We Did It!

We Did It!

We Did It! - We Finished the Blogging A to Z ChallengeWhew! We finished the Blogging from A to Z Challenge yesterday. We had a few glitches, like when mom went out of town for a few days, but mostly, we did it! Will we do it again next year? I’m not sure. It was very tedious challenging writing six days a week (seven if we did Sunday Selfies with The Cat on My Head) and finding topics that applied to me. I guess that’s why it is called a challenge, but it may be too much for this cat and her old mom. Mom says maybe we need to learn to think outside the box more! I’m not sure why … Continue reading

X is a Tough Letter

Yes, indeed, X is a tough letter. There are quite a few X words but most are of the scientific variety. We pulled out theChristy on shelf DSC_0333_1265 dictionary to try to come up with something creative. About all we found was xerox, Xanax and x-ray that we could use. Even though x-ray isn’t very creative, at least I do have a story to go with it. You may have already heard the story, but you probably haven’t seen the pictures.

Whirling Dervish Kitty

She wanted to be sure she wasn’t going to offend anyone. She had heard the term for years but didn’t know the origin or exactly what it meant, only that it was something going round and round — whirling.

When we decided to use this video for W in the Blogging from A-Z Challenge, we needed to do more research. First, we went to Wikipedia, our favorite research tool. Holy cats. After reading all that, there was no way mom and I could put anything on paper that made any sense to a kitty or most … Continue reading

Caturday Art: Beautiful Vistas

Boy, are we ever behind! You know how some days just don’t go right? Well, yesterday was one of those days — and today seems to be following right along. Mom was about to post the art she did for today and suddenly realized it was not what she had planned for the letter V in the Blogging from A-Z Challenge. It was a totally different picture that she could not title with a V no matter how hard she tried! So she had to quickly do another one. The good thing is that she likes this one much better.

Caturday Art: Beautiful Vistas

Mom took this photo a few miles from our house. It was early in the day and a little misty still. This is what … Continue reading
