A few new pictures today. We’ve spent a lot of time out on our screened-in porch this week. Conal loves to crawl around and chase after the cats who, in turn, love to creep around and chase after the birds. The birds can’t get in the porch, and the cats can’t get out, so the birds just happily flit about, safe from our intrepid hunting duo.

Of course, the pics show none of that excitement. Instead, here you’ll find Conal all wrapped up in the intricacies of our old cast iron hibachi, re-purposed originally as a planter but now serving as a somewhat inconvenient door stop.
