Whole lot of snow today. I've found that part of being around the house more means that I'm privy to the secret life of the cats, which involves a lot of watching squirrels on the porch.
I've been referring to the big sliding glass doors as cat reality TV and lately? It's all about the Squirrel Channel. Squirrels in the birdfeeder, squirrels on the railing, squirrels running around on the porch ... Angus and Spoot and Mab can't get enough. I found some field corn in an already-harvested field around here, and brought a sack back for the squirrels and birds in the name of entertaining the cats.
(although I've been wondering, as I watch the hairy beasts hoover down expensive birdseed - does the kind of birdseed with red pepper on it do anything to keep squirrels away as the package promises? I saw some at the store today and if it works, it would solve some problems around here.)
The other thing I've been doing more of lately is quilting. Again, the cats are fans. I got an idea for a batik quilt in my head the other day and wasn't able to get it out, so I had to drop everything and go to the basement for a couple hours to start on it.
Angus joined me. Whenever I tried to pull a piece of fabric out from under him that I needed, he grabbed my hand with his paws and tried to bite me. Fun times.
Oh! One last thing. We got nominated for a "You Made My Day" award by Needledancer (sorry; can't get blog link to work - grr.) Which is really really sweet and, well, thanks!
