Wednesday Dose of Cute: Patiently Waiting for Santa

Patiently Waiting for Santa
Smudge, who loves leaves, takes a laid back approach to the holidays. (Mr. Midnight, on the other hand, is a little more impatient.)

©, the no fear of heights foodie farm blog (well, except for me, Miss Terra Firma) where that ladder lives against The Shack so my hunky farmguy Joe can climb up on the roof to sweep the leaves off (which helps keep the rain in the kitchen down to a minimum)—and so Smudgie can get up there more easily.


  1. Smudge is an absolutely perfect name for a cat. This could be a great Christmas card picture!

  2. Cats find the darnest places to get.

  3. Ah, we have a Smudge too! Often on the roof, but not in a pile of leaves.
    My dad was a bricklayer, and he would probably have said that your chimney needs repointing:)

  4. You take such great pictures of your animals. You always get an "awww..." or a laugh out of me. Today I got a little teary reading about "New Cat". I've tried your lentil soup (with kielbasa) and your almond/choc chip biscotti. Love 'em!

  5. That is so darn cute! It offers a great view and looks comfy too.

  6. Smudge is a cutie. Someone told me that cats love to be up on something higher - looking downward. If that's true, then Smudge has the best view of all!

    We have a cat named Smudge too!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
