The Foreman's Huge Tree Trimming Job & Getting Ready for a Brand New Year at the Lazy Vegan!

The weekly pose with Paco!
In the days since Christmas we've been busy around the Lazy Vegan getting ready for the new year - I've been cleaning like crazy, and the foreman took on a daunting & dangerous (definitely risky!) job of trimming huge oak branches.  Once he gets going with the chainsaw he's hard to stop! It was really a necessary job - we would always move our cars during big storms in case a branch broke off and now we don't have to do that.  Plus, there's the added benefit of firewood once the wood seasons!  Slow critter cam activity this week - but be sure to check out the adorable skunk below - our best skunk sighting yet!  HAPPY 2013 to all - we have no new year's eve plans as of yet...I may sneak down to the barn at midnight to see if the donkeys talk - just like on Christmas Eve.!
Busy Skunk!

Photos I missed putting on my Christmas blog - Bravo checks out a gift from his grandma Snap, above...and a photo a co-worker snapped of the us at our company party!

Beautiful weather this week after a rainy Christmas Day.
Wasabi with some new Christmas toys!

Bravo in his new favorite daytime spot - he's only allowed upstairs when I'm putting away laundry or whatever.  He loves it!

Stepping out!

The turkeys are back!

Why you can never leave food by the computer...
Play time!

Snuggle time!
Lounging time!
Wasabi doing little binkies!

The foreman's massive tree trimming job...

When a branch would drop, it shook the house!

The donkeys spend a lot of time grooming one another.
Love the vultures!

Saturday relaxation time.

Wow...more sky light!

The dogs thought it was all great fun...but they were indoors when the branches were falling!

Well, you get the idea...tons of wood everywhere...

Evening play time...and nap time for Bravo.

On my walk one morning.  Actually, two mornings!

Merry Christmas at the Lazy Vegan!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
 I decided to have a "special edition" of the blog today, rather than waiting to post these photos from Christmas Eve. & Christmas Day next week!  We had a very nice, low-key Christmas today.  It was raining, but warm and cozy inside.  The "kids" came for lunch and then the extended family came by for a visit!  Hope all the rest of the family scattered in different places had an excellent day!  I only put captions on a few photos...but the dear blog reader should be able to figure it all out!

I miss my brother - the last time I spoke with him was Christmas Day.  But he's still with us here in spirit, every day.
Wasabi eyes her gift from Grandma Snap!

Poor Christmas donkeys in the barn while it rains...I gave them special Christmas carrots for a treat!

The photos below are all from the great Christmas Eve. dinner hosted by Grandma Snap - with the Tomashefsky gang (including Aaron's girlfriend, Mo, and her cute dog!) and the extended Rousseaus!

 My ridiculous thrift store fuzzy coat next to Patty's less ridiculous red coat!

Stay tuned for next week's usual Sunday edition of the blog...when we should have resumed our normal non-holiday living!  MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
