Winter Wonderland


Mindy here: ... da weather is NOT cooperating at all. Not that's it's really cold or anything, but first there is snow, then rain......then more rain and den more snow. It is messy outside mostly on da roads. Our backyard looks like a Winter Wonderland when all dose big fluffy snowflakes fall and pile up on da trees.


Here is a picture .........


















I spends a lots of time watching da birdies and stayin' cozy inside.



















Move over, Mindy, it's my turn to blog. No one wants to look at all that white stuff.
I wants to show efurryone my new fishie.






Okay, okay, yes, it's pink! but even mancats like
pink fishies ........I wish it was real, tho.















I sure hopes we don't get snowed in........den mom won't be able to
go food hunting. I better check and see if we're getting low on
Temtayshions!



Yep, just as I thought - only half a bag left. Emergency, Mindy, can you help me add it to mom's shopping list - quick!

Photo Hunt - Messy

Photo Hunters


This little fellow is Earl (the squirrel). He got named by Mickey's mom. Now, he IS very cute, but also messy. Earl eats all the good parts of the seeds - like sunflower seeds - and leaves the outer shells ALL over the bird feeder and anywhere else he decides to eat his meals. We cats think he looks very tasty....err, cute.


















This is our back deck with snow on it. Our humans are not impressed, though, they keep saying that they have to go outside and shovel the 'mess' off of the deck......we think it looks kind a purrty.



















This is the kind of messy we like to clean up - hee, hee,....yummmm.

Flurries on Friday

Yesterday we had freezing rain which froze solid and then it snowed. It took mom and dad a long time to clear everything off the metal machines this morning. They needed to take one of them to the garage and - surprise - we are now having snow flurries. Here is a picture of our wreef on da back deck.







Mom went out dis morning to feed da birdys. They was furry hungry. Here is a dark-eyed junco taking a rest in our barberry bush.

Dat's great, I love to watch da birdies

uh, birdies? Did you say birdies, Mindy? I'll have to stir myself and get a look, too.

Look what else I see, Mindy - icicles! Brrrrrr.

Thankful Thursday

Mindy, come here and look at this.






















You have to see it for yourself.























Moe, it's a green bottle of........cat pee!! It was under our Christmas tree. It was for mom.

Why would mom get that? Let me have a closer look.































Moe it says 'white wine' in da small print. Let's not tell mom what it really is. Oh, I can hardly wait until she see this. Oh, this is going to be a GREAT joke! Ha, ha, we's thankful the joke is NOT on us!

Boxing Day

Boxing Day is the day after Christmas Day and has its roots back in feudal times in Europe when there were large estates. The owners of the large estates needed people who leased or worked on these lands. The 'serfs' were bound legally, economically and socially to do this work....the feudal system. It was common practice for the servants to carry boxes to their employers when they arrived for their day's work on the day after Christmas. Their employers would then put coins in the boxes as special end-of-year gifts. Due to the practice of filling the boxes, the day after Christmas became known as Boxing Day. (wikipedia)

Today the Boxing Day sale is usually a very busy day in the retail business except in our province where it starts tomorrow. In Canada it is also the start of ......hockey tournaments and World Junior Hockey Championship!

That said, here is a picture of us with our stockings and toys.....we had a good Christmas!

Random Photos


This is a picture of a gift mom got from a quilter friend. It doesn't smell very interesting, but those 'chicken' legs and feet sure have possibilities for some fun.








The next picture is one of another gift mom got that was early. It's an amyryllis bulb.






She was told to plant it immediately about a month ago, which she did. It was supposed to be in bloom by now - hummmm, something went wrong. It seems to be growing a little bit tho. Mom put it in da light and near heat and even watered it. We think the pot of dirt might possibly be fun, tho.

Moe, we need some pictures of us. Let's find some to post.

Photo Hunt - Light

Photo Hunters

Here is our Photo Hunt Light photo. It's fire light. We are cats and we have to be careful around any flame. This enclosed candle holder (also a warmer) is safer when we are around.























I think the fire flame looks nice when the overhead lights are low.


I think I agree, Mindy, also fire light makes my eyes sparkle.

Friday is Friends

Today we want to tell you about our "Not Of My Species Special Friend" Poppy, the little blonde chihuahua. On Wednesday our friend had to have emergency surgery to repair a ruptured disc in her back. She was a very brave little woofie. Today she hopes to leave the vet and go home. She will have to be on strict crate rest for the next two weeks. She is usually very, very active, but now she is hurty and has to stay quiet.

Poppy's mom and dad found her at the Santa Cruz SPCA in 2005, where she was recovering from a broken pelvis. She was just a puppy then. They took very good care of her and adopted Poppy! If any of our visiting friends want to drop by Poppy's blog and cheer her up - she would really like that.



Please get well soon, Poppy.











Love from us both.

Trees on Thursday

We turned out the overhead lights and plugged in our tree. It was a bit dark for getting a picture, but this effect turned the lights into 'stars' - we like how the picture turned out. (click to biggify)




We also have a small tree in our kitchen. It is years old, but we added lights for the fun of it.


Moe don't you think da kitchen tree looks just a little bit tilted?

Nope, Mindy......it's good, it's ALL good!

Easy Like Sunday Morning


Mindy


Moe - is checking out a lizard - did Daisy send this to us? Hummm, maybe it's NOT a lizard.

Mom says that the storm that swept over Kansas is heading straight towards US! Probably later today and will deliver us a foot of snow too........guess the storm is 'not in Kansas anymore'....hee, hee, we couldn't resist that worn out saying.
