We’re pretty well ready for Christmas. The shopping has been done. The stockings are hung by the fire with care. The railings are dressed up.
The Christmas Tree is a beauty even if there are hardly any ornaments on the bottom 1/4 of the tree.
I have a lot to be thankful for this year. A warm comfy home, good food, sisters and mom and dad. So my Thankful Thursday includes these wondrous things. is hosting Thankful Thursday so beam over to his placeBrian’s Homeand view your thankful friends.
What a cool place. Just think…..it’s mine now too.
The mail lady came today with a happy surprise for all of us. This lady snuck up onto our porch and rang the doorbell. I screamed. “introoder alert,” Then I hot pawed it under the bed. Tyebe looked at me as if I was nuts. She’ll learn one day.
It was a parcel for us from the Overlook Twins.
No, no, not those two. They’re girls. The Overlook Twins I’m thinking of are real he-men and they’re from France. You can see them on Easy Blog. Just call them Phenny and Neilson. These are the guys I’m referring to. Don’t they look like they could do serious harm? My kind of dudes.
Look at the stuff they sent us. Mom also got a package from the Overlook Twins mom. There is a Play and Bowl. It’s cool. I’s didn’t use the bowl but mom is going to put treats in it and see if mes can sniff them out. mol *hic*
Me’s fuzzy cause I’s so fast that no camera can catch me’s without going blurry. Shoko had to try the Play and Bowl too.
The velvet lips are just me size and mes planning on hauling them around the house.
It has been a fun playing day thanks to the Overlook Twins. Thanks doods.
I’m going to be an artistic devil today. Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty, is continuing with her artsy blog hop this week. Go have a peek at your anipals in odd artistic backgrounds. Have a few laughs to start your day.
SHOKO…..BLACK KALI…..ORANGE MOM…..RED VIOLET Kali decided she wanted to do Sunday Selfie so I get the fun artistic picture. Mom and I chose a picture mom took this morning while I was helping her make the bed. We do have chores. No free lunch in this abode.
Mom cropped the picture on Pizap.
The effect we liked best this week was the Shamrock cutout. It was on Lunapic.
St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17th and we are prepared.
Mom, are you and dad going somewhere for a vacation this year?We are Shoko. You’re going to leave us alone? No, of course not! Judy the petsitter is going to stay here while we’re away.Really? That will be so much nicer than being here alone with Kali. She works during the day doesn’t she? She does Shoko. Good….I mean we need some private time too. How long will you be gone?A little over two weeks Shoko. When I come back ‘ll have a few treats for you and Kali. Say that sounds cool!
May your mice be furry and your wet food nekked. Have a mellow Sunday my friends.
We got two parcels from the mail lady. Not one but two parcels. The first parcel was addressed to Kali and I. What the…? Mom pulled out this blue thing and then she said we’d won it. I remember, it was a contest on Three Chatty Cats. Mom didn’t take a picture of this Filtration System we had won. She couldn’t wait to see how it would work in our big water bowl out on the deck and if we’d try it out or sneak up on it.
I hung back, just in case there was something wrong with it. I’m not having my furs frazzled because of a short-circuit I heard Cow Kitty talkin’ bout his dad getting a shock from his electric razor. Kali was the first to try the new system. I give it the Kali stamp of approval. The little bubbles it produces tickle my nose.
Well, if Kali can do it without a problem then so can I. The water looks ok…..no sparks flying out. I see the ripples, this water looks so cool and refreshing. I can even stick my paws in and the ripples feel good. I like this blue thing.
Thank you so much Three Chatty Cats.
Our second parcel was from….the Tooth Fairy?? What the heck…the Tooth Fairy is alive and well and living in the US? I’ll be bald-headed!! I would never have guessed. Look at the toys…just for me. I got dibs on the ice cream cone Shoks. Oh, alright Kali but I get the drumstick. That little Blue sucker looks like fun to roll. MOLThis ice cream cone is so soft on my mouth.I have my drumstick in here and will beat it up….alone.
First I must thank the Tooth Fairy for the extra goodies. You are the best. *wink* *wink*
Here it is another Shopping Around the World hosted by Piglove and Fozziemum. This week we can make anything our little pea pickin’ hearts desire.
Kali stood up and said she wanted to be the celebrity chef from Fort Meezer, for this dish.
Hello my friends. My dish today will be Greek Potatoes
Let’s hear it for Greek Potatoes…..*smashes plate by throwing it at the wall.* “OPA!!” hehe Do you know where the Greek custom of smashing glasses and plates stems from? MOL…Stems…glasses…MOL Opa!! *smash*Me-wow
Greek tradition has it that this practice started when a rich family invited a much poorer family to dinner and to make them feel better invited them to break the plates. They were proving that friendship is everything. And there’s no better way of proving that than dining with friends over Greek food.
Without further Αντίο ( adieu in Greek) our main course for the day:
2 tablespoons & 2 teaspoons olive oil Terra Delyssay 750ml…..$7.99 3/4 cup water …free 1 clove garlic, finely chopped Elephant Garlic….$4.48 Lb. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice we use Real Lemon as it’s not as strong as the fresh lemon 950 ml $2.77 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme out of garden 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary out of garden 1 cube chicken bouillon 60 grams $2.99 3 old potatoes, peeled and quartered 0.87 LB. salt and pepper to taste
*Ingredients in orange *suggestions and prices in blue
1/ Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2/ in a small bowl, mix olive oil, water, garlic, lemon juice, thyme, rosemary, chicky bouillon cubes and pepper.
3/ Arrange potatoes evenly in the bottom of a medium baking dish. Pour the olive oil mixture over the potatoes. Cover and bake 11/2 to 2 hours in the preheated oven,., turning occasionally, until tender but firm. Before introducing the Greek Potatoes to the oven.
