holiday travel

Last week, I had the pleasure of spending the week with my family in a small town in New Hampshire. Here are a few pictures of the highlights:

It was too late to go apple picking this year, but there were still plenty of yummy apples to be had from the orchard! The apple varieties available in New England are so much better than anything I can find here in, Washington, which is known for it's apples.

On Wednesday morning, we awoke to 12 inches of fresh snow! What fun! One of the many things I miss about living in New England is the pretty snow. To me, the holidays are just not the holidays without snow. Where I live in Washington, we rarely get much snow.

Meet Nikki, my parent's new dog. She is believed to be a border collie mix and is around 9-months old. She's got lots of energy and loves attention!

Thanksgiving feast! Very delicious!!

Laura baked the most amazing apple pie ever! 

Once again, while in New Hampshire, I didn't see a single cat. However, thanks to my pet-camera at home, I was able to watch my own cats whenever I wanted! (I'll be writing more about this pet-camera later in the week, so stay tuned.) Annie, my cat sitter, came over and took good care of the kitties while I was away.

Can you spot four of my cats in this photo?

It was such a lovely time away from routine-life but sadly, vacation is over, so it's back to the grind. I love coming home to the kitties, but I miss my family and the beauty of New England.


  1. I love this cat-camera. I think it would certainly give you some peace of mind to be able to check in like that. Your feast looked delish and that pie...oh my! Nothing like family, right! Have a great day. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x4 and a few more.

  2. I also so love the cat camera idea. New England is so lovely, I lived there many years ago and miss the seasons and the beautiful snow. Glad you had time with family. hugs, Linda

  3. The cat camera is very cool. I think it would make me even more OCD than I am over the boys now. LOL.

    Glad you had a lovely holiday. I thought our 3 cms of snow (about an inch) was bad enough last Wednesday. I would not be crying if we skipped snow altogether this winter, though with living in Ontario there's zero chance of that.

    So nice to hear you had a lovely holiday :o)
