Posts Tagged ‘spring’

Brotherly LoveHey everyone, we have spring here and it’s been wonderful.  That’s why you haven’t heard from us.  We’ve all been outside playing and working and enjoying all that fresh air.  That makes us really tired so we’ve been napping lots.

I like to go outside to be brushed.  Mom puts my furs on the log pile and then birdies come and take it for their nests.  I think that’s really neat. Now that it’s getting warmer, I have too many furs anyway, so I will gladly share.

Poor Mom has been working like crazy in the yard and she’s kind of broken her body.  She says she’s getting too old for all this stuff but she really loves pretty flowers.

She took some pictures of some of the stuff she’s been doing so we’ll just do a little slide show for you.  Hemingway, how do we do that?

Just put your paw on that button and stand back.

Ok………

We hope you enjoyed our pictures of Mom’s flowers.

I just want to know when the catnip is going to grow.  I saw one container that had chocolate mint in it.  Doesn’t Mom know that’s not good for us?

I think she probably bought that for herself.

Oh……..well, I guess she can do that.

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 I could use my selfie today.  I’ve been looking for Spring for days and days.  She’s so lost she may never find us!  If anyone sees Spring, please tell her to come visit us.  We need her!!!

Mom took our “Patty Paws’ picture and turned it into some art.

Mom loves to make us look different.  MOL!!!

This was what she started out with.

This is what she turned us into.  We think she got into the catnip.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

Remember to send spring this way if you see her!

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!

What a beautiful day!!!

Mom had to go to that work place but we spent the day looking out the windows at the sunshine, the birds, and the squirrels.

Mom said she looked out the window lots today, too.

She said she wanted to be home with us so we could all play outside!

Mom finally got home, put Steinbeck’s vest on him and we all went outside in the warm air.

I didn’t stay outside very long ‘cuz there were all sorts of noises and I got a little scared.

I keep telling you to stick by me and I’ll protect you.

I know, but I’m still a kitten and there’s just too much stuff happening.  If I’m not making the noise, I tend to get a little scared.  However, I did go out for a little bit and Mom even brushed me.

Mom brushed me lots and lots.  She keeps saying that she gets enough fur off me to make another kitty but I haven’t seen her do that yet!

Mom took some pictures for everyone to see.

Cuter than Copper

I stopped to talk to the Copper Kitty and I decided that I’m lots cuter than he is. Besides, I get to sleep in a warm bed and he has to stay outside.

It's Noisy Outside

Mom says our readers never get to see me with my eyes open. She took this picture while I was inside and she was outside. She says I have very pretty eyes, but whenever I see the flashy box, I close my eyes. Mom fooled me this time!

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.

The ferns are loving this spring!

For some reason this spider doesn't scare Mom.

Hey Mom……….why didn’t you take any pictures of our catnip????

Not too many days ago we were outside enjoying the sunshine and warmer temps.  The birds were singing, the grass was turning green, some flowers were coming up………

Even our catnip was growing and Mom gave us some of it.

Now today it was gray, very windy, cold and then know what?

Those stupid white flakes started swirling around out there again!!!

Did Mom arrange this so we wouldn’t be so upset about staying inside while she goes and does that work thing?

Did the weather humans turn the wrong page on the calendar?

Whatever it is, we don’t like it.    The only thing I didn’t like about playing outside the other day is that the stupid trees decided to start dropping things all over the place.  When we walk outside, those sticky things get stuck in our fur

I have to work and work on my feet to get those stupid sticky things off of them!

I’ve been having the same problem.  Just look at my handsome foot!  Those rude trees shouldn’t do stuff like that.

It looks so much better without the sticky things!

Flakes or sticky things?  We’re not sure which is worse!

Hey, did Mom go get some more catnip yet? We don’t want to go out and walk in the sticky things.

Dear Readers, I believe I may have done something.  I think I’m being punished for what I did to Mom last weekend.  I don’t know what’s happening outside but I don’t like it!!

Nobody knows I'm hiding here and they can't blame me for what's going on outside!

Mom......what did Hemingway do????

Mom……what did Hemingway do????

Is that snow on the grass?

Look....the flowers are covered in snow!

This is just not right!

From the Mom:

Boys, don’t you remember last year when the tree behind us exploded and left “snow” all over the place?  Well, it happened again and since there wasn’t much of a breeze, it just sort of dumped in our yard.

To my boys’ faithful readers, I just want to give you an update on my leg.  I’m still on antibiotics and pain pills and the ankle is still quite red and swollen.  I was so excited yesterday because it actually felt like it was finally starting to heal.  I may have overdone things today and it is very painful tonight.  If it is still quite red and swollen on Monday, I’ll go see my doctor again and probably get more antibiotics.

Speaking from experience, don’t ever treat bites from fur people lightly.  They don’t mean to hurt us human moms and dads, but they have lots of germs in their saliva.  I have also learned not to spook Hemingway, especially when he’s in hunt mode.  Believe me, he is my “Gentle Giant” and I know if he really understood what he did to me he would feel just awful  Both boys mean the world to me and they are doing all they can to make me feel better.
