Tempe says I'll help warm ya up Boone!
See! It worked....!
As usual I am flabbergasted that another year has passed. "They" weren't just a woofing when they said time flies--especially the older you get!
It's been plenty hectic around here the last few months, but I hope that there will be some down time this winter. I've sadly neglected the blog and hope to get re-inspired to post oftener. It's not that there is any lack of things happening, but that there is a glitch (me) and they just don't get translated to blog land.
Ashley rushes in to claim the bed nearest the fire....ah this is the life!
The kittens totally hijacked the late summer, fall and first part of winter, through no fault of their own furry little selves. They've been an enormous amount of work and worry, but they have also been a joy to watch grow into their own little personalities. All have been 'fixed' now and Noah and Gabe went to their new home the day before Christmas eve, and I was very very sad. I'm doing better now and by all accounts they are making themselves right to home. Noah never even looked back when I set him down in his new home and Mary says he continues to act like he has lived there forever. Gabe has reacted in a more normal kitty fashion and had his doubts about things (mostly the collies!). However, he has now claimed his new human and is making up for lost time. I'll try and do a kitten update soon about them all.
Meshach, Chaco & Tempe--not quite on snuggling all together terms
Although Chaco decided to risk it and Meshach was okay for awhile--those portable heaters are nice once in awhile. ;-)
I believe that although I now qualify as a "Cat Lady" I have still not achieved "Crazy Cat Lady" status. I'm thinking that is something like 15 PLUS cats in the house...or so. So with 'just' six I'm sure I barely make Cat Lady. Right?? And so it goes.
So, little trailer will probably start getting it's makeover soon to convert it into a sweet little wool room. Hopefully I will get a blog post on the trailer up soon too--the before-during and after--but not after-after. I want to fix it with a couple comfy chairs too..well, maybe just one, we will see. My Dad is going to help me move the kitty play pen out of my garage and over to the trailer 'just in case' the kittens need to get some outdoor time, plus it'll make a nice chick starter pen when the time comes for that again. Meanwhile it's frozen to the ground as is the yard gate, but it sure would be nice to have my garage back again!
Tonight I plan to be off to a small party with some of my Church family, it's suppose to be bitter cold, but it should be fun. Lots of games (I hope) and snacks. I won't be out too late, and I doubt I'll stay up til midnight! Not much planned for the New Year's day or weekend, just catching up on some things around the house, keeping the critters comfortable and keeping the fire nice and hot, as it's suppose to be very cold.
Pictures today are themed--staying warm....
