New Year's Eve

In case you all needed proof that I do use BOTH of my kitty condos, here it is. I usually sit here to watch the start of the day. In winter it is the coldest room in the house, but Mom says when the weather warms up it will be a very nice place to hang out.

Happy New Year's Eve to most of my friends, Happy New Year to my Kiwi and Aussie pals.

Tattle Tail Tuesday

There wasn't any snow on Christymas. It all melted. There's only one small pile of snow in the front where Mom piled it when she shoveled the driveway on Turkey day.

It can be warm with snow, and cold without snow. Snow has nothing to do with whether it is cold or not. However, we have a very cold week coming up. The temperature isn't supposed to get above freezing until Saturday, and there is no snow in the forecast until Sunday at the earliest.

Millie Napping

My absolute number one favorite napping spot is next to Mom when she's sitting on the couch. I squeeze into the spot between Mom and the arm of the couch, no matter how small the space is.

If Mom's not home, or if she's busy in the sewing studio or in the kitchen, I find another cozy spot. Since we lost electricity on Turkey Day I haven't napped in my heated cat cup. Lately I haven't even slept on the soft fleece pillow near the heating vent in the dining room.  Nope, I've rediscovered this doughnut shaped cushion Monty's MomBean made for me a long time ago. Mom's put it under the TV console. I can keep an eye on everything from here.

Farewell, Derby

I'm really bummed. Derby, one of my oldest furriends, has gone to the Bridge. I'm gonna miss him.

Sunny Snoozy Saturday

It is a beautiful day today. Sunny, and perfect for snoozing in my kitty condo here in the sewing studio. I hope you are all having a good day today.

Merry Christymas!

Mom and I want to wish all our friends, furry and otherwise, a very Merry Christmas!

I have been tracking Santa all day, and he is furry close to my house!
OK, he's not THAT close, but he's coming, I know. Mom says he will come and go in the blink of an eye, so I have to keep sharp. I wanna see the guy.

Merry Christymas! I hope you all have a great day with all those you love and who love you too!

Christmas Eve

I'm resting up now, because I'm going to be awake all night, waiting for Santy Claws. I'll be tracking him on the way here. 

You can too:

Merry Christmas Eve!

Tuxie Tuesday

Gosh, I love scritches.

Mom tells me I should thank the Cincy Bengals. Because of them my pals, the guys named Pat, can play all their playoff games at Razor Field.  W00t!

Millie Monday

A friend of Mom's came over yesterday and gave Mom a Christymas present. I had fun with the wrapping paper.  Christymas is coming soon. There is a big ham in the coldbox, ready for the big day. Mom has planned the menu. Cream of Bell Pepper soup, Baked Ham with Apricot Glaze, Scalloped Potatoes and Vegies, Green Beans (yuk) or Broccoli (double yuk). For dessert, Mom will make
Crème brûlée.

As long as I have my stinky goodness I am happy.

Omigosh Saturday

After Mom and I moved out of our old house, Mom happened to drive by the old place and saw the lord of land had put the house up for sale!!! Mom was furry surprised. She talked to the old neighbor (idjit) upstairs and he said the lord of land did not expect the house would sell before springtime.  Mom knew that no matter when it sold, they would have to implement the M-word themselves.

So you can imagine Mom's surprise when she drove by this morning and saw a "Sale Pending" on the old place.

I have to say, I am VERY HAPPY we have our own house now. I love it, and Mom and I like this place a lot more than the old place. Naturally Mom will be curious to see what happens to the place.

Me, not so much.

Sitting Pretty

Mom took this picture of me because it is something she has never seen before: me at the very top of my kitty condo.  I love this spot because I can see the whole neighborhood from here.

A Day's Work

Every morning after I have my foods, I go sit on the kitty condo and give myself a little bath. Then I survey my territory. When I am done that, I go over and sit next to Mom while she tries to eat her breakfast.
 This morning she was trying to do stuff on the computer at the same time.

Sometimes Mom gets her priorities wrong and I have to do a little training session.

When I was all done I went to sit on the other kitty condo at the front of the house to check out the other end of my territory.

It's all in a day's work.

Tuxie Tuesday

I really love my new scratcher. I use it every day and Mom is happy.

However, I am not sure about this photo. Mom gave me some really good 'Nip and I am afraid I lost control. I confess I rolled in the stuff. Mom laughed and took pictures.

I don't remember any of it.

Millie Monday

I like to sit on this stool in the morning to check out what's going on. From here I can see inside the house, and the neighborhood outside too.

I really like it here.

Easy Like Sunday

Dear Mom,

There is no fabric you can wash, that I cannot find to make into a nest and fur up.  Look at it this way, I get to do a preliminary QA check on whatever it is you're making.

Sunny Saturday

Mom's in the kitchen baking. She's going to give the hot-as-hell-box a workout. She has bread rising right now, and she's going to make chocolate biscotti later. I may love BEEF, but whatever Mom cooks smells good.

Will There Be When?

Ayla, Iza and Marley (and TBT) keep asking if there will be a When When Contest this year.

Let's look outside and see...

this is the view outside the front of the house. (All these photos were taken this morning)

this is looking out from Mom's studio.

and this is looking out the back door, to our little shed.

It sure does look like it!

Soft Pillow Thursday

Mom pulled this soft fleece pillow out of storage on Turkey day when we lost electricity and heat.

Mom knew it would keep me warm.

I have been sleeping on it every night since.

It doesn't hurt that Mom put it next to one of the heating vents.

Wordless Wednesday

Hey, what can I say? It's a nice soft spot.

Christymas Decorations

Mom doesn't go over the top with decorations, but I think our house looks very nice.

Mom says we are supposed to have more snow and nasty weather tomorrow.  Winter hasn't even started yet and it's already a doozy.

Monday, December 08, 2014

Millie Monday

Mom was working in her sewing studio and I did some investigating. I am sure all my four legged friends will have no trouble figuring out where I am in this photo.  The beans may have a harder time.

Mom and I decorated the Christymas tree last night. I'll show photos of it tomorrow. We still have more decorating to do, but Mom did all the boring housekeeping stuff yesterday, and didn't take any pictures.

Christymas is Coming!

Lookit!  Mom got the Christymas tree out of the shed. She promises to decorate it later.

Snishy Saturday

We got more snow last night. Then it rained, so it's snishy out there. Mom will have to go out and clear the driveway so it won't freeze into ice when it gets cold later tonight.

Mom and I are pretty sure this will be the view where the When When Contest will take place, but there's still a lot of time before that happens.

For Ayla, Iza and Marley, who asked yesterday. The little red strip around one of the chairs is a piece of velcro. It used to hold some extension cords together, but Mom took it off and stuck it on the chair so she wouldn't lose it. I guess she forgot about it.

As for the the sign on the bookcase, it is a quote from Dr Seuss that Mom likes.
"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

Millie on Patrol

Every morning I survey my territory.

I make sure everything is in order.

I am alert to everything around me.

I see it all.

Have a happy Friday, friends!

Mom got me something. She says it's partly for Christymas, but mostly it's to make me feel better about being shoved in a closet bathroom over Turkey Day.

It's a scratcher. It's got some 'Nip in it and I think it's pretty interesting. Of course I don't do anything on it when Mom is hovering nearby with the flashy box.

Tuxie Tuesday on the Table

Mom still has to put the serving dishes away. Since we didn't eat the big bird here we never used those dishes. Mom's got the rest of the place back up to snuff. She has some things to go in "the shed" which I am told is a replacement for "the basement." Except it's a little building behind the house and right now the path to it is covered in snow. Mom says when that stuff goes back in, the Christymas stuff will start coming out.

Yes. I am enjoying napping on my own couch.
