Quiet,overcast weekend but no snow.

Julie: Spring still cannot make up its mind. 
It was cloudy  on the weekend and cool.
We did not get any snow just  overcast and cool.

It was a good day for getting brushies.
I am always ready for a good brush!

 Mum says this will be a sunnier week.
I hope so as sunshine is warm.
I am ready for sunshine and seeing the grass grow!

Friday Thoughts

Julie: We have had some interesting weather.
Sun,heat and then snow!
Then the snow changed  to freezing rain 
to rain Thursday night. 
We have sun again today.

During the week when Mum went for her walk,
she saw this seagull. It was on top of a telephone pole. 
Sammy or Samantha was just relaxing

I must say, sunshine is much nicer than snow.
Snow and rain are cold.

I also look forward to my daily brushing.
That is so satisfying. It feels really good on my body.
I must say, I do like being a pampered  cat.
I also like mum being around all the time too!

OK Mum! Grab that brush and stroke my furs!!!
Did I mention that I am a happy cat?

Welcome Spring!!

Julie: We had some nice sunny days over the weekend.
The temperatures are getting better too.

While  it is sunny and warm in this window, it is
not hot outside. The temperature only got up to 5C(41F)
However the good news is that the snow is  pretty 
much gone  and today is the first day
of Spring!! It is nice and warm on this windowsill
and I can feel the heat! I like that . We might have rain 
later in the week but that is OK as it is not snow!
Even with snow, it will not last.

 I must say I love sitting here. The sun feels so good
on my black furs!
Oh yes! I am SO ready for Spring and Summer!!


I think I may have a little snooze in the sun too.

Happy Spring to all!!

Springtime weather!

Julie: Yesterday morning this is what we saw
when we got up. This was at 7:45AM

Yup! Snow!!

The ducks were happy mum put seed out.
They did not move away when mum came out.
I think they know she has the seeds.

They had a good snack.
Later, after lunch, Mum went for her afternoon walk.

This is what it looked like when she went out.

 No wonder people around here say
"If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes" !
Still, I was happy to stay inside!
It may not be snowy, but it is not hot either!

As it is St Patrick's Day, the green you see is
the Rhododendron bush.
Happy St Patrick's Day!!

Hurry up Spring!!

Julie: Saturday was sunny. I got so sit just outside the 
porch door.

It was pretty nice. The snow is going
but the air is still cool.

The rest of the week will be cool with  periods
of snow, rain and maybe some sun.
I do not think Winter wants to leave.
Well, I hope that it agrees to leave on the
first day of Spring!
I want my grass to grow!!

 When the grass grows, I can eat it!
Mmmmmmm! Tasty young blades of grass.
I cannot wait!

Wait! What do you mean stormy weather is
in the forecast?!!!!

Snowflurries and Ducks!

Julie: Mum, do you have that phone camera
pointed at me again?
Yes Julie, I need pictures for your blog
Oh...OK then.

Well! Guess what I just saw out the kitchen window!

Mum had to be sneaky to take the pic, 
so it is not a good one.
They come because she puts out seeds!
Usually it is in the morning, but these two
came in the afternoon.

They come up the stairs from the river nearby.

Those silly birds must like getting exercise.
If mum let me out, I could give them exercise
by chasing them!
Naturally she won't let me out!


There is good news though. Mum says the temps
are above freezing all week so  maybe the snow will
melt! Overnight temps are still cold, but I have my paws
crossed. I am SO looking forward to seeing green grass!!
I am really looking forward to eating some nice
tender blades of sweet grass.
I do hope this white stuff goes away soon!

Oh look! Sunshine    oops, gone again!!!!!!!!

Lazy weekend with Mum.

Julie: I like sitting on Mum.
She is comfy and soft. MOL!

She is also nice and warm.
Even though we have a furnace that blows
nice warm air, I still like snuggling with mum!
I also get some really nice scritches too.

I also like the bed. It is cozy, comfy and there is lots
of room to stretch out!
We had some nice sunshine yesterday.

                                                     We had some nice sunshine yesterday.
                                                    There was also a bit of melting going on too.
                                                           The week does not look too bad.
                                             There will be dome flurries, but no accumulation.
                                                       The daytime temps will be above 0C (32F)
       and no storms in the forecast.
Just some sun and cloudy days!
Just 14 days until Spring!

Friday, 3 March 2023


Julie: We are getting our first big snowstorm!

Mum says it will bring lots of snow.
People that like to ski should  be happy
Mum just hopes the snow is light and fluffy.
So far, so good. Light snow is easier to move.
I'll hake her word for it. I'm not going out in that!

Mum finally figured out how to post a video!
This is a first for her ...MOL!
I'm not sure what she means by old dogs and new tricks.
I did not see any dogs!

 Guess I know what mum is doing today!
I'll sit here and watch.

Friday morning and the sun is out!
We did get a lot of snow!

Julie says "Happy Birthday Dr Seuss!"

How are you doing Dr Seuss?
I guess as  a stuffie you are doing quite well.

The Cat in the Hat and I  want to remember
and celebrate The real Dr Seuss's

 He was a pawsome author and wrote some
mighty fine and fun books about this cat
with the red and white hat!

Staying warm during the cold weather!

Julie:  I was just laying in my bed on the filing cabinet
when mum came along to take some pictures.
This filing cabinet is in a corner and there is a space between
the cabinet and the wall. In that space is a floor vent.
As it is Winter, it is blowing warm air.

If you think that makes me happy, you would
be right!! It is SO cozy and I am s very happy cat.
It is quite cold outside so we have to be careful
our water pipes do not freeze!

 By Tuesday, the temperatures should moderate  to more 
bearable conditions. That is good because if it is too cold, 
our water pipes can freeze! 
Mum will keep the water running a bit overnight
 so they will not freeze.
The rest of the week looks like more normal temperatures.
Both mum and I are ready for Spring!!!

Julie on Friday


Julie: Here are some random pictures mum too of me.

Here I am on the edge of the bed.
Mum has the Winter cozy sheets and they are warm.
I like snuggling with mum!

On a sunny day, I curled up on the porch sofa.
The sun was nice on my furs too.

Mum opened the door and I sat outside for a bit.
It was cool bit not cold. I did not wander as there is no
tasty grass this time of year.

I was happy to be outside for a bit.
It will probably be a while before
I sit out again. Mum says we are getting snow!
It will start early Friday morning.
Oh well, that happens in the Wintertime!
24 days until Spring!

Up and Down Winter weather!

Julie: This window id a great place for dining.
It has a nice view because it is  one of two
windows. In other words, it is in a corner.
It provides great views when I am dining.

It is a good place to wash your face too.

I like to sit on the desk to make sure mum does
my blog the way I like. She is a good
secretary even if her typing is not fast.

Our snow is going away slowly.
Today is above freezing and it is raining.
That helps get rid of snow.
It is not good for people that want to skate on the lake.

 This week is going to be crazy weather wise.
It will be warm and  at the start of the week, 
then cold near the end of the week.
We will see rain, sun and snow.
I will have to wait and see if that changes during the week
I am not too concerned as I am indoors and
it is always nice and cozy inside!
How is the weather where you live!

29 days until Spring!!!(counting today)

No freezing rain ,just more snow

Julie: Well, we did not get any freezing rain.
We did get more snow last night.

The birds were happy, especially since Mum
put out seeds.

Then the sun came out!
We all like the sun.

Most of all, I like getting brushed!
OK Mum, start brushing please!!!!!

Snow, drama and Sunshine!!!

Julie: Friends, what a week!
Mum was supposed to get an oil delivery
last Friday but was unable to get any.
Our road was getting a load of rock .
The road we are on is a private road so maintenance
is not done by the city. 
While we are the 1st house, the truck could not get up the road
so we did not get our oil!
We had about a quarter of a tank. The office said they would 
come back on Thursday.
Mum asked if that would last and they said it should.
Mum crossed her fingers.

This is the snow we got Tuesday  !
No wonder Mum was worried!
She got out and started to shovel the snow.

The ducks came!

They enjoyed the seeds!

Mum shovelled  snow again while I was  at the Vet on
 Wednesday  and it was fairly warm.
Snow started melting!
Then, the oil man showed up and we got oil!

Thursday was sunny and warm!
                                   The ducks really enjoyed the seeds with the melting snow !

 Nothing beats dining in the Winter sunshine!!!
Dining in the sunshine is such FUN!

                                                        Guess what is happening tonight?

                                                           We have a freezing rain warning!
                                                            At least we are warm and cozy!

Sunny and clear before a snowstorm!

Julie: Sunday was nice and sunny but the
weatherperson says we are getting snow.
Lots of snow!
Mum and I are not too happy about that.
We have been liking our minimal snow Winter.

The deer have been liking it too as there is still
some greenery  for them to eat.

                                                    The ducks also like a snow free zone.

Guess mum  better get her boots and snow shovel ready! 
I will stay indoors where it is warm and cozy!
