New Addition to the Family

For this Whiskers on Wednesday, I would like to introduce you to the newest member of our family. My mom and dad got a kitten: Her name is probably going to be Georgi, although they just brought her home last… Continue Reading →

Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2010

Hope you all had a great Book Blogger Appreciation Week. I was so happy to be involved with the design for BBAW and sorry I wasn’t able to participate more. Congratulations to all the nominees, winners, giveaway recipients, and big… Continue Reading →

Video: Cat Meets Bunny

I compiled this from video clips I took on the second day of Pancake’s visit. Henry is a little better but still doesn’t like when the bunny hops straight at him. P.S. You know how YouTube suggests similar videos to… Continue Reading →

Happy Whiskers on Wednesday!

When the Humans Are Away…

Do you ever wonder what kind of shenanigans and adventures your pets get up to when you’re not home? I can tell you with 99.9% certainty that Henry does exactly this: Happy Whiskers on Wednesday to the other humans out… Continue Reading →

Tiger in a Bag

Henry’s favourite toy is a large, crinkly, plastic bag. He likes to sit in them and just watch me, but he also loves to play in them too. I should remember to take a video next time he’s playing! Happy… Continue Reading →

Arrr! Pirate Cat!

Here's winking at you babe ;) Occasionally Henry gets all squinty in one of his eyes. I’ve taken him to the vet and he doesn’t have a scratch on the cornea or anything. I think sometimes he just gets a… Continue Reading →

Mailbox Monday – Value Village books

Last week CW and I went to Value Village to look for some books for him. Value Village has secondhand books priced on a sliding scale which depends on the original cover price. All hardcovers at $3.99, and then fiction… Continue Reading →

Does this Wednesday make my Whiskers look big?

Does this box make my butt look big? Henry is a simple cat; he likes crumpled paper, plastic bags, and cardboard boxes. I usually have one for him that’s an appropriate size, but when I finished unpacking his cat food… Continue Reading →

Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Essentially, people share what books that they got in their mailboxes over the past week. I think it’s much more exciting to talk about all… Continue Reading →

Dogs on Thursday from across The Pond

CW also sent me these pictures of Oscar, an Old English Sheep Dog. From the sounds of it, he’s excelling on lead and much better behaved during walks than his brother Harvey.

Whiskers from across The Pond

CW sent me some photos of his mum’s cats chilling out at the house. Happy Whiskers on Wednesday!! This is Minstrel. I prefer to call him Poofa because I don’t think his name suits him. He’s the newest edition to… Continue Reading →

Knitted Snakeys for Charity

I’ve mentioned several times that Henry is a yarn snob, so I knit him a new snakey out of 100% wool scraps (Cascade 220). Once I finished his snakey, I moved on to the three snakes I’ve committed to knit… Continue Reading →

Whiskers Nurse

Last week I was home sick with a bit of a stomach bug. Henry made sure to take good care of me and give me lots of snuggles. Please excuse the craptastic photos as I was using PhotoBooth on my… Continue Reading →

Knit & Crochet Blog Week: Day 7

What a Yarn! There‚Äôs one love that we all share: yarn. Blog about a particular yarn you have used in the past or own in your stash, or perhaps one that you covet from afar. If it is a yarn… Continue Reading →

Knit & Crochet Blog Week: Day 6

Revisit a past FO (finished object): Bring the fortune and life of a past finished project up to the present. Document the current state and use of an object you have knitted or crocheted, whether it is the hat your… Continue Reading →

Knit & Crochet Blog Week: Day One

Yarnpiggy posted about Knit & Crochet Blog Week 2010 last week sometime and piqued my interest. Eskimimi Knits is hosting the first inaugural Knit & Crochet Blog Week to celebrate fibre bloggers and talk about our shared passion. There are… Continue Reading →

National Poetry Month Blog Tour

I’m honoured and excited to be a part of Serena’s National Poetry Month Blog Tour 2010. Hopefully this will be the first of many successful literary blog tours! I applied to take part to showcase Canada’s (particularly BC and Vancouver’s)… Continue Reading →

Whiskers with Windows

Henry loves watching the outdoors. He’s not suited to be outdoors unattended, so I often boost him onto the windowsill in my bedroom. At my parents’ house, he used to sit for hours in my office chair rolled up to… Continue Reading →

Whiskers on Wednesday

Henry isn’t up for Whiskers on Wednesday, so his cousin Sasafrass (my sister’s cat) is stepping in. At family dinner last Sunday my sister had her dressed in a lovely ruffle. Sasafrass absolutely loved her ruffle. It was a soft… Continue Reading →

Book Review :: Fall On Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald

I know this post should have gone up sooner since the debates for Canada Reads begin today… but I procrastinated reading Fall On Your Knees and procrastinating writing this review. Why did I procrastinate? Tammy kept saying, “It’s so depressing,… Continue Reading →

Oscar Predictions (updated with wins)

My friends Nigel, Deepinder, and I have been voting on the Oscars each year since 2003 (I think). One of these days I swear we’re going to have an Oscar party! Bascially we vote beforehand and then keep track who… Continue Reading →

Book Review :: Generation X by Douglas Coupland

Honestly, I don’t get what the big deal is about Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture. Although I found the writing witty I didn’t really get the point. Besides “understanding” the generation and telling these 20-somethings’ story, what was… Continue Reading →

Knitted Kitty, Sleeping Cowl

As you may know, Henry is a yarn snob. He only fondles fibres with 100% natural content. Therefore, I believed my cowl being knit with Nashua Ivy (50% alpaca, 45% merino, 5% synthetic) was safe. I thought wrong: Fortunately he… Continue Reading →

Dogs on Thursday from across the Pond

CW snapped this photo of Oscar and sent it to me just for Dogs On Thursday! (Isn’t he a keeper? CW I mean… oh I guess Oscar’s a keeper too. He’s a sweetheart.) Anyway, Oscar was sulking because he’d just… Continue Reading →
