Gypsy’s Journal – Page 3

Hi, friends (and furriends), it’s Gypsy again, and I have lots of news to share with you today.

Earlier this week, I had my own “Glamour Shot” photo session. (Photography by Motor Man.)

I think he captured the real me.

Then, yesterday,  I pretended that Motor Mommy’s legs were a sliding board. (Two things about this picture: that is indeed a clutter corner in the background, and Motor Mommy just had her hand up to her face, laughing. It isn’t what it appears at first glance...)


And, as usual, I spent a lot of time this week in my favorite spot: on Motor Man’s chest. Not only am I a glamour kitty, I’m also a lucky kitty.


And here’s some news about my step-sister, Sundae:  she’s going to the Valentine Ball with her boycatfriend, Sammy this weekend!  I bet she’ll have a post next week… with pictures.

Bye from the Glamour Kitty!

Gypsy: Happy Wednesday, effuryone, and welcome to another page in my journal.

The past few days have been wonderful at the office! Motor Mommy has been there ALL day, working on tax stuff (whatever that is). Of course, I’ve been helping her quite a bit.

On my break, I played with one of my toys: a Christmas present from Sammy, my sister, Sundae’s, boycatfriend.

Later, my pawrents’ friend, Wayne, stopped by.  I really like it when he visits, because he gives me lots of tummy rubs!

Wanna see how much I’ve grown?? Here’s a picture from last summer of Wayne, holding me when I first came to be the shop kitty. (I couldn’t fit in his hands now!)

Anyway, after helping Motor Mommy with all those papers, and all the attention from folks stopping by, I just had to have a kitty nap.

Being a cute cuddly kitty an office assistant sure is hard work.    zzzzz      zzzzz   zzzzz

Random Five Friday

Joining Nancy at A Rural Journal for Random Five Friday.

1.) My friend, Bev, and I were just saying yesterday how ready we are for summer. We’ve had a few days of raw temps and below zero wind chills, so now, it’s time for summer…right?

2.) One morning, earlier this week, I glanced out our kitchen window and saw one of the eagles perched in our sycamore tree. The best picture I could get was through a window. Eagles are so skittish!

3.) Gypsy’s “picture of the week”. Motor Man took this with his cell phone. Yes, she’s completely in charge of the office and all who enter.


4.) Yesterday morning’s sunrise briefly colored our world in orange and gold and pink.

5.) I sure am missing these two.  Just two more reasons I’m ready for summer.

And I just bet many of you are dreamin’ of summertime too.

Random Five Friday

The first RFF of the New Year!

1.) When I was a a little girl, my sister, June, would occasionally knit a sweater for me. Then she’d use the leftover yarn to knit a coat for my Barbie doll. (Sadly, when I was about 13, I gave away all my Barbies and clothes.) This year, for Christmas,  June gave me a pair of hand-knit socks.  Mmmmm…toasty!

2.) A few days ago, the morning sky was beautifully amazing with contrail X’s.

3.) Do you think Gypsy has officially outgrown her bed?  She continues to ignore the brand new, larger one that Santa brought her.

4.) Update on the tablet that Motor Man and I got for Christmas: the Verizon store didn’t have the protective case for it the day we bought it, so they ordered it and had it sent to us.  After two days of trying to figure out how to put it on the tablet, we gave up and went back to Verizon to watch them have them do it.  Motor Man said they all probably had a good laugh when we left the store.

5.) Ever since we went sleigh riding in Townshend, Vermont last year around this time, I’ve kept the town as a favorite in my weather app.  This morning, it’s four degrees there. Yesterday, they had 3.5 inches of snow, and another inch is forecast for today. Is it possible to be homesick for a place you’ve only been once (for two days) in your life?

Gypsy’s First Christmas

Gypsy celebrated her first Christmas yesterday.

Prezzies! For me?

In the large package was Gypsy’s new, “big-girl” bed (which she, so far, has ignored). The small package was a gift from our friends, Pam and Dave and their kitty, Sammy. It was a “cube” kitty playhouse.

And Gypsy LOVES it! She rolled in it across the floor like a hamster in a wheel, she peeked out of it and curled up in it.

All attempts to get her to pose with a red bow on her head, however were…

But, look at that sweet face. Who needs a red bow anyway?

A Miss Gypsy Update

Many several a couple of you expressed concern in your comments yesterday regarding Gypsy getting cuddles and being warm at the shop.

Let me assure you that Gypsy gets her fair share of cuddling. From me….

But, she also has every customer and friend who stops by the shop wrapped around her little paw.

Oh, and if Motor Man thinks she’s chilly, there’s always a soft shop rag nearby that can be used for a blankie.

So, never fear, little Miss Gypsy is comfy, cozy, happy and loved. And she thanks you for thinking of her.

Gypsy’s Heading To The V-E-T

Today is an important day for Gypsy, our shop kitty. Of course, she doesn’t know it yet, but bright and early this morning, we’ll be taking her to the vet for her girl-kitty surgery.

She’s approximately four months old now and weighs almost five pounds. These pictures will give you an idea of how much she’s grown in the last couple of months. The first one was taken August 23,  four days after she found us.

This was taken yesterday.

It’s going to be a long day at the office today without her. I don’t know who’ll miss her more, Motor Man….

gypsy and jr1 9-8-2013 4-04-51 PM 9-8-2013 4-04-51 PM

…or me.

gyp and db 10-29-2013 6-44-08 AM

We should be able to pick her up between 4:30 and 5:30.  We’ll be watching the clock…
