In With The New

It was a typical weekend around here.  So many plans, so little time.  Mom was in the hospital overnight on Friday so I brought her to her house on Saturday.  She is feeling much better.  While I was there I fixed her water timer (I think).  I set it up last weekend but, evidently, I wasn't supposed to synchronize the start times for the front and back yard.  It should be all fixed now.  One goes on and then the other goes on, at least that's the plan.  When I came home I chilled out with the dogs, pulled weeds, ate dinner and watched Gilmore Girls, my latest series.  7 seasons should keep me occupied for a while.  I probably should have been painting my bathroom or something but I am saving that for another day.

Today I returned my foster cat and kittens back to the shelter to get spayed and hopefully adopted.  On the way out I grabbed a Min-Pin with 3 newborn pups.  

Oh, so small, so cute, so LOUD!  When she met my dogs she went ballistic, barking, howling, growling, yikes.  I moved her in to the far bathroom so that she can have some privacy.  I hope that she will get used to the noises of the house and relax a little.  Usually my mama dogs want to be with my other dogs but not this one.  I hope she is a good mama and her babies don't get sick. 

Once I got the new dog settled in I did the usual laundry, sweeping, cooking for the week, and started cleaning the cat bathroom.  I'll have to finish mopping tomorrow.  

The bathroom seems so empty without kittens.  Their kitty castles have turned back in to plain old cardboard boxes.  I miss them but they wouldn't stay kittens forever and I certainly can't have a bathroom full of permanent cat residents.  One day I will have an indoor/outdoor cattery.  It's on my to-do list.

Daizy, after reading this piece and seeing the pictures, I am reminded of that great line from "Ghostbusters" where Bill Murray says to the mayor about what would happen in a doomsday scenario, "Dogs and cats, living together!" LOL

Hey Dave, that's one of my favorite lines from Ghostbusters!
