It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday What are YOU Reading?

All my older cats that are not doing well have been making me sad as well as turning the big 50 recently.  As you can see, I am looking to books for happiness. I just finished Resisting Happiness by Matthew Kelly.  I also have The Happiness Equation by Neil Pasricha, Happy for No Reason by Marci Shimoff and The Happiness Hypothesis by Jonathan Haidt. I haven’t started any of those yet.

I recently won Happy Money: Understand and Heal Your Relationship with Money by Ken Honda, I wrote a review for it on Goodreads. I thought it was a good book. I like the idea of having happy money. The author recommends we be happy when spending money instead of complaining about it. We will attract more that way. I am going to start adding a smiley face in the memo of checks I write. 🙂 That is my idea, not his.

Penny will be here tomorrow with one of her tips. I think she is mad about being bumped the past 2 Tuesdays. She left a plastic eyeball in my shoe- do you think that she was sending me a message?

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! We want to wish a Happy 7th Blogoversary to the hosts  of The Sunday Selfies- The Kitties Blue!

I want to thank you all again for the purrs and prayers for Noel. I will let you know as soon as those results come back.

Here are our selfies- the cats on catnip edition.

SammyEmmyTrouble running from it- she is repulsed by the smell of it. Brody doesn’t like it either.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Before we get started, we want to give POTP to Sawyer of The Kitties Blue. Teddy’s mom made this nice badge for him. He needs a lot of purrs and prayers as he has seizures quite often and meds don’t seem to prevent them.

Rene (It’s All About the Cats) told me about a new book, Bailey No Ordinary Cat by Erin Merryn.  I am so glad she did. It is a small book filled with photos of the author and her 3 little girls with Bailey. I always think Joanie is so good with The Great One and she is, but Bailey was even more patient. In one photo he is being fed with a spoon while sitting in a high chair. You can check out a lot of his photos on his Instagram page, click here.  Even my hubby enjoyed the photos and was amazed at Bailey’s patience. Sadly, Bailey passed away a few months before the book came out, but he can live on through these adorable photos. I am sure each one will make you say awwww…..

This is a different Bailey than Bailey the Boat Cat, he also has a book.

 

 

Thankful Thursday

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

Sammy and I are thankful that we got to meet his girlfriend’s mother. Sammy’s girlfriend is Cat Scout Maggie and her mom was in Massachusetts so she stayed overnight. She is very nice. Sammy got lots of hugs and smoochies from her.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

Such a cute baby
arms open wide just like mom
time to waddle now

Thankful Thursday

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

Sammy is thankful to be coneless. And I am thankful that his biopsy came back and his nose is fine. It was called an unspecified inflammation ( probably from too many whaps from the other kitties).

I am also thankful that I got accepted into The Cat Writers’ Association. Special thanks toLola and Lexy’s mom, Dawn for sponsoring me.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

I wonder who lives here?
I am sure it is no one to fear.
Maybe it is the Grinch’s summer home
or maybe it belongs to a gnome.
I know it is not mine
and with that, I am fine.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. I could use some suggestions for _________________________.
 

2. I never refuse _________________.

 
3. I hope _________ never changes.
4. I would rate _________ a 10 out of 10.

Caturday Saturday

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

More art from The Great One. I helped with the 2 shark ones because she doesn’t like sharks, all the rest are hers. They were wooden ornaments, but I changed them to key rings to give to her Dad and grandpas for Father’s Day. She decided to keep a mermaid for herself 🙂

Sammy thanks you all for the POTP.

My answers:
1. I hope Barnes and Noble never goes out of business. I don’t spend a lot of money there, but I love to walk through and write a list of books to get from the library.
2. So far, the highlight of my year has been seeing my great-niece tapping away in her first dance recital. Seeing I Am Not A Skunk get published is right up there too.
3. Cleaning takes up too much time. It needs to get done though.
4. If I didn’t have to sleep, I would spend that extra time reading. So many books , so little time. I have over 800 books on my Goodreads to -read list.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.
  Thank you for the purrs and prayers for Sammy. His dental went well, but he lost a fang and a few smaller teeth. I kept the fang. He has one stitch on his nose from the biopsy. We will have the results next week so please keep purring and praying.

Thankful Thursday

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

I am thankful KaTwo is still doing well since her dire diagnosis last September ( knock on wood- 3 times)..

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

Let us survey
how can we torture mom today?
Once she puts on a clean shirt,
your breakfast you can start to spurt.
When she puts us down for a nap,
it will be a fine time for a crap.
And if she talks to anyone on her cell
we must be sure to yell and yell.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. I hope _________________________ never goes out of business.
 
2. So far, the highlight of my year has been__________________.
 


3. _________ takes up too much time.
4. If I didn’t have to sleep, I would spend that extra time _________.
 
One more thing- Today is Sammy’s big day to get some teeth removed and a nose biopsy. All purrs and prayers are appreciated. Thank you.
