This would be Mercedes’ nose. For such a tiny cat (6 lbs.), her nose could be classified as a honker. Especially when this is what you see when you first open your eyes in the morning (not to mention the tuna breath).
Creativity seems to be in short supply with me today, but I give you a lady bug to represent something small.
HALF OF SOMETHING
I tried and tried to be creative on this one and nothing was coming to mind. Then the light bulb went off; I had an a-ha moment and thought that a half moon might be worthy of SPF (wish I had taken the picture though).
Something Big-This was our "Girls Night" dinner. Big calories here baby!
Something Small-From a perspective standpoint I tried to make this something big. But then it came out looking kind of small. So I'm killing two birds with one stone. These are the flowers my boss sent me for Admin. Asst's Day. First time he's done anything, FOR ANYONE. This is a small gesture on his part, but it made a big impact on me!
Half of Something-That would be me, this morning, HALF DRESSED! No school today, so no kids to get up and out. More time for me!
Did you play?
G2 and a friend decided that they wanted to check out the new stadium they will be playing in next year. This is outside the stadium.
He is such a Ham! He took his football so they could try out the field.
It is probably a good thing he doesn't want to be an attorney anymore, he certainly needs to learn the golden rule of "leave no evidence" behind.
Oh and yes they were caught by the police. Fortunately for them, he just made the boys leave.
Yep, you guessed it Carrie joined us. Of course Mercedes LOVED her because she came bearing gifts (I’ll come back to this part). As usual, Sheri’s margaritas were STRONG, but not as bad as the last time. The food and the company were great as always, I had to introduce Carrie to Lewi and can you believe she actually touched him (yuck!), and even Sheri got brave and touched him, as for myself...NOT A CHANCE! (note to self...keep camara in hand so as not to have to touch the lizard).
Carrie came bearing gifts; she hit the nail on the head and appealed to our pyro side with some wonderful Yankee tea lights. But the most popular gift was the treats she brought to Mercedes. The package said "Temptations", but Carrie kept on calling it “kitty crack” (and she was right).
Mercedes loved the “kitty crack” so much that after everyone went home, she knocked them off of the table and dragged them beneath the coffee table. She then fell asleep on them until I went to bed…THANKS CARRIE!
My cat is now addicted!
The wonderful & witty Kristine at Random and odd said "It's time for Stuff Portrait Friday!"
"Stuff Portrait Friday-what's that?"
It's easy, it's fun, and everyone who wants to can play. This game is for everyone. Encourage your players to play and comment on your blog if they played so you can get to know your readers. If you want to send them over here to let me know they played, Great!
Stuff Portrait Friday: April 21st, 2006 - Your Initials
1. Sheri - S - I'm going to take a picture of something that starts with a S — You take your first initial and take a picture of something…
2. Middle initial - Yep, now take a picture of something that starts with your middle initial
3. Last name initial - Yes…it’s this easy!
Here we go!
S is for......supper (mmmm, chicken pot pie) and I cheated cause S also stands for "self portrait"
A is for.......apple of course (my hubs wouldn't let me post a pic of my arse!)
(I think this pic turned out pretty cool)
K is for.......hmm, I thought Knuckle, then I thought kick in the pants, but best of all, KIDS! Here are two of my three after eating Easter cupcakes!
So there you have it.......Give me a "S", give me an "A", give me a "K"......What do you have?
Did you play?
Although this is really not a macro close up, it is about as close as I’m getting to G2’s lizard. Meet Lewi, the lizard. He has been in our home for seven years. God only knows how this thing is still alive because I won’t care for it. He used to be in the living room in a 20 gallon tank, but now that he requires an 80 gallon tank his home is the boy’s room. Now if you can imagine, filthy room, teenager, science experiments, and Lewi poop. Hmmmm mmmmm can’t you just imagine how it smells in there.
I have posted this one before but, this is Mercedes high on catnip. I tried to take the picture with a flash and she got that “deer in the headlights” look.
Since I know I could never compete with Kristine or Kami I’m going to use “perspective” loosely. Here you see Mercedes attacking and eating my mouse, my computer’s mouse; not the furry, breathing, crawly kind. If she saw one of those, she would probably go hide under the bed. So here is a perspective of our Supreme Mouser!
