Our Fridays start out with getting the girls off to school and then my son and I come home to spend some time together and play with the kitten. Afterwards, I straighten up the apartment, clean the litter box (only thing I hate about having a cat) and start lunch. Every Friday, Vilay comes home for lunch so I have to have it ready by noon.
Around 8 a.m. I lay out all the winter gear in separate piles, one for each child. The girls put on their pile with or without my help depending on how they feel that day. I always help my son since he is still little.
Last year, it took us a good twenty minutes to do this. We are faster this year at just around ten minutes.
My son wears leggings like many of the boys here in the Jura. Leggings are worn under snow pants and boys pretty much just stay in them at home. It is easy.
Our Emmie Cat is getting more settled in and doesn’t hide as much. Actually, she only hides from my son who is a little overbearing!
I hope this will pass as he becomes more used to a cat being in the house. I have made a couple places for her to hide and she does use them! Since last Sunday, she has become a part of our family and I can’t imagine not having her.
Here is my son playing with Emmie. She mostly sat there watching him with a look on her face that only a cat can make. You know the one. It is when the cat pretends that it is not interested in anything you are doing.
But, as you can see in this photo the temptation to play was too much for her! She stopped pretending to not be interested due to her natural urge to attack any moving object. Don’t worry she regained her composure in no time at all and sat again watching in disinterest.
It has been in between rain and snow today. I have learned to carry an umbrella to protect myself from the snow especially when it is big wet flakes.
I really, really, really miss trick or treating with the kids. Halloween was always my favorite holiday.
I have been devouring all the Halloween photos on other blogs. It makes me feel like I am in a way watching all the great costumes come up to the door to beg for candy. I always enjoyed handing out the candy as much as going door to door with my kids.
Have a great Halloween weekend full of treats!!!
