Friends Friday

CATEGORY: | Thursday, January 14, 2010

Remember our friends Calle, Halle and Sukki that sent us this? Well, they now finally have their own blog. Be sure to stop over and say hi and give them a big warm welcome.

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful Mom was able to finally tame me. I was a very skittish feral kitten when she first adopted me. My foster mom wanted to keep me longer to socialize me more but since we have such a quiet house and Mom has lots of experience with kitties, she let me go early. She came "that close" to giving me back, but then we had a talk and I finally smarted up. When people come over (except Angel's mom) I run for the hills. Just ask Chey's mommy, she knows first hand.

Mancat Monday

CATEGORY: | Monday, January 11, 2010
This is Angel and I waiting for Mom to come back from her scrapbooking weekend. Angel's mom took very good care of us while she was away. Out of all of us we think Angel was the happiest to see Mom. It was so cute and she was squeeing up a storm.

This is the house where Mom stayed. It had some killer icicles hanging all around. Luckily it was bitter cold so they weren't melting and in danger of hitting someone. Yesterday morning the actual low got down to -10F/-23C.

All of her friends who had cats missed their furries and were anxious to get back home to them. Mom's real good friend was working on an album of her kitties. She and her fambily have always had black cats. The picture of her friend with the reindeer ears holding her kitty is taken in his "deluxe condo in the sky" on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. What a view they have!

Mom couldn't believe how close Angel and I were on the bed.

She then scooted me over right up next to him and we laid like that for a very long time. This would never happen first thing in the morning (usually 4:50am) as we are too busy growling and hissing at each other. Mom says "Go figure!"

We are giving Mom the weekend off to go scrapbooking so we will be back on Monday. Angel's mom will be staying with us to cater to our every whim. Have a great weekend everyone!

Really want to cut my hair like photo above and have ever since I saw it...

Could do a version with long bangs.

Maybe some brighter pieces of blond with more contrast pieces added in.
Gloomy here AGAIN

Mind is swimming with creativity

Where to start........

CATEGORY: | Wednesday, January 6, 2010
My Birthday is 12.12 and it has come and gone....but this cowl was from my Mama...she made it


Her collection grows

FINALLY....made a Blurb book

Oh Christmas tree....at Jason's Folks house

Christmas day Jason's folks house

Her Nutcracker....I love it

dotted window

Mr. Cutie Pie

She kept setting up stuff around the house

I WON this chain from Yokoo

So...where do I start...

December was so busy
My Birthday came 12.12 and Jason and I went out to a movie...'Fantastic Mr. Fox'
It was amazing...also went shopping with my Ma all day. Loved it.
Got some great gifts and my Ma and I bought each other something.
We got her an amazing purse, Marc Jacobs!!!(T.J Maxx of course) I finally gave in and got some Emu boots for home usage(From My Mama)....and I LOVE THEM!!!! They are amazing!!!! So comfortable and they are only for inside as we do not wear shoes in our home.
My brother is mad at the family, long story, but he did not come to our traditional Christmas Eve gathering at my Ma's and there was a lot of drama to go with that...but I will spare you...I was sad a bit and even cried but that's how it is right now....
We had a blast on Winter break and Jason had 11 days off!!!! It was amazing...I got to shop alone...we went on a big light ride, saw Santa, did crafts, saw family and really enjoyed each other's company...mostly
but I had a mammogram and got called back the next day....I was in a HUGE panic and got the call while our friends from Oregon were visiting. It was soooooo scary....turns out I have a Cyst in my left breast and after the Ultra sound and second mammogram they said that I need to come back in 6 months to make sure it's just me....it was soooooo crazy and nobody told me that it is very typical to get called back after your first one because they have nothing to compare it to and don't know what your breast tissue looks like.
makes perfect sense but geeeeez
they could have told me.
Anywho....it was a very busy month and I survived another Holiday season and another Birthday although this year my Birthday was tough for me. I was kinda bummed out???
I have always loved my Birthday. Next year I better be getting a SURPRISE party...that's all I have to say!!
So 2010 here I come...
ready or not I am going to shine....xoxo
