The Kindling Express —

We went off in the Yeti – a beast of burden if ever there was one – to grab a few big bags of kindling at source yesterday – we being Helen – myself and Loki —

We can get kindling on our doorstep – but only in small bags and when it’s all added up in the spring it has cost a fortune. Unless – we buy in bulk – with the added bonus of enjoying the scenic route to our supplier —

So we chose our day —

with sunshine and a fresh capping of snow on the hills around Glen Quaich —

plus the white church in Amulree —

Further up the road we have views over Aberfeldy and if your eyes are good enough they go all the way to Schiehalion —

and the mountains around Blair Athol —

I think the quality of the pics shows I had help in that department and here she is – Helen trudging back to the car after taking a c;lose-up of Schiehallion — I jest — Luckily we didn’t have to go all the way to the horizon for our kindling and we should have sufficient now to light our wee fire through till spring — Magic!

Cat in the Bag —

A young Seamus – butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth —

Like children – they grow up far too quick —

There’s no messing with him now at 5 yrs of age —

All he thinks about is FOOD – turns his back and goes in the huff if he doesn’t get his way —

Here he is teaching his mate Loki to ‘hunt’ – it involves badgering Helen and I till we give in and put something in their bowls —
