We couldn’t wait for Mom to get home from that work place tonight.

We just had a feeling all three of us were going to go outside.

The birds were singing and the squirrels were running around in our yard.  They didn’t seem to care that we were coming outside to join them.

Here’s a little look at our exciting time tonight.

Mom, you’ve got lots of work to do.  Where did all these leaves come from?  Did the snow grow them?

imageedit_3_3923800066

Don’t worry, Mom.  I’ll help clean them up!  Just look at what a fine job I’m doing!!

Mom says this is my “Hunter Boy” pose.  She said she loves it ‘cuz it shows off all the colors of my furs.

This is what I did when Mom said we won’t be able to play outside tomorrow night ‘cuz it will be raining.  I wasn’t happy!

imageedit_5_4151486668

When we came inside Mom turned our toy on for us.  The feather dances all over the place.  It just didn’t seem to have the fascination that all the sights and sounds outside had, though.

Well, we hope you enjoyed our adventure outside.  We also hope that “snow” stuff is gone for good now……..and so does Mom.

Hemingway, I have a wonderful idea!  It will be great fun for a Saturday night when it’s still too cold to go outside.

imageedit_1_2339585829

You do realize that you woke me up from my nap, don’t you?  What is this big idea you had.

Well, you know how all the silly humans were talking about the “snirt” that fell on us this past week?  At first I had no idea what they were talking about but Mom finally explained that “snirt” is snow-dirt.  Seems we got some dirt and sand all the way from Texas and New Mexico mixed in with our snow.

I heard about that when those weather people were talking.  I don’t know where Texas is but Mom says it’s a long ways away and we can’t go there.  I don’t know if I’m real happy about them sending their dirt to us, though.  Maybe we should send them our snow!

I know Mom would agree with that.  However, my idea for tonight is to come up with some other snow addition possibilities.  I’ll go first.

Snatnip = snow and catnip (I’m all in favor of that)

Ok, I get it.  Here’s another one.

Snocolate = snow and chocolate (Mom would love that)

Snake = snow and cake.  (I don’t think I like that one.)

Snickles = snow and pickles (that just sounds funny)

Snizza = snow and pizza (that sounds like someone’s sneezing)

Snowdered sugar = snow and powdered sugar

Snuppies = snow and puppies

Snittens = snow and kittens

You’re right, Steinbeck.  This was a fun thing to do on a cold Saturday night.  Thanks for coming up with the idea.  Now let’s go to sleep.

………….and look what happens!!!!

BandW black yard

This is our black and white back yard.

And this is our black and white front yard.

I can't look

Here’s Mr. Outdoor Kitty saying that he can’t look!

Honeysuckle Frosting

Here’s honeysuckle frosting.

My deck is gone

Here’s me trying to figure out what happened to my deck

Not going out

And here’s me refusing to go out.

We’d show you a picture of Mom, but she has a really crabby face when she looks at that white stuff.  Those nasty weather people say it will keep dropping white stuff all night.

Where’s our catnip???

Mom said it’s safe ‘cuz it’s on the south side of the house.

Good!!!  Now I can go back to sleeping.

After a rainy weekend, Mom wanted to be outside when she got home from work tonight so that meant we got to go outside, too!

imageedit_1_7395083386Here I am checking out this bush.  It’s supposed to have leaves on it but I don’t see any.

imageedit_3_9103278502

And here I am trying to convince Hemingway that I AM outside….it just looks like I’m not.  I’m trying to warn him about the strange smells and sounds out there but obviously he’s not listening to me.

imageedit_7_3271976944

Mom found some little flowers blooming on the other side of the fence.

imageedit_9_9724803294Here’s some more that she thought were really pretty.

imageedit_11_3997414655

Now this flower is not real, but it’s one of her favorites.  It was made by a friend of hers.  She has lots of his stained glass things both inside and outside.  She tells us we can’t touch them.

And this picture is the very best:

Mom found some catnip growing and she gave us some!  I was so happy that I even walked out on the deck.

I walked out on the deck before I knew anything about the catnip.  Guess who the brave one is???

“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:

DSC_0070

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.

imageedit_4_3562692571

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.

imageedit_18_8651731997

Hey Mr. Outdoor Cat, look at me!!!  I’m actually outside.  Have I missed out on much?

imageedit_13_3890355166

Hemingway, who are you talking to?  Is it safe to come outside yet?

imageedit_18_3618575654

Well, on this side of the deck there’s still lots of that white stuff.

imageedit_15_4355058249

And on this side there’s lots of water with leaves floating around.

imageedit_18_5975658904

I think you better stay inside, Steinbeck.  You get scared too easily.

imageedit_17_7032526750

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.

I tried to take a really nice selfie and look who got into it!!!  Besides, that, he seems to have spread his “gingerness” all over the place!!!  Sometimes a nice tuxedo cat just can’t seem to win.

I didn’t want to be left out.  After all, we haven’t been online much ‘cuz of weather and other stuff, so I knew all the readers would want to see me as well.  I’m a handsome dude!

We’re so tired of the angels dusting!!!

Did they save up all their dusting for a bazillion years or something?

Just look at what they did!

Mom opened the back door for us today and asked us if we wanted to go outside.

Is she crazy???  Why would we want to put our beautiful feet in all that “dust” the angels stirred up?

No sir.  We stayed inside.

Remember when I was complaining about having too much cold and no snow?

imageedit_1_6851307030

I said all that cold was being wasted. Well…………

snow kitty

Look what happened to poor Outdoor Kitty!!!  He’s amazed.  We haven’t really had snow this winter……….until now.

ready

To make things worse, Mom said we’re losing all of our degrees and going way into the hole.  Tonight the actual temperature may get down to -27 F.  That’s almost beyond the bottom of degrees in my mind.  Poor Steinbeck has never seen cold like this.

Good thing Mom got more wood so we can just stay inside and be warm.

If anyone has extra degrees, please send them our way!  We would all really appreciate it.

Back and forth.  Back and forth.  What’s gotten into you, Steinbeck?  Do you have ants in your pants?

ants

In the first place, I don’t wear pants.  In the second place, I sure wouldn’t allow ants in them.  What made you ask such a stupid question?

You keep running around the house like a crazy cat.

I’m using my excess energy to warm up the air.

What?

It’s cold outside and I’m trying to get it as warm as possible in the house.

We have a furnace and a wood-burning stove to keep all of us very warm.  You don’t have to run around using up all your energy to make it warm.  Besides, I like to take naps in the sun puddles.fire

angel_dusting

But if you look outside, the sky is gray and there’s no sunshine.  There are no sun puddles around.  Besides, there are a few little white specks floating around in the air.  I guess the angels must be dusting today.  I have to keep running around so nobody gets cold.  When I get tired, then I’ll take a nap.

I’m going to dream about taking a nap in a sun puddle.

I’m tired now.
