Happy New Year

Posted by Anne Marie Serrano on January 7, 2010

I have been a bit lazy about updating my blog – I know I’ve said this before. But no news is probably good news or at least boring news.

Fergus has sent out inquiries to several hospitals  in Australia (a few at a time  in case he gets a positive response.  Many of them are saying they don’t have openings at this time which seems very strange since there was such a hue and cry for needing ER physicians. We haven’t given up.

This has been a very cold and snowing holiday season. Usually the snow doesn’t stay long on the ground here but this year it is staying an accumulating. The Cooper and Bean Sidhe like playing around in the snow but not for too long since it is very cold too.

Freddie is doing well. I have constructed a warm cubby hole on the shelves in the garage. I try to visit him a couple of times a day and he curls up on my lap. He loves it when I hum songs to him (he doesn’t care much for my singing but the humming soothes him). I hum my repertoire of songs and he sleeps like a baby. When there is fresh snow on the ground I can follow his little paw prints to see where he has explored. It is so funny- out the kitty door, up the front walkway, peek into the front window, run away when Cooper barks, across the lawn and up a tree, down the other side of the tree, across into the field – and then I get too cold and go back into the house. One day I am going to dress for the exploration and follow his path full circle. He always comes back to the warmth of the garage.

I am getting a bit of cabin fever so I think I will take a class at the quilt shop. We also looked into getting a membership at the brand new YMCA. It is very nice and they have all sorts of classes – maybe a dance class would be fun.

I wish you all a Happy New Year. Cross your fingers that we know something soon about Australia soon or else I will have to start unpacking – again!!!
