Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

  I iz thankful that mom bought me a new blankie a few weeks ago and I liked it so much that she bought me a backup blankie. You may wonder why I get 2 blankies. I am special because I sleep between my Mom and Dad for most of the night. My blankies have Pusheen the Cat on them , Petco clearance $3.00.

Mom said to thank everyone who gave suggestions for the book vases. She is going to try some of your ideas and will post the results when they are completed.

And here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is the photo we had to write a poem about: for today.

Sometimes problems get you down
instead of a smile, you want to frown.
You feel like you are in the dark
in a flood without an ark.
Instead of feeling dread
just keep moving ahead.
If you try with all your might,
you will soon see the light.

And for the A-Z Blogging Challenge, we have Sammy posing with an eyeball.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday.

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

Penny’s Tips Volume 13

Hi everyone! I have an unusual tip, more of a question actually. Mom made these book vases and she thinks they look to plain. I suggested she decorate them with pennies, but she doesn’t want to.

Any better suggestions of how to perk them up?

Millie is modeling Mom’s A-Z Challenge , C creation- coal , she makes these for naughty kitties at Christmas.

Don’t forget to comment on yesterday’s post to enter the giveaway for this catnip mat and socks ( Joanie is not included). Giveaway closes at 10 PM ( EST) April 3rd.

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays, McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Mewsic Moves Me ( hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.) And it is day 2 of A-Z Blogging Challenge.

B is for baseball.

Joanie is posing with our spark for this week which is also a giveaway. The catnip mat says “Live Your Life in the Meow” and the socks say “Stay Pawsitive”. To  enter just leave a comment on today’s post, the giveaway closes at 10pm (EST) Tuesday night. Winner will be announced Wednesday.

This week was our choice for the Mewsic hop.We just had a Blue Moon so I thought I would go with songs with moon in the title.

  1. Creedence Clearwater Revival-Bad Moon Rising -this is my hubby’s favorite group.

 

2. Fly Me to the Moon (Frank Sinatra)-my all time favorite singer.

3. Moon River (Andy Williams)- I didn’t know about this song until this episode of Sex and the City.

Do you have another Moon song you prefer?

I am skipping the Reading Hop this week because I haven’t had a chance to read much.

 

Happy Easter!

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

And the A-Z Blogging Challenge starts today. Our first creation is a crocheted avocado, well, it is half of an avocado.

 

Poor Mrs. Potato Head, Gremmie got her with the potato peeler. *

We hope all who celebrate have a wonderful Easter.

* April Fool! Gremmie and Mrs. Potato Head are still friends. That was a real potato 🙂

 

Z is for Zeppelin

Hi everyone! I am such a dip that I forgot to post my Z for the A-Z challenge in Sunday’s post.  Z is for Zeppelin. I couldn’t find a free pattern so I made it up as I went along.

And now for the fun part, I am giving everything away to 2 lucky winners. Each winner will get 11 toys and 2 hats.Just leave a comment saying which item I made was your favorite. Phoebe will announce the winners on Thursday.

We are also joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? blog hops.

Memoirs are my favorite genre so I read Insomniac City by Bill Hayes even though I was not familiar with his writing before reading this. I can’t even put into words how much I enjoyed this book. Mr. Hayes lost his partner in San Fransisco suddenly then he moves to NYC and finds love again with Oliver Sacks ( another author I was unfamiliar with, but will read now).

I really enjoyed his style of writing and how he chose his words. Here is one quote, ” I’ve come to believe that a good cry is like a car wash for the soul.” Another quote after describing some books falling over and making a sound ” …..that sound alone is the reason to have books. May books never disappear. ” I also enjoyed his love of NYC and all the positive encounters he has with strangers.

I feel bad that I haven’t read any cat books lately, I will soon though. I think I spotted a black and white cat last night so I put out food and something ate it, but hubby thinks it was a skunk. Time will smell, I mean tell.

 

Shopping Around the World

Hi everyone! Today we are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and  Bacon’s Shopping Around the World which is being hosted by our friends Kali and Shoko.

This month they asked for a seafood dish. Mom doesn’t eat seafood except for solid white albacore tuna and even that she has a love/hate relationship with.

Big mistake sending Joanie and Sammy to the store for the ingredients.

Tuna Macaroni Salad

Ingredients:

Box of small shell pasta $1.00

mayonnaise $2.99 for Hellman’s 30 oz.

5 oz. can of solid white albacore tuna in water -drained and flaked  store brand free this week with purchase of Hellman’s.

1 cucumber-peeled and chopped $1

salt and pepper

Directions:

Cook pasta according to directions on box, drain then add cucumber, tuna, salt and pepper and mayonnaise, stir together and chill in refrigerator.

Sorry, that is the best we could do for seafood. Mom usually shares the tuna with us too so there is less in the salad.

I got to see Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much. I am going to see her on Monday too.

The A-Z Blogging Challenge ends tomorrow- any guesses on what Mom made for Z? She is very proud of it, there was no pattern so she made it up as she went along. Sometime this week we will be having a giveaway for 2 lucky winners to split all the A-Z loot.

 

 

Hopping Saturday

And for the A-Z Blogging Challenge, we have a yarmulke.

 

 

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 51

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins Week 51- next week will be a full year since we started them and we appreciate and thank all who participate. Remember to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader, you can also answer in the comment section.

1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is _________________________________.

2. If I could afford a billboard, it would say ___________________________________.

3. I have a hard time                              .

4. I really enjoy                               .
My answers:
1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is An Interrupted Life: The Diaries 1941-1943 by Etty Hillesum.I reviewed this book back in September 2016.
If I had the money, I would buy the rights and get it made into a movie. I found it even more interesting than Anne Frank’s Diary because Etty was in her 20’s when this was written and was trying to find love as more of her rights were being taken away. It is so good that I haven’t finished it because I know there will be nothing else of hers to read.
2. I could afford a billboard, it would say SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS!
3. I have a hard time WITH ANY KIND OF CHANGE.
4. I really enjoy BEING HOME WITH MY CATS.
And for The A-Z Blogging Challenge, we have an x-mas tree, I didn’t want to take the Christ out of Christmas, but I couldn’t think of any other X to crochet.
