Monday Musings with Georgia



Georgia: Friday afternoon we had some snow.
It came down in big,fat fluffy flakes.
By evening the flakes were smaller and
a lot wetter and stayed on the ground.
Mum said it was a slippery ride home.
Later the temperature dropped and the snow 
got a bit harder.
Good thing mum went out and shovelled tha walkway 
and a path to the bird feeders.


Saturday and Sunday we had sunshine!
It was pretty nice as there was no wind and
 we got to go out on the porch.
The snow on the trees was pretty.
The bare tree in the foreground is dead.
With all the wind we have been having,
it kept losing branches.
Guess there will be some tree trimming this Spring.


We enjoyed lounging on the porch.
JJ loved soaking up the warm sunshine as did I.


Julie always loves being on the porch and she spent
time watching the squirrels.


Earl made it very easy for her!


Yes, we enjoyed our weekend!


Yes, Julie has started licking again.
Mum says she will try some Bag Balm 
She uses it on her feet. Maybe it is the dry air. 
Last time she did this was last December.

Finally Friday Flashback!



Georgia: Mum only worked 3 days this week as Monday
and Tuesday were vacation days.
She was lazy too and did not take pictures of us.
Therefore, we are sharing pictures from this time 
last year.
I liked drinking water then as much as I do now.
That's a good thing as Winter tends to be much
dryer than Summer.


JJ standing on his bed. He likes napping there and 
from this elevated position, he can  keep an eye
on things that are happening around the house.


Julie was having her breakfast. This is her normal place 
for dining. This is also where she sits in the evening to 
watch for mum coming home.


We did not have any snow last year at this time.
Now, we have a dusting on the ground.
Today is sunny and the temperature is not too bad.
We will be having flurries and sun for the next
few days an the temperatures will not be
too cold. We may get on the porch or stay inside
with the heating vents.
Either way we will have FUN !!!
What are you doing this weekend?
 Hope it will be FUN!

Monday Musings with Julie



Julie: I was a bit miffed at mum this weekend.
She abandoned me!!!!!!!!
She left Saturday evening and came home
Sunday night!
OK, she did leave us food, but that's not the point.
SHE ABANDONED ME!!!!!


She went to her sister's place and they  were helping
to get ready for the annual Tea and Tour hosted
by Auntie's church.
After eating, people go to visit 3 houses all
decorated for Christmas.
This was the 23rd year!
Mum said it was great fun and she did miss me.


OK, so I guess it was only for 1 night and she did 
come back and give me lots of cuddles.
I just like having mum around a lot.


Georgia: Julie is such a drama queen!
Here I am proving to mum that I am not
a fussy eater. I ate most of my wet food and 
am eating my dry.
Just because I don't always finish my food
does not make me fussy...right?


JJ: I always finish my food! I like food!
I think Georgia is fussy, but if I can finish her food,
I don't mind at all! Heh!


Georgia is a pretty good snuggle companion though.
And, for the record, we are happy mum is back.
Yeah, Julie is a bit of a drama queen when it comes 
to mum.She thinks mum is hers when we know 
she is ours. Silly girl.MOL!

Finally Friday!



Happy Friday friends!


Thursday we were doing plenty of this.
We had a BIG storm that had very strong wind
and ,in some areas,snow!
There were lots of flurries in the air, but nothing 
stayed on the ground.
At the Cape Breton end of our province, 
there was a lot of wind and snow and tree branches!
That caused problems with the electrical wires and the flow of
electricity into the main power grid.
As a result, there was a huge power outage !
In the metro Halifax area the outage was the largest
We lost our power in the morning and got it back 
about 1PM. Other areas got power about 5 PM.
Some areas were still waiting late in the evening.

Once again, Mum was happy to be home.
She is still using up vacation time and will not go back
to work until Wednesday.
Needless to say, we are happy cats!!
We love having mum home.
That means FUN!!!!
How about you?
What are your plans for the weekend ?
Hope they will be FUN !

Monday Musings with Georgia



Georgia: Happy Monday friends.
Even though mum went back to work today, we are still happy
because we had a great time when she was home.
Our weather was crazy!
We had sun, then we got some light snow and the
temperatures were cold!
We had wind so there was a wind chill factor also!
Mum was really happy to be home!
This week there will be sun,rain and maybe a rain-snow mix.
The temps will be in the +C (centigrade) range
so that is good.


On the warmer days, we did get on the porch.
Julie was delighted!


A lot of days JJ and I napped together.


In this picture, you can see where JJ had some 
mats removed at his back end.
He is mat free and happy.
Mum heard back from the Vet and he passed his tests!
His Thyroid and kidney functions were in the good range,
do no increases in his meds is necessary!! WooHoo!


The best news is that mum has Thursday
and Friday off!
Did we mention that we love mum holidays?!
We wish all of you a great week !!!

Friday Thoughts with Georgia




Georgia: Hi friends.It's Friday and that means 
mum's staycation is over. Darn!
We have enjoyed this week and we had lots
of snuggles and FUN !
The good news is that mum still has some
vacation days left!
This week has been crazy  in the weather department.
We had sun,rain and snow and it was warm and really cold.
The cold weather was Thursday and today.
The rest of the weekend looks to be warmer.
WooHoo!


 On the cool days, JJ and Julie did not go on the porch.
They sat on the windowsill and looked onto
the porch and outside.


Julie was looking for live squirrels.
The one above her is just a figurine. MOL!
If any squirrels or mice get into the porch, 
they better watch out! Julie is quite a mouser.
(Mum has had to rescue some that Julie brought 
into the house.Sometimes the mouse is not so lucky.
Mum is happy that Julie never tries to eat them.)
Heehee! Mum leaves the kitchen door open 
when we cats are on the porch)


JJ also enjoyed looking out the windows.
This week mum took him to the Vet for his
semi-annual check-up. They stole some of his blood.
They do a Senior wellness check.
Mum has not caught up with the Vet yet to see 
how he is doing.They are watching his thyroid and kidneys.


JJ also had a few matts that mum could not remove.
One was right under his chin.
The  Vet staff removed them so now he feels better
but his coat is a bit uneven. JJ does not mind though.
He is just glad mum is not picking at his furs anymore.
For a kitty that is 21 years old, he is still pretty active.
He also has a really good appetite.
The Vet said he can eat as much as he wants!


While mum goes back to work Monday, we will
enjoy our weekend and have FUN!
What are your plans for the weekend?

We purr you all have FUN !

at home with us. We are getting lots of scritches

was nice and sunny and warm on the porch!
I loved it and spent the afternoon on the porch.


JJ enjoyed a warm snooze on the back of the couch.


Julie enjoyed snoozing on the couch too 
when she was not following mum around.
Mum has been enjoying reading her book.


We are all enjoying mum's staycation !

They will be looking for scritches and brushings!


Today was a good day for mum to be off.

The birds are looking for the seeds mum put out 
early this morning.
The forecast says it will change to rain this afternoon.

Monday Musings with Georgia



Georgia: We have proof that JJ and I are good drinkers.
We love our water.Right now, JJ is having his drink.


Now it is my turn.
JJ is pretty good about sharing.


This past Sunday was Remembrance Day.
Mum said it was the 100th anniversary of the end of
World War 1.
Every November 11 there is a Remembrance Day
service held in communities across Canada.
This one is in our community.


The veterans,Canadian forces,police,cadets and 
other groups all attend.


Marching in.
Mum said it was well attended.
Mum said the when WW! ended, church bells rang
throughout Europe in celebration.


Julie was happy this weekend too.
she has a few more pictures to share with you.
