Find the Kitty: Too Smart For Her Own Good

My cat is smart. Too smart. Well, maybe ALL cats are this smart, but my previous cats must have all been lugnuts because Lizzy is, in my estimation, brilliant. I’ve told you before how she figured out how to open our 1800’s-style latched French door (and made a video to prove it). I decided to […]

How’s Your Winter Going?

Just when I thought perhaps spring was set for an early arrival, arctic air from the north extends its chilly fingers over the land. That dumb groundhog doesn’t know what he’s talking about (lol). It has been in the single digits and by 10am — with the sun shining gloriously away — it was a […]
