…..for this very important announcement.

Actually, Mom already is the Crazy Cat Lady but we love her for that.  Steinbeck picked out this picture ‘cuz he wanted me to get in trouble.

I did not.  It’s just that there weren’t any really cute ginger pictures.  Someone needs to post more pictures of me!

Steinbeck, this post is not about you  This is about Mom and her birthday.  She’s even spending the day with us instead of going to that work place.

She’s been kind of interrupting my naps, but that’s OK.  Is she going to have catnip cake?

I don’t know.  Let’s tell the people what Mom did for her birthday over the weekend.

You mean when she left us home all alone with nobody to talk to?

Steinbeck, quit whining.  You know her brother was here to feed us and take care of us.

Oh yeah………..I forgot.

Mom’s trip to Alexandria, MN let her see and do some of her favorite things.

There were the flowers:

Mom said all these flowers were in her girlfriend’s yard.  She thought they were so pretty.

Then she also got to see some dead buildings.  I still don’t know why she gets so fascinated with them.  It must be a human thing.  The only reason I might like a dead building is if there were mousies in there.

Then there was shopping at Country Consignments.

Mom said she had a great weekend even though she didn’t take us with her.

I’m kind of glad she didn’t ‘cuz I don’t like riding in the car.

Believe me, we ALL know that.  You sing so many songs of your people that you should go hoarse.

I am not a horse!!!!

Anyway………….

Happy Birthday, Mom!!!!

Yep.  Here I am in jail.  Actually, I’m trapped between the two doors.   I don’t know why Mom did that.  I’m giving her the evil eye ‘cuz instead of letting me out, she’s got that flashy box thing out.  Stop it, Mom!!!

Mom……that’s enough.  Hemingway is laughing at me.  Don’t you dare put these pictures on our blog.  I forbid it!!!

Note from the Mom:  I must admit that I laughed when I came back by the door again.  I had just gotten home from choir practice and of course the boys were right at the door to greet me.  I thought I got both of them out of the way, but after putting some stuff away, when I came back into the room, there was Steinbeck, between the doors.  Rather than let him out right away, I confess that I did go get the “flashy box”.  It was too priceless.  Here are some pictures of their outdoor fun this week.

Hemingway, why are you staring at the dirt?

Because I can.

imageedit_10_6532948300

Hemingway, why don’t you get up and practice your stalking like me?

Because I don’t want to.

imageedit_7_2380260162

Hemingway, look at how pretty my tail looks in the grass.

So?

And Mom calls me Crabby Pants????

Do do doodle dooo……..I think I’m going to “rebrand” myself as a lion.

imageedit_1_2339585829

Steinbeck, what on earth are you doing now?  What’s this talk about rebranding?  Where did you hear that?

imageedit_1_7442998368

Look……………this makes me look like a lion.  The rebranding worked!

imageedit_8_9965602923

Well, I look like a jungle cat here and I didn’t have to go through any “rebranding” stuff.  I just sat out in the bushes.  I still have no idea what you’re talking about.

Don’t you ever listen to Mom?  She’s been talking about all the “rebranding” they’re doing at work.

Oh, do you mean when her company changed their name?

That’s it.

She did say she was getting confused when she answers the phone, but that happens all the time.  I don’t think she was talking about “rebranding” us, though.

Maybe not, but at least I’m ready!   RRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

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.

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.

BandW black yard

This is our black and white back yard.

Bandw front 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!

frosted flower

Here’s a frosted flower.

frosted mirror

Here’s a frosted mirror.

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:

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?

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.
