Last Monday of the Month

 
 
It is Monday and  a lovely sunny day, but cold.  Our humans tells us it is -2C. 
 
Cookie:
I wanted to go outside on the deck.  I put my nose out of the door.  Chilly.  I like comfort and warmth.  As you can see I am not happy.  I would like the temperature to be warm enough for me to go outside, so I can chew on some blades of grass.  But, the grass is so cold, even our rhododendron bush has curled up its leaves to preserve moisture.
 
However, I have just been told, that outdoor temperatures will eventually get much colder.  It is still only Fall.  Can we possibly simply skip Winter and go straight to Spring?
 
Moe:
 
You would have to give up the holiday season, Cookie!  You would miss the turkey that always gets baked.  Remember, we always get some of it to eat.
Our humans usually have some extra special foods that taste wonderful.  Last week they went to the Parade of Lights - it is the start of celebrating!
 
This is one of the floats in the parade, which lasted about two hours!  Look at that candy house!!
 
Mindy:
It is a lovely gingerbread house. However, I heard that it is not made of gingerbread.  It is very pretty though.
 
Mike:
I hope our humans start making those buttery, delicious cookies again this year.  I think they are called shortbread.  Much better than gingerbread.  Either way, I like to help with the clean up.  I love butter.....and cream, and the holiday season!

Brrrr that is cold! WE hope you get lots of sunbeams to help take the chill off and that gingerbread house float was so neat!

-2C would seem balmy right now. Sunday's windchill was about -20C in the AM and OMC, that's WAY too cold for November--or any other time. We're all for skipping winter, even the holidays, and heading right into Spring. :-)

Thanks for stopping by. Yes, the big part of the reno is done, as is most of the painting, but the little details like replacing trim, getting closet shelving up, etc., still remains and probably won't be finished till the new year. (The human has to find someone good she can afford do do the things she can't. Probably someone retired and just working under the table.)

It's cold here too....too cold too soon, as far as we're concerned!

Cookie, we think indoors is best when it's this cold.
We are also looking forward to this celebration season. There always seem to be tasty goodies around and Mom will share...most times ;) heehee

Brian, you just wanted to see if we are awake, ha, ha.

Sparkle said...

You can come vacation at my house in southern California, kitties! Of course, my human does not cook, so you may want to think twice...

Cathy Keisha said...

Brrr, that's cold. I think we could go right to Spring after Christmas. I don't like New Year's Eve cos there's too much noise.

Temperatures are here the same....brrrrr. Not worth Setting a paw outside, thinks Noah. Mjamm... Scones, that sounds delicious.
Have a great day!

It's getting cold here too, but I'm an indoor kitty so it doesn't bother me too much. I enjoy sitting on the heater vent during winter.

I hope you get cookies, but not too much. You don't want to get a tummy ache.

Pam said...

It's too cold for the kitties here also!

Christa J. said...

The photos of your cats are so beautiful.:-)

Mike, I hope your humans will soon have made the shortcuts. I will surely come again and hope to get some. :-)

Lots of warm greetins from Germany where it's cold, too.

Oh yes... shortbread is EXCELLENT! If a cat hangs 'round in just the right spot at just the right time, a cat can get a little bit of butter for his or her tummy. That's called, playin' your cards right, I think.

Flynn said...

It is cold here too. It was -4C last night which is too cold too soon. I went outdoors for a walk around the garden, and when I came back in, my fur was floofed out to keep me warm.

Ohhh, Gingerbread house - that looks yummy and all the other goodies too.,

We've been pretty lucky with the weather so far and we can still go out in our run, but #1 tells that probably won't last for much longer. Well, it's nice to snuggle indoors when it's cold outside!

Purrs,
