No snow here...

But it is snowing at my brother's house and I'm watching on his webcams. With envy.

Also I'm watching Biggie try to get around the blockade I created yesterday. Twice I found him on the other side of the netting on the ledge. I figured out his access and tied it down in what I hoped was a way to thwart his efforts. Looks like I succeeded. I spent a long time thinking I'll just close the door and bring the cat tree back inside. But, except when it dips below freezing which is pretty much never any more, I always open up the door at night for sleeping. So he just needs to learn the rules.

I spent a lot of time yesterday playing on susandennis.com. I have not had easy access for almost a year so I only did bare bones stuff before. Yesterday I built tools and web pages galore. Mostly reference things I want when I'm out and only have my phone. Or in an emergency when I need fast info via an easy URL.

And speaking of fast and easy, I have to say, I'm pretty damn impressed with this Amazon Fire tablet. I got their top of the line (refurbished) and it's a really good deal. It's very pretty and very zippy and does everything I want it to do. I've had their Fire tablets in the past - and they sucked so badly it was painful but not this one. Especially for the price $115. They do have this annoying 'offers' thing which comes on every time you turn it on. You can pay $15 to get rid of it. BUT I learned a long time ago that if you call or chat nicely to their customer service and ask them to take it off for free they will grant you a "one time exemption" and skip the $15 fee. So I did that.

I found a new binge last night. On Acorn. It's a nice little cop show from Canada (Montreal) - 9-12. Lots of episodes.

So, I'll be watching crimes in Montreal today and crocheting and keeping an eye on Biggie. Full day ahead...

Also Snow Watchin!

The latest Biggie

So. I was setting up a stand for the new tablet and needed a screwdriver so I opened up the big cabinet doors where the screwdriver and a ton 'o other important shit lives.

Of course, Mr. I Own The World had to get in there. When I turned around, he had found treasure.

When he come home from surgery, I put Stickie on a shelf way in the back behind the cupboard doors.

I'd forgotten about it but it took Biggie 2 seconds to find and liberate it.

I wore him out playing with it and now he's gone to take a nap.

Random Stuff

Doris Kerns Goodwin was on CBS This Morning in the best blouse and tie I have ever seen! I appreciate and admire whatever she has to saw whenever she says it but I could not pay attention today staring at this!

Even with no place to wear it, I want it.

Biggie introduced his favorite toys to each other.

The snow was supposed to stop at my brother's a couple of hours ago. Still going Texas strong.



And, finally, I had quiche for lunch and used up my last frozen shell so I made more. My silicone shells fit perfectly on rolled out store bought dough.

They are not perfect pretty but they will taste great.

Time for some TV watching.
