Sunday Selfie with Shoko

                                                                  I have a great idea for this weeks selfie, mom.  I’ll sit on your lap and snap my selfie,  Easy peasy,,,you’re sleazy!                                                                            What a remarkable neck I have!  Tsk…my collar appears a bit on the dirty side…must’ve rolled on it too much.  It needs washing, mom.  *hint* *hint*

                                                                       What a distinguished face.  Bright blue eyes and  loose hairs stuck on my nose.  Maybe this was a bit too close.  I have no ears either.  This is not so easy after all.                                                                           I look like I’m contemplating the meaning of life….like the Mona Lisa.  I did a little better this time…I have one ear.  I won’t try this way of doing a selfie again.

Do drop by The Cat On My Head and view your buddies or better yet pose yourself and show us how the pros do it.

Kali Hits The Road

I’ve had quite the day my buds.  First thing this morning after breakfast, mom and dad brought me to my carrier.  Oh Lordy, no….I feel spectacular….I don’t want to go to the vets.  Well, my pleas landed on deaf ears and off we went to the *shudder* vets.  The vet was that Dr. Bowman again…Dr. Kalyn is so much friendlier.  Dr. Bowman is just a young whipper snapper…I trust someone a little older with some experience under their pelt.                                               dr. BowmanDr. Bowman gave me the usual exam…tree trunk up my butt, mining light to see inside my ears and I got thrown placed on a scale..  I gained almost a whole pound.  Mom was so happy.  My food allergy has been kicking up so I have scratched a patch of fur from my neck but there are no marks there.  As mom was paying for this insult, dad whisked me to the car.  When mom returned we were rolling on all fours.

 

I headed straight for the food when we got home….I have to work at keeping that pound on my bod…I like to see mom smile and laugh.   After dining on the ham mom rolls up for me…I call them ham rollups.  I know she sticks my arthritis meds in it but I do love ham and most times I can barely taste the meds. MOL

As I was cleaning the ham off my face, mom decided to put me in the stroller.  Now, this stroller has been in the house for some time and I’ve looked it up and down, stepped in it and it doesn’t seem to do anything  so I was happy to get in the stroller but I started to pace.                                                             akarelMom stuck her scarf beside me and I relaxed with her smell so close to me.

Since I seemed relaxed mom decided we needed a walk outside in the fresh air.  I was a little unsure of this idea but I didn’t say anything, just gave mom my, “Really!” look, with huge blue eyes.  She got the message, stroked my furs and chattered away to me as she usually does and I laid down.

aklzmwalkMOL…and we were off in a cloud of horse buns!  Mom walked us to a busy street just as a fire engine was roaring by with siren blaring.   Good grief that was louder than Cow Kitty during a nip attack!

We walked up near the park and fancy that, the city had put a bench out for mom to sit on since she walked Shoko up here.  Someone must have seen her chugging along  and thought she needed some place to sit.  MOL                                                                   akfwkThe smells were awesome.  I loved it and wished we lived closer to the bush.

akswkBefore long it was time to head home.  I finally did it!  I went out for a ride in the stroller.  Shoko can’t tease me anymore about being a fraidy cat. MOL

Have a relaxing evening buds.                                                             Kali and Shoks

 

 

 

A Walk Through The Garden In July

This is a lovely summer’s day.  The temperature is not sweating us out of the house.  The rains have come and gone.  This means no more restrictions on watering with sprinklers.

Come let’s walk through the backyard and view the plants. The first plants we come across are the herbs.  Mom has dried lots of them and is looking to make herbed vinegar and oil.  I told her she doesn’t have the time but she insisted in that way peeps can.

DSCN3642You see the tall herb right in the middle of the barrel….well, that is tarragon and mom is going to put it in wine vinegar.  I wonder if the wine vinegar will taste yucky after she finishes with it.

We are headed to the veggie garden next.  I have fertilized and watered everyday.  Also I have mixed the soil so that bugs don’t have a chance to set up housekeeping.

You will notice in the first row there is cauliflower, 3 of them to be exact.  There are a couple of beets and a few carrots.  I got to aerating the soil and couldn’t help myself and did a witches dance.  The results are only 2 beets remain in that row and there are very few carrots this year.  However, mom got all carried away with the beets and chard in the second row….making up for my boo boo in the first row.  The 3rd. row is all corn and doing very well from all that hot weather we had.  The two last rows are beans and peas.  Notice the sunflowers mom grew from seed.

Come over here my friend and see part of the flower garden.

Right in the middle of the picture are the lavender coloured phlox.  The aroma from the phlox is divine, so mom says….I think it stinks myself.  Beside the phlox, is the new rose mom got as a remembrance of her mom.  Behind the phlox and rose and well protected are 2 huge tomato plants.  Moving to the left, there is the pink hydrangea.  Mom added a chemical compound to the soil to turn the soil more acidy, thereby giving us blue flowers instead of pink.  It didn’t work mom.  There is another big tomato plant behind the hydrangea.  The tomatoes have lots of fruit but they’re not red yet.

Let’s step into the greenhouse for a few moments and see how the crops are doing in there.                                                     You are looking at the 3  pepper plants we got from small transplants.  All 3 have peppers on them.  The one pepper to the right is an Hungarian Sweet Pepper Plant.   Mom thought because of its shape the peppers would be hot and she figures she’s hot enough and doesn’t need those to help her.  Aw mom I didn’t mean to embarrass you!  MOL   You can see the leeks just in front of the peppers and the celery is to the far left.  To the far right and out of sight is the Spaghetti Squash.  Mom has pollinated the squash but no big ones are on the way yet.

Let’s mosey (mousey) back to the deck.

Look who stopped by for a visit, the cow kitten neighbour from next door. He sure is growing.

Ack!  Don’t run at me like that!  Now I need a piddle pad from Dezi of Dezi World’s powder room.  Geesh.  This is not how to make friends!

What’s happening out her Shoko?  Look for yourself Kali, its our neighbour again.                                                         What’s he doing Shoko?  I don’t know….maybe, no it can’t be….biting his tail?  Really?

MOL, Look at his reaction after biting his tail Kali.  MOL.  What a funny guy.
