Sheep Shearing Festival

Today we went to the Sheep Shearing Festival in the park.
The city sheep were getting a shave to get rid of their woolly coat, so they don't get too hot this summer.

These sheep were still waiting for their turn.

These two told me they were looking forward to getting a nice shave.

There were also market stalls with all kinds of woolly stuff.

Oh, green silk wool! Just my color.

There was also a stand with really yummy cheese.

It was a fun afternoon.
My owner got me some purple wool, and we will see if we can make something cool with it.

May Adventures

I'm still around and doing fun stuff when I can.
Here is my May update:

We went to a sandwich shop where I got hot chocolate.

And an awesome grilled sandwich.
No piggies were harmed in the making of this sandwich.

I also explored the little pan they put on our table.

And I visited the May Fair!

I really wanted to ride this, but my owner wasn't in the mood.

This one is a bit too high for me.

The Jumper is another favorite of mine.

In the end we didn't go on a ride, but we played a game and found the girlfriend of the flamingo we adopted last year.

I also went to a liqueur tasting.

This was my favorite: Caramel Sea-salt.

This green one was tasty as well.

Some of the others were really awful in my opinion.

My owner agreed!

Next week I'll go on a cool trip.
Stay tuned!

A Piggy, Food, and Kampen

I've been a bit preoccupied the last few weeks, but here's an update on some of the things I did.

I spotted piggy artwork near the train station!

Our favorite restaurant closed last year, but the owners of that restaurant have another one, so we visited it to see if the food is as yummy as it was in the other. (It is!)

I got to eat strawberry ice cream with real strawberries in it.

We also made a trip to Kampen to visit family.

It was a lovely day so we walked from the station to our destination.

We did some sightseeing along the way.

I think this gate is really cool!

At the end of the afternoon I had a bottle of Blind Pig cider before we had to catch a train back home.

Awesome Mail

We received awesome mail from Minerva Spencer today!

We won a giveaway and she sent this amazing package full of books and goodies.

There was a really cool tea set, with tea towels, a teapot and cup set, Chai Latte tea, and a dog shaped strainer.

Voodoo Bride was very happy with all the swag, which included bookmarks, cover flats, and a pack of playing cards.

And 4 books!
Two of them are by Minerva Spencer AND are signed. Minerva writes really awesome Historical Romance, so you can bet these books will go on our favorite shelves!

Thanks, Minerva!

A New Bookcase

Yesterday we went to IKEA to get me a present for my birthday.
We had french fries at the restaurant. Yum!

And this is what I got:
A bookcase on wheels!

More room for my books.
We immediately began rearranging.

Doesn't it look awesome!?
Because of the wheels it can be easily moved to get to the books in the bookcase behind it.

After midnight we celebrated the start of my birthday.

How Long Has it Been? Let's Celebrate with Paper!

I've not been blogging a lot last year, I know.

I will confess that my review blog, games, and other things are reasons, but also because the trips and things I've been up to have been repeats of things I posted about before. Because I've been blogging for a long time.

How long, you ask?

10 years!

Yes, you read that correctly. Today it was 10 years ago I blogged for the very first time!

So no better way to celebrate than doing something fun with one of the animals I met through my blog: Hammie!

While Hammie and I caught up on things, C & G were making paper clay to sculpt with. First they mixed paper with water and made it into a pulpy mess.

Next the pulpy mess was put in dishcloths to get most of the water out.

Here you can see it after the water was pressed out of it.

Next they got out sticky stuff to add to the paper so Hammie and I fled the scene before we got sticky!

After a fun day catching up and celebrating with Hammie, we got to see what C & G created:

They made owls and cats!

These two grumpy owls and the cat were made by C.
She says that maybe a next time she will try to make a sculpture of me, now that she had some practice.

All in all a perfect way to celebrate 10 years of blogging, travelling, and making friends. Thanks for sharing it with me, Hammie.

And also a big THANK YOU to all the other animals, people, and other creatures I met on my travels and online. You are all amazing and make blogging fun!
