Spring Fever

Sam grazing on the grass

What a great day for nibbling the grass and catching some "rays" !

What a pretty day it was yesterday!  The sun was out, there wasn’t much of a breeze, and there was no sign of the mean old cat from next door to bug me so I asked “pretty please” to go out.  It was great.  The grass isn’t really growing yet so it was tough finding a few long blades but I did so I was able to have my “greens”!  Mom sat on the front porch and kept an eye out for me while I went down the sidewalk checking for anything edible……I got to the driveway by the garage and the UPS guy’s noisy old brown truck came down the main road and stopped – then turned up MY driveway!  That’s when I high-tailed it back to my porch with Mom running behind me.  She knows how much I hate company and when I see anyone coming up my driveway – it’s time to go hide!!!    Mom and I came inside quickly and I went to my safe place in the basement while she looked out the window and sure enough he had stopped about a third of the way up – and backed back down (wrong address I suppose). 

That was about the extent of the excitement around here on Friday.  Other than of course the “MONSTER”  (Mom’s vacuum cleaner) was on the loose because it was housecleaning day…..

Anyway, being outside on such a pretty day makes me remember that it won’t be long before I’ll be asking to go outside a LOT more because spring will be here.  Mom will be planting stuff in the gardens and the grass will be growing just right for my snacking and birds will be building nests so there will be lots to watch from my various perch locations in the house. 

However – before we get to all of that, we have to finish winter and the weather guy says Sunday we could get a BIG dose of winter.  He’s not sure yet (of course) but we could get anywhere from an inch to a foot of snow.  Good grief!   I guess I’ll be thinking back to today and how nice it was to at least THINK about spring……………….sigh………………

Happy Saturday Peeps!

  1. Yeah, I imagine you will get what we’re getting right now, Sammy. Well, we a\\’re getting rain, but by the time it gets up there it’ll probably be snow. Snow is nice sometimes, but 12 inches is gross.


  2. Wow – 12 inches of snow! I know your parents are hoping that doesn’t happen! That would be a lot of work on your dad – clearing all that off your driveway.
    Glad you had a nice day yesterday – too bad the UPS man interrupted your fun.
    Love, Sundae


    • Hi Sundae…..yeah, that UPS guy does that a lot…..you’d think the fact that we have our house number right on the mailbox post (like everyone else does!!!) would be a CLUE as to where he should go but……..nooooooooooooooo…….he gets it wrong every time. HAHA Now when Christmas was coming and my parents had ordered a bunch of stuff that the FedEx guy AND the UPS guy delivered, I was up and down those basement stairs ALL DAY LONG when they were delivering stuff. That was tiring!!!! HAHA

      Hope you don’t get much snow tomorrow….
      Love, Sammy


    • We’re still waiting to hear how much snow we’re going to get tomorrow – we’re going from the 50s today with some sun to WHATEVER we get in the way of snow tomorrow…..could be a foot of the stuff…..we’re hoping for ZIP!

      Have a nice weekend!!!!
      Sammy (and his Mom too)


  3. I am so glad that I am in Egypt. Nellie tells me that we had another 5 inches of snow last night! That means we have had more snow in the last week than we did in all of January! I can’t wait for spring. BTW Buddy are you up for a trip? I need some help on the next step of the Mr Chirpy caper.

    • Hi Miss Trish! Wow…..thanks for visiting me – I know how busy you’ve been getting everything read for Book ‘Em in Lumberton. Guess what! My Sunday blog today was ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL about Book ‘Em! Mom’s looking forward to seeing you next week. I’m glad it’s spring down there because it’s still winter up here and Mom can get a break!

    • Hi Miss D…..it was nice to get a bit of “salad” in my diet….not much is GROWING out there but at least I found a few shoots to munch on – that will have to keep me going until spring REALLY gets here!
