Favorite Thing Friday: Simon’s Cat “Washed Up”

Standard

Simon’s Cat is still one of my favorite things. A new cartoon was recently posted on the Simon’s Cat youtube channel and it is just too cute. I especially liked it because one of my cats is always in the laundry basket. Whether it’s empty or full of clean clothes, it’s her favorite place to take a nap.

 

In fact, my little fuzzball is all curled up in the laundry basket right now!

I Knew It!

Standard

My brain really is out to get me! Or at the very least mess with me until I go completely insane.

I saw this last night and thought it was so funny.  Especially, since I just read a passage in Jonah Lehrer’s book, Imagine: How Creativity Works, that explains how creative brain activity hits a peak right before sleep.  So, I guess there’s an actual scientific reason why I keep a notebook (or four) on my nightstand.

It’s The Little Things

Standard

Earlier this week, my husband and I celebrated our eighth wedding anniversary and thirteen years together. Yes, both milestones really do fall on the same day! We did not have a big wedding, which means we don’t have huge anniversary celebrations or spoil ourselves with super expensive dinners. Instead, its important to us to make each day count.  I don’t need jewelry or a bouquet of roses to know he loves me, because he shows me every day by being thoughtful.

When he does give me a gift, it’s usually something that makes me laugh or ties into something I mentioned weeks ago.  This year, he made me smile by drawing one of my very favorite things: Simon’s Cat.  He sketched a scene from a cartoon entitled “Sticky Tape,” because he knows it’s a video I adore and watch repeatedly.

How cute is that?

He also threw in an adorable card (with pugs!) and some double-stick tape so I can make some great new collages.  I’ll take a gift like this over flowers any day!

It’s the little things that keep a marriage strong!

p.s. I got him a long overdue back rub and total authority over the remote control.  As a bonus, I watched Top Shot with him without asking if we could change the channel.
