Friday Mishmash

It feels like forever since I've done a FMM - I'm slowly getting back into the groove of blogging.  Oh and working - I've worked my part-time job for the last two weeks which has been good; I'm enjoying it even when I can't remember or don't quite know how to do some things.  Office work is one thing but adding the medical/insurance component to it makes it a lot more complicated.  The only glitch has been with me not able to drive; Jeff has to drive me there on his way to work and then he takes a later lunch to pick me up and bring me home.  It works but it'll be nice when I can legally drive a car again, which won't be for another month, sheesh.

********************

First up is Henry and his friend Mr. Rogers.  Actually Henry has two friends - Smokey, an all gray cat, and Mr. Rogers, a calico/white mix.  Mr. Rogers always comes over the fence into our backyard, so obviously he's a neighbor, and Smokey - well, you can probably guess why I named him that.  Yes I name the random cats that come to visit - doesn't everyone?  I've caught all three cats hanging out together on occasion, which always makes me smile - Henry has friends!  I've also seen Smokey come to our front door via our Nest camera, which makes me wonder:  if he could reach the doorbell, would he ring it and ask if Henry could come out and play?

This was from earlier in the week:
Henry was hanging by my window wanting to be let inside.  Mr. Rogers came over and distracted him for a bit.
Thankfully Henry is pretty fastidious and could not be persuaded to go roll in the dirt with Mr. Rogers. I really don't want a Pigpen situation inside the house.

Next up is Paco.  Because he was enjoying laying outside at Allie's place, I bought him an outdoor dog bed - I guess our grass is not as soft as Allie's because he doesn't do that here.  But it's too cold to be outside right now, so the bed is currently residing in our living room:
Dis bed is sproingy.

Right now we have the bed on the floor near the end of the couch, which Paco uses as a springboard to hop onto the couch.  It's pretty cute to watch him do that, plus I feel better about it because sometimes he's tried to jump onto the couch and failed - I suspect he's got some doggy arthritis going on, poor old pup.

********************

Speaking of getting older, take a look at this:
Why yes, that's my niece Theresa DRIVING me to go pick up dinner.  DRIVING.
She's also taller than me.  
I swear she was just this little girl like, yesterday.  Paco and Theresa, circa 2009.

Finally, when Theresa and I were wandering in Macy's last month, we came across Thor, aka Chris Hemsworth, aka my future third husband, so I had to get a picture with him:
Hey Thor.

Have a great weekend!

  2. You and Thor look great together <3

    I love that Henry has friends! How fun he hands out with the neighborhood cats. We name all the animals, too. We mostly give them GOT names. Ha.

    Paco is going to want and indoor and outdoor sproingy bed once it's warm enough to go outside with that one!

    Glad you're able to go back to work! Have a great weekend too!

    1. You are probably right, Paco will need another bed once this one goes outdoors. The color goes well with our living room (as in all weird things with Amazon, they had a ton of colors and each one was a different price...this one was the cheapest) so I'll have to see what color "deals" they have going on in a couple of months.

  3. I may have said this before, but personally I think Chris Hemsworth is The Perfect Man. He's tall, he's super handsome, he's Australian, and most importantly, he's funny. I mean...what else is there? He could be dumb as a rock but I still stand by my answer. He's perfect. *swoon*

    Glad you are starting to feel better!

  4. What a fun blog. Of course I love seeing all the animals. It seems funny that Henry likes other cats! Noah has a bed like Paco's that he sleeps on continuously. But he's so big that he sometimes tears holes in it. And believe me, its not fun replacing the pad. But of course you've got a husband so you won't have to worry about that!

    1. You are not kidding about replacing the pad - well, I got the pad on but couldn't get the metal parts screwed together by myself, so yes, thankfully Jeff took care of that.

  5. So cute, kitties coming to visit. Also Chris Hemsworth is my future second husband.

  6. Sorry I have been MIA. The internet has taken a back seat lately (which is not a bad thing).

    Henry needs another friend! Pixie hates other cats. I could never have another one with her around. Also with John around LOL.

  7. Pets! And pet friends!!! I’m impressed that Henry has friends. At my house there would be lots of chasing and hissing.
