Serene Scenery Sunday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats.  It's me, Zim, here with Serene Scenery Sunday.  I was going to repost the photo I shared with you on Wednesday, but apparently some of you didn't think that looked serene.  Trust me -- it's a great stretch!  Take it slow, build up to it, and give it a try!

Anyway, so let's get to today's look at serenity.  There's always something soothing to look at out on the deck.

I have a great view of the west from this vantage point. I can see the day lilies down in the garden, check the yard for my kit-cat pals, and oooh... here's a pretty sunset from the other night:

Isn't it cool? Or I guess more like hot... but it was really beautiful!

The following night, we went out on the deck, looked just a little to the south of where the sun sets and saw this cool cloud:

Mom thought it looked like Richard Nixon. Whoever it was, he brought us some pea-sized hail. I didn't get to go play in it, though.

Wait a minute... let me check to the north a bit.

"Hey, Maude! Is that you over there?"

It wasn't her. She lives over there, though.

Lemme see... what else?  Oh!  Dave's having a serene weekend, too. Check him out:

I think he's convinced Mom to let him keep the new bed AND his poufy bed!  Isn't that great news?!?!  And it's got him feeling mighty serene!

Have a great Sunday, everyone!

Play bows,
Zim

  1. My vickie thinks the cloud looks like Noah. Isn't he the one that fixed the big boat with all the animals on it.

    Not that she knows him personally. I mean she is old but not that old.

    I just thought I would tell you that I think it looks awfully serene there. I would love to hang out.

  3. Dave - When a nap requires two beds, that is an awesome nap. Just saying.

  7. Great job keeping watch there Zimmie! You never know who is going to invade your yard!

    I think Dave has the right idea! Always good to keep both options!

  11. You have serene views from your deck Zim! We're glad that Nixon only brought pea size hail and not anything bigger! Dave does look serene with his two beds. It was nice of your mom to let him keep both!

  13. I knew he should have both! It's a serene day Zimmie, without that bully cat coming around.

  14. Hey! Momma and Master spotted a wee little puppy that looked just like you yesterday! Master says, "what kind of dog is that?" And momma says, "it is Zim!"
