The elves do giggle, you have to really believe in them to see them. Soon they will be a second for a game of Go Fish or help you wind yarn. They will happily sit and listen to your woes and pat your arm when you are sad. They will also pack up the leftover from a nosh and put them away...usually in their own tummies, means you don't have to eat leftovers!

It's the changing of the seasons. It makes you do strange things.

Me for example. I was going to nothing at all today. So far I have stripped my bed and turned the mattress, did up all the dishes, did three loads of laundry, and a bunch on other piddling things. It is the changing of the seasons.

You need to quit piddling on things, Addie.

If you're like me, you're drooling either over Adam or Blake.

Of course, id Shakira brings the baby on, all bets are off. Baby beats all men in cuteness.

That's what happens when I try to relax. No control over what happens.

kylie, so nice to see you here at the coffeehouse.:) i've been hoping you would stop by sometime. we all know how much kylie enjoys relaxing with a cuppa. and sometimes you just need to take a break from all that ironing and housework, don't you think?

The kitties have stopped their begging for food and with the exercise I have been giving them, I can feel their bones more easily. So a few more pounds off and they should be ready to go back home. Now to train everyone to stop feeding them everytime they drop in for a cuppa as Kylie would say. That's the hard work. As much as I love them, I don't want them to get used to living here. They belong to everyone. When I do send them back I will send the two lights that they love to chase. They will need to keep up their exercising.

yes, the kitties have been at your 'fat farm' for two weeks already, haven't they? i can't wait to see how they will look with their new slenderized figures. whenever you think they are ready to come back, addie, just say the word.:) everybody here misses them a lot, but especially the elves! they are getting into all sorts or mischief lately, and i think it's mostly due to boredom. the kitties always kept them occupied and entertained when they were here. and it must be nice for the elves to have the cats around to play with, them being closer to their size than us giant, lumbering humans... and
i'm sure you could use a rest from the kitties right about now, addie. you probably got more exercise than the cats did, putting them through their paces, indoors and out....
