Behind the scenes of a TV shoot

Behind the scenes of a TV shoot

Posted by Francesca

Thursday was really busy at the farm.  Martha was home that day, but instead of relaxing, she was hard at work, as usual.  There were photo shoots going on for the magazine and the TV crew was there for some gardening segments.  Here are some photos from behind the scenes of the television shoot with …

Let sleeping cats lie

Let sleeping cats lie

Posted by Francesca

Do you remember hearing about the new calico Persian kittens that came to live with us?  Sharkey and I don’t get to see them too often, as they still like to hide.
However, the other day, we finally came across the one called Empress Tang and thought that maybe we could play together.
No way that was …

An amazing cookie

An amazing cookie

Wandering around the house the other day, I happened upon a most amazing cookie.  I called Francesca over to have a look.  It was so finely decorated and it reminded us of a photo we once posed for.  Apparently, someone copied that very same photo in icing!  Very awesome indeed!

Alexis's new bathtub

Alexis's new bathtub

Posted by Francesca

On Thanksgiving, we did so much walking around in New York City that my little paws were kind of sore.  Martha thought it would be a good idea to give them a soothing bath in Alexis’s new bathtub.  When I heard ‘bath,’ I kind of panicked, however, Martha was true to her word and it …

Thanksgiving with Martha, Kevin, and Alexis in NYC

Thanksgiving with Martha, Kevin, and Alexis in NYC

Posted by Francesca

We Frenchies hope you all had a very pleasant Thanksgiving.  Martha decided not to cook dinner at home this year.  Instead, we went to New York City where we met up with Kevin and Alexis.  We spent the whole day walking and sightseeing and visited many friends.  It was fun and quite an adventure.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We Frenchies know it’s Thanksgiving when Martha’s turkey collection appears all around the house.  Martha’s kind of crazy about Turkeys.  It could be that she used to live on a street called Turkey Hill Road.  But then again, maybe it’s just that she really likes Thanksgiving.  In any event, we enjoy looking at all of …

Close Encounters with Vivaldi the Cat

Close Encounters with Vivaldi the Cat

Posted by Sharkey

Vivaldi the cat is one sly fellow. He is always doing things to get under our skin. Just the other day, I found him all sprawled out on top of a nice soft pile of our clothes. Martha keeps our dog wardrobe neatly folded in baskets in a room off the kitchen called the servery. …

Driving with Martha around the farm

Driving with Martha around the farm

Posted by Francesca

Martha is always working so hard and Francesca and I were elated to find her home last Friday morning.  It was such a beautiful day and she told us that we were going for a drive around the farm.  We always like to hear that news so we found the Kawasaki and waited patiently while …

Playing in the leaves

Playing in the leaves

Posted by Francesca

Who doesn’t love playing in a big pile of dry and fluffy leaves?  It’s so much fun and I feel sorry for dogs who live where no leaves fall.  Sharkey and I discovered some really big piles the other day and jumped right in.  One thing’s for sure – while playing, it’s really important to …

The sport of donkey chasing

The sport of donkey chasing

Posted by Sharkey

Regular readers of our blog know how much Francesca and I love to chase animals.  Yesterday, we were out and about and I realized that we hadn’t seen the donkeys for a while.  We located the paddock that they were in and I proceeded to have one yelping good time.  As usual, Francesca stayed on …
