Happy Days Are Here Again!

Kat Walk

Spring is always my favourite time of year and this one is looking to be a grand one.  Most years, we are up to our hips in snow until at least mid April.  This year, our snow is practically gone and the streets and sidewalks are mostly dry.   Dan and I have been taking Kat for her daily walks this week.  She has been wearing her stylish blue boots for dealing with the unavoidable puddles. 

I heard from our sons this week.   Everything is going fairly well for both of them.  And…  Grandbaby #10 is on the way! 💞

Our seedlings continue to thrive and our indoor plants are starting to bud and bloom.

Have a beautiful spring weekend!

Sense of Accomplishment

Some days you can feel a major sense of accomplishment by investing a seemingly small amount of time and effort. Other days, like today, that sense of accomplishment is just not there.

Lately we have made a few adjustments in our life. One of the adjustments we have made was to give up Kat’s groomer (since they were closed for Covid-19 reasons) and invest in a set of pet clippers.

Grooming tools

Dan has been grooming Kat but since he is on his fifth shift in a row tonight and Kat was looking pretty straggly, I decided to step up to the challenge.

Straggly Kat

I got out everything I would need, including all of our grooming equipment, a fold up metal table, a vinyl tablecloth and of course – Kat.

For two hours, I wrestled with Kat while she did her best to avoid clippers, combs and the like. She fell off the table three times – fortunately onto my lap each time.

By the time I ‘finished’, there was a goodly amount of fur to show for my efforts.

Groomed Kat – sort of 🙄

At least I got her ears trimmed! Maybe we will both feel like continuing the battle after a walk. 🌞
