    Gotta Outsmart This Cat….LOL, etc 

    Gotta Outsmart This Cat….LOL, etc.

    The folding thingy didn’t work. This girl is gonna have her
    way. I’ve thought about keeping her awake as much as possible
    during the day. And maybe forcibly putting her harness and leach
    on and going for a walk. She has been needing extra loving lately
    but it has to be her way. no picking up.
    Somethings gotta change, coz she’s way too smart for me. She left
    me an uncovered gift this morning, unusual for her. Maybe her potty
    needed checking during the night, so I’ll have to start checking when
    she starts misbehaving during the night. She had made 3 deposits last
    night. I always make sure it’s cleaned before bed time. And we do turn
    in pretty early as she expects.
    It’s gonna be hot, hot again today and no rain in sight. I keep thinking
    about the awful Irene and the trouble she has caused so many people.
    God bless those people and the animals affected by this.

    Same Old Stuff…..Kassey

     copied 8/30/11 from blogspot
    We had a nice weekend and disagreed on the blinds a lot.
    Mom kept putting me out of the bedroom and closing the
    door. Of course, in the morning she tells me she’s sorry
    for locking me out. I always forgive her acause I love her.
    She told me today that she has a solution to our problem.
    She’s gonna put a folding thingy between our bed and the
    window, allowing me to stay on guard. She’ll raise the blinds
    higher too, thinking this will help.
    “Thanks, Mom,” I said.

    Mama bird appeared after baby flew to the window.
    Proud Mama with baby trying it’s wings.
    I wondered if baby was looking for a bug.
    This lady came down the parking lot and the maintenance man waved her back , probably telling her where she’d find a handicap entrance to the walk. She visited the lady next door. I thought she was so cute. This lady is in her 90’s , someone told me.

    Mom :   Kassey was in her bedroom and I called her but she wasn’t interested. She also missed the rabbit
    that ran away as I fed the birds. She only got up when the door was opened.

    Wordless Wednesday Until……Kassey

    Mom said the pest man was coming and I thought I’d get a nice undisturbed nap….until
    she pulled out the noisy sucky monster. Mom thought I wasn’t afraid of it anymore. Well,
    she was wrong. MOL. She saw me crouched and told me to stay acause she had to get
    the flashy box. Silly Mom. I’m not moving  while that sucky monster sucks

    it’s way through my room.

    Happy Accident…Lemony Goodness 

    Happy Accident…..Lemony Goodness

     posted 8/20/11 blogspot, copied 821/11
    in the kitchen after making home-made buttermilk. I had
    almost a 1/2 gallon of 1% milk and dumped Lemon Juice in it
    to make buttermilk. I seldom measure things like this.I decided to make my pound cake recipe using 1/2 recipe, not
    realizing that I was too short on my self-rising flour. I then cut
    the recipe another 1/2, making it a 1/4 measurement of the full
    recipe.( I used honey instead of sugar and olive oil instead of
    good old butter.)

    This turned out to be a very lemony, wonderful surprise. Of
    course, I doubt I can use this buttermilk to make biscuits. But,
    it will make delish waffles and pancakes, cookies,etc.
    The last piece was spread with vanilla yogurt sprinkled with
    cinnamon…..ummmm…Recipe follows :

    2- 1/2 c. Self-Rising Flour
    1/2 c. butter
    1 -1/2 c. sugar
    3 eggs
    1 c. milk
    1 tsp. vanilla
    350   25-30 minutes.

      I’m not good at altering recipes, always a disaster if I do, last week I was making a banana loaf, I had 4 ripe bananas and used them instead of 3 also I have a new cooker so haven’t got used to the temps, the loaf was a complete flop, it didn’t rise properly then collapsed :-(( The seagulls had a lovely feast.

    I’m picky I know. Mom put my pillow up here, but I
    wouldn’t use it acause I prefur my furry cube. She hasn’t figured out how to de-fur it yet.
    I have no privacy here either as you see.
    Ok, Mom, I said, ‘What do you want?” Of course
    she wanted nothing, just to check on me.

    Mom made me a tower by stacking organizers under the card table. I love it and I can look down on Mom
    when she comes in.  You can see how high it is by looking at the bottom photo. It is 3 organizers deep.
    Mom is having ‘Stick’ problems again and this is the 3rd try, so I hope it gets posted this time.

    Cloudy Thursday Ramblings 

    Cloudy Thursday Ramblings

     posted 8/11/11 blogspot, copied 8/21/11
    I love cloudy days especially with a possibility of rain..We’ve had rain lately
    but it never lasts long. It’s a good day to prowl through closets and re arrange
    what has been rearranged. I’m coming across papers to shred as well. I won-
    der if I’ll ever get through….oh well, it keeps this old girl occupied.

    I’ve been making my homemade ice cream with frozen peaches and frozen
    bananas, vanilla yogurt, and all natural peanut butter. This concoction really
    goes well together and is scrumptious. I stopped buying ice cream after the
    Christmas holidays last year. I also haven’t made any tea cakes this year as
    I recall. I am losing weight which is a plus. I have an under active thyroid and
    losing weight has always been a problem. I do hope that changing my eating
    habits, which includes a lot of fiber, is the reason for my weight loss.

    I bought a book by Janet Evanovich “Plum Lovin’. But I haven’t read much.
    Maybe I can after I get my work done. Oh I got it for .50 at Big Lot’s off
    clearance. I love a bargain.

    I’ve gotten hooked lately on The Young and The Restless. I used to watch
    but quit from boredom I guess. I started watching Bold and Beautiful again.
    It is interesting for now. I do get bored easily.
    Well, gotta get busy. Y’all have a good one.

      Come on over to mine GG, and sort out some stuff for me too, I hoard too much.
      No way would I make ice cream I’d be ballooning up to twenty stone before I knew it. sounds scrummy though.

    Mom, you promised me some sardines. I’m reminding you here.
    I first tried to climb the TV to get your attention. Maybe my eyes
    will tell you that I’m very serious. I saw you hide it in the big box.

    So…..? I’ll retire to my pillow after I get my fish. Thanks, Mom.

    Mom here:  Yesterday, I continued having problems posting this and then it got stormy so I just never returned….good old rain.

    Mom and I were waked up by boomies, flashes and hard water against the bedroom window.
    This was around middle of dark time. So Mom moved the bed again away from the window.
    She didn’t mind acause we needed the much needed sky water. She had to repeat , “Kassey,
    get away from the window.” I have to keep watch no matter what the weather. It’s just a cat
    thing. MOL
    I hope all our furriends have nice sky water day if you want it.
