What I Did Yesterday

This is the last scene from the final season of Downton Abbey. Yup!

One of Mom's coworkers got it this week and lent it to her. After Mom did her errands and put a big slab of BEEF in the crooked pot she put a dvd in the box and turned it on. 

Nine hours later she had watched the whole thing (we started at episode five).

And now she knows the ending and she can't say anything to anybody!!!

Feline Friday

I love napping in this spot.

Mom likes it because she can take pictures of me here. It's hard for her when I decide to nap behind the couch.

Oh well.

I have found a new place to nap.

It's this nice chair at the far end of the living room.

I was hoping to keep it secret from Mom.

Spiffy Sunday

Why this photo of my licking my mouth is so stupid looking I do not know.

Except that I'm watching my favoritest tennis player of all time, Roger Federer, win his match at the Australian Open.

AND, we did not get any snow! Woo Hoo!!!  It is so nice NOT to have to watch Mom worry about too much snow on the roof, shoveling the driveway or having to drive in the damn stuff.

I think I'm going to go have a nap.

Snow-less Saturday

Whenever you hear "snow" on the news, you think of me in New Hampster, getting dumped on with snow. Naturally I don't give a darn because I don't have to shovel the stuff or drive in it or any of those things. (Actually the smartest thing to do in a snowstorm is stay home.) And you often get to see a snow map of New England showing how much snow we're gonna get, and it's always taller than me.

Not this time.

This time we aren't getting any snow. Nope. None. Zero. Nada. Zilch.

Ha. Ha. Ha.

I'm going to enjoy this.

Tuxie Tuesday with Tongue

Geez Mom, today's blog post title sure does sound...

I've been doing a lot of this lately.

Starting tonight Mom will be watching the tennis in Oz.

Mom finished the bird quilt, thank goodness.  Now I hope she won't "forget" to help me blog more often.

Mom is still making those darn birds for her bird quilt, but she's almost finished, so I should be able to get back blogging more regularly.

In the meantime I get scritches whenever I can, even while Mom eats her dinner.

Thursday Truth

Lookit! Real live dead beef.  Proof positive (if I needed any) that my Mom loves me.

Wordy Wednesday

I'm fine. Mom's been bizzy making birds for a quilt. She's been going hog wild, making birds every night after day hunting. You can go over and see. Birds birds birds. It's pretty crazy.

The heating monster is fine. It's the oil tank that has problems. The heating monster v-e-t was over for a third time this past weekend and figured out the problem was water in the bottom of the tank. It would get in the pipe and freeze, so the heating monster starved.  We think it might be fixed now, but there may be some repairs in the future. So every night Mom comes home hoping the house is warm. So far so good, paws crossed.

We watched the Parade on New Year's Day. This was our favorite float. Mom likes dragons.

The weather finally got cold here in New Hampster. It is 12F (-11C) right now, and that's cold. We are supposed to have a couple of sunny days coming up with the temps above freezing. The nights will be very cold, but there is no "measureable" snow in the forecast. Works for us.

All the garden places are sending Mom catalogs. I think it's pretty funny, but I'm sure she'll be poring over them when she's done making birds. In the meantime the only green things growing here are her Amaryllis bulbs.  This one is just starting to open up.

I'll try to make sure Mom helps me blog more often than I have been lately.

Mom got up Saturday and cleaned the whole house like a crazy lady. She literally dragged the rug sucking monster around Every Single Room. Then she washed the pillow in my tent.

So I had to find another place to nap.

Wasn't hard.
