Woke up to 5 below zero this morning. Poor Yuma started limping when his feet got too cold. We had an ice storm the other day and with this cold, it is still all over everything, making it dangerously slick for walking.
Looks like Yuma and I will be on our own this winter. Dolly and Fergie are staying home to care for our two oldest cats. They are getting on in years. Shadow is 15 and Calisto is 20. Shadow has arthritis real bad in her hind legs, but Calisto just keeps on going. I think that cat will outlive us all.
Maybe I can talk Dolly and Fergie into flying to Phoenix to join us in February or March, but we will see.
My plans are to celebrate Christmas with the family this Sunday and begin my travels on Tuesday, December, 27th. Last year we were delayed on our departure due to bad weather, but so far it looks like the weather will be okay all of next week.
I am glad to hear there is a Bloggerfest scheduled for next month. I look forward to attending. I understand Lorne and Susan Green of A Place Called “Away” will be hosting the event. They are currently heading across the southern end of Texas on their journey west.
It is supposed to warm up starting on Wednesday. I have a lot to do before leaving, so it will be a busy week. As usual, I am nervous and at the same time excited as I look forward to another winter in the southwest. I wish I could just stay home for the winter but, somehow I am drawn like a moth to a flame.
See you later.
