I had a fun visit to Big Moon Lake yesterday and there even were birthday cupcakes for me. Charli sang the birthday song to me and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
I'm headed to Luck for the night. It is great niece Milena's birthday today too, so a party at her house this afternoon and then will spend the night at the cabin with Kris, Lora and Anders. We had rain and fog yesterday so everything is a little slippery this morning, hopefully by afternoon I won't slip and slide too much on my drive to Luck.

Now the drama....when I got to the house and drug in my first load of overnight bags and stuff, I opened the door, no kitties greeted me. But I immediately saw that my bedroom door was closed....not good.
The litter box is in the laundry room and the food and water for the cats is in my bathroom at the other end of the house. I had visions of a poopful bedroom or cats who had not eaten or had any water for 3 days.
But, the bathroom door was also shut...and inside the bathroom were two very crazy kitties. They must have been roughhousing and somehow swung both those doors shut. So, the only damage that I can see is one sham off my bed was on the floor and it had been peed on. But it was dry, which tells me that they had been in bathroom lock down most of the time I was gone. The bathroom rugs were rolled around and there was one poop on the floor but all the rest of the poop, and I am assuming the pee, was in my shower stall. Smart kitties, huh!
So, it was easy to clean up and now I am washing what I can see needs washed and will keep that pillow & sham in the garage until I can have someone sniff test it for me. Poor things.
Oh, and their big bowl of water had been dumped too, but the auto waterer still had water in it.
All in all, the kitties did not have a good vacation!
So, I'll have to block doors with chairs from now on, I would never have guessed that they would have messed around and shut those doors, they have never done it when I was here. Owell, it all ended fine!!

I'll have gas for the snow blower before the next snow comes though.

Yesterday the cardinals were back, and today a nuthatch camped on the bird feeder for quite some time. The gold finches are plentiful and are at the feeders daily.

Thanksgiving is to be at the cabin. About 22 or more will be there, all J's. That will be something!

In the mix of all this great fun, I came down with a wicked cold so spent Sunday evening and most of Monday on the couch / sickbed.
Hopefully more interesting postings will follow.

I'm getting into this bird watching deal, I had a downy woodpecker at the feeder this morning and lots of chickadees on and off all day. Barley is kind of into it too!

Just a little later, I looked out the kitchen window and saw both male and female cardinals checking out my yard. I hope they will move in for the winter so I can get some better photos.

So far, they have been quite mellow. Not sure if that is because they had shots right before we left the shelter, or if they are just as happy to snuggle in the cat carrier which is in the laundry room. Tonight they are starting to explore the house a little more.
Hops on the left and Barley on the right in both of these photos.

I have to admit, this is not the first time, in fact...when the new baby comes in May of 2009...I will be Great Aunt for the 20th time.
Kaija and Mike are expecting a baby in May. They have Charli and Milli who will be big sisters to the new babe.

The following are not my photos, but I am hopeful to take a few as the birds get used to me.
