How I Spent My Summer Vacation Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Today Blogville is having a How I Spent My Summer Vacation Blog Hop. A few of my kitties wanted to participate so here they are:

  I became an adventure cat. I go on 2 walks with my folks every day ( except when it rains). And my Grammie visited me a lot- I love her so very much.

I went to Cat Scouts Summer Camp. I made this hat, climbed the Half Dome and had lots of fun with my Scout friends.

I settled into my forever home.

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I am so mad at mom, she locked me in the bathroom for 5 hours* on Friday. The cable guy was here and she said I am a flight risk- phooey!

Grammie will be here Monday to stay with us while mom and dad are out for a few hours. I love her so very much! I am sure she will cater to my every whim except going outside.

My selfie this week is for Free Tony. I read about it on Caren and Cody’s Blog and you can too. I posted it on Twitter @aldf

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

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I have had a great week. I got to see my Grammie. I love her so very much. And I got a letter in the mail from my purrince with a photo of him cuddled up to a photo of me. I am such a lucky girl.

My mom actually bought me some treats. And look-we found a 4-leaf clover. Mom thinks she found it, but I led her right to it. Don’t worry, I didn’t eat it- she put it in her checkbook, she said that needs all the luck it can get- MOL!


Poor Daddy, he was carrying me across the street and a neighbor drove by and beeped and was laughing at him. What is so funny about a man carrying a pretty kitty in a pink dress?

This week for Sammy’s Poetry Day, I decided to choose my own M word. I chose my fellow Crotchety Cougar, Madi to write about.

Madi
Madi is everyone’s friend
on her, you can always depend
Her favorite color is red,
she loves to nap on the bed.
Madi is also a Cat Scout
she would never pout
She doesn’t have a single quirk
and boy that girl can twerk!

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.


1. September bucket list: 1. _________________ 2. ________________…………..………………..

2. If I came with a warning label, it would say ___________________________________________.

3. Truth be told,                         .

4. I would rather                      than                           .

 

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! Check out all this hay! I forgot how much I love hay. I used to steal it from the rabbits when we had them.

Mom locked Dad out of the house at 11 PM the other night. No, they weren’t fighting, mom just isn’t too bright. Dad had gone out to get a breath of air and bring the flag inside, but mom thought he was in the bathroom. She went in the kitchen and noticed the porch light on and the door unlocked and thought he had forgotten them so she shut the light off and locked up. Then the doorbell rang and she got scared wondering who would be at the door at that hour-MOL!

She was supposed to be decluttering today, but she ended up at a tag sale. She was all proud that she got a telescope for Dad for $3 until she got it home and he pointed out that it was missing an eyepiece. I really think I should write a book about all the stupid things she does.

I got to see Grammie on Thursday, I love her so very much. She got to see me walking on my harness.

Millie and Penny want to do selfies today so here they are:

We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and The Pet Blogger Showcase.

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that I have been getting to go for two walks a day with my folks.

Shhh! Don’t tell the farmer I got on his equipment. I knew I could smell hay.

I am quite the adventure cat. I don’t know why everyone stares when they ride by and see my folks walking me on our own property.

Grammie picked up my medicine at the vet today- thanks Grammie. I love you so very much. I still take my anti-nausea meds so I won’t lose my appetite.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter L- I used all 4 words just like Madi does.

I will never be a lap cat
but sometimes I will wear a hat.
I like beef and turkey, but not lamb
I sure hope I get a visit from my Gram(mie)
I have a hunch
mom and Grammie are going to lunch
I hope they get me a new harness
after Labor day I can’t wear a pink dress

And the winner is Crystal’s Photo Blogging Site. Her adorable kitty will enjoy the mat.

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. My favorite fictional character is ______________________-.

2.  A new tv show or film I am looking forward to this Fall is ____________________.

3. One of my very favourite books is                       .

4. The best time to                        is                        .

Is It Too Early For Apples?

Hi everyone! Mom has been destroying books again! Do you remember last year she made pumpkins? If not, click here.

  I didn’t want to get too close, that spray paint smells.

  Here are some of the finished apples, if you look close, you will see a worm in one of them.

All you do is take the cover off an old paperback, cut an apple shape out of the book. Then you fold the book back and glue the spine. You can also add drops of glue at the top of each page ( mom didn’t, she is lazy). Some of the books ended up with built-in stems that she painted green ( I think she should have painted them brown). And others, she added a piece of a pussy willow branch. Then she added ribbons and a worm in one 🙂

She is going to donate these to the senior center to put on tables at their monthly birthday dinner then they can give them away, but she said I could take one for a giveaway.

  I am having a giveaway of this book apple and this beautiful apple print catnip mat. Just leave a comment on today’s post before Wednesday 9PM (EST). I will announce the winner on Thursday. Feel free to tell me how beautiful I am, I don’t mind.

We are joining Create-with-Joy’s Inspire me Monday Blog Hop ( Yes, I know it is Tuesday). There are almost 200 links on this hop with lots of crafts and recipes.

PS: I hope Grammie visits me soon, I love her so very much.

  2. Thankful for everyone’s purrs and prayers for Phoebe
  3. For no trips to the vet this week.

  5. No plans for the weekend so I will have more time to read.
  6. Joanne’s fabric, so many great fabrics and good prices.
  7. Thankful I got to go out for the day with my Mom .
  8. Thankful my hubby takes good care of the kitties when I go out and gives me an update when I call at noon.
  9. Another successful batch of blueberry ice cream-it is so good.
  10. Thankful for everyone who reads my posts. I appreciate all of you.

 

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Before I get started, I want to have a moment of silence for our friend Esme, who left for The Rainbow Bridge last week. Please visit her family if you haven’t already. Click here..

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful to feel better this week and I am thankful for all your purrs and prayers.

I haven’t seen Grammie since last Wednesday. I hope she comes to see me soon, I love her so very much.

How cute do I look in my harness? Here I am looking for a four leaf clover.

Joanie wants us to call her Dr. Joanie because she took her own stitches out. Her recheck was good though and she is all healed.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. I used all 4 of the K word prompts this week.

My purrince is really my king
this is not just some fling
Our love is true
without him I ‘d be blue
The only boy with a key to my heart
it was true love right from the start
He makes my heart kindle
may our fire never dwindle

 

Mom wants to join Wandering Through The Shelves Thursday Movie Picks Blog Hop this week because the theme is the stage.

Here’s my list- all musicals, I can’t sing, but I love musicals.

1. Grease (1978)- I had such a crush on John Travolta ( yes, someone before Nic Cage) when I was a kid, my parents took me to see this. Every time I hear a song from it, I want to burst into song ( but I only do when alone, I don’t want to hurt anyone’s eardrums 🙂 ).

2. Annie ( 1982)- There have been other versions since, but I think this is the best.

3.Jersey Boys (2014)- The story of Frankie Vali and The Four Seasons.

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

1._____________________ is a waste of time.

2. My favorite app is ____________________.

3. My first car was ___________________.

4. The best car I ever owned was ____________________, because ____________.
