January Musings

Willow is popping by with a quick hello. She and Emily had were curled up next to each other on the sofa today. I was happy to see them "kind of" getting along. I will have to upload the photos and hope that one of them is clear enough to post!
Emily had a vet appointment on Thursday. She had yet another matt that needed to be removed. The vet also tested her blood sugar again. This time it was down which was a relief. After weeks of drab, dreary and grey weather it looks like snow is starting to fall again. Stay warm and cozy.

Eve of the New Year

Emily is stopping by to say hello and to wish everyone a happy New Year! She went to the vet a few days ago for grooming. The vet warmed my heart by saying that "Having a sister for Emily has done her a world of good." It has been an interesting week. I worked a half day today. The walk home, though wet and sloppy, was not nearly as nasty as the snow storm last week. When I left work last week the wind was so strong I couldn't move forward without a struggle. How things change!
Willow and Emily both love their new Christmas toy! I found it after Christmas but I don't think they hold that against me.
I was expecting Willow to like the toy but Emily loves it as well. Emily acts like a kitten when I bring out the feather mouse.
The snow from last week's storm has melted away. I think that there are now flood warnings. Wishing everyone a safe, healthy, and happy New Year!

Christmas Eve

Hello. Happy Christmas Eve to everyone who celebrates this holiday! I was expecting to write this post after Christmas. However, due to snowstorm/blizzard conditions my visit to family has been cancelled. Right now, I am envisioning them sitting around the table to a festive feast. The presents will have been opened already. My mother and sister had just a short drive to my sister's home but that was a bit dicey. I'm not sorry we decided that it was not a good idea for me to go today-the roads are a mess. I am feeling rather let down, though. It is lovely and quiet at home. Emily and Willow have been snoozing together peacefully. (The photo above is Willow)
In anticipation of the coming bad weather, I did all of my usual housework. It is a satisfying feeling to have most of my "chores" done. I also cooked up a couple of different meals ahead of time in case the hydro went out. Miss Emily is wishing you a happy Christmas in the above photo! :)
And though this weather is frightful-it is also very beautiful! Wishing all of you, person and feline, a happy, healthy Christmas!

Wandering into Winter

Hello! Willow and Emily dropping by to say hello. Time has rushed by these past few weeks. Autumn blazed in beautiful colour for a few short weeks and then, before I knew it, winter snow arrived.
I tried to find my gloves and mittens but they remain hidden somewhere in my apartment! Thankfully, I have a hand warmer that I keep in my winter coat. That helps alot!
Emily and Willow "helped" me to start decorating for the Christmas season. Well, if truth be told, the tree isn't coming out this year. I feel Miss Willow would drag it somewhere and then destroy it. She recently demolished a fishing lantern that had belonged to my Mom. It is official. Willow is one of my kitty brats -she has destroyed something I loved :) No worries, though. Mom found me a safer little tree for this year.
(not my photo) So far this tiny tree has stayed upright on my credenza. I think back to last Christmas when I still had my little bear, Winston, I miss my little guy so much. I'm so very thankful for Emily and Willow. I am trying to find a wet catfood, with lots of gravy, for Emily. She is very fussy and I haven't been able to find anything she likes. I welcome any suggestions for a healthy, wet kitty food-prefereably one with gravy. Take care.

Autumn Musings

Hello. I recently enjoyed a week of vacation. Autumn seems to have come early this year. I was happy about this. I enjoying "leaf peeping" wherever I can. But before all that-Emily says hello. She enjoys cuddling when the weather turns frosty.
The cool air is refreshing after the sultry summer weather.
It is the perfect time to enjoy a warm beverage while you read a book.
Willow is getting bigger and, though I didn't think it was possible, even more spunky. Her favourite toys are emply toilet paper rolls and straws. I like that these are nice, cheap toys.
Blue Jay sighting at the park!
It was a quiet staycation. That isn't always a bad thing. I will close for now with this funny from Pinterest.

Happy First Day of Autumn!

Hello. Happy first day of autumn. This morning it certainly felt like autumn. The air was brisk and frosty. My apartment temperature was at 55 F. Brr. Definetely time to turn on the heat. Thankfully, Emily and Willow like to cuddle. This is Miss Emily snuggling against my leg.
A couple of nights ago I got caught in a bad thunderstorm as I was walking home from work. Even with a rain coat and hood I was drenched by the time I got home. I squelched up the stairs and reminded Emily and Willow how fortunate they are that they were warm and dry inside. I warmed up with a hot chocolate.
I wish this photo was my apartment but it was taken a few years ago at a cabin I rented for a family outing :) Still, it is cozy!
Willow continues to delight me with her antics and spicey sweetness. She also continues to enjoy thieving-the furry little runt!
Signs of fall are all around me. I am looking forward to have a vacation in less then 2 weeks time. Willow and Emily will close for now with a funny from Pinterest.
