No matter which way you look at it...

... *sigh* It still looks like Monday, even upside-down.

Maxie's a fan. No foolin' (well, uh, maybe)

Maxwell: Tomorrow's the big release for book 2 in the Sol Dissolution series, so I thought I'd show my support by posing next to the cover art.

(and trying to eat the eraser off her pencil, but I digress)

I'd give it two thumbs up, except, well...
A. No thumbs, and
2. I, uh, can't read.

(How'm I doing? Can I stop now? I think my chin muscles are cramping....)

Good job, dood.

Two outlets and a Tonk

Faraday: *grumble* Who put this stuffs on the kitchen table, where I was gonna take my Monday nap?

Maxwell: Dood, sweet! Looks like someone's gonna do some electrical wiring!
That's fourteen gauge wire, unless I miss my guess.... And check it out! Two outlets and a GFCI.

Faraday: I'll GFC-YOU if you don't get this stuffs offa my table.
Seriouslies, Maxie, I'm not a Monday kinda kitty. You know these things.

The Mom: Let's talk about the fact you're on the kitchen table to begin with, why don't we?

Faraday: *stink-eye* Suuuuure, Mommy.
Soon's you set down that camera.

I can tell what a huge priority it is for you an' stuffs.

Maxwell: Dood. Burnnnnnn.

Is it Tuesday yet?

A View from a Cup

...a cat cup, that is.

Very punny, Faraday.

Faraday: Hey, Maxie, whatcha doin'?

Maxwell: Measuring the height of my box. Let's looks like it's about twelve hands, give or take a paw....
Faraday: You're measuring in hands?
Maxwell: Well, I heard that's how they do it with horses, so I figured I'd give it a try.

Faraday: Uh, Maxie, you ain't got no hands.
Maxwell: You think you can do it any better? Why don't you come over here and give it a try, then?

Faraday: Nope, you jus' go on ahead wif that. You're the one who does maths and stuffs.
When it comes to measuring stuff, I'm all thumbs.

Maxwell: ...

Nap like...

...the whole world's watching and thinks you're adorbs.

That's not social distancing.

Maxwell: You're in violation of CDC Guidelines, Allie.
They clearly state you're to maintain a distance of six feet from everyone.
I can feel your breath on me. Back away.

Allie: I will as soon as you get off the lounger, Maxie, and give someone else a turn for once.

Monday, from all angles

Maxwell: Whelp, looks like it's Monday again.

Yup. From this position, too....

How's your Monday looking?

Careful what you wish for....

Faraday: Hey, I wanna play, too, Allie.

Allie: really, Brat? 

Careful what you wish for!


Faraday: Ows, Allie! Not fairs! I wasn't ready!

Poor Maxie...


Stoopid toofs.

Yes, he had his dental on Monday and lost 2 teeth.
Marty felt sorry for him and had a crown done the same day.
Then I felt sorry for him and had a filling done yesterday.

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.

Can't Winter go chill somewhere else an' stuffs?

Not So Wordless Wednesday

Allie: *cracks one eye open*

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

A Maxwell PSA

Maxwell: This week ushers in a whole new month.
As we say goodbye to January and hello to February....

Pawty responsibly, 'k?

(almost) Wordless Wednesday

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

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


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.
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.

Happy Weekend!
