Happy caturday, Farmer Tabby! It’s time for the spring planting. :)

Rise and shine, morning glory. I hope you slept well.

How are you this morning? I haven’t been up long (yes, the Tabster allowed me to sleep in). I’m just relaxing on the couch with a cup of joe and watching some nonsense on Bravo (what is up with the dudes on Online Dating Rituals of the American Male!? I can’t tell if some of them are faking for the cameras or if they really are that terrible.).

What I really want to do this weekend is start working on my deck garden. Every spring we plant cat-friendly echinacea, zinnia, catnip and some other things Tabs really likes on the back deck, and since he’s primarily an indoor kitty (with frequent outdoor leash walks, of course), it becomes his respite from the great indoors.

Last year the garden became infested with whiteflies, and they basically destroyed everything. I didn’t want to use real-deal pesticides to get rid of them, so I tried some natural things, including earthworm castings and lemon/vinegar sprays, which I’d read about online, but nothing worked (I didn’t try ladybugs, however, which I’d read might do the trick).

Since then I cleaned everything out — every pot, planter and even the wooden deck surface — so hopefully with some brand new soil this year, the flies don’t get a foothold.

Oh! I almost forgot. Last night after Thai food I watched Burlesque on Bravo with Cher and xtina.

Not a great movie at all, but so. much. fun. :)

Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway. Talk to you soon.

Hello there, sleepy head. Someone slept in this morning. :)

Did you sleep well? Have any good dreams? Did you dream of rainbows and unicorns, or pegasus perhaps?

I don’t remember if I had any dreams… I conked out when I went to bed (at like 9:30) last night.

You know how I drove into the city yesterday, right? It was for a couple of beauty events that I’ll tell you about soon (I just have to prep the pictures and videos first), but I was there for a total of about 12 hours, and it was like when you spend the day traveling. Miles of walking, not really having a home base to return to or a place to kick your sore feet up and wash your face. Plus, the huge crowds and always being a little hungry and dehydrated.

It was fun, and I love San Francisco…but I also love coming home.

I’m not sure what I’m doing yet today. I’m still trying to figure that out. I’d like to prep those MAC posts I mentioned, but I’d also like to just sit on the couch, LOL!

Sorry. Your girl’s still a little tired.

I hope you have a nice weekend lined up. Because I was negligent in my pet assisting duties yesterday, Tabs is insisting that I take him for an extra long walk. Be back soon. Good luck in this weekend’s giveaway. :)

Giiirl, what are you doing up so early!?

Wait — it’s 8:30 already? Are you kidding me? How’d that happen?

Huh, I must have slept in, which can only mean one thing…

It’s time for COFFEE! :)

Aw, yeah. I’m just foolin’ around. I’ve actually already had my first cup. Tabs and I have been waiting for you. We’re here watching Bravo (Blood, Sweat & Heels) on the couch.

I want you to listen to me for a minute now, and it’s very important.

Are you listening?

OK, here goes: you are going to have one of the greatest days ever in the history of the world.

The history departments at Ivy League universities are going to start teaching students about today and just how awesome it really was.

I’m serious! — today is going to be epic for you. I know it for a fact (Tabs told me).

The best way to proceed is for you to enter this weekend’s giveaway. That’ll give the awesomeness of the day a good start…

I’m gonna go for a run on the treadmill now. Be back soon. :)

Rise and shine, pal o’ mine. :) Happy Caturday.

How did you sleep? Did you have any good dreams? I’m not sure if I did… Can’t remember.

I did, however, have a nice night. El Hub and I went to dinner at the Pasta Pomodoro down the street (I had a glass of moscato, which I’ve totally been into lately), and then came home.

Action packed? No, not really. But it was nice.

Today I have some household things to take care of, like grocery shopping and cleaning up the deck. We are literally down to the bare minimum in the fridge. You know how when you open the fridge and wonder, “Hmm… What can I make with half an onion, three slices of bread and some barbecue sauce?”

LOL! OK, it’s not that bad yet, but almost.

What do you have going on today? Please tell me you’re doing something fun. I have chores to do, so I need to live vicariously through you.

I slept in this morning, so I haven’t even had my first cup of coffee. I’m about to, and I’m beyond ecstatic about it. While I go make my favorite drink, why don’t you enter this weekend’s giveaway? I’ll be right back. :)

I just want you to know that my hands are numb right now… That’s how cold it is in my house this morning.

Buuuut, I’m also a California weather wuss, so there’s that. The thermostat, which isn’t working because our gas is offline, says 63 degrees.

And I’m freezing. :)

See!? I’m a wuss. I don’t even pretend not to be.

Rise and shine, morning glory! Happy caturday! I hope you had good sleeps. I slept pretty well, actually. I’m all bundled up in layers now to keep warm, and I’m trying to figure out what to make for breakfast.

About Last Night…which is the name of the movie El Hub and I saw last night, LOL! We thought it was great. Pretty raunchy at times (it’s Rated R), but it was one of the better rom-coms I’ve seen in a while. All of the characters are well written, and I cracked up laughing a few times. That Kevin Hart guy is a hoot.

Nothing on my agenda for today other than tracking down a better space heater. The one we picked up from Target last night just ain’t gettin’ it done.

While I go put on another sweater and get a cup of coffee, why don’t you enter this weekend’s giveaway? Talk to you soon. Hopefully. If I don’t freeze first, LOL!
