Tuesday Tour: Blog office

We'll friends it looks like we are about to have our 2nd Tuesday Tour.
I must admit I have baffled Mom about something. 
I used to love to sit on the old carpet in my blog office while basking in the sun puddles.

I love sitting on the hardwood floors downstairs in my dining room.
This is just one of the gazillion pics of me sitting on the dining room hardwood.


I really like sitting around on the new carpet too


For some reason unbeknownst to me, Mom or Dad
I will not place my diva self directly on the new floor in my blog office.
I will walk in the office.  I will sit in my tunnel.
Since the new flooring has been installed, I will sit just outside the office on the carpet.
Mom remembered she had a sample of the new carpet so she 
brought it into the blog office.  Now I will sit in there!!
Just not on the Armstrong wood like vinyl flooring.  Mom says it feels just like
hardwood and is not cold. She is clueless as to why I won't sit on it!
I won't even sit on the new flooring when my sun puddle is in there!!
So there you have folks Tour 2 is over nuttin' else in my blog office is new...just the floor.
If anyone has any ideas as to why I won't sit on the floor, you can leave them in the comments.

From atop an itty bitty sample of new carpet in my blog office it is
Madi signing off!!
PS mom says to tell you this new flooring is indestructible and easy peasy to clean it is also in 
Dad's train room.

Madi Moon Fog

The fog comes 
on little cat feet. 

It sits looking 
over harbor and city 
on silent haunches 
and then moves on.

Don't you just love that poem!!  We do!!
For those who have never been in a room as a cat enters...we are very very quiet
UNLESS we (me) are hungry and someone (TOGM) has not prepared our food.
PS crazy mom says the title of the post sounds like an Native American Indian Name
Madi Moon Fog.  MOL
