At the point where we started our walk we saw this sign. It says 'Geography', but why it was there we do not know. It pointed in the direction that we were heading, but we never saw anything related to this sign at all. Weird....
It was a hot day and the sheep in the meadows were all being lazy. it must have been hot for them with all that wool.

We made cupcakes for the birthday as well as there was LOTS of family to feed! Princess picked out the green icing as well.
Leftover pieces of cake! Look how pretty they are! A rainbow hides inside just waiting to come out. Sorry there are no pictures of me eating cake....I ummm made a bit of a "pig" of myself and didn't want to show the pictures! How embarrassing!
On our way home from the family birthday party we came across these beautiful horses and their foals.
Princess's second birthday party - a 3-tier of cupcakes!! Yummy!
Here is Princess blowing out the candles.
Some of the decorations at Princess's Tinkerbell birthday party - Toadstools!
And now you know the reason for my pretty ribbons: I dressed up for Princess's birthday.
Me and Tinkerbell are close ;)

Today another post by Moira
These tulips may just be my favorite flowers in the garden...so pretty and delicate - like me! ;)
I picked a flower for you Sullivan!
The flowers have been growing very well under my careful guidance and attention. I have found that I love to garden!
More flowery goodness.

Today my owner got a nice surprise in the mail: presents!
There was a bag of candy that was for my owner's OH, but I got to taste the candy too, it was yummy!

After work we went to the store to get groceries for dinner and they had Wild Pig again.
At home there suddenly was a new addition to our household: this little hippo. He is very shy so we haven't found out his name yet or where he came from. Maybe my owner's OH knows more, so we'll ask him when he gets home.

Here's a close up of the snail.
It's a snail right? Or is it a slug? It's another one of those things that I always get confused. Here we call all snail-like critters 'slak'. We just put something in front of the word slak to make sure everyone knows what kind of 'slak' we're talking about: Huisjesslak (the kind like in the picture, means house snail/slug as it has it's house on it's back), naaktslak (naked slug/snail, the kind without a shell), waterslak (water snail/slug, the kind that you find in the water). Anyway: this is my favourite kind of 'slak'. I think they're very beautiful.
On to the really cool news of today:
When we were in town to get our shopping done we saw this giant voodoo doll!
It was in the shopwindow of the bookstore, because it's the month of the suspense books this month. All month they have a showcase on thrillers and other suspense books and you can get a discount on lots of them too. In the background you can see the book my owner's OH got for free yesterday too: you get it for free everytime you buy a book this month it turns out.

Next: I luv Halloween volume 2 by Keith Giffen and Benjamin Roman
this is a comic/manga that is beautifully drawn I think and it features lots of zombies and other undead creatures. It's about a town where for some reason there are lots of zombies and only a few normal living people. (Why this is so is probably explained in volume 1 but as I do not have it I can't tell you.) Coolest thing about this comic: there's a zombie kid who is dressed in a pig costume!
There's lots of violence and bloodshed in this comic so it might not be for everyone.
And last: Death: at Death's door by Jill Thompson.
Anyone familiar with Sandman will have seen Jill Thompson's work before as she has drawn a few Sandman stories. This comic is based on the Sandman story 'Season of Mists' and tells how Death with the help of Delirium and Despair tries to handle the fact that the dead are coming back from hell after Lucifer has closed it and handed the key to Dream. It's a really funny story and fans of Death should really try to get hold of this one. (Eve: If you haven't got this one allready, go get it, Delirium is brilliant!)
That's it for now. If myowner keeps doing boring stuff I might post a list of stories featuring pigs next.
