Sitting On The Porch


The other day i had my sister help me upload all 58 pictures on my SD card. I was surprised that I could even take that many!! Of course I had a few more but I had to delete them because they were awful! I had taken a lot of pictures of different things, I had some things on my “blogging to-do” list like the jewelry collection and such. I also haven’t had a post with a lot of pictures of our cats in a while so I figured I’d talk about them.

On my Twitter I’ve been saying how much I love getting on the floor and doing my fuzzy posters, but sometimes even before I go to do that I scoot my little self out of my room and through the living room to the kitchen where my mom allows me to go out on our back porch to sit with our cats. I find they are more friendly and welcoming when I’m at their level. I try to stay leaning up against the door so nobody can stand at the door begging to be let in. Stormy is the only one that has found a way around this. There are like eight posts sticking out on the porch and he can jump up on the one closest to the door and peek his head around and meow. He’s been doing that since he was a baby and he seems to be the only one that has mastered and called that post his! He stays up there even when I’m out there and sadly I haven’t figured out a way to get a good picture of him yet.

The first day I was out it was pretty warm, easily somehow around 70 degrees, but it wasn’t that toasty whether you sat in the shade or in the sun. The cats tend prefer to lay out on the porch in the shade whereas our dog ChiChi loves to lay in the sun. The second day was actually pretty chilly outside, but for us living in the Midwest we’d rather have the temperature in the mid 60s or early 70’s, that’s like the perfect temp for me honestly! It represents fall like weather to me! However, out of all the pants I own and were wearing that afternoon it would be the thinnest fabric ever! I was feeling the breeze all the way up to the thighs! I wasn’t really feeling that too much but it did feel always to be outside with the sleeping beauties! This was also the day I decided to open my window for the first time since like April! I got to scare members of my family during that time too!! It was great to have it open and smell the cool air coming into my room. I sat on my floor and did a couple of fuzzy posters!! So relaxing! The third day though, it was back to like 75 degree weather and I noticed I was sweating while trying to take everybody’s pictures! I’m going to be sad when it gets really cold out and there’s snow and ice all around because I won’t be able to sit out there anymore.

I’ve almost got all of the younger ones used to me now. I still have problems with Toni, Tazy, Otis and Ozzy running away from me wheelchair or not. I’ve managed to get both Gru and Oscar comfortable with me though which is nice!! Once I start scooting over the entrance (it’s like a mini hill for me!) Oscar starts meowing and so far he has the loudest meow of the bunch. We can have a whole conversation with only him knowing what the hell I am saying!! Nelly is the neutral kitty. He’s not really used to me yet but he’ll let me pet him and obviously take his picture! So now we have three cats that love to pose: Nelly, Gru, and Bear Bear. Oh! The last of the three days I went out, my mom got the camping/fold out chairs from my dad’s shed and they are randomly sitting out on the porch. I guess Bear Bear decided to calm one for himself because when I went out I couldn’t find him but then he started stretching and I saw little brown paws sticking out in the corner of my eye and there he appeared! I tried like five minutes trying to take a picture of him but again I’m too damn short! So I had to have my mom to assist me in getting his picture and when he figured out that she had a camera and so he kept changing positions in the chair. When she gave it back to me he got down and started being lovey dovey and he is NEVER like that with me! When he was a kitten, he used to attack my butt because it stuck out of the push wheelchair. Nothing like having a claw going through your pants!

Something that I think I should point out with taking pictures with my camera, it’s a bit difficult to lift up in the air and push the button. I have figured out how to do it, but I’ve noticed I’m REALLY shaky whenever I have it resting on top of my right foot whenever I try to get a picture. So I’ve resulted to leaving on the surface and taking it that way. I think it looks cooler that way! It’s on the same level as their faces and they seem more relaxed than having it right up in their eyes, especially if I forget to turn off the flash! Oops!
