Yellow Submarine

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade. Today is also Y day for The A-Z Blogging Challenge.

I used lunapic cartoon effect on a photo of KaTwo posing with the crocheted yellow submarine. I like how it makes the submarine stand out. Monday is the last day of the challenge and after that, I will be having a giveaway of all the crocheted items.

I did not get a chance to bring Trouble to get spayed this week, but she will go Tuesday and I will have her FELV/FIV tested. Hopefully, after she heals she can fit right in. She is a sweetie, it is Sammy I worry about causing a problem, but I am hoping he will be more accepting of a female than he has been with Brody. Although, for the most part, he coexists with Brody.

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful. And Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

My art ties in with The A-Z Blogging Challenge actually my crocheted Minion is my art because I am too lazy to edit the photo.

Much better than yesterday’s lemon. I am quite proud of this one.

KaTwo is posing with it. My poor cats have to pose with everything, but they don’t get to play with these items because I am giving them all away in a big giveaway at the end of the month.

Here are my thankfuls- all book related this week.

  1. Went to my first book sale of the year with a friend.
  2. Found some books I didn’t even know existed.
  3. Going back to the book sale today for half price day- 50 cents for paperbacks and $1 for hardcover.
  4. Bookstores- I went to Barnes and Noble this week and made a list of 12 books to get from the library.
  5. The library and being able to get books from any library in the region delivered right to town.
  6. My friends Suzanne and Dave sent me some books for The Great One and for me too.
  7. Kindle- I prefer real books, but I get some good freebies on there.
  8. My kitties like to hang out with me when I read.

These last two are self-promotions-sorry. Most of you know about these and probably already own them, but just in case there are new readers.

9. Spooky’s story was included in Black Cats Tell All. click here.To order your own,

10. Some anecdotes about my cats are included in Makin’ Biscuits: Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them- to get your own copy- click here.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day. 

I am thankful that I can still jump up to the tall bureau this kitty cave is on. Joanie thinks it is hers, but she needs to share.

Poor Joanie, she watched Gremlins and now she is very afraid of Gremmie getting wet. She covered him in plastic to protect him ( don’t worry, she gave him air holes to breathe and eat).

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

Stairs leading somewhere
go up if you dare.
Nothing is that scary
not like the movie, Carrie.
Maybe there is a treasure
something you can’t measure.
Now climb those stairs,
I promise there are no bears.

 

Grammie has been complaining that kaTwo never gets blog time so here she is , helping with the blog.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie at McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Right now, they both have worpress blogs so they can’t display the link on their blog, you will be redirected to a separate page. We are working to find a new link service that is compatible with wordpress, any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

1. Trust________________.

2. I would protest _____________________.
3. I have                  since                .

4. Right now, I                   .

 

Santa Was Good to Us

Hi everyone! We hope you all had a nice Christmas.

Sammy thinks Santa left him cookies

Grammie got me lots of treats

Emmy got a brown mouse in her stocking

Mommy got Daddy a telescope ( this is him assembling it)

 

Millie opened this big container of treats from Grammie

KaTwo got these toys from Grammie

And Joanie got her Gremlin, she named him Gremmie

We think maybe Grammie is the real Santa.

Mom even did something stupid for me to write about. She was making gingerbread truffles so she melted white chocolate in the microwave. She thought she set it for a minute and wandered off, when she got back in the room, the microwave was still on and she realized she hit an extra zero so it was set for 10 minutes. Luckily, it had only been 3 minutes, enough to ruin the chocolate, but she was able to save the bowl.

Hi everyone! Today we have 4 more letters to Santa. First, I want to tell you about my Grumpy giveaway. You can win a Grumpy Cat book, a stuffed Grumpy Cat wearing a Santa hat and 5 Grumpy notecards.

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!
