2009 Year in Review

So, 2009 was pretty much a bust for me and Zoe and this blog. We posted, what, 11 times? That’s not even once a month! Jeesh!

2009 was okay. I mean, all the years are pretty much the same to me. We have the cold times, then the wet times, then the hot times, then the cool times and back to the cold times. But here’s a rundown of the “Year That Was” for me and Zoe.

It was really wet this year. Spring kept lingering and the hot times never really came. We had so few days like these:

Or these:

But I still had fun. We didn’t go in the car very often but when we did we saw some nifty places, like this:

Of course, the best thing about new places is lounging and watching the world go by, am I right?

Because of all the rain, none of Mom’s gardens did very well. I mean, I like the bare dirt look, myself. If she would let me, I’d lay right down in those bare gardens. They’re nice and cool. But she doesn’t like it when only half of the garden sprouts, like this:

The only time I can remember that I hated this past year was when Mommy went away for a few days with her Mommy and visited someplace called ‘Beantown.’ Why couldn’t I have gone? I like beans! And all they did was walk around – I like walking around! And they look at all sorts of dead people. I like looking at…well, I don’t like doing that, but I do like to walk and eat beans.

Because of all the rain during Spring and Summer, we did have a really nice fall. At least that’s what Mommy tells me – I still can’t see many colors no matter how hard I try, but I do look good in those leaves, don’t I? Take a look:

Fall had a lot more nice days than Summer did.

But even though Fall is such a nice time of year, it comes with dangers. It’s good for me, then, that one of my human cousins made me my own special spiffy jacket that protects me from those things that go BOOM! during the fall. Here’s me, modeling. Aren’t I an eye-catcher?

And, of course, the worst thing about Fall is always the evil gourds…**shudder** I hates me those evil gourds.

But they finally rotted away and the cold times came again. We’ve had a LOT of snow this cold time, but at least it looks good with my fur.

So, that’s how our 2009 went. Zoe, do you want to say something?

Yeah, well, if you didn’t run around like a demon hellcat from hell maybe Mom could take more pictures of you.

Hellcat, that’s what she is.

So – Happy New Year, everyone!
