Caturday Saturday- Dr. Seuss Day

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade. We are also joining the Dr. Seuss Blog Hop hosted by LLB Our Backyard.

 

I thought we would do another giveaway with the mat I made on Monday. Penny wanted to keep it, but I convinced her that she has more than enough mats. To enter, leave a comment on this post by 9 PM ( EST) on Sunday. Sorry I can only afford shipping to US residents.

Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head wanted in on the fun too. I made a puzzle of them, click below to play.

Caturday Saturday

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

Emmy wants to remind everyone of our Dr. Seuss giveaway so I used Lunapic to turn her into a cartoon. I also made a puzzle- it took me 18 minutes and 18 seconds. I am sure you can beat that.

To enter the giveaway, be sure to leave a comment on the Thankful Thursday post. Winner will be announced Sunday. You have until 9PM ( EST) Saturday to enter.

Someone asked if I could give instructions on making a catnip mat. I am going to do a post about it on Monday.

Hopefully the prize will arrive to the winner in time for Dr. Seuss Day on March 2nd.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo prompt:

Norman Rockwell (1894-1978), “First Signs of Spring,” 1947. Oil on canvas, 22″ x 17″. Cover illustration for “The Saturday Evening Post,” March 22, 1947.

You reap what you sow,
if it is grass, you’ll have to mow.
Wait until after the last freeze
to plant your peas.
And if you want your greens,
plant spinach and beans.
now the most important we must address
it to be sure to plant seeds of kindness.

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.

1. I believe ____________.
 
2. I need to go Marie Kondo* on my _________________________.
 
3. It does no good to _________.

4. I find _________ to be a walk in the park.
*If you are not familiar with Marie Kondo, it basically means. what do you need to declutter.

Penny’s Tips- Volume 9

Hi everyone! It is about time I got a turn to do my tips.

See this chair. It was wobbly so mom tapes a penny ( not me) to the bottom of one of the legs and now it doesn’t wobble.

Pardon me while I eat my treats. I refused to pose unless I got paid in advance.

Emmy asked me to remind you that you have until 9PM EST on Tuesday to comment on Sunday’s post for a chance to win the Dr. Seuss Giveaway. It is open to all.

 

 

A Hopping Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww. .. Mondays, McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Curious as a Cathy Mewsic Moves Me Blog Hops. Once again, I am skipping the book hop because I haven’t read anything this week worth writing about.

The Mewsic theme this week is TV or Movie theme songs. There are so many that I love, it was tough to narrow it down.

  1. Laverne and Shirley Theme Song ( I used to love this show. My friend and I would pretend to be them, I always wanted to be Shirley). Even as a child, I loved their optimism.

2. Family Ties Theme Song. I loved this show when I was in high school.

3. Fame

4. My all-time favorite-The Nanny. I used to have my own version for KaChoo.

And here is my Spark- Keep Calm and Sing Soft Kitty. It isn’t a theme song, but it is on Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon often.

Emmy wants me to remind everyone they have until Tuesday 9PM EST to enter her Dr. Seuss Giveaway. Just comment on yesterday’s post to enter.
