Boxing Day 2020

It’s Boxing Day and artsy fartsy day.  Do you want me to get the boxing gloves out or shall we just find boxes Tyebe?  I really don’t feel like boxing with you Shoko so let’s find a comfy box and some greenies,

I like the new kitty we have in the house.  This kitty looks similar to me                                                           
She also hisses and sings “Your ornaments are his-story.”

 

Here  I am celebrating Boxing Day in my cozy box waiting for the treats to be rolled out.

Shoko is somewhere around here I believe she’s working on a Meezerism.  She’s scratching the fur on her chinny, chin, chin.                                              ” Do not judge all cats by the actions of a few.”

Mellowing out in my room with a view.


It is also Caturday Artsy Fartsy Day with Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty.                                                            

We haven’t been to visit Athena for like ages, Shoko.  She’ll never recognize us.  Yes, she will.  She’s a wise kitty and a real beauty too.

This is the first picture of us laying side by side.                                                       

Mom gave the picture to Lunapic and applied sparkles, beauty and a snow border. Voila….I am unrecognizable! mol

May your Boxing Day be filled with cardboard that tastes like shrimp.

Christmas Eve 2020

Today is Thankful Thursday at Brian’s Home and are we ever thankful for all the great things we have and are headed this way.  Please drop by Brian’s and let them know how you appreciate the life you have.                                                                                                                            
Well, this is it Tyebe.  No more time to shop or make anything.  Christmas Day is tomorrow.   I’m ready.

I see some treats, Shoko. The good kind too!! Wowee, this Christmas will be fun.

The mantel’s all set with all our stockings set out. I think I got the bug I wanted with wheels.  I think the motorized mouse is there too.

Mom even baked.

I heard dad say they were good too. Ya, one for mom!

Mom made a craft for 2020 too.  We helped of course.                                         

This is Tilly the toilet paper.  Symbol for the year 2020.

Have a wonderful Christmas friends. Enjoy your Christmas, It will be different but we can make it fun.

Do you think we’ll see the big guy this year Shoko?  We can examine some of the toys on his sleigh we made when we visited Santa’s Workshop just in case they’re not up to snuff.

 

We’re Back and Feeling Frisky

We’re back from Santa’s Workshop and we were busy.  We also had tons of fun.

 

We tested Teddy Bears for sturdiness. Tyebe used a baseball bat on one teddy’s bod to see if he could take the misuse of a kit like her.  Do you know that bear never lost a bit of stuffing.  Talk about sturdy!!
As you can see many of us Cat Scouts were there lending a paw.

After beating up stuffed animals Tyebe and I played hockey on Santa’s pond.


Then I had a race with Einstein, my boyfriend at Cat Scouts.

I won!! mol

We sent our Letter to Santa and will visit him tomorrow.                                     
We snuck in and visited with Santa before everyone started pouring in.

We are joining The Cat On My Head for their Sunday Selfie.                                                 

 

After our visit with Santa we were tuckered out and had our own room to mellow in.                                                               

Say goodnight Tyebe and let’s grab some shut in. Till Tomorrow friends. G’night all.

 

In Purrsuit of Flavours…..Colourful Cuisine

Today I plan to laze about sipping nip julips.  Not so Tyebe cause it’s time for In Purrsuit of Flavours  December’s theme is colourful cuisine,                                                      

We wanted to do something seasonal cause these holidays come around once a year.  So our co-sponsor Da Phenny and Neilson of Easy Blog suggested something colourful to throw out this flea bitten year. 

SHOKO…..BLACK
TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE

We are also joining Sandee in Comedy Plus for a wordy Wordless Wednesday. She always comes up with such lovely pictures that are both heart warming and happy.

So we decided to make our rendition of Spooky Shortbread Cookies.  We were right happy at Halloween with the Witches Fingers so let’s bring this relaxed attitude to the shortbreadFirst we had to escort mom to the basement to find the cookie cutters for the shortbread.  C’mon mom bring Spot and let’s play with him.  Mom and dad looked through the decorations for Christmas….all 5 boxes.  They figured the box marked “Kitchen” would hold the treasures….no friggin way.  The cookie cutters were found in the box marked *Advent Calendar.*                                                       

 

A fast round of Spot ensued and then Spot ran upstairs so we followed.

 Look at these cookie cutters, Tyebe.  We have the suits for a deck of cards.  How unchristmasy can one get?  Found some more Shoko.

 Well, our cookie cutters are showing our artsy style….ya, that’ll be why they’re so different.                                                                   

This is an easy shortbread recipe.  It’s not picky like some.  We just thought of it but we hope you can find the ingredients at your grocery store.  No toilet paper was involved so maybe you will find the goodies to make this.

INGREDIENTS

1 Cup butter, softened
1 Cup confectioner’s sugar ( we used icing sugar as that’s what mom had)
1 egg
1 tsp. almond extract
2 and 2/3 Cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp vanilla extract

*Optional…red/ green food colouring, nuts, raisins, craisins, eyeballs, red decorating gel

Not too many ingredients. Are you ready Tyebe….quit playing with the cookie cutters. They aren’t mice.

DIRECTIONS:
 Combine the butter, sugar, egg, almond extract and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl.

Beat together with an electric mixer; gradually add the flour, baking powder, and salt, continually beating; scrape the sides of the bowl and either make a ball of the dough or 3 balls like we did. We then added red food colouring to one, green to another and left one ball white.

Put your balls in the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes. This is an important step so don’t forget. You can wrap them in a plastic wrap or just leave them in the bowl.  We had balls galore,,,,,cold balls.                                                          

Bring your balls out of the fridge.  

 Preheat oven to 375F and spread out parchment paper on a cookie sheet. We used a cookie sheet and a half.    So cut that cookie sheet in half….mol Tyebe!

 Remove dough from fridge. Press the dough with rolling pin to about 1/2 inch thick…..maybe a tad more. Use your cookie cutters to make shapes.                                     

  Then apply some of your decorations on the cookies. BE CAREFUL!! The eyes need to go on after the baking is completed or they melt….we discovered this at Halloween.

  Bake in a 375F oven for 10 minutes.

Decorate to your heart’s content.  Now that you don’t have balls anymore, try using your nuts.

  • Finish decorating as soon as the cookies come out of the oven,  Then they will cool and suck up the decoration.

Adding Flavours to Monday

What did you say Tyebe?  I said you’re getting to be a stink in the mud.  You don’t go out and play.  You stink around the house and sleep or talk with mom.  You mean,,,STICK…in the mud?  No, I’m sure it’s *stink*.

Well what am I supposed to do?  Run out in the cold and sit in the snow till my butt’s freezing? That’s how you catch miceYes, but I don’t want a mouse.  They taste yucky and are here in the spring and summer. Do you like the taste, Tyebe? Well, yes.  They make my mouth water.  Really?

Wouldn’t you like some salmon insteadWow, salmon! Of course I would but I can’t catch a salmon in the Lane. I checked the puddles and there are NO fish to be seen.  Are you sure…..have you waited patiently for one to appear like you do mice?  NoNext time you’re bored outside look for a salmon. They’re hard to find but you could be one of the few lucky ones to find a fish in the puddles of the Lane.  Really! For sureI can’t wait to try it.  A fish awaits.

Shoko it’s time for a meezerism from you.  You should do one for us meezers and peeps.  You mean like Ann McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader.  Ann started SPARKs so peeps would have a positive idea to start their week. This SPARK is for both peeps and cats.

                                                                                                                         

“When you throw dirt, you lose ground.” This meezerism is shared by a Texan. Yes, they have meezeers in Texas.

SHOKO…..BLACK
TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE

We decided to do colourful cookies. Now just what kind we will show you on Wednesday.

Wordy Wednesday Purrsuing Flavours Theme for December

mol…..You’re kidding TyebeYou didn’t really grab mom’s undergarment and run out of the room?  I did!  You should have seen the look on her face. mol  It was priceless.  I’ll have this memory to keep a grin on my face for some time.                                                   

Where did you leave the underwear….I mean undergarment? In the kitchen. Dad thought it was very funny as mom sure hurried along after me to rescue her undergarment. It was kinda rude, Tyebe. I know but it was hilarious.

We are joining Sandee and Wordless Wednesday at Comedy Plus. Pop over and see your friends trying to be wordless.  How many will actually say nothing?  We all  seem to have trouble closing our mouths.

SHOKO…..BLACK
TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE

You know Tyebe, I was talkin’ with Da Phenny  Of Easy Blogour co-sponsor of In Purrsuit of Flavours, earlier on SKYPE and he suggested that December’s In Purrsuit of Flavours should have something to do with the holiday season. I can see that Shoko. It was a stinky year so how about something colourful to end the season. That’s exactly how Da Phenny and Nellie described the year. So we can send the year away with brightness in our hearts and hope in our minds.


So on the 2nd. of December we want a colourful food or drink for the festive season to say “So long yucky 2020.” Any food you want is welcomed….just lotsa colour. We’ll call it Colourful Cuisine.


We’ll remind you on Monday of the colourful cuisine and tell you what we’re going to make.


Sunday Selfie while Cleaning.

Wow, the Sunday Selfies are here again. So we are clambering over to The Cat On My Head’s blog to see what they have to say and then one of us will be chosen to pose for the Selfie on their blog.  The Cat On My Head has had some problems earlier so we’ll wait to see if we can hook up later.                                                                                                                                         

We couldn’t decide who would do a selfie so we both did one each.

                                                                   

First up is Tyebe in the basket having a bath.

Here I am in the basket having a bath.                                                     

             Do you get the idea maybe it’s sticky in the basket and we must clean up after stepping in it?  mol

Have a happy Sunday.

 

                                                                                                                                  

Feline Friday is Fill In Day at Fort Meezer

 

Don’t look at me, Tyebe!  Why not?  You got that weird sparkle in your eyes. *Shoko hits Tyebe on the head* Like you’re going to chase me Who me?  I wouldn’t do that.  I’m just wondering how you managed to stay so young looking over the years.  Gimme a break Tyebe, you don’t think about stuff like that.                                                    

Let’s get busy with the Fun Fill In’s from the sponsors Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Lorianne of Four- Legged Fur Balls.                                                     

 

SHOKO…..BLACK
TYEBE…..ROYAL BLUE

1. MOM WEARING A MASK…. is funny.  SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE’S GOING TO ROB A BANK. MOL

                                                               

2. I’ve written a fan letter to…..SANTA CLAUS.  I DON’T MEAN A LIST OF THINGS I WANT, A GENUINE FAN LETTER.  LETTING HIM KNOW WHY I THINK HE’S SO GREAT AND WHERE TO LOOK FOR GOODIES AT OUR PLACE.

                                                                 

3. FINDING MOM …. is easier than it looks.  WE CAN USUALLY SNIFF HER OUT.

                                                             

HI mom….YOU SMELL GOOD TODAY……NOT THAT YOU DON’T NORMAL SMELL NICE BUT YOUR AROMA IS EXTRA STRONG TODAY  .  Hmm….NO, YOU DON’T STINK.  YOU SMELL LIKE THE FLOWERS IN SPRING.  NO, I DON’T WANT ANYTHING EITHER.  I WAS JUST TRYING TO BE NICE,  SHEESH…..I REALLY DON’T LIKE THIS SENTENCE AT ALL.

4.WALKING IN THE SNOW… is harder than it looks.

                                                       

MOM DOESN’T HAVE ONE PICTURE OF ME WALKING IN SNOW. …..I’M NOT STUPID. ANY WALKING THROUGH THE SNOW IS DONE VERY QUICKLY SO MOM CAN’T GRAB THE CAMERA.

Tyebe, I feel a meezerism coming on. GULP…                             

“A wise cat never lets anyone see her watching over the bacon.”

 

We are also joining Sandee and Comedy Plus for Feline Friday.                                                             

Tyebe, let’s call a truce and play fight.  Sounds good sis.  Are you ready you wimp.                                                        

Who you calling a wimp….you raunchy ringtail?

 

Tyebe Tuesday with Shoko

 

We are joining Comedy Plus and Happy Tuesday for a jolly  golly day,                                                       

I don’t want to go out and look for a snow cat with you, Tyebe.  They don’t just appear you know, Tybs.                                                                     

 

You have to make one.  No, Budd told me a snow cat appears on days that are dark and snowy.  I just have to look hardI think he was pulling your paw, Tyebe.                                                             Budd wouldn’t do that!  Did we know the same guy or what?  Budd loved a good joke at someone else’s expense….then he’d chuckle to himself for most of the rest of the dayNOOOOO!  You saw him Tyebe.  He was always smiling like he knew something  that no one else knew.                                                                           

Didn’t he look like he just pulled one over on some unsuspecting kitty? Well, now that you mention it he did. Lucky we kept these pictures of Budd.

Snow cats usually appear or are made in February when there is lots of snow and it is dark and gloomy at that time of year I still think they appear like Budd said.  OK, come this February we’ll look for snow cats.  You got a deal Shoko.

The girls shake paws on it.
