I went over to visit Sammy and Annie yesterday. They both gravitated to the sliding glass door (screen) on the deck when I opened it...all those scents and sounds. No turkey gobbling, tho?
After I cleaned the catbox and got them more food and fresh water, I sat down with my laptop and caught up a bit online for a while. Let them get used to me being there. Talked to both of them.
By the time I was ready for a stretch break they were ready to play!
Sammy--ready to pounce.
I didn't get a non-blurry close up of Annie, but figured I would later. Went back to the laptop.
BUT...then I got a call from Country Greenery! They were over at my apartment with a flower delivery! That Leah is such a stinker! I had told her that if they were planning on getting me flowers (which Leah has done for years now), that this year I'd really rather have a hanging plant for the porch (since I killed my three with over-fertilizing them). We had talked about it and were going to make a trip to Target this coming week because Leah said she saw the perfect hanging pots for me (since I bring them inside and don't want ones that let the water run thru). So I wasn't expecting a delivery--at all!!
I asked the delivery man to check and see if the office was still open. He called me back and said no. I asked him to just leave the delivery inside the door there at the office and I'd be there in about 15 minutes...and I flew out of Dagan and Leah's. Well, as fast as I could hobble out of there. Can't say as I can fly anymore--hehe!
I parked the car over by the office and went to retrieve my package. WOW! There sat this gorgeous, huge philodendron plant in a hanging basket!! OMGosh!! And there was another tall, small package, too!
I went back to the car, carefully carrying my treasures, to get my laptop and bag and surprised Miss Karma with my grand entrance!
She immediately started burying her head in the plant as if it were some bush and she was trying to see what was under it. She wasn't trying to chew on it or anything--just sticking her head in it?
Too cold yet to hang it outside. (Was supposed to be in the 20's last night!) Hung it up in the living room behind my chair there. It is just beautiful!! Huge! Thanks Dagan and Leah!!! :):)
And what was in the smaller package? A single rose!! So I even got a rose, too. (Love roses.) My goodness! Thanks so much, guys!! :):)
Karma is so funny. Hoping for baby's breath (which she gobbles up) she cried and cried for me to give her the rose. After I got the rose in a vase I set it on the craft table to take a picture--she leapt into the chair nearby...feigning total disinterest...
...and hoping beyond hope that I would forget and leave the rose on the table.
Well, I haven't lost all reason yet. Her act didn't fool me one bit. I set it up by the TV--and she blew her cover--followed and cried and begged for it. I had to move it before I went to bed, too, because she could have still gotten to it during the night in this spot--hehe!
Karma did get to hide under the paper the rose came in, tho. :)
(That's my table easel leaning against the dresser and the Reynolds wrap that props it up the perfect couple of inches just waiting there on the floor for the art table to be cleared off one day--hehe!)
She smelled every inch of that paper, I think. Stayed under there like she was in a fort for a couple of hours. Pleasure all around, eh?
We are having another sunny, cool day today.
Happy Mother's Day!!! :):)
