Caturday Artsy, Fartsy Gimme Your Heartsy Art by Shoko

It was a snowy day in Siberia…what?  We don’t live in Siberia. well you could’ve fooled me.  It just keeps snowing.  For the love of nip, speaking of which…..where the heck is it.  There must be tons of snow on it.  It will be well protected from the cold weather.

I snuck out with mom to enjoy the air.  We went out onto the deck which was clear.  Mom shoveled the stairs and I whipped down them and discovered snow falling on me so went back on the deck with a quick turnabout.                                        I have a snow face!

Mom decided to use my picture for Athena’s Artsy Caturday.                                                             

To see all the others with their art pictures go to Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s blog Simply click on her name and be swept off your paws.

Now for moi.                                                  
Mom went to Lunapic and chose the Mosaic effect from the famous artworks section of art.
Have a super Caturday friends.

Friday’s Funky Fill-Ins

Time for the funky fill-ins from us.  The co-hosts of Friday Fun Fill-Ins, Annie from McGuffy’s Reader and Ellen from 15 and Meowing give us the sentences and we fill in the missing words.                                                        

I will take the first two sentences and Kali will attack the last two sentences.

1. I have never been able to….CLIMB A TREE…..I KNOW THAT EVERYONE THINKS IT’S MY CHOICE BUT CLIMBING A TREE SCARES THE CWAP OUTTA  ME.  I LOVE THIS PICTURE….lOOKING AT THE TREES IS AWESOME……..THE IDEA OF CLIMBING THEM GIVES ME THE SHIVERS.                                                        

2. I wish I could still …..SQUEEZE THROUGH THE RAILS ON THE DECK WITHOUT THE RAILS TOUCHING ME.  THEN I COULD TAKE A SHORTCUT TO THE NIP.                                                

Take it away sisteh ghostie.

3.  SNUGGLING ON MY PURPLE FURRY ON MOM’S BED….. is my ideal winter night.                                                           4. TREATS…..and…..CARRYING OUT MY BEAUTY TREATMENTS MAKE ME HAPPY.                                                    

Have a fun weekend friends.

Blogger Recognition Award…Thank you DeziWorld!

Oh! Shoko’s going to be upset she missed this one.  She loves awards and thinks they’re hers…just hers.  Well, this award is for all of us…even mom.

Dezi and Raena from Deziworld gave us this awesome award and we thank you very much for your thoughtfulness.                                                      

Isn’t the wreath lovely!  Wish I could wear it like my Lei.                                                   We started blogging back in the fall of 2014.  Shoko had started in Cat Scouts and was having a great time with her new-found buddies.  Mom was reading blogs to us one day and she muttered out loud that we could do a blog too.  Well, it wasn’t as easy as mom thought but dad helped establish her with the blog  Then she was afraid to use it.  What if nobody ever came to see her posts? How embarrassing.  She threw caution to the wind and actually published a post.  Then she wasn’t sure if she should look and see if anyone stopped by.  One day she broke down and looked.  She was in seventh heaven, three peeps had looked at her post.  Woo hoo…the big time!  Mom didn’t blog again for three months.  She didn’t think she could do as well.

KALI…..ORANGE
MOM…..RED VIOLET

The best suggestion I have for beginners is to focus on something you never seem to tire of.  If you do this then the posts will never be a chore but fun and part of your personality and also enjoyable for others to read.

The next suggestion I have is to do and say what YOU want to say not what others think you should talk about.  It is your blog to do your thing not be another voice for someone else or their cause.  Be true to you.

Our final step is to choose 15 bloggers we think deserve this award.  Well, there are so many more than 15 bloggers that deserve this award that I will only choose 3 to name and the others are more than welcome to grab the badge and call it their own.  You all have worked to develop the blog and then spent many hours honing the skills needed to develop interesting posts.  In our eyes, you’re all winners!

  

2/  TWOCATSVIEWS:  Life as seen by Hemingway and Steinbeck.
These two little terrors are cats and we view life from their perspective which can be both humorous and touching. Stop by and give them a peek.  Say Kali sent you and maybe some nip will show up.

3/ Hairballs and Hissyfits   is a cat blog which tells the cat’s activities from their own eyes.  A cheerful and happy blog.  Do take a peek at these charming kitties.

There you have it, friends.

See ya when Shoko returns with her Cat Scout stories.

  We’ll use these poles for playing *limbo* or *how low can you go* after we’re finished with the garden.

Dad did a great job with the rototiller.  I wish Nellie was here…she knows her stuff.

Beautiful, we need to make rows, mom.

We need to start here…who’s that?  It  looks like Nellie from Nellie On The Edge  Nellie?  Nellie….is that you?                                                                                “Hi Shoko! Mes comed to helps yous with planting the garden from over the bridge! Yous know the best thing about going there? Mes can bes the real mes! Mes can now looks like the Cat From Hell!! Mes always wanted to has horns and a devils tail and when mes gotted there…mes had them! Is they not the coolest!?!?”  Wow…maybe I’ll get a tail and horns when I join you, Nellie.

Hey, Shoks mes want to fertilize the seeds your moms planted.  I can’t pee on command like you Nellie….I’m still earthly.  Give me a few minutes.

Kali, you wanna snuggle while I’s waitin’ for Shoks to lubricate her plumbing.  I always want to snuggle with you Nellie.  Let’s get comfortable in the house.

 Nellie!  Your horns and tail disappeared…what happened?                                                                           When I feels especially warm and happy they disappear.  So I can be whats I feel like being…a devil or angel.  Cool Nellie…what a trick.  You’re still a little squirt though. Ya but I’s pack quite a lot of fun into mes little self.  MOL

Happy Birthday Kali…..How many candles?

It’s my 15th birthday today.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE
BUDDY…..GREEN

 

Dad gave me a manicure and pedicure yesterday and I painted my nails for my birthday.  I look so glamorous!  Wait till Buddy Budd sees me…he’ll flip.                                                             I love these and with my crown I’ll be the belle of my birthday party.  This colour is called Panther Pink.

Shoko is mom making anything special? I think so…she’s making fishcakes…with lots of fish and hardly any potatoes.  So it should be fish hash in minutes.  She found some salmon and is making salmon puffs too.  I never heard of those but they look yummy. MOL                                                                                                                                 Mom put my bobble crown on me but I was not amused!  It felt strange on my wee ears.

Don’t look at me, my crown’s crooked!

This picture is the best mom could get of me.

Shoko went out to try and find some fresh nip but there is nothing in the garden.  No nip is up yet.                                                                                  

Oh mom!!  You shouldn’t have….thank you so much.  My favourite!                                                  Look Shoko, it’s Greek Oregano!  Ompa!!

Another surprise!                                                                     Oh my…look Shoko, Einey and Buddy from Timmy’s Commentary.  My buddy! ‘sigh’  What are you looking for Buddy Budd.  Some oregano….I can smell itI have a bunch over here…come my man.

What a fun day.  Hope you had fun visiting.  Kali is asleep with her head beside Buddy’s.  shhh…let them sleep                                                              

 

 

 

Shopping Around The World…March Edition

This month Phenny from Easy Blog  is offering Shopping Around The World for Bacon of Piglove blog.  Aside from putting down the prices we are suppose to make up a delicious sweet and tasty dessert.                                                                       

We decided to do one of our more challenging pies with our friends. We are not a dessert family unless we buy it. Then look out we can gobble down sweets like your average turkey.  Our pie is Key Lime Pie and it is delicious.

All items purchased at The Real Canadian Superstore.

You will need a graham cracker pie crust.

A 9 inch graham cracker pie crust is $3.48                                                                                

A box of Key Lime Pudding

A 25 gram box  $3.97                                                                               

Two eggs

a dozen large eggs $2.25 so 2 eggs will be $0.40                                                                

Can of Whipping Cream…light  hehe

225 grams $3.52                                                                                 

There….you are armed and dangerous.  I’m just supervising mom to see how she messes up. MOL

INSTRUCTIONS:

1/ First we take the pie shell and brush the two egg whites that have been whisked together on the inside of the crust.   Then put the crust into a preheated oven at 350F for five minutes

.

2/  Take the Key Lime pudding and mix according to the recipe.  You will be using your left over yolks here.  Follow the recipe on the package of pudding.  After making the pudding wait for a few minutes to see if it is thickening.

3/  Meanwhile your pie crust is ready and you should cool it off while your pudding is thickening.

4/  Pour your key lime pudding into the graham cracker pie crust when both are cool.                                                                                
5/ Refrigerate the pie and filling for 2 hours.                                                                     Ta Da…done.  Enjoy!

A nice decoration on the Key Lime Pie is a sprig of nip or a small duck that quacks out the virtues of sweets.

May your pie not have a fur coat but
if it does braid the fur and chow down.
