Friday in the Garden

It’s Friday and our seeds are starting to sprout.  Now, dad planted these little green beauties.  Mom is taking a sabbatical in her room and didn’t offer any advice.  This is very unusual as mom has an opinion on just about everything.

We explained to dad that carrots were small and ever so tiny so not too many in one spot.  Let’s see how he did.

The carrots sure are teeny.  A soaker hose is being used for irrigation this year cause when everything grows they spread out.  Then there is no space to water except the tops of plants.

The beets look quite a bit better.
I’ll take it from here Shoks.  Dad put in this barrel for watering last year but I never have seen anyone use it.  It makes a great perch for me to survey the nip patch though.

Out in Kali’s garden are the poppies and bleeding hearts.  I hide in them and Budd tries to find me.  They smell better than a nip appie.                                                               

Have a fun weekend and enjoy your sun patch.

Christmas with Secret Santa on Thankful Thursday

Budd, come!!!  Look Shoko.  Hurry up, mom…I gotta see in there.  What did my Secret Santa Paws bring me…I mean us.                                                             
I’ve been so good….it almost hurts. Ya, I get up and run on the counter. Ya, I do tend to eat whatever’s on the counter. Really, I’m sorry bout lickin’ the turkey. I don’t know what possessed me to do that….*wink* *wink* Something just MADE me do it.  It won’t happen again. It sure tasted good though. Good idea, keep the turkey off the counter.
Onwards to the toys and treats I er…..we got.                                                                 
We got a coil….we never had one before. This one has velvet all over the coil….nothin’ but the best for us. hehe
Mouses!! We got many a mousie.  Budd and Shoko lived it up on a mousie.  There’s nothing like a relaxing game of, “whack a mouse.”

Shoko and Budd are hoarding the mouse so it’s hard to see where the little vermin is…
We’ve never seen a cube before!!                                                                     
Shoko’s favourite treats were in the box all wrapped up pretty like.                                                                    
We got a tunnel too mom and it goes on the cube.  We NEED it, mom.  I don’t think so Tyebe.  You have so much right now.   PLEASE!! OK, OK.  Yippee!                                                            
 Cool!!  I can walk through the jungle and be protected by my tunnel.
                                                          A tunnel!!  I like tunnels.  Go on and play you two and when you’re asleep I shall attack the tunnel.  What’s that a cube on the tunnel too.  I never had a cube when I was a kitten.  You young’uns have such an easy time of things. 

 Thank you so much to our Secret Santa Paws in the cat blogosphere, Linda Rodgers, Savannah and Sage of Savannah’s Paw Tracks.  click on their name and stop by for a visit.

This is also Thankful Thursday at Brian’s Home and we have many, many things to be thankful for.  Go to Brian’s Home Blog and see all your buds.
HAVE A GREAT DAY….I KNOW WE WILL.

Thankful Thursday December 19

What’s this?  Be careful mom don’t drop it,  A humongous parcel and you say it’s for us.  Then really be careful, watch out for my nanner.  Don’t trip over it.

Step aside Tyebe or mom will trip over you.
Who’s it from mom? It’s from your Secret Santa on the blogosphere! Seems the presents are for Shoko, Tyebe and Budd. Well, I’ll be plastered with nip! You got goodies too, mom. You’re right, Shoko!  I’m pretty lucky.  Why is Santa a secret? Probably because he doesn’t want little furries bugging him to see if they can open their presents sooner than Christmas Day.  How’d you know that was what I wanted to do?  Just a hunch.

This is also Thankful Thursday at Brian’s Home so click on the badge and visit the crew over there.                                                                 We are so thankful that our Secret Santa sent us such lovely looking gifts.
I love the box and promise to share.                                                                           
 I can’t believe these presents are for me too.  I’ve not had a Christmas gift since I was a young’un.  Christmas Day is just like any other day on the streets.  Let’s see how he’ll handle Christmas this year. 
We will post after Christmas when we open these wonderful gifts and thank our Secret Santa by name.

Tyebe Tuesday Nov. 20

We got a new, well semi new water fountain today.  I never have used this one but Shoko says her and Kali liked it.  The old fountain had a problem with the filter holder.  The holder would float to the top and rattle against the stainless steel.  Very annoying.                                                         
I guess it’s ok,nothin’ to get all excited about it. Heck, there’s not even any bubbles in it.


This is much more fun. Keep a lookout Budd. Let me know if mom heads this way. Run for it Tyebe here comes mom! Splat! Whoops, I fell off the counter maybe mom never noticed.

Hey, looky here Budd, mom got some reindeer antlers.  I’ll put em on.                                                              
MOL *hic* they kinda slipped but you get the idea.  Me looks charming.

A nice crisp day at Fort Meezer.  Budd won’t come outside and Shoko’s not on speaking terms with me so I have the deck and bucket to meself.                                                                       
You know it’s getting pretty cold out here even with the sun shining. Think I’ll mosy inside and see what’s happening.

We are participating in Happy Tuesday at Comedy Plus Come join us.                                           

Have a great Tyebe Day friends.

Tyebe Tuesday with a Surprise

Shoko and I’s had lotsa fun at Cat Scouts and me’s a Kit Scout now.  When I get my uniform I’ll show everyone.

Today was a relaxing day around Fort Meezer.  Me’s tore a strip off our Halloween black cat.                                                                  He hissed and yowled at me but me’s kept biting his leg.

Then the mail lady came to the door.  Me’s ran to the front door.                                                        Me’s tried to avoid mom as she went to pick me’s up so I wouldn’t run out the door but she finally caught me so all I’s could do was grin at the mail lady.

We got a parcel from New Zealand.  Mom won a prize from Dash Kitten a few weeks back,  I,s helped mom open it.

Me’s was in there like a dirty paw leaving me’s mark all over. What great giftees we got.

We hit the mother lode!  The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa is a most fascinating book and will be read to the whole family at Story Time.  Make Your Cat an Internet Star is the booklet.  I’m not sure if I’s want to be a star maybe Budd wants to be a star although he’s delighted when he gets foods and treats,  All the other goodies you can see.

Thank you so much, Marjorie of Dash Kitten.Com.

Me’s getting hungry for din din so I shall say See Ya.  Till next time my friends.                                                           

Tasty!

Sunday Selfie In The Lane with Budd

It’s a beautiful day for a walkabout in the Lane.  Come on Tyebe and Budd.  Tyebe, mom has to attach the leash before you can leave the property. It’s not fair.  You’s two can romp free without a leash.  That’s cause we’re older and don’t go running everywhere like we went nuts.    Me’s not crazy, Shokos. I’s just curious and very easily excited.                                                       

That’s why you have the harness and leash Tyebe. You won’t have them when you can look out for danger by yourself. Right now you need your mom’s guidance. Me’s will listen to you’s Budd but not so much Shokos cause she gets mad at me’s when I’s leap on her. I don’t blame her Tyebe, you’re a big girl and you bite too.  They’re just ittle love bites.  Bull derm! You’ve tried it with me and they hurt.  That’s why I whapped you on the head.  Oh, that’s why you’s hit me’s. I’s was wondering bout that.                                                          

C’mon let’s go, mom!

The sun is warm.  Look at Budd over in the bushes!                                                    

Me’s think he’s takin’ a selfie, Shokos. Yep, a selfie it is. Today is Sunday selfie day at The Cat On My Head, so he’s prepared.  Click on the badge and visit the other anipals posing for selfies.

Have a sunny Sunday, friends.

Me’s do this when I’s needs to go outside and visit Budd.
