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?

Millie Doing Quality Testing

You know, the work never ends around here. If I'm not watching over my domain from one of the two kitty condos, it's catching up on my ZZZZ's or performing Quality Assurance checks on Mom's quilts.

Not only did I check this quilt for sewing mistakes, but I checked it for softness, warmth and cuddle-ability. Yes, that is a word, and it is an extremely important quality in a quilt. This quilt passed with flying colors.

Which is funny, considering...

Oh crap. Mom won't let me tell you.

Wordy Wednesday

It is finally warm enough for Mom to leave the window to the front porch open so I can come and go as I please. In fact, Mom had to stick her arm through the window just to take this picture of me.

Millie Finds a Boo Boo

Yup, I did. Mom was sewing this quilt together and didn't notice she made a mistake. But I saw it and went to sit right next to it so she would see. It took a while. I had to be very persistent, but she finally saw the mistake and fixed it.

I'm telling you, my job as quilt QA inspector never ends.

I know I haven't been blogging much lately, but I am fine. I have been napping behind the couch and Mom hasn't been able to get many pictures. As the weather warms up and I spend more time on the front porch, that will change, but the weather has been wet and cool lately so I have been staying inside.

I'm sorry I haven't been blogging lately. Mom has been busy, but I've just been napping. I know, I've been very lazy, but I guess I'm just getting slower now that I am a senior cat.

It was so nice this past weekend that Mom left the window open for me. I love having a front row seat to everything that goes on in this part of the neighborhood.

Happy Easter!

Isn't this photo of Mr Karate and Little Miss just PERFECT!!!

Mom and I both think so.  Happy Easter!

Where Am I Wednesday

It's a warm Wednesday morning, do you know where I am?

I'm on the front porch. Where else would I be?

It was in the 80s yesterday (29C). It was so warm last night Mom kept some windows open. It will be cooler than that for the next couple of days, but it will be "normal" for this time of year, so that is just fine with us.

Sun Puddle

Wow! Yesterday was nice, but Sunday was nicer! It got to be 60F. Mom opened windows and the door to the front porch. I spent a lot of time out there, but decided to lie in this nice sun puddle.

A Week

Wow! What a difference a week makes.

This was the view outside the side door last Saturday.

And here is the same view this morning. This is much better. I spent some time on the front porch this morning, and that was really good. I will be spending a lot more time out there as the weather warms up.

I Am Eleven!

Oh. My. Bast.

I can't believe it. Today is my birthday and I am eleven years old. Yikes! I'm almost a geezer kitty. Dunno how that happened!

I didn't even know if I would make it to one year old, because I almost went to the Bridge when I was not yet three months old. I got hit by a car and got a broken leg and then I got rescued and now I live the life of a lucky cat. I have a terrific forever home with my awesome Mom. I have not one but TWO kitty condos, sensational bird TV, more places to nap than I could ever want, and best friends all over the world.

And Mom says I changed her life. Guess that means I'm not the only lucky lady in this house!

Millie Monday

Yup, that's me jammed in the corner of the couch next to Mom. She's actually resting her elbow on my back, and that's fine with me.

She's been working on the tippy tappy lapbox for most of the last week and I've been right here next to her, napping and purring.

Our big snow from Saturday has melted quite a lot already, and should melt a lot more in the next few days. At least, Mom hopes so.

April Fool's

I would love to be able to tell you that this is all an elaborate joke.

I'd like to be able to say that these pictures were taken another time.

Maybe last month, or two years ago, but they were all taken this morning.

This year, the April Fool's Day joke is on us.

I am sure Mother Nature is laughing.

Truthful Thursday

It is getting warmer out. Today is supposed to be pretty nice, so I asked Mom to let me out on the front porch for a little while this morning.

HOWEVER... In typical New England fashion, we are supposed to get a (gasp!) snowstorm on Friday and into Saturday. We could get 1 to 3 inches or even up to a foot of the damn white stuff before the storm goes away on Saturday afternoon.

What an April Fool joke that will be!
