Thursday, Late Again!

 ::sigh:: Mum forgot again last evening to help with my post. She crawled off to her sleepy spot early and never even though of it. Even after I climbed all over her. What is a cat to do!

Well, I can have some nice long naps. I like being on the tower to nap during the summer. Plus you can see the wide open window behind me. The really hots seem to have gone but we still get some nice warmer days.

Mum has started on her newest crochet blankie. Nice colors for fall and nice colors to go with a ginger kittie! Mum says the color name is Cinnamon.

She finished on all the hats. You saw the kiddie sized  hats on Monday. Well, here are the bigger head hats. Mum dumped them out on the floor, then started to make piles of 5 to make them easy to count. Hmmm, 20 piles of 5, plus 1. Holy, smoley mum. That is one hundred and one hats! As you can see I was snoopervising the operation. That will make for a lot of warm heads this winter.

Oh and remember, cleaning is good for  us!

Mini-ManCat Monday

Slowly, with a look of intense concentration, he got up and advanced on me ... put out a front paw, and stroked my cheek as I used to stoke his chops. A human caress from a cat. I felt very meagre and ill-educated that I could not purr. - Sylvia Townsend Werner

Mum can't purr either, but she does snore sometimes! MOL. 

Me sitting on the back of mum's chair. Gotta keep an eye on her. You can see her shoulder here, she was still in her jammies at nearly lunch time the other day. 

 Mum worked on her crow-shay and says she is now done with making hats. The above pic shows the hats she made withe some of the odds and ends of her yarns. Plus some from of the extra stuff she got just to make hats. These are the kiddie size hats. Mum counted and there are 53 of these hats. She hasn't counted the adult hats yet. 

Feetsball Report

Yep, it is that time of the year again. Mum didn't watch all day, but she also watched the baseball game. 

The Pack -  PEEEE YOU! They lost bad, really stunk up the joint. Thank goodness they were playing in an outside stadium so the stink has somewhere to go. They were supposed to play inside but the game got moved cuz of the hurry-cane a few weeks ago. 

Heck the whole North division lost their first games yesterday. Gonna be a long year!

Have a good week everyone!

Caturday - Patriot Day

 Always Remember 

Never Forget

This is a little memorial not far from where we live. Replicas of the towers and a beam from one of the towers.

Mum said it was a scary and sad day.Lots of tears too. Sending comforting purrs to all who need them today.

Mo' Cats Day

 Back in the early days of the cats on the blogosphere some dude said there should be a no cats day. Pfft. At least that is what Derby said, not NO CATS but MO CATS. So today we have to have MO CATS on our innerwebs today. Mum looked it up and it started way back in 2009!

So lots of pics of me and Derby!

That is it for today gang. Derby gets the last laff!

Mini-ManCat Monday

Most people with cats, know they are being controlled. That's the horror of it...

I have been trying to mind meld mum. I sleep on top of her head. I drape myself across the top and put my face right on her face. Sometimes I even curl my tail back across her ears. I will control her. MOL!

 We had a beauty of a day on Sunday. Me and mum just chilled and enjoyed it.

Happy Monday everyone.

 HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday. Plus those of you who still have working beans they will get Monday off! More time for them to stay home and cater to your every need. 

Mum cooked! Since it isn't so hot anymore mum made herself some soup and cornbread. Yummy stuff she says. 

 Fine, you cook for yourself. Just don't forget to put out my steady supply of gooshy foods. My crunchies too!

So everyone have a safe weekend.

Puzzle Thursday

 Oh yeah, things have gotten super nice around here. Lots of open windows and just chilling for me and mum. Yesterday was ginger day too. Yeah, me and mum cellybrated. 

So nice if you look close you can see I am actually sitting in the window itself. Yeah, pick a spot and just hang out.

Later after lunch I decided to hang in the sun in the kitchen. Nice place to nap and mum actually got close enuf to get a shot without me waking up right away. Derby like to just stretch out on the table itself. 

Mum went back to the really old pics, back when I first moved in and found a pic of both me and Derbs hanging out in the kitchen with him spread out all over the table. It was our old table too.

So I haven't given you any puzzles in a few weeks so here we go. Some sun bathing pics of the two of us. 

Plus we made it to another new month!

Mini-ManCat Monday

When my cats aren't happy, I'm not happy. Not because I care about their mood but because I know they're just sitting there thinking up ways to get even. - Penny Ward Moser

Me and mum had a quiet weekend. She stayed home the entire weekend to stay out of the hots and humids. It is finally starting to get less humid and mum says we should be able to do open windows this week. Woohoo!

All nice and cool inside, I had fun playing with my new fevver toy. It is nice to have a cool house to hang out in the heat.

Mum worked on crowshay and reading her book which she stayed up late to finish the last little bit. Another day today she will start a new book!

Have a wonderful week everyone.

 HiYa Ducky here. The hots are still here. Mum has been out to get foods and more yarn yesterday early in the day before it got hot. She plans to stay home and stay inside until at least Monday. 

So we will watch baseball, probably racy cars too. Mum can crow-shay while that is going one. Plus she can read her book.

Another full bag of yarn, her full closet too. Plus two bags full of yarns that won't fit on the shelf. I think she needs help! Is there a 12 step program for yarn-a-holics?

Happy weekend all. Be safe.

Thursday Late Again

 Can't get good help these days. Can I hire a new typist for me? Mum totally forgot, saying she was focused on getting a van to go. Sheesh mum, you know you can't fix cars and such. Oh, wait she is saying Van Gogh. Now that is different! Good ol' Vincent!

Mum said it was really cool. She and her furiend liked it. Said the puter stuff they did showed lots of stuff morphing from one thing to another. Even portraits that blinked!

Mum took some pics and short moovies. She didn't want to do a lot of it as she doesn't like watching the world go by through a camera lens.

Once they were done they headed back out of downtown and back to the burbs for lunch. Then they both went off to shop. Mum bought more yarn! Yeah, I knows you get twitchy when the cupboards get low with yarns mum. Isn't it too hot to make blankies? She says yes, but the sale was too good to pass up. 

I will just nap!
