Random Five Friday

This and that thoughts and photos for this last Friday of June.

1.) Pinterest comes through once again. I saw this simple-to-make bird bath, decided to try it, and in less than an hour of putting it in place, there was a gorgeous “golden” visitor. (The black stakes are actually garden hose “guides” that I used to, hopefully, keep the deer from knocking over the bird bath. So far, they’ve worked .)

2.) Speaking of gold finches, for my birthday, my friend, Janet, gave me this adorable feeder on a stake. Again, the birds took to it immediately.  I think his little legs, hanging on, are so cute.

3.) My “gypsy garden” continues. You may recall my ongoing efforts to save certain plants from the deer, and how creative I have to be with barriers. So far, I’ve managed to save a couple of volunteer sunflowers, but you can tell the deer enjoyed dining on most of the leaves before I put the netting in place.

4) And my ONE garden phlox that has survived, thanks to the cage Motor Man made for it and some cross piece deterrents across the top. I have hopes for the buds on the others.

5.) Sundae girl, on her window seat at sunrise, waiting on a hummie.

Bonus: this weekend is our small-town festival known as Olden Days. Main Street is closed off for a car show, live music and craft booths, and a raft race takes place on the Pagan River. This popular festival was started back in 1991, and I always look forward to it.

Enjoy your weekend!

Just Kitties

It’s been a while since any of the kitties have been featured here on These Days. And apparently, their little feelings have been hurt. So today, it’s all about the kitties:

One day last week, Motor Man had gotten home before I did. When I walked in, this was the cozy scene:

And Gypsy, enjoying a bag …

…as only a kitty can.

Marshall often shares pictures with me of his three kitties. He said he caught Chessie right in the middle of a good “scratching session”:

This is his kitty, Snugg, who obviously knows when his picture is being taken:

And Screamer, who is also a bit of a “ham”:

Hopefully, the kitties will be happy now with a little time in the spotlight. And I must say that I enjoy posting about them much more than…..(eek) snakes.

Monday Morning Mews: Peace Offering Pillow

Hi, readers. I’m Sundae, and this week, it’s my turn to bring you the mews.

You may recall that, a few weeks ago, my pawrents completely furgot about my “gotcha day”….the day I adopted them.

I think they really were sorry that the date slipped up on them. So on a recent outing, they bought me something!

My furry own pillow…..

Isn’t that sweet?  They thought about me and brought me a present.

Okay, Motor Mommy and Motor Man, you are definitely furgiven!

Monday Morning Mews: I Need Shades

Hi, readers, this is Sundae, and it’s my week to bring you the mews.

Today, I have a furry impawtant request for Motor Mommy.

I need shades.

Just look carefully at that picture. I am SQUINTING.  That can’t be good for a kitty’s eyes.

Even though I’m strictly an indoor kitty, I look out the windows quite often.  In fact, there’s a bird feeder right outside the window where my seat is.  And the morning sun just pours in that window. Plus, I simply LOVE basking in a sun puddle whenever possible.

With all that time in the sunlight, I definitely could use some sunglasses. Do they even make those for kitties?  Could you check on that for me, Motor Mommy?  If not, I just bet Motor Man could invent kitty sunglasses. We could market them, and I could star in the commercials, and maybe I’d become famous like Morris or some of those other tv star kitties.

Well, on second thought, purrhaps not….. I would probably be too busy with purrsonal appearances, and I wouldn’t have time to write the mews.

Maybe we’ll just leave things as they are…

Monday Morning Mews: Oops

Motor Mommy made a confession to me over the weekend.

March 14 was the anniversary of a furry special event, and Motor Mommy completely furgot about it.  You see, seven years ago on that date, I was adopted by my pawrents. I almost wrote about it last month in one of my posts, but I decided to just wait to see when IF she remembered.

I was a tiny little girl back then, and it took me a long time to become comfortable in my new surroundings.

But now, I’m happy and loved in my furever home.

Every night, Motor Mommy and I have cuddle time.  When she sits down in the recliner to relax and enjoy the newspaper, that’s when I make my way to her lap.

Sometimes I look so cute, she takes a selfie of us.

Yep, I’m a furry loved and happy kitty. If only all kitties (and doggies, too) could be this fortunate.

Monday Morning Mews: Winter

Hi, readers, and happy last Monday in March. Sundae here with this weeks’s mews.

This has been one cold, windy month…. we had lots of warm days in February, but not in March.  Brrr…. this is how I’m spending much of my time.

That wind blew like a hurricane ALL night. I didn’t sleep a wink. So I will spend much of today, once again, napping in my bed.

“Do Not Disturb”

Monday Morning Mews: Critiqued

Happy first Monday in March, efurryone. Sundae here with the Mews.

Without my knowledge (nor permission), Motor Mommy snapped this photo of me last week.

Now, I ask you: doesn’t that look like a sweet kitty, napping on her window seat? Well, I overheard Motor Mommy talking to Motor Man about this picture, and she said it looked like my “rumpus” was up in the air….like I had “highjackers”, whatever that is. I think it’s an old “car” term.

It seems that a kitty can’t even enjoy a comfy nap without being critiqued about her sleeping style….

Oh well, I must remember that they’re just humans and love them in spite of their weaknesses.
