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!

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.

We think we know why Mom is not a big fan of winter.

Well, we’re not big fans either.

True, but just think what we’ve been through in the past few days.  Last week the actual temperature was -30 and the windchill was around -50.

Isn’t most wind chilly?  At least in the winter.  That’s stupid to measure how chilly the wind is.  Humans……..

Anyway, then over the weekend it got warm and things started melting and it even rained.

Not a good plan, Mother Nature.

That’s right.  Mom went out to her car on Monday morning and before she knew it, she was kneeling in the driveway and couldn’t get up.  All around her was ice covered with water and there was no traction.

We promise we didn’t laugh.

Hemingway and Cookie Jar

I may have giggled around the cookie jar…….just a little.  But I only did that when I knew Mom was okay.  Even she admits that she looked kind of funny trying to get up.  She told us later that she kind of scooted over the water-covered ice so she could grab hold of her car.  Maybe if she had paws instead of feet with shoes on them, she might have been able to get some traction.  She got up, looked at us, kind of smiled and headed to work.

Now today the angels are busy dusting and they have feathers and dust flying all over the place.  Mom’s view at work got shortened with all that stuff flying around.

They must be working really hard ‘cuz the dust and feathers are flying all over the place.  Everywhere we look outside, it’s white.  Sometimes we can’t even see across the street.

I bet Mom wishes she had stayed home with us.

By the time Mom got home tonight, this is what it looked like.

Remember when I was complaining about having too much cold and no snow?

imageedit_1_6851307030

I said all that cold was being wasted. Well…………

snow kitty

Look what happened to poor Outdoor Kitty!!!  He’s amazed.  We haven’t really had snow this winter……….until now.

ready

To make things worse, Mom said we’re losing all of our degrees and going way into the hole.  Tonight the actual temperature may get down to -27 F.  That’s almost beyond the bottom of degrees in my mind.  Poor Steinbeck has never seen cold like this.

Good thing Mom got more wood so we can just stay inside and be warm.

If anyone has extra degrees, please send them our way!  We would all really appreciate it.

That’s me!!!

I’m the brave one. I went outside in the cold airs and I even sat down on the really cold deck.  Mom, you could have cleared a bigger space for me.  I barely fit all of me in this spot.  See the wood?  That’s so we can have fires in the house and make it cozy.  The wood man came last weekend with his really big truck and unloaded wood for the house.  We were both scared of him ‘cuz he doesn’t come that often, but we were all thankful he was here.

imageedit_4_4150424625

I’m brave, too!  It’s just that my toy wanted me to stay inside with it and sit in the sun puddle.  I didn’t want to hurt the toy’s feelings so I stayed inside where it’s warm.  I didn’t want my ginger toes touching all that cold white stuff.  I sniffed the cold airs and decided the angels had left the freezer doors open way too long for me.

Mom had the day off today so we both got extra play time with her.

She had to go see the dentist and get her toofies cleaned.  She told me that they use root beer flavored cleaning stuff.  What’s root beer?

It’s a flavor you probably wouldn’t like.  They would have to use catnip flavored stuff for us.

My toofies are fine so I don’t need to be going anywhere no matter what flavor is involved.

And you were talking about being brave?

Never mind…………..

We are all in shock here so we’re not posting a “normal” Sunday Selfie.  Just take a look at this.  Our star today is Outdoor Kitty……….and he’s not happy!!!!

imageedit_6_9895125210

MOM!!!  Why is that white stuff out there?  Did you spill flour again?

Mom said that my look expresses her feelings too.  That’s why she decided to let me use this picture for the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.

For those of you who don’t know, we got hit with another winter storm over the weekend and got over a foot of new snow.  There will be mountains of snow all over the place until July!  Mom is really fed up and she keeps mumbling things about Hawaii.  We don’t know what she’s talking about, but we’re thinking she’s not happy with the weather people right now.

So, here’s what I think about all this snow and cold:

WOW!!!  You won’t believe what we are living through this weekend.  

The angels opened all their bags of powdered sugar and flour and dumped it on us!

We don’t know why they got so upset.  We didn’t do anything.

Looks like we’re going to be inside until July.

This was Friday night when Mom came home.

This is what that same area looked like this morning.  We’ve had close to a foot of snow already and more coming.  We also have a blizzard warning and it’s the middle of April!!!

April 14 Storm 1

This is how Mom played with it using LunaPic for the Caturday Art Blog Hop.

Mom says she’s not going outside at all tomorrow.  Even her church cancelled the services.  People and fur people are supposed to stay put.

We’re just following orders!  We hope the rest of you who are free to go outside have fun this weekend.

Mom said she really liked this one picture of me so she decided to mess fix it all up for today’s art.  Here’s the original picture.

Then, after doing all sorts of LunaPic things to it, this is what she got.

We were afraid that we were going to wake up to more snow this morning but the storm went south and west of us so we didn’t get anything.  Mom was super happy about that!  However, we still have all those crusty mountains of snow that just won’t seem to melt.  We know spring is out there somewhere……..      Sigh

Check out our other friends at the Caturday Art Blog Hop and have a wonderful weekend!

Mom told us that spring is coming today.  She said it’s supposed to get warmer and flowers will start blooming and catnip will grow.  I don’t know why Mom isn’t staying home to welcome spring.  I guess we’ll have to do it.

Hemingway, will you help me look for spring?  I don’t know for sure what I’m looking for.

imageedit_3_3353496670

 

Is it under there?  Do you see it?

imageedit_5_2290833272

 

Don’t crowd me, Steinbeck.  I can’t see anything with your furry face in the way.  I don’t think spring is under here.

imageedit_7_5908924628

 

Hemingway, I just thought of something awful.

What?

Do you think we have to burn all this wood before spring comes?

imageedit_1_6533874563

 

I’m not sure.  However, I’m pretty sure we shouldn’t have all this white stuff around if spring is coming.  What are we going to do????
