Now THAT's What I Call FUN!

Don't you LOVE it when you have one of those
extra terrific weekends?

Saturday morning I went out to the house of
my new friend Carolynn from A Glowing Ember who
moved to an acreage just outside of Swift Current
late last year from British Columbia.

After a tour of her lovely home,
a most scrumptious brunch,
a quick introduction to her adorable kitty,
and a little play time with her enthusiastic pup,
her and I went to the
"Discover the Farm, Poultry and Exotic Animal Sale"
that was held in the city.

Two kindred spirits
sharing the same joy of animals,
cameras in hand,
wondering if our hubbies would notice
if a couple of
fuzzy, furry, squeaky, squawky
or four legged bundles of delight
happened to follow us home...

Just a small sampling of what we
saw, touched and coveted...














Could baby pigs be any darn cuter???

Thank you Carolynn
for a most enjoyable Saturday morning!

Sounds like a lovely day!

Personally though, the post just made me ache to own a bunny again..

Carolynn Anctil said...

I still have the biggest smile plastered on my face. It was great fun and you were very patient with my "enthusiastic" (read: completely unmannered) pup.

I think I could resist most of the animals but I would have to have the fluffy bunny. And maybe the donkey too, I love donkeys.

Jaime said...

Ohhhhh!!!! Bunny love!!!!!
And those pigs. Oh my.
I was in the park yesterday where they have a petting zoo, with tiny baby piglets, but I didn't want to go in and see them because I didn't have my camera with me, and I know I would be feeling all kinds of regret for not bringing my camera... my plan was to go back today, camera in hand, but it didn't happen. Yesterday, I could see them from a distance though, and oh, were they ever adorable!
