Iced Tea and Exposed fluffy tummy weather

 Happy Labor Day all!   We hope you had an extra day off and that you are able to rest.   The Mum was busy with errands and cleaning but we tried to make sure she relaxed a bit, too.   Remember how Winston recently had a birthday.  Well, I'm the one who got a present.   TA DA....
This blanket!  It is super soft.   One of my favorite spots was recently tidied up and Mom decided to make it more comfy with this blanket for me.  Don't worry, though, as Mom is still trying to figure out what to get Winston.   She might have to go to a pet store for his present and that is an extra long bus ride for her.
 Purrs to all from Emily.  It is much too warm and humid here so I make sure my tummy is exposed to any and all breezes from the fans.  Phew!   The Mom is making lots of her homemade iced tea in this weather.
This was an iced tea she ordered at a restaurant.   It was called white cranberry iced tea and she said it was delicious:ice cold, tart and a bit sweet.
 Head nudges now from Winston.   I'm trying to give Mom the hint that her jewelry box needs tidying.  Her great uncle made it for her several years ago and she keeps all her rings, bracelets and necklaces in here.  She finally tidied it up and felt like she had finally accomplished something to stroke off her "to do" list.  Little does she realize that it was my subtle feline hypnosis that prodded her into action.

There are small signs of fall...but it's much too hot and sticky now. Mom had really been wanting to walk over to cafe to pick up a pumpkin spice muffin.  When she heard today's weather report, though, she decided to make up another pitcher of iced tea and have a slice of banana bread instead.   *I could tell she was disppointed about NOT getting a pumpkin muffin.
I will close for now.  We hope everyone has a nice week!

  1. We can imagine! Our mom told us it was elebenty billion degrees here yesterday with loads of humidity. She didn't do much outdoors either!

  2. Sounds like you all had a furry good weekend. Nice blanket Oscar!

    We'd send you some of our cools if we could.

  3. You all seem to be managing okay. We don't have air conditioning either and none of us has much energy. Our biped says the cranberry iced tea looks wonderful!

    Purrs and peace,

    Nicki, Derry and Kim

  4. Went out for a walk last night, and my clothes were soaked with perspiration! Am debating whether I should go out tonight; the storm front is still hours away. Hope you find a wonderful beddy for Winston, as good as the one that Oscar received!

  5. Good that you all enjoyed the long weekend :)
    It has been hot here in NS too! It may cool off as we are to get rain Tuesday.
    Winston, we purr you get a nice b'day present soon ;)
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  6. Arthritic kitties still love cosy blankies even when the thermometer says "phew... it's hot".
    We have fans, and we have ice in our water,but it's too floppy to do any playing..except Mummy Janey wants to play catnip bubbles (it's her new favourite thing).

  7. poor Winston. He needs a present! You could always order something for him online and then you wouldn't have to worry about the long bus ride (wink)

  8. That is a great blankie, you are a lucky kitty. Very hot here today too- that iced tea looks good.
