ManCat Monday

To you it may look like a beautiful new chair - to a cat it's one big scratch post. - Author Unknown

Happy Monday and welcome to July. We continue to have the hots. Not as hot as some of you, but for Whiskerconsin, it is hot enough. 

 Mum took a picture of the tempy thing in the sleepy room late Sunday afternoon. The top is inside the bottom is outside. Mum says it just jumped from 99 up to this in a couple of minutes, not likely accurate.
 This was pretty close to what the real temp was. And why was the other so high?
 The recorder thingy outside sits near the house and sometimes gets hit by the sun, then it reads really hot. So mum thinks she needs to get this lower to the ground, and hide it behind a plant so the sun won't hit it.
 Mum bought corn on the cob and cooked one ear tonight. I don't want the corn, I want that green stuff on the outside.
 Please let me paw some of it out, but no, mum wouldn't give me any of it and closed the top. But I am nothing but devious to get in.
 So I jump up and sit on the top, then when I jumped off the, the lid comes open. But before I could get in mum thwarted my efforts!
 She put this heavy thing on top and now, even if I jump up there, the top won't open.

So stay cool. I will keep trying to get inside the trash thing.

Sheesh, I just can't understand why we can't have the stuff they throw in the bin?!?!?! They don't want it anymore, so why can't we have it huh? Looks like we are going to have a cooler day with a bit of rain today. Feel free to send some of your hots our way :)xx

My gosh, that is way too hot. We never get that hot here thank goodness.

Your mom should have let you have the green corn cob cover, you need your ruffage.

Keep cool my friends.

I couldn't care less about the green stuff the corn on the cob comes in - I love the cob! With lots of butter!

Well, actually, I mostly like the butter.

Mommy says your hots are worse than ours! Sweet Pea loves to eat corn husks too, unfortunately they don't stay down for long...too tickly! They yak up beautifully.

That was mean of the Mom ta spoil yer new trick with the bin. Can you shove the heavy thing off the top?

That's way too hot for human or beast! Here in Pennsylvania, the local electric company had installed devices that would allow them to turn off the power in individual homes, and when the temp got over 100, people with those devices were pretty hot in more ways than one.

Fuzzy Tales mom Kim here....I can't find an email for you...but I do need glasses. LOL.

The knitting pattern is an easy baby blanket pattern:

Cast on 5 stitches
First row: Knit
Second and subsequent rows: k3, yo, knit to end

Knit for as long as you want, however big you want the blanket to be.

To decrease:
k2, k2 together, yo, k2 together, knit to end (do this for all rows)
Follow that until 7 stitches remain
Then, k2, k2 together, k2 together, knit to end (leaves only one stitch to knit)
Cast off

I think you should have gotten at least a taste of the leaves. Doesn't seem fair.

We didn't put the thermometer out this year. No use in knowing that the balcony is 120. (It bakes pretty much all day.)
