Not Quite Wordless Wednesday

It's pretty sweet out here on the porch. Care to join me?

Tuxie Tuesday

OK, I'm not ALWAYS on the front porch. Sometimes it rains, and sometimes it cracks and booms. On those occasions it is nice to be someplace very safe where nobody can find me.

Crack and Boom

When the weather gets really hot and sticky, we get crack and boom storms. We had one yesterday that was a doozy. Many homes in New Hampster lost power (but not us.)  This is what the sky looked like yesterday just before the storm hit.

I did not stay on the porch.

All About Mom

Mom will be having a birthday soon. She went out last night with one of her besties. After they had dinner, they went shopping. It's kind of a new thing, but my Mom has discovered bracelets.


First it was this one she bought to wear to Mr Karate's wedding.
 


Then this one because she thought it was so cool. (It's made from a fork.)


Over the last few months she's been adding to her collection, so when she and her bestie came across this display in a store last night...

she kinda lost her mind a little bit, and came home with FIVE new ones.

You can see four of them here, along with shirts, necklaces, earrings and all kind of other silly stuff (like chocolate.) She also bought perfume, and I do NOT know why she needs THAT because I put MY smell on her EVERY day so any cat of woofie knows who she belongs to.

But hey, it's her birthday soon, and my Mom is kinda special, so I'll let it slide.

Have I told you lately how glad I am to be a Cat?

Tuxie Tuesday

I know what you're thinking, but you're wrong. I HAVE moved since I last posted. Just because Mom is busy doing stuff doesn't mean I'm not.

I'm waiting for my friend. A small tabby lady kitty has been visiting me lately. We sit and chat, nose to nose through the screen. Mom shoos her away, but she comes back. Maybe Mom will take a picture next time so you can see.  We don't know where my little friend lives, but she comes by regularly.

Hey, somebody I know and love has a birthday this week!

On The Porch

And you thought I'd be somewhere else?

Breakfast at Wimbledon

Yup, Mom and I are watching the Men's final at Wimbledon. We are rooting for Andy Murray.

Wordy Wednesday

I particularly love the front porch in the morning before the sun hits and it gets too hot. I'll spend time out here again later when the sun moves to the other side of the house, but in the morning it's the perfect spot.

You know what happened? It got really hot over the weekend, and Mom closed the windows and turned on the A/C. Then she took a nap.  She did not know I was camped out on the porch. When she woke up I MEOWED to get back inside.  She let me in right away, of course. It's not her fault. I have several hiding places in the house where she can't see me, so she didn't know I was on the porch.

Heh.

Silly Sunday

Mom and I have finally settled in after our vacation in Mary-land. Mom's got the housekeeping up to snuff, and she's got the garden under control. I've been sleeping on the bed next to her, and getting lots of scritches.

Today Mom re-ordered my busy-ness cards, and created some more postcards of her quilts that are currently on exhibit at the AQS shows. She's going to do some sewing, pay the Mr Bills, chat with friends and we'll both watch the tennis at Wimbledon.

It's a gorgeous sunny day and I'm enjoying it.

The Garden

Mom's garden really blossomed while we were in Mary-land. Here are a few pictures.

This is the shade garden.

This is the side garden we see from the kitchen window.

This is the garden in our front yard. Most folks around here have grass.  Not Mom. I think it's much prettier.

Mom has lettuce and a-roo-gala in window boxes on the side porch railings.

Of course, no view of our gardens would be complete without a photo of our front steps and the colorful plants Mom has arranged there, and you can see me, too.

TEN YEARS!

WOW! Time flies.

TEN years ago. Count 'em. TEN!

TEN years ago I was hit by a car and left for dead in the middle of a busy street in New Haven Connecticat.

TEN years ago, my leg was broken in two places and my leg was dislocated at the hip.

TEN years ago, Malcolm rescued me, and then hundreds of cat lovers around the world helped with green papers to pay the very big bill and put me back together.

Lookit those stitches.

I am still here. I can run and jump and do whatever I want, thanks in no small way to the cat lovers who helped save my life.

TEN years ago I could have gone to the Rainbow Bridge, but I am still here, enjoying the simple pleasure of being alive.

It has been TEN years, but I have not forgotten those of you who helped save my life.

THANK YOU, once again, from the bottom of my little furry heart.

A Good Vacation Is...

Mom says a good vacation always includes....


Good food. (This is Dim Sum at Tearrific)

Fine Art. (this is at Anne Marie Gardens)

And Fambly.

Check, check, and check.

We'll be home soon. (I'm really eager to get out of these traveling digs.)

More Bread, and Cake

Mom made six more loaves of bread this morning, for my Mary-land fambly.


and this is all that's left of the big cake she made yesterday.
Today we all went for Dim-Sum, but I didn't eat any of that.

My CatGal Pal Delilah

Delilah is the new cat in my Mary-land fambly. She is tiny and delicate and doesn't take any guff from anybody.  We got along right away.

She is the real queen of the house.
 
Isn't she a cutie-pie?
