Winston and Emily and the Much Too Exciting Weekend

 Good Monday purrs from Winston.  I hope you had a relaxing weekend!  Emily and I had a lot of excitement the past three days.  Phew.  We may need to take extra naps to make up for it!
First off our Grandmom and Mom's sister came for a visit.  Grandmom had a birthday!
 This is the present our Grandmom got from Mom.  It plays The Wind Beneath my Wings when you open the lid.  Emily and I thought it was rather dull.  However, Grandmom seemed to like it! 
After presents were opened they went out for breakfast and shopping.
 Our Mom bought Grandmom a brownie for breakfast, partly as a joke and partly to treat her for her b-day.   Only, guess what?!   Grandmom ate it right away.  Even before they got their breakfast order.
What is that saying?! Eat dessert first. 
Emily and I certainly eat our treats first!
 Our Mom also had a dentist appointment on Friday.  It's a long walk for her almost 4 km!  On the way back, she took a wood path to try and chill out. She saw this butterfly!  What you can't see is the NO Trespassing Sign.  Tsk Tsk Mom.   She cropped the photo to make the butterfly bigger and to get rid of the sign.  Who knew our Mom was such a rebel.  (Mom here-the path was for public use, I think it was just the bushy wooded area on the sides of the path!)
 Purrs now from Emily!  Guess what else happened this weekend?  We had a tornado warning.  Mom had started her laundry when they ended the severe thunderstorm warning.  Only when she came back up to her apartment the screen was red for the tornado warning.   The lady on the weather network said people in our area should take cover!  And now kitties, the worst is that Mom corralled Winston and I and put us into the bathroom with water and kibbles.   I, Emily, was not happy and led Mom a merry chase before she caught me.  We live in an apartment and don't have access to a basement (it's locked)  The lady on the tv said to go to a small interior room with no windows.   That Mom...the nerve of her!!
 ....then MOM went outside with her camera. Mom said she claustrophobic!
 Thankfully, though we had two tornados touch down, an F0 and an F2, none came close our building.   Winston and I are enclosing this inforgraphic(from Pinterest) for your safety!  Did your humans ever force you to be safe!
Is all of this too exciting for you?
Mom did boring stuff, too.  She watched the new Snoopy movie from a library DVD.
 Mom says between tornado warnings and the news these days a little Snoopy goes a long way!
 This is an inspirational quote that is also from Pinterest!
Winston will close off for today.   Here he is not stressing about the weather or the world.  He is only enjoying his tiny corner of it!

Purrs from all of us that you have a lovely week!

  1. Oh my, tornados are scary! Happy Birthday to your grandmother, kitties! And I'm bummed; I haven't seen a single Monarch butterfly all summer, even though I've planted all kinds of milkweed plants for them. But a neighbor says that he gets a lot of Monarch's, so at least I know they are around.

    1. There haven't been many here, either. We have seen lots of those tiny white ones, though.
      Thanks for visiting!
      Purrs,
      Winston and Emily

    1. Thanks Whiskerattie! Since it was Grandma's b-day the Winston kitty let her cuddle him for almost an entire minute. He was willing to relax his usually strict rule about no-cuddles for a birthday!
      Thanks so much for visiting.

  4. That might have been a bit too much adventure, particularly the tornadoes! We're glad your mom made sure you guys were safe, but SHE should know better -- she needs to be safe too. Anyway, all was okay, so enough said. :-)

    Happy belated birthday to your Grandmom. Our biped says anyone who will eat a brownie for breakfast is a person after her own heart. Ha.

    The butterfly is lovely, btw. We get a lot of moths in our back space, but not so many butterflies, not the right plants to attract them. That walk would have been lovely. We hope your mom's dental was something regular, not surgery.

    Purrs to you all for a great week ahead!

  7. OMC, we're sure glad the tornadoes didn't get too close to your house. We're pretty sure we wouldn't enjoy hanging out the bathroom either.

    Happy belated birthday to your grandmom bean!
