Millie Does Math

I  did Math with the kids. Can you see the math tiger next to me?

Math is cool, and Mom says math is important.

I had more fun playing in the box of blocks. 

I met the therapy dog, Elliot. Elliot doesn't usually like stuffed animals. (He's a woofie, that's why he doesn't know any better.) But Elliot couldn't stop kissing me, he liked me so much. Mrs B said I was lucky, and special.


I know I'm lucky, and I know I'm special, but jeez louize, I can live without being kissed (over and over again) by a woofie.


Hey Eliot, go kiss the kids.

No When When Contest This Year

This is what it looks like outside my house in New Hampster today, Saturday February 27th.  As you can all see, there is no snow.  OK, there is a tiny bit, but not enough to have a When When Contest.

Many of you are sorry, but Mom and I are not. It's not always fun to navigate through gigantic piles of snow, or to worry if there is too much on your roof.

Maybe next year!

PS I am still in Passa Dena, having fun with Mrs P's third grade students. I went to recess with them on Friday, and boy oh boy did I have fun. Running and climbing, chasing balls around in the warm California sunshine was great. Photos later (I hope.)

Freaky Friday!!

You are not going to believe this.

MOM went home to New Hampster.

And I stayed in sunny California to spend a week with Mrs P and her third grade students near Passa Dena.  

Mrs P and me at Nick's in Manhattan Beach CA
 Mrs P has been telling her students about me for years, so when she and Mom had dinner the other night with Mr Karate and Rubylocks, I thought it would be a good learning experience to spend a week with Mrs P and her third graders.

So here I am!

Lookit! I have a special bed at Mrs P's house, and I am sleeping under a Gizzy quilt that Mom made for Mrs P's cat Rusty. (Rusty is now at the Bridge.)

This is the quilt Mom made for Rusty, Mrs P's ginger boy. Can you find him?

I am sure we will all learn new things. Since Mom is going to be a Mim-may, I am going to have to get used to little sticky people. Mom says third graders aren't that little or sticky. Mrs P says her class has the highest math scores in the district. That sounds like a win-win proposition to me, so I'll be here for a few more days, and I'll fly home to New Hampster later.

And you know, I really like the SUNNY and WARM weather in California. 


Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get some sleeps. These kids are furry bizzy and I can't take as many naps as usual when I am in class with them.

Mom went to a Quilt show...

And she forgot to take me. I could say I was annoyed but I was fine with it. I needed to catch up on my naps.

It is warm and sunny here in the city of Angels and I have been napping in the sun. 

 Mom got to see a quilt made by one of her quilt heroes, Molly Upton so she was happy.

I Went to Disneyland!


OMG!! Mr Karate and Rubylocks brought Mom and me to Disneyland!  It was PAWESOME!


It is a beautiful place.


Here we are in front of the statue of Mr Disney himself. We had loads of fun. 


Here Mr Karate and I are trying to liberate the sword from the stone. I couldn't do it. 

Mom and I loved "It's A Small World" most of all. The building was so pretty. 


It was amazing. Mom was singing and smiling. I dunno when I ever saw her so silly. 


Mr Karate and Rubylocks were pretty happy too!


Oh geez, I had so much fun. Here I am with a statue of Dumbo. I saw the Milennium Falcon,


Almost got eaten by a snake, 

(That was not fun)


Watched THREE parades,

Met some really nice cast members (this is Justin who helped Mom buy this ...


Sweatshirt commemorating the 60th anniversary of Disneyland,

Went to see It's a small world (again!)


Had some really good food....
And watched some pretty freaking amazing fireworks. 

Mom said it was the second best day ever. (Cause nothing can top yesterday.)

The Big Surprise!

I was gonna keep this trip to the City of Angels a secret until I got home, but Mr Karate & Rubylocks had a special something something to give Mom. 


This is such big news I just had to spill the beans. 

Boy you shoulda heard Mom squee!

I'm gonna be an Auntie Cat!

Truthful Thursday

This is Mom's newest Amaryllis. It is really pretty. You may not believe it but I have no interest in it at all.

NH Primary Day

It snowed yesterday and last night. The result is a picture perfect day in New Hampster. Which is good, because there will be millions of pictures taken here today. It is the first in the nation primary here and Mom will be voting.

While I am not allowed to say for whom Mom will cast her vote, I can assure you she will NOT vote for the boorish, belligerent, bombastic bully.

Have a nice day, kitties. I shall spend it napping on one of my many favorite locations.

We're supposed to have more snow today and tonight.

That's February for you.

It snowed yesterday. We were only supposed to get a little bit, but we got about six inches of the heavy white stuff.

It sure is pretty.

This And That

Mom has got a lot of stuff up her sleeve. We are going to do a lot of traveling this year, to Mary-land, to Philly, and to the City of Angels. We're going to AQS shows in Syracuse and maybe Chattanooga. Mom's got a couple quilts in a very special exhibit at AQS Chattanooga (and also AQS Des Moines) this year, but that's all I can say right now. We might be going to Colorado too.

So Mom's been bizzy trying to get everything organized.

I'm fine. I've got lots of treats and plenty of cozy places to nap.

Hey Mom, where did you go? I like it when you sit next to me and give me scritches. Find a movie or something for us to watch together... Hey, you haven't watched all that extra stuff on the Downton Abbey DVD... put that in and come back!

thanky you Mom!
