Time To Hop!
It’s Sunday and time for The Cat On My Head’s pawsome “Parade of Selfies” blog hop. Wanna have fun showing yourself off with us? Just click on their badge above and fill out the EASY LINKY form and you’re strutting your stuff like the rest of us!
This week Mom used Lunapic again and the “REDS” Art Effect and man oh man am I popping on this one or WHAT?! Not exactly Christmassy but you have to admit – I look like a TIGER with my stripes huh? I’m showing you the “original” photo too – I was helping Mom change the sheets this week……well, I was sort of just guarding the mattress while she laundered the mattress pad and sheets but that’s the general idea.
This was Mom’s original photo
You should join in on the Selfie Hop – sure is an easy way to visit all your buddies on Sundays! We thank The Cat On My Head for being our hosts every week – there is quite a long list of “Hoppers” but there’s always room for MORE MORE MORE so join us??
Guess what ELSE?? We got SNOW yesterday for the first time this season – YES – maybe not a HUGE amount but perhaps 3-4 inches – Mom took these early on in the snow but we got more after this…………we think it looks pretty when it just “sits on the limbs” of the trees………..
My thanks again to Marvelous’s talented Mom Miss Barb for my holiday graphic!
Sunday Hugs, Teddy
It’s that day of the week for the HOP we love so much – and it’s co-hosted by our friends 15andMeowing and McGuffy’s Reader. In fact, if you feel like hopping aboard this Blog Hop, just click McGuffy’s badge above then sign up on the LINKY form! Easy – go for it and share your thoughts with the rest of us Hoppers. Every week both of those blogs give us a list of four (two from each) sentences with blanks – and we have to fill in the blanks……this week’s four sentences are below – AND, I let my Mom fill them in this week! Her fill-ins are in CHRISTMAS RED!
1. The best part of last week was finally starting my Christmas shopping – I’m later than usual this year for some reason!
2. The worst part of last week was not finding all the stuff I wanted to get for gifts on my first time “out” – that means more shopping next week……
3. Closet cleaning and kitchen cabinet clearing out is a Winter project that I will be working on.
4. A holiday gift that I always buy for someone is Christmas socks – that’s right – it’s just a personal tradition to give socks to SOMEONE on my Christmas list!
YAY! Thanks Mom – I couldn’t figure out how to answer ANY of those questions – this is my very FIRST Christmas so I guess I’m having to learn about family traditions and stuff so I’m afraid I’m not good with Christmas questions. All I know is that I’ve been very GOOD so no doubt I’m on Santa’s NICE list.
Actually I already got an early present from Santa – he dropped it off yesterday and asked Mom and Dad if they wouldn’t mind being his “Virginia Elves” and putting it together because they were SO busy at the North Pole right now. Mom and Dad said “of course” and they thought it might take several days to put it together but it didn’t – it took an hour! So I got to have it EARLY (Santa told them I could have it early if they finished it early). Here it is:
Pawsome huh? Well, know what? So far I haven’t gone near it. I want some time to get used to it being in my basement. I’m a BIG BOY too and I’m not sure I’ll really FIT on that thing. It’s six feet tall and the “condos” are nice sized – that big one I can definitely fit in and the perches I can put my buns on and stare out the windows but so far, even with the temptation of following the Red Dot, or snarfing up some treats on one of the platforms – I’m keeping my distance. Mom and Dad have said that I just have to get used to SEEING it there before I’ll use it. I’m not so sure…………I kinda like the hanging mouses and the rope……..guess I’ll just have to be brave and give it a whirl! I don’t want Santa Paws to be disappointed in me since he brought it to me.
Have you done your “WISH LIST” for Santa? Time’s almost up – you all better do a list – and make sure you stay on the NICE LIST too unless you want to get a bag of coal (Mom told me that’s what BAD kitties get but that’s silly…….coal????????).
See you tomorrow for BAKIN’ WITH BACON (Christmas Version)……………woo hoo!!
Let’s Go Hopping!
It’s Sunday and that means Sunday Selfies hosted each week by our good friends the Kitties Blue at The Cat On My Head. We all love to show off on Sunday – so we hop on board the Hop Train and before you know it, there’s all sorts of people to visit and selfie portraits to see! If you click on the badge up above you will go to their blog and see for yourself how easy it is to join up – and share your selfie with all the rest of us!
This week Mom used a photo that I had on my blog of ME snuggling in a blankie/bed that had been a gift to Angel Sammy before he went to the Bridge on Dec. 2 last year. It was his favorite nap spot and when I “adopted” it after I came to live here, Mom was delighted……..a little teary but delighted. Most of the time I like to “rotate” around the house in my 3 or 4 favorite spots for naps but this blankie is in the living room where the fireplace is, and now that we’re having fires – well – do I need to tell you how extra comfy it is there??
Mom used Lunapic to jazz it up a bit but I’m showing you the “starting point” photo too……………..and I hope you will consider hopping along with all of us today!!
Mom used Lunapic on this and I LOVE the colors!!
Here’s the original – amazing what art filters/effects can do isn’t it?
I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday……………..and if you’re not joining the Hop today – make plans to do it next week………..it’s tons of fun!
Love and Hugs, Teddy
Time For Fill-In Fun!
This is a super fun blog hop co-hosted by McGuffy’s Reader and 15andmeowing and each week they give us FOUR sentences with blanks in them – we get to fill-in the blanks any way we want to! Then we hop around and visit all our friends to see what THEY filled in – cool way to learn stuff about each other! Wanna play with us? Then click the badge above, go to McGuffy’s and fill out the LINKY FORM – that’s all there is to is! Join the Hop!
Here are this week’s sentences and it was Mom who filled the blanks this week and she did it in LIME GREEN!
1. The best part of where I live is we are far enough from Washington, DC not to be in the middle of all the BAD traffic but close enough to visit if we wanted to.
2. The worst part of where I live is our town used to be a lot smaller but as people decide to move “out to the country” things have become more congested out here.
3. If I had a cabin in the mountains, I would spend every weekend there and come back to the house during the week.
4. My favourite article of cold weather clothing is my wool hooded cape – SO COZY!.
Here We Go! Filling In Fun!
Know what ELSE it is???????
It’s Friday and that means filling in sentences on a fun Hop co-hosted by 15andMeowing AND McGuffy’s Reader! Every week we get four sentences with blanks and our job is to fill those blanks in. The result is that we learn a whole bunch of stuff about each other and that is FUN. We thank our co-hosts for giving us this opportunity every week. If you want to join in, just click the badge above and go to McGuffy’s where you can enter your blog info and VOILA – you’re IN!
Here are this week’s sentences and my Mom has filled them in using PURPLE!
1. Keep calm and just concentrate on doing things you WANT to do – things that please YOU.
2. Politics disappoints me.
3. June is my middle name – in honor of my Dad’s sister June.
4. In retrospect, I was not mature enough to get married “first time around” .
VOILA! Thanks Mom………….I won’t ask you about that #4 thing because the only Daddy I know is the one I have NOW and if “first time around” isn’t around any longer I’m SURE there’s a good reason for that. I LOVE your “second time around” !!! Tee Hee
We are having rain AGAIN today so I’ll probably mostly stay inside and snoopervise the Friday housecleaning. If things get too noisy I can always go out to my favorite spot – the garage……..I know I’m SAFE out there – no noisy cleaning out there to disturb my sleep!
See you all tomorrow in BACONIA!
I’m ready to hop – are you?
Every Sunday we join the fabulous SELFIE HOP at Kitties Blue’s blog – The Cat On My Head – it’s tons of fun……..you simply MUST join in. If you click their badge above you can go there and LINK up then you’ll be a HOPPER with the rest of us!
My Mom did her usual number jazzing me up this Sunday – she used Lunapic – a different effect though that she’s not used before called “STORYTIME”……..obviously her story was not that interesting because I seem to have dropped off while she was telling it! Oh well………..at least I’m comfy in Dad’s office chair right?
She sure does love that site…………..and I guess as long as she makes me look adorable I don’t care if she uses it over and over and over…………I think it’s way cool though how it made me look all soft and squishy and turned Dad’s black leather chair into something that almost looks like SNAKESKIN.
Anyway, that’s it for this week’s Selfie……………….! Hope to see you hopping around the blogosphere today!
Oh yes – before I forget – a reminder of yesterday’s post which told you that I’m having the BACON HARVEST at the greenhouse here NEXT SATURDAY! That’s right – if you remember last year we had a ball – we worked hard harvesting our bacon crop but then we are until we couldn’t stuff in any more food and had a ton of fun. If you want to be here – please email me your photo in your best HARVEST GEAR (!) via email in .jpg format……….you can wear whatever you like, but I gave you some ideas yesterday so feel free to use them! CLICK HERE FOR YESTERDAY’S POST WITH PHOTOS AND INFO ON THE HARVEST.
If you are unable to photo edit, you can send my Mom a photo and we’ll fix you up……..!
See you tomorrow for Pre-Tease Monday!
