Early, Early Morning

I woke up at 4:30 a.m. It is another cold morning and the cats are heavy on my ankles. They are cold and cuddle as close to me as they can get and their weight pulls down on the blankets making it hard for me to move my legs or change positions and then I start to hurt. When we just had 2 cats, they were bigger than 3 of the cats we have now, they would do this and I would wake up crying from the pain and my husband would lift and move them to relieve the pain (my ankles have severe arthritis and getting worse, but I am still walking and moving and I will keep trying). But after I got out of bed, I put my dog outside. She is a really good dog and she is fun to watch. She goes out and she starts the morning ritual, she pees, then starts to sniff through the yard. As she sniffs, she has to poo and she poos and sniffs and so there is poo everywhere! Then when she finishes pooing, she starts hopping through the yard, sniffing and and hopping. She is a big time friendly dog and when people come over, she is all over them, as if they came to see her, not to visit with us. She also loves to walk, but she licks, so we aren't walking because we don't want her getting salt on her paws. She would be such a sick puppy after that. I am waiting for warm weather and a good rain that will wash away the salt. After that, we will get back to walking her through the woods. She loves that! She will pull this way and that trying to sniff everything! She is very much a hunting dog! She is a sweet, loving dog, that will love anyone. But she does love her kids. That is a good thing. Best dogs in the world are those that are rescued.

As long as I am awake, I will get some work accomplished on the emails again. I took a few days off to get my craft room rearranged. One of my cats jumped to the top of my tallest bookshelf (he used other things in the room to get up that high) and he knocked my china dolls off the top of the bookshelf. One was very old and it shattered. After a good cry, I began the process of cleaning up all the broken glass. I can't be mad at him. I put the dolls up that high. I did it when the girls were young, so that they wouldn't touch and break the dolls. He is just a cat and he doesn't know any better. He just wanted to get up high because the other cats were bothering him and he knocked the dolls off. It is sad, but they are just things and things can be replaced, people cannot.
