Easy Like Sunday

There's nothing like taking a bath in the sun.

Breakfast at Wimbledon

I am watching Wimbledon and rooting for Roger Federer.

Paws crossed.

 Oh holy carp! Roger won his 8th Wimbledon title! Now he has 19 Major titles, more than anybody else! Woo Hoo!!

Sleepy Saturday

It's sunny, it's 76F and it's dry. I am napping on the front porch.

Where else would I be?

Back in the Saddle Again

I am sorry I haven't been blogging regularly. Mom and I have been wicked busy.

Last month (wow, has it been that long?) Mom and Mim-may and I flew to Chicago.  Here I am in the airport.  I've been to lots of airports. Airports are no big deal.

From Chicago we went to Colorado, a very big, very square state "out west."  This picture was taken at Kenosha Pass, 10,000 feet above sea level. That's high. In our house in New Hampster, we are 318 feet above sea level.

See? I really was there.

During the 9 days we were in Colorado we did a lot of nothing, and some neat stuff, but I didn't pose for many pictures. Mom has been very bizzy with her day-hunting gig (she says they are short-handed and she is doing the jobs of 3 people) and that's why she hasn't been able to help me blog as much.

I'm trying to get her to see the error of her ways. She's been posting stuff on her other blog that should have been posted here, but I think she got into a rut. I've told her in no uncertain terms that she has to get back in the saddle (to use a Colorado term) and help me post more often.

In the meantime, we are both watching Wimbledon and rooting for my favorite guy, Roger Federer.

Some things never change.

Happy Father's Day Mr Karate!

It's Mr Karate's first Father's Day.  Happy Father's Day Mr Karate and all Dads everywhere.

She Crawls! She Stands!

OK, so I only have video, but no regular pictures so I can't show you, BUT... Little Miss can crawl and pull herself up to a standing position.

That means she probably thinks she will be able to chase me around the house when she visits later this fall.

Not. Gonna. Happen.

Napping on the Front Porch

Yesterday was very warm, and Mom had the A/C on inside, but I wanted to be out on the porch. I took a nap out there. It was great.

Formerly Feral Friday

When the sun is out first thing in the morning, and it is warm outside, Mom opens the door to the front porch to let the light shine in. This morning, I was already out there, having gone out through the window. Mom didn't want to bother me, so she left the storm door closed.  I am spending more time on the front porch these days.

Mom's Got a New Watch

Yeah, Mom got a watch with a cat on it.

My Mom rocks.

Chipmunk TV

The Bird TV out here in the boonies of New Hampster is pretty good, but the Chipmunk and Skwirl TV are awesome too. Can you see the little guy I have got my eye on?

Rubylocks & Little Miss

It turns out that Rubylock's hair isn't red any more. But who cares when she is as pretty as she is? Mr Karate took this picture of her and Little Miss and the quilt Mom made for them at the Manhattan Beach Pier.

Yeah, I'm in love.

My House

Mom's been working out in the front garden. The front of the house faces East and gets the morning sun. She's planted lots of pretty flowers out there.

She has hot pink geraniums in boxes on either side of the driveway, and boxes of purple waving petunias on the side near the lamppost. She has a couple of pots of some fancy stuff (Ipomoea, Zinnia, Salvia, Lobularia and Verbena) that love the sun. She put two out front and put another one so she could see it from the kitchen window. She had one last year and the hummingbirds loved it.

She also put a big planter in front of the "crocodile rock" that has a Canna and something called a Rio and some other pretty white flower.

I snoopervised from the front porch. The front of the house faces East and gets the morning sun.

This is a Columbine in the shade garden on the North side of the house. Mom assures me she did not plant it this close to the house, but I cannot see it so I can't tell you for sure if she is right or just imagining things.

I can't see this bleeding heart from any window, but I think it's very pretty. Mom has been working hard to get this plant to grow, and finally it is doing it's thing after she moved something else to give this guy more space.

We are all set to watch the Tennis in Paris at Roland Garros.

Not Very Wordy Wednesday

Mom got some new fabric for the back of a quilt. It came out of the drying monster and Mom put it on her work table. I'm pretty sure she said I should stay off.

As if.

Garden Time

Mom's been playing in the dirt again. Yesterday she got up and went to the garden stores. She came back with dirt and mulch, and lots and lots of plants. This morning she got up and planted the herbs in the herb garden while a Dutch Baby baked in the oven (she promised me it wasn't a real baby). She planted three parsley plants, three Basil, more chives, oregano, thyme, and rosemary. There was a sage plant and a parsley plant that came back from last year. There are also some garlic chives in there somewhere, and Mom has a Cilantro plant she will put in a pot so it can live in the shade. Mom says it will go to seed too fast if she keeps it in the sun with the other herbs.

Me? I'm on the front porch; where else do you think I'd be?
