Hi, everyone! Today I am not joining the reading hop because I have nothing great to tell you about. I am reading, but nothing that I am thrilled with enough to recommend. I have been reading less books too because I scored a bunch of magazines at the library last week. Every January they clean house and give away the previous year’s worth of magazines. I was able to get HGTV, Prevention and some others too. I don’t take the entire year’s worth, I go through them and take some of each so there will be some left for others. I pass them along when I am done with them too.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays Blog Hop. All you need to enter is an awww worthy photo. Here is Sammy “shrimping” as it is called at Cat Scouts.

He even earned a badge for this.


    1. Sammy is a cutie 🙂 George is too. Glad you have been reading some good books. XO

  1. Sammy sure looks like a comfy shrimp!!

    We have oodles of magazines here, and they sure tien to pile up…when our auntie comes she brings boxes full of them…then petcretary sorts them into piles of type and then she arranges them by date…then she decides which ones will get read (more like quickly perused), and then some get passed on while others get trashed, MOL! She likes to cull good recipes. so she saves them till the last. She always has a bunch in her car to read if she has to wait or to take to appointments…those she leaves for others to read. Some of them are in Dutch, so those take a bit longer to read through…but it is how she keeps up with her Dutch language skills, else she would loose them.

  2. Oh my goodness, Sammy, you are the cutest shrimp ever! We are just wrapping up our annual holiday reading around here, and then we’ll back to our usual reading habits. I got some books for Christmas that I can’t wait to get my hands on! Purrs to all of you!

  3. Way to go on the magazines. We have a friend that supplies my husband with lots of magazines during the year. He loves getting them.

    Sammy is a huge awww. I love to watch kitties sleep and I love the positions they can get themselves in to sleep.

    Have a purrfect Awww Monday Sammy. My best to your wonderful mom. ☺

  4. Over the weekend, I finished Apprentice Cat by Virginia Ripple – it is from the point of view of cats and the main protagonist is Toby, sort of a feline Harry Potter.

  5. Grat shrimping…mom needs to post mine too.
    Mom loves her magazines especially Reader’s digest and Our State, NC’s magazine

    1. Sammy thanks you, we think you will do a great shrimp too. I like Reader’s Digest too.

  6. dood !!! a shrimpz merit badge soundz total lee rite up R mor wayz N one !!!! how kewl iz that !!!!!

  7. Yippee for free magazines! Our Mom is reading a triple novel, meaning three novels in one big book. It’s her first exposure to Dean Koontz and since these three novels were written in the seventies and early eighties, she’s already rolling her eyes left and right at the dated references. We like the sound of shrimping much better than “doing the donut.”

    1. I haven’t heard it called doing the donut 🙂 I read a few Dean Koontz- too scary.

  8. That is a cute picture of Sammy the shrimp! I should have entered yesterday’s selfie for the Aww blog hop.

  9. You sure make an adorable shrimp Sammy! 🙂 Tell your mama to enjoy her magazines…some times it’s nice to change things up 🙂
