Monday Miscellany

A fond farewell to September; what a beautiful month it has been. Busy one for the family, with all kinds of things going on. Most notably the buying of the new property--one week to go till we close, very exciting times!! Also, we have spent time consulting new doctors for my husband, and think we have made progress.  He has been experiencing more problems with the draining infection, but a new specialist has been seen and we have confidence this will provide a good solution. He will also be seen soon by new surgeons who will be providing the reconstruction surgery in December or January. This has been a long, long journey for my hubby.

Preparing for winter here has started. We have the chimney sweep coming today to take care of the fireplace and wood stove. (the cats are not going to like being shut into the bedroom).
A big stack of firewood should be arriving this week too. Cozy nights by the fire make a snowstorm a little easier to cope with.

Friday night at the movies (in the family room). We watched "World War Z" starring Brad Pitt. Whew, did that have some intense scenes!  A different type of zombie. A good movie, a tad overlong.

Looking forward to another busy week, beautiful weather and maybe even an artistic endeavor I am hoping to undertake one day this week. If I am successful in my creativity, I will take a picture.

Gotta go, Pyewacket is causing chaos in the dining room.

Pyewacket tells Pixie, "Don't tell Mom where I am hiding."

I hardly remember September. Since retirement, all the days seem to meld together. Wow, have your kitty's grown. They are so beautiful. Glad to hear that hubby is doing better and hopes his health continues to improve.
