Happy Feline Friday!

My contribution to this week’s Feline Friday reflects my feline, Simon's, mood today. I write best early in the morning, and I have since Simon was a kitten, so he thinks I need to hop out of bed at the crack of dawn EVERYDAY, and salute him.   

Although, Simon's style is different from the cat in this image, he still thinks he's the boss. For example, if his breakfast is not served by six a.m., he curls his body on my pillow and purrs like a kitten, which would be irresistible at any other time, but not at the first spark of sunshine, when roosters are still asleep.  
Yep, Simon beats the roosters and birds awake, so instead of awakening to the usual morning sounds, my days begin with the sound of wind chimes smashing against my ear drum. 

I found Feline Friday while visiting Sandee of Comedy Plus, which happens to be one of my favorite blogs.  The meme began with Steve of Burnt Food Dude, which Sandee wrote,  "he started this meme because he wanted everyone to know that he doesn't hate cats.   I'm still not convinced that he loves cats, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. "   

I would like to thank Steve and Sandee for introducing me to such a fun meme, it's a blast. So, if you have a minute, visit one of these blogs to join in the link. I've tried to pick up Mister Linky's code, but I'm having trouble adding the widget, although, you can get it from Comedy Plus, or any of the other blogs listed on Sandee or Steve's blogs.

Thanks for visiting A Nice Place In The Sun, and have a fun day!

Awww, so cute. Cats do whatever cats want to do. It's the way they are.

Thank you Sandee. And you're so right, cats are animals with attitude. Have a terrific week-end, and know you're in my prayers.

Big hugs back to you-

Your cat sounds like my Lucy- except she walks up and down on top of me til I open my eyes- "Ahah" she says and begins to purr very loudly.
Only solution is to put her in the living room and close the bedroom door. When it's 6:30 I'll get up and give her some soft food in addition to her dry food that is always there. Spoiled? You bet!

"Annie" said...

Kathe, Lucy sounds so much like Simon, it's scary. I used to put him in the living room too until he started ruining my furniture.

And wet food was my trick too, but now he's moved on to dry and wet food, so I'm using tuna to bribe him.

Thank you for stopping by. I enjoyed your comment.

Have a happy Halloween.

Motherhood- Courage

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons






Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Written for Ann

Catch your dreams


Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
