Serene Scenery Sunday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats! It's me, Zim, here with Serene Scenery Sunday. Yesterday was a typical March day here in Kansas - windy, cold, and rainy. We all went on a couple rounds of walks in the morning and early afternoon. Mom took a chance on the rain holding off and brought her camera; she took a couple pix of Ammy and me that I thought I'd share.

Here we are on the way out on one of the walks:

That's the Yammer in front, and me behind her. I thought I saw one of my kit-cat pals down there in the back yards.

Here we are at about the same place on the way home:

I was still looking for my friend. I just KNOW there was a kit-cat back there!

(Is it just me, or is Ammy holding her nose funny in that second photo? It's like ... she has her nose out of joint or something. Ha roo roo roo! Had to say that.)

It may not seem in keeping with Serene Scenery Sunday to post those pix, but we had such nice walks, and Mom did a pretty good job with those two. (Dave and Stormy were there, Mom just couldn't get any good photos of them.)

In the afternoon, Mom and I headed out on a really cool adventure. She had read about this park we'd never been to where there are supposed to be all kinds of cool birdies; she thought it would be fun for the two of us to check it out! We had a slight change of plans when Mom discovered there are no paved roads to that park (...or a place to turn around once you discover the lack of paved roads), and the dirt roads were really muddy! I thought it would be fun to get out and walk the rest of the way to the park through the mud, but oddly that was a no-go. Instead, we drove out to Anneberg Park. (You may remember us going there before - that's where my goose friends live!)

My goose friends weren't there - they must have been inside having a nice hot cappuccino or something. It was so windy there were white caps on the Amber Ocean! Check out this cool collage:


Can you see how windy it was? If you can't see the white caps, check out my fur in that shot in the middle! The water was making cool sounds on the rocks; I listened to it, but couldn't figure out what it was saying!

Mom and I had a great time. We don't let the weather stop us from having fun and finding serenity. Check out this zen-like moment:

Ah, sweet serenity!

We'll get to that other park one day. Apparently mud and a
white sports car don't mix. Or don't mix well. Ha roo roo roo!

Have a serene Sunday, everyone, wherever your adventures take you!

Play bows,


  1. Harooos to woo Zimmy! So glad woo and the girl had a good day. It was furry serene to me. I have a kitty kat friend now too. But don't tell every furrie just yet. It might ruin my reputation as a Sibe!!

  2. Looks like a fun time to me! We are getting too much rain and fog today.

    Maybe we'll get out for a long walk tomorrow!


  3. Oh! I am hating all this rain and cold after having several days of sunshine. It has rained so hard here I think Mom's crocus have croaked! I'm glad you guys were able to get out and enjoy some dry time with your wonderful Mom!

  4. Now I know what Kansas is like in March - seems that you've got it better than the south of France!Those blue eyes are something else.

  5. Hi Zim
    We are glad to see that the weather doesn't stop you guys from going out looking for serenity!
    We did think Ammy's nose looked a bit sort of squint!
    Was she chewing gum?
    We loved the collage and could see it was windy - we reckoned we could hear that water too!
    We are sorry you didn't see your kitty cat friend - Martha keeps getting hit on the nose by her kitty cat friend.
    I reckon these kitty cats are best left well alone.
    love and kisses

  6. I'm glad you had a cool adventure Zimmie!. Ammy you look very pretty in your second photo :)


  7. We noticed Ammy's crooked nose right away and we are feeling very serene looking at your collage!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  8. Sounds like you had the best day. I can see the wind in your fur and the collage is brilliant. Love that serene picture .. Hugs GJ xx

  9. Thank you for your encouragement to seize the day even if there is mud. I am telling momma to walkie me right now, rain or no rain!


  10. I'm glad you got out even though the weather was not that good. You have yet another ocean? Wow. I must have come onboard after that one was posted. Two oceans in Kansas!! I knew about the Kansas Ocean but that's the first time I heard about the Amber Ocean and I think it's just great! Ammy's nose might be a bit out of whack because she is picking up some weather information. Thanks for sharing the walk and the pictures are great as usual! Your adventures are always so much fun to hear about! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

  11. Glad the rain held off for you guys. Cool collage.
    Benny & Lily

  12. Woooos! I like Ammy's nose, I do that all of the time too! We had rain while Mum was gone , but the sun came out for the weekend!
    At least woo got to go for walkies!

  13. Looks like another fun adventure! Too bad you couldn't get the car muddy or your feets muddy but maybe another time! Beans don't know how fun mud really is.

  14. Sure you had a happy and serene sunday!
    Kisses and hugs

  15. Did Ammy sneeze right after that second picture was taken? Sometimes when I'm about to sneeze, my nose gets disjointed too.


  16. Hey Ao4 gang,
    Did Dave ever see the kit-cat? Does his goose lay Golden Retriever eggs?

  17. Beautiful pictures! Looks like a great, windy adventure! :)

    We always make sure to go on our walks too, but if it's raining too hard, I won't go! If it's raining, I don't like to potty either! I make mom take out the big golf umbrella to keep me dry! BOL!


  18. Looks like another great adventure.

  19. That's so weird - Ammy's nose DOES look strange in that 2nd photo! She must have suddenly picked up an interesting smell!! :-)
