Da Beebs: We are happy to report that #1's stuff arrived safely from Canada yesterday. A total of 34 boxes of various sizes and shapes. At the same time, the UPS guy delivered a flatpack bookcase that she had ordered for the books that were coming. So, yesterday afternoon and evening, she opened about a dozen of the boxes and assembled the bookcase, Guess which took longer?
She says there is probably more stuff in the other boxes, but this is some of the stash for us so far.
Lots to be thankful for!
Da Trav: pssssssttttttt? I wanted to let you know that I too am thankful. #1 has finished preparing my winter shelter and it looks pretty cozy:
That's woofie Tommy's old Varikennel. It's on a wooden platform with lots of cardboard layers for insulation. Inside it is a doggie bed on which is a large (brand new!) covered litter box. Inside that is a comfy kitty bed. On top is an inverted old bed shell for more insulation and there is bubble wrap and straw between the box and the varikennel. #1 says if it gets really cold, she will put a cover around the kennel. For now, there is some carpeting on top, and my food bowls are there. It's at the back of the garage so it will be out of the rain and wind and any snow. She says the garage door will always be open enough for me to be able to get in and out.
For the first time ever, I will have somewhere snug and dry to sleep this winter. I am thankful.
