update on the cats...

Jack and Tigger have decided either of us available makes a good place to settle.  They even will sleep together on on lap which was unheard of before.
At night Jack sleeps under our bed and Tigger sleeps at our feet with occasional trips up to my head to tickle me with his whiskers and cold nose.
Now if only they would awaken at 7am instead of 6...!!  LOL

Grief Counselor's homework

Robb's employer arranged for us to see a grief counselor.  After our first visit she assigned a homework project..... Bob and I heard the assignment very differently but that's neither here nor there. I heard that I was to paint a ceramic plant pot with something that reminded me of our son. Then smash it and glue it back together.... the repaired pot is no longer perfect but it is whole. That is to reflect the hole in our life without our son and that we can put our life back together. lots of cracks but "whole" in a sense.

Robb always wanted to have a beach house ... or lake house on the that's what I chose.

My helper

Here's Tigger being my helper as I pin bear pieces together... LOL  His new favorite place while I am sitting in the recliner with my feet up....  Bob calls him our own "orange terror".

Jack and Tigger

Robb's two cats have moved into our house. They miss him almost as much as we do BUT they are settling in.
My two daughters were over last night so today is a little bit of a set back....

Tigger, the orange striped one, has adopted me.  Jack, the gray striped one, has adopted Bob.

Surprise surprise surprise..... looked out the window and it was snowing and blowing!!  We have about an inch far! I guess we won't be going to our son's for dinner ( he lives about 45 minutes by car). Who knows what it will be like this evening.

So he's turning on his coffee machine and the X-Box .... we will do the same!!  And the gas fire!!

Yesterday's snow....we ended up with only an inch or so but by evening the temperature dropped to almost 0 F !
