The Cat That Got Caught Yellow Handed

cat paw

There was a “who done it” mystery to solve last week.   A formerly beautiful table set with a fresh arrangement of Flowers from the garden.   Happy white daisies with bright yellow centers from Mom’s garden, and red Asiatic lily’s from mine.   A mess of flowers strewn everywhere and water spilled all over the table from the overturned vase.   It wasn’t TOO hard to figure out “who done it” , as it obviously wasn’t one of we humans that reside here, so unless we have a poltergeist (doubtful), we knew it must be one of the cats.  but which one?   Was it Rusty , “The Cat That Came to Dinner” (click the title for that hilarious story), who often sits at the dining table like the … Continue Reading

The Cat That Came to Dinner

  Over the years we have had all kinds of dinner guests, but lately there is this one guy who is quite hairy.   He started out as a party crasher at birthday dinners & other celebrations only (he knows how to work a crowd), and now he has decided to become a permanent fixture.  I can’t decide if he’s rude or polite- horning in on meals without an invitation.  That is the rude part.  But then again- he DOES sit there ever so quietly-acting all calm and patient.  Plus- he never says a word.  Who can argue with that? I decided it was fruitless to resist him since he is not a quitter anyways.  “So what if he is the hairiest guy I have ever eaten dinner with?”  I … Continue Reading

The Cat That Wanted To Party- A True (Funny) Story

Funny Cat

Did you all have a good weekend?  I had a rather sleepless one myself.  Aside from the fact that I have been struggling with insomnia worse again lately (Gah!), I was forced to deal with the Cat that wouldn’t sleep , but instead wanted to “Party”.  Let me explain it to you Dr. Seuss style…   Around 3:30 am on a Saturday Morn I laid there (not sleeping) much to my scorn My head was a pounding, a sinus headache The wind was a whistling, a loud sound it did make! I tried to get comfy, but my head said “No way!” So I got up for some Tylenol, to keep pain at bay. I hunkered back in , it was about Four But I was finally warm and sleepy-ready … Continue Reading

A Delinquent Doughnut Day-Five Minute Friday “Dive”

Five Minute Friday’s are back!  I have had a doozy of a day and am in silly mood at this point so I am not sure how this five minute Friday will go today!  It could end up good, or it could end up really stupid and cheesy.  I typically write poetry style, but am not as poetic today, so I may deviate a little.  Anyways, same rules as always.  You write for 5 minutes only…you can’t over think or back track.  And you must visit the person who went before you.  Today’s word is DIVE, so I am going to er..dive in here and see what we come up with.   Go   It’s a new year Doesn’t that make you want to just dive right in ? Dive … Continue Reading

Facial Follies-Gettin’ My Glow on for Christmas

  I don’t know about you all, but when I am feeling tired, a little under the weather, or stressed, that is when I turn to some pampering “me” time.  I do one of several beauty or spa related things , from a foot soak and manicure/pedicure, to exfoliating scrubs, facials, hair treatments, essential oil treatments, etc.   Well today was one such day , where I decided to spruce myself up with a beauty night.  After not feeling well since Thanksgiving, I thought this would be SO what I needed.  It all seemed to be going well-   I had my hot bath, complete with all natural peppermint soap, and I decided to do an exfoliating facial scrub (one of my secrets to keeping my face looking young 😉 … Continue Reading

A Not So Inspiring Cat Caper

  So today WAS the day I was supposed to submit the results of what happened during my week long “Praise Project” experiment.  I say WAS, because the cat had other plans.  I do my blog posting at night, because that is typically when I have the most quiet time to write.  So I worked really hard and had this perfectly written draft that I was just wrapping up (writing the last lines too) and Boom!  The seemingly sleeping kitty suddenly decides to wake up , step on my keyboard, and delete the whole project!  Then he runs off like nothing happened.   AARGHHH.  The only thing inspiring about that (and it’s a stretch) , is the irony of the fact that I had written this whole post on being positive … Continue Reading

5 Minute Friday Funny-Growing Roots (aka Butt Plant Syndrome)

TGIF!!  Yes, Thank Goodness it’s Friday! (Five Minute Friday that is).  Who is ready for a laugh today ( I did a comedic twist for today’s post).  The rules are you are supposed to write whatever comes to mind with the special word of the day.  No over thinking, or over editing.  Just pure writing flowing out however it wants to.  The other super important rule is that you can’t be all about yourself here…you are supposed to visit the person who wrote before you and leave a comment.  After all, that is what community is all about! Today’s secret word was “Roots”  (for other 80’s children out there…does the word of the day ever make you think of the show Pee-Wee’s play house? Or maybe it’s just me…. 🙂 … Continue Reading

(Funny) Five Minute Friday – Race

Who needs a good chuckle at my expense this week?  Look no further!  This week’s 5 min. Friday started with a major blonde moment on my part, and since there is this rule that you can’t over think this, you can’t backtrack, and you just have to write what comes to mind for 5 minutes flat, I left it just as it happened-blonde moment and all 🙂  Maybe I shouldn’t get so excited about 5 min. Fridays that I stay up past midnight to write these!  Surely this is to blame… 😀   My friend Becky and I did this project together while we were Skype chatting tonight, and since she is not a blogger, she will be leaving her 5 min. Friday in the comments section below (at the … Continue Reading
