Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday with Me, Virginger.

I had lots of snoopervising to do this past weekend and I did it on my own. Those mancats were off napping!

 No mancats hanging out in the window, just me and mum outside and working!
 First she assembled her little cart for toting things around the yard. Big enough for what she needs and it is small enuf to store in the metal monster room without taking up a huge space.
 Then she starting digging away the dirt from near the front faucet. We have that big round stone slab and mum wanted it to sit even with or just below the porch slab.
 Dig she did, put down weed barrier, put the round stone down and then added lots of little rocks. Those bags are heavy so that little carry thing came in handy.

 Front all done and it the hose leaks, then the rocks get wet, but no mud to make a mess.
 The off to the back to do that one, but mum says she ran out of rocks and will need a couple more bags.
 But enuf done to move the hose back, the extra rock will go in front.
Then we finally have flowers and lots of them! This first one is in the back and the first daff to open in the back yard.
 Then in the front, lots of daffs plus the crocus are still blooming.

 The little yellow things look like daffs but they are only a few inches high, so really tiny daffs!
Here is the biggest clump of daffs in the front. Mum isn't sure if these are old ones that didn't get dug up, or if they are new ones she planted.

Plus the four-sith-ia is finally starting to bloom. Now mum says she really thinks it is spring once this plant blooms.

Bizzy week here, more to do in the next week. See you then. Love, Virginger.

ManCat Monday

Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well. - Missy Dizick

We hopes everyone had a marvelous Easter weekend. We did, as on Sunday we got a super treat.
See how warms it got?! Mum opened all sorts ot windows, including the big windows that go to the floor! They were open all afternoon.

We enjoyed it so much and so did mum. Smelling all the fresh airs, listening to fevvers singing like crazy. They are out and looking for love! Soon we will have baby fevvers.

We hope you have a good week.

Happy Easter


Don't put all of your eggs in one basket

Walk softly and carry a big carrot

Everyone needs a friend who is all ears

There's no such thing as too much candy

All work and no play can make you a basket case

A cute little tail attracts a lot of attention

Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day

Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits

Some body parts should be floppy

Keep your paws off other people's jellybeans

Good things come in small sugarcoated packages

The grass is always greener in someone else's basket

An Easter bonnet can tame even the wildest hare

To show your true colors you have to come out of your shell

The best things in life are still sweet and gooey

Happy Easter from Derby, Ducky, Mum

HiYa, Ducky here.

Well, mum says she has work to do, but sure isn't getting going on it today. Says she has to get motivated. Wonder what store sells that!

She did get enough motivated to put out the hummer feeder this morning. She made up the sugar water last night and has a good supply to start the season.

Mum told us we need to watch now for the hummers to show up. It will be soon. So Derby took over part of the tower.

  I sat on the table for a bit, then move into the little house on the tower to watch. 
Plus I love to smell mum's jacket when she has been outside. All sorts of neat smells.

Happy Caturday, Happy Easter Eve and all.

Mum says she has found a bit of motivation, so guess she will go do her chores.

Happy weekend.

Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger.

Welcome my friends to the winter that never ends! Yes, we got a little bit of snow this past week. The top picture is from the back on Monday evening.
 These next three are from Tuesday AM. You can just see my back sitting down below the fake gull! Yes it was cold out, but I am a hardy squillion who can take the cold.

But at least it wasn't cold enough to snow over the weekend when we got nearly 3 inches of rain! Man, if that had been snow, we probably still wouldn't be shoveled out!

 Like the boys showed on Caturday, we do have a few flowers. The older crocus are pushing up and blooming in the front bed through the old leaves.

 But here are a few new ones that mum planted, these are yellow. Mum even thinks some of our bulbs didn't get dug up with the destruction last fall, so some old and new daffs and tulips are up but not yet bloomed.
Ducky being my buddy and helping to snoopervise from inside. Love ya dude!

That is it for this week, see you soon. Love, Virginger.

ManCat Monday

Nobody can truly own a cat. - Old British Saying

Well we own mum! We continued to get on mum for stuff. Making sure she is getting her rest and such. She has to go back to day hunting today.

Mum finally settled down on Sunday to get some easy. She had been running around doing stuff before the rains started.
Derby settling down on the pod to nap and sort of keep an eye on mum.

Ducky to make sure mum got some rest so he sat on her for the longest time. Plus he got a chance to watch fevvers and the rain. Mum got a bit of a nap in.
Still sending healing purrs to Miss Lynn, she is doing good!

Happy week everyone.

Saturday, April 12, 2014


We got abandoned this week! Mum was gone for nearly three full days! We knew something was up when all sorts of extra litter boxes appeared and were all filled up and ready to use. The big bowls full of foods came out too.

This picture is from when she got back and filled up our new food bowls. Of course we had the big bowls of crunchies out while she was gone. We are happy she is home and we have been sitting on her or near her since she came back.
 So where did she run off to? Not to go racy but off to the Minni-soda state where Shaggy and Scout live but mum says she wasn't in their town. But a town that must be famous for sandwiches as it has mayo!

Oh mum says the town is noted for healthy stuff. Mum drove her furiend Miss Lynn there while she had her eye operated on and it went furry well. Mum got up super early on Tuesday AM and didn't get back until Thursday evening. She is/was tired and we have been purring on her and staying close. Plus she told us we had to purr lots while she was gone for Miss Lynn.
 Plus mum and Miss Lynn got a laugh on the book in the hotel they stayed in. Stuff to do listed a tour of the place and talked about the GONAD building. Ahem, gonads? Mum says it is really Gonda and now she and Miss Lynn get a laugh if they are in that building at the clinic.
 The only picture mum took, from their room across the street. Said she didn't have time to take pictures, bizzy caring for Miss Lynn after they operated on her, driving the car and all.
But when she got home, she found that flowers are starting to bloom. Maybe it really is spring.

So we are going to sit more on mum this weekend and soak up loves for her and purr for Miss Lynn to finish healing up and be well.

Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger.

Slowly making progress on spring. Mum did get some more raking done in the past week. Not quite done but making a lot of progress.

Mum did figure out what to do with her temperature sensor. She put it in a milk bottle!  She cut off the bottom, took fish line and taped it to the sensor and then the line is long enough to come out the top and then she put the cap back on to hold it. Then more fish line through the handle and hung it on the side of the grill. 
 So far as long as it doesn't get baked in the sun it seems to give good readings. If she is using the grill it doesn't make it read a funky hot temp. Mum may hang it somewhere else, but for now, this work.
