Resting up for Spring :)

It snowed all day today with little or no accumulation.  We woke up with a dusting of snow on the ground and we are going to bed with less, despite it snowing all day long.  It was pretty though and even Jimmy enjoyed watching it snow today, which is unusual for him.  He doesn't normally like snow or the colder months of the year.

We have a warm fire going and the cats didn't even want to venture outside very much.  We did have four cats who went out twice, but they sure didn't stay out for very long.  I don't blame them, I didn't stay out for very long either.  Just long enough to see what one of the cats was looking at, that caused her to come back inside so quickly.  It was just a feral cat stopping by to eat up the chicken noodle soup that Jimmy didn't finish eating.

We didn't do much today but watch the cats play and watched some TV.  Jimmy went out three times to break the ice out of the cats water bowl and to give them fresh water.  Just like people feed the birds in the winter, we make sure that the feral cats outside have fresh water and food to eat.  We used to feed the birds until one flew into our brand new window and cracked it.  We didn't find a dead bird beneath the window, so it must have just got knocked senseless, and then flew away.  Poor bird :(

So there you have it!  Our day in a nutshell.
