Monday Morning Mews: Twins!

Good morning, efurryone! Another Monday has rolled around, and it’s Sundae, here to bring you this morning’s mews.

We had some excitement around our house a few days ago.  Motion outside the bedroom window caught Motor Mommy’s eye, and when she realized what it was, she was so surprised.

Tiny twin fawns!

She apologizes for the poor photo quality: these were taken through the windowpane.

Motor Mommy said those babies aren’t much bigger than me. (Look at that cute little face.)

I could tell that it was something that definitely needed my attention, too. So I quickly made my way to the window and jumped up on the sill for a better look.

Yes, Motor Mommy realizes that those babies will be eating her plants, but she just couldn’t help but think they’re so cute.

I plan to do my best to alert Mom whenever they’re out in the yard by “chattering” at them.  Of course, I do that when I see squirrels…or birds…or rabbits…or hummingbirds.  Maybe I could come up with a special “baby deer chatter”, sort of like a special ring tone?

Monday Morning Mews – True Confessions

Hi, readers. This is Sundae with today’s mews.  As the title shows, today is all about confessions.

I’ll go first:

1.) Sometimes when Motor Man isn’t at home, I’ll take over his spot on the bed. Never Motor Mommy’s side….just his. But shhhh, don’t tell him: it will just be our little secret. Do I look guilty?

2.) Motor Mommy gave me an old wooden box for all my kitty toys. Sometimes, when my pawrents are gone from home all day, I’ll take out a toy. Usually, it’s my favorite: a striped stocking (formerly a Christmas tree ornament). But, sometimes, if they’re gone a REALLY long time, they come home to find more than one toy out of the box.  Sunday was a “two-toy day”. The octopus belonged to their former kitty, Beezy. What’s odd is that I’ve never let them SEE me take a toy from the box…..sneaky!

3.) Also, a couple of nights ago, Motor Mommy was having some crackers and hummus, and I was very interested. She gave me a tiny little taste of the hummus, and I liked it!  She says I’m not allowed to have much, though, because “people food” isn’t good for me.

So do YOU have any confessions you’d like to make today?   It’s good for the soul, you know.

Random Five Friday

Happy 2nd day of June! Here are five randoms to begin my favorite month:

1.) It’s been a busy few days in our yard. Last week, I was out tidying up, doing some planting, etc., and this happened. Guess I took the curve a little too fast. (Yes, I tend to “hoard” those little information tags that are included with plants. I need intervention.)

2.) A couple of days later, I opened the curtains to find this situation on our deck. I had just planted those flowers the day before AND sprayed them with Liquid Fence. I’m guessing a squirrel must have thought I’d buried a nut in the bottom of the pot just for him. Wrong.

3.) Wednesday afternoon, storms moved through our area.  We didn’t have any severe weather, thankfully, but the clouds were simply amazing.

4.) Recently, Motor Man and I had dinner at a little local waterfront restaurant.  Pretty nice scenery, I’d say.

5.) This is birthday weekend for me. The celebrations have already begun: lunch Wednesday with a friend, and lunch today with more friends. Sunday, I’ll be celebrating with my two guys: beginning another trip around the sun.

Happy weekend!

Monday Morning Mews

Hello, efurryone.  Today’s mews brought to you by me: Gypsy.

We have a very funny picture to share with you today, but it needs a little “set up”.

Whenever a box is delivered to our shop, it’s my job to investigate said box. Well, yes, Motor Man opens it and takes out the contents, but still….I must inspect the empty box.

Earlier in the day that these photos were taken, our area had been under a tornado warning. So when Motor Man saw me in this box, he asked me if it were my “fallout shelter”.

Motor Mommy thought this was cute.

And then, she got THIS picture.  How embarrassing.

But, purrhaps I could star in a kitty toothpaste commercial?

Blogging/Facebook Friends

Several of my Facebook friends are gals who also write blogs. And that’s really nice that we’ve connected in that way, since most of us don’t blog everyday.

But there’s one aspect of this that bothers me a little.  Whenever I post a picture on Facebook, I hesitate to include that photo in a blog post. Because I feel as though I’m forcing my blogging/Facebook friends to “sit through a rerun”.

Such is the case today. I shared the last photo in today’s post on Facebook earlier in the week.

Monday had been an overcast, dreary, drizzly day in our area. But the skies began to clear late in the day.  As my mom used to say: “The sun came out in time to set”.

However, there were still clouds.

I thought the photo above would be the extent of photo ops with the sunset. But, later, I glanced out the window and saw the most vivid pink sky I can recall.

This was the best picture I could get with our camera. (I still don’t understand all those camera buttons. I’m just an “auto setting” kinda girl.)

BUT, this one was taken with my trusty little Android phone. And it captures the colors in the sky perfectly.

And, of course, I had to immediately share it on Facebook.  Thus the reason some of you are sitting through a rerun today.

At Sunrise

Although she’s most welcome any time throughout the day,

sunrise just may be the most beautiful time to visit.
