Sun-Filled Monday

Standard

Oh my friends – I had the most glorious, sun-filled weekend after my whine-fest over all the rain last week and I’m still feeling HIGH AS A KITE because today is going to be sunny too.  Three whole days of the nicest sunny days ever.  Coolish, sunny, breezy – just about as good as it gets.

Sunny front porch.....YAY!

Sunny front porch…..YAY!

 

Nice to stop and smell the roses....I mean mums!

OR if I’m in the back yard I get the sun OR shade!

That’s exciting because you may know that Washington, DC and the ‘burbs get ridiculously humid in the summertime.  “Can’t catch my breath” kind of humid.  Maybe not as humid as the jungle but pretty danged close!   Those are the days that I stay inside in the AC.    Out here in the “country” away from the big city is where in the old days all the gentrified folk from Washington, DC would hop in their carriages and head to for a breath of fresh air and some relief from the humidity of town.  That’s right – they’d ride out HERE to escape.  Well the people in DC still ride out this way and further up to the mountains to escape but it’s not just from the heat – it’s from the BIG CITY PERIOD!!!   We’re on a main route up to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and the gorgeous Shenandoah Valley so when things heat up in town, everyone heads out here.

Blue Ridge Mountains and COOL air - everyone heads there on a hot day!

Blue Ridge Mountains and COOL air – everyone heads there on a hot day!

I don’t have to escape……….nope – all I have to do is stay right where I am – living the good life with Mom and Dad………..if it’s too humid I stay inside……if it’s nice enough to be outside I just go a few steps and I’m there – no car trip to the country for me………………….I’M ALREADY THERE!!!!!

Sam in Library

I can be INSIDE in the A/C and still enjoy the sun in the library!

Have a sun-filled Monday (or if you need rain, may you get WET today).   AND – whatever you do – don’t forget tomorrow is Tuesday Teaser and we have another GUEST TEASER for you!!!!  Another toughie?  Probably!   So make sure and be ready at 6AM EST to guess – who knows – you might be FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!

Hugs,

Sunny Sammy

 

P.S.  Another birthday?  Yes indeed…..my pal Odin at Cat Wisdom101 is celebrating his today so stop by and wish him well!!!

    • Hi Dezi!!! I didn’t know you also got super humid weather there but I guess we all have to put up with a bit of “STICKY” when we have the heat of summertime. We’ll just STAY COOL inside right?? The mountains are always at least ten degrees cooler than here where I am so that’s why everyone heads up there in the summer. Mom and Dad have woods in the backyard and it’s also cooler in there so they put a bench down in the woods and we all go there sometimes too! So this week we’ll be able to visit on Scouts again – isn’t that exciting? See you there (and here!!!!!!)

      Hugs, Sammy

The sun is shining here as well and I think we’ll take advantage of that with some “out time” before the rain returns for the rest of this week……..have fun with your Mom-person Charlie and in case you haven’t heard – Denmaster says Cat Scouts is on the road to recovery!

  8. Hey Sammy, those sun puddles sound very good and look even better. Your backyard is like a park and I would love to visit one day but alas you are way too far from me. I wouldn’t make it to the next town without a melt down. Enjoy your time in the sun with your mom or sometimes its even better alone….you can see more stuff that way. You will be very busy once Cat Scouts starts up again. Head bongs to you and your mom.

Yes indeedy – Denmaster has a message on the front page when it pops up – there are some databases that have to be restored but you can go and post and comment and upload pix and see your old buddies coming back slowly but surely…..Looks like we’re back at Easter time with the old posts but even THAT will be fixed soon…….anyway, please spread the word – I think we’re going to try and have a big old pot luck at the Campfire to celebrate getting back to Scouts…..stay tuned……!! See you there soon……oh and make sure and get there without using an OLD link you might have. Go to http://catscouts.com and I’ll see you there!!

  14. Sammy, we know you are so happy that your humans did not move from the country you love to that condo. The last few days have been pawsomely gorgeous here as well. Mom hates the humidity so has been a happy camper the last few days. We think thunderstorms are supposed to start tomorrow which means that oppressive humidity will be back. Mau is so glad that Scouts is becoming functional again as we know you are as well. He says that he’ll see you there.
