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 _________.

 

Penny’s Tips Volume 31

Hi everyone! I have the perfect tip for you just in time for your holiday entertaining.

Hey Millie, smell this!

Smells like rotten eggs.

Sometimes wine may still taste good, but have a sulfur (rotten egg) smell. If you still want to drink it, just wash a penny and toss it in the glass. The penny needs to be from before 1982 though because they are copper. The copper does something that makes the smell go away. Sorry, I can’t explain the chemistry part, I am just a cat ,an adorable one though.

Dad let me borrow a bottle of his homemade wine for this photo shoot, but I can assure you his wine would never smell bad. And I am not drinking any, Mom put my treats in here.

I probably won’t get another turn on the blog before Christmas so I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas!

Penny’s Tips Volume 28

Hi everyone! I have a great tip today just in time for your holiday baking.

You can use pennies as pie weights. My mom just learned what that is….every time she makes a crust for the chocolate cream pie, it has bubbles on the bottom. I hope she tries this.

 Sorry, I insist she give me my treats in advance.

You just put the pie crust in the bottom ( use your imagination, I didn’t have a crust for the photo).

Then you put parchment paper or aluminum foil over it and line it with pennies, then bake as usual. They will hold it down so it won’t bubble. I recommend washing the pennies first even though there is a layer protecting the crust.

Penny’s Tips Volume 22

Hi everyone! Can you believe I get to post 3 whole  weeks in a row? I hope I don’t run out of tips.

This is a fun game for all ages. See who can stack the most pennies before they tip over.

Mom and Dad tried it, Mom won with 62 pennies. Can anyone top that?

And for kitties, a fun game is to try to walk past the tower of pennies without knocking them over. Millie is good at that ( see them by his back feet).

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade. We also want to wish Athena’s mum a very Happy Birthday today!

I used Lunapic to cartoonize the photo of Penny and Millie in their boxes. I wanted a thought bubble over Penny’s Head, but this is the best I could do.

This poem is for  Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo.

A long time ago, in my younger years
I enjoyed going to the drive-in with my peers.
Watching movies like The Breakfast Club
and eating lots of  greasy grub.
Now I prefer to be inside
I can do without a joyride.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
1. When it is hot, I _____________________.

3. The theme song of my life would be _________.
