Just For Fun Monday

This morning,  some recent fun photos of a few of our furry and feathered friends. And who isn’t in need of some fun right now?

So, in no particular order:

1.) Those of you who follow my Facebook page know that we are loving the bluebird pair, Benny and Bonnie, that have chosen one of my hanging geraniums for their home this spring.  Their feeder is near this decorative post, outside our bedroom window. Sometimes it seems they’re looking right at us.

2.) Our kitties continue to help us cope with this quarantine. Marshall recently snapped this picture of his kitty, Sibs, from outside a window. She is so pretty.

3.) And here’s our Sundae, coping with isolation. Oh, wait, it’s just another day in her world.

4.) Although we don’t care for the dozens of Canada geese who frequent our yard in the spring/summer, I have become quite fond of one of them. This is “Gimpy”, whose wing was recently broken. He has apparently adopted me and greets me every morning for breakfast.

5.) Was this bird feeder advertised as squirrel proof?

6.) As you can tell, the geese have been hanging out on this little dock, and yesterday morning, Motor Man caught a glimpse of this heron taking in the view watching for breakfast.

Our pets and the wildlife are keeping us entertained, perhaps even more than usual right now. How are you coping?

Happy Birthday To My Motor Man

Today is special in many ways: a new month, a new year, a new decade…

And, it’s my Motor Man’s birthday.

So, from your Gyp-Gyp:

Your Sundae girl:

Your stepson, Marshall:

And me, your Mrs. Motor Man:

We wish you a VERY Happy Birthday.

Let’s celebrate!

Sundae In Charge

Hello, efurryone.  This is Sundae, and I asked Motor Mommy if I could write today’s post.

I wanted to show you this cute picture of me tucking Motor Man in at bedtime.

Also, Motor Mommy asked me to tell you that her blog posts for the remainder of this month (and year!) will be sporadic.  Their calendar is quickly filling up with appointments, holiday preparations and events.

And of course, they already stay pretty busy taking care of my step-sisfur, Gypsy and me.

But she promises to pop in every once in a while to let you know what’s going on our little corner of the world.

Furiday: Lap Buddy

Sundae has a new nickname around our house: lap buddy.

Every afternoon, when Motor Man gets home from the shop and relaxes in the recliner, Sundae immediately is on his lap.

This may not seem so unusual, except for the fact that she was never really a lap kitty, especially to Motor Man.  That all changed back in the spring when he had the double whammy of a broken shoulder AND a hernia, the latter requiring surgery.

Ever since then,  Sundae’s been his lap buddy.

And I don’t think he really minds.

Furiday

Today seems a good day to share recent kitty pictures.

Marshall sent me this of his sweet kitty, Sibyl/Sibs/Sibby “chilling” on an old dresser.

This is Marshall’s kitty, Snugg, posing by a flowerpot of pansies.

Marshall has two other kitties, Chessie and Scream, but he hasn’t sent any recent pictures of them.  Maybe we’ll feature them in the next kitty post.

Our shop kitty, Gypsy on Motor Man’s desk. Caption: “life is good please rub my tummy “.

And our “home” kitty, Sundae.  Whenever she lies on our bed, it’s always on Motor Man’s side. Hmmm..

The kitties here at These Days wish you a purrfect weekend. The humans, too.

Gone To The Cats

As you well know, our kitties are a big part of our lives.

Our two have been particularly affectionate this week, especially to Motor Man. Earlier this week, Gypsy walked across my desk, on to his legs and then up to his chest…..where she perched.

(She must think she’s still THIS size):

Later that same afternoon, when Motor Man got home, Sundae gave him a little of her time.

Marshall recently sent these pictures of his kitties.  Sweet little Sibby discovered the “Hoosier” cabinet.

She’s so entertaining, he sends me lots of pictures of her.

And his kitty, Snugg, being king of his domain.
