Spring Fever

Sam grazing on the grass

What a great day for nibbling the grass and catching some "rays" !

What a pretty day it was yesterday!  The sun was out, there wasn’t much of a breeze, and there was no sign of the mean old cat from next door to bug me so I asked “pretty please” to go out.  It was great.  The grass isn’t really growing yet so it was tough finding a few long blades but I did so I was able to have my “greens”!  Mom sat on the front porch and kept an eye out for me while I went down the sidewalk checking for anything edible……I got to the driveway by the garage and the UPS guy’s noisy old brown truck came down the main road and stopped – then turned up MY driveway!  That’s when I high-tailed it back to my porch with Mom running behind me.  She knows how much I hate company and when I see anyone coming up my driveway – it’s time to go hide!!!    Mom and I came inside quickly and I went to my safe place in the basement while she looked out the window and sure enough he had stopped about a third of the way up – and backed back down (wrong address I suppose). 

That was about the extent of the excitement around here on Friday.  Other than of course the “MONSTER”  (Mom’s vacuum cleaner) was on the loose because it was housecleaning day…..

Anyway, being outside on such a pretty day makes me remember that it won’t be long before I’ll be asking to go outside a LOT more because spring will be here.  Mom will be planting stuff in the gardens and the grass will be growing just right for my snacking and birds will be building nests so there will be lots to watch from my various perch locations in the house. 

However – before we get to all of that, we have to finish winter and the weather guy says Sunday we could get a BIG dose of winter.  He’s not sure yet (of course) but we could get anywhere from an inch to a foot of snow.  Good grief!   I guess I’ll be thinking back to today and how nice it was to at least THINK about spring……………….sigh………………

Happy Saturday Peeps!

Enjoying the yard and the nice fresh air!

Things are back to normal in my yard!

Well, Mom and Dad did a great job of cleaning all the stuff out of my yard after Irene.  So that’s that!  We’re moving on to bigger and better things now – like cooler weather and leaves changing.

Mom and I are thinking about changing the look of my blog.  If you visit me in the next few days and see something DIFFERENT, don’t be too surprised!  We may try out a few different looks before we decide to change – or not.  I like the colors on my blog right now but change is good as my wise friend Merlin said on Cat Wisdom 101 this morning!   Let me know what you think when you check us out OK?

I might even let my Mom have a whole page on my blog just so she can show off some of her paintings and photos!  Old Mom is pretty good to me so it’s the least I could do for her.  We need to take good care of our humans like they take good care of us.

The sun is supposed to shine all day so I’ve got my visor ready and my favorite spot on the sunny stairs picked out…..inside and out, I’ll be set to go!

Sam in his visor and sunglasses!
Bring on the sun!

Hope you have a super, duper day fellow cats (and your humans!)
