Good morning, Friends.
Today's blog will be a mishmash of topics.
Starting off, let us remember the fallen. Those whose lives were lost keeping our country free from tyranny.
Today we honour them and those who continue to serve - our military, police, fire, medical and so much more. We truly appreciate their sacrifice.
As you may have read on our Facebook page our power was turned off to facilitate a maintenance issue. Things went well and the power was re-established an hour or more before anticipated. This was great.
Our only incident was one light which Grammy forgot to turn off. It lit up the condo at 4:30 AM. Etude and Whiskers were upset by this and decided to battle it out on Grammy's pillow. Groggy with sleep, Grammy tried to shoo them off the bed and ended up with a 19 pounder's hind foot, claws extended on her left eye and cheek. There is some swelling around the eye and the lid and cheek are scratched but the eye seems to have been spared. Might you call this an eye-catching experience?
Now here we are this morning, the gas has been turned off to repair a faulty valve. We'll see how this goes. So far we have hot water in the taps and heat coming from the furnace but as the boilers cool that could change. Hope it stays warm for the rest of the day. Meantime we are snuggling with each other. Sweetie is in her wee condo bed. The chubbos are together on the sofa and Mousie is in her tent waiting for me to finish the blog and join her.
And it is snowing outside. Upon waking there was a dusting on the rooves around us. Now it is accumulating on railings and planters as well while that which hits the ground melts. The weather people are calling for 10 - 15 centemetres… that's 4 - 6 inches. While it'll look so pretty we don't really like the idea of Grammy going out in it - especially if the wet ground freezes as the temperature drops. Yuck!
And lastly, the exercise plan for Sir Chubbo Etude has gone off the rails. Grammy is going to give it another go after we post this blog. Grammy got busy and then overtired and let things slip. Tsk, tsk, Grammy.
Well, dear friends, that's all for this week. Enjoy the photos... and we'll see you in the funny papers. *giggles* What does that mean? Grammy says it and it sounds so goofy.
