Amigurumi & An Addition to the Deck

Hi everyone!

It's been quite a while, hasn't it? It was a really busy time for us here and that's why I couldn't update the blog recently. I do apologize! I have also been writing short stories on the sideline, the editing takes time!

Anyway, Renate is going back to Germany for 3 months and I decided to crochet some stuff for her little sister and her. I made a mini Hello Kitty amigurumi toy for Miriam, Renate's sister. I've really enjoyed doing amigurumi!! For those of you who are unaware, Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting or knitting little animals, people or even inanimate objects. I love it because you can make literally anything! I've uploaded the photo of the purse I crocheted Renate a few weeks ago. Click here to view

Anyway, we had a bag of avo's and as soon as we got it, Curly wanted some! She LOVES avocados! I know that it's not good for dogs BUT I researched it and you can give them very little as long as it doesn't contain any of the skin or the seed. Kenzo and Sniffles came the other day and together with Curly, they looked for avocados off the tree!
A while ago, we transplanted some rose trees, it was on my Dad's birthday, remember? Well, they are flowering and the roses are gorgeous! I love the colors.
A week or two ago, Caleb and our Dad built a shelter for part of the deck, I've already written a post about it but now, Dad added Broekie lace to the shelter. It looks so beautiful, Victorian style!

God bless and enjoy the photos :)
