Sumac Saturday

Sumac Saturday

Things are still busy over here and the heat is driving me around the bend. We are getting rain this weekend so I am hoping for some nice and cool napping possibilities.

I have to say that I am having mixed feelings about the new Mac. It is much bigger than the old one thus my area on the desk has been greatly diminished. One the other hand, anything with an operating system called Snow Leopard can't be all that bad and I am having a hard time staying mad at a face like that!!

We also got some special mail out here in the woods, Housecat Confidential, the super exciting book written by our witty furriend  Fin and her Mom!

We are so anxious to read it and get the real scoop!!

We will have to wait to read it though as the PM is taking it to Prince Edward Island for a small getaway. She is going over all by herself and staying in a hotel all by herself. I think one of us cats need to go with her as I have never seen her go anywhere all by herself, I don't know if she'll be alright. She seems to think she'll be OK. I think she's actually looking forward to some time all by herself.  Very strange. She's going to meet #1 from The Poupounette for a visit while she is there.  #1 is over for the month from France.  I really, really think I should come too. I'd like to personally pass on some purrs for Yuu-Chan, who is still battling an infection.  Get better little fella!!!

You'll enjoy the book, it's great!

We wish the PM a wonderful trip! In all the years our human lived in Halifax, she never went to PEI. In fact, she's been there only once, when she was about 10 years old and still living in Quebec at the time!

Anyway, we're sure she'll have a lovely time and that it will be fabulous to meet #1!

Sometimes humans need a "vacation" so that they can come home and better appreciate you. Don't worry. We're sure she'll have a great time and when she gets back she'll have missed you so much that you'll get extra treats and cuddles!

We hope things cool down for tyou soon. Here in the UK we've had heat warnings issued for the eldery and very young.

Enjoy your book!

We sure hope the PM has a fantastic trip. Sounds like something our Mom should do whenever she gets grumpy.
Fin's book is really good. Can't wait for you Mom to read it to you. It is very funny.
Have a great week end.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We have read Fin's book and it is very good. Hope your PM enjoys her trip to Prince Edward Island - how great to meet #1 from the Poupounette - she'll have plenty to tell you when she gets home.

We luvs our iMac, and it is more than 4 years old. If your Mom has a wireless keyboard, you can sleep between the keyboard and the screen like I do.

That is pretty awesome that your mom is going to meet up with #1 in Prince Edward Island! The Cat Blogosphere is an awesome place. I am worried about Yuu Chan too, so any cat wanting to give purrs for him should do so.

I need to get on Mom to get a copy of Fin's book. We sure do enjoy her blog!

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

It is great book, you'll enjoy it. We particularly like the first chapter.

Your PM is going away all by herself? Hope she has an wonderful time. We all need some time to enjoy our own company.

The Island Cats said...

We have Fin's book now too...mom started reading it to us but then got busy and hasn't finished it yet. Sheesh!!!

We hope the PM enjoys her time away! How nice she gets to meet up with #1!!

Quill and Greyson said...

A vacation from cats? It's just wrong to look forward to that. Well at least she have me along. She'll be wishing she had you for petting as she reads, but whatever.

We hope she loves it and then reads it to all of you.

That is my kind of khat!

Please woof some hello's to #1 from us!


Annie Bear said...

How wonderful for your PM that she gets to go to Prince Edward Island by herself and gets to meet up with a blogging pal. Mama has always wanted to go to Prince Edward Island. I wouldn't like to be left behind either although it happens from time to time.

Katnip Lounge said...

We loved Fin's book! You guys will too.
We cannot believe the PM is going away "all by herself"! Is that even legal? We let Mommy leave but it's to earn stinky goodness money so that's alright.

Tama-Chan, Benny, Vidock, Violette, Ollie, Heloise, Momo, Ryu said...

Hi PM! See you on Monday!


Thanks for the extra purrs for Yuu-Chan. He is still fighting the ugly infection, and appreciates all the moral support.

That is a lovely big monitor. When our mum got her new PC last year it had a widescreen monitor and although the size is supposed to be bigger, it looks smaller than her old square flat screen and she gets annoyed with it.
We hope your mum has a lovely time on PEI.
We have got Fin's book and it is great.

Just Ducky said...

Mum wishes she could get away by herself. Pamper herself, but with us and Grampie lately, not gonna happen any time soon.

Cory said...

How fun...maybe you could pack yourself in her bag so you can meet #1 too...and give her purrs to take back to France!

Becky's Barnyard said...

A getaway. How nice; for the PM anyway. I bet she will bring back a surprise. What do you think?

Mark's Mews (Marley, Lori, Loki, and Binq) said...

We hope the PM has a great time "all by herself". But you deserve a lotta undivided attention when she gets back!

Hansel said...

What a cool looking computer- AND book!!!!!

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

How fun that your mom gets to meet #1!
And we must get that book too.

Chrissie said...

You stay cool, even if you have to sprawl out on the hard floor..sometimes it's cooler than the carpet or furniture! I'm not sure your mom should be allowed to go all by herself..my mom think she needs to go with her!

Mickey's Musings said...

That new computer screen looks pretty neat!!We hope things are running well ;)
Your Mom is leaving??? Going alone??
Meeting another cat's Mom??? sheesh!
How will she be able to be away from you?!! But then, all Moms do that sometime!
We hope she has fun and that you guys get spoiled by the MM! heh,heh,heh

Purrs Mickey,Georgia & Tillie
