Two pictures of Emmie by the Buddha…taken through several panes of dirty windows, so sorry for the fuzzy look

She’s such a fabulous and gentle cat.  So sweet and nice.  I wish she would let me pick her up and hug her but she’s not into that.  She lets me pet her and that’s enough.

How dark is it????

It’s so dark outside that the solar powered plastic dancing flower that is in the WESTERN window of my kitchen is barely moving her leaves.  THAT”S how dark it is…AGAIN.  Do NOT move here if you enjoy nice weather, sunny days, warm temps, outdoor activities (unless you count playing at night in rain, below zero temps, snow and ice), being able to tell whether it’s night or day, enjoy eating outside, reading outside, sitting outside, doing ANYTHING outside, flowers, grass, anything green.  If you like things like that, this isn’t the place for you.  If you like brown stuff and mud, have at it.  If you love the color gray, pack your bags and head this way.  If you enjoy heavy clothing and always having the heat on when you drive, move here immediately.  If you enjoy laying on the floor because you’re too tired to move and you don’t know if it’s five at night or five in the morning, you will love it here.  Seriously, if you would enjoy terrible weather for 47 weeks in a row…welcome to Chicago.  Having said that, for the most part, this is the best winter we’ve had in a LONG time.
