Mom Monday

Standard

Good old (!) Mom………….where would I be without her?   I don’t wanna know!   But today she’s going to get some blood work done (glad it’s not ME) so I’m making it “Mom Monday”.    When she gets home I’ll pop up on her laps and keep her warm.   It’s what I do BEST!   (yes I know I reap the benefits myself from using her as a heating pad)

My Favorite Nap Spot!

I guess this is a “leg nap” not a “lap nap” !!

Yesterday was another cool start – it was in the 40s in the morning and when Mom went down our LONG driveway to get the newspaper, she wore her winter parka!  That’s right……….WINTER PARKA.   So, I think it’s safe to say, those lazy, hazy crazy days of summer can be packed up and put away for another year!

Did you know that this Friday is “Pirate’s Day” in the blogosphere?  Yes indeed………….I’m already working on a suitable photograph to post for the day.    The Cat Blogosphere calls it “Meow Like A Pirate”  day but if you’re an animal of a different sort I guess you can substitute the appropriate “sound” for a meow!   HAHAHA

This was me LAST Pirate Day:

SamPirate1

Tomorrow I have a GUEST TEASER for you Teaser fans…………..so be ready with all your reference material (or your finger on the google search button…hahaha) and maybe you can figure it out FIRST.  You get a badge you know if you’re the FIRST right guesser, or you guess correctly period, or even if you haven’t any idea where the Teaser photo was taken you STILL get a badge.  Where else can you go and ALWAYS win something huh????

Hope you have a fab day…………..whether your Mom is having blood work done or not, give her an EXTRA hug today……why?  Let’s say it’s “GIVE YOUR ASSISTANT AN EXTRA HUG” day.  Hey – I can make up a special day if I want to right??

Awww.......

Awww…….just like this!

HUGS, Sammy

  6. It is so hot here, Sammy, but we don’t want 45 degrees either! Isn’t there somewhere where it is 68 degrees year round? That’s what my mom wants to know. Have a happy Wednesday and take good care of your mom.

  8. Naps on your Mom’s lap sound good this cool day. Hope all goes well with the blood work, fingers crossed. I have to do a big FOOD shop and I don’t like going to the store…. Thinking HAPPY other thoughts. At least CH goes with me to carry the heavy stuff and help.

    • Hi Miss Pix!! Yes indeed – a warm lap is grand on a cool day. It was only 45 here this morning (eeek) but it’s not 74 so that’s much nicer!! My Mom loves grocery shopping – yes she’s weird (!!!) and my Dad HATES grocery stuff but will sometimes go along and just sit in the car then help her unload the cart when she’s finished. Try not to think about THAT part – just the end part when the refrigerator, freezer, and pantry is FULL!

      Hugs, Sammy

      • Oh yeah! I love a full pantry and a full freezer.. 😀 Almost as much as I love the house after I have cleaned the hardwoods and vakoomed the area rugs and lit a fall scented candle! We are home and I am on the couch typing to YOU! It is drizzling and I feel all Fall-ish! CH loves to food shop, he likes all kinds of shopping.. yay! Enjoy your afternoon and evening Sam Cat and get that lap time in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Hi Miss Pix! So you got your shopping done with CH and it wasn’t all that awful after all was it!!!! See???? Told ya! We had sunshine and cool temps all day yesterday and that’s what we’re supposed to have the whole rest of the week. Yesterday after Mom got home I had her lap for HOURS AND HOURS (not counting potty breaks of course). We were each other’s hot water bottle!!!! HAHAHAHA

  9. Paws crossed for good bloodwork results. It was so cold here last night, we switched from summer quilt to winter duvet. It’s warm and sunny out so it’s colder inside! Merlin and I are on the picnic blankie enjoying the sun. Hugs to all.

    • We’ve done the switch from quilt to comforter too!!! How delightful that you and Merlin are hanging out in the sun together……..I know that feels delicious to be in a big sun puddle with your Mom so tell him I said HOWDY DO from one old guy to another!!

  10. Sammy, so glad you have a body warmer named mom at home. Good luck to mom and her blood test. It’s darned cool here….that’s for sure. Now that everything in the garden is dead…..the temp hasn’t gone down to freezing again. Pooh, I knew this would happen.

    • That’s the way things go with gardening – sadly that happens almost EVERY YEAR to us with our tomato plants – one nasty night does them in then we get a heatwave. NOT FAIR!!!! The good thing is that my Dad loves fried green tomatoes……….Thank you AGAIN for the great book review! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • Tee Hee………..I can’t remember the EXACT time I scheduled the Teaser to pop up but I think it’s “any minute now” as I see you posted this at 9:12AM!! Mom just got back from grocery shopping and we’re wading through the comments and guesses now! Mom had to have some repeat blood work done from the regular yearly stuff because two of the values were WAY WAY WAY off from last year so her doc just wanted her to have a “re-do”. We hope it was a lab error – if not – we’ll be checking into it for sure.

      Hugs, Sammy
      p.s. Sent card to Mau and Misty May this AM via email for tomorrow!! 😉
