Mewsic and More Monday

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 theme for this week s the word shadow in the title.

I immediately thought of Moon Shadow. I remember Mandy Moore singing it on This is Us so I looked for a video, unfortunately it only shows her signing for the last 30 seconds of the clip, but fans of the show will enjoy the whole thing.

And here is a video of her singing the entire song-

And Joanie is posing with our book choices of the week.We are joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Thanks A Thousand : A Gratitude Journey by A.J.Jacobs is a short book with only about 100 pages to read and several pages of credits at the end. I am a fan of the author’s work and how he immerses himself in a subject. This time he wants to thank everyone that makes his morning cup of coffee possible. Amazingly, that is around 1,000 people. I never put that much thought into all that is involved in buying a cup of coffee. He even goes to the place where the beans were sourced from. Others thanked including the inventor of the plastic top on to-go cups, truck drivers,the barista and so many more. An interesting little read.

Born to Be Posthumous: The Eccentric Life and Mysterious Genius of Edward Gorey by Mark Dery is one i just started reading. I am not familiar with his work, but he was an illustrator and writer. I decided to read it because he had 6 cats so I immediately decided he was wonderful. He also owned 20,000 books. Sounds like a cool guy.

And in other news, Gremmie got some new clothes.

I bought this garland on clearance at Michael’s and pulled the clothes off for him. The doubles will go to The Great One for her dolls.

Thankful Thursday

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

 Joanie is thankful for her Gremmie. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are going to watch him today. Joanie is going for a dental and to have two little spots removed. A few years ago, she had a mast cell tumor on her face that I had removed. These look similar so I want them off too. If you could spare a prayer and some purrs it would be greatly appreciated.

And we are thankful to Teddy’s mom who comes up with the best photo prompts for Sammy’s Poetry Day .

Years ago woman went here once a week,
a little gossip they would seek.
A place to get away
while the kids went out to play.
Hair styled like a beehive,
this was before the invention of a hard drive.
Then lots of hairspray so it would hold,
it was a sight to behold.
That made the look complete,
but it is why the ozone is deplete.
This photo reminded me of my Mom’s beehive hairstyle in the 1970’s. I loved it- I could spot her anywhere. She actually still goes to the hairdresser weekly, but not for a beehive.  🙂 I always tease her about hairspray depleting the ozone, although the kind they make now is completely useless so I doubt it is doing environmental harm.

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. ____________________ and ______________ go hand in hand.
 
2. _____________________ makes my heart happy.
 
3. Don’t be afraid to _________.
4. If _________ was a sport, I would win hands down.

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.I am thankful that many loved ones joined us Christmas Eve. I am also thankful that I got to spend Christmas Day with my mom and hubby -and kitties.

My kitties have lots of thankfuls today. Millie is thankful to the manly collar his friend Valentine sent him. It even has a bell.

Valentine also sent these yummy treats .

Our friends, Purrseidon and Katsu sent us this giant bag of toys which also included a tunnel. It arrived several weeks ago, but I was mean and made them wait.

And Four-Legged Furballs recently had a giveaway that we won. A beautiful blanket for me and a mini version for the kitties, although I the cats seem to think both are theirs. Lorianne also added in this giant container of Temptations and a stocking filled with toys. And one of her adorable bookmark creations.

Gremmie got a hat from Joanie.

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

I wonder who lives in this house?
It is way too big for just one mouse.
Maybe in it lives an old sage,
one thing for sure is it doesn’t belong to Nic Cage.
Sorry, not my best work. I am still tired from the holidays.

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. On New Year’s Eve, I __________________.
 
2. A goal that I have for 2019 is ________________.
 
3. If I had to choose a guide word for 2019, it would be _________.
4. New beginnings _________.

Poor Gremmie fell off his skateboard at recess and hurt his ear. We just can’t find a helmet big enough to cover those ears.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 121

Time for The Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section.

1. September is the perfect month for __________________.
 
2. This month, I am looking forward to __________________.

My answers:

  1. September is the perfect month for picking apples and making apple pie.
  2. This month, I am looking forward to cooler weather- I just know it is coming soon.
  3. My morning routine always includes coffee and kitty cuddles.
  4. I have a love-hate relationship with tuna. I know that is an odd answer, but it is true. Sometimes I love a tuna salad sandwich or tuna casserole and then all of a sudden it repulses me. That is the only fish I eat and it has to be solid white albacore.

Lyrical  # Challenge, Day One. Thank you Cathy ( Curious as a Cathy) for nominating me for this challenge. Here are the rules:

1 Thank the person who nominated you.
2 Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
3 Nominate three other bloggers each day.

Today is my niece’s 5th wedding anniversary. One of my favorite songs is I Loved Her First by Heartland ( written by Elliot Park and Walt Aldridge). She danced with her Father to this song and I cried. Actually, it is so beautiful I cry every time I hear it.

Look at the two of you dancing that way
Lost in the moment and each other’s face
So much in love, you’re alone in this place
Like there’s nobody else in the world
I was enough for her not long ago
I was her number one, she told me so
And she still means the world to me
Just so you know
So be careful when you hold my girl
Time changes everything, life must go on
And I’m not gonna stand in your way
I loved her first
I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it’s still hard to give her away
I loved her first
How could that beautiful woman with you
Be that same freckled face kid that I knew?
The one that I read all those fairy tales to
And tucked into bed all those nights
And I knew the first time I saw you with her
It was only a matter of time
I loved her first
I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it’s still hard to give her away
I loved her first
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
Someday you might know what I’m going through
When a miracle smiles up at you
Yeah, I loved her first
I am not good at following rules so I am not nominating 3 people. If you like music and want to join in the fun then consider yourself nominated.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.
Joanie is teaching Gremmie his ABC’s.
