Mooch has the Right Idea...

It's been snowing today. We've just received about a foot of new snow, but are thankful it isn't the four feet we got at Christmastime. I don't think I could take another round like that.
Things have been busy, but somewhat odd around Oleo Acres. Having my Hired-Hand-With-Benefits home is hard to adjust to. He is healing incredibly well but is now getting to the point where he's getting bored yet he's still recovering from surgery so he can't do everything he wants to do. I am stuck somewhere in the middle of enjoying having him home, or beaning him with a frying pan. Take your pick. He hasn't learned that just because he can't do things he wants to do is no reason to interrupt my schedule. ;-)
One thing I have enjoyed is not having to get up at the crack of Dawn. We've actually slept until 7:30 or 8 in the morning! Incredible! the sheep have gracefully adjusted their demands as well. In fact, I have found them all to be sleeping when I head out to feed. What a Lazy Bunch we've become. I love it!

As you can see below, Mooch has adjusted quite nicely to the tempo around here. He and his brother, Rascal (seen below brooding behind the loveseat that he can't have the chair Mooch is in), are now 9 months old and huge! I will try to get some photos of Rascal and his puffy-tail. And Daisy May (aka Mama) is doing fine as well. Her biggest issue is that she wants to sleep on my head at night and I want her to sleep elsewhere. We have had to resort to barriers to our bedroom that allow them to look in, cry and be pitiful while we try to remain in control of our bed and keep cat dander to a minimum.

Frustrated Rascal

Hopefully I can return to blogging more often. The HHWB has been working on his computers. I have, wisely, stayed out of the office and his way even though that means less chance of doing emails, blogging or reading friends' blogs as well.

But then there's nothing wrong with a blanket, a comfortable chair, a good book, and a roaring fire in the woodstove. Right, Mooch? Mooch?...Mooch! Darn that cat!

I LOVE that photo of Mooch! Glad you are able to enjoy some "upsides" of having the DH home and under foot. You and Lois hug each other for me....

Kathy,
It's good to see you out and about in the blogger sphere. :-) I think ALL of you deserve a good book, comfy chair and a roaring fire. Take care of yourself and I'm glad things are improving. Loved the pictures of the kitty boys. My how they've grown.

Neelix used to sleep on his back like that - shows that he feels safe and is well adjusted :-) Enjoy your day. T.

I'm jealous. I wish Charlie were a laid back cat like Mooch. He's always looking for someone to boss. You just don't know what a kitten will grow up to be. I want a Mooch of my own~

That picture of Mooch is great!! I wish I could sleep as comfortably as that! I'm more like Rascal....:)

Ah yes, the joys of having husbands at home. Maybe you need to teach him to card wool or something. :)

Love those kitty photos! Rascal is so big and so handsome. Mooch sounds like the perfect brother for him.
