Bright Eyes

I am sitting here with my computer and a cat in my lap, so it is a chore to try to type. So, I would like to take just a minute to encourage you to click each photo and enlarge it.
Lorelei was one busy little girl fact, I think she is a busy girl every day.
And a happy kid at that. But oh, does she have a temper!
There is a corner in their living room where there is an antique lamp table... and she always wants to crawl back under it. I have a hard time getting her out from back there, so I just don't let her go. She gets mad and starts kicking her feet, and does this grunting thing till you know she is unhappy.
I think you can see her tooth in this one if you enlarge it!
However, usually if she is offered other things such as a book, or to go look out the window, she forgets all about what she had started to do.


This is from a few years back, but the cold feel to the picture certainly describes the feeling of this day.

I just let Shelby out, and three of the cats went out....the wind is so strong it about took the door out of my hand. It is funny, the wind literally howls in the winter. I suppose the foliage of the trees in the summer dampens that sound. That is my reasoning at least, whether it is wrong or right I cannot say.

Now, the fourth cat is out. I hope by the time we leave to go babysit Lorelei that they are all back inside. I don't like to leave and them be out in this type of weather. But two of them have been at me for the past hour at least to let them out. The boys of course....the girls tend to wait patiently most of the time.

The coldest weather so far is supposed to be headed out way. Mama Squirrel was a real little piggy yesterday. I told Roger then I wondered if she was trying to get enough food in her to last for a few days of sleep. Looking back, I bet she knew this weather was coming. I do hope she has a nice hole she sleeps in across the street.

It is about time for my alarm to go off, so I best go shut it off. I have been so off schedule with my sleep, I thought I best set it to be sure I am up early this morn. I hate it when I sleep half the day away....the rest just seems so short and I feel so far behind.
