Enlighten Me

I seem to have run in a great circle, and met myself again on the starting line.

It's a magical world, and I am exploring. (to paraphrase Calvin)

***end of 2014*** I need to get re-focused and make exercise a regular part of the day. Since losing 20+ pounds with SP several years ago, my life got somewhat complicated, and the weight started creeping back up. As 2014 ends, I'm rethinking what I need to do to reach my goals.....

Tim-min started coming in for the night around 8 years of age, because I thought, well, she getting older and maybe arthritic. She has been outside for extended periods while we've been away over a weekend in the winter and longer period in summer, spring or fall. But my poor kitty was out for 5 nights when the windchills were super high and there was another cat around (super feral black cat who takes off if he/she sees you in the window) eating her food and maybe staying in her shelter too. I don't know what goes on when I'm not here. Wish I had a kitty cam strapped to her head sometimes! I think maybe she got so used to staying in that she'd abandoned her hidey holes. I just don't know. I formally made her indoor cat this week because the temps are still really cold. We've apparently broken a record of 32 (and counting) days of below normal temperatures for this time of year. The last string of cold days like this occurred in 1934. Frankly I am READY for some warmer weather. I'm very weary of the cold and dragging around my wool blanket where ever I go in the house. And cold toilet seats!! I am so done with cold toilet seats!

Ti-min is indeed an outdoor cat, but much less so in the winter. She is going to be 14 this summer and the windchills here have been super high for an extended period of time. Frostbite could get her again. :-(

Keep plodding through the Doerr book...I felt the same way...like he was trying to impress us with his vocabulary or something...but then, either he stopped or I got too much into the story to notice.
