This should be an cat Olympic sport =)
Lucy and Oscar demonstrate synchronized bathing.
I'm heading outside to take some photos of our most recent snow storm. It looks very pretty. I'm sure it's messy, though.
Hope everyone is having a lovely day!

Yesterday morning I met a friend for a tea and a brownie (I am on vacation after all!) We chatted for almost 2 hours =) It feels so lovely to not have to rush. She and her hubby are leaving for a trip to warmer climes in the next bit. Why on earth would she want to leave all this beautiful white stuff!

The List and Tea

Puzzled Oscar
 Good morning, peoples.  It's Oscar kitty today.  Yesterday, Winston, told you about our crazy Mom.  First day of vacation and she makes out a to-do list of chores.  Winston attempted to demonstrate the correct way to relax but she still went through her list AND added a few more things as well.  She did, though, take a tea break.  She loves this tiny porcelain set. Mom even ventured into the cold blustery day to pick up a cinnamon scone.

No day is so bad it can't be fixed with a nap. ~Carrie Snow

Winston kitty here! Today is the first day of Mom's vacation. Know what that crazy woman went and done? Made a to-do list.
She's nuts! Very sad. I will try and show her by example what a successful vacation really should be like.

Lucy kitty here. Mum just found out that she is finally going to get her vacation! The date has been changed at least 7 times, through circumstances beyond her control, and she now gets to plan her vacation with less than a week to the start date. I told her if she had trouble with finding something fun to do she could give me a tummy rub.
Right here, Mum! I need a tummy rub!

"NO, Winston, Cupid is not a bug.
You may not swat him.
You are NOT allowed to eat him!"
Happy Heart Day, peoples!

(Chocolates are gonna be half price on the 15th!  Woo hoo!!)

Snow Day!

Friday was a snow day!  I felt like I was an elementary school kid again  =)
Instead of staying inside, sensibly warm, and with a kitty by my side.
I ventured outside into a winter wonderland of cold, snow and wind!
The snow was deep--about mid calf.  My boots only cover just past my ankle   =)
I wore my sunglasses to protect my eyes from the snow-it was a bit fierce.

I love taking photos but my fingers were starting to go numb with the cold.  I found a tiny little cafe to duck into for a moment.
The lady was very kind and allowed me to drip snow water on the floor while I thawed out.  I purchased a very yummy muffin and then headed back out into the "wild" winter weather.

I could tell the kitty brats were thrilled to see me back home-safe and sound.  I felt I deserved a nap after all that!
 Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Cat Owner's Prayer

Cat Owner's Prayer by cherithsky
Cat Owner's Prayer, a photo by cherithsky on Flickr.
Because I'm only human,
It's sometimes hard to be
The wise, all-knowing creature
That my cat expects of me.

And so I pray for special help
To somehow understand
The subtle implications
Of each proud meowed command.

Oh, let me not forget that chairs
Were put on earth to shred;
And what I like to call a lap
Is actually a bed.

I know it's really lots to ask
But please, oh please, take pity;
And though I'm only human,
Make me worthy of my kitty!

Negotiations (Winston and Oscar play hard ball!)

"Hand over the kitty treats, lady, and we stop using the sofa as a scratching post!"
Never a dull moment !
Hope you are all having a good week!

It's beautiful outside this morning. The landscape covered in soft, snowy white. I'm heading out to do errands and this afternoon is class.   Back to work again tomorrow!

The kitty brats sending greetings  =)
"Mom, why are you going outside today?  That's just crazy!"

"Yeah.  Stay home.  Take a nap!"

"No, Mom.  Someone has to brave the elements and pick up our kitty kibble.  I'll stay here one the counter and guard the fort while you are gone."  

Stay warm and safe today, peoples!
