Happy Holidays and all that. It’s been a while for me and for other bloggers too, but it looks like BrettCajun redesigned his blog with a new look!
I had an interview last week, which seemed to go well but was right before the holidays so I haven’t heard back from them yet. We shall see. I’ve decided to volunteer in the mean time with a homeless youth shelter/program that serves a lot of LGBT people. The downside is that they have a waiting list for volunteer positions – I will be going for an interview for that tomorrow. It will give me something to do and meet people as well.
This is Theo, one of the three kittehs in our house. He was being naughty and climbing the Christmas tree:
There are two other cats in the house too. One is Pepper who is warming up to me, and the other one is Izzy who is terrified of me. I call him “Scared Kitty.” We are pretty sure he was traumatized in a previous home, we’re guessing by a bearded male as he scurries away in my presence.
The roomies wanted to get cats beforehand but got them sooner as we have critters in the attic. Once they get all their shots they will be set loose in the attic to scare them away. I suspect the critters are squirrels, but want to get a wildlife viewing camera for my birthday to catch them on film. Then I can post critter pics on this here blog.
There is holly in Portland everywhere. It loves this climate and looks seasonally festive this time of year:
Hiking is wetter and colder nowadays but we still get out and about. This is from the Eagle Creek trail up the Columbia Gorge:
The waterfalls along that trail were very scenic.
