New Window Whiffs!

Momma has a new Writing Studio that Papa built for her!
And it has a cool new feature — a SKYLIGHT.


Where has this wondrous invention BEEN all my life?


Snifff-f-f-f-f... AHHH, the smell of fresh (chilly) air.


I'd like to order a bazillion more of these, pleez.

And exactly what do you think you're doing with that lens in my face, Mother...?

(almost) Wordless Wednesday



Faraday: *sigh* Mommy made me do it....




Our home team is going to the Super Bowl this Sunday!
GO CHIEFS!

And now, a word from our stinky big sister...


Hello, friends! Mother says she's under a bit of a crunch over the next few months, so we've very reluctantly agreed to allow our blogging to be cut back to twice a week.

(As Faraday would say, Real-life Thingys have such a way of interfering!)

Thanks so much for understanding, and for being there to share in our antics each week.

(And believe me, her Performance Review shall reflect this Time Management Issue, I can assure you.)

Don't do it, dood


Maxwell: *calculating look*



the Mom: Maxie....
 Maxwell: *slow-w-wly stretches paw out*
the Mom: This won't end well, kiddo....


Maxwell: *lifts paw once more*
Yeah, but it's worth it.
It's soooo worth it.

Somemommy forgot....


Faraday: *grumble*

Don't look now, Maxie, but we're so not getting sunpuddles today.

Maxwell: Wait, whut?
Faraday: Come sees for yourselfs.


Maxwell: Yup. You're right, dood. They're down.
 *sighhhh*
When does Momma get home from work again?


Faraday: *heavy sigh* 
I dunno Maxie. 
Do I looks like I does maths and stuffs? 
I didn't think so.


Maxwell: Doooood. It's gonna be a looooong day.


Oops... Sorry, kiddoes!

Trying out a new lens



Confession time:  as much fun as it is to see Allie in a sunpuddle, this new 300mm prime lens is going to be used for something else.


(sorry, girlie...Cut it out with the stink eye, already!)



It's going to be mounted to this motorized polar mount for astrophotography.
 

The good news: it'll be fun. The bad news: it's like relearning how to take photos all over again!
(A professional photographer friend told the mom "welcome to Bizarro World!" when she contacted him to ask for pointers, MOL!)

At least she'll be sitting at the computer (warm laps FTW!) for loads of hours, processing the pictures she takes!

Here's her first attempt: The Orion Nebula. (She has a long way to go, and we don't think Hubble's going to need to worry about being out of a job any time soon, HA!)



Did your humans get anything out of the ordinary for the holidays?

Monday Gruntles™



Maxwell: Allie, dood, did you see the sidelong shade the Brat was throwing Momma this morning?




Allie: Well, first, I'm not a "dood" and second, he was just his usual not-a-morning-person.

Wasn't he?

Maxwell: Oh, no. He was totally giving her some serious side-eye. Take a look.


Here, I'll biggify it for you....


Allie: Oh yes. I stand corrected.

Maxwell: *psst!* Momma left a pile of tissue behind the piano!
Faraday: SCORE!!!!



Happy Monday, and
welcome to 2020!

Miscommunications

*gasp!* What are you doing on the counter?! You're not supposed to be there!


Maxwell: You heard her, Allie. You're not supposed to be up here. Get down.


Allie: *long-suffering sigh* . He did not just say that....



Maxwell: ... I presume by "he" you mean someone other than me....
Allie: *sigh-h-h-h*
