Magnets: Journeys ~ Cats ~Enchanting Phrases

.

Magnets are great fun ~ they are marvelous travel mementos, easy to carry and will bring a smile as you recall your adventures to favorite places.

When browsing for your travel magnets, check out other magnets ~ you may find some that appeal to your sense of wonder or whimsy. 

 

And what collection would be complete without a cat or two… 

Since travel is restricted for a while, we armchair travelers have to be creative: photo books, cookbooks, virtual sites on-line, novels or movies set in areas we want to explore, history books, perhaps study a language, listen to music from a different part of the country or world, etc …. 

I wish you all good health (physical and mental) … In these very stressful times, I hope that this email lets you take a pause  …and know that we will all get through this…..

Savor your journeys… real, imagined or virtual, near or far.

Jameson ~ A Beautiful Cat Who Loves Puzzles ~ and Tummy Rubs

Jameson loves helping me work on puzzles ~ from sorting the pieces to laying on it and guarding it. The last puzzle had two extra pieces (??) which she obviously did not like. She somehow took a piece from the puzzle and laid it next to the two orphan pieces. When not working on puzzles, she loves to stretch out and have her tummy rubbed or nap in her basket. Now, onto our next puzzle. 

Helping sort the pieces …. Voila — it’s finished! 

Time to start another puzzle
Time to start another puzzle

Which horoscope am I ??? 

Let’s work on a new puzzle … I will protect it … 

Hurrah .. it’s finished …hmmm, 2 pieces left over…let’s make it 3 …. 

Time for a Tummy Rub ….and a Nap!!

As I mention in the post (use the link above), I recently bought a 1,000 piece puzzle with the titles of cat books, including “How to Think Like a Cat”. I haven’t worked on a puzzle in ages and forgot how much fun it is… especially since my cat helps me with it.

Perhaps my next puzzle will be a favorite place where I have journeyed or plan to … or another cat puzzle. Whichever, it’s marvelous to rediscover the pleasure of  jigsaw puzzles.

And now, back to the puzzle ……

Treasure your pets as they are each so unique.
