Mom said I could “fancy up” my selfie today.  I was so excited.  We all got to go outside.  I decided it was the perfect time to use my body to clean off the deck.  There were little twigs and old leaves and little bits of this and that.  I managed to get them on my fur.  MOL!!!  That’s why Mom said I should “fancy up” my selfie.  I hope everyone had a very good weekend and is ready to start another week.

Steinbeck, have you looked outside?

I don’t want to.  I made the mistake of looking out a little while ago and it was white.  I guess the angels were washing their wings and they spilled detergent all over the place.

You can believe that little tale you made up if you want to, but I know I’m not putting my paws in that white stuff.  I’ve learned that the white is cold!  And I also have the feeling it’s going to be around for a long time now and it’s going to bring all its friends and relatives and it’s going to pile up on everything, and then it’s going to take Mom longer to get home from work and then we won’t get our supper until late and then she’s going to be crabby about driving on ice and then she won’t settle down and watch a movie with us and then…………..

Take a breath, Hemingway.  I remember the cold and I don’t like it.  Let’s just turn our backs on it and stare at that flower.

………that today is National Cat Day.

We don’t get it.  Why do humans think they have to make a special day for cats?

Don’t they realize that EVERY day is CAT DAY???

Well, to celebrate us today, Mom let us go outside and play when she got home from work.

It was a little chilly but we had our fur coats on.

imageedit_5_7490054099

Steinbeck, those leaves sure look like your fur!

imageedit_7_6502737757

Be quiet.  I think there’s a black kitty over here in the leaves.  I’m going to pretend I’m ignoring him and see if he turns around.

imageedit_1_3413449525

I can see for miles and miles and miles from this spot.  I can see more leaves falling.  Mom’s not going to be happy.  Those trees are making a mess in the yard again.

imageedit_9_6084390937

Look Hemingway……..the leaves are making a mess on the sidewalk and the driveway, too.  Mom doesn’t let us make big messes like that.  How come the trees get away with it?

imageedit_3_3782333025

I don’t know.  I thought Mr. Outdoor Cat was supposed to be watching for stuff like that.

imageedit_11_3274749464

Hemingway………did you hear what Mr. Outdoor Cat said?  He said it’s going to get colder, all the catnip will die and then he mumbled something about the “s” word.  Can we convince Mom to move to Florida???

Why not?  After all it’s National Cat Day!!!

Look what my little brother did most of the day:

imageedit_1_9627346284

So what are you saying?  Mom got me this new bed so I’m supposed to sleep in it.

All day?????

imageedit_3_8380916357

Why not?  Look at how beautiful my furs look against the sparkly blue.  It makes my gingerness look gorgeous.

The only reason you are in that bed is ‘cuz you stayed out in the back yard too long last night and Mom got mad at  you. And then you got really tired.

I told her I was busy counting the flowers.  Look at all I found.

imageedit_5_8997669521

There was this pretty vine by the honeysuckle.

Look at that.  It’s red.

imageedit_11_6005914196

And look what was growing on the honeysuckle.  Isn’t it pretty?  It would be fun to bat around on the sidewalk.

And it’s red.

imageedit_7_9514863904

Then here’s some grrrrrrrrrrrrraniums.

Once again, they are red.

imageedit_9_3275649435

Then there’s this pretty flower I found by one of my hidey places.

Amazing.  It’s red.

imageedit_13_4318716507

And then I found this one also by my hidey place.

Hey………..it’s not red.  How did you manage to find that one?  So, what was your excuse to Mom for staying out so late.

I told you.  I told her I was counting flowers.

Only the red ones?

They were easier to see in the dark.  I really had to strain my eyes to count that black piece of tuna.

Steinbeck, I don’t appreciate you staying out late ‘cuz Mom gets worried and then both of us have to stay inside.

But I wanted to count flowers………………

We’ve been having some lovely weather lately and Mom’s been letting us go outside with her.

She even found us some humongous, really big catnip leaves to enjoy.

imageedit_13_3676970738

Actually, I was a little more interested in my food dish.  Mom interrupted my supper with the chance to go outside.  I ran out quickly to see if there was anything interesting.  Then I figured it was best for me to get back in the house so I could eat Steinbeck’s food.

imageedit_11_5543563071

Hemingway……..you stay away from my food!  I planned on eating that later.  Notice that I have a very determined walk…….and a rather stern look on my face?  Hemingway……I mean it.  That food is mine.

It’s a good thing we both went back inside because before long we had visitors.  Our “cousins” all came over.

There was Stella the Goofy Newfie.

imageedit_17_9083713747

Who me???

Then there was Static the old man.

imageedit_1_5970290988

Who are you calling old???

Then there was this new guy they called Sunny.  Well, it might be Sonny.  Mom forgot to ask!

imageedit_9_9807392343

Sure, I’m the new guy but I’m really cute and I have lots and lots of energy!

imageedit_15_2042022179

Stella had to show that her black furs show off all the dirt……..just like Hemingway.

imageedit_5_8854423258

Sunny likes to cuddle.

imageedit_3_2781750243

And Stella likes to stick her tongue out.

imageedit_7_7602292280

Steinbeck stayed hidden while our cousins were visiting, but I was curious so I went right to the door and looked out at Sunny.  He wanted me to come out and play but everyone said I had to stay in the house.  He’s real new and they didn’t want him scaring me.

So, our quiet evening got pretty rowdy and now we’re all ready to go to sleep.  Hey….our cousins didn’t get into our catnip, did they????

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.

imageedit_1_2568444862

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!!

imageedit_7_3107347838

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

imageedit_11_8829755060

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.

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:

imageedit_5_4959242027

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.

The Boys 2018

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!

imageedit_10_3329594638

imageedit_12_4190422944

imageedit_8_3722904179

imageedit_6_2817828714

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.
