Whole Lotta Nothing

So - here it is the 9th of the month and I have only blogged one time.  Bad me.  But - actually its because we are in a really good rhythm around here.  Everyone seems to be happy and healthy and doing their thing and there just hasn't been all that much to write about.

The biggest news is that the air conditioner in critter land is finally fixed.  We have been having problems with it for some time and I think we finally have it fixed as of this morning.  Hooray!  I have been using fans to circulate the air down there which has worked fine for the little critters but now that I got to shut them off today - holy heck - it was loud in their space!  I am still in love with the new floor - so easy to maintain a level of clean down there!  Kitties and ferrets are all doing just great!!

Emma is doing great as well.  For the most part she is being a pretty good pup.  I got her a new feeding station yesterday - a water dispenser and a feeder so she has food and water available at all times.  She did before as well, it was just messier and had to be filled more often.  She goes in next Tuesday for another hair cut - geez her hair grows fast!

Winston is just fine - crazy little pig.  As I type he is napping on the patio - its lovely today - not too hot.  He seems happy and healthy as well.  We have a good schedule going with him - up and in his little room (laundry room) early - 6ish.  He gets a few cookies to tide him over til breakfast.  Then he eats around 7:30 and then outside to play til noonish.  Then inside for napping in the cool and then back out around 4 where he plays until 7ish.  Then inside for some dinner and our nightly routine.  He seems quite content on this summer schedule.

All in all we are just status quo around here.  The weekend will be very busy and schedules will likely get turned upside down.  Hopefully back to normalcy Sunday afternoon.
