  9. Ahhh..thank YOU for the award!! I gotta think about the 10 things...hmm..Only 10... :) I look forward to getting it posted!

    Thanks Madi and Mom!

  10. Chocolate day? You do realize many of your followers are DOGS, right? BOL What about cats, Madi, can you have chocolate? I need to find out, so I can give my kat-siblings some.
    Go ahead Mom, try One World One Heart. If you want to join, you need to do a bit of work, but it's not bad. If you don't wish to join, shop around, leave comments to the blogs that offer the best treats (I mean presents) and wait for the prizes :)
    Finally, thank you both Madi and Mom for the lovely and meaningful award, I like the scientific approach deal.

  11. I Madi

    Congrats on your award.

    Hay does your mom take you bird watching to ?
    I bet that would be something you would have in common, Although I bet you watch birds for different reasons though.

  12. Congrats on your award! And there's actually a Chocolate Cake Day??!? Mom is so excited to hear that!!

  13. Chocolate Cake Day?? My grandma is going to love it!
    Congratulations on your Award!
    And thanks for sharing those things about you!
    Kisses and hugs

  14. I didn't even know there was a chocolate cake day. Doesn't that mean you're supposed to send a chocolate cake to all your friends? :)

  15. Madi & Mom,

    Congrats on your award and thanks for sharing it with us. Perfect timing as I'm getting an awards post ready for Thursday. I love #10 on your list, it's one of my favorite things too.

    Chocolate Cake Day, wow we will definitely celebrate that one. The little Grosbeak is so pretty.

    Purrs & Hugs,
    Cindi Lou and Judy

  16. Congratulations on your Sweet Award. We love bird watching too!

  17. Thank you so much Madi & Mom for that slice of chocolate cake. We were wondering if you have some fresh cream for us to have with it!
    Well we must tell you Madi that we are being abandoned with our Dad yet again this evening whilst our mum goes out and leaves us!
    She reckons that the very nice restaurant where she and the 'girls' meet should have some chocolate cake for her!
    We use the word 'girls' but these days it is more like 'old bags'!
    love and kisses

  19. YEAH! I made it over to collect my award! I LOVE IT! Thank you so much Madi, I'll post it tomorrow.

  20. Congrats on your wonderful award. My mom loves Birds and Blooms....and we like to watch the birds too. Well, she does, I prefer to nap.

  21. I am here from The Road to Here. Congratulations on the award! #10 on your list is perfect and is something that can be done everyday! I like your way of choosing tagees.

  22. Madi and Mom..congrats on your award. I am an AVID BIRD WATCHER. I saw my first Rose-Breasted Grosbeak last year. They returned again this year. I was in heaven. I will be posting some Bird pictures on my blog soon and don't forget The Great Backyard Bird Count that takes place on Feb 12th -15th. Much LOVE!

  23. Madi and Mom...it's so great to meet someone who understands the thrill of a first siting. I had about 8 male Grosbeaks and 4 Females and of course I grabbed one of my many field books to confirm the siting and then my camera and video camera and started snapping and videotaping. I have to go through my photos to see if I got anything good to share. I know I videotaped them because I had to get it on videotape just in case I thought I was going crazy. You saw waxwings??!!! How lucky are you!!??? Now when I get home I have to go through my bird pix to put together a bird post just for the bird lovers like you. It's so nice meeting you and folks like you. Much LOVE!

  24. P.S. looking forward to Madi's mug tomorrow...LOL!

  25. Madi and Mom...oh I can tell we are going to have a good time, you and me. My hubby and I went to a bird sanctuary in Jamaica where the hummingbirds just land on your fingers. I almost peed in my pants with excitement. Is that normal or what? What until you see some of those pictures. Then one day I saw my first Creeper. That was so awesome! I can tell we have lots to share. I'm going to be leaving in a half hour, though...one of my patients that I visit, has to have a lung biopsy so I want to be there for support. I will talk to you soon! Much Love!


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
Life is short, spend it with those who make you laugh
