It is freezing here and we had a bit of snow today. Monika spends most of her time lying on top of the heating vent. I was going to rake some leaves to today but they will be wet and snowy.
I am trying the birds on some new bird seed. This is because it comes in 15 pound bags rather than the 30 pound bags which I usually buy from Costco. These are a bit hard to manage – but not as bad as the kitty litter which comes in 42 pound bags and at the moment and are quite beyond me.
Cate has got me using clumping cat litter. It’s not the cats who clump but the litter. Clumping cat litter sort of – well – clumps – and can be moved about in clumps. I first used this when we came to Indy and lived at Carmel. I hated the clumping stuff then but it is sort of growing on me. Anyway Cate – even though she is not the designated KL person – insists that I use it – so I am.
I ordered our Christmas tree to be delivered on about 15 December but we have discovered that this is far too late. The neighborhood is festooned with trees and wreaths and lights and we feel quite left out. Besides – we do not wish to be known as the people who do not celebrate Christmas as there is probably a penalty for this type of behavior in the mid west.
If people ask me which church I go to I just say that I haven’t found the right one yet. This is preferable to saying that I do not go to church and watching the looks of shock and horror on their faces as they fumble with their phones to call 911.
