Severe Weather, Kittehs and Classes…

So, last night we had severe storms in the area. Here in Enterprise, we had a lot of strong winds, trees fallings and debris everywhere.

In the nearby city of Dothan, they had much more going on. Part of the ceiling at a WalMart fell in, lots of people without power, trees falling on peoples homes. They were a lot harder hit than we were, and there is only 20 miles between us.

 

I made sure my friends down that way were okay. Thankfully everyone was.

 

The cats are doing great. I am a little worried about BaxterMarie. She isnt growing. She seems like she’s going to be a ‘forever kitten’. Perhaps she is just a little tiny breed. Jeffrey Jones on the other hand is getting fatter by the day. YAY. And he is a proper little Sir. As I have told my friends, he just needs a monocle and top hat. He is a bit on the skittish side. BaxterMarie is as fearless as ever. Oh, and she still likes to pee in my bathroom sink for some reason.

 

So, remember back when I decided to start taking some school courses? Remember how I said I would probably regret it? Cry? Throw tantrums? Well, I am. WTF was I thinking?!

 

However, as much as it all makes me want to cry, I am thoroughly enjoying it. I have a huge class load, but I can take it at my own pace pretty much, since I dont work or anything. And these classes, so spectacular. They are definitely holding my interest.

 

I should check in more often, I know, I know. I will try to make it a point.

 

I have reconnected with some family members that I havent talked to in years as well. You see, my mom was always sort of the ‘black sheep’. She married a military man and we traveled and lived all over the place, while her sisters stayed right in the area they were born. So, we all had some distance there. And my aunts werent very nice when my mom was younger either. I remember that growing up. But things are different now. I am calling one aunt on  a semi-regular basis, and doing hand written letters with the other. It is actually quite nice.

 

Well, the bad weather has died down. We’ve had our typical weird winter weather here in the South. Temps in the 70s, tornados, then the temps dropping into the 40s. You know, once every ten years or so it snows here in April. Totally freaks us out. We arent prepared for snow. We dont know what to do other than shut down the state…lol. No, seriously. The upper portions of the state knows what to do. But not down here in the very southern most part. We all flail about and marvel at the white stuff falling from the sky. We also close our part of the state, because heaven forbid we try to drive in the stuff. You wont catch me trying to drive, no sir.

 

And, lastly, I am still addicted to the Netflix Vortex of Doom. I’ve also fallen in love with Putlocker.

 

Tonights movie: Macbeth. Michael Fassbender….YUM and DROOL!!

 

So, until next time my lovies…

Trespassing!

So, the following events happened the other day…I believe it was Tuesday or Wednesday, before BaxterMarie had her surgery…I’ll get to that later.

 

Some deer were in the back acreage, and well, Jeffrey Jones and BaxterMarie were both enthralled and highly offended by this trespassing business on their property.

 

BaxterMarie was all puffed up and Jeffrey was growling. Its funny, if you look close at the pictures, you can see the deer moving, and yet the cats hardly move at all.

 

2016-01-07 06.36.302016-01-07 06.36.352016-01-07 06.36.372016-01-07 06.36.402016-01-07 06.36.422016-01-07 06.36.452016-01-07 06.36.472016-01-07 06.36.48

 

Funny, huh?

 

Now, at some point after I put the phone down, the deer started playing a little, just kicking their back legs up and stuff. Thats when Jeffrey said ‘NOPE’ and ran away like the big chicken he is.

 

BaxterMarie stayed to stare some more, and depoofed herself.

 

I thought the entire things was funny on epic levels. I didnt think Jeffrey Jones would want to sit on the little window bed I had made for them ever again. But, he has rediscovered his ball (nuetered as they are) and gotten back up in the window.

 

So, later I will bring you the tale of BaxterMarie and her unexpected surgery. Right now, at this minute, she is chewing on my arm, very slobbery and unladylike. So, a tale for when she is napping and not in my face.

LAND SHARK!!!

So, I spoil my cats. Yes, I know, crazy cat lady thing. And even though technically Jeffrey is my daughters cats, he spends more time with me and I look at him as mine as well.

 

So, I indulged the new baby, BaxterMarie, and my grandbabykitty Jeffrey with new presents for each.

 

Behold…LAND SHARKS!!!

 

 

 

Now, at first, Jeffrey was content to just chill and sleep in his. BaxterMarie had other ideas, however. She kept pouncing on his and smooshing the side in. She was more interested in the fins and stuff.

 

But now, as you can see, she is sleeping snuggly warm in hers.

 

The two cats are getting closer day by day. It was a big break through when Jeffrey finally let BaxterMarie cuddle with him for a nap.

 

Today, for the first time, he groomed her. Oh, she didnt like it one bit, because Jeffrey seems to have a fascination with her little feets. He put her in a strangle hold and was like ‘look here, you lil snot, you must smell like me…I shall bathe you and you will like it!’. It was funny to watch.

 

They are currently over at my laptop desk in the chair fighting. I hear BaxterMarie give a little squeak every once in awhile and have to tell Jeffrey to be gentle. He backs off and minds me well. He’s a good boy.

 

And BaxterMarie is just a little darling. More often than not she is right here on my desk cuddled against me. And when not cuddling, she is playing with her multitude of toys. I had given the cats most of ChesterAnn’s (Fat Cat) toys. They each have their favorites.

 

On another note, its Thanksgiving here in the US and I dont care. I mean, not to be ugly or anything, but I’m just not a big holiday sort. I try to do something nice for Christmas only for the sake of my daughter,and this year, I am not bothering with the tree or anything. I got her a few gifts already, and that will be that.

 

Other news…I have a horrific cold. I know it was brought about by the weather. It was nice here, 80’s, then it dropped down into the 40’s, then it rained and got humid again, and now the temps are back up. The moisture in the air has probably been playing havoc with my lungs, and you all know I have COPD. Blah. So, I am extremely tired and trying to stay on top of things with cold meds and whatnot, while also not laying down much to keep the fluid from settling and building in my lungs. SO…TIRED.

 

NaNoWriMo is winding down. I have REALLY enjoyed being a Municipal Liaison. I will do it next year, and years to come, hopefully. My word counts have been good and steady and I’m still not finished with everything I want to write. I will admit I have been working my book like a movie is filmed…out of sequence. When I have a great idea for a particilar chapter, I work on it and perfect it, getting it down while its fresh in my head, then doing a completely different thing when it strikes me.

 

In the gaming world, things are as depressing as ever. No one to write with. And I tried to use one of my old characters to do a little train of thought type of thing on the situation of the ‘city’ and its inhabitants from her perspective. I was trolled majorly bad, or, well, my character was…it still doesnt make you feel worth a damn.

 

I got my new laptop in, thanks to my mommy. I unboxed it, but have yet to set it up and turn it on to get things how I want them. I am just too tired and have no drive.

 

I know the girls at the coffee shop will be glad to see me on a more regular basis once again. They are always asking why I dont come in to write anymore.

 

My old laptop isnt completely dead, its still good for some things. It lasted me a good while, and I put it through some abuse. Its just obsolete now. And even with a new battery, it wont hold a charge. It always has to be plugged in and that is a major inconvenience. Especially for using MSWord. It seems to drain my battery life incredibly fast.

 

But, that will be a thing of the past now, with the shiny new laptop. And I will take extra special care of it.

 

My next major purchase will be a new computer. Just the tower. I have a great monitor set-up, great keyboard and mouse, great webcam. And I can strip the blu-ray player from this tower to put in a new one. I am really good about making use of things.

 

I think, however, that this desktop is going to last me a good while longer. Everything on it works great. I just replaced the video card and put in a new hard drive, and added the max RAM, so its fast and smooth. Its just a little…ugly…lol. No, not really. It still looks sleek and all, you can just tell its an older model. I’ve had it over 6 years now.

 

Well, I’m just a chatty Cathy today, arent I? You’ve fallen asleep, havent you? If not, you are now lulled into a nice mood to take a nap. 😛

 

Happy Food Coma day to all you US folk.

Cuddle Clones

As you all know, when Fat Cat died I was beside myself. My grief still tears me up inside today. I miss her so. She was so dear to me, and, while I have gotten myself an unexpected kitten, I can not replace Fat Cat in my heart.

 

Someone had sent me a link to Cuddle Clones when ChesterAnn (Fat Cat) had passed. I thought the whole idea behind the site was lovely. You can see what they do here, http://www.cuddleclones.com/index.html .

 

It is pricey, I know. But each item is hand made. Custom ordered to your specifications and pictures you provide.

 

Today I recieved a ‘quality check’ email asking me to look over the progress and see how I like it and give my approval.

 

 

Is that not AMAZING!! Again, its pricey. But to me, it was worth it. And, well, pro-tip…you can go to RetailMeNot and find discount codes. I had found one for 20% off.

 

I think for anyone who has lost a dear pet, this is a wonderful way to preserve a little piece of it.

 

The Cuddle Clones site also does more than just cats. They do dogs and horses as well. They can replicate a favorite stuffed animal from you or your childs past. They can take drawings you’ve made and make them plushies.

 

But their primary goal has always been to offer those of us who have lost a pet some little bit of comfort. Not only do they do the plushes, they have figurines and have recently added wood burning plaques.

 

I cant wait to finally recieve my Cuddle Clone of ChesterAnn. I will post pics of her when I get her in!

 

~love and squishes my darlings~
