As a group we at Mischief and Mayhem Central have decide to start a series called Alphabet Soup. What can be more comforting than a hot bowl of soup on a cold, winters day! Soup is definitely Grammys go to. Ours is ANY place that we can snuggle in and be warm. Of course, that is AFTER we have had our breakfast. AND soup isn't on our menu. No siree!
Now a quick reference to and update on last week's blog...Feeling Antsy? ANTS are not Grammy's favourite critter but the good news is... they may be on the decline. After blogging last week Grammy put down borax and powdered sugar in a small area of the countertop where they kept appearing and blocked it with the paper-towel dispenser and Brita water jug to keep us away from the 'poison'. All it takes is for the ants to walk through the toxic combo to track it into and kill off the nest.
Grammy has noted all week that the number of ants appearing daily is diminishing and the ants that do appear are looking rather peaked (pronounced Peek-Ed), unwell. Yes, you heard me. They look paler, less robust, confused and unfocused. Let's hope this is the beginning of the end of the ANTS.
Now, on to other topics of the "A" persuasion. Next on our list is ANTICIPATION. Yesterday we got just a whiff of Spring... but it was enough for Grammy to open windows last evening to let in some fresh and push out the stale, used-up AIR. Today may be gloomy but that little bit of freshness has given us hope that, like the ants in decline, winter is on the downward slope of the season.
We feline furballs love spring. We also love summer and AUTUMN when the windows can be opened and we hear birds singing in the trees and bees buzzing the flowers. We anticipate this will inspire Rondo to write some more poetry but no promises. He says he must await the muses. Now on to more A words...
ANXIOUS... AUNTY E has just arrived. Who is Aunty E? She's our cleaning lady. Don't get me wrong. We are not anxious that she's going to clean. We love a clean condo... and Aunty E is a lovely, kind lady who absolutely adores us ... but when she is here things get moved around and everything is dusted, washed, scrubbed and ends up spotless and sparkling. If we didn't hide from her we would be given the same treatment. *giggles* The results are wonderful but the issue is... to get there she brings out the Gobble Monster and we are terrified of that fearsome beast and hide until it is put back in its cage.
ADHESIVE or ADVERSARIAL - When Aunt E is here we are either of those two words. We either cling to Grammy like velcro or we attack the girls. We know that it is wrong to attack Sweetie et al but we do it anyway. Grammy says it is an issue of being overly stimulated. Then we get ADMONISHED and are ANGUISHED that she might be upset with us at which time we cuddle up and become Velcro cats.
So, on that note... ADIEU! It is time to go and cuddle up with Grammy until this upheaval and commotion is over.
Comments are welcomed. Hopefully they'll be light, funny and/or even silly.
We LOVE you.
