Garden Thursday

Umm, welcome to Garden Thursday? A garden full of snow! Starting on Caturday afternoon we started to get rain, freezing rain, sleet and then snow. We probably got about 6 inches of snow. Plus it was super windy.
 Cat down! The wind got Glimmer and then the snow started to bury her. Mum didn't rescue her, Glimmer did OK.
 We got a bit of melting but not much. So Trooper at least had her head above the snow. Glimmer?
 Glimmer, at least we can begin to see her head and a couple of paws. This was early on Wednesday. 
Just after lunch on Wednesday, guess what? Yeah, it started to snow again. Soon Glimmer well she is going back under the cover of snow.

Trooper getting covered as well. Mum had to go out for a meeting so when she got home she took one last picture for Wedneday. Can't see Glimmer at all again. Even Trooper is almost under!
Me, I have better sense and have stayed inside like a smart cat. I watched the weather guessers and they say we are supposed to start finally getting melty weather starting today. Will be interesting to see how long it will take to make this all go away.
See you next week!

Outside is still all white and they are saying more white stuff on Wednesday. We give up!
We had a sunny day today, some melting. I want sun all the time and warm enough for open windows.

ManCat Monday

Cats don't like change without their consent. - Roger A. Caras

Yeah, I don't like change. Especially when we finally get some sort of decent weather and it changes back to WINTER!

We had some rain Friday and early Caturday, then just a bit of snow late Caturday. Then overnight it hit and kept snowing into the day of Sunday.

 Mum did clear off the drive as best she could, but lots of this is snow and ice stuck. Or super heavy to shovel. Mum says the sun can help it melt soonest.
 It was super windy too. Blew over the feeder holder and mum just left it down until Sunday when the wind was less. It even blew Glimmer over and she is buried in the snow.
Mum found a picture of me on one of her flashy boxes, yes, she has more than one. We had sun that day and I was blisshed out by getting tummeh rubs. I want a wonderful sunny and warm day, actually I would like lots of sunny days.

Happy week.

HiYa Ducky here. It is Caturday and mum and I are not going anywhere today. It is all icky out, cold, wet, rainy. Maybe we will also get freezing rain, sleet, snow before the weekend is out.

Mum was going to take some old puter stuff to the electronic recycling drop off today. Nope she says, too likely to run into slippery driving. It can wait for another month when it is better.

We did have good days on Wednesday and Thursday. Mum used the griller machine again and did some chick-hen. It was yummy. Mum ate one and the other is in the big cold box.
 So what will we do today. Nap, read and just hang out. Hope your weekend is better, or at least has nicer weather than we will.

Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday. We finally got a nice day on Wednesday. It was nice enuf that I, Virginger went outside for a bit.
 I greeted those crazy kids who don't know enuf to come out of the snow, but they say they are just fine. No worse for the icky weather.
 I then joined mum while she cooked her sausages on the griller machine. She is trying to use up what stuff she had in the cold box before she goes to buy more stuff for the griller machine.
 The mum checked out the back and she looked and both of the feeders on the pole are gone. We saw sqwerls having a feast yesterday, so it didn't take them long to find the feeders and take advantage of them. Mum doesn't see that they hung them somewhere else.
 Finally in the back we are beginning to see the tulips and such start to poke their noses out. So if we get more warms we may get some flowers. Mum says today Thursday will be warmish, but then more cold weather. ICK.
Take care everyone. See you next week.

ManCat Monday

There is no more intrepid explorer than a kitten. - Jules Champfleury

Another week is starting. Mum says this will be a quiet week, mostly her being home. That will be nice. That means sleeping in and naps in the afternoon.
 Mum watched a bit of what she called golf on the moving picture box. Men in bright colored clothes hitting a little white ball. Mum just likes to watch as she can see lots of purrty flowers. With our weather we don't have much in terms of purrty flowers.
 Plus you can see that we still have some snow left from the other day, plus the weather guessers are saying we might get a bit of snow today. Not as much as we had the last time but still, it is April and we want warms, enuf to have open windows.
 Mum says we have stupid naybors behind us. They attached some hangers to the electric pole, then hung some fevver feeders. Plus they put sqwerl baffles on them. Stupid as a sqwerl can easily climb up the pole and have a feast. These guys aren't too bright!
 Me, well, this was when me and mum were getting ready to have a nice bit of a nap yesterday. Guess we may end up here again today. 
Happy week everyone.

HiYa, Ducky here. Happy Caturday. It is sunny but cold outside. Sheesh, Mother Nature, will you please have a hot flash or something and warm us up? The weather guessers are saying snow for Monday.

I will take advantage of the sun and plant myself in the front window. Soak up some of that energy, then go sit on mum to help warm her up.
Mum says she has no outside of the house chores today, so she can skip the colds. Yesterday she took the grass eater to get its pre-season tuneup. Maybe someday it will be warm enuf the grass will grow.

Mum says she does need to get the sucky monster out. Something about cleaning up after me, seems she found a yak spot that needs attention. MOL!

Happy weekend everyone!

Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday. Our garden is hidden by snow. It is the first week of April, we expect warms and rain showers. Not this white stuff.

As you can see I am still inside and and keeping warm. Mum is letting me stay inside until we know it will be nice and warm. Since I am getting, ha, getting? Since I am a senior squillion, she is being nice to me. 
 Late Tuesday the snow started to stick. It had been misty and rainy all day long. The snow and it continued to snow overnight Tuesday.
 So Wednesday AM we woke up to some sunshine and snow. You can see Glimmer and Trooper hanging out in the snow. They are young and foolish, I would rather be inside.
 The crocus flowers buried under the snow in front of the house first thing in the morning.
 The snow on the trees, this looks more like Christmouse than a few days after Easter.
 Mum was good and cleared the driveway even though with the sun it would likely melt. This was good that the sun made it all dry during the day.
 Later in the afternoon you can see the two crazy ones. Still with some snow on them, plus you can see what melting went on during the day.
 So is spring coming soon? Not likely, they are talking more snow for the area. Sheesh, I think spring got all lost.

See you next week. Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur(still hiding).

Way down deep, we're all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them. - Jim Davis

Urges, or urjes as Skeezix used to spell it. Mum deserted me on Sunday afternoon. She went off with Miss Lynn to be miserable. No, mum says she was seeing Les Miserables. Whatever. Mum said she liked it, the singers were good. 
 Mum did some cooking this weekend, she did a Yorkshire pudding. Said this is the best one she ever made. It stayed all nice and puffy even after she took it out of the oven. She hadn't made one in a while so she was happy it worked. She changed one thing, she ran the beater on the eggs lots and she thinks that what made it so puffy.
 Me, well I napped lots waiting for mum to get home. Then she watched JC Superstar. So it was a musical kind of weekend for mum.
Oh,  yeah, they are talking snow again this week. Where, oh where is spring?

Happy week.

HiYa, Ducky here. Happy Easter Eve! Hope the bunny bringing goodies brings what you want.

 Mum rolled out the griller machine from its winter spot. Woohoo, that means good noms coming up when mum cooks outside.
 She is trying to use up what she has in the freezer box, so she started with a couple of burgers. They were nice and tasty. Mum has chick-hen in the freezer, along with some brats. Then she will buy some new meats, some nice tasty steak will be good.
 It may be spring but the cool weather is hanging on and we may even see snow flakes today. It won't stick to the ground, but ick, we want spring weather. Sunny and getting warmer.
Happy Easter,
