Sleep Blogging and Zombie Rabbits Means it’s Time to be Random

Once again I’m sitting down to write a blog post when everyone is in bed and I’m about to fall asleep at any moment. Nothing says random like sleep writing. Too bad I couldn’t really write blog posts in my sleep. That would make my life so much easier. No more guilt about not posting. No more guilt about working on the blog instead of doing family stuff. Sleep blogging would solve everything. Maybe sleeping pills would help me with my sleep blogging. If you listen to all the side effects on the commercials people end up doing all kinds of things while taking them. If you can drive a car or raid your fridge, why couldn’t it help with sleep blogging? As soon as I figure out how to make it happen I’ll let you know.

Yesterday was an absolutely gorgeous day outside so Snuffy wanted to go outside. Because we are such responsible cat owners, Snuffy has is only allowed out on a leash. He then proceeded to eat lots of grass and snort like a pig. Once he was back in the house he promptly yakked up all the grass on my rug and then took a long nap.  But hey, isn’t it all fun and games until someone throws up?

This is Snuffy before he ate all the grass and threw up.

Someone had posted a picture of this Chocolate Zombie Bunny on Facebook and J-Man saw it.

Without missing a beat he said “That’s some dark chocolate”.  I love that kid.

Hello Spring Meow Monday

Definitely happy to say Hello Spring Meow Monday! Finally some spring weather on this beautiful day. Of course, it’s supposed to be in the 40′s again on Wednesday but I’ll enjoy 70′s while I can. The cats have been enjoying the fresh spring air and have been glued to the open windows most of today and yesterday.

Jezebel has been watching the birds in the back yard. Good thing she’s in here and they’re out there.

George and Snuffy came over to see what Jezebel was doing. They are always so nosy and can’t resist checking up on each other.

Spring Break Meow Monday

The kids are on spring break which is a good thing because I feel like I’ve been in constant motion since we arrived home from Disney almost 2 weeks ago. Sooo, there may be a few things I haven’t had a chance to tend to. One of those things might be unpacking my suitcase. It’s not like I’ve needed all the summer clothes packed away in there. I was finally able to get to my suitcase today and, of course, I had a helper.

Rosie was quick to jump into the empty suitcase and make herself at home. I think she’s saying “Next time you’re bringing me!”

Now it’s time to introduce you to Lily, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week.

Random Up

It’s entirely possible I haven’t done a Random Tuesday post since November. How can that be? I checked and apparently it is very possible.

Just one week ago we got back from our trip to Disney World. Of course now that I’m home it’s a constant blur of taking care of the kids, homework, housework, real work, grocery shopping, sick husband, and all the other fun stuff that comes with being an adult. I guess that’s why it feels like it’s been months since our vacation instead of just a week. Really, just a week?

Did you know that if you put butter on a Lean Cuisine meal it tastes so much better? You’re welcome.

The weather here is still pretty sucky. Every morning I hear the weatherman say “It’s colder than average”. I’m so sick of it. I can’t wait until he says “It’s warmer than average” then we’ll all complain about how hot it is. Because that’s what we do. Although it may take a little longer for the “It’s too hot!” complaining to start this year.

My mom loves going to yard sales and finding all sorts of treasures. She’s found some really beautiful things over the years and some really interesting things. Last year she bought an Art Deco lamp that she just loves. The base is a woman holding a stained glass fan and the fan is the light. My mom went on and on about how much she loved it but the fact that the lady didn’t have any clothes on bothered her. Leave it to my mom to come up with a solution.

If you have small children send them out of the room or if you’re easily offended don’t look!

Here’s the naked lamp lady before

Here’s naked lamp lady after my mom has made her acceptable for company.

Yes, I did pull her tissue paper dress down in that first picture. I’ll admit it made me feel a little creepy pulling down the naked lamp lady’s tissue paper toga dress. The things I do for you all.

Meow Monday – We Missed You

Hard to believe, but I think at least some of the cats missed me. Or it could be that every time I sit down to work they want to sit on my lap and fall asleep. Although George usually likes to fall asleep on the foot of my bed. He’s not a lap cat but today he decided he wanted to lie in my arms like a baby. Not exactly conducive to getting computer work done. I guess it’s their way of saying “We missed you”.

We Missed You

 

Here is Mr. Hugs, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week

Meow Monday on Vacation

I don’t have any photos of my cats on this Meow Monday because I’m on vacation, well sort of a working vacation if you can call being at Walt Disney World work. I’ve been hard at work eating, drinking, learning. I attended the Type-A Boot Camp at Walt Disney World Resort and it was packed full of info that I’ll be bringing home with me and putting into action.

If you aren’t in sunny Florida with views like this

20140331-124503.jpg

and you happen to be in Rochester, NY with views more like this (and yes, this is what was out our back door yesterday morning. The kids were more than happy to let us know it snowed. So we sent pictures of us having fun at Disney World without them. I think that means we win.)

That’s a real shame. But, I have a great way to brighten up your winter blues, go adopt Billie Jo, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week!

Billie Jo

Billie Jo is a 3 year old male domestic shorthair mix who loves catnip and attention. He’s not a fan of all the hustle and bustle of the cattery. Maybe if you come visit him, he’ll open his eyes and see if you’re the humans for him. He’s a handsome guy who would love to go to a nice quiet home.

Devious Maids: The Complete First Season on DVD

I received a copy of “Devious Maids” The Complete First Season DVD to aid in my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Devious MaidsThe Complete First Seas onDVD

If you haven’t had a chance to catch “Devious Maids” on Lifetime Television, now’s your chance to see all 13 devilishly fun episodes from the first season because they are now available on DVD.  The Executive Producer of “Devious Maids” is Marc Cherry, creator of “Desperate Housewives”, yes, that Marc Cherry.

“Sex, Lies, Murder…It’s all in a day’s work. Meet five women bonded together by their jobs, their dreams and the dirt they sweep under the rug: Aspiring singer Carmen; Rosie, who longs to reunited with the child she left back in Mexico; Marisol, whose outward identity masks a desperate hidden agenda; and Zoila and her daughter Valentina – both employed by the delightfully unhinged Genevieve Delatour (Susan Lucci). Before the season is over, illicit affairs will be revealed and depraved secrets exposed, as we learn the sordid details behind a shocking murder.”

Once you start watching “Devious Maids” you’ll be hooked and will most likely find yourself binge watching the entire first season in one sitting. Just saying ;)

Bonus Features include;

  • Devious Maids 30310 featurette
  •       The show may be set in 90210, but the action is far from Beverly Hills, Ca. Come            along as the cast and crew share some of their favorite things about shooting the              series on location in Atlanta, GA
  • Bloopers
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Extended Scenes

Don’t miss all the devilish fun of “Devious Maids”

Meow Monday – Looking For Signs of Spring

We are all looking for signs of spring, even the cats are getting sick of looking out the window and seeing snow. Snuffy can’t wait for warmer weather so he can go outside on his leash. Until then he’ll have to be content with just looking.

20140324-213730.jpg

Another cat who’ll probably be happy when spring finally gets here is Bease, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week.

20140324-212852.jpg

Bease
#22295471

Bease is a 3 year old female domestic shorthair mix who came to Lollypop Farm when her owner died. She’s all alone in the world….except for all the strange cats around her in the cattery who make her kind of nervous. She’s a shy, gentle girl and it may take her some time to get comfortable when you meet her at Lollypop Farm but we know she’s worth the effort! Bease is front declawed so it will be especially important that she be an indoor cat. Come meet her at Lollypop Farm!
