Cats are back inside tonight. Opened the door to bring in some wood for the fire and the cats came in too. Momma and baby kitty are on the rug in front of the fire. Groucho is on the back of the sofa asleep. Whiskers is behind the woodstove sleeping. Wild cat didn't come in tonight though it is out on the porch eating.

William is on his way to Oregon. He left out this afternoon. We got more firewood cut and he split alot. He also helped me with some soap orders, newsletters, and tags. I got a couple of local orders to get out tomorrow and some errands so going to finish up making a batch of soap and call it a night.

Kitchen is still a war zone but at least I can use the stove and sink. Have to run from kitchen to dining room to get something stored there for now or to every other room in the house to find what I need in the kitchen but so far I am dealing with it. Please oh please let it be done before Christmas!

I am working on my swap packages and hope to get them out next week. Anyone in the stocking swap that hasn't been in touch with their swap partner please let me know and I will give you a new partner.

Now I am going to enjoy a cup of cocoa and sit by the fire till my soap is ready to pour. Have a blessed night!

I sweep off the snow from the back porch and feed my catrs out there is the snow. It is a brief rest for me not having cats everywhere.

I have a small red squirrel living in my basement in the woodpile. I wonder if it will survive the cats?

By the way, basements (le cave, in French) are wonderful spaces, I noticed so many houses in the American south do not have basements.

Busy busy for you as always!! I have had a headache week so it has not been one of my favorite weeks by far. I am going to work this afternoon hoping that i am on the mend!! I cannot blame those cats for coming inside where it is warm. We have very cool nights in the 30's but the day time so far is in the 60;s GREAT weather!! Sandy

I wish I lived near to help you...you know,to help with drinking the hot cocoa by the fire! hehe I've put together my stocking swap and it's ready to be mailed out on Monday...I always have so much fun with these things but then I worry that the person won't like what I'm sending! lol Hope you're able to relax this evening, sis! xoxo

God Bless,

I haven't been contacted and I try to look for a link for my partner and I couldn't. I contacted you a couple of times, maybe you didn't receive my emails?
If something is wrong, that's fine, next year, thank you!
