Easy Like Sunday Not

IZA:  Well, we still dont have the top platform replaced, so we arent reall thrilled today.  Oh, the replacement POST did arrive on Friday, but there is something TBT doesnt like about how it attaches.
 So we are unsettled around the missing platform...
But we are doin the best we can ta cope.

Caturday Saturday

We learned something about thistle seeds.  Well, ya see, last Winter, we had Goldfinches and Purple Finches crowding our thistle feeders.  It was great Birdie TV!

But then, when TBT bought new seed at the local store, none of the birdies came to eat.  We were very sad...

TBT did all he could.  He changed the seeds every couple weeks, but they just dint like them.  So he did what good Beins do an researched it. 

It seems that those Finchy birds only eat really fresh seeds.  And a lot of what is sold at stores isn't all that fresh.  And the seeds the Finchies liked were from an order of 50 pounds of the stuff from one company an the stuff they DINT like was the reglar bagged stuff at the stores.

Well, guess what he did?  Yeah, he hunted up that fresh stuff.  Its at Home Depot online.

So check that out iffen ya have those thistle seed feeders.  Don't worry, the Home Depot doesnt even know we exist.

The Finchies love it.  Our Birdie TV is suddenly active again, and even when TBT moves the feeders around so we cant just reach out an grab the birdies, they find the new spots.

Well, at least we get ta watch them.  Which is pretty good.

Freaky Friday

MARLEY:  We are waiting fer the replacement post ta arrive.  It's supposed ta come today.
It just feels really odd without the top platform.  We all liked it best.
But we gotta wait.
FedEx or UPS or USPS is bringing it.  We don't know who...
But we sure want it TODAY!

Garden Thursday

IZA:  Im not doin a whole tour today, cuz there just isnt much changed from the last time.  But our new little Knock-Out Rose bloomed an I wanted ta show that.  It looks real nice!  And looking nice is very impawtant with this rose cuz there is no smell to it.
And there are 3 more buds ready ta open too.  Not bad fer a rose that is only 9" high (it will get to 3' when it grows up).
But I wanted ta show it now, since TBT is gonna take cuttings from it ta start more plants and it wont look as good in a few days.

I'll leave the scraps all over the kitchen later tonite.

The Cat Tree Replacement Post

An update on our cat tree replacement post...  TBT discovered that the bottom post attaches to the base in a different way than the upper ones.  So he cant just move a low one up the the top.  So he is ordering a replacement post.

Happy Nipday

IZA:  I sure am glad it stopped RAINING.  We got 4" of rain, which isnt annything like what SOME places got, but it was a lot fer US here.  I havent been able ta get at anny of my Nip plants fer 5 days!  Yeah, TBT brought in a few leafs fer us, but its not the same...
 So I went straight fer the one in the dryest spot (unner the deck overhang).  First I took a DEEP sniff!
Then I rolled around on it.
 Then I nibbled...
An rolled...
An ate some more.
Ooohhhh... I think I might have overdone it just a bit!

Easy Like Sunday NOT

AYLA:  I have been busy the past few days, and it didnt make for a real Easy Sunday.  There are 2 parts (I like ta be organized).

First, I have been worried about that hurricane.  TBT kept watchin it reported ta be headed right for US, and I could tell he dint want THAT.  So I took some action.  I should remind ya all that I can be a bit "Witchy" (yes that is with a real "W", thank-you-very-much).  I levitate, I disappear, sometimes I am in 2 rooms at once, etc.  So I decided ta push the hurricane away from us here.

I spent 2 days stood up on the high shoe rack using my mental energies. 

I know SOME Beins have claimed ta do that hurricane-pushin thing, but it doesnt usually werk for them.  It werks fer me! The proof is obvious. 

Three days ago, the track was centered ta go dead-center right over us.  Now it is way out ta the ocean.  *I* did that!  You dont have to thank me; it was for entirely selfish reasons.  Hey, we're cats, selfish is normal.

But second, such efforts come with a cost...  Hurricanes have some mild powers too, and there was a backlash.  Right after I diverted the Hurricane, I left my high shoe rack sanctuary and went ta sit on the top platform of one of the cat trees.  Just as I jumped up to it, there was an EXPLOSION!

Does something look odd about this picture?

How about NOW?

OK, I'll make it obvious...

The top platform went BANG with ME on it.  I nearly had a kitniption!  And I may be down to 8  (or 7) lives.  It went all KA-FLOOEY.  Here are the pieces down on the floor...
 Obviously, it was a reaction from the Hurricane diverting werk.  I know, I know, those things are dangerous ta mess with, but it was impawtant!
I've instructed TBT to either repair it or replace it.  So far, he says it could go either way.  He says he could probly bust out the broken inside stuff what holds the post up an replace the "screw-in parts" with wood, glue, and screws.  Or he could order a new post with the "screw-in parts" built in like the original.  OR, he could take the lowest post we never sit in and move it to the top.

MY opinion is that the busted one has bad Mojo from the Hurricane backlash, and he agrees.  Do you think he should A) order a new post or B) move the lowest post ta the top?

Caturday Saturday

AYLA:  Marley isnt much innerested in TBTs foods.  Iza and ME are.  So when good-smelly plates are lowered ta the floor, we check them out fast.

Iza is pushy and noses in almost always.  I get annoyed...
I do my best ta get my fair share of chickie fat, but she is bigger.
Well, take THAT whap, Iza!  (It was a better whap in reality, but the camera is slow when I want it ta be fast and fast when I want it ta be slow, ya know?)
And its MINE!
She was reduced ta licking her lips and watching...
While *I* cleaned the plate...
For once...

Garden Tour Thursday

IZA:    Well, its Garden Tour Thursday, but not from THIS year!  It is wet and drizzly here today and TBT says it is likely to get wetter and downright stormy for the next 5 days.  Which means we are probably stuck inside for all that time.

So I decided ta see what the garden looked like LAST year at this week ta make things a bit cheerier.  Iffen we cant go outside ta look at the flowers, at least we can be reminded of sunnier days!

It was nice ta be out in the sun.
The Sedum were dark red...
The Butterfly Bushes were still blooming...
The Zinnias were thick and colorful...
We had the same Impatiens and Coleus, but they were bushier and taller...
The Hydrangea were in full bloom...
And the Nip was lush!
Hopefully, all this rain will encourage this years plants ta recover and bloom better before the season ends.

Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  I have the "lickities".  And since I like ta sit on the top of the chair where TBT sits, I have a focus...

His head hair...
*I* think it will help him grow more head hair.  
*HE* isnt so sure...
It tastes especially good after he werks hard outside.
Im not sure why, but it does.
He cringes after a while though.  Why?  
*HE* says he used ta have more hair before I started licking it.  
Not like I ever saw he had much to start with...

UPDATE:  I (Marley) am adding this...
