I will try to send you some warm air!
Thanks, the warm air seems to be arriving.

I am trying to multi task. It is not working. I got all the dry ingredients for the cake in a large zippy bag. Then I decided to tackle the frosting. I got the butter melted and added the cocoa just fine. Then I decided to make a cup of coffee at the same time. I poured the cream in a bowl instead of my cup. I decided it was time to take a break and sit down. I can see it is going to be a long day. One chore at a time Addie, just one chore.
Aw heck, I'm forever pouring orange juice into my coffee...

Hold on to the memories these events create. They'll be so nice to think back on when Papa and Mamma are back home. Maybe you could pat DA on her head as you pass by?
That's so very sweet, CG! Yes, I love these little memories. Every time I pass DA and she can't see me, I say, "Watch out! Kissy monster!" and I kiss her on her cheek as I scoot by. She loves that.

Carl has been staying here for the beginning of the holidays. He will leave on Monday to be with his family. We're having so very much fun, and because Lakisha's uncle now lives with them and he is retired from the post office, they are doing well and Lakisha is able to spend some nights here too.

I love this time with my two best friends and my precious family! This is certainly what some say, "the time of your life." It truly is!

With love,
~Cat

Sorry about that. I didn't do anything, really.

We're expecting a few flurries and temps all the way up to -1C.

I really really enjoyed The Sing -Off! Now, Michael Buble special!

I had to find something to fill the Survivor time slot.

I tell you I am surrounded by idiots!
I can relate!

Water coming through your ceiling is alarming, Addie! We had a roof leak in our Brasov home. This came through one of the ridgecaps and it was nearly impossible to trace until PapaCat climbed up into the attic and found it, for it had run through an area and came out away from the leak.

I hope this gets fixed quickly for you, Addie. Roof leaks can be very damaging.

One time, PapaCat thought there was a leak when Cat was about 7 years old. The leak was over the 2nd floor study, and he put the ladder from our bedroom balcony up onto the roof. The next thing he knew, little Cat was climbing up the ladder saying, "I'll help you, Papa!"

Now our little Cat has just been told by Carl he loves her, so Lakisha and I have discreetly left the lair. We told PapaCat, and we are upstairs hoping Cat will be nice about it.

We don't know what to expect, but her Papa isn't worried. Let's see what happens.

MammaCat

No worries, Taxy. No blame intended. Our snow will be gone in 24 hours anyway.

TB is suffering from the flu. He has called in for tomorrow and has gone to bed. I am staying in my chair to a) not bet the flu and b) be more comfortable with my pain. The furkids have divided their loyalty. Violet is curled up on the bed with her "Daddy" and Monkey is on my lap.
