We are near the end of February. Already my allergies are creeping up and I am seeing spring and summer shoes on the web. Before you know it, it will be time to clean off the outdoor furniture and set up outside seating areas. Grace, the tabby, has already started making new spaces. A few weeks ago as I emptied shopping bags, Grace claimed them and then dragged her favorite mouse toy to the place where she gathered the bags. Yes, she now has a play station in the middle of the living room floor.
