An update of sorts

Sorry for abandoning you for such a lengthy time, again! Life has been hectic as always and the camera has been left in it’s camera bag for far too long.

Recently I had the crazy idea of trying to re-establish a flower garden at my grandfather’s house. This meme is more than accurate when it comes to me and gardening:

But I am very enthusiastic, so expect to see many pictures of half dug up plots and dead plants as I try to figure it out as I go along.

We even took the cat with us today, she enjoyed it immensely (and is sound asleep at home right now, with any luck our wake-up call will be later than 8 a.m. tomorrow). Or at least I hope she did.

I hope you are all enjoying Spring as much as I am (I even wrecked my knee while orienteering a few days ago – a clear sign that better weather is to come)!

The Tail of a Wet Pussy

IMG_4254_1024Once upon a time, on a warm day in May, a plan of going on a fishing adventure was formed. But feeling remorseful about leaving our cat at home alone, we figured we would bring her with us. 

In our defence, she is our first cat, having only owned dogs previously, and dogs LOVE to go on road trips. She fetches toys, much like a dog, so why wouldn’t she enjoy an afternoon by the lake?

Well, I can tell you why she didn’t enjoy it – why, it’s because she fell in the water, that’s why!

I was too busy laughing (after I had made sure she wasn’t drowning, of course) to take a proper picture, so this is the only shot I got, but I think it portrays her feelings about the situation quite well. 

She enjoyed the rest of the outing a lot more, after learning that water is indeed wet.

Photo a Day August – Day 8 (pet peeve)

This time something that annoys me:

It actually doesn’t annoy me – I just hate it when someone opens a drawer or a closet and leaves it wide open. Taking things and not putting them back to the place you took them is also my pet peeve.

A Sleepy Kitty

Our kitten, or a young cat I should say, has been floored by the heat, meaning that when she usually plays for several hours during the day, she now decides it’s playtime and hunting time at around midnight, when we are preparing to go to bed. During the day this is her usual position.

Grow Light

We brought a table lamp, to create a good “study spot” for us. Oh how wrong were we. Being newbie cat owners  our naivety is forgiveable I suppose, thinking we could use the table now. But the lamp generates warmth, and all warmth is claimed by cats, so our study spot is now the cat’s spot. And that’s final.
