AYLA:  NO, I dint eat a toy mouse.

Easy Like Sunday

TBT:  Early Morning Pictures...

Iza likes ta sleep in the corner, where the waterbed waves are least as a move around in my sleep.  Marley sleeps up higher on the corner.  But he slipped down between the waterbed mattress and frame and found some joy.

First, it was rather snuggy (I assume) and second, Iza started grooming his head.  Marley loves that.
Just look at his happy smile and utter contentment...
Iza finally stopped, so Marley squirmed out of his waterbed/frame captivity.
But it was sure a good start to an Easy Sunday!

Caturday Saturday

MARLEY:  I hopped down off the rail to this new blankie I saw folded up.  It was NOT what I expected!  Fer one thing, it crinkled loudly an I dont like crinkly noises.
Fer another thing, it was all wobbly an saggy an I had trouble walkin on it.
Mebbe iffen I stand real still...
I think its time ta get off; I feel a bit odd...

Garden Tour Thursday

IZA:    Hi an welcome to the Garden Tour.  Fer once, it isn't raining.  I'm back here behind the Coneflowers.
And Marley is joining us back by the small pond.  It a TWO-FER!
You can see more Coneflowers above.  But THE flower ta see this week is the lilies below!   They are SPECTACULAR and they smell great too.  Like perfume.
The Torch plants are opening up, and will get fuller of flowers.
And be careful walkin here!  The blackberries are fruiting, but some stems are on the ground and they have thornies.
The Black Eye Susans above are blooming too.  And THOSE are just the volunteers from past years fallen seeds!

I love the Summer blooms.  They are the showiest.

Now lets get up on the deck in the shade and roll around and have some treats.  Today, there are ONLY treats.  MOL!  TBT decided that this time.  There are crunchy ones and chewy ones, fishy ones and poultry ones, Nippy ones and, well, non-nippy ones.  And we have 2 drinks.  One is clean pond water with nip.  The other is cream and toona juice.  We drink out of the pond all the time, so its OK.

Thank you all fer coming on todays garden tour with me (OK and Marley)...

Worrisome Wensday

AYLA:  We had another Stranger in the house today!  TBT says we better get used to it cuz there are THINGS he is havin done in and around the house fer a few months.

We dint see this ourselfs, cuz we were stayin safe out in the garage, but TBT kindly took some pictures so we could see what was goin on afterwards.  This guy came and sealed our front door and attached a humongous fan.  He was tryin ta suck all the air out of our house!  Apparently, he was tryin ta learn how leaky our house was.
He hadda bunch of gadgets to measure it.  And our house seems ta be leaky!
So it seems that more Strangers will be comin ta do some, um, "anti-leaky" werk soon.

We are NOT thrilled...

When the guy left, TBT let us out of the garage.  Only it seemed like just Iza and Me.  Marley dint come runnin in with us.  So he thought fer a minnit and looked at the hole in the garage ceiling where the door-opener-machine is.  Sure enough, Marley stuck his head out and looked down.  He dint really wanna come back in at first.  But he finally did an hopped down onto the car.
The flashy-box was a little slow.  MOL!

Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  Iza an I were pawing at the deck door this morning.  Iza even dared special efforts ta wake TBT up.  An we dont usually do that (household rules).

But a birdie committed birdicide on the glass door and we WERE kinna anxious ta get out there and check it out. 
Amazingly, Iza DID get TBT up and moving, so he took this picture of it.

I wish I (OK "we") could claim the kill, but it was stiff before we got near it.  We (and TBT too) figure annything stupid enough to crash into the winders is fair games fer US.  HE calls it "Evolution In Action".  WE call it "Play Time".

Iza an Me played with it fer an hour.  It dedded itself, so who cares.  We just wanted ta get at it before some darn varmint did.

So OUR Day got off to a real good start!  We hope yours did too.

Easy Like Sunday

AYLA:  We are all just loungin around near the deck door (well thats where the sun comes in, ya know) waitin fer TBT ta get up, feed us, an let us outside.  Which is sort of around Noon.  Which sort of keeps us away from the Morning Mousies. 

But we've learned that walking all over him in the morning has no effect, so we have given up on that.  We just enjoy the morning sunpuddles when they appear.  And wait.  And Wait.  AND WAIT!  We know what yer thinking, but he's good enough in his awake times that its worth not biting his ears.  He has Magic Fingers and thumbs to open food cans, and open doors and all that...

Well annyway, we are just chillaxin this morning...
I'm checkin on Marleys ears.  He is allus clean as new snow mostly, but he sometimes gets a tick, so I look for them.  
None today.
(But I like licking his ears annyway)
We hope ya are all having a good Easy Sunday too.

Caturday Saturday

AYLA:  I hope ya dont mind Im just sittin up on the shoe rack.  TBT puts these bloo towels up there just fer ME.  I eat most of my meals up there too.  But not where I nap.  There is another lighter bloo towel on the shoes on the other side where I like ta eat (in peace).
As I AM a Princess, it does take a BIG folded towel ta make me comfy up here on all these shoes.  
But since I GET those big fluffy folded towels fer nappin on, that's OK.  I would tell him they wernt OK if they werent, of course.  But they are.

I watched him preparin my nap towels once (once is enough when he gets it right).  He folds the BIG towels lengthwise edged to middles first.  THen  he folds in the top halfway an the bottom halfway, then in half again.  That way, there are NO edges to bother me.

An that's really impawtant when yer a Princess.

And that PEASANT, Iza, cant bother me up here, which also matters...

Almost Werdless Wensday

We were mentally high-pawing each other.
