Fun Monday #24, Relax

Deb at 1CrazyStitcher is todays host - and just wants to see "your favorite place to relax."

The Contessa can relax anywhere. Today she was just letting it all hang out on the couch.




I sat in my favorite relaxing chair. Immediately The Contessa jumped up on me. Lucky for me because I wasn't in the mood to apply make up. And, lucky for you that you didn't have to see me that way. (PS. for all of you who gave advise about hairballs, thanks. I'm going to try the baby food squash. She has never let me brush her, she already eats hair ball formula food, and I smear the petromalt on her legs like a cream cheese on a bagel. It is frustrating.)





The hubby is relaxing in the hammock by the pond. I like to swing there, too. He has ridden his bicycle 135 miles the past few days training for STP. (Thats the Group Health Bicycle Classic in which he will ride a little over 200 miles in one day with his cycling buddies and thousands of others.)




Join the fun and post your favorite place to relax, whether it be a "chair, corner ledge, or limb!" (Deb's quote, not mine.) Head over to Debs melon patch and hang, relax and spit a few seeds with the gang.

Gorgeous cat. I have a chinchilla persian, and seem to spend my entire life combing her tummy to keep her knot free. Beautiful natured cats.

Hi Pamela, you really do go to a lot of trouble to avoid photos don't you?
Favourite place to relax?? would have to be in front of the computer.oy
Beccy said…
Not sure whether I love the chair or hammock more! The chair looks sooo inviting but I've always dreamed of owning a hammock.
DesLily said…
oh man, what I'd give to have a recliner once again!...

Oh Pamela, I so want to come and lie in your hammock. Contessa can come and curl up with me!
mjd said…
Ahhh, the hammock does look relaxing especially in that lovely spot. I feel serene just looking at your picture.
swamp witch said…
I want to come visit and lie in that hammock by your pond. Wow! What a wonderful place.
If I feed theHansMan baby food sqaush, do you think it will take care of his hair balls?
Jodi said…
Contessa sure looks comfortable on the couch!! I really like the hammock... but I would be a bit worried about getting too comfortable, falling asleep, then accidently rolling over to the right and making a big splash in the pond!! ;-)
Debs said…
Contessa is just beautiful. The hammock looks like the perfect spot along with the scenery.
Sayre said…
I have a fur-eating cat too. No matter what I do...

That hammock is to die for. SUppose hubby would share?
Irene said…
The Contessa rocks! Seriously. ;p

I wish you and your husband more happy moments of relaxation.

Have a wonderful week, Pamela!
You all definitely look relaxed!!

Enjoyed catching up on your site! Life is getting back to normal so I'll be around more.

Contessa is a beauty! I missed the tip about the baby food squash for hairballs. I will be trying that for my Hairball King.
Your pond looks like the perfect place to kickback!
xo

Contessa looks adorable. I've always thought hammocks were so cool, but I have a fear of flipping right over in them which means I avoid them at all costs. Your hubby makes it look easy though.
wolfbaby said…
i love the hammock and the pond...
Hannah said…
Your garden is gorgeous, and the hammock in it looks very relaxing.
jenn said…
I'm like the contessa, I can relax just about anywhere.

love the hammock. I've always wanted one, but can't seem to stay in one, I always flip out!!
JennieBoo said…
BTW, I LOVE the name of you blog! I'm in total agreement!

As for Fun Monday. That chair looks so comfy, I'd pick up the Contessa and nap with her!

Sweet kitty!

Thanks for sharing!

Happy Fun Monday
Debbie said…
I love your back yard. Gorgeous, and a lovely place for the hammock.
susan said…
It seems that anywhere there is a cat, it is time to relax. Contessa is a beauty!
Robinella said…
Love the hammock by the pond. I've always wanted a pond with water trickling down the rocks. That is my next project for sure!
BarnGoddess said…
the pond looks great! I could definitely get used to hanging out there...

Contessa is so pretty. I brush Marvin everyday, feed him Purina One advanced hairball formula AND I still find an occasional hairball hacked up-ewey.

Im gonna give the squash a try....if I can get mr. picky picky to EAT it.
Karmyn R said…
The pond is looking good. Give Tessie a scratch for me.
Bibi said…
Your garden looks lovely! My favorite place to relax is a sandy beach, sitting as close to the edge of the waves as I can without getting soaked.
Shelby said…
pokute kitty :)
Kaytabug said…
Heck yeah Pamela!! I am so excited you know that song!!! I haven't read all my comments yet so you might not be the last, but you are the FIRST! I tried so hard to find a clip of that song to put in my "BLT 4th" post. As soon as I figure out how to post my own copy of the song I am posting just that song!!
I love your pond and hammock!!!
tlawwife said…
I miss my pond!! Thanks for sharing yours.
Robin said…
The Contessa...gorgeous...I'm sure you are too, if you weren't hiding behind that big puffball! Funny girl, you are....

Our hammock rotted from living outside in the elements, but yours looks cozy...and clean...and usable! You should've gone and flipped your hubby--THAT would've been a FUNNY picture (the look on his face)...not that I'm encouraging you or anything ;).
ChrisB said…
The Contessa knows how to chill out! Your hubby deserves to relax after all that training- 200 miles in a day I'm exhausted just thinking about it -knock off a nought and I might manage it!!
min said…
Do you ever get the egg beater and massage your husband'd calves like in that French movie?
Hammocks are wonderful!
Raven_Dase said…
I love your couch and recliner! I'd go to sleep in yours to:D
PEA said…
In my next life I want to be a cat! lol They sure do know how to relax!! Your hubby looks soooo very relaxed and it's no wonder...a hammock AND a beautiful pond next to it!! Tell him to go find another place to relax, I'm comin' over to try out the hammock! hehe xox
Misslionheart said…
The perfect place to relax!

Can't beat that, I'd even share the hammock with your Hubby...
(If he'd let me!)
theotherbear said…
Hang on a minute... you feed your husband baby squash for his hairy balls?
Masago said…
Enjoyed...very amusing (we need a hammock like that).
Tiggerlane said…
Dang you folks and your hammocks! I need a hammock. Maybe, since it won't stop raining and we can't pour the footing for our house for TWO MORE WEEKS...I'll just string up a hammock amongst my trees and call it done.

Oh, wait, it will rain on me. Dang.
Jenni said…
Ooh, love that hammock spot.
Kila said…
Your furniture looks wonderful! That's what my next set will be like ;)

When I saw your hubby's spot, my first thought was "mosquitos". Do they leave him alone?
Walker said…
That's just the prettiest dang pond ever! Cat is cute too. My favorite place to relax is the pool./ :-) Natch.
Shauna said…
My Birddog wants a hammock. . .Going to have to check into one like your hubby has - we don't have any trees to tie to!
Looks like you have all varieties of places to relax, really. I'd love to have a hammock. Or a place to hang it up, for that matter.
Tiger Lamb Girl said…
I'm officially in love with your cat. (Ours died a couple of years ago and I still miss him dearly).

I'd so be hogging the hammock by the pond;). Such a beautiful spot for it!!
bichonpawz said…
I REALLY Want your hammock and your pond...It looks so incredibly relaxing!! Contessa is a beautiful kitty!!
