In the continuing adventures of Howard...

We posted a parcel to Ireland & Howard wants to know if he's heading there someday? It was all we could do to keep him out of the envelope.

He made a new friend when Jake came home from a birthday party with Ralph the bear.

He loved Western - rated Canada's most beautiful campus - we sat under the trees & knit at lunch - but unfortunately despite taking Howard twice, I didn't take my camera even once! We're hoping to remedy that tonight with an evening trip to see A Midsummer's Night's Dream on the lawn at University College.


It looks like Howard is having a great time! Don't forget to visit ElanKnits shop to see all her wonderful goodies!

Howard's Arrival!

I was starting to get so worried about poor Howard! It seemed to take an awfully long time for him to get from his last visit to the new one. But I found some great new pics and a story in my inbox today!

Howard is visiting our friend ElanKnits. Be sure to stop by her shop and see her amazing work!

Howard arrived while I was out running errands, I saw the post man heading towards my house as I left, with a padded envelope in hand, so I was hopeful Howard would be here when I got back.

I put him straight to work, he had some great ideas for the new patches I'm making for my sale next weekend, we're taking individaul pictures of them later so we can list them on etsy.

Jake was quite excited to find Howard on my work table aka the diningroom table & wasn't too impressed to learn he's just visiting (I think one of Howard's cousins may have to come to live here via x-mas stocking this year).

It's so nice to see my little Gumble's face again! I can't wait to see what he does next!

Howard Settles In

Well Tuesday night Howard was finally feeling a bit more comfortable and by the time movie night began he was feeling right at home. We decided to watch the Time Machine,

which Howard thought would be kinda scary. It was a little but luckily Howard had a nearby pillow to hide under.

Wednesday morning when I left for work Howard was still fast asleep. Good thing because when I got home that night I decided to introduce Howard to Daisy my pup.

They had a brief unsure moment but soon became the best of friends. So all three of us decided to go for a walk before it started to rain again.

I promised Howard on the walk I would show him where I picked the flowers from the previous night

and that we would leave some peanuts out for the squirrels.

We also stumbled upon some very large tree fungus and Howard was quite eager to have a closer look at them.

This morning Howard was up bright and early to have breakfast with me. I think he misheard me when I told him we would be having eggs in a cup, because when I came out of the kitchen Howard was trying to get into the egg cup himself.

He didn't fit and was actually quite relieved when he realized his error and I told him he could have his own seat.

It's Rummoli night tonight and Howard just finished helping me set up the table.

He is quite excited at the prospect of winning some money (I haven't the heart to tell him plastic poker chips aren't real money)I told him we couldn't be up too late though because tomorrow night we had lots of things to do in order to get ready for the weekend.

Can't live in a reno house for a week without pitching in at least once! Yep Howard is gonna be put to work!


I have to admit, I'm awfully excited to see my Howard get put to work!

Be sure to stop by soon to see the latest Howard adventure. And be sure to stop by Fotofiction's shop to check out her amazing photography!

Have a Gumbly Day!

Howard Arrives!

I was horribly excited to find photo's from Fotofiction this morning in my Convo folder. The adventure has begun!!

Howard just arrived today. He was feeling a little shy at first and wasn't sure he wanted to come out and play. I was taking some photographs of some flowers and eventually his curiosity must have gotten the better of him cause he came out to check out the flowers.

I tried not to make a big deal of it so he wouldn't remember he was shy, but my puppy saw Howard and started to bark in excitement. (she loves new friends) Howard quickly hid the best he could!

I managed to coax him out again when I told him because it was raining so hard we were going to have a movie night and that dinner was almost ready. I'll send more after dinner. I hope Howard likes my cooking, no one else seems to!

Howard and Lindsey
