Winter weather

Winter has arrived... for a few days. The wind is actually howling outside, the trees are creaking and rubbing together making an ungodly noise. We are warm inside with the fireplace going to help the heat pump that seems to be in hyper drive trying to keep this place warm. The cats are draped about the furniture and the dogs are peacefully stretched out in their kennels with the doors still open. We'll close them when we retire.
Earlier today the dogs were 'sharing' the egg pan. Belle had control and Penny helplessly looked on until Belle tired and gave up the pan.

The evenings have brought some great sunsets. This was another night, but is representative of most lately. Today brought sun and rain and sleet and snow squalls all while we were heading to Caines 4th birthday party. I find it so amazing whenever I see him and he talks to me using his big raspy voice and his big words. He's very smart and a loving child...

Mac is sprawled in one of the recliners. He's huge, very fluffy, blue-eyed and often cross-eyed! My nephew Matt calls him the Buick..he's about the same size...

I have no more mini horses, I gave the last 2 away to the same people who took the first 2, so they are all together again, and are doing really well. Horses are communal animals anyway, and I am glad they are with the people who have them. they're well cared for and enjoyed. Gotta say I do miss them being in the field though.

Changes..change is good, sometimes hard to do and tough to make the adjustments, but overall, a good thing.

I'm watching a stink bug walk across the chair rail behind my computer..

some things never change.

Is that cat part Siamese? My Siamese, Mojo, is cross-eyed.

Oh, the stink bugs! I'm praying I don't have them as bad up here!
