SHOKO…..BLACK
MOM…..MAROON

I will do the first two sentences.

  1.  THE SNOW…..keeps me…..AWAY FROM THE VEGETABLE GARDEN.  OR I WOULD BE OUT THERE SCRATCHING UP THE SOIL TO GET THE AIR MOVING IN IT AGAIN.                                             AWW…..I HAVE DREAMS OF THE SOFT AND WARM DIRT.

2  HERE A SCRATCH THERE A TINKLE is the secret to ….. THE VEGETABLE GARDEN.

Your turn mom.
3. A friend…..IS SOMEONE THAT WILL VISIT REGARDLESS OF HOW DEEP THE SNOW IS.                                               

4. Right now, I am thankful…..IT’S NIGHT TIME AND I CAN GET INTO MY HOUSECOAT AND SLIPPERS.     

        NO PICTURE OF ME LOUNGING ABOUT.

 

Thankful Thursday

Is that…?  Well, I’ll be snookered.  It’s Juno from next door.  I haven’t seen hide nor fur of her all winter but today she’s deemed it’s warm enough to step outside.                                                       What a wee tinkle head she is.  She better stay away from the sprouting nip.  I tell you, I’m not feeling patient.                                                Good, the fuzzed one is heading inside, she jumped through an open window!  Hey, mom has screens on all our windows so I can’t jump in and out.  Not fair!!  This is striking material, mom.

Dinner time!  Tonight’s menu includes salmon feast, Shoko.                                            Salmon!!  My favourite.  That was close mom.  I was getting ready to strike but salmon is a real peace-offering.  I forgive you mom…for now.

Thursday is Thankful Thursday at Brian’s  Home blog and I’m tellin ya, I’m thankful for salmon feast.  It is so tasty and fishy.                                                       Tell us, what are you thankful for today?  Click on Brian’s Home blog and join the blog hop.                                                 mol

Shoko’s Selfie Sunday

The Cat On My Head is hosting our selfies this fine Sunday.  I had trouble getting my selfie this week as mom called my attention to some shredded plant that was hanging out near my cat pole.  I don’t know everything that goes on in this joint.  Geesh!                                   

I must focus on my selfie. This dang remote is stuck. Oh for cat feathers. c’mon…whoops *click*. Oh, my I was taken by surprise. 

The camera caught me rolling my eyes!  MOL

Have an awesome Sunday my friends.

 

Thankful Thursday

What the cat feathers is that racket!  Sounds like someone’s trying to remove the house from its foundation.  Um..?  What are those guys doing, mom?  Oh them?                                                 

The city thinks we’ve had snow long enough and they’re going to remove it.  Why?  Peeps and anipals are getting depressed and sad cause all they see every day is snow and then more snow.                                                    

Where do they take it, mom? Nobody but the dump truck driver knows. Also one person from the city. This is our Spring Shoko.                                                  

Really??  Then I am Thankful for the City’s efforts in bringing Spring to us.  Brian’s Home is celebrating Thankful Thursday so go to Brian’s Home and view the other anipals that are Thankful this Thursday.

I Spy With My Little Eye…

I was just sittin’ on the deck.  The part without snow.  The sun was warm on my side.  I spotted some hooligan trying to get at my nip and said a silent curse under my breath.  Apparently, mom heard my silent curse so I wasn’t as silent as I thought.  She came runnin’ out, slipped and hobbled back into the house.  No words, or nothin’!  Next, I saw the introoder leaving the nip patch…the nip hasn’t grown enough to raid. mol  Get outta here you sucker!                                                        

Yep, it was snowing again but not much.  I spied a feathered fiend on my steps.  He was not completely black and I was at a loss….what is this thing?                                                      

Enjoy your day my friends.

Sunday Selfie with Sleepy Shoko

The Cat On My Head is the host for our blog hop of selfies.  This is no surprise as they do this every Sunday.  They are just really good furries that love our company. Come by and visit with us.  Simply click on the blog host name and join us.                                              

I was unsure of my selfie as I just woke up after a short siesta, 4 hours of undisturbed relaxation.
No, no, no! Not when I first wake up. I have sleep in my eyes. You sound like Kali, Shoks. Guess I do…she was my teacher.

Here’s my nanner! I was sitting on it.                                                             
This is more like it. My nonchalant, “Well, hello there friends” look

May your Easter Sunday be filled with chocolate eggs and bunnies.
