Poetic Thursday and Shopping Around the World

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Angel Sammy has suggested one of these  L words:
Lamb, love, lap, lunch

Mom's Ode to the letter 
My dearest lamb
If upon my lap you did climb,
my glee would soar from shore to shore.
 Your love would feed my soul a bunch
making me forget to eat my lunch.

TOGM aka one with thumbs aka Mom

Today we are also pawticipating in Shopping Around the world.
Teddy is hosting this month for Bacon everybuddy's favorite Piggie
The feature this week is SNACKS!!!
WOOHOO this family loves snackies!!

Hidden Valley Oyster Crackers.  
Mom has been making this snackie to take to
parties for many years.  Everyone always loves the itty bitty tasty crackers

You need one 12-16 oz package of plain Oyster crackers

1 package Original of....

1/4 tsp lemon pepper
1/2-1 tsp dill weed
1/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4-1 cup cooking oil, I use canola

  1. Preheat the oven to 250°F
  2. ***In a small bowl, add the oil, Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing and; Seasoning Mix, dill, and lemon pepper and garlic powder. ...
  3. In a 1-gallon-size Glad® Zipper Bag, add the crackers and oil mixture.
  4. Seal the bag and toss until well-coated.
  5. *** I put crackers in a large bowl, mix  oil, dressing and spices in a small bowl then pour over crackers and toss until coated.   I have never tried the bag sounds messy.
  6. pour well mixed crackers on a cookie sheet and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes until browned nicely. They smell really yummy when browning.

Friday night 8/25/17 I was looking out the octagonal window 
#1 position
My peeps were sitting on the love seat.  Mom got up to get the camera Dad was still on the love seat
I move to #2 position...then lickety split Mom heard Dad say you MISSED IT all
in one swift move I jumped from position #2 to #3 landing in the middle of the rug
position #4 is about 2' short of my actual landing.  
I think I will change my name to SuperDiva

MOM missed every single nano second of it.  That is what she gets for 
going to get the flashy beast.  Dad says he has not seen me jump that far
in FUREVER and the said WTG Madi!!!

Madi UPDATE from Madi:
Well as you can see from  above, I  was flying high as a kite on Friday;
and throughout the weekend I ate well.

Then the dreaded MONDAY arrived.  How I felt over the weekend was 360 degrees different from how I felt when I woke up Monday which was way less than purrfect.  My tummy was unhappy.
I had a wee bit of breakfast.  Mom and Dad are hoping my 4-5 week slow acting 1 time only cortisone shot has not already worn off.  This Thursday will be 3 weeks.
So any way that is how it stands now.
No worries though 'cause my peeps are taking very good care of me
and making sure I don't EVER get in the condition I was in back in June.
My peeps say one day at a time
As always
Hugs Madi your bfff
Guess what I got fine white albacore tuna packed in water for supper and I loved it.

 Mom Says maybe this is my new normal some days I feel good some days I'm mellow.
After all they are in uncharted territory with me. I'm 15 1/2 their oldest pet.  I'm the only one that has ever had kidney issues and on SUBq fluids. Mom for sure must mean ANXIOUS or Worry in some language.  My mom is Queen of Anxious and Worry

I WISH MY......


This is what Mom saw the other day when she walked sissy's former bedroom.
I was very deep in sleep I didn't even wake up but i moved my feets
first they were stretched out...then I tucked them.  
Silly things like that make Mom's heart melt

We wanted to also let you know that Gigio the Mouse  hand knitted by Mara
went to live with my sis.  This is the note Mom attached to him before she
wrapped him up. The envelope contains sis's bday money.
Always the right size, shape and color!!
