Stories, events and life in general from Miss Kitty's point of view

Thursday

An exciting day it was



Each morning before getting out of bed, dad quickly checks his emails on the phone. There was a message in German from Alexandra in Switzerland, letting him know there was something for him at her blog.


In the meantime he had breakfast and I had my morning snack, which was followed by a visit to the garden since there was no frost outside like the last previous days. It was still rather cold but the morning’s golden light that came skittering across the hills ridge and rooftops was a little warming when it finally landed upon me.




For now the days will be few for going outside until winter reaches its zenith and then it will be still several more weeks before the temperatures begin to rise again.







When I came back in, dad was also finished with breakfast and together we went back upstairs to the computer. Dad was clueless because he did not check until now what it was Alexandra had in store for us.


With great excitement dad told me all about the award I had received. I quickly had to inspect the monitor and see for myself.



Thank you Alexandra


Since the award comes with a condition that it should be passed along, dad and I had a long discussion as to restoring value and honor to the award by following Alexandra’s example of limiting the nominees. We decided to keep it to three, like in the Olympics. Since there are a number of blogs we are considering, we will release the winners for the ‘One Lovely Blog Award’ with our next post.


Alexandra has a wonderful blog, she not only talks about her cat, but also of per passion for gardening and decorating the house for the holiday season. She also does volunteer work at the local animal shelter, taking exceptional photographs of the animals in need of a home. I enjoy visiting her site to see what she is up to and I am never disappointed.

So please visit her blog Gwundergarten and you will be surprised on several levels. As I already mentioned, her blog is diverse with varied interests and you do not have to know German to read her posts since the blog is bilingual. 




Remember there is still some time left to participate in the
calendar bookmark photo contest.

Miss Kitty, congratulations on your lovely award! The mom peeked at Alexandra's blog and it looks wonderful.

BTW, we're so impressed you don't snarl at the camera, or run away, like certain kitties in our house we could name....

Dearest Miss Kitty,
I can't imagine anyone more deserving of the "Lovely Blog" award.
You and your Daddy make blog-land that much lovlier, you with your beautiful and serene presence and your Daddy with his excellent artwork and generosity in sharing with others.
Thanks to both of you!

BTW He took an excellent picture of you in the leaves and grass. The colors of your surroundings enhance the beauty of your fur.

Congratulations!

Oh Miss Kitty!

it was so wonderful to hear from you the other day... I was surprised , delighted and very amused to think that your Dad has been cooking up something new over there at your house.... well ... speaking of cooking up.... tell him his thanks-giving banquet was the bestest thing I ever heard of!
I just read your little story and it was lovely to discover more about you.
I hope you are keeping your eye on your Dad ...getting him to relax...and do tell him a very big hello and all good things from down under!

Liebe Miss Kitty, wie unglaublich schön Dein Fell immer glänzt in der Sonne! Heidi Klumm ist direkt langweilig gegen Dich:-)) Kein Wunder also, dass Du als Katzen-Supermodell einen tollen award erhalten hast. Und Daddy natürlich auch, denn er macht seinen job, Dich angemessen zu päsentieren, wirklich sehr sehr gut! So, und nun werde ich mir mal diesen blog anschauen, der Euch so gut gefällt. Ich wünsche Euch noch einen schönen Tag und sende viele liebe Grüße von Luzia.

Congratulations on your award, Miss Kitty! Your blog is indeed a lovely one, and we always love visiting you and your dad here.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm sorry I've been so busy with life that I've been unable to make it here Miss Kitty. For that I apologize. Bleubeard has been on me to visit your blog, but time has not been on my side lately.

But I'm glad to see you were able to get out for a few minutes in the garden. Bleubeard and I put my garden to bed on the last warm day of the year (or I suspect the last warm day). It's now so cold, neither of us wants to go outside.

I hope all is well with you, and your dad. I'll be doing some work on my blog after the first of the year and I'll be talking to him when I do. Stay warm and dry.
