Another Week Ending

So let's see...

Bought a new handmixer Sunday
broke it Monday,
back to the store it went.

(I'm thinking this story does not inspire you to try my baking...)

Let's see if this one lasts longer!


My friend Corinne
(who looks after Banjo when we are away)
got herself a 'rescue' kitty from the SPCA - LOVE IT!
This little girl's name is Reggie.
She is about 1.5 years old and is a polydactyl kitty.
It looks like she is wearing mittens on her front paws.
CUTE!!!



It's my baby boy's birthday.
He's 22 years old today.
Happy Birthday Kurtis!



The weather has been an
unpredictable mixture of
this, that and the other thing.
I wish Mother Nature would make up her mind!




“What good is the warmth of summer,
without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” 


I don't know if I buy that...
but umm...
OK...

10 days until Christmas Eve?
Incredible.

Wishing you a most beautiful weekend!

Reggie is a cutie pie! Happy Birthday to Kurtis! Hope your mixer holds out long enough to bake him a cake!

Linda R said...

They just don't make appliances the way the used to. I do hope this one works for you. And that kitty is just so sweet. I love its little paws. Too cute.

Happy Birthday to your son! Now you can make him a cake with that new mixer..

Hugs~

Susan said...

I am so NOT ready!

Reggie is adorable (don't let Banjo hear me say that).

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

That's a nice looking mixer and an adorable kitten.
Happy Birthday to Curtis

Hi Catherine! It was nice to hear from you, and it's just as nice to be able to sit this evening and catch up on your blog--I don't know how I miss so many of your posts...I've got to stop being so busy and pay better attention! :-)

But what a cutie Reggie is! Our last cat was a 'mitten kitten' and thought it made him that much more unique! I also like your mixer, I've never seen beaters like that before.

I hope you're doing well, and I hope you enjoy your weekend!

What a adorable kitty....

I'm with you, and your winters are much longer then ours...

I really start to mind them in March.

Good news about Reggie! Happy Birthday to your son.

Thank you for your kind words of sympathy for our Joey.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Catherine,
Happy belated birthday to your son. Reggie is a lucky girl for being adopted by your friend Corinne. Earnest Hemingway cats, but it doesn't matter they are equally sweet and lovable.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Good luck with your baking!

Hope Kurtis had a good day - Happy Birthday to him!

Love your friend's new kitten, so sweet!

Like the look of your new mixer too - have fun with it & have a good weekend!

Kay :)

sharon said...

what a beautiful little kitten! love your mixer too! yummy goodies to make!

Michael Manning said...

What a beautiful story of the kitten adoption! Food for thought: A replacement Norelco electric razor costs more than the mixer---sad but true! : )

Naturegirl said...

Where has this year gone! Hard to believe that we are coming down the home stretch for Christmas Day!! Love the paddles on the mixer! Now that kitty is simply adorable! You know it will be a "Biggy" when fully mature. I love those paws.
In case I run out of time to make the rounds today I wish you the Happiest Christmas ever and may you have many more treasured moments in the coming year! Fa la la..Joy to The World! hugs Anna

Lin said...

Happy Birthday, Kurtis!!

They don't make appliances to last very long now, do they? It's so frustrating. I go through irons like there is no tomorrow.

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

Totally lovin those kitty paws. Hope this mixer holds up for you!

Laura Delegal - Leroy Photography said...

Ha, didn't know that about Hemmingway cats... thanks for uping my intelligence (just a tad). Happy bday to your son. :D

Carolynn Anctil said...

Reggie is a cutie-patootie! I wonder if she'll be able to help open jars and such with her opposable thumbs.

Happy Holidays to you and your entire beautiful family, Catherine...including your beautiful pets :).
