BRRR!!! January in Minnesota, -21.5°.

Good riddance to 2009. It was a year of pain, emotional and physical. Enough said.

Welcome, 2010. Here’s hoping it ends with more fun than it started. Get up, let the dogs out, beat the kittens away from the front door because they like to chase my birds, start the fire in the wood stove (-2 out there, it’s nippy), break up a fight between Frankie and Baby (cats), hear some yowling coming from my studio, go in there to find Peaches has wormed her way into the ferret cage (door is wired shut with a 2“ opening to keep the cats out of there) and Fang (the ferret) has her helpless by grabbing the nape of her neck. Amazing how a ferret 1/6 the size can disable a cat. So I have to get the door unwired (how the heck did she get it there?!?) and pry Fang off of her. So while I’m there, I might as well clean the cage, then both the litter boxes. Then I finally get to sit down with a cup of coffee. Might as well add a dash of buttershots to it. :)

A good start for the new year, more stupid pet and bead photos. This one is of S.C. (Scaredy Cat) watching my embroidery machine move by itself. She is just fascinated with this machine. Last night I had to chase her away from it because she was trying to bat the needle as it was moving.

Some of my favorite beads:

Here’s wishing a peaceful and loving upcoming year to all.

Yup, it’s winter. It was -6° this morning. Just a little crisp. At least the sun was shining.

The latest on the lawsuit against Ullja for defamation: her lawyer filed a motion to have the deposition quashed, but the court denied it and ordered her to present herself for the deposition. I just read a copy of the discovery questionnaire, and I’m shaking my head (again) in disbelief. How can she deny so many things that can so very easily be proved. One glaring example is denying she sold beads claiming she had made them herself. That was all hashed over last year with Etsy. They were reluctant to do anything, but they were presented with too much proof to ignore it. So that’s all evidence sitting there just waiting to be presented at court. I just don’t understand her reasoning.

On January 11th, the court will hear her motion for change of venue.

Enough of the icky stuff of life, now it’s the fun part of my blog, Stupid Pet Photos!
This is my most favorite pet, Fang the ferret. She is SUCH a character! Here she is diving into a dishpan of snow.

Another togetherness photo, Frankie curled up to Chester:

And while I do hate the snow, I have to admit it makes nice photos,
