Feline Foodie Friday: Cat Mama Chronicles ~ Wilderness Wellness

Have you seen 🎬commercials📺 in which moms choose food for their kids because it’s healthy, and their children end  up liking it because it’s tasty? 

Enter Blue Wilderness! Fitting name for my Double As: Blue for my blue-eyed AsiaWilderness for my wild cat Annie!


This cat food boasts that it’s 🍞Grain Free, which would agree with 👑Queen 🐯Asia‘s tummy!

And it turns out that 👑Princess 🐱Annie🐈 actually prefers it too! Maybe it’s because these morsels look like Cocoa Puffs? J/s

I weened them off their previous 😺cat😸 🍛chow🍲 prior to switching permanently, and over the past couple of weeks before they ran out of their old food, they ate around it while begging for their brand new preference!

😹Meow😽 😼Now😾 😿Bow🙀 🐾Wow!

What do you think of Pope Francis‘ Laudato Si environmental encyclical?

Praise Be His creation!

I’m taking full advantage of taking care of my share of †GOD’s† ☼creations☼ and creatures this weekend!

Following a long week filled with grading speeches and continuing my doctoral dissertation data processing, I beat the heat before today’s rain hit to tend to the garden.

Angelic Annie is the prayerful† pet ~ reverent with our Rosary!


This glow-in-the-dark Rosary goes well with reverent Angelic Annie‘s green eyes ^_^

Last Memorial Day🇺🇸 weekend, I longed to stay home🏡 and relax with my Double A😻 ~ to play and pray✌ ~ before teaching this summer☼ and my work trips🚘 slated for next month!

 
To kick it off, my bestie‘s family held Mass💒 at their new blessed 🏠home! Her always generous mom was sweet🍭 enough not just for the food🍛 that she cooked🍗 and baked🎂 for their guests, but also for sending me home with plenty of leftovers🍱 and one of the beautiful flower💐 center pieces! 

  
Before I followed in my mom’s lead by bringing them to the 🙏Virgin … 

 
        

… My 🐱girls🐯 and I enjoyed 🌺them, and I made the most out of my QT with my ♥cuties! K&K‘s💪 FFF book📖 (2015) cited research🔬 from 📙Journal of Evolutionary Psychology that revealed how fresh flowers🌷 provoke 🌻joy!

 
        

FYI: Due to my the heavy load ahead for my remaining dissertation🎓 work ahead, I may not post📓 on here as much. Best wishes of blessings† to all who stay in my loop📳 as I deliver the scoop🍦 … and I seek y’all to please send good vibes☺️ and lift yours truly in ☝prayer, thank y’all! 

Workout Wednesday: Prayer Pose

In Community, Fitness Friday, Health, Higher Ed, Home Sweet Home, Pro-DiSPO, Public Interest, Relationships, Sports, Travel, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Workin' Woman, Workout Wednesday, Yours Truly on 05/20/2015 at 12:50

Maligayang Bati. Mami Aya! * HBD, Nurse Nanay

In spirit of the recent Church💒 Sacraments (including my students’ First Communion and Confirmation), how about we put prayer into practice in our workout routines? 

I propose the 🙏Prayer Pose: place palms together in front of your chest, with your elbows bent at 45*

Here are lower bod and midsection moves that you can do in Prayer Pose (as opposed yet similar to Tree🌳 Pose) while standing and maintaining your balance …
During each rep, say something that you’re grateful for👏 (THANKSgiving prayers) or say a full☝️ prayer during a set✌️
3 sets of 12-15 reps
🙏Squats (as opposed to Prisoner👮 Position with hands behind your head): alternate stances between sets ~ wide/plié • narrow • shoulder width ~ drop low [legs]
🙏Lunges (as opposed to Warrior⛺️ yoga🌅 poses): extend one leg in front of you with knee bent at 90* and stretch other leg straight behind you then drop it down
🙏Calf Raises: alternate toe-point directions between sets ~ facing each other • facing forward • facing outward ~ start on tippy toes than lower to balls of feet👣 (calves)
🙏Abductors: with both legs together and toes facing forward, raise one leg outward to hip level; repeat on the other side after each set [inner thighs]
🙏Extensions: with both legs together and toes facing forward, raise one leg forward to hip level; repeat on the other side after each set [quadriceps]
🙏Elevated Curls: with both legs together and toes facing forward, raise one leg backward while bending the knee at 90*; repeat on the other side after each set [hamstrings]
🙏Bun Press: with both legs together and toes facing forward, raise one leg straight backward; repeat on the other side after each set [glutes]
🙏Knee Raises: draw one knee at a time up toward your chest [legs and core]
🙏Trunk Twists: turn your torso to the left, then to the right for one rep [core]

More bonus🌠 moves while laying on a clean, flat surface …

🙏Pray-Ups (as opposed to Pistol🔫 Pose): on your back, with palms together in prayer pose and legs extended straight out, tuck tummy in while bringing arms and legs together [core]

🙏Laying Curls: on your belly, with palms together in prayer pose and knees bent, curl legs behind you [hams]

And another 1 …

🙏Pray Raise (as opposed to Pistol🔫 Pose): either standing or sitting, lift arms up in prayer [chest]

Manny Monday: Fight, 4th, Cinco, Nurses & Moms

Happy May the 4th be with You!

Monday’s multiple feature is about May days …

  • First, I traveled to SA for school and to meet with my esés for the game and fight*

Pinoy Pride

*My remarks about Manny:

  • He has way more going on in his life than just being a fighter:
  1. He lives by his faith
  2. He is a hero to his family and my native country due to
  • his generosity from his earnings and
  • his political career

… while Fighter is the only identity that Floyd Mayweather has achieved:

  1. Professionally, obviously
  2. Personally ~ considering his history of violence

This self-proclaimed $Money$ was in it for

  • The title and to remain undefeated
  • $elfishly keeping his winnings

 

  • Before and after my trip back home, I had to celebrate May the Fourth be with You

Foodie Friday: Feline Edition ~ TGIF Brunch

In ♥ & Soul, Community, Feline Friday, Foodie Friday, Health, Home Sweet Home, Public Interest, Relationships, Travel, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Yours Truly on 04/17/2015 at 14:50

TGIF! April Showers with a Chance of … Scrambled Eggs ✌

From ☼sunny☼ to stormy, I’m honestly relieved to sleep in on this rainy day because we all need downtime (something that I took for granted and recently realized is a necessity in order to thrive and survive).

Before I made myself this brunch:

Grilled Cheese Garlic French / Texas Toast: French Toast with egg wash (Almond Breeze Coconut Milk blend with cage free egg scrambled) * grilled cheese (Kraft Colby Jack marbled Big Slice) * garlic garnish (McCormick Perfect Pinch Garlic & Herb) for Texas Toast

♪Gotta have coffee♫ … I dig those days when I’m can drink from my mug at home instead of taking my tumbler on-the-go!

I also fixed my family theirs:

Sharing is a skill!

Simple and Savory is the Flavor of this Friday!

Final note: good thing that we chowed down our hearty meals before the heavy hail hit! I saw our neighbor cat sprint across the front yard to safe shelter!

Happy BiG *NINE* to my Fine ♥Valentine♥ Feline Asia Felina Catalina!!!

Happy ♣St. P’s♣ 1 week ago today from my Green-eyed Girl Sweet Annie!!!

♪Cats in the Cradle & the Silver Spoon♫

This is how *DALLAS COWBOYS* feline fans spoon!

Asia & Annie have my ♥heart♥

So when we’re apart

Big Girl & Baby Sis are who I miss …

But when I give Asge a kiss

She retorts with a hiss

As she lets out a growl

& a hint of a howl!

Annie does purr

As I stroke her fur

Vocal Anne may have sharp claws

Yet she does biscuits with her paws

& blinks at me with ♥love♥

Sent from ☼Heaven☼ above!

They both can be sweet

So going home to them is a treat.

Pantry Cat
