Mt Wilson has been declared safe.

Also, we have discovered that XM Classic Rewind puts the kitten to sleep. Now if we could just sleep through that we'd be all set...

Zoot is home from the kitty hospital! Huzzah!

She's confined to the big cage, with the "no jumping" rule in force, and she is currently sulking; but home nonetheless.

Yesterday I got up far too early to go to dragon boat practice, the first of the season. Yay, we succeeded in having a practice. We had enough people to move a small boat, and we even ran into our ex-coach and sweet-talked her into coming out and coaching us. (Which was good, because we didn't actually have a plan for what we were going to do once we got on the boat.) Our fearless captain remembered the big folder o waivers, and is certified to steer, without which it would have been a really short practice. So yay, I didn't even have to kill anybody.

I'm still worried and think we should be doing more recruiting. If we're having this much trouble rounding up 10 people to have practice, it's going to be an utter joy trying to round up 20 so we can have a race. :P

Meanwhile, my darling husband had been trying in vain to start the crappy old lawn mower that came with the house. So once I got home & had lunch, we went shopping. We came home from Lowes with a lawn mower, a new leaf blower/sucker, and a weed whacker. Much yard work ensued (as well as laundry and dishwashing).

We tried valiantly to stay awake through the Malaysian Grand Prix. I think [livejournal.com profile] stuartc even succeeded. I definitely dozed off a few times. Apparently no one ran into Kubica's car this time, and he came in second after Raikonnen. Huzzah!

Today we slept in. More yard work and washing of things happened today. [livejournal.com profile] stuartc cleaned up the garage a bit, and we took down the Christmas lights.

Zoot (a.k.a. Tiny Kitten) has been in some sort of snit the past couple of days. She's currently attacking the inside of the couch directly underneath me. We dragged her out from under the bed this morning to verify that she's still breathing, not injured, and seems physically okay; but she's been skulking among several hidey-holes all weekend and not eating or drinking much. Crazy cat. Hopefully she'll get over it. Meanwhile Princess has been enjoying the relative peace and quiet.

We got up early this morning and spent FAR too much money at Lowes for kind of a lot of power tools. Still no magazine rack.

I also got all of [livejournal.com profile] stuartc's presents wrapped and put under the tree. Curse you, odd-shaped presents! Next year I swear anything non-Euclidean is getting put in a box and THEN wrapped.

Am currently trapped under a warm kitten. Luckily there is tea nearby.

Already vastly enjoying the 11-day weekend. Today we took Zoot (a.k.a. Tiny Kitten) to the vet for her second round of shots, and did a bunch of shopping. Not only did we voluntarily go into Target on the Saturday before Christmas, it was *my idea*.

We've re-collared all three cats, and have made plans for further shopping and a woodworking frenzy. I am feeling very relaxed and have even been overheard humming various seasonal tunes.

We have a new kitten! Findo is dubous; Princess has been in a snit all day, but is at least no longer hiding in the bookcase in the cat room.

Kitten is tiny, about 7 or 8 weeks old, black & white; female, not fixed yet but will be when she's big enough. We don't know what her name is yet. Pictures will be forthcoming.
