Resting Weekend

I WON the raffle for the Gizzy Quilt for Churchill from Darling Millie WooHOO. We raised $550 for Churchill. Details on Sunday for the raffle for the Meezers.
It has been nice and sunny this weekend. So lots of sun spots for me to nap in. Stretch too. Ahhhh.

The birdies are hungry little guys this winter. Mum came home with four bags of stuff for them as the cupboard was bare. Mum hopes this load will last through the rest of the winter season.
Plus you can see how much snow we have on the ground and the big pile outside the back door.
But they are saying more of this white stuff is going to come on Monday. Go away snow! We don't want you to visit anymore.

Mum is resting so much she wasn't going to fix dinner at home. But she and Miss Lynn went out and still had to cook their own food. Duh, why go out if you still have to cook?
They had all sort of stuff to put in the hot bubbling oil to cook them, then they eat them right away. But then there is nothing to bring home to the starving kittie! Fish, beefs, shrimps, chick-hen! Nothing for me!
Then for the last part they had fruits and such and put them in.....
Chocolate!!!! Mum says it was yummy. She is stuffed and won't need to eat for at least a day!

We're glad you got a break from snow and had some nice sun spots. We've been gettin' snow, then it melts, ('cept for the big pile out front), then we get more.
Wow, that's lotsa birdy food!! And that food your mum went out and ate looks yummy, she really shoulda figured out some way to bring some home for you!!

Oh Derby I bet you was pleased to see the sun. It is nice to see so many kitty friends beans looking after the birdies in that cold winter.

I guess we shouldn't complain that it is hot and muggy here huh?

Have a great week.

Fat Eric said...

Ooh, nice food! It makes me drool.

Congratulations on winning the Churchill Quilt, I am jealous!

My mum was out this morning stocking up on bird food too. although our birdies are not in the snow like yours. Ours are flying around tweeting a lot looking for places to nest, we think. We had two robins, a blackbird, sparrows, blue tits and pigeons in the garden this morning.

Gretchen said...

Wow, that is a lot of birdseed. She must have to work awfully hard to fee all those hungry little birds.

Your windowsills look a little wider than mine. I'm going to ask the Easter Bunny to bring me a window bed...thingy...I don't know what it's really called, but I want one.

Hope your snow goes away soon. We're tired of winter here, too.
