Too Pooped To Percolate...

Ok. That title probably dates me badly - who remembers percolated coffee? All who do say "Aye!"
I wanted to show you the only thing I bought at the National Capital Cat Show this year...I was completely bowled over by this artist:

The title of this print is Bookmark and I don't suppose I have to tell you just who we all know and love that does exactly this (another reason I rarely read anymore)...?
Seriously, Jamie S. Perry is a talented caricaturist - and I doubt you could have read my blogs very long and not known that I'm enamoured of the art form - especially where Siamese cats are concerned? She does a lot more than just Siamese, too...

Tonight, because I am really tired, this is how I spent my evening - listening to a book on tape (you know, I'm going to books on CD...because so many of the library's tapes have really had it and I'm sick of pulling mangled tapes out of the player to rewind with my pinkie, praying all the while that it hasn't snapped!) and knitting a dishcloth. Ok. A heart dishcloth. Somehow it seemed terribly appropriate for Anne of Green Gables: a little girl with so much heart to give... the way. Stop by and put your two cents worth on Becky's contest - she's needing ideas for some Rowan 4-ply she purchased.

I apologize for a post that lacks any *spark* tonight - not to mention the less than good photos - but I just ain't got it in me...maybe tomorrow?

Great title, and I DO remember... percolated was the only coffee anyone drank when I was a kid and I couldn't understand why... luckily drip became trendy as well as better coffee. Hope you get lots of rest.

I love your new print - it looks like the Meezer holding a spot in the latest book you're reading. I think that there's still a small coffee percolator over to Mom's house. The last time I had coffee fixed that way was in North Dakota where they dropped an egg shell into the pot to settle the grounds that had slipped through. It was awfully good coffee considering, but I think I'll stick with instant Nescafe {g}..

I have notecards like that. Aren't they the best? My nana had a percolator and I used to love the way it sounded in the morning when I slept over her house.

I've always thought percolated coffee was better! We actually used one for a long until about a year ago!
I do love that print too! Mine are always wanting to get right in front of what I'm doing be it knitting, reading or the pc!

Love the print! Cats can not believe that you really want to pay attention to anything except themselves...

I don't drink coffee, never have, but my parents did, and I do remember the sound of the old stovetop percolator.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
