How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.
At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow.
It's warm still outside but nobody can keep from thinking about County Fairs, Candy Mice, glowing Pumpkins, and fire induced scents in the air.....Ahhhhh! There's even special moons this time of the year, I particularly like to stay up to look at the Harvest Moon myself. Diamond likes it when the moon with the halo shows up. Mom told her one time that if you count the stars inside the halo you know how many times it will snow. That Dog is nuts over snow.
Okay, Just got to say it's an honor to get DDP on the same day they released Luke! Seriously! And TCOTD what a great name and a great song, Mustang Sally. And to share the stage with my little brother Griswold and little Novie Wow! And Sarge! What a great DDP crew! Now my little brothers cute little face on the screen trumps anything I say today! He is cute!
Thanks for the last set of preezies I got the other day. Busy, busy, busy!
Kinda difficult to think about fall. It is still summer here so we really want to enjoy that before the endless snow comes.
Living in the frozen north is not all that much fun, unless you ski etc..Can you imagine me on skis? MOL
Congrats on being a DDP
Your little bro does look amazing on home page.
We are going to be around but kind of under the radar; if you would like a memento, please p-mail me. But like Kat told Gris
only if you don't mind it being late.
Congrats on the smacky paw, girl! I don't know if you read my diary but I will be creating a group called
The Smacky Paw Brigade. I will send you an invite.Hope you will join.
Have no idea what we will do. For now I just like the idea of an all girl group; for all smacky paws and smacky paw wanna bees! MOL
Oh yea, congrats on the DDP thing too.
TB it's still warm and humid here too. But you still can't help but think about it.
Kit Kat! Of course I know about your group! Can't wait to join!
Zoe I think you have a poet's soul.
Me? I need to enjoy today. Cause tomorrow, who knows?
Kit Kat is so happy you will join her silly group, she is jumping up and down (almost jumped on my head!) Kittens!
Teddy, you sound a little gloomy. Need to chat you can always pmail me. After all I'm your girl best friend.
Aw Zoe, no wonder I love you.I will p-mail you, maybe tomorrow? Mom needs to go out now and I am off for a nap.
Oh, can I join the Smackey Paw Brigade, too? Since I bit Samhain's foot... (whoops - wasn't supposed to say that!)
That is, since Samhain had her little accident, I've been much more (ahem!) ASSERTIVE. Who's the Alpha Cat now, baby?!
Well, apparently the new assertiveness hasn't helped her manners any! Congratulations, Zoe dear, on your lovely diary entry and getting DDP for it. We love ya!
Girls. Mom has your pictures for your Birthday diary ready. She'll either post it today or tomorrow. Probably tonight.
And maybe their is a bad bone in your body, Sleeper. You know what they say...It's the nice quite ones.
MOL! I'm not quiet anymore! And did you see the pic of you guys on the carpet yet?
Alright! A birthday diary!!! Which reminds me - Sleep, you've got to do a write-up today announcing the party.
Let me go check it!
Congrats on your DDP Zoe! Did I miss the Pirate story? :(
I love the poem, so does Mom! It's not Fall here yet, a high of 101 degrees here today. Normally we are in the 80's this time of year. :(
Congratulations on your DDP!
I noticed that it was still hot all across the country! We had a couple day tease last week. One day it 60 degrees was the high! Geez it felt good.
Monida, no you didn't miss it. Mom had writers block big time plus her allergies are killing her.
Concats on DDP Zoe....fall is here too! Love that poem.....how is Gris settling in?
Concats sweet Zoe, ur diaries r great! I love's to read 'em, pawsome girl! Love da poem, makes me shiver but a nice kin' o' coolness in da air now. Is 64 here dis nice Fall mornin', 'BOUT time! I love's da coolness ' I ran all 'bout's dis mornin' 'n chased Sam right up da stairs! He lubbs it up there 'n me too! Sleeper u go girl, 'n Samhain we're lookin' furward to ur Birfday Pawty on Tues night, sounds pawsome! Mommy haz been unner da weather too latey, I haz to beg her to let me purrlay but her really not feel good at all. Zoe, mom know's all too well 'bout sinus's 'n it's bad when it goes down to into da lungs area. Hope her feels better!!!
Love 'n head nudges,
Harley, Gris is just fine. He's out and about now getting along pretty good. He is still going to spend his nights and during the day when Mom is at work in the bathroom. She wants to do that just in case. If the keep getting along fine she might just lock the cats up in the bedroom toward the end of the week.
Diamond seems to be intimidated by Gris already. To many Zach smacky paws in the past. MOL!
Note form Mom to all adults: it's insane how getting a kitten will remind how big your cats really are. When I hold Zach he feels like 60 pds of pure muscle now. And I've noticed just how much weight Zoe has put on sense here last set of steroid pills and shot for her allergies.
It's going to be cool when Gris grows up. At first glance him and Zach will look like twins. But you can't overlook Zach birthmarks on his nose and his buttons.
The Mama here: Yeah, I pick up Sleeper and it's like lifting a sack of kitty litter! Hard to believe she once weighed half a pound or so!
Congrats on the DDP!
Happy diary pick Zoe!
I love the different moons and wish I could go to a county fair and see the sweet livestock animals; they are so cute.
You must have had a great celebration at home with two in your family being diary pick all in the same day - now that's real family togetherness!
Love Ginger xo
Its fall over here already!! But its been rain, rain, rain... Although tonight we have our first wind warning! Mom says she loves the sound of wind whistling past the house.
We agree that comparing kittens to adult cats there is such a big difference! Even comparing me now to when I came to Mom at two weeks old really amazes Mom (she often overlooks how much I have really grown). I was 200g at two weeks and am now approximately 5lbs (2300g).
You are so lucky Blade! Fall is one of Mom's favorite seasons and she's missing it! :( It is supposed to be in the low 70's today, then back up to the 90's again.
The Dixie Classic fair is the fair to go to around here. Mom says they will probably go two Saturday from now. Ginger, they have swine races!
Next Saturday they are taking the new sheet metal baby to the BIG Last of the Season car show. Wish us luck (that nobody touches the car)and we win a trophy.
I can't wait to watch the leaves turn in our back yard. Mom said she wishes she had the back yard for a Sugar Maple.
Mom just checked the 10 day forecast and it looks like we are going to have highs between 70 and 83. Mom has got to get our Mums for the front stoop. So Blake we are with you. Tig I'm sorry.
Zoe, I purray that NO ONE touches the "new sheet metal baby", I wouldn't want to be the person who does.....keeping paws crossed that you come home with a big trophy.
The car has 4 1st place trophies already but we told the old owner to keep them and he did. Don't blame him.
