We are going to be out enjoying the last month of summer up here in the Great White North. We have been Lane walking. The whole gang was out in the fresh air and heat.
I’ll bet you wondered what happened to us. We haven’t posted for awhile. Mom has been busy with harvesting the veggies. Well, all this warm weather has had a great effect on the veggie garden. The peas, chard and beet greens are being frozen for the winter. Beets have been frozen and 2 bags of peas. This took quite the amount of time. We had to pick the peas, shell them and divide the older peas from the tender ones. Granted mom and dad did most of this but I walked through the garden with her. Just so she didn’t mess up the veggies.
What have we been doing while mom and dad are steaming their faces off with the veggies? It has turned cool here so our pool has disappeared. No more fun with the pool. Dad cut our catnip wwwway back and hung the stalks from the ceiling of the deck. Mom will pack the leaves and buds away for our relatives at Christmas. This is still what mom and dad are doing but Kali and I helped with these chores. I sat in the middle of the catnip and yelled in perfect Niponese,”NO!! Not our nip!” Dad didn’t listen but said my voice was very forceful.
No! Down came the nip. Mom said there is another full month of summer, at least, and I’ll be chewin’ on nip again this summer. Nice tender nip too. I like the sound of that mom. Remember that Flat Einstein and Timmy are coming for a visit from Pennsylvania in August.
Kali has not been up to much. She keeps using her stairs in the bedroom. Looking all smug and happy. Today I showed her what I could do with the stairs.
Kali went into the living room and covered herself while laying on the love seat.
