Ahh... the weekend has arrived.  It doesn’t feel much like a weekend since the kids have been home due to the cancellation of school on Thursday & Friday.  I love having them home, but it’s time for them to go back. 

The better part of the whole country is feeling the effects of the cold weather.  It was snowing again when I looked outside this morning.  We still only have a couple of inches though.  I’d say we are probably lucky to not have a couple of feet.  We have had to supplement our heat pump with a kerosene heater.  Once the temperatures dip below around 30 degrees, our heat pump doesn’t work anymore.

Last night one of the cats discovered this new source of warmth.  I kept seeing her inch closer and closer until finally she had sidled right up to it.  Being a cat, she was ever curious.  She placed her little paws on the grate that surrounds the heater itself and got her face as close to the window as she could.  I got up from the couch as quietly as I could and ran to get the camera.  By the time I got back, she had gotten down, but I was patient. 

About 10 minutes later, she was brave again.
