Earlier this week, on Wednesday...


Good. Only food goes on the counter.
Remember, you are not a food.

As a matter of fact, yes.

Beginning July 4th, my office is closed through Sunday.
I've decided not to go anywhere, so it's a...

We spent most of the time sleeping, which was great.

The sad part of long holiday weekend is when it ends.
I have to go back to work tomorrow :-(

I don't want to...Goro, Niko, would you go for me?

I miss my kids while I'm away...but they sure give
me energy and reason to get up and go to work.

We wish you a wonderful new week :-)



  1. WE love that picture of Goro asking you why you weren't at work. Too funny. My cats are the best thing that ever happened to me. Hope you have an easy week at work. And Goro, you stay away from that stove.

  2. Goro you were SO busted!
    And Mommy says cats are too a food! She eats our belleh meats All. The. Time.

  3. Hurray for staycations! We're glad your human was home for a week, but are sorry she has to return to work now.

    BTW, we hope it was something very tasty simmering in that crock pot!

  4. Wow! Staycations... iupi!!!!!!!!!

  5. Hooray for staycations! My Mommeh is always a little bit sad to leave us on Monday mornings.

  6. Goro, your mom is lucky to have you to keep an eye on the simmering :) our mom agrees the downside of a va/staycation is the ending. she wishes she could retire all ready, mol! have a nice week ahead! purrs,

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

  7. My human works at home so she never has to miss me! In fact, I jump on the desk and slap and poke her almost daily - I am sure she appreciates my efforts to keep her focused.

  8. Sounds like you had a great staycation cuddling with the boys!!!

  9. Dearest Tamago-san
    Yey, rice is cooking♡♡♡ But Goro please watch out, it really hot there. Yummy soft rice is getting ready☆☆☆
    Wow, staycaution; but it seems you seemed to have had a wonderful long relaxing day off(*^_^*) Yes, I DO hope they can go working for you :)))

    PS> Tamago-san, thank you very much for your thoughtful comment for me. I really appreciate your kindness, my dear Japanese friend♪

    Sending you lots of love and hope you have a wonderful new week as well, xoxo Miyako*

  10. I know you were not going to get on the counter! Five days sure can go by quickly!

  11. Goro, you are always ready to be busy and inquisitive. (In other words you are a wee bit trouble sometimes). I too love your face when you asked mom about going to work and I loved tyour getting ready to leave for work! I loved the sleeping photo. I loved it all. I always do.

    Love you two bunches. xoxoxox Katie Isabella

  12. What a cute post. Love those grey kitties. Audrey says she jumps on the counter all the time when I am out of the house.

  13. Our mom was on staycation all week and now she has to go back to work tomorrow. We're all depressed. :(

  14. Goro And Niko,
    My Mama always have this thing called Monday Blues....but since she owns the company, she sometimes decide to work from home. I love this word....staycation! har har har *evil laughs*

  15. Staycations are my favorite! Especially since it has the word 'cat' in it. ;)
    Wishing you a beautiful week!
    xo C

  16. We know you would NEVER go on the counter, Goro. ;)

    Staycations are the best, because they mean that Mommy and Daddy STAY with us. :)

  17. Dearest Tamago,

    Oh, how curious felines are; they want to know EVERYTHING! And sleeping with their human parents is a hobby. Often when Pieter takes his nap, he's accompanied by one of them. You missed my previous post about three of our felines... By far not as good as your stories but at least I had one.
    Love to all of you.

  18. That's the worst bit...going back to work after a long, happy, lovely Staycation.
    That's so cute how Goro stays on the chair...well almost all of him, instead of getting on the counter.

  19. How helpful they are! I know how you feel I am a special ed teacher and this summer I did not want to work summer school, but then I remembered the extra money can be used to help take care of my babies

  20. That looks like a really nice denki-gama! We wonder what else you were serving with the rice?

    Glad you enjoyed some time together, and be strong about going back to work!

  21. Hey--Why doesn't she take you with her to work? You guys could have a TON of fun in an office or something. Maybe there'd be other people around to give you treats and stuff??

  22. Wouldn't it be nice to be at home efurry day? We love that pic of Goro not being food :-)
