Jack-O-Lounging

It seems to me this winter has been colder than the others of recent winters gone by. And I've used the old gas fireplace more than John would like me to (it costs money blah blah blah). I took these photos of Jack the cat on a particularly biting cold night last week (John was teaching that night, so I lit it up--shhh! He doesn't need to know). Yeah, there's little Jack (short for Jack-O-Lantern) lounging in the living room, not too pleased I was interrupting his quiet time by the fire.


And when Jack had about enough of my laughing and snapping photos, he took off. He thought he was very clever when he simply up and rounded the corner only to set up camp in the kitchen! I think by the time the last photo was taken he'd pretty much given up. Sorry Jack Jack.

**I think today would be a good day to clean the fireplace doors.

I want to come and lounge in front of your fireplace too!

Me too!! But I'd rather hang with Louie if that's OK...

Misty Dawn said...

He's pretty. Doesn't Louie get to lie in front of the fire? Huh? Why not?

Cold? I hear ya. We had a taste of spring today - temps almost up to 40 - but we're headed back to subzero temps again tomorrow. And I sure am missing my gas fireplace right about now. I used to run that baby every single night - it's so warm and cozy no wonder Jack stretches out in front of it.

I think it's time for some Louie pics...it's been too long!

BTW: The other day I actually had someone with a blogspot url make a comment and it showed her picture icon. Maybe there's something in your comment settings??

Try that, Ms. Vain!

Jen said...

Ok...I think you have to add it to you gmail account settings.

Did I say Ms. Vain? Oh man, I totally meant, Mother Theresa-like!

Don't you just LOVE a good fire? And as for the doors, those things are THE HARDEST thing to keep clean in my house!! Beautiful, Stacey.

Looks like the life to me! I wouldn't mind hanging out in front of your fireplace (John need not know ;) )!

Smart cat, he knows where it is at! He has the best spot in the whole house.
