Shopping Around the World and Friendly Fill-ins.

Today is Shopping Around the world with our pal Bacon from PigLove

From Bacon's Blog:

Hello friends!!  Wasn’t all of the sandwiches from last month mouth watering?  We got so many ideas here at the Hotel Thompson.  What a blast!  This month we are going to throw a little twist to the Shopping Around the World.
We always concentrate on food but here’s the twist.  For February’s Shopping Around the World, we want a drink and snack food that you love.  Recipes, pictures are awesome and prices to be posted on:
Friday, February 23, 2018.
So mark your calendars and put on your thinking hats.  Is there a nightly ritual that you partake in before bedtime?  Maybe it’s something that you only do on the weekends.  Share with us in February ❤
One of Mom's favorite "sipping" vodkas is one she makes herself.  Very simple....pineapple slices and vodka.  The recipe is from the Capitol Grill.    Mom's infuser is glass like this one but with a different lid.  You can see the glass she drinks it from in our Flashback Friday photo below .
Pour the  Vodka directly over the fresh pineapple until the pineapple is covered with vodka. Allow to sit for 12-14 days to infuse the vodka with the pineapple.

Mom only does this when pineapple is BOGO.  You can use whatever vodka you like.
VODKA - $16.99/ 1,75 L bottle

Pineapple -  $4.99/1 whole cored 

For a snack....Mom is BAD.  If she has an evening snack it's usually something like THIS....

Directions - remove lid, insert spoon....enjoy!
Ben and Jerrys - $4.99/pint

Today is also Flashback Friday - what better photo than Angels Ellie and Cubby with Mom's DRINK!  (don't worry....she never got any.  Mom scooted her right away!)

One more thing!!!  We're pawticipating in Friendly Fill-ins sponsored by McGuffy's Reader and 15 and Meowing.

Allie is answering for us today.

1. My favorite president is ___Washington______ because __he was the first President and a founding father.  Without him our lives might be really different AND Mom lived in NJ where Washington crossed the Delaware.____.
2. This weekend, I have plans to  go to Egypt with Cat Scouts and my precious husband Mau______.

3. I        love    my    husband Mauricio .
4. I believe   that someday all kitties will have homes and be loved.  Maybe it's a dream but dreams can come true.

Poetic Thankful Thursday

Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats

Today's photo prompt is
Our poem is titled...

Away from every day worries
no wind or rain or snow flurries.
A peaceful island in the sun
Tranquil, beautiful and fun.
Peaceful walks on quiet beaches
It's time to slow down is what it teaches.
Peaceful thoughts of happy days
Enjoying the warming sun's rays.
Enjoy the quiet, peaceful time.
We'll toast you with a glass of wine!

Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

We're THANKFUL that Mom got up early and didn't forget it was Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats this week....we were first to comment and got this cool badge.

Monday Sparks

Today we're joining the new blog hop called Sparks that was started by McGuffy's Reader.
Here are the details from their blog:

Welcome to Sparks. Many years ago, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed other people's spirit as well. Life got busy, and this fell by the wayside. Now, I feel a strong need to bring this feature back. 

The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy and peace. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change. 

I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!

I hope you will join us. Please link up a positive quote, thought, poem, or verse. The badge and code can be found in my sidebar. Add the badge to your post to invite others. The more, the merrier. I welcome your thoughts. Peace.
Here's our Sparks quote for today....so very true.

Sunday Selfies with Daisy

We're pawticipating in The Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies today.

Our human sister sent us this selfie our cousin Daisy took.  She had her Ladygardenectomy on Thursday so she's wearing the Cone of Shame.  Daisy's smart though and she's managed to get it off!  We think she did a great selfie in spite of the collar.

Score - Daisy 1, Cone 0

Isn't she a cutie?   Notice anything else?  She reminds us a LOT of our Noelle and Sawyer from The Cat On My Head!

Caturday Cat Art

Today is Caturday Cat Art Blog Hop hosted by our pal Athena.

A few weeks ago we put a photo into Dreamscope and it never came up so we used a different app.  See that post HERE.   Last week, when Mom was doing Noelle's photo, we went back and saw that the photo was done.  We're sharing it this week since we liked the way it turned out! We added a frame with Pizap and it's today's artwork.   Doesn't it look like Allie has a smooch on her cheek? 

See more Caturday Cat Art HERE.

Friendly Fill-ins and Flashback Friday

We're pawticipating in Friendly Fill-ins sponsored by McGuffy's Reader and 15 and Meowing.

Mom is answering for us this week.

1. My Chinese zodiac animal sign is __The Year of the Tiger (probably why I am a Cat lover!)________.
2. My zodiac sign is _Libra (why I have a hard time making decisions)________.
3. Income tax season     is always nerve-wracking...making sure all the papers are in order.     .

4. In hindsight    I wish I had started journaling when Bill first got sick.  I didn't start until December of last year      .

Today is also Flashback Friday.  We know Valentine's Day is over but wanted to share this photo of Angel Ellie

Poetic Thankful Thursday

Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats

Today's photo prompt is

and our poem is titled 
Rockets to Space

We live on the Space Coast
Rocket launches our area hosts.
We watch from the yard or from the beach
Each launch makes space seem within reach.
Rockets to the space station
Satellites for every nation.
Rockets to Mars
Rockets launching cars!
We love space 
and we love living in this place!!

Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

We're thankful for everyone who helped us get through yesterday.  We're also thankful for the cool participation badge we got at the Tabby Cat Club....

AND.....we were right on our pals Angel Sammy and Teddy's Tuesday Teaser.  We weren't first but at least we guessed RIGHT!

Wait...there's MORE!  We're THANKFUL for our pals at Chewy for this sweet Valentine's Day gift!

Valentine's Day

Happy Valentines Day to all of our pals.

It's little Noelle's first Valentine's Day!

Allie wants to wish her husband, Mauricio, a Happy Valentine's Day!

Raz says Happy Anniversary to his gal Madi!!

Unfortunately, today is a sad day for us too. We all miss our Daddy very much.  Today is his five-month anniversary in Heaven.  Mom's been having a leaky eyed problem the last couple of days.
