Feline Friday

First of all, a correction. Both the front porch, and the office, face East, not South.  Mom can't understand why I sit in the kitty condo in the morning instead of the front porch.

I do go on the front porch in the morning, I just don't STAY there.  Mom thinks that will change as we get closer to Summer and the weather warms up.

Mom got more plants yesterday. Her shade garden is coming along, and she is happy with it. This weekend marks the beginning of the garden season here in New Hampster. We shouldn't have any more frosts until September.

Thursday Thought

With a screened in porch that faces South, Mom thought I would like to be camped out there in the morning when it is sunny.

As you can see, I do not.

Maybe someday Mom will understand that Napping and Watching are two separate activities.

Tuxie Tuesday

None of Mom's quilts is done until I do my QA check.  It's a tough job, covering each quilt with my furs, but it has to be done. I also check for love, kindness, softness and cuddle-ability. Mom's quilts always pass.

A Garden Visitor

Mom said a chipmunk came to visit while she was working in the garden yesterday, but I was more excited to see a butterfly on the Azalea bushes.

Mom's watching tennis and sewing. I'm napping on my kitty condo. I hope you are having a nice day too.

Easy Like Sunday

You do not see this very often. Me, napping on Mom's bed. (You don't see Mom's bed unmade either, but that's another story.)

Mom got up yesterday, got dressed, cooked herself breakfast (don't worry about me, I -ALWAYS- get my foods first thing in the morning before Mom does anything else), and then went food hunting.

When she got back, she planted two big pots of plants that attract hummingbirds. (There is one fuchsia plant, two dragonwing begonias, two coleus plants and one ipo-something.) One is in the middle of the front garden, the other is near the side house, so I will be able to watch hummingbirds eat from the flowers.
After that, Mom went to the hardware store and bought bricks.  I kid you not.

Then she went BACK to the hardware store to buy a gas grill. Then she went to the food store again to buy some real life dead BEEF steak too cook on said grill. Did I get any?

I did not.

These are some of the reasons I did not post yesterday.

Fair warning: Today the tennis starts in Paris, at Roland Garros. It's going to be all tennis all the time here for the next couple of weeks.

Weasley Needs a New Home!

To all my furriends in the Cat Blogosphere, I need your help.  My Mom's quilting buddy, Teresa is implementing the M-word and her cat Weasley, can't go with her.

 He needs a new home near Ypsilanti Michigan. You can read about Weasley here. Can you help me spread the word?

Weasley is nine years old, and has been de-clawed. He is friendly and loves to nap and purr. If you know anybody who would like a lovable Ginger boy, please visit Teresa's blog.


Weasley looks like a cute boy, and I hope he finds a good home.  Thank you for helping out.

Thursday Things

Mom was lazy last night. She came home from day hunting, lay down on the couch and yakked with her friend from Catifornia last night for almost an hour.  Then she made dinner and watched TV.

Tomorrow she says some guys are coming to work in the yard, getting the dirt ready for her "shade garden." Mom is very eager to get those plants in the ground. This weekend is the traditional "last frost date" and after this, pretty much everything can be planted.

Including my 'Nip!!

Where Am I Wednesday?

Can you see me?

Can you see me now?

I am on the porch on my new pink hammick. I like it better in the corner. I can see more stuff, so Mom moved it.

Where are you hiding out this Wednesday?

Tuxie Tuesday

It's raining today, so no garden work for Mom today. Last night she paid the Mr Bills and did some other chores. I did manage to pin her down to get some scritches. I plan on getting more of those tonight.

Millie Monday

It was sunny and warm yesterday, and Mom spent it doing stuff around the house.  First she made her lunches for the week, Then she did stuff around the house.

She replaced the screen on the porch door. It is special "cat proof" screen. Even if I were to climb on it, I can't rip it, so it keeps me safe. Mom also took down the planter box (which was falling apart) and replaced the hummingbird feeder, which was broken.

The Calla Lily is up on a stand where I can't reach it (and I'm not interested in it anyway.) As you can see Mom also rearranged the porch furniture. Since I don't like it when she sits between me and the door, she moved my new cat hammick so I have a safe exit.

 Of course, that doesn't mean I'll use it.

Sore Sunday

When I said Mom was going to move rocks, I wasn't joking. Mom wants to put a "shade garden" along this wall of the house (that's her bedroom window.)

She thought there was nice dirt there, but she was wrong. She had to remove that plastic stuff under the old mulch, and the two big bins sitting on that pallet. The she had to move three big bunches of day-lilies that were growing there.

Mom can't plant her garden right up against the house, so she moved rocks. A landscaping company will be taking away the old mulch, tilling the ground underneath, and putting in several "yards" of good dirt.

THEN Mom can plant the special plants she bought for this space.

So, MOM is the one who is sore. Not me.

Busy Mom Saturday

Mom is going to get up early today and work in the garden. She is going to move some rocks. No, I do not get it either, but if I do not post now, I won't get a chance to post until Sunday.  Oh well. 

Anyway, this is a Calla Lilly Mom bought for the front porch.

It's kinda pretty, if I do say so myself.

Finally Friday

It's Friday.

Life is Good.

Truthful Thursday

I hacked up a hairball. It felt awful, but now I feel a little better. Mom has been giving me lots of scritches to help me feel better.

See the crate over on the left? Mom put a nice soft pillow on top of it, and then a little aff-ghan, and I like napping on it. 

See the little stuffed fox? I made Mom put him IN the crate after these pictures were taken.
