My First Selfie In The Lane

C’mon mom, let’s go for our walk.  It’s not as windy.                                                       
SHOKO…..BLACK
MOM……MAROON

This is what’s left of our snow.                                                    
Compared to the snow from a little over a month ago.

Um…I’ll be busy for awhile mom. This newspaper is very aromatic and ready for the sniffing.

Juno’s been out here. The nosy little tinkle head. Smudge is still here, good for him. He must’ve got a good vet report and that rash must’ve disappeared. I really must invite him over for some nip and a spot of cool water.   Be there in a few minutes mom!                                            
Buds are just starting to form on this wee tree. I’ll take a picture in 2 weeks and see how far it’s come along.

I’m headed to the nip Shoks.  Be right there, mom.


Look at those juicy sprouts of nip. Some little tinkle head next door has been getting it all dirty. Geez!

It’s also Sunday Selfie time at The Cat On My Head.                                                      Jump on over and participate with us or just have a peek at your buddies.  Hit the highlighted blog hop’s name and you’re there!                                              

How’s this for a quickie….selfie. I made it while walking. No moss growing under my paws!

Spring into Monday, my friends.

I Spy With My Little Eye…

I was just sittin’ on the deck.  The part without snow.  The sun was warm on my side.  I spotted some hooligan trying to get at my nip and said a silent curse under my breath.  Apparently, mom heard my silent curse so I wasn’t as silent as I thought.  She came runnin’ out, slipped and hobbled back into the house.  No words, or nothin’!  Next, I saw the introoder leaving the nip patch…the nip hasn’t grown enough to raid. mol  Get outta here you sucker!                                                        

Yep, it was snowing again but not much.  I spied a feathered fiend on my steps.  He was not completely black and I was at a loss….what is this thing?                                                      

Enjoy your day my friends.

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.

SHOKO….BLACK
EINSTEIN…..GREEN                                                    

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.

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

Beautiful, we need to make rows, mom.

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.
