It is finally summertime here in Big Sky Country. The sky is blue, the sun is shinering, and there is a nice breeze. Every morning mama gets up and opens the bay window in the dining room for me and Gunnie. Daddy calls it "smellervision" because we can watch, hear, and smell all the wonderful smells from outside. This is a yellow clover year, and the air is perfumed with the scent of sweet clover. The birdies are singing, and they like to sit on the fence. Sometimes I think they are teasering me. They just sit there and fluff their feathers and chirp. I think they are saying "Catch us if you can, Peekie." Then I do my little birdie cry. Mama says it is a sad, pathetic sound, but I am just talking to the birdies and saying "I wanna eat you, birdie!" After I say that, they usually fly away.
Mama has a new craft that she is trying. Auntie taught mama how to make paper beads. It is a cheap hobby (mama says that is inexpensive) because you mostly only need a bunch of paper and some glue. I like it because there are cool little scraps of paper all over in the craft room, AND mama gets all interested in what she is doing and forgets about me and Gunnie. Sometimes we can have lots of fun doing stuff mama would not like because she is working too hard on her paper beads.
I think I LOVE summertime!
Grammy and Meowmy and Aunt Brandy used to do that years ago. We had forgotten all about that. Left over wrapping paper is great for it too! Even if its crinkled. Your mommy will have to take pictures of her creations so we can all see them. Don't let her forget to make you a beautiful collar.
I know you love jewery.
Have a great day Peekie and family.
Glad you are enjoying the days! we go on the screened porch every day too. Smithwick would be happy to stay out there all day long. Have fun helping your Momma with her beads!
We love it when the windows are open too!
Isn't is great when the parents get distracted and we can make mischief!
