Soup and Snuggle Weather

 Hello!  Winston here.  I'm staying warm and cozy cuddled up in the laundry basket of warm clothes.   It has become very wintery here! Mom is aghast!  She thinks it is much too early for snow.

 On Monday morning she decided, at the last minute, to wear her boots to work.  Thankfully!  The sidewalks were clear on the walk to work but a snowy mess on the walk back!
 Contented hello from Emily.  Winston and I get to snuggle down when it is cold and snowy.  Hooray!  We let the Mom do all the walking for errands and the like.

It has been so wintery that Mom has made 2 big pots of soup in the last couple of weeks.  She said it really hits the spot after a cold walk home.

Fur Nerd Approved!

 Hello!  Winston here.  I am doing double duty as a cupboard inspector.  Mom did several chores during her vacation that she normally would not have had time to do!  One of her tasks was to tidy the kitty food cupboard!  I say she did a good enough job!

Mom finally got me a birthday present: the nip nanner! Emily and I both love it!   I tried to decimate it the moment Mom put the toy down in front of me.
 The Mom was grateful to have time to walk in a nearby park.  She said it was relaxing.
However, there was one walk I didn't find serene....the walk to see my vet, Dr. B.
I yowled and complained the entire walk down.  Mom was impressed by my vocal range.
 This photo is me resting my vocal cords.  Also, Mom said I was heavy.  Dr. B said that I looked younger than my 14 years!
 Here are some happy cookies that Mom's family had at their Thanksgiving get together.  Here in Canada  Thanksgiving is in October.
 Hello now from Emily.  I am enjoying a spa moment from the comfort of the dining room table.
Winston and I were not the only ones to get a little something.  Mom found a pair of ankle boots to wear during the cooler, but not the winter, months.

Mom thought this bird looked a bit like a cormorant.   It did not look like the regular ducks, geese and swans at the park lake. Any ideas? She is sorry that the photo is so fuzzy!

Winston and Emily Work Overtime!

Purrs from Winston AND Emily.  We are trying to help Mom study at the dining room table.  Trust us when we say she needs all the help she can get!   So--the Mom is on vacation!
 See!  Winston kitty demonstrating what she should do on her vacation!
 Emily also giving an example of how to relax during her time off!
 Mom thinks she is so funny!   She was very excited!
 She walked almost 5 miles to pick up her favourite tea!  So now she can slurp (sip) tea while reading her newest book!
 Mom has read one other book by this author.  She said the writing is beautiful.  The story is set during the second world war and follows the lives of several people trying to survive the Nazi regime.  Mom says it is not always easy to read but that it is worth the effort.
 Mom's vacation socks were ready for her to put on when she got home from work on Friday night.  She celebrated with frozen pizza and a can of root beer.  Mom tries to stay away from pop but she made an exception this one time!
 Mom is hoping to get started on that scarf soon.   We can tell she is starting to wonder if she can actually do this project.  Well, Mom, you bought the yarn and the knitting needles.  We think you better get it a try!
 Mom went on her first autumn park walk this morning.  She loves the changing leaves.
 The warm glow of colour all around her.
 Mom said it looked like this tiny sparrow was trying to say hello!

Sleepy Emily

 Hello from Emily.  I am resting against Mom in this photo.  It may shock you to know that being a cat is exhausting work!
 The leaves are slowly starting to turn colour.  Sometimes it was so chilly at night that Mom put on another blanket.  Only now we are getting summer temperatures again.
 Mom had a picnic in the park earlier this month with one of her sisters and her Mom.  It rained...a little bit...but they still had a nice visit.
 Hello from Winston.  I am still patiently waiting for a fabulous birthday gift from Mom.  I am a very patient feline.  I can wait.

Mom will be having a few weeks of vacation soon.  In anticipation of that, she purchased 2 skeins of yarn.  She saw a simple tutorial for a scarf online.  This is the yarn she bought.  Emily and I think she is more entranced with the pretty colours and the soft texture of the wool than the reality of knitting.  Keep your paws crossed that she finds it relaxing!
 We will close with this funny from Pinterest.   Mom is tired most of the time and we hope her upcoming vacation will, hopefully, give her more energy.  We hope everyone is doing well.

"King for a Day"

 Hello all!  Guess who had a birthday on September 2?  Yeah, that is right!  Me!  Winston Kitty! 
Guess who forgot my birthday again?  *** MOM***   She barely managed to save the day because Facebook reminded her.  Hmmpff...every year.   She really needs to organize her time better.
To make up for her lack of birthday presents, I was spoiled outrageously.   I received extra cat treats, brushes, lavish compliments and a promise of a lovely gift.

 Mom found this mug in Wal-Mart recently.  It makes her ridiculously happy.  She uses it for tea AND hot chocolate.
 Mom was told that to see a butterfly is a sign of hope for good change.  Mom sure hopes so.
 These are Mom's vacation socks.  She said she needs to get them ready for her 2-week vacation next month.  The app on her phone says there are 32 days left.  Well...it counts down the hours, minutes AND seconds too.

Winston and Emily say Hello

 Hello.  Winston kitty taking a small nap.  I had a very upset tummy recently.  Of course, it was right before Mom had to leave for work.   So when Mom called the vet later Dr. B suggested that Mom take away my food!  What!  No food for 12 hours.  I didn't let a little thing like kitty puke stop me from eating...so I was a bit perturbed to see my bowl taken away.  I also made sure to make sad eyes at Mom while sitting right next to the empty bowl. 
 Good day from Emily.  You should know that Mom has given us back the food.  Also-she has not seen, so far at least, any indication of a kitty puke. 
Mom called the vet back with the results this morning.  Please keep your paws crossed.
