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.

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!

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!!!!

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.

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!

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

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

Now go visit the Sunday Selfies of my other friends.

Mom got home a little early tonight so I begged her to let me go outside.  She said since it was such a lovely day and I had been good, I could go out and play for a bit.  There I was just surveying my domain and loving being Steinbeck-free.  Suddenly my world changed!

Hey Mom……..what’s all this stuff on the deck?  Did Hemingway make a mess?

dsc_0485

Look at the pretty color!!!  Do you think our friend Quint from Colehaus Cats would be interested in using this color in one of his paintings?

dsc_0486

Mom, should I try to glue some of these leaves back on the trees?

Oh, please do!  That will keep you busy forever!

dsc_0487

Mom, some of these leaves are the same color as me!  Isn’t that fascinating?

Are you going back inside now?

This is us relaxing on the deck a few days ago.

Tonight we’re inside and we’re not happy about it.

In fact, we’ve been inside all week.

Mom said all the angels were baking chocolate chip cookies and brownies and they all left their oven doors open so it got super, super hot this week.

She said she didn’t want us going out when it was so hot but we know that she’s the one who didn’t want to go out and play with us!

Mom said there were more reasons she didn’t want us going outside.

She said something about the Raptor Center releasing a Cooper’s Hawk youngster in our neighbor’s yard last week.  He was hanging around here looking for the older hawk that’s been in this area.  You see, the young one didn’t know how to hunt yet so they were hoping he would get lessons from the older one.

Hey…..I know how to hunt!  I could teach him.

Shakespeare, Mom doesn’t want you messing with any hawks.  She said they are dangerous for us little and not so little kitties.  Here’s a picture of one!

Cooper's Hawk s36-35-008_V

Is that the one in our neighborhood?

Nope.  Mom hasn’t seen him yet or you can bet she would be out there with the camera.

I guess we’ll just have to stay inside in the cool air for now.  I wonder if those angels would consider making some catnip brownies.  I could go for some right now!!!!

Well of course you would!!!

Mom wanted to take everyone on a tour of all the colors we have in our yard now.

You might ask why we aren’t taking you on the tour.  Well, some of the things are in the front yard and we aren’t supposed to leave the back yard.

You do that all the time!

Don’t tell the readers that.

Anyway, here’s another reason we aren’t outside:

That first step is a doozie!!!  Mom can’t even use the door now ‘cuz her legs are too short to navigate that route.  Her brother tore apart the deck and is putting in a new one.

Yes, Mom is using the front door now and that scares us!  We’re not used to having people we know come in that door.  Of course we also have trouble going in and out the back door now, too!

So Mom wanted to show us what’s blooming in the yard.  Here’s what she found.

These are some pretty little flowers in a basket.
