11/28/2016 – Winter is Coming

autumnlights2016_6_150It’s not too early to think of Quint’s original paintings making the perfect holiday gift! Click on Quint’s Art Shop icon over on the far right sidebar –> or visit his art shop directly by clicking here. There are lots of selections hoping to find their forever homes this year. Maybe yours?

We don’t often get snowfall here at Colehaus. When we do, it’s exciting, maybe not for drivers or snow haters, but for Mom who grew up in the desert, it’s a magical event!

This past January*, we brought a teensy snowball inside to see who might be interested in it. Wouldn’t you know it was Tessa who commandeered the whole thing. Well, mostly Tessa.

And then, Tessa went behind the curtain to take a private bath because sometimes, she’s bashful that way. Bashful… Tessa? Yeah, right.

*tsk tsk* Mom, it’s the end of November. You’re just now taking these photos off the camera?

  1. That snowball must have been very tasty. We don’t often get snow either, but when we did Eric and I used to love to go and play THoE in it. That was when we were young and foolish. As we got older we preferred to stay by the fire.

  2. For inside kittehs, sometimes the outside stuff can be a real treat.

  3. Aww. I love those pictures! You captured Tessa’s personality perfectly.

  4. A ladies’ toilette should be private, for gosh sakes! “Snowball juice”…LOL! BTW, I found delicious frames for Quint’s artwork that I’d ordered awhile ago; love the gift-giving idea. Working on it!

  5. You were very brave Tessa but we are not so as we like our pawsies to be warm.

  6. Katie Isabella

    You know my mom needs to bring some in for me when it snows. She has not so far.

  7. I love to see Tessa. P.s. I’m so jealous that your floor is so spotless!!

  8. Snowballs do make the whiskers shiver though!

  9. My human says I MIGHT get to see some of that snow stuff this winter. Not sure if I’m looking forward to that.

  10. You’re so brave, Tessa ! Zorro doesn’t mind walking in that white stuff, but I don’t like it. Purrs

  12. Ooh! A tasty snowball!!! Was it nip flavoured?? 😉

  13. MOL! That didn’t last long. 😉

  14. We’re with you, Tessa. At first we thought these must be new photos from an early November snow. Humans sure can procrastinate. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  15. Looks like you had fun with the snow.

  16. That looks like a lot of fun. We hope you get another one this year!

  17. * giggle * freezing tongue ?

  18. Isso parece muito divertido!

  19. How fun to have a snowball treat.

    Emma and Buster

  20. Wow, that was the fastest-eaten snowball, ever! We Florida cats wouldn’t have known what to do with one.

  21. I’ve love to let my kitties experience snow like that…but I don’t think that will be happening here in Southern California.
