Spring is getting closer!

Julie: Thursday was a pretty nice day
Small bits of light snow still hang around, 
but not for long The sun is getting stronger
and longer.

Last evening we enjoyed a pretty sunset.

Today we had a few flurries then the sun  took over.
We do have a little breeze, but that's all.
Looks like we may have a rainy weekend so this
is likely to be my preferred position.
I think it is a pretty good one, don't you?

If I need to nap, I know a great place tor napping!
Soft, comfy and lots of room!
The weather will be a mix of everything.
That is typical for our area in the Spring.
But I will be inside and warm and comfy.

 Purrs you all enjoy a great weekend!

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!
