 HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday. Happy start of a long weekend here in Mericky! Be safe everyone. 

Mum got some stuff in a box and I was checking out the box. I am not much of a box kitty, but I still check them out.


We had a warm day on Wednesday so mum got one of the ice cream treats out. She ate the chocolate off then she let me have some licks. I even have a moovie of me getting my licks. 

Mum has to go pick up her flower plants today, plus she has to finish getting the grass in the back yard all leveled off. She didn't do it cuz of the cold, wind and rain the past couple of days. 

It won't be super warm this weekend, but the weather guessers say it will be sunny. Plus there will be racy cars to watch on the moving picture box. 

Have a good weekend everyone.

Puzzle Garden Thursday

 Well, the girls are staying in, but me and mum will show you some of our flowers! Fleur said she might come out soon.

It got all warm on Monday into Wednesday, then boom it got all cool again. Will be cooler and rainy for a couple of days. Mum is out working on getting the grass eater over the grass. Again. Has to finish the back today. 

Puzzles are flowers and me!

Mini-Mancat Monday

Any conditioned cat-hater can be won over by any cat who chooses to make the effort. - Paul Corey

Yep, I try that but most of mum's furiends like kitties so I'm good there. Now her brother Uncle Stormy, well that is another story. He is a hard nut to crack. Plus he doesn't visit often. 

Mum did take it easy this weekend. No yard work, very little house work. A bit of dust can wait for a day or two. She did go out to return library books on Caturday and came home with ice cream bars on a hot day. Yep, I got some licks. 

Come on mum, sit down in the reading chair and just chill. We can watch fevvers or yeah, we both can take a few naps. Naps are good,

 Have a good week everyone!

 HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday. 

Me and mum are going to take it easy this weekend. Mum had a bizzy week with stuff and needs to gets lots of rest. I need to sit on her to make sure she does rest!

Yeah Mum, sit down and rest. You have done lots this week with the plants, grass eater and other stuff. Just take it easy, take a few naps, read one of your books. 

Happy Weekend everyone.

Puzzle Thursday

 Yep, gotten really nice. Mum keeps the window in the sleepy spot open all night, same thing for the kitch-hen window. Front and back windows open during the day. A few rain showers and even a couple of rumbles of thunder. 

Mum went flower shopping on Monday, she went to the actual flower place. She got all sorts of stuff and got them put into the ground on Monday and Tuesday. She is watering them even though we did get a bit of rain. 


Me? I am just chilling watching her work! Then I sit on her so she relaxes too!

Mini-ManCat Monday

Your first cat's job is to train you well for all the others who will follow.

I think Derby did a good job of training up mum. She knows how to give good scritches, cuddles, pets. Feeds me good stuff and plays well with me. 

 Me and mum had a quiet weekend. She got going early on Caturday to get out and get gasoline for the grass eater, then finish getting the grass shortened in the back. It was supposed to rain early but it didn't rain until late afternoon. So mum rushed and she didn't have to. 

Today she says she is going out to buy flowers for the baskets in the front of the house. Maybe a few other things as well. Depends on what she finds that looks good and what will be good in our garden. 

The weather guessers say it is supposed to get much warmer, so lots of open windows for me. 

Have a wonderful week everyone!

 HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday. The day is getting off to a nice start, we may have a few rain showers but mum hopes they hold off until she mows the back 40! Otherwise she will have to do it tomorrow!

Pictures of our orinch bird coming back for this season. They sing outside the sleepy spot window and wake mum up! Plus Chip the Monk has shown up for the summer. 

The birds didn't wake mum up this morning. I did and mum was not happy. I stepped right on her face with my back paw with my long claws. I made it hurt but thankfully I didn't draw blood out. Sorry mum and sorry for waking you up so early on a Caturday. 

So once mum gets really going this AM and gets her chores done she will watch horsie races and read her book. 

It is straw hat day. You know I don't like hats!


Happy Weekend.

Puzzle Thursday

 Woot, things are good here. While it is rather cool in the morning it warms up nicely during the day. Lots of sun too. Mum had the front window open as well as the big window in the back. So nice. 

Mum has been a bit bizzy outside. She added to the brush pile for the village people to pickup. They haven't come by yet. So until they do if mum sees stuff she can add she will. 


Me looking seductive at mum while she rests and looks at the fevvers outside. We have seen our usual spring birds except no red breasted grosbeaks this spring. At least not yet. 

Mum's big shoes and my nip nanner, what do I want. Neither, let's go to the kitch-hen for a snack.

 Puzzles this week. Just my sweet face!

Mini-ManCat Monday

Although all cat games have their rules and rituals, these vary with the individual player. The cat, of course, never breaks a rule. If it does not follow precedent, that simply means it has created a new rule and it is up to you to learn it quickly if you want the game to continue. - Sidney Denham

Yeah, you gotta play by cat rules and cat rules are subject to change at any time! Just sayin'.

Hope you all had good weekends and cellybrated with your mum. Me and mum had a nice quiet weekend and she stayed home and did stuff inside and out. 

 Mum did the cooking outside, one pig chop with eggy plant! She likes pig chops on the grill more than she thought she would.

While mum was working on pruning out dead stuff from the shrubs and she got it all piled up ready for pickup. While she was working she noticed the really old lilac that she cut back in the fall is now sprouting new growth! So she will have to work on this and get the weeds and such away from this. She was sure the plant was on the way out.

Here is mum's very small brush pile. Some years is is much more, but it saves her a trip to the compost pile.  

Then she came inside to hang out with mum and chill. We watched fevvers for a bit. She keeps looking for one fevver we haven't seen yet. A rose breasted grosbeak. We hope we see one soon. 

Yeah, you watch. I will take a nap while you watch. Mum also did some crochet on hats for humans while she watches the moving picture box.

Happy Week everyone!

 HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday. Me and mum are planning to take it easy this weekend. Mum got the grass eater out and evened off the grass. She even got the brush out to the curb for pickup next week. She might want to add a few things to it, but the worst is ready to go. 

Me sitting on mum and trying to get her to rest some more. She does rest but is always jumping up to take care of one more thing. Just chill mum!

Our crabby apple tree, it is blooming earlier than usual. Plus a close up of the blooms.

Plus our bleeding heart. We hope none of this gets frozen, it is cold this morning.

Happy Mum's Day to all the mum's. Mine, for kits, dogs and humans. We love our mum's!
