I know her tooth abscessed and she was kind of annoyed about it. Hmmm...maybe if I ask for more cuddle time that will help.
No, Lucy, I don't think cuddle time alone will help. She needs to know she is still needed. What if I meow extra long for her to turn on the bathroom water tap for me. Then she will know she is needed! Yeah, I think that is a great idea. Plus, I get to sing for her. That's got to be a special treat for her.
Silly Oscar and Lucy. I think if I show her that I am clever and brave. I know. I will jump onto the top shelf of the closet. She thinks I can't get there. Ha! I'll show her. Won't she be happy to know I'm so clever and brave. Yes, that's the ticket. That will help her out.

It has been a very blustery winter so far. As I walked home from work on Friday, the wind was so strong it kept blowing off my jacket hood. The hood has snaps on it and a scarf to help keep it down but it was all to no avail. This is the sort of weather that makes me want to cook -- so out comes the crock pot and veggies.
The recipe assured me the soup would be more flavorful if I sauteed the vegetables first. All right then, in they all go into the pan along with some minced garlic. Yum. I love how my apartment smells when something is quietly bubbling in the crock pot.
Here is the finished product--crock pot veggie soup. It is quite yummy and perfect for these cold, blustery winter days.
I couldn't resist picking a few roses up from the farmer's market whilst I purchased the veggies. Did I need them? No, but oh, it's so lovely to see the soft colors and breathe in their quiet scent......
The kitty brats have been keeping busy as well. Winston likes to "help" with the laundry. His efforts are always appreciated. *ahem*
Lucy enjoys escaping into the hallway. Here she poses in a relaxed, yet regal, feline supine pose. Then I had to scoop her up before the big, chocolate lab down the hall decided to come gallumping out!

It's not a long walk to the grocery store-say 15-20 minutes-but the sidewalks can be a challenge and the wind was strong. Mum said she saw a tiny snownado! She didn't get a picture of that, though.
I kept her favorite "afghan" throw warm and cozy. She wanted to cuddle down when she got home.
She put on her favorite DVD.....

|Tired Lucy and Winston|
Hi peoples, Lucy here today to tell you about Mom's Saturday!
After a week of record breaking cold and blizzard warnings, Saturday was very mild with lots of fog!
Tuesday, January 7, 2014
Our Mum is going to work today and we felines are concerned. There are blizzard warnings/snow squall warnings and temperatures of -40. Brrr..... It will be a chilly walk.
Winston tried to help keep her warm by sleeping on her toes. She loves that. Meanwhile, she left us plenty of food and water. We are gonna send her warm thoughts and purrs...... Cuddle your felines, peoples. Stay warm!

If you want something done right, leave it to the felines. Oscar couldn't leave his snooperivising to pose for this intimidating photo shoot!
Stay warm, peoples. We hear yet another storm is heading our way.

|Oscar takes charge|
It's my turn now, Lucy. It's been very cold here the past couple of days. This has led to a few interesting situations of which I do NOT approve. However, I try to make Mom's life easy and give her cuddles and purrs to help her out.
In the meantime, stay warm and listen to your felines. Have a good weekend, frail, feeble peoples and fellow felines.
