Strike of the Gnomes!

I seriously thought we had reached some sort of truce, especially since all my house plants had froze when the thermal coupler went out and they now had something to do....


I battled frozen pipes to my kitchen sink all day yesterday and as they thawed found out the drain also was frozen. What is so weird though is that it's been WARMER out and not near as cold as it has been!!! AND I always keep the cold on a drip....AND those pipes are tucked up under the house near the heat while the bathroom pipes are along an exposed wall and THOSE didn't freeze. Huh? The gnomes strike again....they were just waiting for me to become more complacent I guess. Also the damper on my wood stove broke and it's brand new. So guess what I'm doing tonight? My God I need a man...

Since my life is going to Hell in a handbasket...why not? Right?

So after hissing and running away from Bunni for a week, then following her around hissing at her, Izzy has decided Bunni is her long lost baby and has totally adopted her. It's hilarious. She tries to carry her around, follows after her 'talking' and giving good motherly advice....at first Bunni was like, 'what the hell?' - but now they sleep together and Bunni subjects herself to long baths from 'mom'. Izzy did that with Wrigley also when he was younger, but he's gotten a bit rambunctious for her lately so I guess she needed a new baby.

So sweet with the kitties. Our kitten has given in and finally become fond of Ava and her mothering (over-mothering). She used to run away from Ava for 'free time' but now she has to be right under her feet all the time:)
