ManCat Monday

He seems the incarnation of everything soft and silky and velvety...a dreamer whose philosophy is sleep and let sleep. - Saki
Must have been dreaming of my sweety Princess Mia. I has such a wonderful smile on my face. That is why Patches calls me Smiley Boy!

I had a nice visit from Scooby, Shaggy and Scout. They came over to hang out in the Fevver Cafe. They got here after lunch time so they missed the visit of Mr Hawk. Mr Hawk sat in the crabby apple tree, then moved to the back fence trellis. Then he moved to the power line, then the neighbors tree for a furry long time. As long as he was around, all of the little fevvers did not come out to eat.
It was interesting as Mr Hawk had his fevvers poofed and spread out. Not sure why, but it has been a warmer, foggy day here. The snow is melting, so maybe he was trying to dry his fevvers off.

My little special bird wasn't around today, at least not that we saw it. Mum is pretty certain that it is just a goldfinch that is an albino. Her birdie book is the birds of North America and she looks at all the pictures, regardless of where in the country they normally belong. Just in case one got lost and is the wrong part of the country.

So we didn't have a lot of birdies to watch on Sunday, so we watched the snow melt and drip off of the roof. If you biggify the pictures, you can see the water drops makes their splooches!
Mum says she finallly feels really over her cold. She has been sleeping well and not being all sneezy and blowing the past few days. But she is bummed as she will have to work all five days this week! With the holidays and vacation she hasn't worked a full week since before Thanksgiving!

I have been tagged for some meme's. I will get to those in a few days!

I do wish the hawks around here would pose so nicely! I vote that he was drying his feathers. Mom is pretty sure your Goldfinch is a Goldfinch, but why the color? I fear the hawk is stalking the finches.

I'm glad your Mum is finally feeling better. Too bad she has to work all week. Sunny's Daddy was complaining about the same thing. I don't blame them at all.

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

We had a good time Derby! You have such cute little fevvers that visit your feeder!
That Mr. Hawk looks vishus in every picture we see. He must kind of be like the Mafia in your neighborhood to the other birds.

What a wonderful smile!

Your hawk sure has some pretty feathers on him--all poofed out they look like a cape! I'm glad he didn't get any snacks while visiting.

Derby, it's all melty here today too! We had rain today but they are talking white stuff later.

The Crew said...

You really are smiling Derby. That MUST mean you're thinking about Mia!

That's some huge hawk there. We don't see any of those in our yard, just regular sized fevvers

Sorry we haven't been around, its hard to visit when we are at the mountain house. That hawk is amazing! The only reason Mom isn't working all week too is we had to stay an extra day at the mountain house because of weather....she was secretly happy.
