Monday Monday

The Monday-ist Monday

Yep, I think I have a "case of the Mondays." (giggles) I need to go find some flair to help put some sparkle on today. 
I hope that when we talk about the weather you understand we aren't complaining, but making observations. While sometimes we wish it were different, we go along with what we have. 
So last week we had fal-ummer. Over the weekend we went from fall to fal-inter. And today they told us it was to be 70, clearing in the afternoon, and humid; didn't get that at all. I mean, really, I'm wearing socks! Ugh! (giggles)
It's a day to curl up in the rocker with a good book and a cup of tea. right, Rascal? Oh, Tutu, you need to stay there.
Oof! (giggles) or hop up here.
So while I rock with the kitties I wanted to let you know it's Coolspring week. Kaya promises to give you some new sights in her report. And if you follow our Facebook page you'll get sneak peaks Wednesday through Sunday.
Hope you have a wonderful Monday and rest of the week. Stay comfy!

Best wishes,

International Day of the Girl

Let your light shine on the world!
Reach out and achieve your dreams!

Some resources for more information on this day:



Our Photo Shoot for the Day

Lanie as Veterinarian

Et Cetera, Et Cetera


[Xyra aside: Haley is behind Lanie because she was having trouble standing and needed to lean against the "table." That's also why these two didn't take as many photos as the previous duos.]

What do you dream of doing?

What do you want to be?

Celebrate you today! Thank you for stopping by!

Woe and Glow

The Woe

Acknowledging Hurricane Season

Hi! It's been quite a spring and summer and hurricane season. The east coast is watching Michael and the west coast Sergio. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have felt the effects of previous storms hoping for a strong recovery. We also send strong thoughts of safety for those in the storms here and now.

[to relieve some stress...]

Our Photo Shoot

Lea and Grace told us to try a couple poses a different way than they did.
We did, but I'm not sure it worked right.



Not bad though.
Whose poses do you think are better?

Do you have treats in your purse?
Not that I know of.

I think Lea will like this selfie.
It's an us-ie, you know. (giggles)
Ugh! (laughing)

Model Monday Plus: Lea 'n Grace

Still Fal-ummer

Hi! It's in the 70s today, overcast and drizzly and humid.
Still shorts and short-sleeves and sandals weather.
Yeah, tomorrow we are back up to the 80s.

Whew, we're getting this one in right under the wire!
Yes, and we hope all of our Canadian friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
So true!

Here is Our Shoot














I think we want to try those first two again.
Yeah, we have another idea on how to stage it.

The Plus


Hold still.
Why?
You have a hamster on your shoulder.
(laughs) I know. She likes to ride my shoulders. 
If I hold still, she'll switch sides.
Cool! Sometime I need to try this with her.
