Really Random; Gone to the Cats and Dogs

Blogtoberfest, Day 18

I’m linking up with Really Random Thursday with my friend Cindy, over here.

For those of you with “quilting” cats, do you have trouble with them wanting to always be “in” or “on” whatever fabric or sewing project you are currently working on?  My Maggy loves curling up inside bags, particularly one I am in the process of packing… I think I “removed” her from this bag three times before I got the rest of the rolled up quilts shoved in there…

Our tuxedo cat, Kato, goes where ever his humans go in the house, he likes human contact far more than most cats do, and his new favorite place is in my sweetie’s guitar case while the guitar is out of it, being played.  Added bonus: a cushy, soft place to curl up while sitting close to his favorite human.

We said goodbye to my Sweetie’s dog, Frances, three years ago; the day after her fifteenth birthday (a Husky, she lived to be 15!).  Now that we are looking to buy a new home and will be moving sometime in the next six months, we are considering getting a dog again (Maggy will NOT be pleased should this actually happen).  I’m not sure I’m up for puppy training, so maybe a rescue dog…  But, it’s hard to say no to the cuteness of a puppy face.  This is my sister’s new bulldog puppy, Peaches:

Seriously, how cute is that face?!?  Peaches is a nickname for Princess Peach (which is what you get when you let your four year old Mario Cart obsessed son name the family dog!)  We think it’s going to be fairly amusing to call her Peaches when she looks more like this:

Just because this has a bulldog image, I’m sharing this fun recipe from a book we picked up at an orchard gift shop (and it suggests it being served for Oktoberfest, so it’s timely, too!) for BEER Muffins (let me know if you decide to try the recipe–I have not!):

And, finally, I didn’t buy these, but saw them at a Vintage shop in the East Village (Des Moines, Iowa), they are “Damn-It Doris” postcards:

Apparently, “Doris” is the goat pictured…  I see very few things with my name on it.  Wouldn’t you know I’d have to find something like this. Reminds me of Tina the Llama in Napoleon Dynamite:

aye, aye, aye….

Happy blog reading,

Doris (the human, not the goat)
