Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, everyone! How was your weekend? Has spring found you yet? If it has, would you please give it my address? ‘Cause it’s taking its sweet time getting here.

In other news, my older daughter finished university! I am so proud of her. It’s amazing how quickly time goes by; before you know it they’re all grownup.

She also has a new foster cat. The last one she was taking care of was adopted, which made room for a new one. She sent me a photo of the latest furball:


Adorable, no? This sweet calico is six months old, and the name she arrived with is ‘Chatouille’, which means ‘tickle’ in French. My daughter said she and her boyfriend will change it to something else, but they haven’t decided on a suitable name yet. Chatouille is extremely friendly, affectionate and loves being around people. I’ve no doubt she’ll find a furever home in no time.

Now, let’s get to the funny stuff, shall we? Yeah, let’s...









A beautiful day to all!

    We did have some spring days already but it ended up being cold again. I enjoy every bit of sunshine as much as I can :) That cat is adorable, such a beautiful color! Can you please send that dog over to eat my homework? My paper is kinda hard :) Love the funny stuff - it made me smile so much!

    1. Hi Beate! It's great to see you here. There are a few dogs in my neighbourhood. Perhaps one of them can help you out with that homework :)

      Yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day, so we got lots of sunshine, which I am grateful for.

      Thank you about my daughter. This is a great milestone in her life. I am very proud of her.

  11. I'm happy for your daughter as she achieves a major accomplishment, Martha! What an exciting time for her!
    Thanks for your Chortles and Chuckles today. I'm a little under the weather, and they gave me a welcome boost. I usually hear two words applied to me: passionate and energetic. I'm not sure what one word I choose myself! Fascinating question you posed! Have a great week!

    1. It truly is an exciting time for her. I'm so eager to see what happens next!

      Passionate and energetic are two words that I think fit you perfectly! Even the posts you share on your blog would be described that way.

  12. I have some good stuff to send your way for spring. Snow! You'll love it. Spring is taking it's time. We haven't had any nice days to break things up. We will just have to make the best of it.

  13. I can't wait for Son #1 to be done... eight years down, one more to go... I hope!

    We've been looking to foster a cat but not sure we'd be able to give it back LOL.

    1. I'd have the same problem, Monique. I would get so attached to the kitty that I'd have a hard time giving it up.

    1. Wow, 85! That is way higher than what we're experiencing. I'm just hoping for it to be warm enough so I can enjoy the outdoors for extended periods.
