Sweep for my sweet!

Bloggie friends!

I hope you had a great London Marathon yesterday!

It was a work day for me but I had the privilege of sharing the train commute with excitable spectators and participants!

In the meantime, Charlie did some gardening.

He says: I sweep the patio with my tail.


To all our bloggie friends in America – we hope you are safe and ok after all that mad weather!

Peace and love as always!

Charlie, great job sweeping pal! Hey, the nasty weather passed us by, but it came a bit close to where sweet Faith moved to her forever home, but they are all okay too! Have a great week!!!

mshatch said...

we did have mad weather here last night, wild and windy; it blew one of my chairs right off my porch!

looks like Charlie does a good job of helping out :)

Niki said...

Can Charlie come and sweep my patio???

Manzanita said...

I can imagine the excitement on the train. Charlie home, sweeping away. ha

Now if you can persuade Charlie to dust indoors...we've had no luck whatsoever with Maui, our resident static-boy.

Oh dear...Poor Charlie! I hope he got a good brushing. :)

Lynda R Young said...

oh my goodness it's a tail! I wondered what the photo was for ages before I started reading lol.

Madeleine said...

Wow is that Charlie's tail? I was busy all weekend and now shattered. I join you in well wishes to everyone who has suffered with the awful weather problems over the past few months. :O)

Ellie said...

Oh, my. He really did sweep up!

Mr Puddy said...

Is that you, Charlie ?
Hard to tell !

Kea said...

Just the word "marathon" makes me want to veg on the couch, with chocolate. Ha!

Charlie, I need your help in my little garden--could I borrow you for a few weeks?

I emailed Cheri at Cats of the Wildcat Woods, because they're in NC, but haven't heard back. I don't know if they're in an area that was impacted by the tornadoes. It might be that they have no power...I'm just hoping they're safe.

Oh Charlie your tail looks like mine does when I have been helping mum sweep up!! - Hannah xx xx
It was great to have a lovely day for the marathon both for the competitors and the spectators.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

The Monkeys said...

Charlie, your tail makes a great broom! We're glad you were able to help out your Mum with the gardening!

Happy Monday, sweet friends. xxxxxxxx

Hi Jennifer,
Too bad you couldn't participate in the marathon. Have you participated before? I think marathons are fun. I participated in a yoga-thon ;) It was fun!

Tracy said...

Oh Poor Charlie, what on Earth does he have in his tail...poor baby!

I thank you for the kind words on us getting through the storms. As I figured, we do not have school here today because of the mess so hopefully they'll get things cleaned up enough so we can head back to school tomorrow.
Have a wonderful day!

Her highness, Samantha VĂ©rant said...

Say that isn't Charlie!

Hart Johnson said...

Oh, Charlie-hasn't anyone told you what a bad idea housekeeping is?! teehee...

Tara said...

Could I borrow Charlie to sweep my deck? :)

Lydia K said...

Terrible how powerful the weather can be. I hope all our friends are okay too.

Rene said...

Whoa, Charlie, that's some sweeping you did. Care to come sweep our porch? ;-)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Old Kitty your comments always make me smile and today's made me laugh! I know it doesn't seem like a pretty place but the scenery along the coast made up for it ten fold.

notesfromnadir said...

I hope the Marathoners had a great time, too! Wow, I always marvel at the fact that people actually LIKE to run for 26 miles at a time!

Charlie, glad you're helping out! :)

Clarissa Draper said...

I'm glad you're feeling better and that the weather is better. I miss the blog community.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Look, Kitty--I made it! Sorry I haven't been by in a while. I hope Charlie hasn't missed me too much. He he. :-)

Is that picture really Charlie's tail??!!

Theresa Milstein said...

I prefer pictures of Charlie, though both are identically puffy.

London Marathon yesterday? We copy EVERYTHING about England in Massachusetts while at the same time we bring up every battle we had in the American Revolution. Today is the Boston Marathon in honor of Patriot's Day, commemorating the battles of Concord and Lexington.

If only we'd kept those British accents.

Marg said...

I bet that was fun hearing all about the marathon.
Charlie, your tail does make a great broom. Looks like you did a lot of sweeping. Did you leave all the dirt in the house?? Good boy. Take care.

Rahma Krambo said...

My cat is good at cleaning out the dust bunnies for me.

Say 'Hi' to Charlie.

Katie Mills said...

ha! cat tails are useful for so many things...

Summer Ross said...

Doesn't Charlie know he's not supposed to work so hard - LOL

The Golden Eagle said...

It must have been something to be in the same train with spectators and people participating in the marathon. LOL.

It does look like Charlie went gardening!

Pk Hrezo said...

Well who had weather??? I guess that was the northeast. Been fine and dandy down here in Florida...., :)

Words A Day said...

Tails are so handy! Maybe all patios should come with cats...or all cats should come with patios attached?

the writing pad said...

If Charlie's not too busy, I have an entire farmyard that could do with the tail treatment :-)
Sorry to hear you had to work on Sunday ... Me too, else I'd have been running in the LM - honest, I would ... Well done, though, to all who did.
Have a great week !

Ginger Jasper said...

We also hope that they are safe from the weather. Charlie you are doing a great job there. Hugs GJ xx

Rahma Krambo said...

Wow. I left you a note this morning, but it disappeared.

Wanted to let you know my cat doesn't do gardening, but he's very good at clearing out the dust bunnies.

Chow.

Hehehe ... then again, I am sure you were paid handsomely with treats for all your hard work!
