It was cold outside today, damp and grey but it felt nice to be in the light unlike being in that gloomy castle. Mother always encouraged me to stretch my legs in the fresh air to get away from the plague. There are many quiet paths to explore around here, I'm glad I've got Shakes to keep me company.
Winter Home Decorations
Shakes and I have been collecting anything green and interesting. We found box, yew, bay and even some holly and ivy. I'm going to make something pleasing to look out and to celebrate the coming winter. If Shakes can stop chewing all of my treasures that is! Hopefully, it'll make the dark castle feel more like home.
