Singing, Painting and Decluttering

 Hello.  This is Emily peeking around the corner.  Mom thinks I look concerned in this photo.  Last week Winston and I (quite rightfully)blamed Mom for slacking off with her blog posts.  There is always an excuse for her.  However, to be fair, work is extra busy and she has been decluttering like a dervish. 
 I would like to point out, Mom, that some of your "busy" are merely you out and about having fun.  Her friend, K, recently celebrated a birthday and they went to paint some pottery.
Mom said she felt like she was in grade school with all the paints!  (Guess what-she accidentally got her fingers covered in paint.  tee hee)
 This is the finished product.  In case you can't decipher Mom's creative efforts this is white birch trees in the winter.
 Do you remember me telling you that Mom has been decluttering like crazy?  Well, guess what?  She discovered a paper bag!  She had hidden it away for future feline fun and then forgot about it!  Winston and I had such fun whapping that thing around!
 Hello, it is Winston now.  Emily is correct.  Mom is out and about a fair bit.  She went to visit a bakery!

 She thought the sign was funny!
Also-she and a friend went to the theatre for interactive performance with Choir, Choir, Choir.

They ended up singing "Mama Mia" by Abba.  Mom said it was a lot of fun.  The only problem was she started humming and singing the song after the performance.  Our poor feline ears.

We should close for now.  Mom wants to declutter some more today.  We try to help her but all she says is "Winston, leave that alone!"  Or "Emily, would you please get out of the cupboard."
Not much gratitude from her!
We will close with this funny from Pinterest!

  1. Winston and Emily, it's always best to allow your human to socialize and get out and about; then you snap your trap closed by looking pitifully at her, and then she'll stay home to cater to your every needs!

  2. How could your Mum not want your help, that's terrible. lol Have a great time helping. I really like your Mum's painting. Purrs from Patch and Flowers.

  3. Winston and Emily! How did I miss getting over here to view your charming beauty! But I'm here now and leaving with a smile. XXX

  4. Your mom did a great job with the painting! If this biped had attempted that, the birch trees definitely would not look so good. :-D

    How disappointing you can't help with the decluttering! But hey, at least you got a paper bag out of it!

  5. I love the painting! I am trying to declutter too. I know we aren't allowed to declutter any kitty items :) XO

  6. The birch trees look purrty good, actually.
    And you got a lovely, crisp, clean paper bag too!
    We think you did quite well out of the decluttering.

  7. Of course those are birch trees! Your mom did a great job painting them. It's difficult to find big paper bags without handles. And it's fun to get in the bag with a little hole in the bottom so you can poke your paw through.
