The cats are here!

Our ten year old pre-owned cats arrived Monday. As the previous owner, Marco, was carrying them up our steps the handle came off the carrier and they rolled a couple of steps. Not a great beginning. When the carrier was opened and Ralph left the room, they went into hiding and stayed hidden til the middle of the night. 

Sylvester, the boy, is huge! He's at least 20 pounds! His sister Satina, "Tina", is smaller but still hefty. We thought she might be invisible for the first few days, because we never saw her. The last few nights she's been sociable at 4 a.m. They're still exploring their new house. 

Eventually they'll stand still long enough for me to get pictures. 

We're going to Mike and Donna's tomorrow for Easter dinner. I made Joseph's Trifle, banana split dessert, and cream cheese/tomato dip tonight. Tomorrow morning I'll make pineapple stuffing, brussels sprouts, and crescent hot dogs. We're taking Mom Florence with us. She enjoys going to Mike and Donna's- as soon as she sits down, Mike hands her a glass of wine. 

Tomorrow is also Big Mike's birthday- he'll be 57. 

We're off from work all week. Monday my car is going in the shop to get the oil changed, brakes checked, and the window motor checked. Friday Mom has an eye doc appt. This is the 3rd one she's had- she has a habit of cancelling if snow is forecast, without waiting to see if it actually snows. 

My goal for the week is to make Baby Girl's quilts for the shower, which is coming up fast. She's the size of an ear of corn this week. I just finished her afghan. 

And another week is over!
