Today will be spent at home to give a sore shoulder a rest. After helping move some rather large objects at the property, my shoulder is now protesting and I am on muscle relaxers which, by the way, knock you off your feet. I also want to catch up on grooming the cats and dog. Everyone needs a nail trimming (Sorry, Audrey but that includes you) and I want to keep a close eye on Lily as she is showing signs of her age and becoming more frail. She lives by the gas-stove on her cushions and wakes up on and off to have a bite to eat or use the box. She sleeps most of the day now and her feedings are smaller but more often throughout the day. I also add warm water to her soft food now to get more liquid into her wee body. She still enjoys Annie's company and every day now that we have her in our life I feel is a gift.
Most of the Christmas decor is put away but the little bird tree will stay for awhile longer.
The bright lights and the beautiful birds give you a lift on these cold, wintry days.
Work continues at the property. The retired-guy is there now making plans for the next few weeks. The insulation, walls and floor are to be done next in the mouse- house. We have a keen team that are ready to finish it up even in this cold so I expect this should go quickly. At that point we should be able to get our occupancy permit and will begin the move.
So the new year will bring many changes and lots of excitement for us. I hope to keep posting so I can share our move with you all. I know there will be days when I need your encouragement which is something I have come to realize I can find here. I thank you so much for that.
"Happy New Year to everyone" and I hope your year is filled with much love and countless blessings. Thank you so much for your friendship throughout the past year.
Please hug your kitties for me
and stay toasty,
