Meeko Caught Again and Awards

Meeko got caught again. Here he is taking a snooze on the couch with his teddy bear. I didn't have the heart to wake him, but really don't like him getting on the furniture. He is usually quite good about it unless the boys are here. Maybe he was feeling a bit insecure? Animals have feelings and sometimes it's hard to guess what they are thinking. Of course they can't tell us, so it is a guestimate on our part.

Hootin' Anni wanted to see a photo of my Tinkerbell attitude t-shirt that I picked up in Disney World in 2005. Here it is Anni. I love it and wanted to get another one like it when we were in Florida in January. Alas, they didn't have them. The decal on this one is starting to crack but I wear it a lot. It's my favorite t-shirt.

I have been honored with some awards recently. The first one is from Hootin' Anni and I absolutely LOVE it. Anni is very talented and makes beautiful graphics. If you've never visited her blog, be sure to follow the link above. She always has something interesting and Anni is a LOT of fun too.
Thank you, dear friend. You have a wonderful and vivid imagination. I will add this to my awards page and display it with pride

Stephanie at Mississippi Songbird awarded me a couple of awards which are beautiful. I love them both and will display them with pride. Thank you, Stephanie. I'm so glad we met recently and that our friendship is blossoming.

Both of you ladies make my day and I'm blessed to have both of you as friends. Thanks once again for your generosity.

Good Friday was a very quiet day here at the homestead. Hubby watched a little tv and I quietly reflected on the meaning of the day. Be sure to spend time with your family this weekend. Reflect on the meaning of the Easter holiday and enjoy the love and laughter of friends and family. ~Blessings, Mary~

  7. I absolutely LOVE the t-shirt Mary!! And I'm so glad you got a photo of it to share with us. It's darling. And says it all, doesn't it? Love it.

    And Meeko...what can I say? I'm an old softie when it comes to critters. Now this photo takes the cake. It's precious. I wouldn't want to disturb him or not. You just gotta love 'em.

  8. Love the picture of Meeko. Congrats. on the new awards, and have a Happy and Blessed Easter, Mary.



  9. haha - Meeko catching a snooze..

    I think animals have a special attraction to a sofa - not only is it soft and comfy - but full of its familie's scents. I think the scents give the animals comfort.

    Happy Easter to you and yours, Mary!

  10. Mary ~ I just wanted to stop by and say "HI" and wish you a Happy Easter. I do see from a couple of your earlier post responses that we have a couple of blogging buddies in common. Thanks for the nice comments on my last blog post about the Sandhill Cranes. Please feel free to stop by ANYTIME! ~ And have a GREAT Easter! ~ jb///

  11. Meeko is adorable! I wouldn't wake him either. Congrats on the awards! I love the Ewe Rock one that is sooooooo cute! That T-shirt rocks! (I've picked that word up from the younger bloggers! ha!) I love Tinkerbell, she is my favorite Dis*ney character and I always get something with her on it when I am there. Never saw that shirt or I would have picked it up, it is very fitting around here at times! (just ask hubby!)

    Have a wonderful blessed Easter Mary as you reflect on the day!

  12. I try to keep Smokey on the leather or in the one chair but it is useless. I just have to use the lint roller on the hair problem. I have a towel on the one chair and change it often. Alas, loving a pet means putting up with some little things, I guess.

    I think it is so sweet that he sleeps with his bear, makes him feel good.

  13. Hey girl-love the picture.

    Glad ya'll have had a peaceful day. We did too. Church and then dinner on the grounds and then home for a long nap. :)

    Happy Resurrection Sunday!
