Window Gazing and Welcome Spring!

Julie: Hi mum, Where are you going?
To the kitchen Julie.
Oh boy! I'm coming too!

I love to sit in the kitchen window.
It is nice in the early morning too.
I especially like that I left some crunchies from earlier.
Mum puts them here when I don't finish eating them at breakfast.

I like to look out of the window too.

This was the view I saw.
See that broken tree?

Last Tuesday night we had a big storm.
It started as snow then changed to rain
 and the winds were super strong.
The wind caused the  tree to break.
Mum thinks a lot of the trees were stressed as 
we had a very dry Summer.
That makes 3 big limbs from trees that have broken during
storms this Winter!
That may not be a good thing when Summer storms come along.

This Monday we welcome Spring !
WooHoo! We purr the temps get warmer soon.

Julie's Kitchen Window

Julie: I live to sit in the kitchen window in the morning.

Mum puts out bird seed and I get yo watch Bird TV.

If you look closely, you can see the little birds.
Sometimes we get bigger birds including ducks.
My friends over at Trout Towne say mum should
not spend money on birdseed, but on cat treats.
Well, if mum wants to buy bird seed, she netter buy lots of cat treats !
As long as I have my treats mum can do whatever with her money.

All this talk of food is making me hungry!

This window also makes a great dining area.

Read to Me

One of the things mom did a lot last year, was read. I love it when she reads. I get lap time.

I don't even mind that she balances her book on me while she reads. It's all about being in mom's lap. Sometimes, she reads out loud from the book she's reading. I don't get what she's talking about, but she gives nice ear scritches when she's reading.

She does complain that I get cat furs all over.

Pffft. Every book should have cat fur in it. It adds to the value.

So, this is How the Weekend Went Down by Julie

Julie: Mum said it would be sunny on the weekend.

She was right, it was sunny.

Oh, but it was colder than she said!!

It was too cold on the porch, so I stayed in the house.

Mum braved the cold to do out.
She had to pick up JJ's meds from the Vet.
On the way past the lake,she saw these geese.

In the water!
Can you believe that?
It's freezing outside!

On the other paw...the snow continues to recede!

Mum, let me know when it seriously warms up !

Moooo-ooom! He's on My Side of the House

I know you haven't heard from us in awhile. Life's been kind of chaotic. Mom worked a lot and she didn't have a lot of free time, nor, she said, inspiration for writing. I don't understand that. I should be all the inspiration she needs.

Things changed in the summer in a big way. Mom left Mija and I to take a "vay-kay-shun", whatever that is. We just know that this guy came over and fed us every day. He's okay. He knows how to open cans.

When she came back, she brought something with her.

His name is "Hamlet". He's little, or he was back in July. She said a friend of hers found him in a drain pipe trying to stay above water. That friend couldn't find him a home so mom said he could come live with us. Did she ask us? No. She said he rode back from Virginia under the front passenger seat of the car.

Well, I'm not sure about this. I try to have my own space but he finds me.

He has so much energy and a dignified lady like myself, just wants to amble through the house, sit on mom's lap and NOT be chased. I like to sit in the sunshine. I'm not interested in sharing it.

It seems Mija and I don't have veto power over whether he lives here so I guess we have to get used to this. Harumph.

(Mom's note:  Don't let her fool you. This was last week.

For all her haughtiness, Pilchard has gotten used to Hamlet faster than Mija has. I keep trying to get a video of the two of them playing, but she's wise to the sound of the camera. Mija still complains but Pilchard goes out of her way to find him when she wants a wrestle. The best part, having a kitten in the house has improved the health of both of them. They were a bit on the chunky side, but are now down to optimum weight, thanks to playing chase. He's also a love bug and they have noticed. I get both of them in my lap at night when I get home from work. Pilchard taught him about the camera. He knows it and ceases to be cute when I point it at him. Darned cats.)
