Emily, the birthday girl!

On Monday, Miss Emily will turn 11 years old! I had been planning on getting her a heated bed but reality decided to come calling. Their water fountain broke and I bought a new one.
(not my photo) As soon as I was able, I bought a replacement. It was exactly the same (only more expensive) but both Emily and Willow mistrusted the new fountain. By the second day they were both lapping from the bubbly fountain. Phew!
Willow celebrated 2 years here and she was gifted a rainbow unicorn. She loves it so much that I have to hide it before going to bed.
Work is, as always, extra busy. Since Covid, things have become more stressful. I have some time off coming up soon and I'm hoping to rest up .
A friend took me out for a (late) birthday lunch.
It was very "cozy" but the food was amazing. I'm also enjoying the beautiful spring flowers
The lilacs are blooming early this year. I hope they are still out when I am finally able to get out with my camera. Emily and Willow send purrs. I will try and visit your blogs once my vacation begins ! I will close with a funnie from Pinterest

Happy 2nd Gotcha Day, Willow!

This little fluff has been with us for 2 years! Hope everyone had a good week and a restful day.

Celebrating My Aging Process!

Sweet Miss Em is here to say hello! We hope everyone has been managing OK. I recently chose to celebrate my aging process :) I was thankful to have a visit from a few of my family memebers.
They remembered that I like pie :) I had Dutch apple crumble pie for my b-day. It was yummy.
Everyone spoiled me with lovely gifts: baked goods, a favorite DVD, a book store gift card and this little stuffie. Apparently, it is a positive potato. He cracked me up. I keep him at work.
Willow has been snuggly. One minute she is a cuddle bug and the next minute she is swiping at me with her murder mittens.
March came in like a lamb with unseasonably warm weather. But the climate pendulum is swinging back and forth between winter and spring.
The snowdrops were out early. They are one of my favourite spring flowers.
We had snow, rain, and graupel. I had never heard of graupel before :) Work is still busy and I don't seem to have the energy to do the things I enjoy as much. (good grief-I sound super old but I'm not!) Hoping to visit everyone soon. I'm closing with a close up of Willow's toe beans because they make me happy!

February Days

Hello! We are stopping by to see how everyone is doing. Willow is looking extra "floofy" in this photo. I'm so thankful that, when she isn't being feisty, she is a complete cuddle bug.
Emily has the cutest toe tufts! The weather is changeable. It feels like spring has come early. Maybe too early. I noticed snowdrops peeking through the earth on my walk to work recently. I don't usually see them until March.
Life has become very busy lately. Sometimes it seems like I don't have time to do the things I love. Be well! Closing with some funnies to make you (hopefully) smile.

Holiday Activities

Emily wishes you all a "happy New Year!" The holiday season was hectic but I was able to visit with family on Christmas Eve. This was my first family visit in 3 years. The first 2 years Covid was responsible for the missed reunion. Last year there was a blizzard. My sister lives out of town and much of the day was spent driving. Not only did I get to see my family but I met my nephew's dog, Hazel!
Hazel is a toy beagel. I was twiterpated with this little woofie! Later that day, I was also able to make it to a Christmas Eve service. This is the first service I went to in years.
I also went with a friend to see a ballet. Another first since Covid. First, we went out for a yummy lunch. We both had baklava for dessert!
Then off to the ballet!
On my week off I did housework and ran errands. I even discovered a fun (but expensive) candy store!
Willow wishes you a lovely rest of the day! I bought them a new scratching post for Christmas. Unfortunately, neither Emily or Willow like it :( I am planning to visit your blogs over the coming week. Purrs from Emily and Willow!

On the Eve of Christmas

Emily and Willow say hello! The month of December, at least for me, has been busy. Hopefully, Willow and Emily are just enjoying their naps, kibbles and cuddles.
Work was, as always, busy. I'm finally able to enjoy some time off over the holidays. Emily is relaxing in this photo. She is such a spicy little cute heart.
A friend took me to a Christmas tree farm. In addition to all of the trees, the tree farm had a barn filled with seasonal items to buy.
I fell in love with this cute little bird in glasses ♥
Willow discovered the cozy comfort of my heated throw. While the weather has been cold there has been very little snow. We have had rain, a bit of snow, a bit of freezing rain and fog.
Earlier this month, I had a Christmas tea with another friend. We talked much too long but it was fun!
This is my Christmas tree again this year. Miss Willow still finds sparkly, shiny things a tempation. So far, this tiny tree has remained upright.
It has been a busy Saturday. I did a lot of housework AND wrapped most of my Christmas gifts. This is a photo of Willow supervising (or judging!) my gift wrapping session :) Wishing everyone who celebrates a very Merry Christmas. I'm hoping to visit your blogs over the next couple of days! Purrs from Emily and Willow.

November is cuddle season

Hello! Emily looks tuckered out here :) It is exhausting being a cat! Work has been extra busy with staff sickness and a few vacations. When I do get a weekend off it is playing a game of catch up. Thank goodness Emily and Willow like to demonstrate effective relaxation techiniques.
Autumn is here and is slowly shifting into the colder temperatures. I love the glow of fall leaves. There are still a few trees with leaves on them in my area.
Halloween has also come and gone. Some of my neighbours really get into decorating. I tend to towards The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown style of decorating. Of course, there is always the 50 % sales on November 1.
With the arrival of cooler weather, I find Emily and Willow tend to be more snuggly. That is something I can get on board with! I hope everyone is doing well.
