Colin graciously went with me last weekend on a women's retreat type weekend to take care of Mavry. He was wonderful and he says he got to know Mavry a lot better from spending all day with her for almost three days. We were at the foot of a mountain and the weather the first evening looked like this. It was sort of magical.
Along with my warm clothes, we also forgot to pack a bed for Mavry. She usually only gets up once a night (and has slept through the night a few times), so we could have just made a place on the floor, but since we weren't sure if she'd be thrown off by a new place, we wanted her close by for easy lifting from bed. So, Colin made a "co-sleeper" out of the luggage rack, a drawer with a towel for cushion, and a chair. She liked it so well she slept through the night anyhow, but I was glad to have her next to me instead of a few feet down.
