Thankful Thursday

Today, i am thankful for, my grounds keeping skills. I have successfully covered our pool- as its MUCH too cold to swim now. I am sad that my beans will not spend as much time out here as they do in the summer. My boy is off to college now, and his problems seem to be finally leaving. He's a healthy boy again (as much as he can be) and hanging out with friends again.

If you follow me up over the cover- careful now not to step on the blue bags, they have water in them to keep the cover in place. :) I like to sometimes step on them by 'accident' i like the swoosh it makes.

These are some Easter lilies sister got in my boys honor back in spring while he was having such a hard time. She told dad that when the blooms were gone, cut them back and take them out of the pot. And he said they'd just die and never bloom again. Dad was right again. Oh dad. But now we have Easter Lilies! Friends- if you don't know this- never let your furbaby anywhere near a lily by herself- they are poisonous to dogs and cats! (and probably hammies too! Don't eat the lilies!) Luckily i've never been one for eating plants, but tesla eats ALL plants, so mom can never see her lilies when she gets them, has to keep them locked in a room and watch closely if tesla is there.

Alright sister, right this way. This is my wonderful garden. See how nice i kept it? However, we're getting towards the end of the season... not much i can do with it now. Some of the tomatoes are getting buggy. I don't like buggies, so now i've let my minion do it. Dad.

A nice shot of the tomatos.

Another angle.

As a way of helping the environment also, we take all the left over vegetables and put them BACK in the soil. So things grow wild in it, because its so happy and healthy! I don't think this counts as a dare though :(

Now for the main event! (i will get to commenting tonight when sister is home from work!)

Chapter 2:The Pirate Kitties.

Sister and i are new to this blog. But, we like what we see. The story all started with 2 crazy kitties. Captain Jack, and Sir Dante. They sailed the world. In fact, they're leaving for another pirate trip tomorrow- and are taking other kitties with them, for meow like a pirate friday.

We like that they look for treasure and bring their friends along its so sweet!

The newest member to the crew, is Fagin. Named from the wonderful character in Oliver Twist, (he was always my favorite in the movie when i was a kid). There was some hardship in the beginning about keeping the name. However, the CB stood behind the name and tried to help them decide what to do.

The name was kept, and i couldn't be prouder of anyone. We were so incredibly happy when we read about this!

I'm looking forward to learning more about these kitties, and joining them, if they'll have me, on some crazy adventures!

My favorite things about this blog :

1. They're pirates. Duh.

2. They're all very handsome mancats.

3. We can tell by the pirate ship their beans let them have, they are loved very very much.

And any blog that shows your beans love you, is a blog we like reading. Its the most important thing ever!

I also would like to say, i think i'll have a special meet the friends post on mondays and fridays? is that ok with you guys? Doing it in a regular entry makes it a lot longer than people want to read!

So, we'll have a 'mystery guest' monday, and a 'honorary guest' friday. or something like that. :)
