A Purrrfect Ginger Triangle

Standard

Thursday!  YAY!  This is our weekly changing the sheets morning so you know I helped out as always……uh huh……if you believe that my Mom says she’s got a bridge she wants to sell ya! (hahaha)

Sam Preventing Mom From Making The Bed

Oh…hi Mom…thought you’d left…thought I’d keep the old sheet company until you brought the fresh sheets in to make the bed!

Yesterday my parents worked on the woodland trail project.  Dad raked along the sides of the path and Mom planted some ferns and coral bells (whatever they are) and tomorrow’s blog will have some updated photos for those of you who have been watching.  The hardest part of the project remains though – Dad having to make up his mind what to put ON the trail (stones, mulch, WHATEVER). 

After my Mom finished outside and came in, got all cleaned up and fixed some iced tea, she plopped down at her desk in her studio and I decided to join her.   I thought I’d try to “blend in” to the room a bit so I didn’t distract her from what she was doing.  Do you think I did a pretty good job?

Symmetry? Definitely!

Mom thought it was pretty clever of me to find just the right spot to curl up! 

Also, I want to say HAPPY FLAG DAY!  We have a flag waving on our mailbox post and almost everyone in our neighborhood has a flag either on their front porch or on their mailbox post.  Pretty cool huh? 

Hope you all have a great day today…..I’m going to go shopping for Father’s Day – I’m not sure what to get my Dad – he’s got EVERYTHING including the bestest thing of all – ME ! So I’m not sure what to get.  Maybe I’ll just ask Mom to go out and see if she can find something for him.  I’m not the best shopper in the world – I usually focus on cat treats at the store instead of other stuff.  Something tells me cat treats just wouldn’t “do” for my Dad.  😀

See you tomorrow!

Kitty Hugs, Sammy

 

Quiet Sunday Thoughts From Sam

Standard
My Mom's Art Studio

Is that me on Mom's couch in her studio????

No, you’re not seeing things…..that cat pillow DOES look a lot like me.  Mom keeps this on top of the couch in her studio – just waiting for the day I hop up there and stand NEXT to it so she can take “our” picture.  Don’t hold your breath Mom….not gonna happen! 

On the wall are some of her paintings…..Mom likes to paint stuff like lighthouses, old houses, old cabins – but she doesn’t like to paint people OR cats!  Nope.  She says it’s hard for her to capture people in paintings (capture?? Like a cage or a trap?  Huh?).   She knows lots of really good artists though who paint people and animals.  I guess taking a picture is close enough to capturing for my Mom.  I think I can understand that.

Today is a funny old day.  Mom says it’s a day of remembering.  I’m only 11 and a half years old so I don’t have as much stuff to remember as Mom and Dad do.  Still, I can remember being in a little wire cage at the shelter and wondering why I was there.  I can remember two humans coming up and staring in at me while I played with my little plastic ball with a bell in it – and I remember the shelter lady taking me out of the cage and handing me to the two humans…..they oooohed and aaaaaaahed and hugged me and said I was adorable.  Then, they took me home with them and I’ve lived happily ever after. 

Remembering is a mixed blessing…..some sad things and some happy things all rolled into one.  Let’s all spend the day remembering.

Happy Hugs to all my friends!
