Fashion advice and my favorite kitchen gizmo....

"Mom? Does this basket make my butt look big?"


I recently purchased some new catnip from the place where I get the buckles for the cat collars that I make our kids. Man, it must be some seriously good sh!t! lol I caught Beeswax pulling the packages of batteries out of this Longaberger basket this morning, in his quest for a fix. I'm talking packages of D cells! The heavy ones! I keep the catnip in there, with the lid down, but he wanted in and he wanted that stuff NOW. So I gave him some and put it away and he went after it again. Then he wanted in the basket. *snork* We were cracking up, watching him. He's so funny.

Nosey Parker wanted some too and after Beez vacated the basket, she climbed in. A slightly better fit, but not great! Daddy brought Beez a bigger box.


I have to share with you my favorite kitchen gadget- the Sunbeam Egg-cetera. I've had this forever, I just love it, it makes the best poached eggs. You put some water in the bottom, up to a certain line and plug it in, when the light comes on, they're done! And isn't it cute? The little egg shape just cracks me up, no pun intended. One egg on a half of an English muffin and I'm thrilled at breakfast time. It'll do hard boiled in the shell, too, if you want.


Cute, huh? I hope it never dies, I'm sure they don't make it anymore.

And finally- you all know about Nosey Parker, the white kitten. We also have a black cat, Sammie, short for Sambuca. Well, he's the only one that will play with her, the other boys have each other and that's all they want. They wouldn't play with Sammie either, so when we got NP, he was kind of happy, until he learned how tough she is and relentless! lol She pounds on him all the time, but sometimes he likes it. Anyway, when they're together we call them Salt and Pepper. And when she's beating him up, we change the names again to "Assault and Pepper".

Somedays, I feel like I should call the cops on her, she's mean! Poor little Sam, he's been known to scream like a girl and he goes on and on about it. rofl He's got super thick fur, though, so she's not really hurting him.

Fun and games at our house. Stoned out cats and kittens and wrestling matches. It's pretty entertaining sometimes!

Lol - that's too funny!! I love how cats go for catnip, it's the funniest thing to watch. And then when they are all high on it aftewards...that's some good laughs. I miss having kitties in the house to do that to. ;)

I love poached eggs!! What a great little machine. And the pictures of the kids (especially Beeswax) is priceless! The catnip "back theere' in those hills" must be good stuff indeed. That little NP is one tough chick!! She shouldn't be so hard on her brother (who screams like a girl).

It sounds like "Spring as sprung" at your house. Wonderful isn't it?

It was very kind of Daddy to find a box for Beez to sleep off his drunk. LOL What a riot! You're right, that must be some quality nip. Loved the kitty escapade stories and pix FB.

What a very handy egg poacher. Now I want one. I do have the egg mcmuffin thingy, but I like your gizmo too.

I just love your cat pictures and updates. I think you could almost title the one photo "Yin and Yang" as they're pretty close to being in a circle.

Have a great weekend!
