Come inside, I am happy that you could made coffee on this weekend. Select your drink from among coffee, tea or lemonade. There is also a selection of pastries. It is going to reach the eighties today. There may a thunderstorm later. The last week as been warm and cool again. The Boise River is still at flood stage and will remain the same for the next month as snow melts in the higher elevations.


We are now last our last first date so I have started moving my plants outside on the patio. This geranium has been blooming all winter. It is in a testing stage right now. It is first to one the patio. Others are a large spider plant that after three years still doesn’t have offshoots. I guess I am given it to good of care.

Our shopping was minor this week and was done fast. Bob had his yearly checkup from Blue Cross. My own medical care is mess up and I am not sure my next move.

We have no plans for the weekend. Our local news ran an article informing us the 100 deadly days start this weekend. Every one stay safe.

Kato’s continues to surprise me about the words he knows. He is deathly afraid of elevators. He screams whenever we try to take him on one. He associate them with the time we spent in a hotel when our motor home has broken down. A really negative week for all of us. He loves to ride on a walker. Lately, when Bob and he return from their walk, he has been riding Bob’s walker. Kato was eating his food and I asked Bob if he had bringing up with on the elevator. The word was just out of my mouth when he stopped eating and headed toward a safety spot. However, as he realized he was going on one, he return to finished eating. Elevator is not a word I would have thought a cat would know.

    I am laughing out loud about the word recognition..of COURSE Kato knows the word elevator!!! Fully jealous of a prolonged “flood stage”, and even a river. The geraniums are happy about the weather for sure. Thanks for coffee, Betty Louise.

  2. Colline says:

    Your geraniums look beautiful.

  3. Hi Betty! What gorgeous pictures – as usual! Loved the pic of your cat! I always love reading your weekend coffee share and looking at your photos. Hope you are well! Aren’t you glad it is finally getting warm?

  4. trentpmcd says:

    It’s amazing the words that cats and dogs pickup. Since Kato has such a bad feeling about elevators, I’m not surprised it’s one he knows.

  5. We are lucky we don’t have to take in our pot plants for winter. Hope the geraniums manage outside. I would find it a little depressing to have looked after them inside all winter only to have them suffer when put outside for summer. Yes cats (and dogs) understand much more than we give them credit for. Clever Kato. Lovely photos. Have a good week.

    Thaks for sharing. That’s funny about Kato.

  8. Corina says:

    I wish I could keep plants alive. I always have bad luck, even when I follow instructions to the letter.

  9. Kathleen Howell says:

    That is funny that he knows the word elevator.. Years ago my cats learned the word “treats” when I would give them some.. They’d perk up just hearing it.. LOL Hope you have a better week!

    • Animal can learn a lot. Our dogs knew around 20 words and I never count Kato knew. He knew the scent of those who live here and a number of cars. A new person he lets us.

    Again, reading this long after your post. In the middle of June we are finally risking putting out plants in pots on our deck in northern NM. They have to be on the deck because of the deer. If you look at charts, our last chance of frost of the spring/summer overlaps with the first frost of fall/winter. Short growing season!

    • Yes, this unusually weird weather. The Noise River has really overflow it banks. I remember this happening every spring growing up. Imagine what it would be like if there wasn’t 3 dams on river rainabe. I hope the Snake River aquifer was redolent but that is a different river drainage. It drains the snow pack from the Yellow stone area. The aquifer comes out at Thousands Springs located in the middle of the state.

    • We lived in Central Oregon for a
      Period and it could snow any day of year. Another short growing period. The area also lack sulfur in the soil. You need to added it in order to grow.
