Jeepers; it is Good Friday AND I am a DDP! Mama was sure shocked when she opened her e-mailer today and found all the messages from our friends.
I wanna thank all the kitties who sent me presents and commented on my diary entry yesterday. I do think it was one of my better ones...
Mama plans to help me send personal thank-yous for all my presents today because Mother Nature decided mama should stay inside all day.
Yesterday morning it was beautiful and sunny. Mama got up and went outside to work in our yard because it was just too nice not to. Mama spent a couple of hours cutting down the clematis vines (what the heck are those?) and cleaning old dead stuff out of the few flowers that have dared to poke their heads up above the ground.
Around noon it started to rain, so mama was happy to stay inside for the rest of the day. It was cold and rainy when we went to bed. Daddy was supposed to come today, and then on Saturday mama and daddy were taking a day trip to Missoula, which is on the other side of the mountains.
Mama woke up today and looked out the window. Everything was white! There was snow coming out of the sky, and the bushes were all droopy. Mama tried to open the back door to see how deep the snow was. She could only get it open a few inchers. She got the yardstick and measured. There were 16 inchers of snow on the back steps! Mama finally managed to push the door open far enough to squeeze through sideways. I think it was lucky that mama did not put the snow shovel away because she shoveled and shoveled. The snow in other parts of the yard was not so bad except where there were drifts up to mama's waist! Maybe some snow fell off our roof onto the steps. Mama said the snow was perfect for making a snowman, but she did not make one. I wonder why.
It is supposed to get 50 degrees tomorrow, so it will probably be REAL messy. Daddy is not coming for Eeekster, and there will be no trip up over Rogers Pass to Missoula. I do not see a stroller ride for Eeekster neether...
Happy Friday to you and CONCATS on being one of the DOTD today...we hope you have a nice warm and snuggle day in the house and you get lots of extra love and some special goodies.
