Sorry for being invisible the last week or so, but this was the first time in over a year that I have actually had the time to read for more than 20 minutes during the day, so I am taking advantage of it.

I hope you all have a Happy and safe New Year!!

I had to wake her up to get this shot, so she doesn't look to happy. Well, I figure that since she wakes us up EVERY morning, turn-about is fair play...

A Power Nap Done Right

Both the kids were slammed this last week with unit exams and papers being due. I still have to help my oldest with an algebra unit exam and then I am done for a few weeks. Hey, maybe I can finally have the time to actually read or write something!

So, how are you spending your Christmas break...

Birdie TV

A view from our window. As you can see, the our cats have a great view of the show. On the left,you can see the tip of a tail as they take a break for intermission...

Hint: look at the vertical window divider and you will see the birds.

The Life of the Party

I was supposed to fix the toilets this weekend, but instead I had to help my oldest with science and math. The topic in science was genetics and gene mapping and the math junk was about complex numbers (using both real numbers and imaginary numbers; solving problems, and then graphing the results)...not my favorite way to spend a weekend. Believe it or not, I would have been much happier tearing our toilets apart.

Now, on to the star of the show....

Here we see our ample cat stretched out on our table. We used this table for Thanksgiving to hold the drinks and snacks. If you look closely, you can see him sticking his tongue out at us... some nerve, huh?

A Fun Weekend Planned

Guess what I'll be doing this weekend...

Yep, one of our toilets has started running, so I figured I would take some time and fix it. Since I'll be gutting the innards of one of them, I figured I might as well do the other one as well. Although the job only requires a flapper valve, I decided to just replace everything. Also, since I am so strapped for things to write about, I'll be doing a how-to article, complete with pictures. I know, you can barely wait.

Just trying to watch a football game, when Yum Yum decides to sit in front of the television. I guess everyone's a critic...

Snow Day

Actually, for the first time in many years, the schools closed for the day (Wednesday). Anyhow, here are the rest of the snow pictures that I took. We had roughly 7+ inches on the ground and when I went out to shovel it (we don't have a snow blower, since it is rare we get this much snow at one time), I quickly discovered that it was a wet, slushy-type of snow; that means more work. Heavy work. Not a good thing, especially for someone lazy like me.

Well, as I said, when I went outside to shovel, I saw out neighbor already shoveling our section of the frontage road. When I got closer, I saw why: he couldn't get his truck onto it. So, the fun began. Together, we were able to shovel to his house and then onto ours. In the process, I helped dig his wife's car out of the snow and he kindly dug a path up our driveway to our garage. In all, it took a total of just over three hours (including breaks) to finish (with an hour and a half just for our driveway). Oh, and so I can have an excuse to include a shameless plug, if you have not seen the photos from the previous evening, you can see them here in the post titled, Let it Snow...Let it Snow...Let it Snow Now, onto the show...

The next day...

Da pun...

Let it Snow...Let it Snow...Let it Snow...

I figured that I would bore you with some photos taken during our latest snow storm. Enjoy...

These are the little trash cans we use to store the bird and squirrel food. This was taken at around 10:00 pm last night...
