My Open Fire

During these long, cold winter nights, there's nothing I enjoy more than to snuggle-up in front of a warm open fire...

But first, you've got to build it...

Then light it...

...Ta-da. Are you impressed with my fire-lighting skills? I'd make a good 'boy scout' eh?

Ahhhh, the open fire...

...sometimes I like to relax...

...sometimes I work on my blog...

...and sometimes, when no-one is watching, I just like to 'roast my nuts'!

But usually, I just like to drowse in the warmth and...

...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Hello Homer!!!

I loved seeing the picture of you "roasting your nuts" in front of the fireplace! You're too cute (and handsome).

I read in your profile that you have traveled basically ALL OVER THE WORLD. WOW! Impressive! I think your next move should be to Vancouver!

Love nibbles,

Excellent way to spend a cold winter's day, Homer! Good to see you've mastered all the important skills. We admire your self discipline. Afraid if we got a nice stick in our mouths, we'd run around playing with it.

Hi Homer, that's a pawsome fire to snuggle up by. Happy New Year too, sorry we haven't been able to come by much.
PS Thanks for the card, you look very handsome!

Lucille said...

Hi Homer,
sorry I had missed your post!
I like your skills with "fire";)
I'd love to keep you company on your warm sofa... You look so very comfy!!!
I am not so good as you are in lighting up a fire, my humans do that, but I am really good in stealing wood and bite it into small pieces!!!
PS: plus I am not allowed on the sofas in the living room... but they take my cushion over there, so that's acceptable...
Ciao Lucille
