I am getting e mails from people north of the border telling me about the winters that are starting. My family is in Portland, Oregon. They are expecting snow. I just read that a huge storm has hit Seattle. I feel so lucky to be living here where the sun is still hot in the afternoons. I am still not walking but I am standing a few minutes every hour or so. That is a start. I am going back to my casita on Monday. It is always nice to go back home. I will get to see Chico again. I miss him when I am not there. Animals, they are such comforts to us humans. Think of how hard life would be if animals didn't love us.
The cat here finally trusts me and whenever I am sitting down reading she jumps onto my lap. She makes her needs known to me. If she doesn't want me to pet her, she makes sharp jerks of her tail. If she wants to be petted she turns over on her back and exposes her stomach to me. Cats are interesting. They are so different from dogs. I love them both.
