Freezing here today!! 2" of ice the last three nights, and snow yesterday, but just enough to dust the ground. No school for the kids yesterday.

Here's a picture of the road to our house in the spring- this was a particularly beautiful spring with just loads of wildflowers.

Here's a fun questionaire I found on the illustrious Quilldancer's site. She graciously sent it to me to use.

I like it because it is different from all those other "get to know you" lists. This one actually is fun!

Are you sure you live in California ? I thought it would be only hot there lol ! That's usually what people think. Thanks for your comment on my catastrophes ! But poor Lisa (16) doesn't suffer from jalousie, but has hormonal problems. And I were to lazy to go to the vet to get her pills. You see, laziness can be very expensive ! and a pipi too

Hi Rachelle, it's me again ! I just discovered your comment on Cats on Tuesday (I am a little upside down with my computer getting back all what I need) Of course you don't need a Mr. Linky for joining ! I think I have to make this clear. It was only a suggestion, in fact it helps me to see who wrote something. Anyway you can do whatever you want, the only obligation is to put the little cat picture over your text, so that people see that you participate. If you put it also in your sidebar it's nice, but not an obligation.
