Re: re nursery/weird weather


I took this afternoon off and got my first bit of sun. I'm all pink. It's
been a weird winter Kitty. It was 30 something last week and now it's
mid-70's. That's how our weather is here. it goes from hot to cool to cold
to hot as heck and miserable. We enjoy about 10 weeks of niceness and then
none of us go outside until September. LOL!
