Dear friends, I have returned.
How many of you are sick of winter? I know my siblings and I are. Enough already! It isn't that we've had much in the way of snow here. No, but the cold! That is another matter. It's a wonder we haven't lost the tips of our toesies.
Oh, Grammy! I know we haven't been outside but there were times when you opened that balcony door to shovel snow and let in that nasty frigid air. We could very well have been frozen popsi-cats if we hadn't burrowed into warm blankies. Stop interrupting! This is my blog.
My apologies, friends. The old dear is a challenge at the best of times and now she's feeling a little better... well she's a major Twitch in the Whiskers.
We kitties are more than ready to have windows opened to air this place out. During the old crone's bout with the flu we had days that were above zero and we opened windows to send those flu bugs on their way to places frigid where they might freeze to death. Unfortunately, it hasn't been enough.
We never want them back here, EVER. BUT, it seems a few of those critters are malingerers and are slowing Grammy down and keeping our windows sealed. So HURRY UP SPRING!
Friends, I shall now do my part to encourage spring with a few poems. Oh it cannot come too soon. No siree. Here goes. Enjoy!
Birdie birdie in the tree,
Won't you come and visit me?
Bring your twigs to make a nest
Then set upon those eggs and rest.
And when those babies chirp for food
You'll elevate my int'rest and my mood!
Little crocus 'neath the snow so deep
Wake up from your winter sleep
The sun shines down and warms your bed
So ope your eyes and raise your head.
Time you push through, take a peek
For winter's 'most o'er and it's you I seek.
I see the buds upon the tree,
Nubs on branches, they are wee
But as they swell
They'll soon burst free
And shower us with their heav'nly smell.
Friends, I hope this helps. See you again soon......
