Gnoming Around

The Gnome/Elf/Pointy Earred Wonder population has expanded in the House so there is way more Gnoming Around, lol.

December 31, 2020

Good bye 2020.  You were way to difficult and I’m glad we are breaking up! HA HA HA.

December 2, 2020

It was nice and early Autumnish.  Then the warm rains came that brought in the Winter Cold.  But it was nice while it lasted.

November 3, 2020

September 15, 2020

It’s football season again.  The Eagles lost their first game but it’s okay.  They get another chance this weekend!

Patches O’Hurley is all about giving them good mojo so he went out to talk to the trees this morning.

The Trees feel they have a very strong chance at a victory if they can just not cluck it up like last week, lol.

September 1, 2020

Gordo does some vertical running 🙂

August 24, 2020

Spending time with Nature.

August 21,2020

Masking up!

August 14, 2020

Gordo got to visit the Roomie’s happy place for the first time.  We think he liked it a lot!

It was a short visit but a much needed one in nature!

They instituted new safety protocols for Covid19 but most of them The Roomie follows everyday.  So no big deal there.  Humans wear mask.  No brainer!

The blue smurf group came along too!

In return, we all had a nice bit of beautiful outdoor time this afternoon.  The rain held off so we could enjoy these moments!  Thank you Mother Nature!

August 10, 2020

More rain…shocker!

Arthur wanted to pay homage to the fallen tree so we pulled over.  All hail the fallen tree!

Hail fallen tree!

August 6, 2020

Looking at apartments but not really wanting to move, lol.

July 24, 2020

We are missing this year’s trip to the Jersey Shore because of Covid-19.  We are sad mostly because we won’t get to add a seashell to our collection we started years ago.

Oh well, maybe next year!

July 6, 2020

Rainy Days.

June 19, 2020

Having some tasty treats for lunch.

We are starting our Christmas Celebrations early this year.  So to all of you from all of us… A Very Merry Christmas!

December 20, 2019

Christina’s work is almost done.  Then it’s party like it’s 2019 on December 26th!

December 18, 2019

Sometimes there is a pop up snowstorm that dumps a lot of snow in 15 minutes.

Sort of like today 🙂

November 26, 2019

We are getting ready for Thanksgiving which is only 2 days away.

We even got the Fancy Paprika, lol.

November 7, 2019

It has been decided…by The Roomie that Smurfs are a form of Gnome.  That is all.

Ferris Smurf is a computer Smurf.

Ferris Smurf is also adorable 🙂

Winter Storm Maya is in town.

February 11, 2019

Not enough snow for a Snow Day but it is pretty.  More snow tonight…we’ll see tomorrow if a snow day is in the cards 😉

February 2, 2019

Reds, Edgar and Chipper had quite the good time at American Treasure Tour.  So much fun with so many interesting items.

Edgar was just thrilled to be able to go this weekend.  Sometimes he’s just so busy with other gnome like activities.

Chipper in the Music Room.  There are Wurlezers and player pianos and thousands of Albums!

So many super cool things to look at.  We hope to go back soon because there was so much we may not have seen.

February 1, 2019

And it Snowed because it was cold and winter.

Tonight’s commute will not be fun.

January 31, 2019

It’s cold and snowy…in winter.  Go figure, lol.

January 27, 2019

We all went to visit The Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle this weekend.  So much weird stuff.  Not weird like  The Roomie…Weirder.

Me and Caleb were like…this is interesting.  Reds on the other hand was crazy into all of the oddities.  He was like…there is a Vampire Killing Kit.  Weird, right?

Fonthill Castle was an oddity within itself.  Fun and weird and I wished we got to run around the castle but they kind of frown upon that sort of shenanigans.

January 25, 2019

The Roomie and Tom Ato make us watch the cooking shows.  I think they have visions of being chefs or competing on the various shows.  Last night everyone had to silence themselves during Beat Bobby Flay.

All Hail Bobby Flay!

Hail Bobby Flay!

January 24, 2019

After the Storm.

January 24, 2019

It’s raining but at least it’s warm…I guess.

January 23, 2019

Rocky and Bullwinkle is on Prime!  Yes, it’s a new version, but still 🙂

January 21, 2019

Today we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

January 13, 2019

Winter Storm Gia hit Our Town over the weekend.  We only got 1″ of snow.  It was pretty but light to shovel, lol.

MaGurk is loving his first snow “storm”.

I’m like…”it’s cold”.  I crack myself up!

January 12, 2019

We went to the Rockledge Model Railroad Museum.  It’s new to the area.  RMRM was formerly in Fort Washington.  They are still setting up but what they had functioning was amazing.  We can’t wait to go back.

Who doesn’t like a good book?

We loved the trip to the new Library in Our Town.  So much fun!

January 4, 2019

Let’s go Eagles!

A big Wildcard Game this weekend against the Bears!

We are all hoping for a big W.

Patches is the most stoked for a big Win!!!

January 3, 2019

Chipper Schmenke is psychedelic Baby!

January 2, 2019

Edgar is getting a jump start on his reading this New Year!

January 1, 2019

Happy New Year from the Gnome Nation!

Here is to a great 2019 for everyone!

December 31, 2018

To usher out 2018 and bring good Mojo we burn the Bayberry Candle.

December 25, 2018

The Food…

The Christmas cheer…

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Gnome Nation!

December 2, 2018

Christmas Merriment at Hope Lodge.

November 22, 2018

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 20, 2018

Have you ever wondered what a Wissahickon Woodland Gnome looked like we can answer that question for you.

Meet Piper.  She is a WWG.  She’s lived with us for about 7 years now but she’s very shy.

She’s quiet too.  I guess it’s all of those years hiding in the forest.

She whispered to The Roomie she wanted to do some of the adventures the others have been doing.  Piper thought they looked fun 🙂

Look for her more in the future 🙂

November 19, 2018

The fog rolled in.

November 18, 2018

Patches O’Hurley was as upset as we all were that the Eagles not only lost but were destroyed this week against the Saints.  It’s okay though they will win again.  Everyone was so excited after last years Super Bowl victory that we thought this season would be a cake walk.  It isn’t and that’s okay.  We will get our swagger back 🙂

November 17, 2018

We went Craft Fairing and then out to lunch.  Saturdays rock!

November 16, 2018

We all survived Winter Storm Avery.

The day started dark and snowy but ended with a beautiful Sunset!

November 15, 2018

Winter Storm Avery is in progress.  We all found this funny because technically it’s still Autumn not Winter.  So should we be saying Autumn Storm Avery?

November 13, 2018

It’s cold.

November 10, 2018

Craft Fairs are the best!

We had so much fun this Saturday.

This one was in the woods.  It was so pretty.  It made me think of home.

November 6, 2018

All Gnomes agree…go vote!

November 5, 2018

Edgar loves Autumn 🙂

November 4, 2018

Craft Fairs and Creme Donuts!

November 1, 2018

Autumnal Fun at Lunchtime.

October 31, 2018

Something is wrong with Edgar’s costume, lol.

October 30, 2018

October 25, 2018

Into the Garden.

October 24, 2018

Squeezing in a Graveyard visit today.  The Roomie just loves cemeteries and graveyards.  She’s a weirdo like that.

October 23, 2018

Beautiful Sunset at the Farm.

I think Naughty Bit was loving this outing more than anyone.

October 19, 2018

A movie in the middle of nowhere.

We saw Hocus Pocus with friends and it was so much fun.  Games and food and popcorn and firepits 🙂

October 17, 2018

October 16, 2018

Hanging with The Roomie.

October 15, 2018

Hanging with The Roomie while she gets her treatment.  Sitting around for 4 hours isn’t anyone’s idea of fun.  I support her though.  Good health leads to more Gnome Adventures for us 🙂

October 12, 2018

Hey look…it’s the sun 🙂

October 11, 2018

Naughty Bit wants to do endorsements now.  He loves Coke.  I believe he is officially the only Gnome who drinks coke.

October 9, 2018

We love Autumn 🙂

October 6, 2018

Scarecrow Festival goodness!

Looks just like Edgar…don’t ya think?

October 4, 2018

Living in the Suburbs is exciting.  Well, if you count food shopping exciting, lol.

October 3, 2018

The last of the Veggies from the Garden for the season.  Not very big but next to Naughty Bit it looks huge, lol.

October 2, 2018

More pictures from the Arboretum.

October 1, 2018

Halloween exploded at our house.

September 30, 2018

The Eagles lost to the Titans but we haven’t given up on our Super Bowl Champions.  Carsen Wentz is back and we’ve got some issues but that doesn’t mean we can turn it around.  We are 2-2 right now with lots of season remaining.  Come on Eagles!  #flyeaglesfly

September 29, 2018

It was a beautiful day so we spent some time outside in the garden.  We also caught up on our TV shows.

September 27, 2018

It’s almost October and The Roomie is getting restless!

September 26, 2018

Naughty Bit made some new friends from the Halloweenies.  Everyone is stoked it’s Autumn 🙂

September 25, 2018

Edgar prefers to drive than be driven.

Edgar is also very excited by this notion of Halloween.

And was captivated by this huge Lego giraffe outside of Legoland Discovery.  So much to see!

September 24, 2018

Waiting for the Rains.

Caleb got to go to the doctors.  He hated it.  It smelled funny.

September 23, 2018

Enjoying a Saturday in the Garden on the last day of Summer.

September 21, 2018

Working for the man, Gnome Style!

Herbert wonders what this spreadsheet thing is all about? Can’t The Roomie just use magicks?

Caleb picked the radio station.  Oldies it is with Duran Duran.  The Roomie was a bit mift that her beloved 80’s is considered “Oldies”, lol.  Caleb explained he’s 400 years old and he doesn’t think that’s old at all, lol.

September 20, 2018

Meet the Newbie.  His name is Edgar!

September 19, 2018

Me and Caleb being awesome!

September 15, 2018

I got to go to the Farmer’s Market.  Yeah!

We got some of the last Jersey Tomatoes of the season.  The Roomie got a Tomato pie for lunch that she shared.  All in all, it was a fun day!

September 12, 2018

Waiting for Hurricane Florence.

September 11, 2018

Gnome group shot!

September 10, 2018

Happy New Year if you celebrate.  If not…Happy Monday 🙂

Chipper and Arthur visiting Morris Arboretum today.  Sure it’s raining but that’s when the Roomie loves it the most 🙂


September 9, 2018

It’s football season!

Of course Patches is thrilled.  The Eagles were victorious on Thursday so Patches was cheering on our other PA team The Pittsburgh Steelers.  To many penalties and they didn’t win.  Um…WTH Steelers!

Arthur and Caleb aren’t really into sports that much.  Art loves the cooking shows but they watched with others and then went outside to play in the rain 🙂

Not a bad Sunday.  The cold and rain where just what the Gnome ordered 🙂

#gnomingaround #gnomads #gnomefun

September 8, 2018

It was wet and coldish this weekend.  What a nice break from the oppressive humidity and heat!

I still went outside and rambled about the garden.

Our neighbors have a kiddie pool sitting in their yard that was empty on Thursday but is now filling up rapidly, lol.

It might be time for the ark building to begin, lol.

#gnomads #gnomingaround

September 7, 2018

The Eagles beat the Falcons 18-12.  A great start to Football Season!

September 6, 2018

It’s time for a new flag!  All hail the Gnomes!

September 5, 2018

Some people think I travel in a limo or some other stylish ride.  Nope…I sit in the change holder or sometimes the cup holder.  The struggle is real people…even for Gnomes!

August 28, 2018

In A Different Garden

The Week of August 18th, 2018
We all went to the Jersey Shore!

Here is to another great vacation in the books!

August 10, 2018

The Roomie had an emergency and had to go to Wilmington, NC so I tagged along.  I’d never been to Wilmington before this trip.

The Riverwalk runs alongside the Cape Fear River.  It was a very social place.

If the circumstances were different I think we all could have had a good time.  During our visit the Roomie had an accident while holding me.  We both got pretty banged up but both survived.  It was that kind of week.

August 3, 2018

And it’s raining again….I think it’s rained for 30 days so far…maybe not, but it sure feels that way!

August 2, 2018

The Phillies bring home another win!  Still in First Place!

July 28, 2018

Late night visit to the Grocery Store.

July 24, 2018

It’s raining…again….again.  All week nothing but Thunderstorms and Rain.  Ah, Summer!

July 19, 2018

What self respecting Gnome doesn’t love a good garden?  I love this garden!!!

June 2, 2018 – Alberto…You Suck!

We got the Remanents of Hurricane Alberto this weekend.  It was very hot and equally very sticky.  Then Albert blew through and it went from 89 degrees and humid to 64 degrees and humid.  Big difference between the two!

No hanging on the deck this weekend 😦

Book Club – The Summer Addition – May 30, 2018

The Roomie is all about the scary books this summer.  Why…I don’t know?

Memorial Day – May 28, 2018

It’s been cold recently.  Yesterday broke that trend and it’s in the high 60’s.  Today is more of the same but with rain.  It makes me sad when it rains on Good Friday.  I don’t know why…it just does.

 Quack, Quack

Having Fun In The Sun But With More Emus!
