Signs of Fall Around Fort Meezer

Last night was cold…Kali and I snuggled up with mom instead of leaving the bedroom after our story and treats. It was -7C and we felt quite chilled.  Mom even turned the heat up.                                                     Mom and I went out for a walk in the Lane today.  Fall was in the air.  First, we checked out the backyard.

Woah, the sunflower is looking like the giant fell out!  Wonder where he went?                                               Time to take it down and put the head on the shed roof for hungry birds.

Speaking of the shed, we have two of them now, thanks to dad.                                                           Nice, eh?  The big one is for the snow blower, lawn mower, shovels etc.  The little one is for ornaments and containers for summer.  We’ll see how this works out.  These peeps aren’t the most organized…so we’ll see what spring brings.

The brussel sprouts have had their touch of frost to make them sweeter.                                                       It’s kinda sad….all my work and it’s over for another year. *sigh*

The Lane is looking like it’s seen better days.  Trees have either yellow leaves, a few green leaves or they’re bald.                                           This is the time of year that little critters are up and actively looking for warm homes.                                                      Oh, oh!!  It smells like fresh mouse, right here.  You go ahead mom, I’ll catch up.

The four-legged little beast got away but I know where he lives….mol                                                     

Ya, let’s go see what Kali’s doing at the house.

Where’d those two go…..my tummy says it’s dinner time.

Wonder if it will be cold again tonight.                                                    

Artsy Caturday In the Frozen North

Cwap!!  When is this cold going away?  I’m so bored.  There is nothing to do.  Mom’s busy and hasn’t finished the tree yet…I guess I could help her.  A feral is staying in the house dad built.  He only comes around 4am and disappears before mom and dad get up.  Mom and dad got a heated water bowl for him, kibble and are using Kali’s heating pad under the blanket to keep him warm.                                                           aahouscat1See the ice forming around the top of the bowl?  There is steam coming from the middle of the bowl  Mom put her finger in the water to see if it was too hot but it was cold, cold just warmer than the air.

Get away from me Shoko….I don’t want to play fight.  My nails are drying so think of something else to do.  Isn’t the Flamin’ Tiger color awesome.                                                         aaksfight1Look at the plastic totes around the living room.  Mom could use some sorting of the ornaments.  Good idea…where do I begin….so much to do.  Hey, I could bat these ornaments all over the living room.  Perhaps a game of hockey is due.

Gifts From Across the Sea

The mail lady rang the doorbell….quick run UTB.   Who was the package from Kali? I don’t know ….let me go seeHey, it’s from Easy in France.  Really?  That’s awesome……all the way from France.  C’mon mom, hurry and open it.     Oh look there’s Fozziemum’s picture of a kangaroo on the card.  That’s right Easy won some of Fozziemum’s cards,  Now we have one too.   Flat Shoko will be spending Christmas with Easy and his staff.  Cool!                                                                 Look at the Oktoberfest stuffs.  Woah!  Let me get your picture Kali.  Don’t fidget.

You really suit that hat Kali….you look like a German in your Oktoberfest gear.  Now, let’s see you put more energy into modelling your outfit.                                                                   Better Kali.  At least you’re more awake.

Now for Cow-Kitty:

We had to cheat and pizap his hat on him.  He was very uncooperative.  Doesn’t he look like Harry Potter?  He just needs a pair of glasses.

OK Shoks we’ve all had our pictures done except you.  Your turn.

MOL  Once again you look totally ticked Shoko.  I guess I just look that way Kali.

Dad has a great photo.

Mom doesn’t look so good as a fun loving Oktoberfest person.  She would look much better as a witch with a cauldron.

Notice the pearl necklace she’s wearing.  Sorry but the earrings have Beatrice’s name on them.  Beatrice will be back from her modelling assignment for Christmas.  So we thank you Easy and staff for her.

Mom is looking through the Halloween ornaments for her cauldron. I hear her now…..hahahahahahahahahahahaha

Night all.
