“Just walkin’ in the grass……….just sniffin’ all the smells……..just relaxin’ at the end of the day.” dum de dum………..toodle do……….. I can hum but I can’t whistle!!! If I could whistle, I would be letting everyone know how happy I am that the white stuff is going away.
Just a couple weeks ago, the front yard looked like this:
Now we can see where there will be grass……..and weeds! MOL!!! I hate to mention this to Mom, but she has lots of raking to do.
I could help with the raking. I would attack all that stuff just like I attack my feathers.
Somehow I don’t think you’ll be doing any raking. About all you do is venture out onto the deck and then run back into the house.
Well, there are lots of strange sounds and stuff out there. I’m not as brave as you are ‘cuz I’m still a little kid.
I think I’ll wander around a little more. Maybe I can come up with some suggestions for flowers that Mom should plant. I think most of the gardens should have catnip, don’t you agree?
Have you missed us?
We were forced to take a bit of a vacation ‘cuz our human didn’t seem to have time to operate the old computer thing.
We’re hoping she’s back to somewhat normal so we can chat with our friends again.
How have all of you been? Are you sick of winter like we are? We had so much white that we thought for sure the angels spilled all the flour sacks in heaven.
Lately they’ve been turning on all the lights and leaving the oven door open so some of that white stuff has been melting.
Mom even let us go outside tonight when she got home from the work place.
Hey Mr. Outdoor Cat, look at me!!! I’m actually outside. Have I missed out on much?
Hemingway, who are you talking to? Is it safe to come outside yet?
Well, on this side of the deck there’s still lots of that white stuff.
And on this side there’s lots of water with leaves floating around.
I think you better stay inside, Steinbeck. You get scared too easily.
That’s what you think, Hemingway. Look, I have two feet outside!!!
What about the other feet?
They’re staying nice and dry and warm inside.
It’s been melting a little around here. It’s still cold and there’s still plenty of white stuff out there, but here’s an update.
See……..the snow and cold didn’t hurt Mom’s flowers. She says they are very stubborn and just won’t let winter get them down.
Mom says she wishes she were a crocus or a tulip ‘cuz this winter is kind of getting her down.
Here’s one of the stained glass yard art pieces without the snow. Isn’t that rainbow pretty. It has a solar light in it so if the sun shines, then it lights up at night.
I like to look at it out the window.
Here we are waiting for Mom to come back inside.
She said she doesn’t want us going out ‘cuz the deck is wet and we’ll get all messy.
We think she just doesn’t want us looking to see if the catnip is growing yet.
Have a great rest of the week, everyone. Don’t forget…..if you see Spring, tell her to get herself over here right now!
