I am so helpful. I love doing the dishes! I don't think my efforts are appreciated sometimes.
I am getting my beauty rest. How am I doing?
I really think it was MY turn to do the dishes....rats!
Do I hear someone calling me?
I hope it is time for supper.
I might be hungry enough, that I might not leave anything leftover.
It was a beautiful day!
Even if we lost an hour of it due to the time change!

Mike: I can sees you evfurry body!
Our mombean was away - again - helping out with granbean - again. Granbean is fine but needed an new 'lift' chair so she could be more comfortable and get out of it much easier, so she helped to get her one.
Wait a minute! I, me, could use something like that too. Yes, very comfortable and I would like to have it all to myself!
Look at this! I have to share the sofa with Cookie and it looks like he is about to fall off the edge! Okay, I could live with that, because then I could really stretch out without him there.
Here is my sisfur, Mindy
She is waiting for the squirrel to show up.
The squirrel was here this morning. Look, I will show you.
It was in our window feeder. Oh, so, so, close!
You want to know who else showed up for food?
Yes, stray kitty. She comes every day. She also visits several of our neighbors, and they also leave food for her. Okay I am a tiny bit jealous of all the attention and food she gets, however, I do appreciate a comfortable sofa, even if I do have to share it. Oh, and a warm place to sleep!
Well that's about it for my reporting.
Oh, I almost "forgot" to say a few words about my brofur, Moe. I'll try to keep it nice.
It is hard though, because Moe is also a bit strange. I mean, see how he has to put his paw in the water dish when he takes a drink!!
Is he the only cat in the world that does this?
Have a great weekend everyone.

We are still getting lots of storms, everything was shut down on Sunday. However, our 'beans were able to get out and celebrate dadbean's birthday on Saturday. Happy Birthday to you 'dad'!!
While our mombean was away at grandbean's recently, she took some photos of the bird "TV" that our grandbean can see from her window.
This is a male cardinal
Mike: We do not get these (licking my chops) ) birds coming to our bird feeder at all.
I will show you the female cardinal.
I think her bright orange beak is very 'girly'
I will show you the landscape at granbean's. Early one morning, our mombean took this photo - there was no wind to disturb the snow piled up on these branches.....I was safe at home enjoying this sunpuddle!
Guess who is back on our doorstep?
Yep, stray kitty is back, eating our food!
We have lots right now, so we can share it, I guess. Our mombean does not think this kitty is a stray, but certainly neglected. It followed her and our next door neighbour when they went for a walk around the block - a 3 kilometer trek! Mom thought it deserved a snack. I for one would not want to wander the neighborhood in this weather!

Our mombean is back home after being away helping grandbean with her physio appointments. In the meantime, I will demonstrate how self sufficient we kitties need to be.
Whenever the fridge door is open - make the most of it!
Dadbean took good care of us, but just in case I might miss one of my snacks, I made sure to quickly take action - the good stuff is on the top shelf!
I know, for instance, that Cookie's leftover cat food is in here - he never finishes his meals, which I do not understand!
See that chicken pie? These shelves are packed with good things. It is so hard to decide what to have first!
It is important to stock up on food, a big snowstorm is expected tomorrow and we need to be ready!
For all of you who are already experiencing this large weather system, still to the south of us, .....stay safe and warm!
We also heard of flooding in the United Kingdom across the Atlantic Ocean, we hope everyone is safe and dry.

Our typist, aka mombean, will be back soon to receive our dictation, and update our blog. In the meantime, although we miss her lots, we know grandbean needs her more than we do and our dadbean is doing his best, filling in on the daily chores. He takes our intructions very well - he is doing a great job. We are proud of him and happy too!!
Photos will have to come at a later time.
Purrs from all of us,

This is how you spend Tuesday. I mean mom just finished vacuuming the sofa and getting rid of our cat fur - now I have the hard job of putting all that fur back on it. It is hard work, I need a rest.
Don't tell my humans, but this table is where I found this lovely sunspot!
I got this chair first and it's way at the end of the living room. It is quiet and cozy here.
While the other cats are getting their 'easy on', I think I will do some bird watching or hunt around in the kitchen to see what's cooking. In any case I want to wish everyone a great Tuesday.

Cookie: I am authoring our blog today.
I have decided that we are participating in the The Saturday Photo Hunt and the photo theme today is 'vast'
Humm, had to think about this and nothing was coming to mind, so I had ta look it up on the internets; it could mean size, quantity or even an area.
I looked through our photos and found some of our local landscape taken a week or so ago, before the blizzard came.
We live in an area where there are a lot of beaches and in winter, without the crowds of beach goers, the landscape looks deserted and of course - vast.
This one is only minutes away. The tide is out. If you look close you can see seagulls riding the waves.
This beach is also a short drive away. A great time to get photos is at sunset.
The north Atlantic Ocean lies beyond the horizon. The ocean is also vast.
This photo was taken the same day as the one above, a couple of weeks ago and within a few minutes drive of the other two.
These beaches are part of a large bay - St. Margaret's Bay in Nova Scotia. There is an active lobster fishery here, although no boats were spotted that day.
These beaches in winter are actively used by people walking dogs or people who enjoy being outside on a nice sunny day.
I am throwing in a bonus photo, nothing to do with vast, unless you count the ice this duck is walking on. This duck was photographed on one of the ponds behind the beach in the first photo.
Have a great weekend everyone!

The storm that arrived yesterday, has passed by, and we are thankful!
We won't bother relating all the details about the blizzard (we are all fine and the sun is shining) instead here is a photo of some of Jack Frost's work on our window.
Here is Mindy watching bird "TV" as this hungry woodpecker enjoys the suet cake.
While the sun peeps out from behind the clouds and the patches of blue get bigger and bigger - we are enjoying our cat tree by the window.
Cookie is in the "basement", but he gets to have the heating pad, so he is very happy and cozy.
Mike is trying his luck in the kitchen, guess he is having a 'snack attack'.
Have a great Thursday everyone!

I have been looking out of our window this evening and we have enjoyed a very nice and sunny, but cold day.
This is the view of the last rays of sunshine, maybe for a while
Here is another ray
It is sunset.
Sometime tonight and into tomorrow, which will be Wednesday
we are getting lots of snow and wind, a blizzard in other words.
Arrrrh, not the news I wanted to hear! I prefer my window watching to be full of signs of squirrels and birdies.
I am glad that this heating pad is turned on, snowstorms bring on high and cold winds
I think that I will take a long winter's nap
Sounds good to me Cookie, I will do the same! I got the best chair, the best spot.
I intend to eat and sleep - or is it sleep and eat?
I'm too tired to figure this out. Plus I need to distribute more hair on the new sofa... makes it.....comfortable!
Wish us well during Wednesday!

I am wishing there was no glass between me and that yummy looking squirrel!
It is so close and yet all I can do is watch and wish!
That creature is so annoyingly close
Sometimes I see another squirrel attempting to snack on that suet cake. This does not work out so well because these critters do not like to share and instead chase one another all over our yard. All I can do is watch and utter some bad words.
Mindy, just relax and enjoy the show, why waste energy fretting?
I am "chill_axing" and that works for me.
Nothing is going to move me from this heating pad, I got here first and I am going to have the best snooze ever!
Did you say 'snooze' Cookie? Good idea, think I will try that. I am wishing on Wednesday that I had found that heating pad first!
We wish our visitors a great Wednesday however you want to spend it!!
