Garden Thursday

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

Kinda quiet around here, mum isn't doing much out in the yard, just letting things grown. We see bees and butterflies around, which we love.
Plus the hummers are being crazy! They are chasing other birds out of the trees and even chasing each other away from the hummer feeder. Sheesh guys, get a grip and settle down!
 You haven't seen the four of us in a while, so here we are. Just hanging out on the patio with mum this past week. The weather has been nice, not hot and even not much rain.
 Mum cooking on the burger machine, but not doing burgers. Some of the eggy plant she got a few weeks ago, she is finished with her taste testing. She liked the stripey one the best. Plus some good old bratwurst!
That is all for now, have a wonderful holly-day weekend. Love Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

ManCat Monday

I don't think it is so much the actual bath that most cats dislike; I think it's the fact that they have to spend a good part of the day putting their hair back in place. - Debbie Peterson

Yeah, don't ruffle our furs, we only have to spend all that time getting everything back in place. 
 Of course, I do love my scritches, so I do agree to a little bit of mussing of my furs. I loves to sit on mum and get my loves. I did lots of sitting on her this weekend, glad she was back home with me.
Course, I do my best to be a seductive little guy, so I know that she will always come back to me. She likes to be a bit of a home body, but has things that interest her that take her away from home from time to time. But she always comes home to me. I loves that.

HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday and Happy Weekend. Mum has finally gotten herself going. She is all showered and clothed. She has been awake and sort of doing stuff, but slowly. She even got her litter box room cleaned!

Well, mum abandoned me for a couple of days to go off galivanting with Miss Lynn. But she got home sooner than I expected! She was home by lunchtime yesterday, usually she doesn't get home until later in the day.
 Here are some pictures of the country side. Mum wasn't driving, so no worries. Mum says if she crops the road part off the pics they are sort of pretty.
 Mum went shopping, they had a street fair where they were selling stuff and she found a spot that had cat stuff.
 Yep, I agree with this saying, we all need a home and every home needs one if us! Go get a cat gang.
 Some of her boards so her claws are all smooth. One just has flowers, but mum says these pretty things were a bit pricey for just claw smoothers. 
A big mug, they came in black or white only. Hey, we ginger kits deserve our own mug as well, but they are cute. Something new for mum to drink her tea from. She tested it out, the ears won't poke her in her eyes.
She left this wrapped up, something for Hollow Weenie time and mum said it was cute too. Hey, I thought you were trying to declutter this place? You just bring more stuff home!
So I am going to sit on mum and soak up all her loves today since I missed her being home. I did cuddle in with her in the sleepy spot early today, but I have to make up for the cuddle time we missed.

Happy weekend everyone. Stay safe from that HurryCane Mr Harvey if you are near by.

Garden Thursday

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

Howdy, hope you all survived the eclipse on Monday, we did. We did not look at the sun, well, we didn't have sun to look at! It was all cloudy and even a little bit of rain. Mum said that if we are all around in 2099 the eclipse will be here, right at our house. She is extending an open invitation for all to come and hang out. Hmmm, even with all of our nine lives I don't think we will be around!!

Mum found a new fevver feeder. It is a mesh bag, but it has larger holes and it is made for meal worms. The fevvers have emptied it twice, mostly the chick-a-dees eating at it Mum is hoping that she might attract blue birds.

Otherwise it is quiet in our garden. Glad you stopped by. Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

ManCat Monday

It is difficult to obtain the friendship of a cat. It is a philosophical that does not place its affections thoughtlessly. - Theophile Gautier

Well I have no worries to putting my friendship in mum, she treats me super nice and I loves her.
 Mum went off with Miss Lynn on Caturday, they went off to where this big fancy building was, mum says it is the Whiskerconsin Capital building. She didn't go off to visit the gov but......
 went to see all sorts of peoples selling all sorts of stuff. Mum didn't come home with much.....
 just a bunch of these purple things. Eggy-plants which mum likes to make on the burger machine, but these are smaller and different shaped. Mum  has eaten one of them, the one on the left. said it wasn't as tasty as the type she normally eats. She cooked them the same way as she normally does.
 Plus it is eclipse day, will have to see if we will be able to see it as it is supposed to be cloudy. Oh well. Just a little over 6 years until the next one.

Happy weekend.

Garden Thursday

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

 Our big old grapevine, but mum isn't seeing any grapes this year. She hasn't figured out why, but she had to pull the vines off the lilac next to it. The grapevine kinda gets out of control. Mum sometimes thinks about getting rid of it, but likes the block to the naybors.
 So there is the pile of the vines that mum needs to haul off to the compost pile.
 So a few flowers as well, these are just outside the kitch-hen window. Mum forgets the name of the of it, plus the lilies that the one naybor calls "naked ladies".
 The one below is our ornamental thistle, this one isn't so bad with sending off seeds. We have a few of the other kind of thistles too.
That is all for this week. Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

ManCat Monday

New Cats are under warranty from the manufacturer: Six Years or 100,000 meows, whichever comes first. - Bill Mason

Oh noes, Six years?! That means my warranty is up. Mum says she doesn't care, she will take care of me. 
 Me and mum  had a wonderful weekend. First, she stayed home with me, so I got lots of cuddles and pets and good foods.

Mum did something strange on Caturday night, or really early Sunday morning, she got up out of bed and went out and looked at the sky for about an hour. She said she was watching for meteors. She did see a few.

Plus she slept in her regular clothes and not her sleeping clothes. Said it was easier to go outside and be dressed. Then she slept in for a bit as well. But I thinks things are about back to normal schedule.

Hope everyone has a good week.

Saturday, August 12, 2017


HiYa, Ducky here. Happy Caturday. Hope your weekend is starting out wonderful, mine is. Nice outside and the windows are open.

Mum did some changes around here and earned some green papers at the same time.

Mum's old inside bicycle, that she didn't really use. She put it out on a local website and three people wanted it. She even got some green papers for it!
So the spot once it was gone the other night, but she wasn't done making changes.
 Mum got the sucking monster out and clean up those rugs and then took them away to the give it away store. She didn't want them in the house anymore. Then she did lots more cleaning in other places too.
Me, I got up on my tower to stay away from all of the chaos. I think she is done cleaning for a while, hopefully.

Happy weekend.

Garden Thursday

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

We have not seen that kitty who passed through last week. Must have had someplace to be and was just passing through.

Mum is upset at the sqwerls! They wreaked her cute little bird feeder. Her is mum's first picture when she put it out back in February. All shiny, all the bits and bobs attached.
 Mum got up the other day, all that was left was the round circle hanging,,,,,
 then little bowl part was laying on the ground. Mum tried to fix but....
 it didn't look very good. So maybe she needed something new.
 So here is the new little feeder, hopefully it will last longer that the last one. Plus mum found this little sock thingy that holds mean worms for birds. She just put it out, so don't know if we will be seeing different birds.
 Yep, we still have flowers, here are the cone flowers and a day lily from the back.
That is enuf for now. Hope you enjoyed the flowers and well, the feeder issue.

Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

ManCat Monday

Only the most foolish of mice would hide in a cat's ear, but only the wisest of cats would think to look there. - Andrew Mercer

No mice around here to hide from me. They don't try to get in our house anymore and that makes mum happy. Here are some pics from 2011 when Derby got the culprit that wanted to invade our place.
 Yeah, I like my grass, but mum hasn't seen me noshing away at it. But then she doesn't sit there and watch me and the grass all the time. Here is a pic of Derby, he loved his grass.
Me, mum and I had a nice quiet weekend together. She was home pretty much all day for both days, just quick runs out for errands.
I sat on her lots to keep her home, it was nice.Have a good week everyone.
