Today’s is Brian’s Thankful Thursday and we thought we’d join in as we are very Thankful today. Today has been one of those days and we’re having a fair number of them…..sleep is the first thing that enters our minds. It’s cold and yucky out.
The snow is coming down so fast and thick. Brrr..
Kali and I have moved into the bedroom for some shut-eye and dreaming.
Remember to always keep one eye open…..zombies are everywhere.
Kali decided to have the pillow house as it is just that extra bit warmer.
We are so thankful we are inside a nice warm house on a day like today. MOL….looks familiar!
Another Friday rolls around and the week is almost over. The snow is melting in spite of -20C temperatures. The sun blazing down seems to warm everything up…including Cow Kitty. hehe SHOKO…..BLACK
Ellen from 15 and Meowing blog and Annie from McGuffy’s Reader have given us the four fill-ins for the day. Click on the blog hosts name and go visit them….say hi for us. I go first this time Shoko.
1. My favorite herb or spice is ……OREGANO. HOW COULD ANYBODY NOT LIKE OREGANO, IT MAKES ONE FEEL LIGHT AS A FEATHER AND JUST A WEE BIT GIDDY.2. An herb/spice I dislike is …..DILL. IT SMELLS ODD, IN FACT IT STINKS. NO PROBLEM MOM I WON’T TOUCH YOUR DILL. LET’S PUT IT THIS WAY, I’LL EAT DILL WHEN YOU EAT VALERIAN ROOT. 3.Lately, I have been working on …..MY STALKING TECHNIQUE. I HEARD THERE ARE LAWS AGAINST STALKING THESE DAYS…..YOU COULD GO TO JAIL. ARE YOU JIVIN’ ME SHOKO? GEESH I’M STARTING TO SOUND LIKE YOU FOR HEAVENS SAKE.4.This Winter was …..DIFFERENT. A FEW DAYS ARE COLD AS STINK, WHERE I AM SHIVERING IN MY FURS LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO CUDDLE. THEN THE NEXT FEW DAYS ARE MILD. SO NOBODY GETS CLIMATIZED AND WE ALL KEEP FEELING VERY COLD.
Have a great weekend and go with the flow.
Mom is starting to make me breathe the Feliway Diffuser air starting tomorrow. Let’s see if I become calm and relaxed.
Piglove and Fozziemum are having Shopping Around The World today. Thank you ladies for another intriguing idea.
Well, cwap I say. This month’s Shopping Around the World snuck up on us. We are just getting used to playing with some new toys and wham, Phenny’s mom reminded us it’s Shopping Around the World time. Son of a paper tiger! So here we sit….unprepared as mom and dad have eaten most of their turkey dinner and fixin’s. Shall we tell you that Cow Kitty ran away with all mom and dad’s food or the Elf on the Shelf buried our food under a snow bank. No, none of this happened. So this recipe does not involve Christmas dinner but an appetizer for any time. This is homemade Cocktail Sauce for those special occasions when you’re serving shellfish. You will need ketchup, lemon juice and horseradish. Ketchup..French’s 750 ml….$3.99 (Our ketchup is still Heinz so it’s old…they don’t make Heinz ketchup up here in Canada anymore.)
Real Lemon… Lemon Juice….. 150 ml. $1.50
Woodman’s Horseradish…..250 ml……$3.99
You will use just a bit of each. Most peeps have these items on hand,
Put 3 tbsp of ketchup into a small dish, Add 1 tbsp and 1 tsp of horseradish and 1 tsp of lemon juice. Stir and taste. If, you want more zip in your sauce add a small amount of horseradish and taste. Grab a prawn and dress it up with some cocktail sauce.
1.The highlight of my Christmas was…..NEED YOU ASK? IT WAS DA BIRD FROM EINSTEIN.2 .My New Year’s resolution is …..TO REFRAIN FROM TRYING TO BITE KALI’S BUTT. MOM’S RIGHT IT’S KINDA RUDE, EVEN IF KALI ISN’T LISTENING TO ME AND SHE DOES WHEN I TRY AND BITE HER BITE BUT THEN SHE FINKS ON ME.
Get away from me, you, you butt biter!
3.This year, 2016,…..HAS BEEN A VERY HARD YEAR FOR BLOGVILLE. WE HAVE LOST SEVERAL BELOVED FRIENDS. WE WILL BE HAPPY TO SEE THE END OF 2016.
4 Next year, 2017,…..I’M PREDICTING A HAPPIER YEAR IN BLOGVILLE AND MANY A STROLL IN OUR STROLLER.
WE HELPED MOM CHOOSE THE BEST DELI MEAT. ROAST CHICKEN FOR US AND BLACK FOREST HAM FOR MOM AND DAD.
May you go to heaven for the climate and hell for the company.
C’mon Kali, let’s blow this joint. Why? It’s nice and cozy in here. We need the fresh air blowing in our furs. The wind is terrible. I want to be warm. Ok, so it’s cold. How cold is it, Shoko? It’s so cold the snowman has rosy cheeks!
Do you remember the time mom was out shovelling off the deck and then came in to have a hot bath?
Boy, do I ever. MOL The hot water on her cold butt was not relaxing….she said it was so painful and she was fussing about. MOL. She learned to get herself a little wet with warm water before leaping into a hot tub. Experience is a great teacher.
You’re too young to remember mom with the old Taurus but she had trouble plugging the car in so dad got her a light that would turn on when the car was plugged in. You mean sorta like a plug-in for idiots? MOL…exactly.
Ohhh, what about the time Cow Kitty’s dad left his truck on the street and the snow plough came along and blocked him in. The snow was deep that year. It was so funny watching him dig his car out,,,he used words we can’t say…..at least when mom’s looking. MOL
C’mon sis let’s get some air….ok, lead on Shoko.
I’m going into a nice warm heat register. It’s too cold for me. Leave me some room on that warm heat register….I’ll just *sniff*, *sniff* this patch of dirt. Make room for moi….coming through. Much better….I feel like a princess again instead of a pioneer braving the elements. Not that again, Kali. Go to sleep.
What’s worse than snowing cats and dogs?
A: Hailing taxi cabs!
Seems like winter was waiting for us this Friday and snow-covered everything and stayed that way. It’s also time for our artsy photo. So mom used my picture in pho.to editor once again. I like it and feel this is how I should be treated instead of just giving me the odd treat….instead get all excited when I’m in the room. MOL Aren’t Athena’s eyes the prettiest green you’ve ever seen.
Today is our fun Artsy Caturday with our hosts Athena and Marie. Click on their name and visit more anipals posing just for you. Shoko quietly…ahem,not so quietly, bowed out of Artsy Caturday cause she felt mom gave her the photo effects that made her look dreadful. So Shoks has taken her grievance to a new level and is on strike over mom’s attempts at being an artist.
So, I will be your model until Shoko has finished being a drama queen over her perceived slight.
Mom used different photo editors until she was all mixed up and didn’t know which one she was using. She did have some fun with a collage. Notice the collage has snow in it.
Have a great weekend and remember to share some nip with a friend.
