#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! Today is Chewy day and we are joining the Chewy Blog Hop hosted by Sugar Golden Woofs and Oz the Terrier.

*Disclaimer-We received a 365 Cats Page-A-Day 2018 calendar for free in exchange for a fair review.

 

Did you know that Chewy carries a wide variety of calendars? I was thrilled to find that out and get one to review.

 Emmy insisted I find a tuxie on it and we did, on January 26th. The photos in here are spectacular.

Chewy has 10 different cat calendars and they are all under list price. To check them out, click here

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Sorry , but Joanie will not be doing a book review. She has some trouble with her “gremlins”.

  Help!! They iz multiplying.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awwww….Mondays, McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Emmy is posing with A Bump in the Road by Roby Sweet. I am sure most of you are familiar with her Miss. Cuddlywump’s Investigates series, but I am a little late to the party. I have been following her blog, The Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles for a long time.

A Bump in the Road is the first in a series of five mysteries. I really enjoyed this book and didn’t want it to end so I am thrilled there are four more to read and Christmas is coming ( hint, hint Mom). Miss Cuddlywumps is a beautiful and very intelligent calico cat that is adopted by a 40-something year old single woman named Rory.

Miss Cuddlywumps happens to witness a murder in Rory’s front yard. She attempts to investigate it herself, but is caught every time she sneaks out. I am in love with Miss Cuddlywumps and enjoyed reading her efforts to help solve the murder.

And here is my Spark for the week. “A minute of thought is worth more than an hour of talk.” from the book , How Would Buddha Think by Barbara Ann Kipfer.

 

 

 

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! Sorry, I am a little distracted right now. I am having my daily allotment of venison.

This has been a boring week, my mom hasn’t even done anything stupid for me to write about.

Emmy wants to say hi, she claims she has only been sitting on mom because it is cold and she wants her heat.

We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop. I hope you all have a great day!

 

Veteran’s Day

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful. I am reusing my art from 2015. Lucy was posing with my father’s Air Force photo and his flag.

Here are my thankfuls:

  1. I am thankful to all who served and are currently serving. I have the utmost respect for anyone who is willing to give their life for people they have never met.
  2. For scoring a 21 pound turkey for $1.32. The grocery store in the next town had them for 39cents a pound and they accept the $7 off coupon from their competitor.
  3. Hubby and I got to finally go to his favorite restaurant for a long overdue birthday dinner ( his birthday is in January, but he had a blood clot and then Phoebe was sick, etc.).
  4. One of our friends that lives in the same town as the restaurant met us there for dinner, it was nice to catch up.
  5. Coffee with a different friend on Friday.
  6. Lots of leftover cake from the great one’s birthday party.
  7. Emmy finally sat on my lap and has done it more than once.

8. Going shopping today with my mom, niece and the great one.

9. The great one already loves books, she opened some at her party last week and sat right down to look at them instead of moving on to the next gift.

10. Lots of great books that I am currently reading.

Happy Halloween!

Hi everyone. Before we show our Halloween costumes, I have a Prancie update. She is improving and can walk pretty well, just a little unsteady. The vet did not think she had a stroke. She thinks it is vestibular and possibly from an ear infection. She had an antibiotic shot and has ear drops. Thank you all for the purrs and prayers.

First off, black cats don’t need costumes, they are perfect just as they are. And Polar Bear is impossible to dress so he decided to pose with a ghost.

The other eight went with an ocean theme.

Sammy as Popeye with Olive Oil and Sweet Pea ( actually, it is a sugar snap pea).

 

Emmy is a penguin

Penny is a crab ( she is mad that she couldn’t do her tips today).

Millie is a pirate

Brody is an octopus

Joanie is the Gorton’s Fisherwoman

Prancie is a mermaid

( photo taken before she got sick)

KaTwo is a shark

Which one do you like best? Have a great day!

Three Hops in One

Hi everyone! We have three hops to join today. Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?, Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays and McGuffy’s Reader Sparks.

First off is Joanie’s weekly review.

Love with a Chance of Drowning by Torre DeRoche. I not drowning for anyone, I am glad my boyfriend, Simon is land lover like me.

Thank you Joanie. I actually loved this book. I am not sure why because I am not a fan of the ocean, I can’t even stand the smell. For some reason though this memoir pulled me right in. A 25 year old Australian girl spending a year in the USA meets a 30 year old man planning to embark on a journey around the world in his used yacht. When the time comes, they are still together and she joins him. It is quite an adventure with some humorous parts and some dangerous ones too.

I actually bought this at The Dollar Tree, the word memoir on the cover got me.Now that I have enjoyed it, I am going to give it away. If you want to be entered in the giveaway just say so in the comments. Books are heavy though so I can only afford to send it to someone in the USA, sorry.

My Spark for the week is: Kindness is free, sprinkle that stuff everywhere.I saw that quote on Pinterest with no author listed. Emmy made a little twist on it.

Sunday Selfies Tocktober Edition Part 1

Hi everyone! Thanks for welcoming me on Thursday. This writing stuff is pretty tiring.

I am studying up this Wicked book for some tips. I need to get tough, Emmy and Sammy seem to want to stage a coup.

I was told it was Tocktober. I always wondered why mom was so obsessed with taking photos of our bottoms during Grammie’s birthday month.so here are four of our tocks for this week: Mine

Penny

Emmy and Brody

We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and The Pet Blogger Showcase, our friends’ Ellie, Momma and BearCat featured Phoebe again. Thank you.

PS: Penny is starting a new monthly  feature on Tuesday.

And tomorrow our friend Annie at McGuffy’s Reader is starting a new hop to help everyone start their week on a positive note. To join, post a quote or photo of something that will “spark” the positive.
