This, that, and some other things

(The damage. September 2007)

It’s good to be home, but my home is a mess. Disorganized, dirty, and looking a lot like a dump.

I was behind in the housework before we left for our recent trip back east. I’d been concentrating on preserving the harvest for the winter months. It’s time to start concentrating on the Fall Clean Sweep and getting the house ready for the winter months.

M the Elder seems to think we’ll have snow in about four weeks time. It’s not unheard of in these parts. I’m not sure it will snow quite that soon, but I would like to have most of the fall cleaning done while I can still open the windows and air the place out.

The kittens don’t seem to have missed me very much. M the Younger kept them company. They appear to be happy and content. One of the things on my long list of things to do before winter hits is take the kitties to the vet. They need shots and spayed. I’d hoped to have their shots taken care of before this, but M the Younger’s auto accident makes it difficult to get around since the three of us are now trying to share one car.

I hope he finds a suitable and affordable car soon.

I’ve been sorting through the photos when I take a break from cleaning. I should start posting a few from our trip soon. In the meantime, Izzy and Bella want to say a hello.

(Don’t continue on if you’re sick of kitty photos.)

We’re home!

We’re home.

It’s good to be back.

More to follow when I’m caught up with all the things I need to do around here, and I’ve sorted through the millions of photos I took on our trip.

I also want to get caught up on all my blog mates.  If I haven’t dropped in to say hello yet, don’t worry.  I’ll be there soon.
