Not so Frigid Friday

Hello! It's not below zero today! Actually the weather is getting warmer, which usually means s**w.
 Most of the special projects Mommy was working on are done (like fixing the puter and stuff). But there is one that is a secret and is an ongoing project, so if she ever finishes it (lebenty years from now) we will let you know. And if it fails, you are out of luck. No sharing!
How's that for intrigue!
Anyway, it seems to be a grey day but they are saying something about that dirty word (s**w) maybe next week. Well, great MOUSES as Nissy would have said and Seville probably does. We still haven't had lots of snow this year. "And this is Minnesnowda, don't cha know". We hope the east coast slams are on their way out!
Yes there are some boring projects around here, but that's like laundry and cleaning and stuff, and you'd probably be as bored as I am when your own peeps attempt them, right?
There is a mysterious noise here today. Only it's not mysterious really. It's the screens confronting the winds blowing around here. I would have said waffling, but that would make all the girl kitties (except maybe Katie) sigh and forget everything but that certain orange cat that lives a short way off from us. The wind is going through the tiny holes in the screens and making noise. And the screens are shaking  and making noise. There!
Oh, yeah, Mommy's Kindle got broke ( I didn't do it, either!) and she decided to look and see if she could afford to get it fixed or get another (not a chance, they usually are very expensive, but Mommy likes to look). Well, she's only got half of the grocery list purchased, so she thought she would sigh over the fancy Kindles. And maybe if Amazon fixed stuff like that maybe we could afford that.
She spoke to the Tech department who got her a very nice deal on a slight upgrade to the one she broke.  Not the lit screen or the emails or fancy stuff that acts like a small tablet, either.  The Tech department added free two day shipping (and we aren't Prime members) too! And "tech" was a lovely man from Chicago. Price is a little over what it costs to order a pizza to be delivered (waaaaaaahhhh, no pizza delivery for at least another month). Helpppppppp!!!!!!!!
Now if we could just afford the rest of the groceries (MOL)!!!
That about sums up things around here.
love ya,

We did not get the big snow last week.
It went out to sea :)
WE did get some snow Friday and it delayed Mom getting home.
It was not a lot of snow, but it was heavy and made it slippery.
We are glad your Mom got another Kindle.
Mom has an old Kobo and likes to get books from Book Bub :)
Good to hear you are not getting tons of snow. Hope that lasts.
Have a fun weekend.
Purrs Georgia and Julie,
