We were all set to bring Gertrude out for this month’s Critter of the Month post, but she slipped away from us when we had our backs turned. Next thing y’know she’s made herself comfortable in my zinnias and is munching away! Good thing they’re sturdy flowers and grow back fast.
I am sorry for not having this month’s post ready in time. I hope you enjoy this silly doodle while you wait. I will try my best to have the post up by the end of the week.
P.S. This month’s critter is not actually Gertrude. I just couldn’t resist drawing this silly little scene. Let’s just say it’s Gertrude’s fault the post is late.
In the year 1842, Sir Richard Owen coined the name “dinosaur” to describe a group of giant, ancient reptiles. It was a time that the scientific community was setting out to disprove outdated notions of creation myths and legendary beasts, and he believed he was scientifically categorizing creatures that were mistaken as mythical creatures for thousands of years…but what if he was wrong?
I’m so sorry. Life has really been throwing some curve balls my way, and I’m afraid my post is not ready even with my best effort. It’s one of those situations where everything that can go wrong, goes disastrously wrong. I will try my best to have it by the end of the week.
On the bright side, here’s a little peak over my shoulder. 🙂 Hopefully we’ll get to have a proper look at her by the end of the week!
Here at the homestead the kids are fully immersed in the magic of Christmas. Filled with stories of the Baby Jesus surrounded by the animals in a humble stable, and excited anticipation for surprises Santa and his elves might leave in their stockings.
Santa’s elves always leave a little something homemade in the stocking, and this year they made little books (Of course, the kids have no idea that I am actually Santa’s primary “elf”). The book made for my youngest was a cute coloring book on how dinosaurs get ready for the winter holidays. I hope you enjoy a little prehistoric holiday cheer with these coloring pages! 🙂
I hope you have a safe and happy New Year! I’ll see you on February 1st :D
