Yucky, Icky Saturday

Standard

Good Morning!   Why yucky/icky?  The weather stinks…….yesterday we started out at 4:30AM (yes I said 4:30AM) at sixty seven balmy degrees……two hours later it was forty seven NOT balmy degrees and raining like we would need that ark brought up from the basement that my Dad’s been working on.  THEN, fog moved in and the rain let up a bit………now I haven’t been outside yet this morning BUT something tells me it’s not pretty out there today either.  So, I’m assuming yucky/icky AGAIN.

However, I can overlook that little problem because there’s something in the air………….wafting through the house………….(no it’s not my litter box)………..there’s the irresistible aroma of – – – (wait for it) – – – –

YAY!!!!   And you know me – bacon soothes the savage beast (or not so savage cat  as well).  Mom made a big pile of it too.   That also means she’s making pancakes.  It’s a good way to start off a yucky/icky Saturday.

Now – get this – YESTERDAY I also got yet another award………I certainly did…….can you believe it????   This one came to me from my buddy Shrimp at Hairballexpress!  It’s a new award – I’ve never received it before but I like the name……..

FantabulousAward

Best of all there are no “requirements” or “rules”……you just accept it – thank the person who kindly gave it to you (THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SHRIMP!!), and pass it on to whoever you want to.  I like that!

I’m gonna pass this one to:

Easy

Savannah

Mr. Bowie

I’ll also say that anyone else who would particularly like to receive it to add to their award collection can feel free to take it and pass it on.  We’re all just one BIG HAPPY FAMILY here in the blogosphere right?

In line with that – I ALSO received my second star for my BLOG OF THE YEAR 2013 award from my super good friends at Purrfect Kitties.   That’s two stars out of six.  I’m so blessed by my friends…..THANK YOU!!!

WOO HOO TWO STARS!

WOO HOO TWO STARS!

How can today be yucky and icky if I’m so blessed to have such good friends?  Well, INSIDE the house and INSIDE my heart it’s nice and warm and happy………..it’s OUTSIDE that’s yucky and icky.  We might even see some snow over this weekend and early next week.  YIKES.  I’ll keep you informed!!

This was Christmas Day LAST year......will it do this again THIS year?????

HAPPY CATURDAY GANG!   Sammy

  5. Another star and another award. You are raking in the bling, Sammy. Good for you. We have been having the topsy-turvy weather. Two mornings ago, we could’t see our noses before our faces through the fog. Yesterday was somewhere between 71 degrees and 75 degrees, depending on which thermometer we checked. Like you, we need an ark, or in our case, at least a couple of arks. Some of us don’t want to share those close quarters with others. We’re waiting to see what materializes tomorrow. Mau has bacon pizzas at Campfire, Sammy. Hope you didn’t over-induge at breakfast. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

          • The bowl of water in the house is a good idea…..we have a humidifier on our furnace BUT Mom still puts extra bowls of water by the heating vents and it helps keep all that static electricity stuff out of the air – I don’t like it when Mom pets me and sparks fly! HAHAHAHAHAHA

  7. I always laugh like mad when I visit, your inner voice is such a hoot Sammy…”the smell is not the litter box”…crack me up. Now I do know that ‘bad weather’ is all relative to what you’re accustom to, so I won’t tease you at how perfectly balmy your temps sound to poor Boomdee 😀 I’m practically a crafting popsicle here. Stay warm my friend, perhaps on mummies lap. xk

    • Guess what Boomdee…..it’s balmy one minute and cold the next and we really WILL have snow and ice tomorrow….I’m sure….my arthritis is acting up so that’s my “inside info” !! It does look like you have a ton of snow up there – BE CAREFUL and stay WARM WARM WARM!!

    • Nellie I can’t tell you how nice it is to hear from you!! It makes me very happy – it sounds like it’s a whole lot colder there than it is here…wouldn’t it be nice if all of us could get together in a big furry bundle and keep each other nice and warm??? It’s too cold for our teleport tunnels to work so I guess that won’t be happening…..I hope you can squeeze out a blog soon because you are TRULY missed…..and loved….
