Garden Thursday

Hi and welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Whoa, what a party! Sheesh, so many cats and becuz of the nasty weather, everyone was inside. I think the boy of the day is sleeping the party off today.

Today we are featuring the color green. Sort of between flowers, so just to cellybrate the greeness of summer.
 Future flowers in the bud stage for our day lilies out front.
 The four-sith-ia starting to fill in after mum cut it back a couple of months ago. She thinks she needs to neaten it up some.
 All shades of green in the back garden, dark green, medium green, lighter green. So even without flowers we have different things to look at.
 Plus the M&M's in all shades of green too. Nice to see, something sweet for mum to eat!
See you next week. Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Purrthday Party

The Party starts NOW!

Today is my purrthday. I am a whole 9 years old now. I still feel and sometimes act like a kitten. I love to play, pounce on my mousies and just enjoy life.

This is one of the firsted pictures mum took of me once she gotcha'd me. It is one of her favorites, shows off my purrty golden eyes and soft orinch fur.

Feel free to mingle with the gang and be sure to help yourself to the goodies on the buffay table, food, drinks and nip cake!

Thanks for stopping by and cellybrating with me!

ManCat Monday

Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains unawakened. - Anatole France

Mum's soul is awake, I knows she loves me furry lots and I loves her back. It is nice to just next to her and she just gently touches me. I purr. Life is good.
Not to worry on our water supply. They usually have things fixed in a few hours, mum says about 3, cuz they know people needs their waters!

 Mum saw this cute book at the library the other day when she was helping with the reading program. She looked through it quick, well actually she read the book. Seems the cat was getting into all sorts of stuff. She liked the name, it could be a cute name for a real cat.
Come on back on Wednesday, Party time! It is my purrthday, I will be 9 years old!

HiYa Ducky here. Another beauty-full day. Mum got up and opened all the windows wide open. Soft gentle breezes coming in.

Mum is watching horsies race in the early morning. She found that they had Royal Ascot on our moving picture box here. So we didn't see every day, we get to start our last few mornings watching Queen Lizzie come in on her carriage, then watch the horsies run. They sure do dress funny and fancy to go racing.

About our water issues, mum says we should explain. We get our water from our village, it gets piped in under the street, then it branches off into the houses. Well, what is under the street is at least 50 years old, so it breaks and needs to be fixed.

So when it happens, they first come and turn the water pressure down locally to reduce the stress on the break. Then they do come around and tell you they will be turning the water totally off. Now this week they turned down the so far it was effectively off. So when the guy came around to tell us it was going to be turned off, mum told him it was already off! He said they must have turned it down too much.

So then they bring in all sorts of big equipment, dig a hole in the ground, repair the main. Fill the hole back up with rock, then soon they will come back and fix the road surface. It happens and now that mum is home all the time, we notice it more.

I think I will just take it easy for a while and get some loves from mum whiles she sits.

Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Quiet around here, the hots are gone, so mum has been able to open up the windows for fresh air inside the house. Today may be hot, but back to nice weather on Friday.

Flowers are few, but mum did find some hiding by the side of the house near the kitch-hen windows. Siberian Irises.

 Mum got the grass all looking nice on Wednesday, but she really needs to get to some weeds and probably get some mulch to put down in a few places. Now would be a good time to do that while it isn't so hot!

That is all for now, Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Tuesday This and That

HiYa, Ducky here. It has been so nice around here. Nice enuf that as soon as mum gets up she opens all of the windows wide open.

I did sit on mum lots and she is feeling better, just needed a day or so of not standing and pounding on her feets.
We got a surprize this morning when mum went to turn on the water and then, NO WATER! Second time in just over two weeks this happened. Mum was not happy as she had to go out so was washing and doing her teeths with bottled water. She did well enuf at the eye doc, she sees OK.

More of the same for tomorrow.

ManCat Monday

An ordinary kitten will ask more questions than any five-year old. - Carl Van Vechten

Ordinary? We cats, and the kittens are not ordinary. Questions, you betcha, we have questions and most times you beans can't answer them.

So mum did her racy weekend and I thinks she overdid it. Remember mum, you are not that young and days of pounding up and down on pavement for three days will get to you. Mum was so bizzy she didn't even take pictures!
 This is an old pic. Mum says this is the top of where they line cars up and way back on the right hand side is a white banner. That is how far back it goes. Mum says about two tenths of a mile. Mum can't count how many times back and forth she went, well, all of her furiends walked.

  So I am sitting by mum, cuz she needs to go to bed and get all rested. I know the calendar is clear for tomorrow, so no getting up early for you then. We both can stay home and chill. You get some good sleeps you will feel all better.

Oh Yeah, it is box day too.

HiYa Ducky here. YAWN, STRETCH. Mum is up way early, something about sprinting. Ha! Mum does not run fast, so it must be racy cars going fast.
Are you sure you don't want to crawl back into bed and have some nice, long cuddles? Just the two of us? Well, three if you can Mr Bear!
Alright, you head off to stand in the sun. I am going to find a nice place to nap.See you this evening.

Happy Weekend.

Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

The worst of the hots for now is gone, we had some storms but not super bad here. Where Grampie used to live they got bad storms, floods and lots of trees down.
These are two different underpasses, both flooded and the bottom one from the other side had lots of mud as the ground collapsed on that side.
Us, well, the hots and rain are not good for flowers, so most everything is done for now. The roses are looking ok if you aren't looking really close.
 One last really nice pee-o-knee, this one protected by other plants so it lasted longer. Mum had to hold the flower up to get a good pic.
One cheeky chippy, with his spot 13! THE END!
Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Tuesday This and That

Quiet day for me, mum has been out and about most of the day. First she was at the library dealing with children and parents for the reading program. Really mum? Little peoples, the noisy kids, you?

Then she was off to see her money man. Seems some changes are happening where this guy operates and actually he is working from a new spot. So mum gets to change up her investments, to hopefully better stuff. More green papers to buy me toys!

So what have I done all day. Nap.

ManCat Monday

An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language.  - Martin Buber
 So what am I saying here? "Mum, get that flashy box out of my face!"
 So here are my paws and tail as well, plus a shot of mine backside with tail covering my spot 13.
 Plus mum got a good shot of a dangle, paw and tail.
The hots arrived, mum has the air chiller running, fans running so we are all good. Well mum did sit outside on Caturday evening, said it was nice. Wasn't humid, a good breeze. Sunday night, hot, humid and not much of a breeze. Mum went out and grilled chick-hen, I got some, said it was hot grilling in the hots. Said no more grilling until it cools off a bit.

Have a wonderful week everyone.

HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday.

The day has gotten off to a good start, me and mum had a nice cuddle first thing while mum was in the sleepy spot. She is awake but not quite ready to get out of bed. So I join her for a while to get my loves from here.

She then got up and moved to the fevver watching chair and we had a watch of all the fevvers, chippies and sqwerls in the yard. I was watching and mum asked if she could join me, of course I said yes. Then I jumped on her lap for a better view and more loves.
 The hots are supposed to arrive today, me and mum are ready. She got up the fans from the dungeon so help move the air around. She will also turn on the air chiller for the house if needed. 
Yay, have a wonderful weekend all.

Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

We have lots and lots of flowers! We posted a week ago, and on Friday the pee-o-knees started to open up their blooms!
The plants that get the most sun have the bestest blooms. Plus we have more pink, but this time roses!
Plus the weather has been so nice, warm, bright and sunny. Summer is here!

That is all. Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.
