This and That







  1. The boys got new winter coats.  I call them my little Eskimos now. :)
  2. Eggs, over easy, on ham and toasted honey oat bread.
  3. Samantha doesn't just camouflage with snow while outside, she thought she blended well with those Eskimo coats!
  4. Fun lunch in a fancy cup.
  5. Melting, only to freeze again tomorrow!
  6. Socks, supervising "Bot" for me. 
Are you doing the Random Acts of Kindness Adventure with me?
First posting is Friday!

    1. I'm loving the bot
      and use it a whole lot.
      Cats find him entertaining
      as he runs around cleaning.
      Sammy must want to join the marines
      as she loves to hide and slither like a sardine!
      lol....

      The bot must save you on the vacuum run a ton

  6. Cute Eskimos ~ and the kitty in the jacket was cute too. You like your eggs just like me. What a yummy breakfast, and lunch looked fun with those fish swimming around. Love the last picture...do they run when it starts moving??

    Wasn't expecting it, but my random act of kindness came to me... I didn't even have to leave home. Got a picture, and ready for Friday.

    1. You might not be able to tell by the photo, but Bot is moving there. The cats just sit and watch. It's very quiet.

      Love you have your act done for the week! I'll be out and about tomorrow so that should be fun. Must remember to take my camera with me.

  8. I found myself letting others in traffic on Saturday, leaving coupons on the shelves, and smiling at strangers.

    2. Wonderful, since you bring a smile to my face daily. (smiling) --- see?

      Also, I have done my random act of kindness and am looking forward to sharing it on Friday. It may make you laugh, I am warning you!

    3. A funny act of kindness? :) I am certainly looking forward to hearing about it!

      Delete
    4. Yes, it is quite funny. Bloody hilarious, actually. Too bad I don't have a blog to post photos. The story in itself is a good one, though. Kindness yet a funny experience in trying to give some. How did your kindness excursions go while you were out today? Any hints you might share?

      Delete
    5. I did pretty well today...it sure was a lot of fun! And no...no hints! lol....you have to wait until Friday! Well, I'll post Thursday night. :)

  11. I am going to have eggs and ham in the morning too! But mine will be on toasted caraway rye. The boys look very sweet in their new duds. I am looking for a new winter coat too - hopefully on sale!

    1. I have had my eggs on toasted rye....with ham....the flavor combo is really good! Enjoy!

      Their coats were on sale, too...and I had cash points (to Old Navy) which made one of them free! yippee!

  15. I love socks and bot!! Socks looks as though the robot is an alien that needs close supervision!! The goldfish crackers in the soup made me laugh, surely that has to be the most fun way to eat a goldfish cracker, actually floating in something!! xx

    1. It's pretty warm on their bus and they ride a long time, so I don't bundle them too much. Besides, they have hoods!

  20. Glad to see Socks standing guard over Bot. Looks altogether a bit suspicious of it.
    Love the breakfast - any left? lol
    The icicles look impressive. We have none at present but we are having another attack of heaving driving rain. I think on balance I prefer your icicles.

    1. What a soggy country you're living in! :) I suppose you don't have to worry about drought this summer. ha.

    2. Yes at least the water companies won't be moaning this year and imposing a hose pipe ban.
      You know it is so soggy a lot of people are complaining about aching joints, be them natural or artificial replacements. There is one passenger on the bus who has had two replacement knees, an replacement hip and is having the other hip done this year. She says apart from walking around with very little she started out with she is in very severe pain and puts a lot of it down to the weather.
