Winter has arrived with a vengeance in much of the country. Even here in the South of TN we had snow showers on Monday. Boy were the kids excited. It only stuck on the cars and roofs though and didn't last long. Tonight's low is supposed to be 24 with a high of 38 tomorrow. Oh my goodness. I guess this old bear will hibernate. LOL.
OK, I'm going to talk about my cat again. Sorry, I just can't help it. First of all Gizmo is a girl and I stole her name from Sonya's cat at
My Southern Home. I just thought it was a cute name but I guess it would be better suited for a boy cat. Oh well, she is stuck with it now.
I should have called her fearless because she is not afraid of the things most cats are afraid of. For example, she loves riding in the car and a pet carrier is not necessary. She just sits in my lap and looks out the window. Also, she likes water. If I want to take a shower alone I have to lock her out. She jumps right in and I end up having to blow dry her (which she also doesn't mind). But the best thing is she doesn't shed (yet). Smokey was a bad shedder and I was constantly using a sticky roller on everything. This may change, but for now I'm lovin' it. OK, enough about Gizmo.
I had decided not to put out any of my Christmas goodies this year. Gizmo is one reason and laziness is the other. Well, my g/daughter wasn't having it. She came down Sunday and set up my little tree (on a high shelf) and decorated it. She also put out my big porcelain nativity and some other things and hung my wreath on the door. She said she would help me wrap stuff after I get hers wrapped and carry everything to her house so Gizmo wouldn't get into it. We do Christmas Eve down there so that works for me. She's a good kid and that's a brag (but true).
I guess I will get going. I hear the school bus and I'm watching my g/son this afternoon while his mom and sister go to the clinic. I think they both have sinus infections, which are so bad in this part of the country. I don't know anyone who doesn't suffer with sinus problems.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
