A New Quilt

Mom has a new quilt that she bought from one of her quilting idols, Wanda Hanson.  Naturally I had to examine it very thoroughly.

Anyway, when I'm finished, I'm gonna nap. Mom will be watching Wimbledon.

It's gonna be a great day, I can tell.

Truthful Thursday

Thank you all for remembering my Rescue-versary. Mom and I knew the day was coming, but we both forgot to post about it.  I am so happy it turned out to be a Very Good Day because it could so easily have been my Very Last Day.  The stars were all aligned that day. Malcolm rescued me, and everybody helped.  There are lots of Good Folks in the world.

Getting back to Monday's post about Mom making the bed, Mom likes to make the bed for a couple of reasons. First, when you come to visit, you see the bed from the door when you enter. Mom doesn't want visitors to see a sloppy bed.  Secondly, Mom likes the blankets a certain way when she gets into bed at night, and if it hasn't been made in the morning, Mom has to do a lot of rearranging, and she doesn't like that. But the biggest reason Mom likes to make the bed is to show off the fantastic quilt her friends Julie and Chris made for her with her leftover bits from other quilts.

Tuxie Tuesday

I just love napping on Mom's quilts, and in her piles of fabric.

Mom, you do not need to make the bed.
You do not need to make the bed.
You do not need to make the bed...

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Mom taught her class yesterday. Everything is back to normal. The quilts are back where they belong, it is nice and sunny out. Mom and I are going to chillax.

Tomorrow "The Championships" start at the big W, Wimbledon. It'll be all-tennis, all the time for the next couple of weeks, but for now, it's nice and easy.

Formerly Feral Friday

Only if you are formerly feral, do you truly understand the benefits of a good home, a cat hammock near a window, air-colditioning and a great Mom.

I am a very lucky girlcat.

Too Hot Thursday

So Mom came home from her day hunting gig last night with PlusOne and one of his friends. The brought the air cold-itioners up from the basement and put them in windows in Mom's room and the living room.  I had to check everything out.

While Mom was in the kitchen making her dinner, I was hanging out in the nice cool bedroom.

Duh! Where else would I be?

Tell-All Tuesday

Last Saturday morning Mom listed some stuff she wanted to get rid of on the local freecycle website. But the stuff never appeared until Monday afternoon.  Mom got home to dozens of emails from people wanting the stuff. Mom contacted the first person to respond to each item, and within two hours, all the stuff except one thing was gone.  Mom also made sure to tell the freecycle folks the items had been TAKEN except that notice hasn't been put up yet so Mom is getting more and more emails... "Is the bike rack still available?" "Has anybody picked up the crock pot?" blah blah.

Then Mom got a call from her dad. He is 80 years old, and was calling from the hospital. Mom and her dad spent the day together yesterday. They had a nice time.  Anyway, he had cut himself on his table saw. He is OK, he will get better. (actually it is not okay, but Mom wouldn't talk about it). Mom said all the werds on the bad werds list after she hung up. Over and over again. I do not know what all this has to do with "safety" but she was pretty stoked.  So make sure your beans don't do anything stupid with sharp tools.

Anyway, all this excitement is why I haven't got a cute picture of me to post today.

Le Weekend

 Mom spent the day here yesterday. She had a good time.

Me?  I spent the day in the plum wing chair which Mom covered with a quilt.

I had a good time too.

What did you do over the weekend?

Strenuous Saturday

 Oh, there is so much work to be done on Saturdays.  
Mom has to put the sheets in the washing monster.  Then she has to put CLEAN sheets back on the bed.

Naturally, I have to snoopervise. 
As you can see, Mom needs my help every step of the way.
Doing all that work builds up quite an appetite.

Now Kitties, I am very sorry to have not blogged the last couple of days. It is all Mom's fault.  On Friday, she was so "bizzy" she forgot!  Yesterday she was on the computer practically all day, so you'd think I could get a chance to blog.  Oh no, she was doing something important.  (She thinks she's getting too fat so she signed up for WW online.) 

I think she wanted to keep it a secret.

Truthful Thursday

 Where am I?
 Not on the nice wing chair.

I'm not in my cat hammock.

I'm on Mom's quilting fabric in the sewing room.


Happy Birthday Pip-pay!

Tuxie Tuesday

Did you see the end of the match between Rafa and Novak?  If you did, you were luckier than we were. It was NOT on TV here in the USA, so Mom was listening on the radio on the computer!!! She was getting ready to go day hunting, so she was listening while she had the mouth hummer going.

Beans are weird, what can I say?

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

Mom was bummed that rain stopped the Men's final at Roland Garros yesterday. It's being played this morning, but it's not on TV, so Mom is trying to listen on the computer.  We're rooting for Raffa, but Novak is playing very well. It will be a good match no matter what.

Otherwise, it's life as usual here in New Hampster.

Sunny Sunday

While we had the cooler weather, Mom put a quilt over the wing chair so it would be nice and warm for me.  But this morning, Mom pulled the quilt up because she said it was too nice and warm and sunny for me to spend the day in the dark.

 She's probably right, but I was still a bit annoyed when she did it, as you can see.

Silly Saturday

Mom thinks she's gonna relax this weekend.

Yeah, that's what I think!

Friday, June 08, 2012

Finally Finally

Mom has finally finished rereading all the Harry Potter books. Now she's looking forward to being able to sleep late over the weekend.

It isn't going to happen.  The finals of the French Open tennis are this weekend, as well as the last race of the Triple Crown.  And Mom's expecting an order of quilting fabric, so she's going to want to sew.

But the real problem is that while she's been reading and sewing, she's been ignoring the housework.  I don't think she's washed the dishes for a whole week.

As usual, she'll do her running around, and I will watch, and nap.

Happy Birthday Monty Q

Happy birthday to my sweetie, Monty Q!

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday dearest Monty!
Happy Birthday to you!

Monty, you should teleport to my house to celebrate. It's a lot quieter than at your house, we can get some privacy, and with this cool rainy weather, I could use some warmth!

Millie Monday Monday

Yesterday, I was napping, and Mom was doing what Mom does on the weekend. Then all of a sudden, I looked up from my napping spot and saw her in bed, sleeping.

In her pajamas.

At three o'clock in the afternoon.

I mean, I know it's been raining and the weather's been cold and crappy, but seriously...

Mom. Napping. In the middle of the day...*

Holy carp!  Maybe there's hope for her after all!!

*Mom's fine. She's just been staying up too late reading and watching tv.

Smart Saturday

Mom needs me. I help her get ready to go day hunting.
Here's proof.

Friday, June 01, 2012

Finally Friday

Mom has been re-reading all the Harry Potter books. She's now halfway through the sixth one, and I'll bet she finishes it before the weekend is over.  Of course, she's been watching the tennis in Paris France, so you never know. It's supposed to be rainy all weekend, so I know I'll be getting lots of scritches.

Of course, I'll be doing a lot of this too.

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