Finally Friday!

Georgia:   It is finally Friday and we are so happy
as mum will be home with us.She is happy too
as it was a "long week".
That's human talk for "very busy'.
Anyway, all of us are looking forward to
relaxing and snuggling!
Good thing too as we are expecting major rain this evening!
25-30 millimeters (about 1-1.5 inches)
Mum hopes it will remove lots of the snow and ice 
in our driveway .

We even posed for pictures!
Here is mine.

JJ loves to pose for pictures!

Julie does not love posing.
She loves making mum work for her pics !

One think we all love is having FUN!!!!!!!!!!!

Monday Musings with Georgia

Georgia: We had a pretty good weekend. 
The weather was pretty good too and lots of melting
happened though mum said  there was a little bite
in the breezes.It is supposed to be sunny all week!
Mum hopes for lots more melting.
We do not worry about outdoor weather as we are cozy indoors.
Here is a rare picture of the 3 of us together.

Sunday, Julie was watching Critter TV from the kitchen
window.Mum said her furs were very warm.

In many places the snow melted and you can see the ground.
This is where mum puts bird seed so it is good that
the ground is clear.

Mum took JJ in to see the Vet last week as he seemed 
unsteady and yeowling as he wandered around.
Turns out his heart murmer is a bit stronger..
This week, he went back for a check-up.
He had his blood pressure tested and it was higher
so he has meds for that.
Sadly, he is losing sight  in one eye, but we hope he will keep
it in the other.
In spite of this, he is still a happy fellow and gets around
 pretty good.Not too bad for a 22 year old.

Finally Friday !

Georgia: Happy Friday friends!
What a week, Mum was happy as it was not freezing cold.
We had some warm temps Wednesday and Thursday!
Today is the warmest yet at 9C (48 F)
Mind you, we get rain with that, but as indoor cats we don't mind.
Besides, the rain starts tonight,probably when mum is coming home.
You all know that mum is lazy about taking pics,
 so we are doing our Friday close ups. Here is mine,



Julie was at the Vet for her semi-annual check up.
Mum thought she was getting,um,big.
The Vet said that she can still see the indent in  her body shape
and that is good.She should not gain any more though
Over all, she is in good shape and even her teeth
are looking good.
Julie was pleased and happy to get home.

JJ goes for his annual exam on Saturday.
We will see how this 22 year old is doing.

What will you be doing this weekend?
We purr it involves FUN!!!

Monday Musings with Julie

Julie: Hi friends. As you can see, I was on the porch.
It was pretty cool and I did not stay out long.
We did have sunshine and that was nice.

Georgia and JJ spent most of the weekend snuggling.

Critter TV was pawsome this weekend though I don't 
think my friends in  Troute Town  would agree.
That's because we had birds!
Here is a crow with Earl the Squirrel.

There were also lots of ducks.

This group was getting ready to leave.
They winter in the river next to our place.
It runs along the side of the house downhill from us.
Then it goes under the road(bridge) into the lake.
Right now, most of the lake is iced over.

The best news is that the temps for this week will
be above 0 C !!!!!(That's 32F for our American friends)
We will be getting rain and some sun this week!
Mum hopes it takes away a lot of snow!

I hope it warms up the porch!

Finally Friday Close Ups

Georgia: Well it is Friday once again and we are happy.
Mum is most happy  as it means she is with us
all weekend.
Our weather is turning better too.
After the storm on Monday, it was cold all week.
Now, the temps are starting to rise to the point we
 will see rain on Monday!
Mum will be glad to see the end of wind chill factors!

We have some close ups for you.
Here is mine.



Here are some pictures from the storm on Monday.
The birds were fighting to get into the feeder.

This guy succeeded!

These ducks were digging in the snow for seeds 
mum put out earlier and finding them too!

We will be turning our clocks ahead this weekend.
That means that there will be more light at the 
end of the day.Mum wishes they would leave it 
this way and not change ie in the Fall!

So! What will you be doing this weekend?
Hope it involves FUN !!

Stormy Days !

Georgia: Saturday night we had a storm.
It was the first really bad storm we had as it 
brought so much snow. We have had snow, but it did not last.

Today we are having another storm that is bringing
snow,ice pellets and rain.Since it will be yucky outside,
mum is taking a vacation day and staying
home with us!

Julie: I love any day mum stays home with us.
I love to follow mum around and hang out with her.

Mum took this picture Saturday night.
You can see pathways we have cleared from a 
bit of snow we had a little while ago.

Sunday morning it looked like this!

Lots of birds came by for breakfast but had to wait.
Mum needed to shovel a path to the feeder.

When she was done moving snow, the birds came back.
The ducks,

and crows and a duck.
Mum took the pictures through the  kitchen windows
so the quality is not too good.

Now, I think I will find mum and hang out with 
her again!

Finally Friday!

Georgia: Hi friends and welcome to Friday!!
Today we start a new month.One that will bring Spring!
Our forecast is not playing along though.
While we will see sun today and most of
Saturday, we will also be seeing more snowflakes on Sunday!
Well, Spring is not till the 21st, so there is hope.

I know Julie is hoping for sun and porch time!
So am I.

So is JJ !

Most of all we are looking forward to lots of time with mum.
We are also looking forward to having FUN!!

What  FUN will you be having this weekend?

Monday Musings with Georgia,Julie and JJ

Georgia: Happy Monday friends. 
We had a pretty good weekend that ended better 
than it started. There was a plumbing issue.
A pipe started spraying water so mum had to 
turn the water off. This did not affect the kitchen, 
but it did affect the bathroom!
Lucky for mum,  a friend of hers knew a guy who
could fix it and he did. Now the place is all cleaned up
and back to normal.

Old pipe with worn piece in lower right corner.

New pipe in place.
This pipe sends water to the toilet.
Now mum can flush her "litter box" !

JJ: I am glad things are back to normal.
I like to relax and don't want too much drama.As it turns out, 
I slept through most of the thing anyway.

Julie: I liked this weekend pretty much.
We had sunshine and I was on the porch.
Sunny days are best for critter TV.
However, mum says another storm is coming 
Sunday evening into Monday.
Sadly she is right as it is raining and then will change
back to flurries. Darn!

These ducks came for breakfast.

And Earl came by Sunday afternoon.

I would still like to chase him though!!
Earl: Good thing you are inside Julie!

Finally Friday Close-Ups

Georgia: Happy Friday friends.
While it was a short work week for mum, she is glad it's Friday.
We got more snow on Thursday and mum had to shovel again.
She did remember to take our pictures too
In this one of me, you can see all my glorious Tortie colours!
You can also see my white whiskers on one side
and black on the other side.
I also have light furs around my neck that look
like a necklace.
Mum says I'm cute and I think she is right.

JJ: Here is my close up. You can see I am  still 
a handsome Tabby in spite of my age.
I have long furs that mum has to work on  a lot
as they do tend to get matted. As an older boy, 
I do not groom myself as often as some areas are hard to reach.
My whiskers ate pretty cool too.

Julie: I am doing a body close up.
My glorious black furs are very soft and silky.
Mum likes that a lot.
I also have some cool white furs at my neck.
My whiskers are pretty cool too.
Also, I can pose quite nicely when I choose to do so.
For my friends, I will pose.

Here is a picture of the new snow we got.
As you can see, the ground is covered in what mum says
is light fluffy snow.
She went out to shovel it out of the way so
the birds can get the seeds she puts out.
While today and Saturday will be sunny, there may be more
snow on Sunday!

We do not mind as we are indoor cats so we will
be indoors having FUN!!!

What will you be doing this weekend?
Hope it includes FUN !

Heritage Day at Mickey's Musings

Georgia: Mum is home today as it is a holiday.
It also means she will be after us for pictures!
I don't always like having my picture taken.

She wants me to look at the camera.
That tongue is sticking out at mum, not my friends!

JJ is ready for a nap.

Julie is looking out at the frozen landscape.
We had rain on Saturday and then it froze!

Some areas are icy,but mum has cleared some

Julie did consent to posing for the camera.

Mum is home because it is Heritage Day.
