The Broomhildas

Standard

Oh boy………………talk about taking my life in my hands – having the cleaners in on Fridays definitely is doing just that when they are two bulldogs who are bossy and want me to stay out of the way!

Needless to say I do stay out of the way……………….sometimes on the stairs……….sometimes in the guest room……..sometimes in Mom’s room…………even the basement.

Vacuum can't reach up here!!

Or here in the guest room (I'm under the bed)

Or on Mom's bed!

I’m SAFE!!!!!

Mom wants very much to do some cleaning OUTSIDE – which means “mow the lawn” – but with all the rain we’ve had – every single day – she can’t mow………………so we’re hoping at least for a few hours this weekend the sun will manage to break through the rain clouds and let Mom mow at last.

I did have to SHOOOO a few dust bunnies out from under the guest room bed though before I could move in there for a snoozie……….

CLEANINGDUST

I hope you enjoyed seeing our so-called “gardens” in the slideshow yesterday…….the plants are just teeny weeny right now but before you know it they’ll look like something I betcha!   Stay tuned because I plan to update from time to time.    Meanwhile, Mom was looking at some ideas for a new planter to put on our front porch.   Something artsy-fartsy and different…..there are some thrift shops around here and they might have something we can use – aren’t these cool ideas?

Well I hear Mrs. Broomhilda yelling at Mr. Broomhilda to bring the vacuum and stuff UPSTAIRS so now it’s time for me to move DOWNSTAIRS……………wish me luck!

CLEANINGHIDING

Happy Friday Peeps!!  

Hugs, Sammy

    • Oh the ladder and boxes make a GREAT planter………our porch isn’t tall enough for that BUT a small step ladder would work! Mom will put her thinking cap on and if we ever have a non-rainy day she’ll go the Thrift Shop and see what old furniture they have!

    • I think a couple of those photos are from Pinterest……Gracie had sent us the yellow “dresser” which we love and it got Mom thinking about old dressers or even just the drawers as planters. Mom’s gonna check the thrift store.

  3. Those are very cool planters. Your Mom is a great painter and could make even nicer ones. Please send the Broomhildas my way. Hope the sun comes out for you soon. XO

    • We think it’s a totally cool idea too – Mom needs to visit the Thrift store but not today – it’s raining like mad……….YUCK! Have told the Broomhildas you want them – they will come if you pay First Class Air. HAHAHA

    • You have some pretty BOLD squirrels there! Our squirrels stay away from the house (mostly)……but eating your rockers and every plant you put in a pot would certainly discourage ANYONE from giving them private apartments on the porch like they’d find in an old dresser drawer!!!! I’d say your best defense would be an offense…..put buckets of sunflower seeds in a perimeter around your home and keep them filled at all times – no wait – if you forgot to fill them those squirrels would form an army and ATTACK…..

  5. Hiding is a smart move Sammy! If April showers bring May flowers…wonder what Z may showers will bring….probably weeds! Ranked cats, dogs and I think I saw a few fishes whitewater rafting in the Creek

    • Heaven only knows what May showers will bring but so far it looks like the answer is MUD. Lots of it……weeds will certainly be making an appearance whenever the sun decides to shine again (if it ever does!).

  6. I know two more cats who like to clean up the dust bunnies from under the bed while I’m vacuuming. I’d never considered before how much they are actually helping me while they’re running scared…

    • Yeah we do all the clearing out of the space under your bed down the CENTER in the MIDDLE under there where vacuuuuuuuuumators can’t reach. We are the very best dust bunny-eaters EVER!

    • I know! I told them that I happen to know two very non-bossy French bulldogs and they said (and I quote) “Harumph! French bulldogs are not as big and strong and therefore don’t know HOW to be bossy as we “REAL” bulldogs are!!!” (then they said some stuff I can’t repeat because they are NO NO words)……..I think the Broomhildas are meanies!

    • HA! It’s supposed to be like that here too – AND if the rain truly DOES stop on Mother’s Day, my Mom will be out there mowing! She loves to mow so she will consider that her gift….well, I’m giving her a card and Dad and I are giving her flowers together so don’t tell OK Cupcake? I hope you have a break in your rain too – and that your Mom has a SUPER happy Mom’s Day too!

  8. The plants look amazing displayed like that. Thinking outside the square! I like the idea of them elevated like that too particularly for herbs. MUCH less expensive than raised garden beds. 😀

  9. We loved your plants yesterday. We are jealous….we can’t get the plants out yet…it gets down to below freezing at night…bah humbug! The Vacuum is a terror here too. I wonder if its the same vacuum? He sure is loud. Notice…he’s really slow moving so we got him beat…even Kali who is very slow.

    • We have two vacuums – one is lightweight and the other weighs a ton……the lightweight one is NOT as scary and moves quick, the heavy one is slow. I am getting good at dodging both of them! Stay safe – those vacuums like kitty hair!

  10. Sammy, our mom is in love with the chest of drawers planter idea. She has an antique dresser on the upper deck that she keeps things in to take care of the flower pots up there, but she never thought of turning it into a planter. Thanks for sharing this. We love the photo of you on the stairs lounging in the sun puddle! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • Isn’t that a super cool idea for a planter? My Mom can hardly wait to go to the thrift store to get something to make into a planter like that……..If your Mom does it, share a photo will you? If we do it we’ll do the same!
