Then again, Mom discovered the Cooking Channel today...

A Little TOO Easy on Sunday..

I'm napping, no surprise there, but Mom has been taking it SO easy this Holiday weekend, that she forgot to help me post on my blog yesterday!

What's Mom been doing? Washing windows, watching the Tennis, a bit of sewing... you know, the usual junk!

Freaky Friday

I -can- fit under the bureau!


Can you find me? (tee hee!)

Thankful Thursday

When it's hot and sticky out, the best thing to do is find a cool place to nap.

I'm very thankful.

Almost Wordless Wednesday

I'm working here! Seriously. Mom is making a Gizzy quilt for a friend of mine, and it's my job to do the final Quality Assurance check.

It's gonna pass with flying colors!

Tuxie Tuesday

Oh oh! I hear the sound of my dragonfly toy! I hear it's wings fluttering!

Must. Go.

Must. Attack. Toy.

See ya!

Millie Monday

Mom -finally- planted my 'Nip yesterday. See? (Me neither, actually.)
She also planted all kinds of other stupid stuff, like Green Beans and her four different kinds of Basil, (Genovese, Thai, Purple Ruffled, San Remo). She put the Parsley bigger pots, and she also transplanted her tomato and pepper plants.I snoopervised, and because of the Tennis, I got lots of scritches too! Mom sat in her comfy chair, and I sat right next to her.

Happy Birthday ML!

Happy Birthday, ML! You are one of The Best Beans on the planet. Have a very Happy Birthday. Mom and I send you smootchies, purrs, hugs and kisses.

Silly Saturday

Did you think I was joking when I said I move whenever I see Mom coming with her little camera? Well, here is proof!
Mom has already planted some beans and lettuce and moved her red pepper and tomato seedlings to larger pots. She promises me that my 'Nip will get planted today, along with five different kinds of basil. I'm gonna hold her to it.

She's trying to get all her errands and cleaning stuff done today because tomorrow... Tennis!

Formerly Feral Friday

I dunno how it happened, but Mom's got a new Gig. She's still gonna be hunting at the same day hunting gig place, but she's not gonna be a slave to the servants any more. She's gonna be hunting some different stuff, and some of the same old stuff.

Oh-kay, Mom, whatever you say! As long as you keep me in 'Nip, stinky goodness, temptations, keep providing me nice cozy places to nap, good v-e-t care, give me scritches where and when I want them, I'm a happy cat.

A happy formerly feral cat.

Drat! She caught me! It's going to be sunny and warm here today. So Mom's got windows open. I'll be able to smell the smells and enjoy the warm sunshine!

To all those who asked yesterday, I do not let -anybody- pick me up under -any- circumstances. So I do -not- let Mom pick me up in that basket and carry me around.

Wet Wednesday

It's supposed to rain all day today. I'll find a nice warm place (or two or three) to nap. I haven't been posing for pictures much. Every time Mom sees me doing something cute, she goes to get the camera, and I follow her.


She's been moving junk around again.

Well, maybe not.

Blue Night

There are lots of things I. Do. Not. Like. Among them are sirens and flashing lights. So last night, when four police cars and one fire truck parked outside our house with lights flashing I did not hesitate. I ran out of Mom's room in my best Thundering Herd of Elephants manner. So what if Mom was in the way.

Turns out some driver had hit the car that is always parked out front. (Now, Mom says that anybody who leaves their car parked on this busy street should know better. You leave a car parked on this street, and it's gonna get hit. Just a matter of time.)
The car that was hit got moved. Its front end was up on the sidewalk, and the back end was pushed over into the middle of the street, practically.

I think it's amazing how many beans can materialize out of nowhere, getting up at midnight to stand around in their pajamas, watching.

Millie & Mim-may Monday

Mom's back at the silly stuff. She moved the big computer into the old sewing room, and took this stuff out of the closet. Mim-may, it's all yours if you come and get it.

About the 'Nip situation... Mom says there WILL be 'Nip, and since she gives me everything a cat could want, I have to believe her. She says there will also be beans, snap peas, tomatoes and peppers.

In theory, I might add. One of her favorite lines is:

"In Theory, theory and practice are the same.
In Practice, they are different."

ain't that the truth!

That Time of Year Again

This is the Roo-Gala that Mom has growing on the porch. (She says it's yummy. I tried some ... Blech!)You'd think that was plenty for your average bean, but No-o-oh! It's the time of year that Mom goes out to buy dirt and then put stupid green Herbies in it. There's two kinds of Thyme (time?) some Mint, Basil, Oregano, some Sage and Rosemary and Chives. Here's some Parsley.
Here's the best bit. Every year Mom puts flowering plants in pots on the porch railing

You know how Mom says her favorite color isn't pink? Well, check this out.

I think I offended my Mom yesterday, when I said she wasn't much of a geek. Here's proof:(Personally, I don't know what the big fuss is about.)

She said I should be made to eat some crow!

I don't think so!

Friday, May 14, 2010

Follow Me Friday!

You all know Mom's some kind of geek. She's good, apparently, but she can be kind of lazy.

(You know, like a cat can be kind of lazy. KIND OF. I don't consider cats lazy, Dogs maybe, but not cats.)

Anyway... I finally convinced her to add a "subscribe" widget to my blog. It's over there on the right. This means you can sign up and whenever I update my blog, you can get notified. If you have a blog reader, you can read all your favorite blogs from one place. I found this nifty you tube video if you need what I like to call "destructions." The guy talks really fast in this really short video, but he makes it all pretty simple. So even my Mom, the so-called "uber geek" can understand it.

Thursday Thoughts

I've got my Mom pretty well trained. She comes when I call her. She feeds me when I want, she gives me treats when I ask, and we play together.


I'm so glad I'm a cat!

Cat Quest Toy

I was asked to test this Cat Quest toy, and write a review about it. (They sent it to me for free. Mom says I am supposed to say that.)It turns out this is REALLY COOL! I love it! Mom presses the button and the wings flap! Mom says it works on batteries, and they come with it. (I didn't see any batteries)I get to chase the bug and try to stop the wings from flapping!
It's a lot of fun. I like it a lot. It's my new favorite toy.

(Mom's kinda amazed. She didn't think I would like it, but, my Bast, was she wrong! It didn't cost very many green papers)

Gotta go chase that bug... You guys should try it!

Millie Monday

I got this wicked cool toy in the mail on Saturday, and I love it, but silly Mom wanted to go to bed early, so I can't tell you all about it today. It will have to wait until tomorrow.

Happy Mother's Day!

I helped Mom make some Red Velvet Cupcakes today as a Mother's Day present to all Moms. If you want one, all you have to do is show up at my house.

We have more.

Happy Mother's Day!

Soggy Saturday

It's raining outside. Mom has turned off the heating monster for the summer, so it's a little cool. I'm nice and cozy in my cat cup.

So what?

Friday, May 07, 2010

Formerly Feral Friday

I have all kinds of places to nap, and I like to try new things. It's nice being -formerly- feral!

Thursday, May 06, 2010

Thursday Thoughts

What I want... to be allowed to nap in peace.

What Mom wants... I wonder if I can nap on that too?

Wacky Wednesday

I did not fall off the table yesterday. What kind of a self-respecting cat do you think I am, anyway?

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Note To Self,


When Mom has a pile of fabric on the slippery drafting table she keeps at an angledon't think it's going to stay there if you jump on it from the bureau.or you either, for that matter.

Gravity is The Law.

Millie Monday

Whoa? Did I hear the sound of a can of Stinky Goodness being opened?

Sunny Sunday

Do you see what I see?

Probably not.

Have a great day anyway!

May Day Mayday!

I'm enjoying myself this morning, hanging out on the bed, watching the birds outside, and Mom rush around inside. This afternoon I'm going to visit Derby and celebrate Derby Day. We'll watch the horsies run around and celebrate Derby's birthday and gotcha day. Everybody is welcome.

Later tonight the Ninja Brigade will be here to move stuff around and celebrate Mr Karate's birthday. I'll be camping out under the bed.
