Ruby here. You know what? I love winter. Well except for those snowy days when my Daddy (Knitting Hubby Momma calls him) picks me up from a perfectly good nap and throws me in a snow bank. News at 11.
Anyway, like Chaos and Mayhem, the nappin’ is great and the livin’ is easy as they say. My fur comes in handy because Momma won’t let anyone turn the heat up past about 34F in the house. Or at least it feels like it. Occassionally she’ll cover me with my special Rowan Chunky Tweed moss stitch blankie. But the best thing of course is the bird watching. I have a viewing stand right by the dining room window. Just past the snowbank that Daddy throws me in, is a big pine tree with two bird feeders and a suet cake. Sure it’s there in the other seasons but by early summer all the house wrens have been scared off by the mean old magpies.
This time of year? The best. I get to watch the junco’s, and quail and other little munchies…I mean birds. I could stay in that window all day long and watch. But some times the warm sun shine streams in between the branches of the tree and it’s nap time once again.
The other good thing about this time of year is that Boy is home from school. He luckily got home last Friday on the last Greyhound that was able to leave from Seattle to where we live 210 miles east. He gives me lots of pets and loves. I have to bank them up for when he’s not here. He’s a great big brother to have even if he isn’t furry and walks on two legs.
Momma finished her second woven scarf in a record two days. I helped this time with the twisted fringe. A few too many times though I think cause Momma has put it up for now and says she’ll wash and dry it later.
OH OH – the Fedex Man just got here (at 9:25pm). And the tag says something about Wisconsin Cheese on it. I’m betting its something from Grandma Hazel. And I am sure it’s for me. Those Wisconsin cats are so lucky to live in the land of cheese.
Well time to wake up from my nap and go to bed. g’night!
