Penny’s Tips Volume 151

Hi everyone. Before we get started, we want to give our condolences to our friend, Kommando Kitty’s family on her passing.

I have been helping my dad with his seed order.

He is pretty picky about the varieties of vegetables he grows so he has to order them from catalogs. If you are not as picky, you can save a lot on seeds. The Dollar Tree has packages 4 for $1 . And your local library may have a seed library too. Ours does, people donate seeds they don’t want or need and you can take what you need for free.

And Valentine’s Day will be here next week so if you are short on funds, check out some of these freebies. There are lots of cat themed books to get on your Kindle for free, most are cozy mysteries, but there is even one with recipes to make your own cat food.

  1. Simple Science Diet Cat Food. Click here. 

2. Cozy Cat Caper Mystery Boxed Set Books 1-3, Click here. 

3. The Case of the Crazy Cat Lady by Debbie De Louise. Click here.

or maybe a cookbook to try a new recipe for your sweetheart.

4. Copycat Recipes, Volume 2. Click here. 

5. Slow Cooker Soup Cookbook. Click here. 

And I found a free coloring page with kitties on , Click here.

I can’t take all the credit for this post. I figured if Rosie can have a Girl Friday then I can too. Except I couldn’t find a girl named Friday so I hired my doppleganger, Elvira. Once again, Brody is photobombing.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.



  1. We were sad to hear of the loss of Kommando Kitty. Penny, you are so very helpful! I’m sure your Dad appreciates the assistance! Those are all excellent tips! You, your helper Elvira, and Brody too, all look cute in the pictures! XO

  2. Good idea to help your Dad, Penny….maybe you’ll even get a treat for wages due!

    Elvira could help you get some good gossips, LOL!

    Have fun with all those Valentine freebies!! We love our slow cooker, so thanks! And also for the cat food recipes….we might need that is a stray comes by here….but somehow we don’t think so. We haven’t seen a stray here in years. Guess that is a good thing, right?!

  3. I never knew Kommando Kitty, but have visited with my condolences.
    Those are good tips, I always like a free e book, thank you.

  4. We didn’t know Kommando Kitty either but we know KK was greeted at the gates by many other Angels with a warm welcome. Your Dad ordering his seeds is a sign that Spring is coming soon!!!!

    Hugs, Teddy

  5. Precious things Brody looks absolutely perfect. And Rosie you did great on telling us what to get for Valentine’s. It’s nice to look at seed catalogs right now and decide what you’re going to plant. Lynn brought home some flower magazines the other day just enjoy the pictures. The library is great.

  6. Fun fun fun post!!!
    Oh maybe when Dad’s garden is in full bloom we can see it.
    Hugs Cecilia

    Chaplin: “Yes we are!”
    Charlee: “We hope you you made sure to sneak some catnip seeds into your dad’s order. Gotta get a little something for the kitties, am I right?”
    Oona: “Brody, you are a photo-bombing ninja! Oona is very impressed with your skills!”

    I have a couple of those kitty freebie books. I’ll have to check out the food one.

  12. Like other peeps have said, I know your Dad most certainly appreciates your help with the seeds, Penny. Great you hired Elvira. She truly is your doppleganger. Brody is interested in the goings on it seems. Lots of fun reads! Thank you Penny and Elvira!

  13. My condolences to all who knew and loved Kommando Kitty.

    Thanks for the info, especially about free recipe books.

    I’m glad you have an assistant now, Elvira looks quite competent to do the job.

    As for Brody, he needs a modeling job of his own, he’s so photogenic and likes to be in front of the lens so much.

  14. Oh, so sorry for the family of that lovely kitty. And thank you for GREAT advice about seeds, books, you name it! Mama just ordered radishes, arugula, lots of lettuces and I can’t remember what all….typical….
