Thursday Wrap-Up.

So to stop the screaming before it started, I told Caroline she could have the last picture of the week. It was just easier, even though she's been no help at all in nursing my hacky, sneezy mom. Mom caught a cold this week, and between Caroline and the two teeny boys, it's just up to me and Elliott to take care of her. I expect we'll get lots of treats for that once she's better.

Have a fun weekend, everyone!

What do you mean, it's Caroline's Day? I'm hijacking it!

Early Trick Or Treat.

Look at me, I'm Elliott the Halloween Cat with orange ears!

I'd rather have a treat than a trick, though.

Columbus Day Weekend.

We had a fun weekend, even though we did not see these at all at any point during the Fear-esta.

I X'ed these out of the photo we took from the balcony the last time we saw them so you'd know what we didn't see. Obviously this year they must have been flying clear away from the Caroline Zone.

Izzy made a new friend who looked leafy, like this.

His katydid was on the balcony door screen. Naturally my mom had to talk to it in her Universal Cat Voice, which intensified Izzy's fascination. Mom said he couldn't go out to play with her, and of course Katydid couldn't come in either. It started to rain and Katydid left. So much for that friendship.

Mom and Aunt M went on the very cool singing road.

It played "America the Beautiful" and was just opened at the beginning of October. The singing road was paid for by National Geographic and is a permanent addition to Route 66 (you can read about it and hear it here--just answer one no-hassle question to read the article).

They were on their way to the Oak Flat Picnic Grounds in the Cibola National Forest, which was pretty but very very windy!

They did not think to bring home any picnic food for us, though. All I can say is, it's a good thing there was no KFC involved!

Thursday Wrap-Up.

Well, we've got lots of food, a couch full of fur (see?), entertainment from the turning leaves, and a mom with three new library books. I'd say we're ready for the weekend!

I'll have our full Balloon Fear-esta report on Monday, after it ends this Sunday. Have fun until then, everyone!

Caroline's Day.

This is really not my usual spot, but I decided to see what those stoopy boys found so very interesting up here.

And now I am Queen of the Cat Tree!

Equal Time For Ivan.

So if Izzy can get a day with a tree shot, so can I...

...even if nothing really fun rhymes with my name.

Dizzy Izzy.

Hello down there!

Thursday Wrap-Up.

So the Balloon Fiesta starts this weekend, and you know what that means--we'll be on the lookout unless they get too close and then we'll hide! We've never had any fly close by here like we used to at the house, but you just never know. It's best to be prepared is what I say.

So between napping and playing and then napping some more, we'll be keeping watch. Have a fun weekend, everyone!
