Baby It's Cold Outside

The past two weeks have been fairly chilly for this area and of course, I've had to go back outside to work. I've been working on two balconies overlooking this pretty lake though and every day these geese come by to swim and meander around. The edge of the water comes right up to the building so it's a very scenic work area. We are building a new HQ and warehouse for a large coffee and tea distributor, based here in Alabama, and they are nice enough to usually have some hot coffee for us on these cold mornings. It's kinda cool to build for this company because I (and my Mama) have always used their tea. I don't know if I should mention the name of the company but for the Jeopardy question of the day, "what is another name for a colorful gem?"

No news yet on where I will go next as far as work. This job is winding down fast so something will probably come around soon. I'm trying to maintain a 'que sera, sera' attitude but I don't know how well I'm doing at that. I just have a feeling though, that things are going to work out just fine.

Well, if you don't have a warm lap available to climb into, I guess you just have to go with the next best thing. Hhhmmm, maybe I need another one of these things....
I really don't spoil my cat that much but she really knows how to play on my sympathies by acting like she's about to freeze to death all the time. So, I cave in sometimes.

Your cat looks grateful ... in a cat sort of way.
So where's the pup sleeping?

Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving Annie!

Is it unsweetened tea this company makes?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey FC! I think she appreciates it although she will dump it in a second if I sit down on the couch! She can get in my lap then.
The pup sleeps in my studio (the basement) next to the wood heater, where he has a bed. He's not scared of it anymore and sees that it is very warm! It seems most of society would berate me for not letting the dog inside but I just cannot abide a dog in the house. Or more than one cat for that matter and she must have a bath every so often.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!!

Hey Pablo! Yes, it is unsweetened tea! although some people around here have the audacity to add copious amounts of sugar to it. Bleh!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family also!!

Happy Thanksgiving Annie.

Just a suggestion. Pets like to chew on electric cords. I would try to hide it someway. My old little Pug naps on a heating blanket all winter which I have under an old blanket.

Hey Richard! You know, I hadn't thought about that. Grendal has never tried to chew on any cords but I'll put something over it anyway; that's a good thought.
Oh, and the metal ball into a bird feeder is a cool idea too!
Happy Thanksgiving to you.
