When life gets you down, a cat can pick you up! - Anonymous
We kitties are good for your health! Here I was posing in a cute way to cheer up mum. This was taken a while back when she needed cheering. She was quite cheerful this weekend.
I think spring has decided to arrive. We actually have flowers! The crocus flowers have bloomed, on Saturday just one little flowere was open, on Sunday lots of them had opened, both purple and white.Mum worked on both Saturday and Sunday raking the front and side of the house, fluffing up the grass and pulling out some of the dead grass. Hopefully with some warm weather and a bit of rain it will be green soon.
Here is a picture of what snow we have left in the yard along the back of the house on Saturday morning. Mum won't rake the back yard until the snow is gone, maybe next weekend!
Below is what the same pile looked like on Sunday evening. You can see what disappeared during the day. It won't be quite so warm the next few days, but it may rain, which will help make the snow pile go away.
Mum rehung her sign about welcoming people to her garden, it fell off into the snow a few months ago. So to avoid losing it she had put it in a safe place in the metal monster room.
It was also nice enough over the weekend that while mum was working outside, in just tshirt and jeans, that she opened the window in her bedroom for me to sit in to get fresh air and watch the birdies. Ahhhh, it was so nice to sit and enjoy the wonderful days we had. It was in the low 60's F (15C)! Lots of the other neighbors were out too working in their yards and all of the little sticky things were out running around and playing outside too. Mum even got the grill out and cooked dinner Sunday on the grill.
I hope that all of you had wonderful weekends too! BTW mum and company had the first every board meeting for the Cat Friends Helping Friends group. WooHoo, that means things are moving along. Hopefully it will be an official charity real soon. Don't forget about name the kittie contest for the new logo.
