Life is Good.....

Mom and I are very pleased to accept this lovely award from The Creek Cats and their Mom and Dixie the Lab. The mom of this bunch is a very devoted member of a crew of Cat rescuers on our beautiful NC coast. She and other volunteers work tirelessly to trap feral cats for spaying/neutering and vaccinations.
This group of volunteers continues to feed the feral colonies too. We commend them for their work for our furry friends.

This award is for Moms and Dads who blog help their beloved felines and K9's blog. Mom is supposed to answer the following questions then pass the award on to others. Mom and I would like to offer it to all Moms/Dads of felines and K9's. Mom isn't sure where the questions originated but we are thinking possibly across the pond...she isn't familiar with some of the terms/words/phrases. But as she said she'll try anything once.

1.What would be a perfect day for you.

Sitting on the porch with a nice cool breeze, good book and a glass of sweet iced tea

2.How would you describe yourself if you were an item of clothing

Comfortable shoes

3.What hobby are you working on currently

Crocheting afghan squares

4.Walking in the woods in wellies or barefoot on the beach

Wellies are boots right? So I guess walking in the NC mountains (woods) in my favorite hiking shoes

5.Have you ever hugged a tree or sung to a tree

Not intentionally!!! But I have, on occasion, thanked them for their shade

6.Growing your own veggies or nipping to the supermarket.

No space to grow veggies. I buy fresh local veggies at the Farmer's Market in Raleigh.

7.Have you found anyone exciting in your family tree

I'm afraid to look. I might find someone who was a little too exciting

8.Slap up a meal in a plosh restaurant or fish 'n chips from a wrapper

Is 'slap up'..a phrase for eating? If so, I've done it but normally I most enjoy local small cafes

9.Which element do you most resonate with, earth, wind, fire or water

Earth, I have a love for all creatures great and small and the out of doors.

10. Do you believe in fairies.

I love yes I do believe in fairies. They are happy little creatures. I'm a firm believer in any thing that is happy or makes me or someone else smile.


  1. Great work with the Tag! It is important to believe in fairies.
    Have a fun day

  2. Concats to your mum. A slap up meal is a really good meal in a good class restaurant.
    Wellies are Wellington boots (rubber waterproof just below the knee boots)
    You asked why the horses had coats on. The two red coats are very lightweight cotton and just enough to keep the night chill off the two thoroughbreds. The other two horses were wearing fly sheets to keep the midges off them as they are prone to Sweet Itch.

  3. It's very nice that you let your Mom tell a little about herself, Madi. It was interesting to learn about her and you are most generous with your blog. I'm so glad you liked "Madiland". I guess it just suggested itself because as you know, I live with kitties, including a tortie. I'm not suggesting that I know how you kitties think, but I do have some experience along those lines. And I have a little firstpaw experience in the diva area my own self.

    Have a great day.

    Smileys & Snuggles!
    Dory, Jacob and Bilbo

  16. Our human has a sticker on her pc saying "Faries live here" and so we believe in faries too. They also make fairy circles in the grass and I have watched (somewhat embarrased) as she turns round and round and makes a wish.....

    Also, she is a tree hugger!

    So although you are a feline family as opposed to a canine one, our humans are pretty much on same wavelength!
