About pilch92

I'm a happily married 44 year old woman. My hubby ( David) and I have been married for 21 years (October 24, 1992). We started out with one cat and now have 15. 15 is my magic number ( David may like a slightly smaller one), but when any pass away, I don't replace the one that is lost, but I do rescue another. When we got married we were like most people and wanted a family. At some point we both decided that we love our fur family. Some people are made to be parents of 2-legged children and we are made to be parents of those with 4 legs ( although we did have one with 3 legs once-RIP Brina). It has taken me years to realize that this is my calling. I want to help all cats any way I can. If I can write about something that happened to one of my cats and help another in the process then I will be happy.

4. A feast is not a feast without _________.
My answers:
1. I can’t wait to have cornbread stuffing with cranberries and green bean casserole for Thanksgiving.
2. I am thankful for my hubby, mom, niece, great-nieces, my kitties, my home and my life in general. Also thankful for all the friends I have made through blogging including all who are reading this.
3. When it comes to pie, banana cream is my favorite, but I never make it.For Thanksgiving, I will make chocolate cream and apple.
4. A feast is not a feast without appetizers- they are my favorite part of a meal. My favorites are a cheeseball and crackers, buffalo chicken dip and spinach dip. Speaking of cheeseballs, my great-niece’s 3rd birthday party was a Frozen theme so I made an Olaf cheeseball.
Emmy likes resting on my legs, sometimes she even sits on my lap. She is a sweetie.

Thankful Thursday

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

Sammy is thankful he lives in  a warm house so he doesn’t need to wear this coat which is a little too small for him. I am thankful that I am getting a new sewing machine for Christmas and my Mom is letting me use it early to finish a few mats I promised to people. Then I will let her wrap it 🙂

Here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this cute photo. I let my Sammy write this one being that his poem last week was so well received.

Sometimes we all feel small like an ant,
a mountain to climb that we just can’t.
All you need to do change your mind,
no need to stay confined.
One can accomplish anything,
except maybe become a king.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

Wordless Wednesday

Hi everyone!

Brody is here today to ask a favor. His lady love, Leia of The Whiskeratti has been sick. She needs some tests to find out what us wrong. Her mom set up a GoFundMe page. We know everyone can’t afford to donate, but purrs and prayers are free.

Prancie has agreed to help out, she is letting us have 5 copies of Prancie’s Prayer. For anyone that donates $10 today, November 14th, we will send you a book. Sorry, we can only afford to ship in the USA. Just donate on the GoFund page and let us know in the comments. Mom wishes she could do more, but her sewing machine is currently broken so she can’t make catnip mats like the last time.

Penny’s Tips Volume 28

Hi everyone! I have a great tip today just in time for your holiday baking.

You can use pennies as pie weights. My mom just learned what that is….every time she makes a crust for the chocolate cream pie, it has bubbles on the bottom. I hope she tries this.

 Sorry, I insist she give me my treats in advance.

You just put the pie crust in the bottom ( use your imagination, I didn’t have a crust for the photo).

Then you put parchment paper or aluminum foil over it and line it with pennies, then bake as usual. They will hold it down so it won’t bubble. I recommend washing the pennies first even though there is a layer protecting the crust.

Veteran’s Day

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.) The mewsic theme this week is a freebie so I decided to go with some patriotic music for Veteran’s Day. I am thankful to all who serve and have served.

My Dad was in the Air Force.   I use this photo every year of my Angel Lucy posing with his flag and picture.

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone. Before we get started we want to remember a fellow blogger and sweet friend. I was very sad to read that Sarah Andrews ( Roby Sweet) passed away. She was an amazing writer, I loved her Miss Cuddlywump’s series and her blog posts as well. To read her obituary and sign the guest book, click here.

 

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade.

I used Lunapic once again because it is so easy. I used the “Night” effect on Trouble. She may have been acting good in yesterday’s photo, but she scared the heck out of my husband and I yesterday. We couldn’t locate her for a few hours and searched everywhere. My hubby and I were getting mad at each other. He insisted she must be in one of the boxes of Halloween decorations and I knew that wasn’t possible, but I went through them all- twice. She was either in our bedroom or the spare room, I left both doors open and she finally came strolling into the living room like nothing had happened. Like she didn’t know we had been calling for her and shaking the treat container. We had checked every closet, under every piece of furniture, even outside. She definitely won that round of hide and seek.

Thankful Thursday

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

 I am thankful for this great toy our friends at Eel Creek Chronicles sent to us. It is for us all to share, but I have been hogging it.

Mom said I had to write a poem to go with this photo. I have had a class in poetry at Cat Scouts camp last summer. Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day.

Is this a sign for a car or boat?
I think someone opened the moat.
All I know is I am glad I am not there,
I would rather get caught in my underwear.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
