Stormy SEIturday

Guess what? We have a new camera! So it's now officially Sayonara Sony, except for the older back-up camera. Please meet Lumix-Chan:

#1 is very excited by the X12 optical lens! She has already started taking pictures, including a portrait of of me:

And one of our forsythia which is coming into bloom...

...even though the weather has been seriously nasty this week.

The weather has been so changeable that #1 will open up the run because it's sunny and we will all pour out into it, and five minutes later, it's pouring with rain. We have been getting some nice rainbows tough!

and the occasional ray of sunshine for me to bask in!

But when it's raining, in keeping with my name, Sei-Shonagon (she was a very famous writer of a thousand years ago!), I like to nap in the tatami space...

Wishing you a dry and sunny SEIturday! Tomorrow, #1 is going to a day-long workshop on braiding and turning our Percherons for shows, so we will probably be late in both posting and visiting.


  1. Looking forward to lots more lovely pictures taken with Lumix-Chan.

  2. Sei-Chan, your portrait is very handsome! We bet #1 will like her new camera very much!

  3. We larfed at the camera name ~ iz everyfinn called chan in yoor hoswe? Chair-chan, table-chan, bed-chan? MOL! And not forgetting brekkie-chan or dinner-chan.

  4. Well hello there new Lumix. We think we will be seeing a lot of you..

  5. We think Lumix-Chan's breeder might have fudged his pedigree. He doesn't look like an Aby to us! :P

    Tommy, are you going to let #1 practice her braiding on your ear furs? It would look tres manly.

  6. Wow! That is a cool camera. we look forward to seeing many more pictures that are taken on it

  7. Lovely photos with the new camera! Hope the rain ends soon and you gets some sunshine to bask in.

  8. Lumix-Chan looks good! And the 12x zoom tops our 10x zoom. We're glad your #1 is pleased with it so far. The workshop sounds like mucho fun.

  9. I am glad that there is a new camera in your home as that should mean we will see more fantastic photos of you all!

  10. Tell #1 that you want to enter Kitty Fight Club. It won't be the same without one of the Chans!

    PeeEssWoo: Hi Tommy!

  12. Hi Poupounette gang! We've been without our internet for a week - it's been torture! So, we've just been having a catch up - oooh, we just love your blog!

    Beautiful portrait photo of Sei-chan - looks like Lumix-chan is going to be a popular member of the family! And Tommy - you're our new hero! You're totally waterproof (being hypoallergenic doggies with hair and not fur we're a bit envious as when we get wet, boy do we get WET!!), you're super-athletic and you're one of the world's best snugglers. You're one cool dude!

  14. Great pics! Love the rainbow....was there a pot of gold at the end of it?

  15. Congrats on the new camera - great pics so far. Thanks for the wishes for a dry and sunny day - ours was very wet - maybe tomorrow will be better.

    Those rainbows are beautiful and always make me smile.

  20. Ooh, a new camera -- very exciting! Love the portrait ... and can hardly wait to see lots more new pictures. :)

  21. Hooray for the fancy new camera! And I love your gorgeous portrait!

  22. We can see the camera is working nicely! Please tell #1 to learn lots at her this about fancy braiding of manes and tails? I don't know how to do that. Our weather has been changeable as well -- hope you get some nice days strung together too.

  23. We are soooo happy that spring is finally here! You flowers are very pretty.

    We are sorry we have been gone for so long. We missed your new sweet kitty. How adorable!

    We have been looking though some older posts and LOVE seeing Bibi with Tom all snuggled up.

    Lots of Luv & Kisses
