Blah Blah Blahs

So, I know I’m supposed to be UP and JUMPIN’ and RUNNING around like a crazed weasel after reading the morning news, but right now, what I’m feeling more than anything and more than ever are the blahs. Maybe because it’s winter.  Blahs happen then, or at least to me.  But it’s okay, because it builds character, whatever that is, to be able to bust your blahs and reach a higher plane of consciousness in...

Girl Toys

DO I EVER HAVE TOYS LIKE THOSE? So where are they, mama? Well, I am wondering about my good friend, Mya, and her amazing doggy bed full of wonders.  Her mama found her one morning in her bed among all her toys that she had arranged nicely in her little abode!  Mya, I mean, not her mama.  I think she did a bang-up job, don’t you?  I think my favorite is the huge rat behind...

Teeth Time

HEY, DON’T YOU TOUCH MY IVORIES!!!  I can do a lot with two teeth! Hey, THEY talk about having my teeth cleaned but I’m not big on whatever they do to put you OUT during the ordeal, plus I don’t have many teeth and I’m afraid they might steal some of my remaining chompers. BUT, mama and papa are off today to get THEIR teeth done.  I think just to check that they are still...

Sticks and Stones

Our president said WHAT? Mama says this may be dating her, but she remembers, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” WRONG. Words do matter, especially when speaking of other countries less fortunate than our very rich USA.  What if someone called your little town the word beginning with ‘s’ that T used about poor countries?  Outrageous. Okay, basta with politics, but really, are there no manners,...

The Market’s UP

Hey, not THAT market with all the graphs and things.  I mean our open market that happens on Sundays around here.  Also Wednesdays. And there is the Cheese Lady who has some pretty nice things in her little truck. But because of the winds and last night’s rain, we weren’t sure there would BE a market today. BUT…sun is breaking through and I see mama putting on rain boots so maybe I’ll get my food...

Winded

WHAT’S THAT NOISE OUTSIDE?  I’M FEELING WINDED BY THE WIND! As in LOTS of wind out there.  Mama has been cuddling me because the sound of so much wind is a bit disturbing to this kitty at times.  The windows rattle, the outside furniture blows around, the lemons and kiwis are blown off the tree!  It’s WILD around here. So this is my cuddle blog until Old Mr. Wind blows out!  A few weeks...

IMAGES..GRRRRRRRRR

TAKE THAT, COMPUTER! I KICK-BOXED MY COMPUTER YESTERDAY WHEN THE PHOTO OF THE TORTILLA GAVE ME A HASSLE!! (I think that worked.) Well, when you want to give a chef his due and say a little about his WONDERFUL tortilla and the %&#^%#&%image of the tortilla will NOT copy and paste, you really are doing a disservice to the star of the blog. SO sorry, JL, that the picture was only put in hours after...

Chef du Jour

(I’d better clean this up before maman sees it…) Well, I am drooling into the computer, which is not exactly good for it, mama says, but this tortilla of Jean-Luc (Mya’s papa) is making us all crazy.  Especially since we are NOT in Nice where the chef lives and cannot partake of his delectable specialty. Mama says it’s GREAT when the man in the family makes dinner sometimes, and this is definitely a go around...

King Cake

Here’s how it works.  When mama is in there inventing a new way to make galette des roi, I chill. I mean why should I be the sous chef when all she wants is someone to TASTE it when it’s done and let her know how it went down, right? Hey, I’M HERE, maman (we’re back in France and I have to practice my French), I’M HERE. Toss one my way, okay?  You DID...

Body Language

Well, mama went and did it.  Tweaked another recipe for a lunch we are having tomorrow.  Note the use of ‘we’….I am the star attraction, as always, and everyone cuddles and pets me and then I disappear, having made an unforgettable impression on the guests. In my dreams.  I make an impression all right! Just yesterday a distant friend came by and saw me and said to me, “Ah, Loulou, you’re back and have your...
