Mundane Monday

I've been feeling kind of bad that I haven't been able to have any fun adventures with my boys this summer.  We went from a chilly spring to a VERY hot summer, so they've mostly been limited to short visits in the back yard.  According to the weather man, we're in for triple digits over the next 6 days, so it doesn't look like we'll be doing anything outside anytime soon unless we get up really early (which ain't happenin'!) or go really late at night.  

A perfect treat for them would be Frosty Paws, which they won from Corbin awhile back.  First, I couldn't figure out what I did with the coupons.  Found them, and now I can't find Frosty Paws here.  According to their facebook page store locator, no stores closer than a 100 mile radius sells them.  Guess I should've checked that out before entering the giveaway!  I'm gonna keep looking though!  I know Walmart used to sell them here.  If nothing else, maybe I can get them to do a special order.

I made Shiver and Chico some blueberry filled ice cubes this morning, and am just waiting for them to freeze up.  Normally they don't pay much attention to ice, but since they have blueberries in each cube, I'm hoping they'll notice and enjoy them.  It'll be a cool treat on a hot day!  I'm hoping they'll cooperate and let me get some pix to post.

Got this from here.

1.  What are your three favorite spices?

I never really thought about this before.  I guess curry, cinnamon, and oregano?  I also like garlic.  I'm not much of a cook, so I don't have very many spices in the pantry.  

2.  Which piece of furniture needs to be replaced next in your house?

There's actually 2 that I'd like replaced.  The first one would be my couch.  My mom gave me her old one when I moved in here.  She and I don't have the same taste in furniture, and I think it's really ugly.  I keep it covered so that no one ever has to see how bad it is.  

The second one is a rocking chair that a friend brought over as a housewarming gift.  She had just gotten all new furniture at her house, and brought this huge, hideous rocking chair over which had seen better days many years before!  I didn't want it, but didn't know how to turn her down without being rude.  Back before my kitteh died, he used to love to cuddle up on it.

I wish I could replace all of my furniture so that it matched and was of better quality.  Hopefully one of these days...

3.  If someone was having a wardrobe malfunction (hole, missing button, etc.), would you tell them?

I'd like to think so!  I'd certainly want someone to bring it to my attention if I did.  In a non-humiliating way, of course!

4.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.
I'm not a huge fan of shishkababs, but they're alright once in awhile.    I haven't had any in ages.  The picture makes me think of backyard summer BBQing.

Did you sign up for Christmas in July yet?  You've got until July 23rd, so get those entries in!!!  We've got 10 blogs joining us this year, with plenty of room for more!  Everyone's invited!  Thanks to Molly the Wally and Sarge's BCC for helping to spread the word.

If you have an independent pet store, wonder if they'd be more inclined to order the Frosty Paws for you.

Molly The Wally said...

Do stay cool. It is hot here too. LOL you should see our spice cupboards , there is pretty much nothing we don't have and don't use. Have a marvellous Monday and we will give a shout for Christmas in July on Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

That's a shame about the frostypaws, I'm sure they will love the frozen blueberries just as much though.
I am pretty sure all of our furniture needs replacing, LOL.

I was going to say what Kathy said - go ask your local et store if they would consider ordering Frosty Paws. My guy buys random things I suggest. Ok, your wardrobe malfunction question cracked me up because the other day a woman stopped on the train platform to tell me my shirt was on inside out. When the train pulled up, I ran into the bathroom in one of the cars to turn my shirt around! LOL!

Sagira said...

Oh my goodness...no frosty paws in your area? What the heck!

We have not seen Frosty Paws here either. We are getting really tired of the heat, it does make it hard to do much.
hugs
Bailey, Hazel & Greta
