It has been so nice and warm and sunny the past few days...even the windows are open! Huraay! This has brought out the bugs big time! Lots of fun for us, but not so much for meowmy! When I looked out into the yard, I saw that the double daffodils have begun blooming at the south side of the house, and the tiny regular shaped ones are starting their show at the north side of the house. Then I know that it really is warm! Everything is green now, but strangely rustly for this time of year. Meowmy says we need rain! In April! I thought this was the month for that...Oh well 29 more days for that...but since March was very dry there is a fire/burn ban and warning. Usually you only hear about that in the hot summer months. But it is also quite windy, so that only makes it worse. Someone in our area had a big problem when she tried to burn some yard waste...it made her yard a waste that's for sure, including her neighbours 2 sheds and lots of trees...and sadly 4 rabbits. Sorry, Easter Bunny, they couldn't get out of the smoke... :( I felt sad for their little girl owner.
(It reminded meowmy of the time a few years back when almost at the same time of year and in the same conditions (!), the nieghbours of us had a barn fire which also travelled into out yard, ruining the new fence and 12 trees...)
So be careful all you people, fire is BAD!
But then people are swimming in excess rain and water at other parts of the country...go figure!
Meowmy's schedule was strange today, too. She got out the nasty sucking machine on Thursday! Usually she only uses that big monster on Fridays. She mumbled something about a holiday, tomorrow...Whatever. ( Meowmy cleans with other stuff on days when the big monster gets to stay in hiding)
And a stranger even came in my den, so I had to go into hiding for quite a while. Meowmy even managed to coax me out, but when this fix-it guy walked past to leave I did the vamoose! Meowmy said that fix-it guy had to fix our internet connection. Oh! Goody, now she can talk to all the pet peoples again! Yeah!
Today was April Foo'ls Day, and the radio guy played a nice trick on all his gullible listeners...about stringing a zipline for use of the public along our Linear path...HAW-HAW! Wait till tomorrow when they find out they've been had! MOL!!
Later of all the insults, she nabbed me and gave my teeth a brushing...UGH!
But I do love it when she gives my furs a going over after she finishes with the teeth!
Well, I am going to go and take a big nap, after I groom my furs into perfection...
Purrs and Mews!
I love the warmer weather. That means more sun spots to lay in, which is one of my favorite things to do.
