Shopping Around the World

Hi everyone! Today we are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop and  Bacon’s Shopping Around the World which is being hosted by our friends Kali and Shoko.

This month they asked for a seafood dish. Mom doesn’t eat seafood except for solid white albacore tuna and even that she has a love/hate relationship with.

Big mistake sending Joanie and Sammy to the store for the ingredients.

Tuna Macaroni Salad

Ingredients:

Box of small shell pasta $1.00

mayonnaise $2.99 for Hellman’s 30 oz.

5 oz. can of solid white albacore tuna in water -drained and flaked  store brand free this week with purchase of Hellman’s.

1 cucumber-peeled and chopped $1

salt and pepper

Directions:

Cook pasta according to directions on box, drain then add cucumber, tuna, salt and pepper and mayonnaise, stir together and chill in refrigerator.

Sorry, that is the best we could do for seafood. Mom usually shares the tuna with us too so there is less in the salad.

I got to see Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much. I am going to see her on Monday too.

The A-Z Blogging Challenge ends tomorrow- any guesses on what Mom made for Z? She is very proud of it, there was no pattern so she made it up as she went along. Sometime this week we will be having a giveaway for 2 lucky winners to split all the A-Z loot.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 51

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins Week 51- next week will be a full year since we started them and we appreciate and thank all who participate. Remember to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader, you can also answer in the comment section.

1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is _________________________________.

2. If I could afford a billboard, it would say ___________________________________.

3. I have a hard time                              .

4. I really enjoy                               .
My answers:
1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is An Interrupted Life: The Diaries 1941-1943 by Etty Hillesum.I reviewed this book back in September 2016.
If I had the money, I would buy the rights and get it made into a movie. I found it even more interesting than Anne Frank’s Diary because Etty was in her 20’s when this was written and was trying to find love as more of her rights were being taken away. It is so good that I haven’t finished it because I know there will be nothing else of hers to read.
2. I could afford a billboard, it would say SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS!
3. I have a hard time WITH ANY KIND OF CHANGE.
4. I really enjoy BEING HOME WITH MY CATS.
And for The A-Z Blogging Challenge, we have an x-mas tree, I didn’t want to take the Christ out of Christmas, but I couldn’t think of any other X to crochet.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Sorry I am so tired and weak from lack of treats ( Mom is rationing them).

I am thankful that I have a stash of treats, if only I could get them out of the package myself. I am thankful for Grammie too, I love her so very much even if she didn’t come inside to say hello to me when she picked up Mom yesterday.

Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day.

Treats
I love all treats
they is all I wants to eats.
Give me Temptations and Party Mix
make sure you give me more than six.
I have yet to meet a treat I don’t like
regular food can take a hike.

Sammy is posingwith the Whale for the A-Z Blogging Challenge. It must be a baby whale, it is kind of small. I am sure The Trout Talking Tabbies will approve of this one.

Mom is participating in Wandering Through the Shelves Thursday Movie Picks, TV edition:police- here are her 3 chocies:

  1. Shades of Blue- Currently is season 2, this show with Ray Liotta and J-Lo is well written and the acting is so good.
  2. Life on Mars ( 2006) – British TV series that ran for 2 seasons. A police officer gets in an accident that somehow sends him back to the 1970’s.
  3. Life on Mars ( 2008)- American remake that was just as good as the original. The character development and 1970’s costumes were fantastic.

And here are The Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first 2 and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second 2.


1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is _______________________________.

2. If I could afford a billboard, it would say ___________________________________.

3. I have a hard time                              .

4. I really enjoy                               .

Temptations Tuesday

Hi everyone! Today is not usually my day to write, but Mom said I could because I have lots to tell you and Thursdays are busy with blog hops.

Grammie was here Monday and look what she bought for ME. My favorite flavor of Temptations. I love her so very much.

Mom says I can’t eat as many treats as I want anymore because I have high blood pressure. I am taking a pill for it though and it is fine now so I don’t know why I can’t keep having lots of treats. Maybe if Mom would stop schlepping me off to the vets my blood pressure wouldn’t be so high.

I got mail on Monday too! My thoughtful, sweet and handsome purrince sent me this beautiful card.

And my purrince and I got to spend time together at an amusement park as part of Blogville’s Spring Break. You can see us and lots of others having fun over on Madi’s blog.

You all had a lot of good guesses on what today’s A-Z Blogging Challenge item would be, but no one guessed an Uncle Sam Hat. Any guesses for V?

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? blog hops.

I am reading several books, but my favorite is Theresa Caputo’s Good Grief: Heal Your Soul, Honor Your Loved Ones, and Learn to Live Again. I have read her other books and loved them and this one is no different. I recently discovered that her show, Long Island Medium is available on Comcast, I am a little slow being that it is currently in season 10. She helps so many people by giving them messages from loved ones that have passed. I even signed up on her website for a reading, I can’t imagine being chosen being that I wrote I want to be in contact with my deceased cats. I know there are a lot of psychics out there, but the part that impressed me is that she is still Catholic, but just happens to have this gift that she uses for good.

  For the A-Z Blogging Challenge we have a turkey leg for T. Any guesses on what I will crochet for U tomorrow?

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone!   I am practicing my pole dancing for Cinco de Mayo. That is my favorite day of the year, Daddy gives me $5 and Grammie does too. All I need to do is a little pole dance and tip my head toward my collection cup.

I got to see Grammie on Saturday, she stayed with us while Mom and Dad went to an Open House at a local garden center. I love my Grammie so very much! I will see her tomorrow too-yippee!

Sammy thinks he is so special because his Delorean came in 3rd place for fastest car in The Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby and Jackson Galaxy was a guest judge. When Mom told Grammie she asked if there were more than 3 entries- MOL! Yes, there were at least 10.

Earth Day

Hi, today we are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. Phoebe wanted her art to celebrate Earth Day so we went to wishafriend.com and found this:

And for the A-Z Challenge we have the letter S for Snowball. I wanted Snowball to model with it, but she didn’t want to pose so here is Joanie.

  She didn’t lick this one like she did the pickle.

We were very sad to see that Bionic Basil’s family has lost two of their beloved kitties, Humphrey and Snowie.
