Tuxie Tuesday

Hi everyone! Time to announce the winner of the giveaway for an IKEA mouse.

I am going to let Emmy announce the winner.

By the way, I haven’t seen Grammie since last Wednesday! I love her so very much, I hope she visits me soon.

 

And the winner is Teddy of One Spoiled Cat! Congratulations! Your white mouse will go out in the mail today. Everyone else, don’t worry, we will be doing another mouse giveaway soon.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? Blog Hops today.

Joanie still has a little boo-boo, but she still wanted to write a book review.

How to Be Here is the title- Where the heck else would I be? Why I need a book to tell me that?

Thank you Joanie. I actually like this book because unlike cats, us humans sometimes can be in a place yet our mind is somewhere else. This book is filled with short chapters to guide us on our own path and stop comparing ourselves to others.

I am also reading Ernest Hemingway: A Biography by Mary V. Dearborn. I know he was a cat lover so I thought it would be interesting. I haven’t gotten to his love of cats yet though.

Be sure to comment on Sunday’s post for a chance to win an IKEA mouse.

 

Selfie Sunday and Thanks to Chewy

Hi everyone! Mom had a lot of fun at IKEA yesterday. She bought some curtains with black cats on them. And a weasel for her great-niece, I mean an easel.

Would you believe these were her main reason for wanting to go? They are children’s toys, but she buys them for us. They no longer are listed in the catalog or online so she was thrilled to find them. She bought 9 mice and 2 rats. She said some are for giveaways and I can give one away today. If you want to be entered for a chance to win, tell me in the comment section which color you will choose if you win, they come in white, gray and brown. I will announce the winner on Tuesday.

Remember my lemonade stand that I made with a CHEWY box?(click here)

Joanie was worried that we didn’t have lemonade and I told her it didn’t matter, we would still get stuff for having a lemonade stand. I was right! Look what Chewy sent us because they liked my stand.

Of course, I do all the work and Sammy tried to take the prize. We got 2 packages of treats, lots of catnip toys , including a mouse and a carrot, a wand toy, a burlap bag, a bandana and a magnet for mom’s car. Mom thinks the bag is for her, but I have claimed it as a nice spot to snooze on. Thank you Chewy!!!

I haven’t seen my Grammie since Wednesday, I hope she visits soon. I love her so very much.

I am joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop was canceled for this week, we will miss it and hope it returns next week.

We are participating in the Ten Things of Thankful Blog Hop

  1. I am thankful that I can sew ( a little) so I could j=help Sammy with his Cat Scout’s hat.

2. For witchery ( the stuff you use so you don’t have to sew something) , I did have to dust off the old iron though. I used it to get the tiny badges on Sammy’s hat.

3. I am thankful it is raining so I don’t have to go out at midnight and look for meteors. I usually don’t mind, but I need to get up early.

4. The reason I need to get up early is —I am going to IKEA! Finally!  With my niece and great-niece. I wish my Mom was going too, but she thinks it will be too crowded.

5. I am thankful Joanie got through her dental and a small bump removed on Thursday. I always worry when anyone I love is going under.

6. For my 49 free books I got on Monday.

7.Our first corn of the year from our garden-fantastic ( that is the actual name of it).

8. Spending time with my mom and the great one on Friday.

9. For a special Chewy package Phoebe will tell you about tomorrow.

10. I am thankful for all of the friends I have made through blogging, I am truly blessed.

 

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 66

Hi everyone! Time for Friendly Fill-Ins. Be sure to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate, it is a pleasure getting to know everyone better.

1. Blind dates _______________.
2. _______________years ago, I _______________________.

3. I admire                         because                             .

4.                         makes me think                              .
My answers:
1. Blind dates can actually work out sometime. That is how I met my hubby, a friend of a friend thought we would be a good match-and she was correct. That blind date was June 4, 1989. I actually refused at first, but changed my mind a week later.
2. 25 years ago, I was planning our wedding and working as a mental health counselor. I only have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and still can’t believe I used to meet with mentally ill people and attempt to help them. They still had therapists and psychiatrists,  but looking back now I realize how unqualified I was along with the rest of the staff. This is probably why so many people with mental illness don’t get to function as well as they could.
3.I admire anyone who fosters cats because I know my heart won’t let me. Maybe I am selfish, but once something is in my care, I can’t give it up. I am sure it breaks their heart every time they have to part with a kitty, but they keep doing it and saving so many.
4. My inflamed ingrown toenail makes me think using scissors to cut my nails wasn’t a wise choice. 🙂
We are also joining Feline Friday which is currently being hosted by Comedy Plus.
My Sammy has been at Cat Scouts summer camp ( virtually) all week. Here he is working on a project of sewing a cap. Come back tomorrow to see how he looks in it.

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I got to see Grammie on Wednesday. I love her so very much.

I am also thankful that my purrince wrote me another poem he is so romantic.

Sunshine Gurl”
“Who iss thee sweetest gurl
inn thee hole wide werld?
Who iss thee kitty gurl with those purrty eyess
what causess mee to endlesslee sigh??
Who iss thee kindest gurl who caress
an all wayss sharess??
Mee sweet Sunshine Gurl…
who sendss mee mind inn to a twirl.
Deerest sunny shiney Phoebe
Pleeze do not efurr leeve mee!”
bye yur Poe-etick Purrince, Siddhartha Henry
with all mee Luv an ***paw kissesss*** xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I am also thankful that we were nominated by Crystal’s Site for a Lovely Blog Award. We already have this, but I still appreciate the thought-thank you!

What fresh hell is this? Mom is already buying Halloween costumes. Phoeey!!! I am not wearing this octopus. I want to at least have something pretty.

Now here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter I. I didn’t use one of the word prompts though.

IRON
Mom and Grammie are a lot alike
neither ever ride a bike.
Both have black hair
and like to swear, I mean share.
Neither has a claim to fame,
but they have one thing that is not the same.
Grammie would never leave her house
if there was a wrinkle in her blouse.
Mom uses her iron, never
She has had the same one forever
Grammie needs a new one every year
Now mom is mad at me, I fear

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. Blind dates _______________.
2. _______________years ago, I _______________________.

3. I admire                         because                             .

4.                         makes me think                              .

Tuxie Tuesday

Hi everyone! Emmy wanted to say hi today.

Hi!

Now would you look at all these books. Mom is always giving stuff away and decluttering, but she seems to have lost her mind. Her and Dad went to a book sale, it was the last day and all books were free so she came home with 49!!!! Of those, 4 were for Dad, 1 for Grammie ,1 for The Great One

and the rest were all for her. I think I should pee on them, I would be doing her a favor because she would have to get rid of them. This is just too much clutter. And ironically, one of the books is titled, Throw Out Fifty Things. Mom read it and threw away 50 things back in 2012, and continues to declutter, but she clearly has given up.

I hope Grammie visits soon. I love her so very much. She is supposed to be here Wednesday.

And the winner of the Sharknado catnip mat and crocheted fishies is As the World Purrs!

PS: If you have a wordpress blog and don’t see a comment from Mom, please check SPAM. Every once in a while WordPress decided it doesn’t like her and does that. Sorry.

 

 

 

 

Awww…….Mondays

Hi everyone! We are not joining the book blog hop because I haven’t read anything worth recommending-unless the new IKEA catalog counts. I have spent way too much time with that. Joanie still wants to do a review though and she is joining Comedy Plus’ Awww… Mondays Blog Hop.

This book is stupid. The author let someone move his cheese. If I had some cheese no one would move it because it would be in my tummy.

Thank you Joanie for that interesting review. This is actually a classic that we own although I have yet to find any cheese 🙂

Make sure you comment on yesterday’s post for a chance to win this shark themed catnip mat. Phoebe will announce the winner tomorrow.
