Hi everyone! Today is the day for a reflections of the A-Z Blogging Challenge post. This was my third year participating ( and completing) the challenge. I enjoyed it as always and found a few new blogs to follow that I would have not found otherwise. I was disappointed that there was no master list as the previous years. I realize it was too time consuming to manage and keep checking to make sure people posted daily, but I did miss it. I had crocheted several items before the challenge began, but I liked having to make it a priority because there are many days I don’t have time to crochet.
I just finished Alec Baldwin’s memoir, Nevertheless. I enjoyed his first book, A Promise to Ourselves, about his custody battle for his daughter. This book was excellent too, he is not only a great actor, but also very intelligent. He seems to have learned from past mistakes and has incredible insight as to things in his past that led him to make mistakes.
Sammy and Brody are wearing purple collars-did they start a club? I will tell you why tomorrow.
Yes, I have bunny ears on and Mom is going to pay for this. I do make a cute bunny though, don’t I? I haven’t seen Grammie since Thursday-phooey! I love her so very much, I hope she visits me tomorrow.
Sammy wants to show some photos of his Delorean he made for the Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby. He wasn’t able to get the photos up on the Scouts website so this is a first look. He wanted a rust vest to look like Michael J Fox, but Mom is apparently a little color blind- MOL!
Hi everyone! I know you are all waiting to find out all the information I got while I was spying. First off, I found this. Sammy has been getting his car ready for The Cat Scout’s Cardwood Derby. He says his car is top secret, but I know this goes inside of it. I snapped a photo of him working on his car too. Can anyone figure out what kind of car he is building?
And I found this stuff :
I think it has to do with the April A-Z challenge because I found an apple, banana, cork toy, donut, Easter egg, fortune cookie, goldfish and come other stuff too. The big theme reveal is tomorrow, but I think her theme is crochet.
Now, I need all your help to solve a mystery. Where are my shades? I haven’t seen anyone with them lately.
Hi everyone! Sorry this isn’t a great photo, but Mom couldn’t get my latest photos to upload, sometimes she is pretty dippy. Like the other day when she filled the humidifier with a gallon of distilled water and then didn’t put the cover on tight enough. Sploosh! The floor is nice and clean now though- MOL!
I got to see my Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much!
Sammy had a busy day at Cat Scouts on Saturday. He got to run the bobbing for fish booth. I am surprised that he didn’t eat all the fish. Thank you to Teddy’s Mom for this great photo.
We will show you our Bobble hat selfies in a minute, but I must vent first.I have been planning a Valentine’s giveaway, I even had a nice pink catnip mat with hearts on it set aside. Well, I found out today that suck up Brody asked Mom if he could send it to a girl kitty he likes and she let him!!!! She even mailed it for him today. Phooey!
I am very happy I got to see my Grammie on Saturday, I love her so very much. She even brought me an early Valentine’s gift ( I have to share).
Now for the bobble hat. The rest of our crew will be shown next Sunday.
Hi everyone! I am a little dizzy from all that twirling yesterday.
I got to see my Grammie on Saturday and she bought me 2 bags of Temptations because I am sick of Party Mix. I love my Grammie so very much!!! She is going to watch us while mom and Dad go somewhere Monday morning. We are going to have lots of fun. Mom bought me some Fancy Feast too even though it is not the best food for me, she wants me to gain some weight and I am getting picky in my old age.
Don’t worry, I eat canned food, but Mom figures if she sprinkles some on top then I will eat more of it ( I never finish it all).
Prancie complained that she never gets any screen time so I am letting her do a selfie.
My Dad thanks you all for the birthday wishes. Many of you asked if he was upset that Mom had his photo changed into Nic Cage ? No, he didn’t mind because Mom had a special photo made for him. He used to love to watch Battlestar Galactica and this was one of the reasons why he liked it, the cylon in the red dress.
I got to see my Grammie on Saturday, I love her so very much. Even though she didn’t give me any treats-phooey! I hope she will give me treats on Monday or I will think she doesn’t love me anymore.
Toby, would you please tell Penny she is supposed to share those toys you sent. She is NOT sharing.
I hope everyone has a nice week. I will write again Thursday, I think I deserve more than 2 days a week, my posts are more popular than Mom’s. Never mind, that would cut into my nap time.
I thought this book was most appropriate for Rosh Hashanah. Manischewitz, The Matzo Family: The Making of an American Jewish Icon by Laura Manischewitz Alpern tells the story of an immigrant family that started making and selling matzo crackers in 1888, eventually building an empire selling many Jewish foods.Surprisingly, the family has not owned the company since 1991. I am not Jewish, but I love to make matzo ball soup and this is the only brand of matzo meal I will use. Everyone loves my soup, even my little great niece.
Today’s word for the #JHC is Spooky. When I read the list of words for the challenge and saw Spooky listed, I just had to sign up.
I love this photo of Spooky with these stuffed black cats. Spooky was a great sport, always willing to pose for me. My hubby and I miss him so much.
