It’s monster day and when Mom was thinking about the fact that it was monster day, she remembered an old 1962 novelty song called “Monster Mash” that was super popular “way back when” – there was even a dance everyone did called the Monster Mash…………..humans are so weird aren’t they???? (hahahaha)
Anyway, we’re cleaning today so I probably will DREAM about helping out while snoring away in my basement. Leave it to the humans to do the cleaning I say. As soon as they’re done I’ll make sure and spread my floof and ginger hair everywhere again – I do what I can you know! Besides, there may be some monsters (in the form of dust bunnies or other scary stuff) under the beds and I’m not in the mood for monsters today!
We had a SUPER windy day yesterday but my dear old Dad was still outside working in the yard while my Mom went to the dentist. Dad had to “re-stack” the stacked stone garden wall around our front garden. Every year the deer plod right through the garden and knock the walls down and every year my Dad re-stacks it………it’s a never-ending struggle! Looks nice when it’s done though!
Mom is getting really ANXIOUS to start doing some planting but until the weather settles down we don’t dare do it……………….usually by now she’s got some stuff planted in the deck planters and she and Dad have mulched the planting beds but not this year………it’s been a real pain in the tushie trying to do anything outside……….maybe in the next couple of weeks. Mom did get a couple of planters of yellow pansies which are hardy enough in case it goes to freezing at night (which it’s still doing once in a while) and they’re on our front porch but THAT’S THAT! Even my two planters of catmint haven’t shown signs of life yet. Mom watered them for the first time yesterday so who knows – purrrrhaps they’ll WAKE UP soon??
Speaking of waking – pardon me while I do anything BUT wake – I’m heading off for a pre-monster mash nap!
