Miss Peach is holding an auction to help with Shadows vet bills. These are the cute Salt and Pepper shakers .
Thank you Miss Peach!
Kirby: WE rested, but Mom and Dad did not. Mom's quilt/craft room is not covered by the house air condition/heater. It has a 'window' unit shoved in a hole in the wall. Well, It quit working last winter. That was not a problem, cause we have fairly mild winters. But when it started getting over 100 every day, Mom said something needed to be done.
Angel: Friday night our bean sister came over to help Dad install a new unit. It is not that Mom is not capable of helping, it is just that she is short and the unit was over her head.
Kirby: After they got that done, Mom started clearing up the stuff. Since she has not been able to work in there, she has a filing system called "pile it" . And believe us, it was piled. So after errands on Saturday, she and Dad started in cleaning. She did not just put stuff up, she threw stuff away and dusted and swept. She went through cabinets and boxes and cleared all the surfaces! It is a whole new room!
Angel: This morning, they continued working. Dad had some work to do on the outside of the new cold air box, making it where the aid did not sneak our or bugs could not sneak in. Then he did some work on the front of the house, before the temperature got above 100.
Kirby: This is where the adventure came in. Last year Mom bought a screen box that has shelves in it. It is so city kitties can go outside and be safe.
It is not very big, but I can stand up under the shelf or on top of the shelf. Mom shoved me inside and she and Dad set it on the front porch.
I could smell the grass, trees, birds, paint ( Dad was painting the porch support post) and all sorts of things. There was this big Blur Jay that was teasing me. he would look over the edge of the roof on my left and say 'peek-a-boo' then he would disappear only to show up on the right side and say it again. It was lots of fun. I got to stay outside for ages.
Mom: Kirby, it was only half an hour!
Angel: I did not want any part of that adventure. I stayed inside where it was cool!
Mom: Dad is talking about getting a large metal dog kennel for the yard so Kirby can put his paws out ans get closer nature! The net cage has tabs on either end . You are suppose to run a rope through the holes on the tabs and stake it down so active kitties won't turn it over. When I took his new 'toy' down the hall for storage, he followed me and talked to e. I think he was afraid it was going away..
