Long Weekend Friday

JJ: This weekend is a long weekend for Mom. 
That is because Monday is Victoria Day.
We like that Mom has  3 days, but she is not spending all of
them with us!

Julie: That's right JJ. Mom is going away overnight to her 
brother's place. She is going with Auntie N.
That will limit my time on the porch and I am not too
happy about that!

 Georgia: Yup that's right. With Mom away overnight, 
we will probably be spending lots of time here.
At least it will be comfy and cozy, but
we will miss Mom.

She is going to her brother's to help him plant more of these.
They are grapevines. These are 4 years old.
They will give a full crop this year, as it takes about 4 years
 for the vines to become established and hardy.

They grow these things called grapes.

The grapes are turned into this stuff called  wine.
Humans like it, but we kitties prefer Niptinis.
This wine is from a Nova Scotia winery called
Benjamin Bridge and they buy the grapes.

Whatever you are doing this weekend, we purr you all
have lots of FUN !

Maybe you should have a house trashing party when your human is away?

Oh man. That's so unfair that she's going away!

We like the house-trashing party idea. :-)

We're happy it's the long weekend because our human has taken today AND Tuesday off! Yay!

Okay, maybe Nicki's not so excited about a trip to the v-e-t this AM, for regular stuff. LOL.

Happy long weekend, everyone. And happy planting to your mom. :-)

Why does your Mom has a day off and waste it visiting someone else when she could have been with you.

How neat! We love that those grapes turn into that wine! We bet it's good wine too. Hope you still have a good weekend even though your Mom is going to be gone overnight.
