My 'clean everything' day is Sunday--in preparation for going back to work on Monday. I mainly do laundry and cook a big meal for the week so we can have planned left-overs.

I had to re-make the Meyer Lemon Jelly. It didn't set. I removed the little bit of peel--Hun Bun wasn't fond of it anyway. So, the second time around, it set. Now, I know what to do if Tom gives me more of them.

I also made some vanilla bean infused plum jam. It looks, smells and tastes fantastic.

I usually take jam or jelly to breakfast on Thursday mornings. I have breakfast with friends and then I am off to work. Now I have some new ones to bring!

It's gunna be cold tonight, supposed to get down to 25 degrees. I think the fuzzies know this as I haven't seen much of them today. No doubt they will all snuggle together tonight!

Made some jelly today: Meyer Lemon & Apple Cider Spiced Cinnamon.

Going to have coffee with friends tonight.

Blossom was scratching at the inside of the front screen door this morning under our watchful eyes. I whisked her away and made it clear that the front screen door was no place for a fuzzie!!!

This morning, I went to take a small bag of trash out to the bin. Well, Blossom must have sneaked out with me. About an hour later, she scratched at the door. Upon my investigating this sound, I discovered her outside--fatal to a ferret!!! (She could have been attacked by an animal, cat, dog, etc.) She is the youngest. They are all curious by nature. But, although I'm a little upset that we may have lost her, at least she was smart enough to scratch at the door to get back in. I'll be watching the doors like a hawk in future...

Still cold outside...Bear and Fifi were playing, chasing each other through the tube in the kitchen while we were eating. Cute!

It was one of those odd Sundays that I had to go into the office to work. Bear was being his usual separation anxiety self and didn't want me to leave. He wanted me to carry him around most of the day. When I got home, him and Fifi were chasing each other through one of the tubes--they were having fun!!!

Day off work. All the fuzzies seem to be happy to have their house back. : ) Fifi needs to go to the vet for a distemper shot and check up. Just have to figure out when I can schedule it.

Back to work tomorrow. The fuzzies are now confused. Everyone has gone home. Fifi was doing a lot of chattering. We are not sure if she was happy or annoyed. She is due for a vet visit so, we will note this with the vet. She may need meds after surgery. She wasn't aggressive, just really active. With all the house guests, not really surprising. Will be watching her for the next few days. The house is quiet right now. Doing laundry and fuzzies are sleeping.

The fuzzies are getting lots of attention with all the kidlets around. They especially like to crawl around in the blankets with the kids giggling. : )

Fifi is getting lots of holding time during this weekend. My nephew Andrew has especially taken to her quite well.

House full of company. Ferrets are confined only at night to the spare room. They are enjoying playing with the kids though. : )

Have the day off work. Getting the last bit of housekeeping done before house guests arrive. Fuzzies all up earlier curious about all the cleaning. Changed the food/water bowls. Will have to confine them to the guest room at night so they don't climb up anyone's leg while asleep!

Work was slow today, got a lot of catching up done. It's going to be a slow week so, I will likely not have to work the rest of the week. The fuzzies will have plenty of stimulation with house guests coming.

I can't do anything about it. That is what is so upsetting about losing a fuzzy suddenly.

Fifi is still doing great. I could do something about her condition.

I am still amazed at how well Fifi is doing. She is the younger Fifi we remember, feisty and playful. : )
I was a little worried about her age and having surgery. I am glad now that she had the surgery--our vet was very reassuring.

I made chicken soup today. It rained and got a bit cool overnight.

All is quiet on the fuzzie front this evening. It's raining and everyone must be 'tucked-up' sleeping. Good sleeping weather. : )

While I was getting ready for work, three of the five fuzzies decided to stage a protest outside the bathroom door. I usually just have Bear there, waiting for me to cuddle him but, Pancake and Flower joined in. Bear typically ends up in my claw-foot bath tub with a towel. So, I put all three of them in there--they had fun sniffing the towel and Pancake *almost* got out of the tub.

Usual Monday, work, Bear didn't want me to leave, Pancake was under-foot too. She is starting to show signs, like Bear, of separation anxiety--unofficially diagnosed.

The usual flurry of cleaning on Sunday...including the water fountain for the fuzzies. It was given to me--they love it. Pancake especially likes to drink from the stream of water.

Going to the hunting lease again tonight for BBQ.

It was cold last night, all the fuzzies sleep together a lot when it is cold. I love finding piles of ferrets sleeping together--they are just too cute.

Day off work except:

Went to feed the cat I am taking care of (it's my 'other' job)

Had a conference call I had to take at 6 p. m.

Went to Hun Bun's hunting lease for communal dinner. Had a nice time, met lots of new people.

Clipped Fifi's nails...it is awesome how well she is doing--she will be 7 years old in February 2011.

  Fifi--Lookin' Good!!!
Fifi is lookin' sooo good!!! Fur growing back, very playful with the others. Her and Blossom were chasing each other (and squeaking) this morning. She is due for a distemper shot at the end of the month so, she will get a check-up with the vet as well.

All the fuzzies were confused today. I stayed home sick from work. Bear happily sat in my lap for a bit. No worries, this is a 24 hour thing. I'm back to work tomorrow--short day on Thursdays.

And of course, Bear didn't want me to leave him for work. I've explained to him that I have to go to work so I can pay his (and all the others) vet bills.
