Jean Claude wanted to go to his spot by the window early today. Guess he had an early morning meeting with his bird friends. He pulled at the blinds and then when I woke up he patted the blinds to indicate to me to pull them up. I obliged. Later I let him outside -or rather he and Roxie peered outside from the upstairs porch into the yard. Too cold still , plus I think they were both entertained with watching me make wheat pancakes. For some reason I have not yet got the hang of it. Cooking is relaxing and sometimes challenging — especially wheat pancakes.
