over the river and through the woods grandmother's house we go!
I'm spending a lot of time at my grandmother's house over winter break, because she's having some health issues and she usually lives alone.  
Her house is absolutely adorable.

the kitchen is decorated in red and yellow
coffee and tea

One of my favorite things about being at my grandmother's house is spending time with her cats (I am officially out of the cat-lady closet.  Whatevah.  Love me, love my love of cats.)  Their real names are Bucky (the big guy) and Cocoa (the little guy), but lately we've taken to referring to them as "The Chaplain" and "The Sergeant-At-Arms," respectively.  Which makes it very funny to talk about them-- for instance, "The Sergeant-at-Arms is enjoying some kibbles" or "The Chaplain and the Sergeant-at-Arms have retreated to their love nest."
