Yeah, Yeah, I'm Overdue. General Boring Update Time.

     Obviously, we've been moved into our new home for over a month now.  We still have some organizing and possession reduction to accomplish, but we are quite settled in.  We've been enjoying watching the deer mosey through the yard looking for apples, collecting and consuming apples ourselves, and generally existing in our cozy domicile.

     Living with Horus is going quite well.  We officially hit the six-month relationship mark in mid-September, and didn't realize it for another two weeks.  *facepalm*  Things are not always perfect, but we are constantly growing together, and that is good.  It's been so... normal otherwise, and there isn't really a whole lot to say.

     I'm still struggling to find the combination of time and energy to renew my relationship with Ptah.  We've rarely had the same schedule lately, but I think that won't be an issue much longer, as work has come to a screeching halt.  We're experiencing a severe lack of precipitation, and it seems unlikely that we will start getting rain before we start getting frost, so plants aren't really growing... and plants are my work.

     Before we moved, we cared for, and then found an organization to take, a litter of feral kittens and their mother.  The kittens were able to be socialized and put up for adoption, but their mother will likely never think much of humans, so we have kept her as a barn cat.  The lady who runs the rescue organization had another recent momcat who was wild, and was having trouble finding a home for her... so we have two barn cats.  The outside ladies seem to tolerate each other, and have been in the workshop for over a month, so home should be firmly established for them.  We'll start letting them outside any day now.

     The inside cats have completely adjusted.  They seem to like the hardwood floors (and especially the rugs on them), and the myriad of windows around the house. 

     All in all, life is rather mundane.  But life is also good.
