Photo Hunters Crimson, 52 Snapshots Framed Caturday Cat Art

This week's Photo Hunters theme is CRIMSON and the 52 Snapshots theme is FRAMED
 Mom has recently gotten into adult coloring books.  There are lots of fun ones out there and it's very relaxing (which she seems to think she needs for some reason).  

One of the fun things about coloring is the supplies.  There are all these cute colored sticks that are pawsome for whapping.  What?  You don't want me to whap them?  Well PFFFT.....

It's a bit blurry butt CRIMSON RED is a color she uses a lot!


Today is also Caturday Cat Art Blog Hop

We FRAMED this photo of Raz with a CRIMSON border.

One of the exciting things she's going to do next is a review of a fabulous new coloring book by Byztat.  If you are not familiar with Bztat's art, click HERE to see some wonderful examples.  If you can't wait for Mom's review, you can purchase the Color Me Cats by Bztat HERE.

Flashback Friday Angel Clifford

Angel Clifford was soooo sweet....


Every year our pals mention that they missed out on the Blessing of the Pets because their humans forgot.  We will be going to the Blessing of the Pets tomorrow at the AFB here and many local Churches are doing it either Saturday or Sunday (our own Church does it Sunday but Mom thinks it's too stressful for us to ride down there).  Check around if you are interested!!!

Shopping Around the World

Today we're pawticipating in Shopping Around the World sponsored by Bacon from Pig Love.

Here are the details from Bacon's blog:

Me and my pal Fozzie started Shopping Around the World in April 2014.  This has become a huge hit and we all want to know if we are paying more or less than everyone else – snorts.  Our next scheduled Shopping Around the World will be – Wednesday, September 30th.
Do a posting on your blog linked back to mine.  That way we can keep track of all of the different prices.  It should be interesting to see the differences between.  Mark your calendar so you can do a posting with us.
Items to price this month:
FIVE items of your CHOICE – Something that you go to when making the family dinner.  Perhaps this is one of your family’s favorite?  A quick meal?  A snack?  List your FIVE items and discuss what the meal is.  Having pictures will also be fantastic to share.
Our recipe is easy peasy baked real live dead shrimp served over zucchini noodles (Zoodles)

1 stick of butter, melted
1 lemon, sliced
1 T Italian seasoning (I use Trader Joes 21 seasoning salute)
1 pound(real live dead) shrimp, peeled and deveined

 Line a cookie sheet with foil for easy cleanup.  Pour melted butter onto pan, place sliced lemons on the butter, and place shrimp on top of the lemon slices.  Sprinkle with seasoning and bake at 350° for 15 minutes. (I find it usually takes more like 20-25 minutes)

Zucchini Noodles

2 small to medium zucchini
spiral or julienne slicer
Cut noodles using your preferred tool.  I use this spiral slicer, but I've also used a Titan Peeler.  The spiral slicer is much easier!
After cutting, let noodles sit in colander for 30 minutes.  A bit of moisture will drain.  After 30 minutes, give them a squeeze with your hands to remove more water. place zoodles in a large pan. I use a deep skillet..  Toss with a bit of butter, a teaspoon or so will do.    Heat over medium, tossing often, just until the zoodles brown a bit.
Shrimp   $12.95 (large, peeled and deveined)
Lemon 3/$1.00
Butter $4.95/lb
Seasoning  $3.95 for a 2.2 ounce bottle....you use about 1 tablespoon
Zucchini   $1.69/lb

We can't wait to see everyone else's Shopping Around the World posts!

Please keep our Daddy in your purrs and prayers today as he starts week 1 of his 3rd round of Chemo.

Tuxie Tuesday with Cousin Trooper

Last week Mom had lunch with Cousin Trooper's Mom and got to visit with him for a while.  He was
being a bit shy because his Mom had been away at a Retreat all weekend.  Mom did get to talk to him and get some pictures.  He's doing really great.   His fur has grown back lush and full and he's put on some weight.  (Click HERE to see the post from when he was losing his furs).

At first he his behind the dresser....

After a while, he got comfy in his blue bed...

He really relaxed and got comfy but was still a bit shy.  

We know Auntie El is smiling down from heaven and is happy that her boy is doing so well.
