Happy Independence Day!

I changed my profile photo again to celebrate July 4th. There's a noon potluck meal tomorrow so mom is going to make the s'more pudding pie 1 more time for that. No fireworks in our town (unless any nearby house neighbors bought them). The next town over usually has a parade & stuff all day up to the fireworks at night, but that isn't going on until Saturday. Mom's gonna go have a little pre-concert fun at the street dance, then Sunday she's off to see Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Grace Potter & Jake Owen at Target Field. She is sooooooo excited! She leaves Sat night to sleep at her mom's and returns sometime Monday. Once we've reunited and had a little time together she'll be working on her concert pics from the standing only pit that surrounds the stage.

Next weekend is a 3 day local event with fireworks, parade, pancake feed & more. Not as fun as the concert but something to do in a town with nothing going on other than that and the county fair all year. Mom is considering entering photos of me for contest entry at the fair.

We have an excessive heat warning today so we're staying in and keeping cool. If this doesn't break with storms today it's gonna be a warm night.


Gonna be a hot one today

We're getting some of that July heat as we're under a heat advisory from noon to 10 tonight. Mom is going to limit her exposure to the hot hallways as much as possible by staying in our air conditioned apartment most of the day. It's only going to be in the 90's here so we'll probably get some bad weather later today.

Mom is used to this since she lived in GA from when she was born to just before her 25th birthday. She's planning to wear a tank top, shorts & flip flops like she did down south. She might even make some corn bread & sweet tea.


Stay cool my furriends

We (mom and I) realize that several furriends are probably dealing with the triple digit temperatures. That's not the case for us up here in Minnesota, though the humidity can even make the 80's seem yucky. We hope y'all are staying cool in this crazy heat wave. Mom keeps our apartment about 70 degrees all year, a temperature we can both live with.

I have long black fur so mom makes sure I have plenty of cool water available, and sometimes she'll put an ice cube in it for me if it's been out long enough. It feels great when I take a drink & groom myself.


Helter skelter day

Mom thinks she's gonna need an energy drink just to keep up with the rest of the afternoon! She just went out for lunch & getting some errands done (she got me 4 more cans of Fancy Feast gravy - my favorite!). She's taking a little cool down & rest break before give & take - she takes stuff she doesn't want or need and finds a few freebies she might want. Then she's gonna come back up for another little break, make a picnic supper & take off for a free brownie at the grocery store on the way to watch the talent show at the park. She'll have a break tomorrow before going to her cousin's daughter's birthday party on Saturday.

While she does all this I'm just staying home in the a/c doing my cat stuff, meow!


I'm off punishment fur now and we took photos

I was a little too amped up at 5:00 this morning (Mom nearly got out of bed to put me in the bathroom to calm down in the dark). I pulled the blanket covering the good chair halfway off, knocked down the tension rod with towel (sewn on) off the window under the a/c and made some noise. Mom doesn't think I need to see out each of the 3 windows in the living room, and if it weren't for the towel on the rod the afternoon sun beats in 'til sunset and makes it harder to cool our apartment in the summer. I was in my crate (except for eating & going to my cat box) from 9 am to noon for all the trouble I caused.

She's gonna resort to leaving my cat bed on the chair since I'm not loving it again lately & will be taking the towel & rod down from the window at night. She tries to play with me before bed but I don't always feel like participating. We cuddle on the recliner with the tv on.

I got a notice about a July 4th photo contest so Mom set up some patriotic props on the re-covered chair and I sat there with all of it for a brief photo session followed by a tasty treat!


So nice to stop & smell the rose for once

Mom and I are enjoying a peaceful weekend home together before things get crazy again. The rose she got at the meeting is starting to wither and I don't go outside so she wanted to capture a picture of me smelling the rose before it's thrown away. That's my new purrofile photo you see. Mom made sure I only sniffed it and it's a safe flower before letting me get that close.


Mom is mine all weekend!

Things are finally slowing down (fur now at least) so mom can stay home all weekend with me. We'll hang out, maybe watch a meowvie or 2. Tomorrow's birthday party has been moved to next week.

She is so tired from keeping up with Kenny Chesney's media appearances since last week, now we're getting to the end of that. She goes to see him in 16 days while I hold down the fort.

She's finally getting a response back for that design from home position she applied for, let's cross our paws she gets it! Once the bills & rent are all paid and we have enough food she doesn't feel like she has enough leftover, especially for the new camera she wants to buy.


Meow! How'd that cow get in here?

Oh, that's not a cow, it's mom in her cow costume! With the costume party this afternoon, she dug all of hers out a couple days ago to try them all on & take pictures. She has to take into consideration direct afternoon sun, 70+ degree weather and no climate control so she thinks she might be a pirate at this point.

She preferred the men's pirate costume cuz the lady ones don't seem so piratey. She just doesn't have any pirate boots so she'll substitute black flip flops. 166876592.405039.685846591&type=3&l=2be5521e38


DDP and storms

Thank meow catster for the feature and my furriends for the support.

Mom went to the movie this afternoon at the theater. She went out the back and was attacked by a crazy insane psycho bird that kept circling and diving at her. Good thing she's too big for that crazy bird to take her, she came back through the front side of the building and saw that stupid bird attacking another person out walking. Wonder if its got a nest nearby or what.

We just rode out a severe storm in the past couple hours. No tornado but still a lot of wind, hail, rain, thunder & lightning. I'm too brave and I scare mom by going by the window so she crated me and we stayed in the bathroom together.

Apparently we don't have hot water in our building 'til the plumber comes tomorrow. Mom can't wash the dishes tonight and will have to wait for it to be on tomorrow to get underway with the cleaning. She's considering DQ for lunch.


Smelling the rose without stopping

Mom really doesn't have time to stop & smell the roses at the nearby garden of 13,000 flowers so she brought a real red one home from the meeting yesterday & smelled it while walking back from across the road.

She's still so busy and can't seem to stay home at least 24 hours at a time just yet. She's hoping Sunday will be a little easier though she needs to get the chores & laundry done and wants to take a break for Madagascar 3 at the theater that afternoon. Monday she thinks she'll be home all day and will make something for the birthday potluck dinner, she usually makes a dessert.

I did just fine on my own though I tried again to get to a shelf behind the bedroom door & left a paper pirate hat on the floor & an empty pop can w/ tab in it was tipped over. She wants a ssscat refill so she may have to visit ebay to get one.
