Munchkin loves to play dress up and loves to pose for the camera, and here she is doing both!
Munchkin is staying with her Grandma Lowery, who took these pictures and posted them to Facebook.
Kat now has heat at the trailer! Thankfully nothing was wrong with the heating system, so they have been toasty warm since Monday afternoon. And yesterday afternoon (Tuesday) the phone line was repaired and activated, so they now have phone service and dial-up Internet. Unfortunately, DSL service is not available in that area yet, so she is going to have to look into satellite service, which she will have to do anyway if she wishes anything more than the most basic television service.
A bit more cleaning and then a trip to Tallahassee to get at least some of their belongings and then maybe they can feel more settled in.
I can tell it is now November. We had our heating system turned on last Friday and none too soon, as Saturday morning was about 35, raining, and very windy. You could see a very light dusting of snow the topmost peak of the Huachuca Mountains.
Today there are some patches of blue here and there, as you can see in this picture:
But more of the sky looks like this:
It is only 47 degrees, with a 70% chance of precipitation. And wind. Always the wind here.
Last week was a busy and stressful one. The tenants in our mobile home back in Alabama finally vacated so that Kat could begin moving in. And there have been myriad things to change over (utilities, etc.) and repair, let alone cleaning up the trailer from the mess the tenant left! Today she gets phone hooked up, so she will at least have dial-up internet, and the furnace repair guy comes to discover why the furnace is beeping when it is turned on. They are making do with a couple of small room heaters, so hopefully the furnace repair will be done quickly and easily.
More stressful has been trying to long distance diagnose the radiator issues with the van and finding someone local to help Freddy with it. I just received a call saying the new radiator was back in and holding fluids, so that is a very good thing! May this week go more smoothly than last week!
My good friend Carol (Life with Nin) told me she has been missing my photos (an oh so gentle reminder that I have not been blogging lately), so here are some pictures I took while recently back in Alabama.
Kat & Fiona came up from Tallahassee and stayed with me, which was very nice as we were able to spend a good bit of time together. Labor Day was cold and rainy (thanks to Tropical Storm Lee), so we hung out for a while at the River Oaks Mall in Decatur. Miss Munchkin loved riding their carousel!
Here’s the Munchkin in our motel room after a bath one evening.
She is getting so big!
