Last day of 2017!

The radio and TV news shows are driving me nuts. I really do not want to look back internationally. Just forward. You know what I mean, I am sure. There was enough chaos at our house. A lot of it involved water. We have very hard water around here. It wreaks havoc on all systems, despite a water softener.
In the past few months:
Then there were the felines...
  • Dec. 9 – We have a new kitten! (He had a cold and an eye infection.)
  • Dec. 19 – My poor Daisy burned her mouth, then got an eye infection.
  • She's looking better.
    The antibiotics take time to work.
    Discharge was more green than yellow yesterday.
I'm ready to move on! Carole wrote on Twitter:
It's okay if the most significant thing you did this year was get through it.

I was checking out the kitty litter situation, and Annabelle came down to use it. Then, Hooper decided he'd sneak up on her! 

There was a stand-off on the stairs. Annie won't come up past Daisy, but Hooper did.

This morning they were playing. That's a good sign.

We have lots of snow on the ground, about 33 cm, which is good at these temperatures. It blankets the land.
Our doe is a big one. Her haunch is about 3' off of the ground, higher than the bird bath.

Hooper had to supervise the boot situation.
Hubby took me out to dinner. 

The lights are still up!

History tends to repeat itself, so I would say, it's not a complete waste of time to look backwards.

As for forwards, well, the media is full of predictions too not only of summaries, and it doesn't look good at all: climate out of control, nuclear power out of control, nutrition habits out of control (most people in the world - overweight); still no cure to health issues, only "breakthroughs"; baby face, unexperienced, young world "leaders" (see Austria, France, Canada, Greece) with no much leadership to expect from them etc...etc...etc...

Let's hope that at least on a personal level things will look better.

Happy New Year!

2018 must be better and brighter for you all, hoping all kitties are well, you and JB have lots of fun days out and about, the snow is just what you want, and all wild life comes and goes as it should. And no water woes!!!
Down here, we are already into the New Year, dawn is showing a little bright sky to the East, all is quiet, all are well and happy. XXX
