MIL is 95, still lives by herself (although there is family close by). I love to visit her as she is another cat lover and lives on 15 acres. As it happened, family members in BR all needed to be out of town this past week also... so DH went down to stay for a bit. Actually she does pretty well on her own, but this last year has been a little hard on her. They have talked about moving her into a nice assisted living place - and she has visited there - but she's not sure about it (and I can understand that).
Anyway, since I had the house to myself most of the week, I took the opportunity to clean out some areas that needed cleaning. I also took the 2 little kittens to the Adoption Center where they immediately vaccinated them and put them into the Adoption room. I had kept them clean and groomed, well fed, and friendly, so they shouldn't have any problem getting homes. And if I keep them too long I start to get attached.... it's not hard looking into those trusting little faces.
So I steam cleaned the bathroom floors, washed all the 'kitty blankets' that we have around the house, comet-ed and Clorox-ed all my counter tops, etc. It's amazing what you can do when you don't have to cook or run errands, or do things for other people. I even got in a nap one or two days... and met a friend for coffee!
Now I'm making Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies!
I mean, really, it can't be bad, ya think?
Oh, one more thing... Got a video (granted not a great one as it's through the French Doors) of the outside black and white kittens cavorting on the back patio. They are playing in a basket... can you see them?
Have a wonderful weekend!
