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!

Cat4-001Anyhoo…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.



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.

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

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,

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.

The Menagerie Mom October 30, 2016 at 8:49 am

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!

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

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

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.

meowmeowmans October 30, 2016 at 12:06 am

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! 🙂
