when fatima rings the dinner bell

with my honey at the head of the table
I serve the sunday dinner
for 3 or 15 depending on how many arrive that day
macaroni, most served
with sauce stirred all morning
sprinkled with parmesan
with nothing in it for me, and her,
with just meatballs for those 3
and with sausage and pepperoni for the guys over there.
and just scrambled hamburg for the littler two.
and in this circle of peace and eating
comes in the door
the love of my grandmother
who wants my world to be...
alright, no matter what hurt arises.
because we are together
in a good family.

in honor of my grama's dishes that I inherited
recently; that she always used to serve us
sunday dinner on. now :) they are mine!

Print Shopping for your Instagram faves!

For Mother's Day this year, my kids got my new up-to-date photos of them for my photo bulletin board! It was tricky though, because the pix I wanted were from our Instagram. They were coming out all stretchy and distorted when I tried to get them from Shutterfly :( But we figured out how to do it!

After selecting the photos we want to order, Shutterfly gives you a list of the pix - for you to select size and quantity; and you see a little thumbnail of how each pic will look. For your Instagram ones (which are square) click Preview under it. From the preview that pops up, choose cropping. At the bottom of the cropping window, it says Custom Tool - select that! Pick Square and you should be all set (make sure the whole pic is inside the square print area). They turned out great!! It will put them on the regular 4x6 print, but with a white border around it. Not blurry; not stretched :)

Good luck!

Never fear, the scratcher's here!

Hi. Just wanted to let all you SmartyKat CatChaise Scratcher chair users like us, that it's not going to be for sale at Walmart online anymore. So I asked SmartyKat on their facebook page how to find it now, and they provided me with another good, online store to get it from. Amazon has some right now! Just buy it from the actual Amazon.com supplier on there though (or an Amazon seller you already trust), we'd suggest, because other random sellers might have let it get damp or dirty (since it is a cardboard scratcher and isn't being made in bulk now anymore). We're placing our first order with them now. Let's keep the Scratcher Chair available online, keep buying them people lol (Apache is allergic to most scratchers since they're cardboard, poor angel, but this chair has NEVER made him have an allergic reaction so we NEED this one to stay for sale, help us keep the supply and demand river flowing lol). Let's remember they're Eco and come with the best organic catnip on the planet. Makes the cats go crazy for it! xo! Love Harley and Mom :)

Loved by cool cats like Apache (the white one) and my girl Bri (the calico) xo!!
