Yay Spring!

Standard

Oh My Cat we had the most BEAUTIFUL day Sunday.  Just glorious.  I got to spend a LOT of time outside too which made me very happy.   Before I could go out there though Mom and Dad had to finish what they wanted to do in the yard which was NOISY……….I don’t “do” noise you know!

Gimme some QUIET!

Gimme some QUIET!

They loaded up the leaf mulch from our ground up leaves two Falls ago and put it in the cart that’s attached to the lawn tractor and hauled it up to the front garden.   There was enough to cover all the area in the garden.  Mom had to rake carefully around all the new little perennials popping up but it’s DONE and Mr. Noisy Tractor is back in the garage.

My front garden SHOULD look like this in a few weeks once things grow a bit more!!

My front garden SHOULD look like this in a few weeks once things grow a bit more!!

Then my Dad got out Mr. Noisy Backpack Blower and did a bit of clean up around the edge of the woods – those sneaky leaves come tumbling out at every opportunity – every single little breeze pulls them out and makes a mess on MY lawn!  So Dad finished that up, and put Mr. Noisy Backpack Blower in the garage too.

Finally it was MY time!   Mom came in, changed clothes then said “Out??”  and I ran fast as the wind (well, a wind with arthritis anyway) to the front door and out we went!  Lucky me – the sun was shining ON the porch so I just lay there and rolled around and enjoyed the fresh air and sun………….Dad and Mom sat in the rockers and kept an eye on me while I rolled around then went out into the grass in the front yard for a munch.   We were out there for a whole hour!

SUN!!!!!

SUN!!!!!

All the fresh air made me sleepy though so in we finally came……….Dad headed to the basement for a nap, and Mom and I sat in the recliner and she watched baseball while I enjoyed the result of all that nice fresh air I got – A POWER NAP!!!

zzzzz.....snoozin' on Mom's leg....zzzzz

Mom’s watching baseball and I’m watching the inside of my eyelids…zzzzz..

It’s a good thing that we had such a beautiful day yesterday because today we have RAIN in the forecast.   But never fear – the memory of Sunday in the sun will get me through the rain today – definitely…………….

What’s tomorrow????  Just a friendly reminder for those of you who enjoy Tuesday Teaser – be prepared………..I’m trying to find a goodie for you!  Yep – and you know you want to be the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER so you can win this little badge to show on your blog right?

Enjoy your Monday……….rain or shine………it’s a good day no matter what because we’ll MAKE it one.

HAPPY MONDAY!

  2. Rocking on the front porch.. heaven! So glad you got to roll around on those concrete steps all warmed by the sun! CH did some weed wackin’ and leaf blowin’ too. And burned all the old ornamental grasses so the new green could pop up! No fire department was called! We were able to spend a bit of time in the sitting place under the Oaks. Raining here now and rain for this afternoon and tonight.. Happy. So your Mom loves baseball, tell her to keep an eye on our St. Louis Cardinals.. 😛
    Hugs and scritches Sam!

  3. Your Dad has a such a leave-tornado backpack? Wow! We had a leave-eater thingy once too, till… you know, Sammy :o) It was good that you could spend some quiet time outside, I always wonder why humans have only helpers what make scary noises. We have rain too, that’s a perfect laundry-day for mom hehehe

    • Yes, Dad has one of those leaf blowing thingies that gets strapped to his back which HE says works better than carrying something around by hand…..it’s powerful too! After he finished it got quiet again but it’s funny – all afternoon long we could hear “machinery” all around the community. I think everyone had Spring fever yesterday – people even were mowing their lawns and the grass isn’t growing yet!!! Practice maybe…!!! Keep your Dad AWAY from that new washer!

  4. Oh WOW – Congratulations on your Spring cousin. Do you think you can send me some please? We have rain and lots of it. I’m trying to convince daddy to build an ark. It may get to that point. He put floaties on mom’s Smart car this morning when she went to the worky place. XOXO – Bacon

    • Gosh Bacon – I thought we were going to need an ark not too long ago but thankfully being up here on a hill we were saved (frankly I’m not sure my Dad’s all that good at building arks anyway!). Hope your rain doesn’t last long. We have rain today ourselves but I’m still thinking about yesterday’s BEAUTIFUL sunny day so just the thought of it is keeping me warm today!

    • Hi Dezi! Thanks for the tip on Barley Cat – we’ll look it up online….haven’t seen it anywhere but I’m all for something that might be “natural” instead of some kind of drug for my awfuritis! I appreciate knowing about it….Mom tried some kind of special chewie things but our vet said they were “practically useless” for discomfort. I try to be brave though – like a good Cat Scout Troop Leader should!!!!

      Hugs Dezi!

      • Your welkum Sammy. Mommy likes natural fur us tu, and is not tu exspensive. We order frum Vitacost and is usually less den $10.00 and den da s/h but deys only charge like $5.00. Meez finks is ’bout $10.00 on amazon.com. Is a 3 munf supply fur 1 kitty usin’ it. Da pet stores sell it fur like $30.00 and mommy sez dat’s ridiculous. But Lexi has tu hav sumfin, hers gunna be 15 dis munf and she’s a bit over weight and so her joints and bones….. She used tu limp ‘wound like an old gal, but now she’s runs and jumps and has a meowsy great time and keeps up wif meez. 🙂 Hope you like it ifin you twy it and dat it works good fur you. Mommy’s twied sum of those little chewies tu but like your VET sed, deys wus a joke. You’re always a pawsum Cat Scout and nopawdy wuld ever know. 🙂

        • Gosh Dezi that’s very reasonable and my Mom says she will definitely order some for me. I walk a bit funny because I have always had what my vet says is a “wonky knee”….HAHAHA….I’m a bit bow-legged and it throws my walk off a bit and since I’m now 14 I have more trouble than ever sometimes hopping up on things and getting down off things! That barley stuff sounds like the PURRRRFECT thing for me!!! I’ll let you know how I do on it…….as for being a good Scout – when I started my own Troop on Scouts I never dreamed it would get SO BIG and so many other Scouts would join my Troop….I’m so happy you joined the Wildcats – never doubt EVER that you’re a good Scout Dezi because you are…and trust me – everybody loves you so don’t ever think of leaving us OK???

          • Dezi thanks again for the info on Barley Cat……….AND if you EVER EVER EVER need help at Scouts just let me know. Believe me, none of us are really computer smart – we just experiment until we are able to figure stuff out, but on Scouts the most “technical” you get is uploading photos – if you need help with that just let me know OK??? One thing you can count on, Scouts are ALWAYS there to help!
