When a Cat Smiles

Writing down the names of my social media friends on my “Socially Correct Greetings” list and then adding which holiday greeting to be used for each (based on their religious beliefs) was time consuming this year.

I didn’t want to use the generic Happy Holiday greeting either. Too impersonal.

My cat smiling, as usual, at both my and my species self imposed idiocy responded accordingly with a single “Meow”.

One sound conveying so much. I liked it and so followed his wise advice.

I wish you and yours … LOVE!

With much affection,

~ Penny

Motionless, At Peace!

Sometimes it’s a very good thing to be motionless.

Taking pause in stillness and silence,

to reflect,

breathing in the richness of sensations

from our amazing planet.

To be at peace with the world and yourself.

Have a wonderful week ahead!

A little humor here (very little, LOL!)

“So um, hey bud … pal of mine,
you’re just cleaning your paws here
… right?
I mean it’s you and me … right, guy?”

Sometimes keeping your friends close and your enemies closer is not necessarily a good idea!

Hope everyone is having the best weekend they can have (all things considered). Stay cool – or warm, as the case might be and take care of you.

Thanks for stopping by,

Pause … breath in, breath out

Okay?

Feel better?

If not repeat!

When life is too much – of too much,

it’s probably because

its too much of too much!

So what are you going to do about it?

A Very Kicked Back Cat!

I’m thinking it’s time for a break. Ease up on things. relax, wind down.

It’s your life we’re talking here. How about being good to yourself

… for a change!

Yes, for those of you who have started to follow A Penny for your thoughts this quote was taken from today’s post. I guess I really wanted to make a point to as many as possible about our need to relax a little bit more in our too busy daily lives! I hope the point was made, be good to you – you’re worth it. Going crazy from living an insane pace isn’t.

Blah, blah, blah

In case you’re curious this could be a perfect photo for having a blah Monday. Which I don’t have to explain to you.

What this really is, according to pet experts is what our dogs actually hear when we are telling them something.

We say, “Bad boy, shame on you, you should know better. No.”

What the dog hears is Blah blah, blah blah blah, blah, blah, blah, blah … No!

What a Cat actually hears when you scold it is —————- !

Hope your Monday is not a Blah one for you! And that I brought at least a smile to your face!

This is not an Awww moment…but you’ll laugh!

“Can those cute little kitties do this! I think not!”

This cat is thinking the following “Okay so I get that those pictures of kitty cats are cute…but can they do this … touch their tongue to their nose while closing one eye at the same time … I think not!” (All cats seem to have that quality of disdain don’t they!)

Enjoy the moment and I hope this brought a smile to your face,

Thanks for the visit today!
