is damp and cold like the weather across the central and eastern part of Texas. I know that it is nothing like what the Northeastern part of the country is or has been going through. The temperature has been in the mid-twenties today and is supposed to be down to 20 tonight. Not too bad, considering. But couple that with the northern wind and the chill factor is in the low teens or single digits. Once again, I know that the temperatures and chill factors are worse in pretty much the rest of the country, but temps like these are not as common here as else where. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, just stating facts.
Of course, anyone who has raised or who are raising children, know that days like this are hard on parents and children. The children get bored and want to be entertained, so in some cases they start to pick arguments with their siblings. This sometimes leads to a frustrating day for the parents. Now, there are no children in this house on the bayou, human children, I must add. Now let’s talk about the feline children. Today has been a series of opening the front door and letting cats out only to make it back to the kitchen or recliner just to have them beating down the back door to get back in. My goodness, it’s cold outside. Not only that but the ones who spend the majority of their time outside, and only come in to eat, decided today is a good day to be underfoot. Now, bored children have nothing on bored cats. What do we do, we pick arguments with pretty much every other feline in the house. They can’t all do it a one time, they have to spread it out over the entire day. Then amazingly, when it’s time to be fed, everyone’s on good behavior. These cats that we have rescued, adopted, or have been talked into caring for, are worse than kids. But, as Susan did, I love them all. Needless to say, it’s been a hectic day. But it has helped me to decide to post to the blog. I needed that.
I also have to say thanks to someone who sent a card and a kind message of sharing. It has helped get me thinking about the blog, and those who follow the postings. Today I decided to post the experience I went thru today. I plan to post soon with updates on CT scans, Burkett VFD news, and Life On The Bayou. I apologize for not posting in a while. It is my plan to do better in the future. One of these days I will learn how to post pictures also. It will probably take one of the our daughters showing me how. But sooner or later I’ll learn.
May all of you have a blessed day, month, year, life.
