Yippeee Friday

Yep we have made it to the weekend. Stouper Bowl weekend. I will be dropping by Gracie's party for a bit, but mum says she will be just watching the game. No multi-tasking and being on the puter at the same time. She wants to really watch the game cuz she thinks it will be a good game.
The mum day yesterday was nice. Firsted, mum actually slept in! She didn't get out of the sleepy spot until after 8 AM. Then she sat around in her jammies reading the paper and doing a few things on the puter, had breakfast and THEN actually got dressed.

Then she was gone for a little bit, said she went looking for a thingy that will make our water softer. What? Our water is soft, unless you freeze it, then it is hard. Mum says that isn't what hard water is, hard water has more minerals in it. Sure OK, whatever mum.

Also she went and found a new machine to wash our dishes, but it has to get here and then be installed.

Alert for next weekend February 12 -15

To all of you who have birdies outside your windows, and who doesn't. Next weekend is the Great Backyard Bird Count.
All they ask for is at least 15 minutes of watching and counting the fevvers of wherever you are. Home, work, school. They use this to see where birdies are and how their habitats and habits are changing. The more data the better the study.

Mum and I did this for the first time in 2007, and then we also got hooked up with Project Feeder Watch, which we now do every weekend, all winter long. But for Feeder Watch we just report on what is in our yard, not what mum sees all over the place. William got me started on this back in 2007, thanks William, mum and I enjoy this.

I hope that more kitties and their beans will join in.

Mum also worked on the blankie, me I attacked the yarn!
Happy Weekend.

It sounds like you and your mom had a great mom day yesterday!

And the bird thing sounds cool - we have seen it but didn't quite follow what it is (mom thought it was for longer and only at home).

We will be at Gracie's party too - we think it will be very fun!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Maximus Spittimus requests that I ask you why you like anything with an odd shaped ball?

I have been instructing him that football is with a round ball.

Not that he won't chase an odd shaped ball across the TV screen of course...

We are going to Gracie's party. Mum counted 19 fev-vers on our feeders today all at the same time. We are sad because Mr. Hawk caught Mr. Woodpecker yesterday.

Maybe we'll sneak over to Gracies too. Mom & Dad are going to a neighbors for an enchilada & football party. They'll never miss us.
ps: Thanks for being a voice of reason about Scooby. You comment made mom sit back & take a breath and not go off the deep end. :)

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

It will be a great football watching day tomorrow for sure! It will be especially great if the team I want to win does!
I bet you have lots of fun playing with yarn while your mom is working on the blanket. Does this make her job a little harder?
See you tomorrow for the big game!
