Big stack of wood

First of all Mom……you focused on the wood and not on me.  Second of all….what’s with all the wood?  You know how I love to chew on wood and this is way more than I can chew!

I found a secret hall

Look!  There’s a little hallway here.  I have a new hidey spot!!

Steinbeck and his wood

MOM!!!  Don’t let Hemingway see my new hidey spot.  Did you just take a picture of it?  Are you going to post it on that blogosphere place?  Now everyone’s going to know where my new hidey space is!

My eyes look like leaves

What hidey spot?  I was busy noticing how the leaves seem to match my eyes!  Steinbeck….leave that wood alone!

It’s fall here and that means the leaves are falling!  If the leaves stayed on the trees, the season would be stay.

Mom says “stay” to you a lot!

I’m ignoring that.  Anyway, Mom let us go out in the fall today and she took our picture.

what do we see

If you look very carefully, you’ll see me on the ground, under the bush.

Mom took the picture and changed it!

Oh My

Well, it’s Labor Day.  Mom is not doing any labor and neither are we.

Anyone in the kitchen

Mom could at least labor in the kitchen and make us a catnip pie.

I don’t think she’s going to do that.  However, did you see that we had visitors?  Mom said we couldn’t go outside while our cousins were here.

I slept through it all.

I did a little bit of a growl when I saw Stella but that’s because she’s so big and I’m supposed to protect the house.

Stella Bear

There’s Stella lying on OUR deck!!!

Robert and Static

Look……..there’s Uncle Bob letting Static lean on him.  Now he’s going to have doggy smells all over his clothes.

Stella Good Girl

Would you believe he’s telling Stella she’s a good girl?  More doggy smells!!!

 

Here’s a picture of Stella and her mom.  See how much Stella loves Mom’s niece?  Theresa has had Stella since she was a little puppy.

Stella and Mom

 

She was little????

Way back, long before you were even born.

Well, I’m glad Mom and her brother had some fun visitors today.  Now I’m going back to sleep.

Happy Labor Day, Everyone!!!

………..makes us happy!!

Readers, we have had some really drippy days around here lately.  It’s good for the plants, grass and trees but it’s bad for us and Mom.  We tend to get a little crabby.  Today is a brand new day!!!

Mom let both of us go outside and she came out and brushed us.  We listened to birds, smelled flowers, chased flying things and made sure Mom didn’t go pulling weeds and upset any of those stinging things.

Mom showed us these flowers and we all thought they were pretty.  The first picture is just a regular shot, but the second one, Mom messed around with her camera settings and they almost look like they would glow in the dark!

 

Mr. Peach

 

She also saw Mr. Peach blooming and showed that to us.  I think Mr. Peach has some of my colors!

Saturday black and white

I was resting on the deck and Mom took my picture.  Then she messed around with it and made it black and white.  She says my socks and bib are super white and she thinks I’m regal.

what is that

Here I am surveying the back yard to make sure there are no intruders.  I have to watch out for my little brother when we’re both outside.  Mom says he’s not as brave as I am.

up in the air

Hemingway, is that a bird up there or is it SuperCat?????

sunshine shot

I posed for Mom real nice.  She wanted to take a picture of me after she brushed out half my furs!

We’re going inside now to take a nap.  Maybe we’ll go out with Mom again later.

Have a great weekend, everyone!!!

Mom let both of us play outside today.  I got brave and walked around on the deck.  Mom chose this picture of me checking out some plants.

Steinbeck and plants

Then she did a bunch of things with it using LunaPic and came up with this for our Caturday Art entry in Athena’s blog hop.

I’m a little unhappy ‘cuz I can’t go outside and play.  Mom says it’s cold again and it’s windy and I won’t like it.  So she made this colorful picture of me for Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop.

Here’s the original.

Mom was super excited tonight when she got home!  She doesn’t have to set her alarm tomorrow morning.

Don’t worry, readers……we will make sure she gets up extra early to feed us.

Don’t you mean that you’ll wake up Mom?  You’re the one who always has to try and wake her up around 4am.

Well, you walk all over her in the middle of the night purring.  Anyway, after supper tonight Mom took us both outside for some brushing.

I got brave and even walked under the deck when Mom wasn’t looking!  I just had to see what was under there ‘cuz Hemingway kept checking things out.  Know what I found?  Lots of dirt and stuff.  So much for the brushing, Mom!

I’ms so excited that it’s Friday and I just can’t keep from jumping around!! Even this box can’t keep me still.

imageedit_22_2199051424

Can you believe I have to live with this???

I hope everyone is enjoying their Friday night.

We should be dancing!!

Steinbeck, you don’t know how to dance.  All you do is run around.

So?  It’s Friday night and I’m HAPPY!!!

We were calmly blogging away, sharing pictures with our friends and chatting about the crazy things humans do.

Then it was dead silence.  Nobody heard from us.  Where did we go?

We didn’t go anywhere, but Mom sure did.  She had a super busy week (or so she says) and she didn’t remember to turn the puter on for us.   You just can’t count on humans.

Mom said she had to practice singing again.  Won’t she ever get it right?  She has been practicing and practicing for years and they still make her practice more.  I would think they would have given up on her by now.

I was busy exploring things and getting into trouble because I had too much time on my paws.  However, there was one day I was a little angel.  That was on Good Friday.  I had no idea what that day was but I figured it was the one day of the year I was supposed to be good.  I did my part and now I’m ready for mischief!

DSC_0201

Mom………..I think I hear some mischief calling my name outside.

Steinbeck, look at how big your tummy is!

MOM……….Hemingway is picking on me again!!!!

DSC_0205

What?????  I didn’t do anything.

From the Mom:  Sorry we’ve been missing, but things got a little hectic for me.  Obviously the boys found stuff to do.  We all had a very nice Easter and they got to spend some time outside.  Hopefully we’ll be able to meet you in the blogging world more often now!  I’ll close this with one of my favorite pictures of Steinbeck.

Just call me Mr. Casual.

Happy Weekend, everyone!!  Mom doesn’t have to go to that work place today so she can play with us.  She said I could be the star today.  She used one of my pictures when I went outside a couple of weeks ago.  (That was when the angels had their ovens turned on and it was warm.  Now they’ve got their freezer doors open again and it’s really cold!)  Anyway, this is the picture:

in-and-out

She used LunaPic and gave it a thermal effect.  Then she added beveled edges.  This is what happened:

Hemingway says it looks psychedelic…….whatever that means!  I think it looks cute.  Thanks, Mom!

Howdy, Readers!!!  I had an adventure today and Mom said I could tell you all about it.  First of all, she said I have to explain that this is February and this is Minnesota and this weather just doesn’t seem right.  The humans are even going to have a BBQ this afternoon when they should be bundled up in jackets and shoveling snow!    Since this is my first February, I have no idea what the weather is supposed to be.  Well, I got to go outside and I had fun!!!

i-did-it

I did it!  I went outside to explore and feel the sun on my furs.

in-and-out

This is how I started.  I wasn’t sure if I wanted to be inside or outside, so I chose both!

nobody-can-see-me

Mom put one of my favorite boxes outside so I could hide.  Now nobody can see me.

lion-pose

Mom says this is my lion pose and she loves it!

Now go visit the Sunday Selfies of my other friends.
