Well .. it is finally raining instead of snowing here .. good thing I did get most of the leaves up and off the garden beds .. now all that great wet stuff will penetrate the soil and soak the children in the garden. Speaking of "kids" .. yes .. again with the cute pictures .. soon it will be garden/plant ones strictly so my last indulgence (or almost last ?) .. Emma is completely at home with us and it isn't even two weeks yet .. Sophie is a changed kitty .. from spoiled "only kid" to older sister who puts up with Emma's shenanigans .. I would never have believed it would go so well .. it is like Emma has finally brought out the Main Coon in Sophie .. no more the twitchy Siamese dominatrix .. now its "Ok, sit on my head if you must .. but stop biting my ears PLEASE?" ... will wonders never cease ?
