Sunday Selfies: Week #116
As Halloween is tomorrow, Mom thought one of us kitties would be posting some type of ghoulish selfie for today’s blog hop. But not so. I am leaving that to my two fursibs who will be posting tomorrow. Instead I have done a nice fall-themed selfie.
Posting a fall selfie seemed like a terrific idea, except for the fact that it was 83 degrees F here yesterday, and today is supposed to be more of the same. The record high for yesterday was 84 degrees F in 1928, so we just missed it. We really haven’t seen much in the way of the leaves changing colors. The dogwoods have changed, but most of the others are completely green and still on the trees or have fallen without changing. Pffft!
Mom says she doesn’t mind if we have a warmer than usual winter. She hates the cold. She is sorry, however, that we are not having a colorful fall. MOUSES!
Anyhoo…this is our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, and we are looking forward to having oodles of you join us on our fun hop. All critters are welcome regardless of species. If you don’t normally post on Sundays, that’s okay. You can link to another day’s post. And if you can’t get here today to add your link, that is alright as well. The hop stays open through Thursday. Also, if you have difficulty linking, just leave us a comment. Mom will do it for you.
If you’d like to post the hop on your blog, the code is below. If you do so, please to us the favor of including a link back to The Cat on My Head and/or display our badge.
With thanks and paw-pats, Misty May
p.s. Mom’s Mac and Cheese recipe is below.
CREAMY MACARONI AND CHEESE
I must preface my recipe by saying that I rarely measure ingredients except when it is an absolute necessity.
1 box medium-sized shell pasta (cooked al dente)
1 stick salted butter
two heaping serving spoons of sour cream
grated sharp white cheddar cheese (enough to totally cover top of pasta, butter and sour cream mixture.
After boiling pasta place in glass (microwave safe) casserole that has been sprayed with PAM or similar product. Add stick of butter and stir until melted. Make a well in the center of the shells and add sour cream. Cover top with cheese. Cover casserole dish and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Remove and stir all ingredients together until blended and creamy. Serve.
If you do not like the consistency, the next time you make this, add or subtract sour cream and/or cheese.
You’re beautiful, Misty May. Fall has eluded us as well. Mommy isn’t happy about that.
Misty May, You looks boo-tiful. We still looking fur fall here – been furry unusually warms, that’s bout to change soon.

What a lovely picture, Misty May! You look like you’re daydreaming of something wonderful. I’m in Virginia, too, and we still have a lot of green. I am one of those weird people who LIKE cold weather, so these out-of-season hot days are not making me happy. LOL

I can’t believe how warm it is there! It’s cold and rainy here. I suppose that’s seasonally appropriate, but I am envious of your warmer temperatures!

Lovely fall frame and nice selfie, Misty May ! Purrs
Misty Mae looks gorgeous in her fall colors!!
Beautiful photo and frame Misty May. We had enough snow at our house last Thursday that mom had to clean off her car with a broom and sweep an area so the outside cats could eat. I don’t think we will have a fall.
Hugs and Purrs and a million kisses for my love Ms Lisbeth,
We don’t celebrate halloween, so we think your selfie is just gawjus. Have a pawsum week.

We’re having warmer than normal temps too and pols are still saying no climate change. Beautiful fall frame! I posted the scariest “selfie” ever. Wait till you see who I got to pose for a selfie. It’s on my FB page.
I hope you get Fall soon Mauricio. Your frame for your selfie is a very good choice.
Aiiiieeeee!!! I told Mom to type Misty May….*slaps paw to forehead*
It was in the low 70s here yesterday…very unusual for this time of year…but back into the 50s and rain today. That’s a nice selfie, Misty May. 🙂
Misty May you do look very lovely!
That mac and cheese sounds awesome! Mom might try it with cauliflower since she doesn’t eat pasta!!

Misty Mae, I love the frame you chose. You are gorgeous. Thanks to your Mom for sharing her recipe, I can’t wait to try it. I just made Pam’s biscotti and it was a big hit with my hubby ( and me). All our leaves are down from the cold and then heavy rains. XO
We get our Fall color from Goldenrods and Ironweed and the other wildflowers that are blooming. We have a nice purple and yellow theme going in our yard with hints of red.
Mommy can’t wait to try the Mac & Cheese recipe.
misty may your selfie is lovely has always have a save halloween its rainy here and mom just loves it zen hugs and purrs
We love this autumn selfie, Misty May! We, too, are having a warm autumn, though. It’s in the 80s here, and muggy as muggy can get. We’re glad the trick-or-treaters won’t freeze this year, but it would be nice to have a bit of an autumn feel to the air. Luckily, we had ourselves about a week of cool enough weather a while back, enough that we do have ourselves some beautifully colored leaves around. Happy Sunday to you all, and happy (almost) Halloween!
Oh, and I can’t wait to give this mac and cheese a try!
Hi Misty Mae, a lovely autumnal selfie…. we are grateful for a longer than normal summer over here, but I bet it will come at a price later on… usually high winds and loads of rain and impromptu snow! purrs ERin
Your Fall Selfie is pretty darn cool! Oh the Mac and Cheese sure sounds good!
Misty Mae we are missing our fall here in PA too. We have nice colors but the weather is topsy turvey. Purrs
Timmy and Family
That is a very nice selfie. You guys are having the same weather we have in Florida.
Very pretty Fall picture today. Happy Sunday! The weather is up and down here, but it is supposed to get cold next week. A good recipe for comfort food will come in handy.

That’s a very cute Autumn Selfie, Misty May. The colors of Autumn will come, don’t worry, Enjoy the beautiful weather, we had that last year in November…and today too, not so hot, but at least we have Sun 🙂 Pawkisses for a wonderful Day 🙂 <3
Yum!! That Mac n cheese sounds yummy!! Your selfie is so pretty !!
Beautiful fall selfie !
Gorgeous Fall Selfie Misty May, mew look beautiful!

Love the selfie!
It’s very mild in London too. We hardly ever get cold weather any more. Mum loves the cold but I don’t!
Well I couldn’t resist doing a spooky selfie today but I’m glad Misty May did a beautiful Fall selfie to balance ME out! The mac-n-cheese recipe is right up my Mom’s alley – she’s a NUT about it and the sour cream sounds like a great idea – I’m surprised SHE didn’t think of that since she loves sour cream. We were surprised by the warm arriving here yesterday afternoon too – – – it had been cold all morning! Happy Sunday!
Love, Sammy Scissorpaws
Your Fall selfie is lovely, Misty May. The weather has got milder here again and we are getting low 60s from thr mid 30s and low 40s of last week. The mac ‘n’ cheese sounds delicious.
I think we are having your fall – it has been cool and rainy here in L.A.!
Lovely photo! Enjoy the warmth while it lasts! 🙂
If you’d like to see color we have lots of pretty trees here right now. Its not that warm here, though it is warmer than a few days ago. You made a nice selfie looking at your tree leaves Misty May!
We love your autumn selfie, Misty Mae & you’re looking purticularly sweet! Hope you guys will stop over to our bloggers Meowoleen slideshow & see your partner in crime Fiona’s Halloween cameo pumpkin appearance!
We just finished last week’s hello’s and are now here for THIS weeks!
Happy Sunday Selfie girls and guys!
Gorgeous, Misty May … we don’t see NEARLY enough of you! And who doesn’t love mac and cheese?!?!?
Mommy is longing for Fall–she says 90 degrees in October is unnatural–but WE are loving the heat! Misty May, we think B & W kitties go with all the seasons!
Good gravy!! You have weather in the 80’s? This is unjust…we have weather in the low one digits. It is cool here. We have fall….come and get it. We’ll take the summer weather.
The mac and Cheese recipe is interesting. I never heard of sour cream in mac and cheese.
We certainly haven’t seen fall here, either. You look lovely for fall or any season, Misty May!
Misty May, that is a beautiful selfie, sweet one! We love how you’re looking up … maybe at some leaves falling?
We were saying the exact same thing today — the foliage is not very vibrant this year (we’ve been in a drought, so that’s probably why), and it is really warm right now (high 60s, which is crazy for Connecticut in late October).
That mac and cheese recipe sounds delicious. We will be sure to give it a try! 🙂
