Well, another weekend has come and gone and time goes by so swiftly. It was a good weekend.
Friday night we moved the kittens (and their mama) from the potting shed into the mudroom. The nights are getting rather cool now and the kittens are getting more mobile and they seem to be an especially curious bunch. They started to explore outside the shed and with raccoons and dogs and who knows what other critters that come into our yard, we felt it safer for them to be inside. The mudroom does get a bit too warm in the afternoon when the sun shines directly on it so I put the little ones into one of our crates and took them inside for a nap, keeping them away from our cats. They are amazing, you can almost watch them grow, they are 4 weeks old now and are beginning to eat solid food. I gave them kitten chow to munch on and once a day I give them canned kitten food. It looks like there are three boys and two girls. The girls are the quiet ones, the boys are meowing up a storm. When I went out to them this morning two of them playfully attacked my foot. It will not be easy to let them go and I really hope I will be able to find homes for them.
Saturday morning we spent at the biker ministry helping clean out their basement. Let's just say it was an interesting experience. The volunteer shift was from 8 am - 12 pm, but by 11 am our spirits began to sag a bit, it was just so much work and we realized we would not be able to get it all done but we did make a dent. I was in a group of women who sorted donated clothing items. I have to say that it is a shame what some people donate, stained underwear was one of the grosser items we found, yuck! After we got home we took it easy and just read, knitted and played around on the computer a bit.
Sunday morning we had a great church service and in the evening we went to our first small group meeting. We had a good time of fellowship and Bible study with lovely people and good food and I am looking forward to being a part of this group.
