Well, it is blowing and snowing here again in Michigan. My cat Cody is going completely buggy stir crazy. See, when it's nice out he likes to sit on our front porch, feel the breeze in his fur, then wander around the yard and sometimes the neighbor's yard if the dogs aren't out. All through the warmer months he and I walk around the yard and he "helps" me pull weeds, plant seeds and flowers and then we sit in the sun and let it warm our bones. He's a sweet little pal. Though he does like to put the bitey on me when I'm weeding or planting. I think it's the movement or maybe he thinks I'm playing. So yes when I screech in surprise it's usually not a bug. It's Mr.C attacking me. We're trying to encourage him to play with the cat toys, but mainly he eats and grumps around making frustrated sounds, sleeps and eats again. Poor kitty with Seasonal Affective Disorder.
While scrounging around yesterday I found some really pretty glass beads that I had forgotten about! I'm such a pack rat and living in a house with way too many rooms for our small family makes it even easier to loose track of things. I bought them at a craft store many years ago just as I was coming down with what turned out to be strep throat. Needless to say crafting was the last thing I felt like doing and somehow they were tucked away. How nice that I should find them now when I'm needing something to keep my self occupied.
It's so nice to read the kind comments from other people who love their pets and are so understanding of my melancholy posts. I'm trying to write about happier things. I don't want to depress anyone. I'm hinting for perhaps getting a digital camera during all of these post holiday sales. Then after I figure it all out I can show off my cute kitties. I'm afraid I'm very much a novice when it comes to technology. I'm pretty much a Victorian/Hippie Girl and my husband doesn't always explain things in simple terms. (He's a Vulcan) ;)
I'm going to go work on dinner and then enjoy some of the books and a very cool new magazine I purchased with my Barnes and Noble gift card that I got for Christmas. I'll tell you about the magazine next time. I will say it's one of those obscure ones that I have a tendency to find.
Here's to snuggling with our furbabies and tasty cups of tea.
