Postcards and Pussy Cats ...

Guess what ??? I had a wonderfully peaceful, restful weekend. I did a lot of nothing, and now feel totally refreshed. I feel ready to take on a heap of new projects ... let's see what is in store for me this week !!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend ... What did you get up to ??

I was excited when I went to check my letterbox today, hoping there would be a postcard for me. Well, there was two of them ...

The first one is from Skyblue, with gorgeous pictures of San FransiSco ... it looks like a really amazing place. Another one in a long list of places I want to visit.

The second is from Kimananda, from Denmark, showing a beautiful picture of Prince Frederick and Princess Mary (who is a proud Aussie !!). I guess, Kimananda, we have a connection through this couple !!

Thanks ladies, I love the postcards. This is so much fun, I am really enjoying going to my letterbox daily, in anticipation of the postcards that may be there. Unfortunately, I don't imagine anyone has received any of mine yet, as the Australian Snail Mail is really, really slow. I posted them last week, so they shouldn't be too far away.

I thought I might share with you one of my favourie kitty pictures (no, it is not my cat !!)

Isn't that just the cutest ?!?!? I wish it were me in that chair, sleeping the day away !!

Anyway, friends ... I hope you have a wonderful week. Take time out occasionally, like my little kitty friend ... it helps recharge those batteries.

Take care,

MEOW

You are really getting some great postcards.

Glad you got to relax this weekend. I had a wonderful time entertaining my guest Norm the gnome as you have seen on my posts. He is very fun. He will probably be leaving Thursday or Friday.

Lots of Hugs,
Connie

I envy that little kitty. He sure has a nice rest. Hope you get the postcard too. How do you get some others to join the Postcard exchange. So far I only have you and Mumbo jumbo.

Clare said...

Aww that is a cute kitty picture and you got some nice postcards too :). Isn't it great to have a restful weekend when you've been really busy?

I've had problems with the comments section on here with my computer at home so logging on at work so I can comment again :).

I love the post cards. Each one tells a different story. And the kitty is sooo cute. Cats do know how to relax, don't they! My weekend was fine, I posted about it today. Yours was more relaxed than mine!!

Devil Mood said...

That's a really cute cat :) Oh cats are so fluffy..hehe

I'm glad the postcards are getting there but you'll have to wait a while for mine cause I only posted it today and tomorrow's a holiday over here.
I hope the week is full of new projects :)

Meow said...

DaybyDay ... yay to me !!

Fridays Child ... yep, kittys know the best ways to relax. Re the postcard exchange ... I'll email you !!

Clare ... it was lovely to relax this weekend. Blogger has been evil lately, causing all sorts of problems ... hopefully he will be better today !

Reverberate ... the postcards are lovely ... I'll have to think of a cool way to display them ... maybe a collage or something !!

Devil Mood ... cats ARE so fluffy !! My postcard to you is being posted this week ... I've been slack !!

DaybyDay ... oooh, I'll come on over and have a look !!

Tab ... was Ice Age 2 good ... I want to see it, I loved the first one !! Aren't computers naughty, the way they taunt us, and make us sit and play !!

Take care, everyone ... Meow

Ahhhh, the kitty is so cute.
San Fran is a wonderful place to visit. I hope you get to go there some day. There are some very beautiful places, and you would have to visit Chinatown and eat some food there.

Madi said...

Nice kitty pic. I always tell my daughter when she needs to release a bit of tension - be like a cat you pick up from the middle of her stomach. It reminds you how to relax every part of your body immediately. Then try again, whatever it was you were doing.

i love it when you call it oyur letterbox instead of mailbox:)

momyblogR said...

Great post cards. Man, I'm such a shlep that I haven't gotten mine out yet....it's coming! :):)

Dick said...

Meow, your postcard arrived today. Thank you for the greetings from "around the bay."

My weekend was busy, with a trip to a comedy show Fri night, the MG club car rally Sat (I got that posted tonight on my blog,) then church, mochas and a BBQ at my son & DILs home Sun.

I had a problem with Blogger this morning. I could write a comment but it would not let me send it out. I hope it behaves better now.

Nasty Nashe said...

thanks!
I'll send u one soon yeah? Simply way TOOOOO busy at the moment!

LoraLoo said...

I got your postcard yesterday, thank you! :)

San Francisco is such a beautiful place. It is one of my favorite cities, so much to do there!

I hope you are having a great week.

SkyeBlue2U said...

Hello Meow! Isn't this postcard thing fun! Well, just came by to say Hi. HI!

Reverberate58 said...

I clicked on your blog and for the first time had sound off. My mom loved this song!! Guess I need to keep the sound on more often when I visit other blogs, no telling what I might hear!!

Meow said...

Jamie ... thanks. Oooh, you all make me really want to come over and visit ... some day (when I win Lotto, perhaps !)

Madi ... I guess cats really know how to relax, although they always have one ear open.

Bossy Britches ... it is amazing the number of words and phrases that we say different. It's really only here that we notice !!

Momyblogr ... take you time, no rush !!

Dick ... yay, I'm glad it arrived. Sounds like your weekend was great.

Smitten Kitten ... yay, another one arrived. Australia Post is in top form this time around !!

Lora Loo ... yay, you too !!

Skyeblue ... yes, this postcard thing is wonderful. Hi to you too !!

Reverberate ... aawww, too bad. I think it is a fun song, but I wonder if everyone is now "over it" !!

Have a wonderful week everyone.
Take care, Meow
