winter watch

it's been very cold here in the mitten state, with lots of snow. i'm on the woodpile, makin' sure all is well. my Mom is feelin' better, thankfully, and it looks like we're goin' to have christmas after all!! she's been shoppin' and bakin' cookies. plus she has 13 whole days off from her work!! she told me that we are goin' to be a little quieter this year and a little more thankful for everything we have, includin' each other. the sad times that my Secret Paw, Eppy, and her Cowboy have been goin' thru have made us step back a little and 'ppreciate the good stuff we have in our lives, like each other. we send them purrayers.

annnnd, my Mom said maybe i can open my Secret Paw present before christmas!!! i hope so, i get so excited whenever i think about it - i wonder who sent it????? (and if Diva Kitty's Mom says again that she knows, i'm gonna bite her!!)

Footnote: Wednesday - Dec.21 2005
Eppy, my Secret Paw, went to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. my Mom and i will light a candle tonight to help light her way. love to Cowboy - you eased her way over with love and more caring than many people receive. may you be at peace knowing you did right by her.

You stay warm, I won't go out and play in the snow. I stay in where it is nice and warm.

Mum wishes she had as much time off from work as yours has. This is muum's busy time.

Oh Edsel, those pictures of the snow are making the two-legged one homesick for the mitten state. My auntie says that she's shoveled a lot of snow already and winter doesn't officially start until Wednesday. I hope that you stay warm and cozy. I'm glad that your Mom is feeling better. The TLO and I agree about being thankful for the good things we have. When it gets right down to it, the love we share with those around us is what really matters. The news about Eponine has been very sad but it's good to know that she and her Cowboy will always be bound by their love for another.

We are SO jealous. We've never had that many days in a row with our Mom at home with us.

Hi Edsel! I updated my blog tonight! Mom and I want to thank you for introducing Eponine on your blog so that we could see what a special life she lived. Edsel, you look very important up on that woodpile. I hope I can do something that important for my family someday. My Mom says you are very very handsome. I didn't want to write that but she made me. Hope you got a good Secret Paw present!

Oh I'm glad you get to open your Secret Paw present before Christmas AND your Mom's doing Christmassy stuff. I was worried about you cuz you were scared Christmas wouldn't come. 13 Mom days is great! Yall will have lots of fun. All of us here are saying lots of purrayers for Eppy and her Cowboy. He's a very brave and good Cowboy and did so good by her.

That is a great picture. My Mom and Dad took me out in the snow once when we lived in Iowa, and I know I'd find a high perch if I had to do it again!
