Ugh, in the words of Nancy Kerigan, WWWWWHHHHHYYYYYYY!!!!!????? MOL! I cannot believe we're getting 6-12 inches of snow on Friday. I am NOT kidding! We couldn't be sicker of this stuff and mom went out and cleaned up some more of her garden today. Whenever she does that the neighbors stop in their cars and tell her, "now I KNOW it's spring because Lisa is in her garden, that's my sign". People walking their dogs and kids in the neighborhood always make a point of walking by our house, stopping and smelling the flowers.
We have one really naughty man that mommy can't catch in the act though. He's so cheap, instead of buying his girlfriend flowers, he walks the neighborhood with a pair of scissors and cuts other people's including my mommy's. Oh boy that makes her really mad. He cuts her tulips every year and our neighbor caught him once and she yelled at him. He said he was cutting them for his girlfriend. Can you believe that guy? Mom said she wants to catch him, follow him and tell his girlfriend on him. Heh heh. Jerk.
Because so many people are still getting cold, rain and snow we thought it would be nice for us to publish links to mommy's google albums where she has pictures of her gardens from every season there. There's also some pictures of us that a lot of you haven't seen before. There are many different albums in each but for some stupid reason when she updated her Picasa program, they put them in two different places and now she's stuck. So we're putting the links for both sites. Feel free to browse everyone and enjoy some spring and summer colors! When you go on the page the link takes you to, each picture that has a little green nodule underneath is actually a separate album. We have TONS of pictures in each of those.
First albums site
Album site 2
We're in the 5-10 inches range and it's supposed to start Thursday night and make Friday morning's commute "hazardous."
We're supposed to go to our vet Friday @ 10:45... maybe we won't have to go if it snows as much as they predict !
Ooooh, you could get away with it Nuk. Tell your meowmy it's just too dangerous and if she REALLY loved you she wouldn't risk your life that way, MOL!!! Guilt is always a handy tool. MOL! My mom is supposed to do her groceries that day too, that's her pay day! I want some nom noms!
Lacey, you have got to be fooling us?? 6 - 12 inches of snow?? That's craazy! It's been pretty chilly here too, but I don't think we're supposed to be getting more snow. And that guy cutting flowers from neighbors yards? That's also craazy! We've got a lot of birdies around now and Mom's bulbs are coming up, but it just needs to warm up a little!
We looked at your mom's photos in the first link, but the second one just took us to the Picasa site. Pretty photos in the first albums link!
Love & sandpaper kisses from Gumpy
It did? I could swear it works, I tried it. Let me check.
Lacey... you furs fron New England get this stuff this late!! ( ok, maybe not often, but it's not rare!) We're getting it now, 2in tonite, with more tomorrow nite!!! ( and we're only 40 miles from BALTIMORE!!!!)
Oops, I don't know why that posted again. I just came back to look at your diary and check out your mom's links and my post reappeared!
Okay guys I fixed that second link for the other album site. It should work now, try it again! No, it's not rare Kringle but it's not fun either. We never know what we'll get here in NE, it's crazy!
MOL! I deleted it Gumpy, I saw that.
You know what Gumpy? I was thinking you must not have looked at all the pictures because there's no way you could get through all of those that fast. When you go on the page the link takes you to, each picture that has a little green nodule underneath is actually a separate album. We have TONS of pictures in each of those.
You're right, Lacey, we didn't click on the little green nodule at first. We just did and saw many more photos. What pretty flowers!! We'll go back and relook at the photos now that we know there are more to look at!
MOL! Mommy was in the shower and she thought, "wait a minute! they can't possibly look at ALL those pictures that fast!" Take your time, there are many to look at. something pretty to view when you're having a tough day.
I haven't looked at them yet, because I'm trying to keep running to other diaries, I'm only one step ahead of the Catfather!!
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, it's because of me that he ordered BAD WEATHER(DA - DUM!). He's looking for me because I called him a hamster!!!! He's putting toys in my bed!!!! Oh no!!! I'm in BIG TROUBLE! I may have to join the Kitness Protection Program!!
(see Simba's diary...)
Luv to ALL!! Tink
Nice going Tink!
Was that SARCASM???!!!
ME? Noooooooo!!! Just teasing ya Tink! You gotta know who to poke fun at. The Catfather ain't one of dem! MOL
Our mommy says your mommys photos are 'breathtaking' and she should frame them and sell them. She's good....and the garden...it is a spiritual experience. Thankyou! I would nibble those flowers if I could.
Very nice photos Lacey! Mom was just writing in another kitty's dairy that she was supposed to fly to Baltimore today to attend a conference, but something came up and she cancelled at the last minute. Now that she hears there is snow in the east, she is glad she didn't go. In the meantime, we are having a heatwave! This weather is crazy!
I hope your Mom catches that flower thief in the act - what a jerk!
Thank you furry much Natalie. Luke! How can you tease me with your heatwave! Ohhhhh, that's not fair. I don't if the snow is going all the way to Baltimore but the airports will probably be all messed up so she would have probably been stuck there. So now she can stay home with you guys! Whoo hoo!
I know huh? Some people are just so rotten! Mom told all the neighbors that if they see that guy, to tell him she has a hidden camera right there (even though we don't, heh heh).
I think Kringle finally LULLED the Catfather to sleep, because it's been very quiet for awhile now. Mom showed me many of the GORGEOUS photos - WE LOVED THEM! We marked it so we can go back and get a taste of summer whenever we want to keep us going. Also LOVED the Autumn photos, and all the photos of Finney & Lacey, esp the ones from 2008! LOVED seeing Moufasa & Midnight too! The only ones we skipped were the SNOW photos - we'll go back in July to check them out, you know, once it seems like we made WAY TOO BIG A DEAL OVER WINTER - MOL!!! We'll say, "It wasn't so bad - why were we complaining so much??" Can't wait for that!
Thank you VERY muches for sharing this with us! We really LOVE it!
Also, mom says she steals Lilacs from around our town to have the smell in the house - but it's cuz we are in an apartment & don't have our own. She doesn't get them from the more noticeable spots on the bushes. If people are out she will ask first and they always say "Help Yourself!" But planted flowers she would never do that! Especially as a gift! That's in VERY POOR TASTE!!!
Your gardens & flowers are truly beautiful, and you are very talented at photographing them! You should at least enter some of those photos in a nearby fair! You could get colored ribbons that are almost as beautiful as Catster Ribbons! Luv, Tink
Thanks furry much Tink! I don't know if we'll ever get to that point about thinking we made a big deal out of winter. Mom HATES winter so probably not, MOL. I wonder what that guy's girlfriend thinks of him bringing home cut flowers from people's yards! He probably lies about it.
I'm certain that somebody like that gives himself away in other actions, and goes thru a lot of girlfriends...
Maybe we'll get lucky and he moved away! There are other trouble makers but that's the one that really makes mom mad!
MORE snow on Friday?! Oh you poor things! And after your mommy did all that work in her garden too! I did hear that a nor'easter was going to hit New England on Friday and I guess you're in for it! A lot of kitties are writing that it's snowing right now where they live. Where we live it's only supposed to rain tonight and tomorrow and we'll get some snow and rain mixed on Friday -- or so they say! Since my sister is moving on Friday, something tells me it's going to be bad here too. Purring that the storm passes you by!
Thanks Kaci, I think the garden will be fine. This is not really that unusual. Mom didn't plant anything at all, it's the perennials that are coming up. She's just been out there raking and cleaning the whole thing up. Cutting the dead dry stuff off. The snow will hopefully melt pretty fast since it'll be almost 50 by Sunday. It would be even better if we only got a couple of inches and it just kept nudging more north of us. blah. We just want sunny days and warm enough to keep the windows open. Mom is anxious to put out her birdbath because that's when all the birdies really go nuts and come in this yard. Hope you guys don't get a slippery mix of stuff Kaci! Tell your mommy to be careful if she has to drive.
It's supposed to be 80 here on Friday. Our mom has been working in the flower garden, too. I think that's why she's been moaning and groaning a lot.
We're going to go look at the photos!
Yeah, my mom's not used to it either now and her back is hurting her pretty good. Plus she has fibromyalgia but believe it or not, working in the garden in the warm sun helps it a lot! It's her therapy. Another one taunting me with their warm weather!
MOM! Can we go and visit Beepers and Ashlynne please!!???
Simply gorgeous photos! Your Mom has an eye for capturing the delicate beauty of flowers and the furry beauty of kitties.
I can see just how much love goes into both ;)
Beautiful photos! My momma loves flowers too.
Those are beautiful flowers... do you ever try to nom them though? hehehe. I'm so sorry it's snowing for you guys, that's so unfair. We feel bad complaining about the heat now but we didn't get a spring. It went right from raining, cold, and dark all day long to insanely hot overnight. We need to average our weather together and get the spring we've been purring for!
Thank you so much Gabby, Jezebel and Simone! No, we don't go outside so we don't try to nom them but other kitties do and sometimes they roll around in them too.
oh my catness the flowers are beautiful and so are you and Finney your mom is awsome with the camera and the garden! hope your spring comes soone mom is traing for that Breast Cancer Awareness walk and the weather is being so spring like here, oh we are so glad it is not to hot for her. Sure hope your mom feeling better.
