Sunday Selfies: Week #227

Just like me, today’s post is going to be short and sweet. Mom is really tired and is making me post and go. She’s been working super hard for us getting our Christmas cards addressed and ready to mail, so I’m not going to fight her. And I sort of owe her. I took my selfie this afternoon while sitting in her lap, and this was the 23rd photo I took. It’s the only one that wasn’t out of focus.


Astrids short and sweet Sunday Selfie


So, with that little bit said, it is you turn to add your selfie to our blog hop. Here are Mom’s tips for hopping with us.

  • The link to add your selfie to the hop is below.
  • You also will find below the code to use if you’d like the hop to appear on your blog.
  • Posting on Sundays is not necessary to join.
  • You do not need to be a cat to enter. All anipals are welcome regardless of species.
  • The hop remains open for entries through Thursday midnight.
  • Please be so kind as to display our badge and/or link to The Cat on My Head.
  • Take the opportunity to visit some of the other hop-alongs and make some new friends or reconnect with some old ones.

Thanks for joining us!

Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid (with love and kisses for my husband Sampy)

p.s. As I think I look exceptionally cute in my photo, I asked Mom to turn my selfie into a puzzle for you. Click on my image below to go to Jigsaw Planet to work the puzzle.

We are so glad that you were patient with your Mom, Astrid, cause that is such a lovely selfie! And all in the Christmas decor, too!

We made this weeks entry on the new loaned computer, and it sure was a lot easier than trying to do it on our IPad. Now we just need to figure out how to use the image editor that our techhead-unfurbro-the-elder installed for us. Our framed images and next week’s card were done an a simple editing site for IPad. Nothing fancy, but it is useful! Next week’s card template was done on another online site, then further edited on the IPad. We wonder who is going to be the first furend who gets a card from us with ‘the Gimp’s’ work…

What an adorable selfie, Astrid. We’re glad you took it.

Spitty the Kitty December 16, 2018 at 7:01 pm

Astrid, You are looking just so festive and beautiful today–you are WORTH the 23 tries! We cheated a little today because the Human was too lazy to help me take a new picture so we used an O-L-D one. Hope you all have a happy and cozy week! Tell your Mom to relax and enjoy herself–what gets done, gets done. Of course, my Human is waaaaaay laier than yours, MOL! XOXOXO

Melissa & Mudpie December 16, 2018 at 6:36 pm

That is a very pretty selfie sweet Astrid!

Deb Barnes December 16, 2018 at 7:28 am

Christmas sure can be exhausting for the humans…they should just do what we do and nap on top of boxes all day! Purrs from Deb and the Zee/Zoey gang

Maggie December 16, 2018 at 7:01 am

Astrid, you are a star!
I hope Mom can take some time to enjoy the season.

You are one beautiful photographic kitty, Astrid! Your mom did you proud! 😀

Scylla, Fenris, Tuiren, YinYang & Chimera (ATCAD) December 16, 2018 at 6:42 am

Wow that is a stunning picture of you Astrid. We can’t even manage to keep our Mommy home unless she is sick. Yesterday she went to a birthday party for Grandbean and stayed all day and didn’t even bring us any cake.

Little Binky and Granny December 16, 2018 at 6:07 am

You’re looking mighty fine in your Selfie, sweet girl 🙂 Pawkisses for a wonderful Christmas to all of you🐾😽💞

Teddy December 16, 2018 at 5:13 am

Astrid it’s a perfect selfie and the Christmasy surroundings just make you that much more pretty. Your Mom works very hard decorating the house for all of you to enjoy and with shopping/wrapping/writing – well – it’s a BUSY time for humans!

Hugs, Teddy

The J-Cats December 16, 2018 at 5:00 am

Astrid, that is a furry beautiful selfie – and so festive!
We just love it!

Trixie, Caspurr and Shimshi

PeeEss: We seem to have had a bit of trouble posting Our Own Selfie to the Blog Hop list. Somehow, it came out upside down! We don’t know why. We are NOT in the Antipodes (mol).

Gattina December 16, 2018 at 3:24 am

Your mum is very brave ! I never write Christmas cards anymore, only virtual once ! Takes too long by mail and our post is on strike again !

Summer December 16, 2018 at 3:14 am

Nice selfie, Astrid!

Erin the Cat Princess December 16, 2018 at 12:26 am

Excellent selfie, and love how the berries fall so neatly between your ears, and the golden balls match your eyes…

meowmeowmans December 16, 2018 at 12:05 am

Astrid, that sure is a lovely selfie. And good job cutting Mom a little slack. It sounds like she’s been working really hard on those cards. Big hugs!
