Settling In

We've moved and we're settled.  Boo and Boudreaux are both happy.  My mother's happy and full of project ideas for me.  I've been far busier than I imagined that I'd be.

Boo went through a difficult transition when we moved.  He was content and well oriented in the day time.  Night time was a different matter altogether.  We had several nights when he was confused and awake all night.  Those times seem to be lessening.  Thank goodness!

This afternoon I painted plant shelves and a small table for our front porch and a shelf for baskets.  I also managed to paint a goodly portion of my hair the same semi-gloss white.  Guess this means I won't have to dye my hair any time soon.

The day after we moved, one of Boo's daughters and her two lovely daughters came to visit.  It was wonderful to see them again!  Anticipating their visit really helped Boo make this transition more easily.  Later, I'll post some of the drawings they gave Boo.  Boudreaux decided to have no part of the grandchildren.  And they so wanted to play with him.  Instead, they got to look at him hiding behind the sofa and under a bed.

Last week we began eating breakfast on the front porch.  It's a sneaky way to get Boo out of bed and out of doors.  Boudreaux enjoys playing in the yard and running to the porch to meow at Boo periodically.  Sometimes he'll stay up the rest of the day.  Usually he takes a nap after lunch.  Let me change that...after lunch Boo and Boudreaux take naps.
