Easy Like Sunday Morning

It's good to be the queen

DKM was hanging out here yesterday…

Bodega Bay as the sun begins to set

The sounds of waves crashing Bodega Bay for those stuck in piles of snow.

Meme from Lady Luck

The rules are:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

I’m actually reading again one of my all time favorite books, The Grass is Singing by Doris Lessing.

“She hated the place, which she had never entered before, “Filthy Savages!” she thought vindictively.  She looked straight into the reddened, beer-clouded eyes of the headman, and repeated.”

So we’ll invite the following to try the meme: Jessica, Wormie, Millie’s Mum, Brandi and Slick’s Mum.

  6. I love your new header for the blog – so beautiful.

    Thanks for doing the meme – I love Doris Lessing’s writing too.

    Divakitty looks adorable as always. ;-)

  8. Nice work lying in front of the fireplace Sophia – it looks like fun. We haven’t actually got a real fireplace, just a gas heater, but since we don’t get real snow here, it works nicely for us. Mum loved the beach pictures, although we’re not sure we want to be too close to that much water.

    Great meme – Mum keeps meaning to search out some other Doris Lessing books, so this meme is just one more spur.

  9. Bodega Bay is furry beautiful! Here in Buckeye country right now: snow, sleet, ice pellets, and rain…

  10. Oh man, that looks comfy. How often does DKM have to roll you over for maximum heat dispurtion?

    2-March-2008 at 5:07 am

  11. Oh man, Sophia, great fire to chillax in front of. Gree is going to be sooooooo jealous when she wakes up and sees it. I think I’ll go try to talk the beans into starting a fire for us. I may have to work too hard at it though, cuz it’s pretty warm here. Hmmmms. Maybe I’ll just go curl up in a sunspot instead. Hmmmms.

  12. Oh Sophia, you look so warm and comfy and cozy. I’m telling my mom to start our fireplace right now! Fi, I wish you were here to snuggle in front of it with me …


    PS: I’m having a big clearance sale to help raise funds for the Cat Blogosphere if you’d like to come see.

  13. Any room for a few more kitties by your fire?
    The waves & beach are a nice sight for winter weary eyes!

    2-March-2008 at 8:37 am

  14. Ah, Sophia, you are gorgeous! And so are the beach pictures, gosh, I miss the beach!

    2-March-2008 at 9:07 am

  15. i’ve never been to the ocean but it sure looks pretty

    i think DK deserves to rule the roost, though she surely isn’t AS deserving as Fi and Lando of course!

    2-March-2008 at 10:22 am

  16. Lovely pics:) xxx

  17. This is a great mememe. The ocean sure looks nice where you live too – it’s a bit rougher where we live at the moment and we don’t have sand (we have pebbles). FAZ

  18. Mommy just stared and stared at those beach photos. I think I saw her get a leaky!

    2-March-2008 at 12:14 pm

  19. Mum loved the beach, but we like the pikchurs of you in furront of the fire best.

    2-March-2008 at 2:12 pm

  20. Yoo look really comfy in front of da fire…filthy savages is what mom calls da sticky kids dat come over and hang out wif our dad…she means it affectionatly of course.

    2-March-2008 at 2:22 pm

  21. I am very jealous DK and DKM. I want warm weather and sunshine!

  22. You are the queen of Northern California and I am the queen of Southern California.

    My pet human says she hasn’t been to Bodega Bay in years! She used to stop at a Russian restaurant in Inverness on her way back, but she can’t remember the name. Ivan’s??

    Thanks once again for the walk down memory lane.

  24. You’re so lucky–we have a fireplace but my mom hardly ever lights it for me.

    2-March-2008 at 7:08 pm

  25. Tha is an interesting meme. Mom loves the sound of the ocean. About 4 years ago she and the boy spent a week on Virginia Beach with her girlfriend and her 4 kids. Mom loved falling asleep to the ocean surf. Sigh.

    Beautiful & warm fireplace! I love the pictures of the beach, too …

    P.S. The snuggle arrived – thanks so much!

    2-March-2008 at 7:55 pm

    Well, it *compliments my eye color – my green is actually somewhat lighter! :) The green in my eye changes, too, depending on what light I’m in …

    But we love the green of the snuggle!

    2-March-2008 at 8:35 pm

  28. You look sooOooo content, happy and warm! My Momma really loves that picture of you all stretched out and your eyes heavy-lidded as if you can’t stay awake another moment.

    2-March-2008 at 8:58 pm

  29. Gorgeous… Sophia loves the warm fire, I love seeing Sophia in front of the fireplace, and my human is getting all dreamy-eyed from thinking about the other photos. Personally, it looks like a bunch of water to me, and to be honest, I don’t see the attraction. But humans have this irrational need for water, probably because of their lack of fur.

  30. You look furry comfortable in front of the fireplace DivaKitty!
