Steinbeck, why did you put a picture of a clown on our blog?

‘Cuz Mom said she was scoping out clowns yesterday.  That’s why she was gone most of the day.

No, no, no………

Yes, yes, yes……..

Steinbeck, Mom wasn’t scoping out clowns, she had to have a colonoscopy.  Didn’t you notice that she didn’t eat all weekend?

Now that you mention it, I didn’t notice her in the kitchen very much.  So what is that cold as a pea thing?

It’s not a very fun test, but Mom says it’s really critical to determine if a human has cancer.

April 14 Storm Steinbeck

 

MOM HAS CANCER????????????

No, no, no…….relax.  Her test was fine but she wouldn’t have known that if she hadn’t had the test.

Will we have to have one of those cold as a pea things?

No.  At least I certainly hope not.  Can you imagine spending all day and night in the litter box???

That’s why Mom was living in the bathroom?

Surrounded by ginger

Did you notice she wasn’t smiling much……….or even talking???

Hemingway, if Mom ever puts peas in our food dish……..           

RUN!!!!

From the Mom:

Yes, I went through the torture of having a colonoscopy yesterday.  (I hope this isn’t TMI, but I do feel it’s important.)  The prep was really hard on me this time so next time, the doctor is going to change some of the things I have to take.  However, I’m glad it’s over and I’m glad they didn’t find anything serious.  Early detection is key and the fact I’ve had polyps in the past indicates I need to be alert.  Even though it’s no fun, I recommend everyone getting the test.  Oh, and I won’t be putting peas in the boys’ dishes.

Brotherly LoveHey everyone, we have spring here and it’s been wonderful.  That’s why you haven’t heard from us.  We’ve all been outside playing and working and enjoying all that fresh air.  That makes us really tired so we’ve been napping lots.

I like to go outside to be brushed.  Mom puts my furs on the log pile and then birdies come and take it for their nests.  I think that’s really neat. Now that it’s getting warmer, I have too many furs anyway, so I will gladly share.

Poor Mom has been working like crazy in the yard and she’s kind of broken her body.  She says she’s getting too old for all this stuff but she really loves pretty flowers.

She took some pictures of some of the stuff she’s been doing so we’ll just do a little slide show for you.  Hemingway, how do we do that?

Just put your paw on that button and stand back.

Ok………

We hope you enjoyed our pictures of Mom’s flowers.

I just want to know when the catnip is going to grow.  I saw one container that had chocolate mint in it.  Doesn’t Mom know that’s not good for us?

I think she probably bought that for herself.

Oh……..well, I guess she can do that.

WOW!!!  You won’t believe what we are living through this weekend.  

The angels opened all their bags of powdered sugar and flour and dumped it on us!

We don’t know why they got so upset.  We didn’t do anything.

Looks like we’re going to be inside until July.

This was Friday night when Mom came home.

This is what that same area looked like this morning.  We’ve had close to a foot of snow already and more coming.  We also have a blizzard warning and it’s the middle of April!!!

April 14 Storm 1

This is how Mom played with it using LunaPic for the Caturday Art Blog Hop.

Mom says she’s not going outside at all tomorrow.  Even her church cancelled the services.  People and fur people are supposed to stay put.

We’re just following orders!  We hope the rest of you who are free to go outside have fun this weekend.

Mom took our “Patty Paws’ picture and turned it into some art.

Mom loves to make us look different.  MOL!!!

This was what she started out with.

imageedit_23_4722760070

This is what she turned us into.  We think she got into the catnip.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

Remember to send spring this way if you see her!

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.

imageedit_8_5843304242imageedit_6_2953600674imageedit_4_5857430789

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.

imageedit_1_4857157591

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.

imageedit_10_4832269094

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!

Happy Easter to all our readers.  We hope it’s a very special day for you.  Mom decided to “play” with one of our selfies so it doesn’t look real normal.

MOL!  Do we ever look normal?

Here’s the original:

We wanted to take some time to wish everyone a Happy Easter!  Mom will be busy singing at church this weekend and we will be snoozing in front of the fire.

It’s cold and white again here!!!  Can someone please fix spring’s gps???

This is the picture Mom had of us.  Please note that Steinbeck always closes his eyes.

I don’t like that flashy box thing!

Just once you could leave  your eyes open.

I don’t think so.

Easter Eve

And here’s Mom’s Easter interpretation for the Caturday Art Blog Hop.

imageedit_17_9906361773Hemingway, do you think Mom will let us go outside?

Why would you want to go out there, Steinbeck?  It’s still cold. I like being inside where it’s warm.

But that white stuff is disappearing.

Did you hear the wind today?  That wasn’t a warm wind.  I think we should stay inside.

But look what Mom took pictures of tonight when she got home.

imageedit_24_3476357411

Look at all those green things sticking up out of the cold ground?  Do you think they are related to catnip?  Do you think they know catnip and can tell it to start growing?

imageedit_22_8501347221

And look here.  See……..there’s a little bit of color showing.  Doesn’t that mean it’s warm?

imageedit_20_6948764722

And look at that spot of color!  I think that’s gorgeous.  I think I should have a catnip toy made out of that color.  I could really celebrate spring then.

Steinbeck, I think spring got lost.  Even Mom is beginning to wonder if the spring’s GPS stopped working.  She got excited about that little bit of color tonight, but she said it’s going to get cold again.

So does that mean we’re going to have to stay inside the rest of our lives????

If it means not going to the doctor’s house, I’m fine with that.

Mom told us that spring is coming today.  She said it’s supposed to get warmer and flowers will start blooming and catnip will grow.  I don’t know why Mom isn’t staying home to welcome spring.  I guess we’ll have to do it.

Hemingway, will you help me look for spring?  I don’t know for sure what I’m looking for.

imageedit_3_3353496670

 

Is it under there?  Do you see it?

imageedit_5_2290833272

 

Don’t crowd me, Steinbeck.  I can’t see anything with your furry face in the way.  I don’t think spring is under here.

imageedit_7_5908924628

 

Hemingway, I just thought of something awful.

What?

Do you think we have to burn all this wood before spring comes?

imageedit_1_6533874563

 

I’m not sure.  However, I’m pretty sure we shouldn’t have all this white stuff around if spring is coming.  What are we going to do????
