Finally Friday

We're so glad it's Friday!  We've had a busy week preparing tax returns and watching it rain...
But the sun came back out yesterday for the first time since our new landscaping was done which reminded us that we never showed photos.  We'll blame that on Mommy of course but anyway, let's start with the before view from the deck...
Behind the evergreen trees was a pathway that was pretty much only used by the neighbor cat Dooney since it was made of lava rock which Mommy hated...
After 11 days of working with just one day off, the landscapers transformed the previously unusable space to a new very usable space...
Mommy still has to stain the replaced board in the deck and figure out what she wants to plant in all the new space but she's very happy with the quartz stone pathway which leads to a patio in the back...
She also loves the view from the patio of the snow covered Three Sisters which you can kinda see in this photo through the hazy sky...
There's a view the other direction too - of the new indoor only neighbor kitties watching Mommy!
Those kitties made her smile!  We have noticed that since the landscape change, the outdoor neighbor cats don't visit as often which is an added bonus!  Especially since Daddy will be putting up the bird feeder again this weekend - yay!

Mommy and Daddy took the day off today so we're going to enjoy a long, sunpuddle filled weekend!

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
Angel

So many "Wows!" - that is some gorgeous piece of property and the new neighbor kitties are adorable and isn't it nice that they stay safe indoors. The first photo of you is adorbs. And isn't it nice that Mommy and Daddy get a day off together - things are really going well at your house.

Your yard looks meowvolous! We can't wait to see it after your mom does some planting. Do you think you will get vegetables or flowers? So funny to see your new kitty neighbors watching you. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
