Wishes for the New Year.

Hello Dear Friends,
Here it is New Years Eve 2009, we are having a quiet little celebration at home just Sir Knight, Genghis and myself. But before the New Year gets here I wanted to take a few minutes to remember all my friends and wish you the very best for 2010.

This is my wish for you
By Charles Livingston Snell (1914)

This is my wish for you.
That the spirit of beauty
May continually
Hover about you
And fold
You close within
the tendernesses
Of her wing.

That each
And gracious
Thing in life
May be unto you
As a symbol
Of good for your
Soul’s delight.
That Sun - glories
Star - glories
Leaf -glories
Bark - glories
Flower - glories
& glories
That lurk
In the grasses
Of the field
Glories of mountains
& Oceans
Of little streams
Of running
Glories of Song
Of poesy
Of all
The arts
May be to you
As sweet, abiding
That will illumine
Your life
And make you glad.
That your soul
May be as
An alabaster cup,
Filled to
Overflowing with
The mystical wine
Of beauty
And love.
That happiness
May put
Her arms
Around you,
And wisdom
Your soul serene.
This is
My wish
For you.

I don't make list of resolutions, nope never have. I know that the best way to make things impossible for me to follow up on is to put pen to ink and then to paper - making them a chore.
So I refuse to set myself up for failure. Instead I found these wonderful things to remember and I will strive to remember them throughout this next year.

Things to remember:
....Marshal Field
1. The worth of character;
2. The improvement of talent;
3. The influence of example;
4. The joy of origination;
5. The dignity of simplicity;
6. The success of perseverance.

Hoping you all have a safe and happy New Year filled with more laughter than tears.

Its over. But so much fun, while it lasted.

Hello Everyone,
It is I Genghis Khat, Yipee! I finally found the computer left on and the chair empty so I could post.

Well, Christmas is over - but boy was it fun - I got so many toys all filled with catnip (Santa was way generous cuz I was good all year (insert snickering here)). I think this is the first day my head isn't buzzing and I'm not zoning out. In fact I'm not sure if any of the kids stepped on my tail or not when they where here; but who cares!!!! We had fun.

On Christmas morning the space under the tree was so full of presents they were tumbling out from underneath. We open presents as soon as everyone got here - which was good for me cuz I was too excited to wait for them to eat first - everyone laughed and had such a good time. I even put on a couple of good shows for everyone by diving in the piles of used wrapping paper and in general making a fool of myself - but heck it was Christmas and your only young once - so i was living it up.

Here I am resting - the last couple days - trying to get myself in shape for the big New Years celebrations. (Get rid of that camera will you - I'm trying to get some sleep.)

Holly Happy Days! Decking the Halls

The tree in our living room done in Blue and White.

Tick tock says the clock - - -
Christmas is almost here.
Hurry, Scurry - - -
Things to do - to make things merry & bright.

  • Deck the Halls (finished)
  • Trim the trees (finished)

Our wonderful nutcracker collection on display in the living room.

The mantel made merry with a few Santa from Sir Knights collection.

When a tree is just too much - a small bowl of vintage ornament along with a pink Santa does the trick to bring Christmas into our bedroom.

Even our Northwoods apartment in the basement is decked out for the holidays with friendly bears and moose.

A small tree just right for my studio - with ornaments that allow for Genghis' redecorating at whim.

The tree in the Library has no lights - made festive with tags of book titles we have enjoyed.

Pastel Pink roses on tree in Kitchen - to match my Tea Rose Dishes.

A long view across the table to the wall which Sir Knight built for me to hold my kitchen stuff.
As you can see I do like plenty of stuff. My table set with my holly dishes which I use only during the week or so before Christmas. On Christmas Day I use my Tea Rose dishes ( which I have more of) with the matching Christmas serving pieces.

A close up of my teapot shelf, with Frosty and Santa taking center stage with a nice Candy treat.
I collect Snowmen while Sir Knight is the Santa collector. I like snowmen because I can leave them out longer and they make me smile all winter.

My buffet all decked out for the holidays.

  • Address the cards (finished)
  • Send out the packages (finally finished)
  • Bake the cookies
  • Wrap the presents
(Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggg! I cant wrap them if I haven’t even finished them.)

Come on get busy there is more to do -

Christmas will be here in 9 more nights.

Hello everyone,

Just thought I’d share a bit of my holiday madness with all of you. I hope you have all your holiday preparations in order.

The life of a procrastinator is especially harried at this time of the year. I really did mean to start these little gift projects earlier, but true to form here I am running around like the proverbial chicken with its head cut off trying to finish things up.

Which explains my being MIA here in blogland. So please my dear friends forgive a poor unorganized procrastinator like me. Have pity on me for my scarcity of posts and lack of visits to your wonderful blogs.

One day I do hope to be more organized - hopefully in this life but if not - the next will have to do.

Happy Saint Nicholas Day

Hello everyone,

Well today is December 6th that means it Saint Nicholas Day - the day to find your shoe filled with treats from that very kindly bishop.

For me this day has always began the giving season.

When I was in Catholic high school and college we always planned to began our secret Santa gifting on St Nicholas Day, and then once a week there after you left a small token for your giftee, all done on the sly without them knowing; till right before Christmas vacation we revealed ourselves to the person we had been gifting and gave a slightly more expensive token of our love, friendship and well wishes for the holiday season.

For most of us our gifts were homemade cards & ornament so I have a box full of wonderful ornaments; most to fragile to ever hang on the tree anymore; but browsing through the box on these cold nights brings back so many wonderful memories of growing up.

Sir Knight and I left a shoe out last night - but I'm not gonna tell you what we found in them. Somethings are a bit to personal or weird to share with the world. TeeHee!

So did you leave your shoes out last night?

Blogger is giving me a fit and wont let me continue my post around the pictures, so before I have a breakdown and throw a big tantrum I best finish up this post.

December 1st.

Hello everyone,

Well here it is the first of December and midnight yesterday was the deadline to submit a piece for the Nov/Dec. - Challenge over at Mind Wide Open. Gail gave us the picture you see above on the first of November and the word prompt was time. Then she gave us a whole month to do it this time instead of 7 days. I'm sure some people may have liked the extended time - but me - well, I'm a procrastinator at heart. I really had to keep myself motivated and make sure not to push it so far down the schedule, that I failed to complete it.

So without further ado - here is my entry in all its pink prettiness. I'm happy with how it turned out. What do you think?

Please head over to MWO at check out all the wonderful entries, and do make sure you vote for your favorite.

Purrfurmance Review

Hey everyone,

It is me, Genghis and I just had to share with you some very troubling facts. You see my friends over at Jan's Funny Farm told me about this purrfurmance review that should be done for quality control of this blog. On my! Oh my! As much as I love Pellie if I had filled in this evaluation, I am afraid she would have failed miserably.
I mean right from the get go she gets two swats. - She doesn't post to this blog daily for her own maximum exposure much less mine.
I would be stretching to give her two paws for taking a few wonderful pictures of me, cuz its really not her photography skills but my overwhelming cuteness that makes the pictures great.
As for the posts I do make - I am the only great mind behind the imaginative, well written post.

As for Pawticipation of fun blog events - the only party Pellie joined was a Hallow & Screams one and there was so many scary, loud noises that I chose not to be a part of such an event - so there again she would be getting two swats; she should have made it more Genghis friendly and lower the volume on the rattling chains and stuff.

I feel it is for the best, to not turn one in this year -as it would humiliate her. But she really needs to get her act in gear and improve over the next year or I may just may go and develop some not so nice behaviors.

Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it.


Festival of Trees

A Fairy Tree

Hello Everyone,

The Thanksgiving meal is but a fond memory and family has returned home to return to life a usual for one hectic month - till we gather once more and celebrate the gift of Love.

Over this Thanksgiving weekend Sir Knight and I did observe one tradition we have grown to love.
Here in the Quad Cities as we are called; we have a yearly festival put on by the Quad City Art and it called the Festival of Trees. If you like Christmas and the thrill of seeing finely decked out trees you too would love this event. I thought I'd share a few of my favorite tree and scenes with you.
Putting on the Ritz, in black and white

A Harry Potter Christmas

Frosty the Snowman stands next to a tree full of elephants

Elvis is having a Blue Christmas - oops guess not his tree is quite merry & bright

a fireplace scape with silver and gold, so cozy
Christmas under the Big Top

WXMS Radio station turning out the hits -the elf DJ must be on break

A tree of stuffed animals which they donate to different hospitals, police, firemen and ambulance services.

Hope you enjoyed the tour - I'm not the best photographer -but I hope they were good enough to get you into the Christmas spirit. Now I need to put on some Christmas music and gather my supplies for one of my Christmas Crafting projects and get busy or I fear I'll never be done in time.

Happy Thanksgiving

Hello Everyone,
Sure wish Pellie had a picture of a Thanksgiving Cat - but she doesn't so I thought I'd post this one - cuz it kind of makes me think of Pellie when I look at it.

We have finished our very wonderful meal and all the boys are now enthralled in the game - while the girls are nodding off for a peaceful nap.

So I Genghis Khat have a few minutes to do a post on this blog thingy. The folks all talked about what they were thankful for as they ate - so I had to run off and think about that for a bit.

What am I thankful for? Well! I am thankful that Pellie and Sir Knight rescued me from the shelter and give me should a nice forever home; since I've been here I have not known hunger, thirst or real dangers. I have many soft bed that provide me with numerous place to enjoy peaceful sleep. Now today, with all the family over - I am thankful I didn't get trampled under foot. When your just used to two pair of feet around - it is surprising how much space 8 extra pairs take up and man oh man some of these guys have big feet. As the old saying goes" I have been as nervous as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs". But now everyone is settled down and all I just have to do is choose a nice lap to cozy up on and catch a few winks.

Hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving and enjoyed your turkey as much as I did.

Happy Napping!

Thanksgiving Blessing to Each and Every One of You.

Hello everyone.

As we will be spending Thanksgiving with the family - there are many preparations that will keep us pretty busy tomorrow - house to finish cleaning, pies to make, etc. so I doubt we will be getting on the computer much.

One thing I am so very thankful for this Thanksgiving is all my friends, the new and the old - the ones who visit my blog regularly and those who stop by once in awhile. All of you have brightened my days and blessed my heart with your friendship. Thank You.

God bless all of you and your wonderful families

Penny & Sir Knight

Sullen Saturday

Hello everyone,

What a sad state my life must be in right now - when the most exciting thing I have to post about - is that I just got a new one of these. I do love its snazzy neon color.

To make matters worse and add insult to injury - an older couple in their 70's probably, who were checking out in the next lane over were laughing at me. No I am not just paranoid -and they were laughing at something else. The Lady turned around looked me in the eye and told me to just wear wash and dry items like the rest of the world; all the while both husband and wife are laughing at me.

Well I just can't do that - I am old school I even iron my jeans and my T-tops. I don't happen to like the unmade bed look that many others rally round - but to each his own I say - so because I still iron shouldn't make me a target for someone else's scorn and laughter.

Where have people's christian charity and manners gone?

When I was sent this in an e-mail - other than thinking it was a bit tongue in cheek I never gave it much credence till today and now I too am in mourning.

The Death Of Common Sense

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; life isn't always fair; and maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. Common Sense declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a real beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust his wife, Discretion, his daughter, Responsibility, his son, Reason. He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers: I Know My Rights, I Want It Now, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

Weird Wednesday

Hello Everyone,

In light of my recent Bread Making class I took - I wanted to do a post for Homemade Bread Day, November 17th, but I was in bed most of the day with a beastly headache - so I missed it. Since today is only the 18th, I decided I'd go ahead and post about it any way. Above you see the cover page to the little cook book we were given on our last day of class, It contained all the recipes we made over the three days we had class.
The class itself was kind of a disaster as the teacher was always unprepared and tried to teach us more things than there was time for in each class. Her favorite quote was "I thrive in chaos" -
She really didn't care that most of us students don't thrive on chaos and like things a little more organized. I did glean a few good tips, so I feel that all was not lost.
Above is a recipe for the bread doves we made - my doves turned out much better than my cornucopia so I thought I'd share them with you. I plan to make some for Thanksgiving. Also on this page is a recipe for play dough. Hope you enjoy.

I went to a couple of Garage sales and an Estate sale within the last two weeks I thought I'd share all my finds with you.

A large assortment of used cards - some books from the 1940's and 1950's, an old unmatched salt shaker and a couple of small decorative bottles.

Here I got many old Child Life magazines from the early 1950's and some other magazines From the late 1940's. I also got these two little girl dresses for $1.00/pair what a deal. I also got a large stash of vintage flowers and butterflies.

Aren't those dresses just the cutest, thing you ever saw.

On a side note I just wanted to say that Genghis has adjusted better than we could have hoped to his night time exile to the basement. He goes down about 1:30 am when Sir Knight heads to bed and is usually let back upstairs about 9:00am when I wake up (some days its even earlier); And he gets plenty of hugs, pets and rubs through the day - so he knows he is loved. As for me once I got over my bout with the flu, I seem to be doing a little better fibromyalgia wise with more sleep.

I know this post has been kind of all over the place - but I did warn you it was weird wednesday.

Veterans Day Reverie

Hello Everyone,

Just a short post to offer to all the veterans a very big thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

They Did Their Share
On Veteran’s Day we honor
Soldiers who protect our nation.
For their service as our warriors,
They deserve our admiration.
Some of them were drafted;
Some were volunteers;
For some it was just yesterday;
For some it’s been many years;
In the jungle or the desert,
On land or on the sea,
They did whatever was assigned
To produce a victory.
Some came back; some didn’t.
They defended us everywhere.
Some saw combat; some rode a desk;
All of them did their share.
No matter what the duty,
For low pay and little glory,
These soldiers gave up normal lives,
For duties mundane and gory.
Let every veteran be honored;
Don’t let politics get in the way.
Without them, freedom would have died;
What they did, we can’t repay.
We owe so much to them,
Who kept us safe from terror,
So when we see a uniform,
Let’s say "thank you" to every wearer.
By Joanna Fuchs

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. . . . President John Fitgerald Kennedy

A Birthday Bash

Hello everyone,
It's a bright beautiful morning and a perfect day for a Birthday Party. Who's birthday is it ? Well it's not mine or Genghis's and its not Sir Knight's; but he is one of the reasons we celebrate it every year. Ok, I won't leave you in suspense any longer. Today, November 10th, is the birthday of the United States Marine Corps.

My Little Cherished Teddie above as well as the Marine pin are my everyday reminders of these brave men and the brotherhood they share with their fellow Marines. My Dad was a member of that brotherhood, having served his country with them during WWII as well as Korea; and my Dear Sir Knight also is a part of this brotherhood having served his country with them in Vietnam.
It has been a privilege and an honor to know both these men.

This is my Dad all dressed up and standing proud in His Dress Blues.

This is my Dad and his favorite girl doing the town in Chicago, while he was stationed at Navy Pier. Yep, when the war was over he came back and married her and she is of course my mother.
The Little Bear and Mug are Sir Knights and my souvenirs from when we attended the Marine Corps Ball (Birthday Party), a week after we got married.

No Pictures of Sir Knight in Uniform you ask? Well no, unfortunately there aren't any. You see with Veitnam being such an unpopular war - and all - there was no hero's welcome for the returning warriors back then. People didn't send out nice care packages with golf games or all kinds of Christmas cards and stuff to our boys overseas - the only boxes I remember being collected for them was for soap, (SOS - send over soap) pretty exciting stuff, huh. The war was unpopular, so they took it out on the boys who were just doing their duty to God and Country. Heck the Veterans of Foreign wars even refused to let them join when they got home - because Vietnam wasn't a true war.

The draft dodgers got more sympathy from the American people than our returning soldier. - go figure

Sir Knight disposed of all his pictures and momentos in the circular file, moved on with his life, and tried to forget about the whole mess.

Our wish to all the Marines, past and present, who uphold the finest traditions of the Corps... Happy Birthday.

Good afternoon to one and all,

Well Halloween 2009 is just a pleasant memory. As I carefully take down all the decorations I remember all the fun we had planning our spooktackular blog party and all the wonderful visitors we had that day and how we appreciated each and every comment left for us. What fun that was. We have even started talking about how we might be decorating for next years gala.

Genghis may have hid for most of the party but he really got into the arrival of each and every trick or treater, checking them and their costumes out and giving his headbut seal of approval and demanding to be petted. He is such a social butterfly - he just loves when company is coming - more people to love and adore him (I guess). Win their hearts he does - though not in a pushy way but by being responsive at the right time when they are ready to lavish him with attention.

Here in the midwest it was time to set our clocks back, for daylight savings time has ended and we move into those darker days of late fall and then winter. It would have been better if I could have enjoyed the extra hour of sleep but Genghis is still running on the old time and woke me up at 4:15am as usually even if the clock differed with him.

Today Sir Knight is busy putting a door up on the way into the basement. It is an awkward little area right by the back door with two doors getting in each others way. We took that door down years ago when we moved in here for convenience as well as astetics. Now however, with Genghis's proclivity for early morning rising and his attitude of "when I'm up, everyone should be up" we feel a real need to once again have a door there so Genghis can stay in the basement apartment till we are awake and moving then he can come up and join us. I know this sounds terrible and it really does break my heart a bit but I have enough problems with insomnia and do not function well on only 2 or 3 hours of sleep each night. Sir Knight sleeps through most things - but even his sleep has been cut short as of late and we can't have him falling asleep on his job.
(He works second shift and doest get home till after midnight, then an hour or so to relax before hitting the bed. So 4:15am is a terrible time to have to rise and shine).

I keep telling my self that since our basement is a nice finished basement that it shouldn't be too hard on Genghis - but I know he will be lonely - just hope and pray that he doesn't cry and caterwaul all night - I know my determination and resolve would evaporate if he did.

Well I need to do a couple loads of laundry so I best bring this to a close.

Happy Halloween!!!

Hello Everybody,

I helped Pellie and Sir Knight pass out the treats to all the little ghost, goblins, ghouls and fairy princesses and I had such a good time.

Then this evening I made a midnight run to the cemetery to gather some graveyard dirt, to use in some of my potions. And look at me dressed in my wizy robes; I wasn't even scared. Whoooooooo took this picture????? muhaha!!!!
Trick or Threat! smell my paws.
I'm the cutest wizard you ever saw.

Hey! Hi there,

you are getting sleepy - you will forget how long it been since I last visited

Hey Everybody it's me Genghis Khat,

I know it's been a long time since I wrote here on this blog thingy; but Pellie has not been feeling well and when she is on the computer it's for such a short time I don't have time to get my thoughts together much less do my post.

So anyway she is busy working on some sort of bread book - she said she is inspired by this class she is taking. I know she does not need much to inspire her to play with her paper scraps and make glittery things. Just as long as she's happy and left the computer on for me - we both can be happy.

I have missed visiting with all my kitty friends but I will try to get it done.

According to Purina Petcentric today is National Cat Day - "a holiday to celebrate cats for their unconditional love and companionship. Yep, Pellie has really been giving me lots of pets and hugs today and even a couple of my favorite treats - Chicken Pitter Patters. Yum.

I was kind of surprised about this cuz I have been waking wake her up really early in the mornings lately and Sir Knight tells me I shouldn't do this when she doesn't feel good. But I can't seem to help myself. I wake up and am ready to play and I really want her around so I go jump on and off the bed and her chest till she opens her eyes. I know she waits up late for Sir Knight to come home from work while I sleep but like I said I just cant help myself.

I picture myself as this this perfect little kitty - but I know I'm not - yet Pellie loves me any way. Yea!!!

So are all you guy and gals ready for Howls and Screams? We are and I can hardly wait. I love to see all the kids come up to the door in their costumes. It is so exciting. I'm glad I'm not a black cat though- Petcentric says this is a dangerous time of year for black cats -cuz peoples are scared of them at Halloween and try to hurt them. I guess that was why my brofur Dale never cared for all the fun and he would just go to sleep in the basement till it was all over.

Oh boy I was so excited the other day - I was outside playing and a mouse entered into my domicile. So I stalked it and very stealthly attacked it, killed it and took it to show Pellie in the house. She wasn't too happy about my big game I hunted up and Sir Knight made me drop it from my mouth, then he took it and disposed of it in the outside trash bin.
"Better to have hunted and have it taken away than to never have hunted at all" I guess?

Well its time for my nap, but first I better go sit among Pellie's paper things for a little bit so she knows I'm here.


A cat purrs when it's happy, meows when it wants attention, and is silent when planning its next move.

Happy Howls and Screams to all my wonderful friends.

It was a shop till you drop weekend.

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all doing well and had a wonderful weekend. Without even planing it ours turned out to be a weekend of shopping.

I signed up for a bread making class at our local college extension and didn't want to take all my antique baking supplies, we use at home, so the first place we headed was to the dollar store.
And picked up the cute little ensemble you see above. Oh I know it's not designed to last a lifetime but if it just makes it thorough the three classes I'll be happy. In one of the classes we are suppose to make a bread cornucopia - I'm kind of all thumbs in the kitchen so I hope it turns out well. Wish me luck.

The biggest surprise of our shopping day was when we headed over to Best Buy. Well that wasn't the surprise and I thought nothing of it because Sir Knight always loves to browse around there. We perused most all the merchandise and the computers just looking - not buying - then out of the blue Sir Knight picked this little baby up and bought it for me as a Halloween present. How wonderful is that? (Insert me doing happy dance here.) I finally got an external hard drive to back up my wealth of pictures stored on this computer and on my old computer - which we setup in the basement for when the grandchildren come over and want to play their online games. Because I don't let anyone but Sir Knight and myself use the new computer - I mean it's not even a year old yet.

As you can imagine; the first thing I did when we were home was to make copies of all the pictures on the old computer and transfered them to my new computer. As soon as I am finished going through them weeding out duplicates and such, I will again copy them all over to the hard drive for safe keeping. Then I can remove them all together form the old computer; which should make the grandchildren happy too because once all the pictures and documents are off the old computer - there will be more memory available for their game playing. So this little black book is making many people sooooo happy.

Sir Knight doesn't think I'll fill this puppy up - Ha! I bet I will.

Well I better get back to work .

Make a Difference Day

Hello everyone,
Well tomorrow is National Make a Difference Day. So I thought I'd post just a little bit about making a difference.

When I was healthy and actively working at my chosen profession - I always felt like I made a difference. Oh not in great shakes but in those little things, turning and fluffing the pillow of a bed fast patient, giving a soothing back rub or in finding the right little treat to entice a patient to eat.

But now I am retired and there are days that I really wonder what have I done lately that makes a difference to someone - anyone - besides my self?

Food for thought; I guess and something I feel I really need to think about today & tomorrow, and hopefully get ignited with a passion that will kick me in the rear and into action.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.


Friday, October 16, 2009
