Mum then came home to watch a bit of Project Runway. Some of those home made burgers for lunch, while the dishes soak and the washing is done. Then mum is going to get stuck into the rest of the housework. She wants it all done by 3pm then she can sit with me and read her book or watch some tv.
She's not going out tonight either - it's a night in for the ladies of Chez Q. On the menu will be pork chops with mustard potatoes and broccoli for dinner for mum, and a fancy feast for me. Sunday has lots of plans, so mum is happy to have a home day. Enjoy your Caturday!!
PS The storm was over by about 4pm, and it is calm although a touch cool. So I have popped outside for to do my sniffing around the property and mum has the door open while the dinner cooks and the washing dries. We know we shouldn't moan about our piddly storm as so many of our friends have lots of snow at the moment in the Northern hemisphere. Roll on the first day of our summer season tomorrow!!

Cottage Tails made me. It is very comfy and cosy to snuggle on and a good place to nap. Mum rushed home after a busy old day at work. She was going to have her usual Friday night treat of a burger and fries with a vanilla milkshake, instead she got some salad and meat and buns and made her own burger, which was full of nice fresh crunchy lettuce and beetroot. Then the washing machine has been buzzing away, a few leaves were picked up, but as it was a windy old evening, there will only be more in the morning.
Mum is excited for the weekend as she has some fun things planned. She has worked the past two weekends, so she appreciates the time she gets off. We hope you all have fun plans too.

It is getting close to being the season of pulling out the decorations ready for Christmas. Mum bought these little string of lights last week, and loves how they sparkle on the mantelpiece. She doesn't need any more, as we have plenty of other little bits and pieces from years gone by. Mum likes her decorations on the simple side, and her and her friends chuckle each year as they search for the ugliest decorations they can find. This year they found a garish monkey on a unicycle, but nothing beats the neon blowfish from ten years ago. The girls wonder who bought them, and if they still hang them up on their tree. Mum doesn't have much storage or room for a big tree, so she usually just have a miniature tree and lots of sparkly lights.

Mum says she wishes she was a cat. Anyways she is home and ready for her evening. A cold wet evening means she gets a night off from pulling weeds in the garden. She has some salmon with lemon in the oven, and spicy mustard potatoes with some broccoli cooking for her dinner. I have had my feast and made it back to the bed for more snoozing.
Monday, November 25, 2013
So keep warm and cosy wherever you are and snuggle up get some more zzzzzzs. Remember 22 hours a day rest is what makes a happy cat.

Hope your Sunday is good. Mum had to go into work twice last night and got about 3 hours sleep. She has already been in once tonight, and hopefully will get a bit more time snoozing.
Enjoy and put your feet up.

Dinner had to wait til the evening had cooled down. Fresh broccoli with lemon, potatoes with mustard and a sirloin steak, then fresh spring strawberries. Me I am going to have a feast, although it is after 8pm and I haven't told mum that I am ready for dinner yet.
Chores were done around the house, and mum says she loves these days when the doors to the house are open all day and light breeze blows through. Where we live is relatively safe, so mum can have the doors on the deck open til she heads to bed about 11pm. She is on call tonight, so hopefully will get a bit of sleep tonight.
Enjoy your Caturday everybuddy - do something fun.

Taylor Swift sings a popular song about being 22, mum likes Taylor Swift - she enjoys her CDs and often puts them on and sings along while she does the housework. 22 at Chez Q refers to the amount of hours that mum thinks I slept yesterday and today. Yes folks that is a whole two hours of activity. I get up in the morning and do my private business, and then usually sit out here and check on the property. I come back in the early evening after dinner. Imbetween guard duty, I find a cosy spot and I nap. Life is good!!!!
Sunday, November 17, 2013
Hope your Sunday is just as relaxing.
Update: Movement at 11:30pm. Gone to visit mum and begged for a couple of temptation treats and then outside for a sniff and probably toilet stop. Big news though - I forgotted I didn't even ask for a fancy feast dinner tonight. I must need double the amount tomorrow night.

Me and the mumster were thankful this Thursday. Thankful for a good sleep in our comfy bed, a tasty dinner and a relaxed evening. We even had a touch of the sunshines today, and mum went for a walk in the afternoon which she enjoyed greatly.

We are sure many of our friends have watched the news tonight. We hope everyone can help with a few dollars to aid the international red cross or other organisations to help out. What a terrible tragedy, and we feel for all the people affected by the typhoon that struck over the weekend in the Philippines and Vietnam. We have donated some money - instead of mum going out for brunch/lunch over the weekend, she donated her money to relief efforts.

Hope you all get to take it easy today as well.

We had a good day on Caturday. The mumster and I slept in, and had a leisurely breakfast. There was washing done, the floors were swept, the carpets were cleaned, laundry folded, weeds were pulled, grass was mowed and raked, and groceries were brought. Mum resisted going to the shops and enjoyed her home day with me today - such fun!
Enjoy your Caturday - do something fun!!

She didn't sleep too well last night, so is hoping for not so much tossing and turning tonight. Although her body is telling her to go and nap (it's 6.40pm) she is going to resist, go and pull some weeds out of the garden and start the clothes washing. All of this should make her tired for tonight. I am glad that pussy cats have no trouble sleeping.
She has chased me round this evening with the furminator, so I am out hiding under the deck. I might come in later and forgive her.

Ginger Jasper had been sick for a long time, but he held on to stay with Carol and Barry as long as he could. We will miss him, and his days of sitting in the sun in the backgarden or snuggling with his mum and dad. Sweet dreams GJ.

We know that in many states in Australia the public cannot buy any fireworks, there are only organised public displays. Lots of people are trying to get that to happen here. Thankfully there are not the bangers that were around years ago, as they were only ever used to frighten people and animals.
Hope your night is more peaceful than ours.

Feast was put out for me, and spicy chicken was made by mum which she added to some lettuce and tomatoes, and put in a wrap for her dinner. There are still some strawberries left over, so there will be supper, but only after the dishes are done.
Hope your week starts well too!!!
Sunday, November 3, 2013
Mum went for a short walk, the day was not as nice as the weather man promised. There was a big disc of grey cold cloud over her part of the city. Groceries were bought. A big couscous salad will be made tonight, with some roast lamb. Strawberries and yoghurt will follow, and I will be content with a feast as usual.
We wanted to say Happy Birthday to big uncle. We hope you had a nice day, and we hear Miss Belle is baking you a fancy cake. She made a bright rainbow cake for mum with tasty buttercream icing - what a treat.
Enjoy your Sunday !!!

Mum was very pleased to see the sun was shining and for the first time in weeks she got to go to the market. She picked up onions, potatoes, tomatoes, corriander, bananas, zucchini, carrots, lettuce and a pomegranate. So lots of tasty meals are planned for the week ahead.
She then went and joined a friend for a big burger and to see the movie About Time, well worth a ticket price, mum even got tears in her eyes and she did enjoy it lots. Mum is quite happy to eat at 5.30pm, to the 6.15pm showing and be home by 8.30pm, suits her fine. Time to watch a show on the box and still head to bed for a spot of reading.
Enjoy your Caturday everybuddy.

Boy we are having more November rain, tis pouring again. No need to water the garden for a few weeks me thinks. Inbetween the showers, mum got out and picked up some leaves that had fallen in the garden and did a touch of weeding.
Luckily mum has a supply of tv programmes to catch up on. She has been watching Scandal, and Lost Routes with Griff Rhys Jones. Reading is underway too, and maybe a few chores will get snuck in to the evenings plans. A Friday night at home is a nice thing after a busy old week. Enjoy your first November Friday!!
