Posts Tagged ‘Fur People’

Well, it’s another Sunday and time for a selfie. We decided to use our “gazing outside” pose.

Hemingway, you look so big in this picture!

That’s because you were being lazy and decided to lie down.

Oh.  Next time I’ll sit up so I can look big!

Mom said we should get busy and do some Caturday Art since we’ve been missing out on it for several weeks.

Here’s what we chose:

Here’s the original photo:

You may not realize it but we’ve both been very busy trying to find Mom a job so we haven’t been in the blogosphere for a long time.

We loved having her home ‘cuz then we got to play outside more.

Don’t tell the doctor lady but she even gave us a little lunch each day!  (We’re both supposed to be on diets….especially Hemingway!)

Steinbeck, what did I tell you about that subject????

I can’t remember.

Likely story.  Anyway, this morning we helped Mom eat her breakfast and make her lunch.  Then we pushed her out the door.

MOM GOT A NEW JOB!!!!

I was going to gently let the readers know…….sigh

I love telling the readers exciting things so I couldn’t wait.  Tell them more about the new job.  I’ll be quiet.

Well, it’s less than ten minutes from home and she doesn’t have to drive on the freeway at all.  Steinbeck……don’t ask about the freeway now.

OK.  What a grouch!

Anyway, she’s on the eight floor of a building that overlooks the Delta hangars (that used to be Northwest where she worked), Ft. Snelling (where her parents are buried), the Mall of America and a busy freeway.  She loves the views that she has from her desk.  She said she’s going to take pictures sometime so we can see.

She said she had pizza today for lunch and then they all had cookies for a celebration in the afternoon.  How come she gets to eat all the time, Hemingway?

‘Cuz she’s the Mom!!  You know that.

At least now we don’t have to worry about her running out of money to buy our food and toys.

We miss having Mom home during the day but she seems really happy to have this job.  She said the people are really nice and she felt very welcome.  Her boss even greeted her with a hug and at the end of the day asked if she was coming back the next day.  MOL!!!

We’re happy for Mom and now we’re going to do more napping during the day so we can play at night when she gets home.

Mom says to thank everyone who prayed, said kind words, and encouraged her.  It all meant lots to her!!

Mom calls this my “little otter” pose.

Thanks, Mom!!!  Hi everyone!  I hope you’re all having a super wonderful day.

Mom’s been busy trying to find a job so she doesn’t always have time to play with us.

That means we have to make our own fun and according to Mom, we’re really good at it.

Here’s one thing that’s kept our attention lately.

It’s a thief!!!

Well, it’s certainly a hungry little critter.

Mom said it’s not nice to steal.  Obviously this squirrel’s mom never mentioned that.

imageedit_8_9482376504

Mr. Squirrel, you’re not doing a good job of hiding from us.

imageedit_11_2607984852

Trying to wear that yellow flower as a hat isn’t working.  We can still see you.

imageedit_2_5400561634

Hey….did you wash your hands before eating?

Hurry, Steinbeck….let’s see if anyone is taking stuff in the back yard.

This is a tale of tails.  Two tails.  Or maybe two tales.  It’s a whale of a tale  tail….or tails.

imageedit_1_2978327468

There’s a fluffy orange tail that seems to shine in the sunlight and loves to be draped over the top of the computer desk.

imageedit_2_7058834780

Then there’s the fluffy black tail that tries to hide in things, but somehow doesn’t quite make it.

These two tails can make Mom crazy at times.

The black tail is notorious for knocking things off of shelves, tables, desks….anywhere.

The orange tail can pick up all sorts of leaves outside and bring them in the house.

The black tail can try to tip over Mom’s bottle of tea if she isn’t looking.

The orange tail can leave bits of orange fluff all over if it isn’t brushed.

The black tail can get in Mom’s face when she’s trying to sleep.

The orange tail can fly high and mighty on runs through the house.

The black tail can thump wildly when impatient.

imageedit_5_8210944253

Put these two tails together and you don’t get a new color.  You get love.  Without these two tails Mom would be mighty lonely.

The end.

…………on Blueberry Hill.

Hemingway, what’s a blueberry?

It’s something humans eat but you and I don’t.

So why am I singing about it?

Who knows……(sigh)

Wait…….is this a blueberry?

Blueberry Trip 8

Hemingway b and w

Yes it is.  Tell me again why you are disturbing my nap.

I know why I’m singing.

Great……..yawn…..

Remember last week when Mom left and took a road trip?  When she got back, she told us she had gone over to that other state and went way up on the river bluffs and picked blueberries at this really neat farm called Rush River Produce.

Blueberry Trip 4

Mom’s bucket when she just started picking.

Blueberry Trip 6

The barn looks so nice with all the flowers.

Blueberry Trip 7

Mom loves the views from this farm.

Blueberry Trip 9

Oh lovely blueberries.

Blueberry Trip 2

Some more of the flowers at the farm.

I remember how happy Mom was when she came back from her road trip.  Did you see all those blueberries she had?

I guess we should be helping her find a job but if she had been working, she wouldn’t have been able to take that trip ‘cuz she says weekends go too fast when you have a job.

I FOUND MY THRILL…………ON BLUEBERRY HILL…..

Steinbeck, a little less noise please.  zzzzzzzzzzzz

Mom said I can be the star today since Little One got to do it yesterday.  We’ve had all sorts of weather today.  We’ve had rain, wind, blue skies, sunshine, clouds.  We did manage to get outside for a bit but we had to time it very carefully!

Here’s my selfie for the first of July.

Have you missed us?  We’ve been gone a really long time. We’ve been busy playing outside, eating catnip, chasing flying things, watching raindrops on the windows, patiently waiting for our meals, spreading our toys all over the house………

imageedit_8_9126984607

Stop, Hemingway!!!  You’re wearing me out.  Can’t  you just imagine what you’re doing to our readers?

Well, I didn’t want it to seem like it’s all Mom’s fault that we’ve been gone so long.

But it is mostly her fault.  It all started when she got older.  She couldn’t even stay home when she got older.  She had to take one of those road trips and leave us to celebrate her birthday on our own.

But she came back home and she spent some time with us since she took a couple extra days off.

Little did she know that she was going to be spending LOTS of time with us.

Shortly after her birthday, Mom came home a little early from work but she didn’t have a happy face.

We knew right away that something was wrong.

Mom sat us down and explained that her company former company had eliminated her position and she was out of a job.  She was really mad at first and really, really hurt.  We tried our best to take care of her and cheer her up.

So Mom’s been looking for another job and doing some writing on some book ideas she has.  That’s why she hasn’t been able to help us with our blog.  We’ve missed our readers.

Steinbeck, Mom figures that God still wants to her to use the skills, talents and abilities that He gave her so she knows He has something for her.  In the meantime she said she’s busy jumping through all the hoops for unemployment.

I haven’t seen any hoops lying around at all.  Does she keep them in the garage? I might like to jump through hoops.  Then again, I might not…….but I should get the chance…..

Steinbeck, sometimes it’s so hard to carry on a conversation with you.

imageedit_10_3795502524

 

I’m telling Mom that  you’re being mean again, Hemingway.

Quit whining and keep looking on the puter for a new job for Mom.  Do you think she would like to be a tree trimmer?

Hemingway, do we get a vacation?

imageedit_6_8625097896

Steinbeck, why are you asking such a question?  Mom would quickly tell you that every day is a vacation for you.  Mom has to go to work and I have to stay home and take care of you.  That means all you do is sleep, eat and play.

Is that a vacation?

Well, it can be.

Is that what Mom did when she went on that vacation last weekend?

Not really.  Mom was busy running around with her girlfriend, checking out neat restaurants, looking for fun things to buy and playing with her girlfriend’s dogs.

imageedit_3_6051781225

Trust me.  Playing with dogs is NOT a vacation!!!  What did the dogs look like?  Were they as cute as I am?

Give me a break.  Here’s a picture.  Each dog has a favorite toy as you can see.

imageedit_9_5967321064imageedit_12_7439689803

MOL!!!  I see what’s wrong with them.  They both look like you!

imageedit_1_9063337780

Mom………on your next vacation……….I’m going with you!  I know I hate to ride in the car but taking care of Steinbeck is getting harder and harder as he gets older.  I need a vacation!
