ManCat Monday

A catless writer is almost inconceivable. It's a perverse taste, really, since it would be easier to write with a herd of buffalo in the room than even one cat; they make nests in the notes and bite the end of the pen and walk on the typewriter keys. - Barbara Holland

The snow came and went this weekend. We didn't get much and it went away fast. Thank goodness.
Above is when it first started, below is how it looked when mum  came home from having dinner out. It was snowing worse where she had dinner. Harder to see ahead, but she made it safely there and back home.

Next morning, Sunday, the sun was shining bright and you can see how it the snow was melting quickly.
What about me? Well, I had lots of naps and cuddles with mum. She made a bunch of her crow-shay hats for her project. Plus we sat and watched it snow together. We are both hoping this is the last of the snow for a long time. Although mum says she amembers when it snow once in MAY!
Hope everyone has a good week. We start a new month this week.

HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday and I certainly hope your Caturday will be better than mine! Why?

Well, first, mum is just now getting around to helping me post. Seems she feels her stuff should come afore mine. Reading the newsy paper and other stuff on line. Feeding her face, getting dress, washing up and all. No, it is my time!

Second, we are supposed to get more snow. Yes, you readed that right. SNOW! Enough already. The girls are not happy at all about this. It won't start until after lunch however.
So I am going to take it easy today. Well I usually take it easy every day. I will report on the snow come Monday.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday. Spring has sprung! With the nice weather the past few days the flowers are flowering. Stuff is starting to grow.
 The bleeding heart and the columbine and the astilbe.
 The hiya-cinths just popped on Sunday. Purple, blue, white and pink.
 Plus the lawn guy came around, did his think so our lawn can be happy.

Plus mum did a work day with the crew at the community garden. The started a couple of new raised beds, plus worked on the old ones.
 Pruned up the trees, taking out some dead stuff and keeping them away from the walkway.
So mum  had a bizzy day and we all are enjoying the better weather.

Have a good week ahead. Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

ManCat Monday

Even the stupidest cat seems to know more than any dog. - Eleanor Clark

Yep, we do. I hear the yappers in the nayborhood, plus I see all the woofs that go by on the trail. I have the best deal. I stay home!

We had a marvy weekend. Lots of open windows and mum sat outside and readed her book under the surprize! Which is a nice little table that holds a big umbrella for mum to sit under and be in the shade.
Here it is on Caturday morning when mum had just got it up and put it where she wanted. You can see umbrella down and up. It has a crank to open it up. Plus the umbrella tilts is you need to move the shade. Mum has don't that yet.

So yesterday after lunch mum went out and raised the brolly, moved her chair next to the table and sat down. She took a picture of where the sun started and where it ended from her sit. It last from 1 PM to 5 PM!

Her book and a drinky, just ice water, plus the girls were right next to her enjoying her company. We had a super nice day and mum was so happy to be able to sit outside and enjoy it and be in the shade.
I enjoyed the inside while mum was outside. I had been in the window, but was leaving. Plus mum did a video of me kneading on her belleh

Have a good week everyone!

HiYa, Ducky here. Happy Caturday! Mum is up early, so am I. It is bright and sunny. First after mum woke up we had a nice long cuddle in bed. Then the heaty monster started so I moved out to hang in the hammick for the early morning.
I guess we can call this Easter Eve. Mum has been good this year and hasn't even bought any candy or choc-o-late. She says that is better for her waistline!

It is supposed to be a nice weekend according to the weather guessers. Mum says she will be doing some work outside. Says she has a surprize for us including the girls outside.

Have a good weekend, and a wonderful Easter.

Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday. As Ducky showed you we got more snow on Sunday. That is twice in the last week. I knew we came out of hibernation too early.

Although we are seeing a few more signs of spring. The lilac is starting to show green for the leaves that will soon be opening up. 
 A few new daffs that haven't been dumped on by any snow.
 Just a few spots where the four-sith-ia is about ready to start blooming.
 The tree guys showed up again to attack a couple of trees, our maple and one of our pine trees too. They were only hear for about a half of day. It was raining yesterday afternoon, so mum didn't go out to see exactly what they did.
 The goldy finches are still working on getting all bright yellow for the summer. Plus we saw our first Chip the Munk yesterday. I little fuzzy, mum took the pic at a distance and then biggified it.
Have a happy time, see you next week. Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Tuesday This and That

Sad day around the world as we see the pictures of the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Mum was there back in September and she is happy she got to see it. The walls are standing, they need to get a roof back on, clean up the mess. It will take years, but it will be back.
Our snow is gone again. Got bright and sunny on Monday, warmed up nice. By late morning still some around, but by dinner time, pretty much gone!
Mum had to get a new grass eater, seems the old one had some serious engine issues. The old one didn't last more than 6 years! That isn't long enuf, these things take green papers to get and that probably means I get less treats!
I just sat in the window and enjoyed all the sun puddles that came through on a sunny Monday.

ManCat Monday

If a cat spoke, it would say things like, "Hey, I don't see the problem here." - Roy Blount, Jr

Well, we do have a bit of a problem. We keep seeing ads that say Winter is Coming. Heck, I don't even think winter wants to leave this year. We got more snow on Sunday!
 Mum, this is not right! She goes, I knows. Poor fevvers looking for foods to eat since the snow is covering the groud.
 Me with mum looking outside. Yep, she did leave me for racy cars this weekend, however she came home early. They combined things so they got done early, but mum left even afor it was done. Next year she says if they have an really early event and it is going to be cold, she will stay home. She doesn't like being cold.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week. Stay warm, we are hoping for sun to melt this new white stuff.

Saturday, April 13, 2019


This is how I feel toward mum today. Seems the racy car stuff is starting earlier in the year than it normally does.
It is supposed to be an icky, cold weekend. Don't freeze your backside off!

Hope the rest of you have a wonderful weekend.

Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday. I knew we came back too early. Look at things on Wednesday! SNOW! Go away snow.
 Wednesday about 5 PM.

We did have some nice days on Monday and Tuesday and mum took advantage of that and got lots of work on here in the back yard. She didn't get all of the stuff done last fall, so had to do some extra cleanup now.
 These two are from Monday. Mum raked and then she started to pull up the old landscape fabric, but couldn't quite get it all up. Plus she was trimming back woody stuff along the fence.
 Tuesday she managed to get the rest of the big fabric section done, plus a small leftover bit. She has one more small part to get up if she can without disturbing flowers. Well done mum.
 A few more signs of spring, before the snow came. The bleeding heart starting to send shoots out, tulip blossoms and some sign of green on the lilac.

Don't worry, the snow won't last for long. Hoping for nicer weather again next week.

Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.
