Lookie....

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial weekend. It went waaaay too fast for me!

 

We had a whole list of projects lined up, but none of them got done. Instead, we decided to put new hardwood floors in our bedroom and hallway. I love the beautiful dark wood, but talk about a lot of work! 

New wood flooring

This is the second year that we’ve done ‘updates’ to the house on Memorial weekend. Next year, hubby swore that we’re going to Hawaii instead…no more construction. Deal! I win both ways. *big grin* 

 

We also have a new addition to the family…

Bengal Cat

This little guy is a Bengal cat. We adopted him from our son. I’m such a sucker for animals. I can’t believe how much this cat loves to look up—just to see what type of mischief he can find. I think we’ve had a crash at least once a day so far. *sigh* 

 

Much to our surprise, it’s love at firsts sight (er, give or take a few days). It hasn’t been a week, and the cats are all in love with each other.

These two knuckleheads are inseparable. They do everything together, even go into the basement at night to ‘hunt’ mice. (Such a guy thing!) They’ve caught four so far…in less than a week. Yuck!

 

What about you? Did you have a good weekend? Did you do anything exciting?

 

Turtle Brownies...

It’s been a dreary day today—well, a dreary week—full of rain and clouds. To cheer myself up, I purchased some yummy, delicious, gooey Turtle Brownies. Don’t they look awesome?!

Well, they taste even better!

I may or may not have posted a note on them : Poisonous! Do not touch!

Hubby, I know you’re reading this….you’ve been warned.  ;-P

World War Three...

The battles between the two cats has settled down…some. Instead of all-out war, they engage in minor skirmishes. Charming, the intruder, buzzes our forty pound main coon, trying to get him to come out and play. Sam—a bigger, lazier cat you’ve never seen—tolerates the shaggy gray pest, but doesn’t engage. Poor baby. At least they no longer need to be separated!

Speaking of pests, Charming has become quiet the mouser. Last night, past midnight, the house erupted with noise. Hubby got up and a little while later, I heard more crashing and loud swearing. Apparently, Charming caught a mouse and the dog decided he wanted in on the action. Hubby was in the way…lol.

This is the third mouse the cat has caught this week…and the third mouse the dog has stolen. Poor kitty. All his hard work stolen by a bigger, larger bully. I don’t complain, because the dog snatches up the mice and runs outside with them, which means I don’t have to deal with the creatures.

All I can say is ewww! Mouse! Yuck!

Here is a picture of the bully…er, Max…playing in the nice weather after such a long winter. I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day and enjoyed the beautiful weather!

 

 

April? Are you sure?

I woke up to this…

Car with Snow

 

Yes, that’s snow. It wasn’t even 30 degrees this morning. I had frost on my windshield, but I refused to get out and scrap it off. I guess I asked for it, since I already put away my scraper.  :-? 

What the heck!? At least it’s not the measurable snow that my parents received. Oh, and even better news? We’re supposed to get even more snow to welcome the beginning of May.  *oy vey*

Are you having any better luck with the weather? Oh, wait, maybe I don’t want to know. I’ll be jealous if you tell me it’s 80 and sunny. *pouts*
