Monday Morning Mews: The Winners

Hi, readers, it’s Sundae with this week’s mews.

Today, I really have special NEWS to share: Motor Mommy asked for my help in announcing the winners of her Charlie Brown Christmas tree painted rock contest.

She decided that, rather than just give away ONE rock, she would have Motor Man draw a winner from the list of bloggers who asked to be entered in the contest and another one from the list of non-bloggers. But first, she put all the slips of paper with names on the floor by the rocks, so we could have a photo-shoot with moi.

The blogger whose name was drawn is Cindy, the author of Mama’s Empty Nest. And the non-blogger is Joyce F . Motor Mommy wanted me to let you know that your rocks will be sent out to you in the next couple of days.

Concats to the winners!  Now, wasn’t that fun? We should do it again soon!

Monday Morning Mews – Selfie Edition

Happy Monday, efurryone! It’s Sundae, reporting today’s mews, and I have an exciting announcement.

I have been practicing selfies!  These were taken one evening last week when I had joined Motor Mommy in her recliner.  We sometimes have a little “snuggle time” there at the end of the day.

This was my first one, and as you can tell, I needed more practice. I cut off my ear! Obviously, that just won’t do. (Can you see Motor Mommy in the background?)

This was my next try. I decided to include Mommy in this one, too:

I was smiling in that one, but Mommy wasn’t, so I had to take one more.

There, that’s much better. I think I could get into this “selfie craze”.  Wonder if Mommy would buy me one of those selfie sticks…?

Monday Morning Mews

Greetings, efurryone! Sundae here with the mews today.

 

You may recall that, a couple of weeks ago, my step-sisfur, Gypsy, was featured in an interview on the blog Piglove, written by our new buddy, Bacon. Well, Bacon also offered me that same opportunity, and my interview appeared on last week’s Spotlight Thursday, which you can read here.

Don’t worry: Gypsy and I have agreed not to let the fame go to our respective heads. We’ll still be the same down-to-earth-girls you’ve come to know and love.

Thanks, again, Bacon!

Monday Morning Mews

Hi, efurryone. Sundae here with the Mews this week.

I’ve always known that Motor Mommy spends quite a bit of time on the computer…between her blog posts, email, Facebook and (still) waiting for April the Giraffe to give birth….well, like I said, she spends a LOT of time looking at the computer monitor.

She and Motor Man purchased an antique oak roll-top desk from her uncle’s estate a few years ago, and that’s where the computer monitor and keyboard are. She also has a collection of tiny oak dressers on the top. (Can you tell she LOVES oak?)

Anyway, sometimes, when she’s sitting there at the computer, I decide she needs my company. I’m not particularly choosy about where I sit. After all, I don’t really need much space.

 And I don’t think she really needs to use that hand anyway.

Let it be noted that my pawrents do not find this past-time nearly as entertaining as I do.

The Kitties Have Spoken

I have recently been advised by both Sundae and Gypsy that they feel they are not being adequately recognized on this blog.

So, today is kitty day here on These Days.

Every evening, Sundae and I retire to the recliner where I attempt to read the paper, while Sundae turns and twists and turns and twists and finally curls up in my lap.  I recently snapped this close-up of her during one of her “lap times”.

Meanwhile Gypsy continues to rule the office and wrap all our visitors (and us) around her paw. And she recently discovered the relaxing magic of a kitty brush.

Hopefully, now the kitty egos will be satisfied for awhile. Purrhaps I should plan posts about our fur-babies more often.

Random Five Friday

Here are today’s random thoughts from our little corner of the world:

1.) All those early morning and late evenings I spent spraying Liquid Fence have been worth it.  I actually have a decent gladiola crop this year.  In the past, the deer have enjoyed the blooms before I even had a chance. Glads always bring back memories of my grandmother.

2.) A couple of evenings ago, Sundae was just “hanging around” on the arm of the recliner while I read the paper.  I took this picture of her from an odd angle with my cell phone. (A selfie, of sorts.)  It reminds me of a stodgy old gentleman in a library.  Marshall says she looks as if she’s ready to say: “Oh, yeah?!  Well, let me tell you this….”

3.) Wednesday morning’s sunrise.

4.) However, yesterday morning was an entirely different story. We had thunderstorms move through around 8:30.  Later, several people, myself included, said they’d never seen it as dark during daylight hours. It was practically impossible to get a good photo. Although the flash of my camera illuminated the raindrops,  you can also see that our neighbors’ exterior photo-eye lights were triggered by the darkness.

5.) This weekend is the Olden Days Festival in our little town.  It begins tonight with a concert (oldies/beach music), a classic car show and vintage market.  Saturday will be more concerts, along with the car show, vintage market, craft and food vendors and the farmers market. My friends, Donna and Shirley, are arriving this afternoon to attend tonight’s activities with us, spend the night, and “do the town” tomorrow.  Tonight’s weather is a bit iffy, but tomorrow looks great.

You may recall my post about last year’s Olden Days weekend, where I hitched a ride on a picnic table on wheels. Wonder what adventures we’ll have this weekend?

What’s your randomness today?
