Call Me a Proud (Cat) Mama

Okay, so over the weekend, Cody and I had a pretty great game of fetch going on.


We must have gone back and forth with his little fetch toy at least 15 times. Of course, he wound up batting it under the fridge more than half of those rounds.


I had my camera right nearby while we were playing, so I decided to try and take some “action” shots of him. I don’t know…call me a proud mama, but sometimes my Codester is just too cute not to share with all of you.



He had me cracking UP for a good ten minutes, which totally made my Sunday morning.



Out of all of his little photo shoot pics, this is probably my favorite one of all.


He sort of reminds me of a little kid on Christmas morning or something. Doesn’t he look all cute and super innocent? Too bad I know better, buddy. Winking smile



Despite the fact that I’m freezing and actually really craving something warm, I still wound up making myself a nice, big salad for lunch.


We have a ton of veggies, some of which are aging a bit too quick, so I threw a bowl together with a bunch of good stuff:

  • spring mix
  • cucumbers
  • grape tomatoes
  • yellow peppers
  • baby carrots
  • dried cranberries
  • half an avocado
  • a hardboiled egg (whites AND yolks – first time in a long time…not bad at all!)
  • balsamic vinaigrette dressing


I loved how bright and colorful this salad was…and it was even better once I got a majority of the lettuce out of the way. Winking smile


I also had a couple small slices of sun-dried tomato and mozzarella quick bread with butter.


I’m actually shocked that we still have some of this even left in the house?! Although I have a feeling that it’ll be close to gone after tonight’s dinner – it’s leftover night, thanks to our fridge piling up with last night’s leftovers and my leftover meatball soup. I’m starting to run out of roooooooom.


Well, the winds are really starting to pick up around here this afternoon, thanks to Sandy, so I’m feeling rather thankful that I took care of my errands earlier today. From what I’ve been hearing, it sounds like our area is going to be most effected by winds, rather than rain. Keep your fingers crossed that these winds don’t knock out our power, because that would be a serious bummer.

If you’re in the path of Sandy, please stay safe out there!!

    Cody is adorable! Thinking of you and everyone else and hoping you stay safe throughout the storm! My cat loves those things too, its so bizarre what cats will play with. My cat also really likes hair elastics and water bottle caps.

    God I hope you’re safe over there; it sounds terrible by what they’re reporting over here in Ireland.
    You should quickly roast (about 15 minutes) your carrots, tomatoes and red peppers before mixing them with the rest of your salad for some warmth! Or throw some roasted pumpkin in the mix! :)
