Almost Wordless Wednesday

Yes, it's what you think it is.

One Year, One City

Look, I can tell you all about the non-adventures in my life, but I'd be ignoring something a lot more important. A year ago a couple of angry young men tried to destroy a very special day in Boston, a city an hour's drive from my humble home. They killed three people, and changed forever the lives of many others. The city came together and became Boston Strong.

This photo from The Boston Globe, taken a week ago, shows some of the folks who were running, watching, or injured along with many first responders, doctors, policemen, and passersby who helped. You can go here for an interactive page of who's who.

The Boston Marathon will be run next Monday, and steps have been taken to make it a safe day. I may live in New Hampster, but Boston is in my back yard. I am Boston Strong.

Not much going on here today. It's foggy, but is supposed to get really warm later today. Mom can't wait. She spent a lot of time yakking with Mr Karate last night and didn't get the house clean the way she usually does before the work week starts. Mom finished the back of the black and white quilt and now it is ready to go away for quilting. Mom says she's going to give the house a good clean.

I'll be in the tent.

What I did yesterday

Mom and I went to a quilt show yesterday.  We saw lots of amazing quilts.

I liked the "Quilt with the Dragon Tattoo" by Nancy Arsenault from Tucson Arizona.

Mom liked this one by Melody Johnson. It's easy to tell that Mom loves color.

 We visited with Cynthia from WOODbyC. Cynthia turns wood into tools. She makes beautiful things.

Naturally Mom had to buy some for herself.

Do you remember I told you Mom had to buy some unmentionables?

Well she bought some of those too!

Sunny Saturday

The weather is finally warming up. It should hit 70F (21C) today, and I think everybody can agree that makes a fine day.  Mom has already baked a batch of granola, run the laundry through the washing monster, and is going shopping later for some unmentionables. This afternoon she will go to a quilt show.

I shall nap in my cat hammock, or my tent, or my kitty condo.  What will you do?

Black And White Thursday

Is the snow gone? Is it when? Let's look outside.

I am truly sorry Iza, but there is still snow on the ground. You have not won the When When Contest this year.

Not Yet When Wednesday

Marley, I am sorry, but there is still snow outside. You have not won the When When Contest. On the other paw, your fur-sister Iza has a good shot tomorrow.

Then again, I could be wrong.

Tuxie Tuesday

This is the chair where Mom usually dumps her stuff when she gets home, so that's why you haven't seen pictures of me in it.

Last night I was napping, minding my own business, when Mom approached with a bag full of quilts she will bring to a meeting later today.  I was forced to tell her to put her stuff someplace else.

I mean, sheesh! I was napping, for heaven's sake!

It was warm yesterday, and it rained most of the night, but there is still snow out there. I am terribly sorry Poppy Q and KQ Sue, but you will not be the winners of the When When Contest.

It will be When soon, but when?

Mischievous Monday

Mim-may and Mom went shopping yesterday and Mom bought stuff for the wedding. Mom bought a pair of pants and a blouse. The pants were white and the blouse was black-and-white. It's so nice to see my influence is finally rubbing off.

As for Mr Karate and Rubylocks....

I dunno.

There was still snow on the ground when Mom went to bed last night. We'll see what happens when the sun comes up.

Update: Ayla, Georgia, I am sorry. There is still snow out there and neither of you has won the When When Contest.  The end is coming soon... Who will win the When When?

Sunny Sunday

It's going to be a gorgeously sunny day! The temps will get up to 55F (12.7C) today.

Nobody guessed this date for the When When Contest, but we will have a winner soon. How soon? We'll all have to keep watching to find out. The weather guys have predicted five days with high temps above 54F and lows no lower than 32C (0F).  Stay tuned.

Me? I'm just waking up, but I'm going to stay in my tent for a while longer, remembering the lovely time I had with my sweetie, Monty Q, last night as we celebrated my birthday.

I Am Eight!

Today is my birthday, and I am eight.  It's pretty amazing actually, because when I was just a kit I got hit by a car that broke my leg in two places and dislocated it from my hip. I could have gone to the Bridge, but I was rescued, and now I live a cushy life in New Hampster with my Mom.  I've got a sweetheart, Monty Q, and furry friends all over the world. I'm really lucky.

There's still snow on the ground outside.
 Treasure, Tiki, Kirby, Stan Lee and Kesey, none of you have won the When When contest.

This is now the only snow Mom and I can see when we look out the window. When will this snow go?

Finally Friday

Another sunny day, but there is still snow.

I am so sorry, Derby and Ducky, but you are not the winners of the When When Contest.

I'm getting my beauty rest, because tomorrow is a special day for me.

 Hey Mom, hurry up. You have to post photos of the snow for today's blog.

Lookit how much the snow is melting.
We had a frost overnight, but no snow.

We still have enough of that. I am sorry, but Mr HB White, and Mr OB Kitty, neither of you has won the When When Contest.

It is supposed to be 52F (11.11C) and sunny all day today. It is supposed to be 63F (17C) on Tuesday. Do you think the snow will last that long?
