I tend to pamper my kitties, and over feed them. I think I need to put a couple of them on a diet tho, and get them onto some kind of exercise program. They are starting to look like this. (1 comments) I have been busy dehydrating vegetables. I plan to use these for soups. I am overwhelmed... A friend from over seas very kindly, sent me some money to help us buy cat food for our strays that we feed. I am deeply touched. God is great! I had a friendly morning time visitor, greet me on my front deck today. :) LOL It sure distresses me, when I see people behave in ways that display prejudiced behaviour... such racist remarks, or putting down of people due to their race or religion, is toxic to the soul... I am blessed. Every day that I wake up, I am blessed! 2 of my friends helped me clean my shed that I have for the stray critters, and I went uptown and bought food for the strays, with some money a kind friend sent. God is great! :) (1 comments) I am so excited that we have a new government and leader! Hallelujah! God bless Canada! The next few days are going to be tough for me.

I am enjoying a quiet Sunday, cuddling and playing with my fur-kids. My kitties are my babies. Since I never was blessed with the 2 legged type, I love them just as much as I would human ones. :) I made a special meal for Mom today, since it was her birthday. We had lamb chops, curried cabbage, and potstickers. It turned out very yummy. we had a nice day. For Valentines Day, I stayed at home today, cuddling my kitties. Now this is peaceful. (2 comments) I have been trying all sorts of recipes, using homemade biscuit dough. I am amazed at what biscuit dough can make. :) (2 comments) I wonder how people would react, if I started wearing a veil or head covering at church or when I go to pray, as women are instructed to, in the Bible? (1 Corinthians 11:5) (3 comments) Well, my first confession is behind me. Now tonight... RCIA class. I just have 2 more classes, and then I will be confirmed. (1 comments) YAY!

This is a good idea, for all people to do... My kitty Sweetie, kept coming to me with various toys. Is he trying to tell me something? I think he is trying to get me to spend more time with him and the other kitties, and less time on here... LOL (1 comments) I am grateful for the help, my friends gave me yesterday. Shopping uptown, was insane. I am enjoying a blessed Sunday, and going to mass today with friends and family. :) (1 comments) And so the week begins. Today I hope to get some chores done. The key word is hope. On days like today, I wish cleaning fairies really existed. LOL My Felix decided that our Onslow needed a bath, while Onslow was not so sure he needed one. LOL I wish I had the energy, that my younger 2 kitties have. I would burn off a lot of calories very quickly. Once again, they were tearing around the house, at ninety miles an hour... at 3:00 AM. LOL Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone! Rosie died in the early hours of Friday. The vet phoned me, early on Friday morning, to let me know. I am heartbroken over this.

My chuckle for the day. ;) I have been smoking a bunch of meat in my H2O smoker, these last few days. Today I smoked some beef. I had 3 good sized roasts, that I cut into chunks, and marinated, and then smoked in the smoker. It turned out fantastic. I just need to let it cool now, and then wrap it up, and freeze it. This is just one of the smaller chunks that I smoked, sliced to see how it looks inside. :) I have been smoking a bunch of meat in my H2O smoker, these last few days. Today I smoked some beef. I had 3 good sized roasts, that I cut into chunks, and marinated, and then smoked in the smoker. It is definitely fall. Cold, wet, and windy. Winter is here... And so I trade in my garden tools, for a snow shovel... With the bad weather, we had one of our outside strays, beg to come in, so we now have a new fur-kid. His name is Danny boy, and he is a sweetheart, and well behaved. Halloween was a bit disappointing. We had less than half the usual number of kids visit. I love seeing their costumes. Halloween was a bit disappointing this year. We had way less than half our usual visitors. We usually would get well over a hundred. This year we barely got 45 kids stopping by. Still... I loved seeing the costumes... And I had fun carving the pumpkin. I used my imagination this year, and tried my hand at making it look like a cats face. Today, Mom, my friend Nat and I, went to see the Holiday Train. It stopped in our town. :) Our kitties love sitting and laying down, around our little Christmas tree. Merry Christmas! My fur-kids scored big time with Santa Claws, this year. This doesn't even show a third of what they received. LOL They also received 3 cat stands, and a bunch of yummy treats. Now here is a thought... LOL Yep.
