.

First off we'd like to send out big purrs to our friends Daisy and Jonesie as they are feeling under the weather. Get better soon furiends!

We have had a busy week out here in the woods, with our snow almost all gone. With that also goes the calmness of a Winter's day when everything is wrapped in white. Now the anxiety of Summer Plans begins. This was a week of lists, lists and more lists.

I was very happy though that the PM decided to take me around the property for a Spring Inventory.

I had my first roll of 2010 and it was SPLENDID!!!!!





We were surprised to see how many trees have been damaged this year. We will have a busy Spring, pruning and cutting things down.




Goldie came out for about five minutes. He was nervous and sat on the PM's rainboot. He likes it better when the PM has a chair outside and he sits on her lap. She told him she has something in the works for him and the rest of us felines.


He seemed real happy about that.

The First Roll of 2010! Something to celebrate, Shade!

Plans...? Sounds VERY interesting? Do you know something we don't, Goldie?

Hansel said...

hurrah to being outside! mom says she can't wait til she has a yard because she's going to try to build us some kind of enclosure because she knows we'd never stay put.

Daisy said...

It sounds like some exciting plans are in store!

Thank you for your kind thoughts. My eyeball is already getting better! We're just waiting on the test results now.

Hannah and Lucy said...

A roll is never the same until you do it in the great outdoors - Mum's really appreciate all the interesting things that come in and drop all over the floor and furniture from your furs.

It sound as though you're going to have something happening outside soon - good luck snoopervising.

Cory said...

Ohh!! We can hardly wait to hear what the big plans are!

Bennette is loving your Tuxie rolling Shade. She thinks it would be a good idea to get together for tag team rolling!

The Paw Relations said...

We love to roll about in the grass too!

Eric and Flynn said...

It must be lovely for you to see the grass again after all the snow, and have a good outdoors roll. We wonder if the plans are for an enclosure for lying out on sunny days.

CCL Wendy said...

For a kitty who doesn't mind doing his duty in the snow, Goldie certainly is being particular about the grass! Shade, on the other paw, is certainly enjoying the outdoors. There's something very special about the scent of early spring!

Kea said...

We can well imagine that first roll was fantastic!

These plans sound intriguing--we're thinking outdoor enclosure too, which would be fabulous!

Jacqueline said...

You look so happy rolling in the grass, Shade and Goldie has such a sweet face!...Too bad about the trees, that is a lot of work...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

Now THAT'S a Spring Roll (mom always gets spring rolls from the Chinese food place) What the heck happened to that split tree? Lightning?

Gandalf, Grayson, Whitey and Gracie said...

Oh noes! The poor broked trees! We are glad you got out for a roll and inventorying! Spring is much funner than winter.

Cat with a Garden said...

We certainly had a tough Winter too. You can be proud that the PM took YOU with her, Shade. Maybe, after all, you're the most trustworthy around. We are almost certain the "plans" involve a safe and cool run for you three. It could turn out really great because you've got enough space to build something decent.
Purrs, Siena & Chilli

Junior and Orion said...

I LOVE TO ROLL!!!!!!!!~~Junior

We bet you are getting a nice enclosure...maybe attached to a porch!

The Island Cats said...

Lucky you guys getting to go out! Enjoy that roll, Shade!

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Laila and Minchie said...

Rollin' in the grass looks like so much fun! And we are anxious to hear what the big plans are.

MoMo said...

Does seem like a lot of work for you. We only have a little garden and that takes up a lot of time in spring.

Busby and Raymond said...

Shade, that roll was very good, looks like you have been practicing all winter long!

Grrreta said...

That roll looks like it felt GREAT! Oooh, we wonder what the PM has in the works for you kitties.

Ayla and Iza, said...

I specially like rollin in the dry leafs and on the patio. That way I can bring lotsa grit into the house on my furs and TBT hasta brush them all off on the floor. MOL!

We cant wait ta see what the surprise is. We bet ya get a bench!

Derby, Ducky said...

Gosh you are so far behind us in terms of green grass. Mum finished her damage pruning weeks ago, the grass is green here.

Maybe you will get an outside run.

Lucy the Cat said...

Thank you for comforting note about Bucky. I really appreciate it. It's a sad time, but the support from blogging friends has been so helpful and sweet.

I love Shade's roll in the spring grass. That's happiness. Goldie sitting on the PM's boot is so cute, and yes, he does look happy.
