Couch Cat: Freezing your butt off

Winter comes every year and we all say the same things about the cold.  “Ooh boy, it’s cold!” or “it’s too much cold out there.” What we are all really saying is that we are freezing our butts off.  

Couch Cat: Terrorists in my garden

I am in the process of working with a talented woman who runs her own gardening company, to tackle the jungle that my garden has become. 

The other day, I violated a hard learned lesson and wore a brand new pair of shoes I bought for office wear, to shop in the mall. I thought that since I was just running in to grab ONE thing, I would be ‘in and out.’ Of course, it never works out that way. Inevitably there are distractions left, right and center, and you end up hiking around the mall, talking to friends you meet and standing in long, unmoving lines all while wearing the WRONG shoes.
