An Owly Cover

Look what I had in the mail today:

A cover for our e-reader!
Isn't it beautiful!?

Now I can take the e-reader safely with me when I go on a trip.

A Book, a Card and Sheep Swag

Yesterday the last book we ordered with the spending money we got from Sinterklaas arrived! I already read this book because I borrowed it from a friend, but it was such a cool book I wanted to have my own copy. Once again: thanks Sinterklaas!

There's still Christmas cards arriving and some are just gorgeous, like this one that I got from Marlowe.
Thanks Marlowe: I love it!

And today I got all this cool Sheep Swag!
I won it over at I Smell Sheep, a really fun review blog.
Thanks, Katie, Sharon and all the other sheep!

A Present and Cake

It's Christmas so we got to open the present my owner's friend Jan send us!

It turned out to be chocolate and a really cool Christmas Stocking!

When I investigated the stocking it turned out it there was chocolate inside!

Thanks Jan!

This afternoon I helped my owner with baking a Bundt cake

I checked if we had all the right ingredients.

And I supervised the mixing.

When it was done we put some powdered sugar on it.

And I got to taste the cake of course!

Bookish Mail once more

Today there were two books in the mail for me!
I won these books in a giveaway Ann Aguirre held over on her website and to which Kameron Hurley kindly donated these books. They sound really intriguing I must say.

Thanks Ann and Kameron!

And to all of you:
A Happy Holiday Season!

Frank and a Mug

Today I discovered that my co-worker Frank the Sheep has his own Christmas card! I must bug my owner so she'll make Christmas cards of me next year as well.

I might not be on a Christmas card, but I did get a mug today!

Today we got a big Christmas package from the company where my owner works.

I was very curious what was inside, but my owner took her time in opening the package.

Come on!
Hurry up already!

Finally the tape was removed and I could look inside.

It was filled with all kinds of tasty food and even a fun puzzle.


I'm looking forward to Christmas.
Just two more days!

I'm Still Around

Yes, I know. I haven't been blogging these last few days, but I've been busy trying out my newest gadget: An E-reader. I must say it reads much easier than I always thought and I'm very happy with it.

In other news:

The second of the three books we ordered with our Sinterklaas spending money arrived today!

And this evening we went to our favorite restaurant with a couple of friends to ring in the Holiday season.

Christmas Mail

Today at work we got a Christmas card from a co-worker and she had put a chocolate Christmas ornament on the envelope. How fun! We put the ornament in our tree when we got home.

We also got two packages today!
We got a beautiful card and a present for under the Christmas tree from my owner's friend Jan and we got a card, minty chocolate and a cool Piglet Pez dispenser from Jerry & Ben.

Thanks everyone for all the awesome Christmas cards and presents!

Today we received a belated Sinterklaas present.
My owner and her OtherHalf had gotten some spending money from Sinterklaas and they spend the money by ordering some books.

And this is one of those books!
The Complete Fiction by H.P. Lovecraft.

It has all of Lovecraft's stories, including one of my all time favorite short stories: 'The Temple'. I will certainly enjoy reading this book.

New Books for Voodoo Bride

This evening we hurried to the bookstore to pick up a book that Voodoo Bride had ordered. It turned out they had a special Christmas shopping surprise for all customers: Everyone got a coupon that was worth 5 euro. So suddenly Voodoo Bride could not just buy one book, but two! And we also got to participate in a lottery where I won a button!

What a cool shopping trip.

Hippo Mail

Today a present arrived for my owner.
I kept a close watch while she unpacked it, because you never know what might be inside. Maybe it would be something I would like as well.

There was a beautiful card that came with the present. The card and present were send by my owner's friend Goth Gerbil.

Two hippos!
They will feel right at home here: my owner has a large herd of hippos under her care so they will have lots of friends.

Thanks Goth Gerbil:
My owner loves the hippos and I always love making new friends as well.

A Beautiful Present

A Nativity Scene!
Isn't it beautiful? We need to get a Christmas tree so we can put the Nativity scene underneath the tree.

Thank you Raquel!
What an awesome present.

Dice and Contagious Mail

There were two cool packages today!
The first was an invitation to a Game of the Year party and contained dice! I think you can never have too may dice.

The other package was wrapped in Sinterklaas wrapping paper and had a poem attached to it. The poem said this present was late because Black Pete had gotten ill when wrapping it.

Let's see what's inside.

Swine Flu?

Luckily it turned out to be friendly and fluffy Swine Flu.

The fluffy Swine Flu showed me what else was in the package: Wals met Bashir (Waltz with Bashir) a beautifully drawn graphic novel about the 1982 invasion of Lebanon.

Thank you, Sinterklaas and Black Pete for these awesome presents!

And now that Sinterklaas has gone back to Spain it's time to decorate for Christmas!
