Why does Mouse's paw give her trouble? How do you put Palmer in time-out? I would love to see that. How does she know it's time for her to get out of time-out?

What a time the past few days have been. Late Saturday the power went out and it did not get restored until late Monday afternoon. By then the temperature was down to 37 in the house. I was so worried about Mouse ~ she hates the cold as she feels the pain in her paw so much more. I kept covering her up with polar fleece blankets. We had candles lit, but they did not throw much heat. When the power was finally restored, the furnace did not go off for hours. Mouse loved it ~ she lays right in front of the register and sleeps. Early Tuesday morning, I woke up feeling cold again ~ yep, the furnace had gone out. Made an emergency call to the shop that installed it and about a half hour later, a repairman showed up. Turns out he is our neighbor who lives a quarter mile down the road. I was so fed up with all the trouble that furnace has been giving us I was ready to buy a new one ~ not that I can really afford one now, but it seemed like it was essential. My neighbor said that the furnace we have is an excellent one, the shop carries all the parts to fix it and so there is no need to replace it. Turns out it was only an igniter that needed to be replaced and the charge is going to be under 100, 65 of which is the service call. As I type this, the temperature is a balmy 64 in here, Mouse is still sleeping in front of the register and Palmer is in a time-out. Yes, things are finally back to normal. All the outdoor fur kids are fine ~ the cats were playing when the sun was out, but have since gone to bed. Shaggy is still out ~ he loves the cold.

I was supposed to be out in BC today, buying pet food and looking for stock, but that town gets way too cold as it is so near the lake. I am going to brave it tomorrow ~ it is supposed to be a few degrees warmer and if I move real quick, I should get a lot done and stay warm.

Work beckons. I hope everyone is havina a MERRY day and is staying warm!
