jumped lazily over the quick red fox? No?
Jasper is settling in well. He sleeps a lot, then revs through the house with the kids, inhales his supper then passes out again. It's sort of like living with someone on speed.
The kids are delighted, the cats are disgusted. Pretty much status quo.
Yesterday morning was a study in contrasts - when Jasper and I went out for a quick wee at dawn, there was ice and snow covering the ground. By nine am, that had all gone, the sun was out and it turned into a beautiful day.
I'm reading a fantastic book called Latitudes of Melt by Joan Clark - she's a local author and it's really a good story. A baby is found floating on an ice floe. No one ever comes looking for her, so she's taken in by a Newfoundland couple. The book chronicles her marriage to the lighthouse keeper, the lives of their children, and her granddaughter's determination to find out where her grandmother came from.
A very good book.
Library trip tomorrow - can't wait!
