Selfie Sunday with Kali

Today is Sunday and you know what that means?  No, we don’t get more treats on Sunday, Shoko.  Geesh, good try though.  It’s Selfie Sunday and this Sunday I will be the model.

As you know every week The Cat On My Head hosts this awesome blog hop.  Click on the host’s name and visit the lineup.

Now without further adieu, I present… me:
I was feeling especially royal today so I thought I’d complete the picture.  I dove into my Princess bed and slept like only royalty can sleep. mol

Have a peaceful Sunday and act like royalty.  Pretty soon you’ll feel that way.

Sunday Happenings

 

Hey, this Saturday is so warm!  The weatherman says +6C….toasty.                                             

My spidey senses tell me there is another pair of paws wandering around the house. Could it be, yes it’s gotta be the white tornado!

It’s not me Shoks…I’m grabbing a few winks before you get in my face again. I don’t get in your face! I strategically place myself in a position where you can’t miss seeing me. Like I said…in my face. Whatever!

Wonder what this racket could be.  It seems to be coming from the bedroom.  As any good guard cat, I must uncover this mystery.                                            

Oh no, we had forgotten bout Elfin John!  Go away and leave me alone.  You bugged me til Crisp Mouse last year.  I’m taking a nap in my pillow tent.                                                 

No, no….I meant ALONE!  I don’t want to sleep with you.                                                 

Geez, you don’t have to bow to me…I would never hurt you little Elfin. You seem like one of the good Christmas elves.

I’m flyin! hehe,  I’m free.

I

I caught a fish for Shoko. She’ll be so impressed.  For me?  Thanks, Elfin J.

How bout if you do the Sunday Selfie with me, Elfin John?  You like that idea.  First, we must thank The Cat On My Head for holding this blog hop for so long.  Furries….please drop by and visit us in our slot on the blog hop.  Simply click on the blog hop name and *poof* you’re there.                                                      

*Click* Ya, you got us Elfin J but its kinda obvious you took the picture….next time look as if you are doing nothing.

 

Have a great day, friends.                                              

 

Caturday Artsy Day with an Old Tart

I’m not a tart Shoko!!  I’m a pristine lady.  You mean, * a lady of the evening.*  No….not anymore….I don’t make it much past 8pm.  Then it’s time for the TV and a snooze.                                               It is time for Athena’s Caturday art and I am going to use Lunapic but something just a little different.                                                  Go see Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty and see what kind of expressions are on the faces of your friends as they pose for you.

Mom did the Landscape Art and then for effect she put me in a Photo Booth and finally she put a border on the picture.                                                     All I can say is….you gave me a blue beard!  MOL…well, it’s Miss Bluebeard herself….Matey, you are a sight for sore eyes.

Have a great Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend and for those of you not in Canada…it’s turkey time here…..care to visit?                                                 

Gathering Cuttings on Artsy Caturday

SHOKO…..BLACK

Hey dad’s coming for a stroll with us.  How nice.                                            Nice day not too hot and it doesn’t stink of smoke.

Where are we going?  To Gateway Seniors Facility….you mean we can get in and visit with the peeps now?  NO!  Cwap!!  What are we doing then?  You want some wild roses?  I don’t get it.  Oh, I see, we’re going to take some cuttings at Gateway.

Can we get in trouble BORROWING a few cuttings….not if no one sees us?  I get it…no one back here mom,  Not a soul on my right.

Ok, let’s move it dad…you got the pruning shears?  Good. let’s get the cuttings and get outta here.

                                                                            We’re hiding…got them?  Let’s flee.

 MOL…we got the cuttings and nobody nabbed us.                                                       They sure are prickly little buggers.

                                                                     I’ll keep a look out and make sure nobody followed us.

                                                                          Mom, um, mom you’re going to want to see this…like quick.

   Oh, oh now we’ve done it!                                                                           Cheez it da cops!

It’s also Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Artsy Caturday.                                                              Go visit her blog and have a jolly good laugh at your friends. MOL

Here’s our offering this week.                                                         Mom used Lunapic and Escher Art.

 

Have a great weekend friends.

 

Now, For Something a Little More Familiar

KALI…..ORANGE
NELLIE…..GREEN
SHOKO…..BLACK

Mom and dad checked the hotel room  a few times to make sure they didn’t leave anything behind.  Then it was off to Heathrow Airport.  Peeps had told mom it was a very hard airport to get through as it was huge.  It was very large but staff at the airport helped mom, so going through security was much easier.  They were even early for the plane so looked at various shops.                                                               Heathrow is very large with much walking.

The plane ride to Vancouver was very similar to the plane ride to Paris.  So I won’t bore you  with details.  When mom saw the sands of the beach near UBC (University of British Columbia), she got very excited.                                                                          We are sorry about the poor quality of the photo but the plane wasn’t all that close to the beach. MOL

Upon landing at Vancouver Airport,  dad was grabbing the luggage off the carousel when mom came moseying along to remind dad what our luggage looked like.  Talk about giving the, “evil eye!”  Dad ‘s look could have stopped a Canada Goose  in mid honk!                                                                   

When mom and dad got into their motel room, mom called Barb co-author of, “Nellie, On The Edge.”  Barb was not far away and came over to the motel room.                                                                            They chatted and laughed and then figured it was time to go see a special lady and have supper.  Off they went to Barb’s new townhouse.  Mom loved the townhouse  except for the many stairs but Barb said all this walking is paying off.  She had become  a few pounds lighter.  When they got to the livingroom…..there was Nellie, just hangin’ out.  

                                                      Can you hear Nellie saying….”It’s Shoko and Kali’s mom and dad…so where is mes protégé, the little devil?”

You left her at home!  Mes will just have to go visit her then.                                                                        Me’s ready for a nap now.

At this point Barb told mom and dad she made a pot roast with all the trimmings for dinner.  They all charged into the kitchen.  Although mom and dad were not very hungry as it was 3am in London.  If mom is going to have beef, she wants pot roast….this is her favourite beef meal.  What a scrumptious meal.  Sorry no pictures.   If we were home, mom would have asked for a kitty bag. MOL

Time to return to the motel.  Nellie was getting ready for a snooze so mom and dad were quiet and let Nellie snuggle down.                                                                          These are the last pictures of Nellie.  It was her time to leave for the Rainbow Bridge.  We were so fortunate to  know this lovely Queen.

Mom and dad left for Prince George the next morning.  I was delighted to see mom and wouldn’t leave her alone all night.  I whacked her on the head when she fell asleep.  I wanted loves.  Kali wouldn’t look at mom but chattered away to dad.  Three days later Kali decided mom was ok after all.

We hope you enjoyed mom and dad’s jaunt to the old country.  They brought back a virus with them and were laid up for three weeks after arriving home but they’re fine now.

Thank you to all the wonderful bloggers mom and dad visited.  You are all beautiful and creative peeps.

Normandy/Omaha Beach….A piece of History

To read about mom and dad’s first meeting with Phenny and his family click on Easy’s Blog.

The next day these five didn’t waste time but got into Phenny’s Elephant Skate and for an elephant it was one compact elephant and they headed toward the Atlantic,  It was a long ride of about three hours.  Mom wasn’t used to sitting for so long anymore and kept getting sleepy.  Phenny helped with that…he told her things about his mom and dad that had mom wide awake.  He said his mom was renting herself out as a part-time carpenter and her dad was taking dancing lessons.  Mom was fascinated.  Is mom ever gullible!  Geesh! MOL                                                      They all arrived safely in Normandy  The little house we were renting was a beauty.                                                                             There were even 3 bedrooms so we could um and awe about which room we could have.

Unpacked we headed for Omaha Beach.                                                         This quaint house marked the start of Omaha Beach.                                                                      The only words mom understood were Omaha Beach,  camping and tennis.

While waiting mom sat on the Oceanic Kayaks.  She got up, heard a snap and landed on her face like a sack of hammers.                                                              That was a boo boo and she was determined though the knee hurt, it would not slow her down…ya right!  She never got down to Omaha Beach to find a used shell for a remembrance.  It’s probably against the law anyway.

Katty and mom made their recipe for Shopping Around The World….Salmon fish cakes.                                                                         Phenny was an enormous help.  If you want to read the Salmon Fish Cake Recipe….just click on the name.

We all decided to visit the Canadian cemetery and leave a couple of Canadian flags and candles with covers to guard against the rain.                                                                       

Phenny and Flat Shoko left their blessings for those that had fought for their freedom.

Thank you fellow Canadians…your efforts are so appreciated.  I wonder if cats helped the men like in World War 1?

Mr. Phenny’s dad  took mom and dad for a drive through Normandy for a look at the different architecture of the houses.                                                                  Mom says this big house looks very official so perhaps its being used as a museum.

Too soon it was time to go back to Paris and catch the train.  They left early and arrived in Paris around noonish.  Mom was very overcome saying good bye to Katty and Phenny.  Phenny’s dad helped carry suitcases into the station.                                                                         Mom and dad thank you so much for the unforgettable visit with such fabulous peeps and of course, the one and only Da Phenny.

It was time to get on the Eurostar train and head for London from Gare du Nord.                                                                          The Eurostar goes 200 MPH.  It took about 2 hours to fly the rails to London.  They spent a total of 20 minutes in the Chunnel.                                                                            Mom and dads last view of Paris from the rails.  Isn’t this the Metro mom?

Next installment mom and dad set their paws on  London cement.
