Cleaning, Planting, Cooking, and Playing

Mommy cleaned the porch yesterday (FINALLY). I had to help her of course. Then she bought some flowers and herbs and we potted them in plants. She made such a mess, so she had to clean again! She also planted some flowers in front of the condo as well. I can't wait till they grow tall. Mommy says we have to say "hello" to the flowers, and "do nice". I think she's crazy but I do what she says, just to shut her up.

I don't know the name of any of the flowers (because mommy threw out the cards that come with the flowers), just that they are perennials - bloom most of the year, so we have one hanging and two in pots. The other pots look empty but mommy planted oregano and basil seeds. She dumped the whole packet in the pot. I told her not too because it's only a small pot, but did she listen. I can't wait post pictures whent the pots crack and mommy has to replant the oregano and basil plants.

Mommy and me also cooked. We made more of my food. Here's a pic of one frozen bag and one refrigerated bag. Mommy takes three out of the freezer at a time. She says its easier and faster to heat up when its not frozen, okay - I'll give my mommy credit this one time, that is a smart idea- but I still can't wait for the pots to crack.

The best part was this morning, we got to play with my hedgehog balls. Mommy bought me two more, SO NOW I HAVE FOUR!!!!!! They pick out the colors - I don't like yellow or green. Still, aren't they cool, well we had so much fun.

Mommy throws one at a time across the room and I run to get each one. Then we do that over and over and over and over again. Then I get an icecube to chomp on while I cool down. Playing with four is so much better than playing with only two.

One of the hedgehog balls boucned off the wall and almost hit daddy's "Godfather" picture. I looked up to make sure everything was okay.



Okay, now I need to take a break

It's time to sit on the A/C vent and cool down. It wasn't that hot today, but it came on because it was preprogrammed. Mommy didn't want to shut it off now that I was relaxing on it, but she did shut it off after I cooled down.

OH, By the way,
Fig - look how much room we have if I sit on one side and you could sit on the other.

I either sit on this vent or the one in the kitchen. When I sit on this vent I can also guard the porch for ants and other bugs. OH and now I can look at a clean porch!

Oh Balboa, you are SOOOOOOO CUTE playing with you hedgehog balls! And FOUR of them?! You lucky dog. And that vent is just perfect for the two of us - I need to come visit you!

Hi, Balboa.
Just by reading your blog I got tired. You did a lot of things! Sure it was an interesting day for you.
I hope your mom's plants wll be ok?
Show pictures to see them grown.

Hopefully your mom's pots don't crack. My mom grows nothing because she kills everything. Those hedgehog balls look really nice. Oh and your vents are on the floor? So unfair ours are on the ceiling.

I hope all the plants grow well. I'm not very good with plants, I tend to pull them out of the soil and shake them in my teeth, oops!

that sounds like quite an exciting day. mom tried to plant some stuff once but then we just dug it all up and then she was mad. I cant wait to see your pots crack, do you think she will be mad when you say "I told you so"??

i am going to have to beg for some hedgehog balls. I have a hedgehog football, but it's really big and hard and loud! Are your hedgeballs soft? You look like you are having fun.

Hey Balboa...
What a busy weekend you've been having!!! I like those hedgehog balls too. Where did your Mom buy them? They look like fun!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Balboa said...

Mommy bought the hedgehog balls online from JB Wholesale Pet Supplies. They are a little loud but very bouncy. They too big for my mouth, but I can carry a ball around by biting onto a few of the bumps. Mommy said if I am good she'll buy me some more, then maybe I;ll have six instead of four! Imagine how cool that would be.

Pearly said...

Those balls looks big! I too got a new plant and grandma brought home a free pokie plant, nasty! Oh yea.. click my name!

Scruffy said...

Your Mum's very good at planting. My Mum says she doesn't have a green thumb. Silly Mum! Her thumb is skin colored. Anyway, she says even cactus dies on her so she has given up planting.

I need some hedgehog balls! They look like so much fun!

My Mom planted some herbs too...they are huge now. Basil is her favorite. Pesto we come!


Amber-Mae said...

Oh those hedgehog balls do look like a lot of FUN!!! Oh my hooman refrigerates tupperwares & tupperwares of boiled meat with soup. So everyday, it's easy for her to microwave a tupperware a day of meat & soup for us three. Now, that's what I call, FAST FOOD! Yummy!

Love licks,

Sharon said...

That looks like an awesome fun sport. We need to get some hedgehogs for Snickers.

Tadpole said...

Duke & Gidget said...

You are quite the botanist Balboa!

I haven't seen any hedgehog toys here yet...but mom says she's going to have a look at the pet store this weekend. Mom did some yard work last weekend and planted some plants with the help of friends because mom does NOT have a green thumb...I wonder if they'll survive?

BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)
