And for Awww…. Monday, I hope my friend Pam ( Teddy of One Spoiled Cat’s Mom) and I are Awww…worthy. We met in Maine last week for the 3rd year in a row- and I hope we continue this tradition for many more years to come.
I am going to be turning the big 5-0 this month and I have been dreading it, but this new song ( well, it is about 4 months old) makes me feel better about it .Rob Thomas is my favorite singer ( other than Sinatra).
I love the line, ” I’m not afraid of getting older. I’m one less day from dying young. ”
And Brody hopes he is Awww….worthy.

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-
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.
This week, I have some of my favorite singers and their Christmas songs. One is not famous, but she sure should be. If you follow Dezi’s World, you already know their mom has an amazing voice. If not, here is her version of Silent Night.
Next up is Frank Sinatra- I’ll Be Home for Christmas
Rob Thomas- New York Christmas
Amy Grant- Grown Up Christmas List-
Joanie traded in her tutu for a nurse uniform. Hubby and I both have colds thanks to The Great One. I gave her some honey cold medicine the other day and she said she liked it because it is bee flavored 🙂 Kids say the cutest things.
Being that it is Halloween time, I am going to try to read a vampire novel. I have been afraid on vampires since I was a kid and my aunt let me watch Salem’s Lot. I slept with my neck covered until about two years ago ( when the hot flashes started). My friend and fellow blogger, Marie (Athena’s Mum) has written a trilogy of vampire stories. I have enjoyed all her cat themed books so I am sure these will be good too. If you are interested, you can get the kindle edition of Poet’s Blood for free right now. Click here.
The Mewsic theme for this week is songs with hand claps and finger snaps. I couldn’t think of any with the finger snaps, but I have 3 with hand claps.
Take the Money and Run ( Steve Miller Band)-
2. More Than A Feeling ( Boston)-
And because I spend a lot of time with an almost 3 year old:
3. Sesame Street If Your Happy and You Know it Clap Your Hands-
And here are Brody and Trouble. I am so happy that Brody has a friend, she even cleans his ears for him sometimes.
