or not – Weekly Photo Challenge | Refuge

February 18, 2011 44 comments

I’m sending you something besides an update to the RandomBlog2011 Challenge for a change. I like having some other fun too! There is nothing bugging me today!

I just saw Barb19‘s blog and I remembered that I had this great photo of my cat. Cinnamon will be 19 years old this July 24th and I’ve had her since the minute she was born. She was the runt of the 4 kittens in the litter.

Cinnamon's Refuge

Cinnamon loves working her way into the layers of the comforter. Once I realized this I always made sure that it was handy for her to sleep in. It used to be my daughter’s comforter when she was younger but it’s now Cinnamon’s.

Cinnamon knows she is not allowed up on the sofa unless there is another throw or blanket and when she wants up she will just sit on the floor in front of me until I notice her. As soon as the throw is on the sofa, up she jumps to snuggle up beside me. Unfortunately she has never been a lap cat and this as close as she allows me to get to her. If I try to pick her up, I risk being clawed which makes visits to the vet real fun trying to get her into the carrier.

Almost there!


It’s been an exciting week and the final days are ahead of us. There is nothing bugging me today!

Just a quick post this time, I promise. I found more new blogs I want to read and need to do some other work.

I know it’s not over yet but I do want to thank everyone who is taking part in the RandomBlog2011 Challenge. The response from the online community of bloggers has been fantastic and being featured on The Daily Post sure did help. Thank you! 🙂

Many of the blogging buddies know that MyEnglishThoughts has been busy working the last few weeks and has not had much time to write on her blog. She had some time off this week and she was chosen by hugmamma for an interview.

Barb19 – Passionate About Pets, a dear friend of mine and a new blogger is featured this week over at Mirth and Motivation.

Blogs I’ve Visited

hugmamma – MIND, BODY and SOUL – Interview with MyEnglishThoughts

mochafrappe – Mochafrappe for me & Inside my Mind

Next-Door Nature


Posky – Posky, Comics and Such

Elzbieta Ewdowiak’s blog

In case you missed it, there was a poll yesterday asking how any blogs you’re reading daily. The poll has also been added to the Polls page. If you haven’t already taken it please take a minute and the results will be reported at the end of the challenge.

I did it, I kept it short today.

There is nothing bugging me today!
