Morning Coffee | Random Thoughts & Oddities {The Crazy Cat Lady Edition}



Paul at Lat43 does these hysterical Morning Tea blog posts which are a brain dump of whatever pops into his head while he's writing them. I decided to steal his idea. Except, I'm drinking coffee while I write this and he drinks tea, so it isn't really stealing, is it?

So, here we go - all of the random nonsense floating through my head while I sip on my morning coffee.

  • I'm currently visiting my family in Portland, Oregon and staying with my sister. She has two cats so I'm able to get a little Crazy Cat Lady fix while I'm here.
  • This is Georgie. I tried to explain to her why jumping up on the stove is a bad idea - you know, burning your paws on a hot burner and all that. She seemed perplexed by my concerns.


  • I'd show you a picture of her other cat, Sebastian, but the only one I have of him is one where he's sleeping. Normally, that'd probably be a cute shot, but he sleeps with his eyes open, which is super creepy. You're never quite sure if he's dead or not.
  • Sebastian is quite displeased with the current placement of his water bowl in the kitchen. During the middle of the night, he nudges it into the center of the room, spilling water all over the floor in the process. I know because I came down early one morning and stepped in a big puddle. I wonder who will win the water bowl battle in the end - Sebastian or my sister?
  • It's freezing in Portland. I'm currently wearing two pairs of socks and thinking of putting another pair on. I wish I had a fur coat like cats do.
  • My sister made chocolate chip cookies for me. She's a good sister.
  • Chocolate chip cookies are great for breakfast.
  • Chocolate chip cookies are great at night with a cup of cocoa.
  • I have competition for the chocolate chip cookie supply. My nieces like them too. I thought about hiding the cookies from them. Does that make me a bad aunt?
  • I think my sister is going to have to make more cookies.
  • I saw this magnet at a store the other day. I thought about buying it for Scott because he's from North Dakota, but then I remembered that we live on a boat and we don't have a normal fridge that you can put magnets on.



  • We're going to the coast this weekend. One of the highlight is going to be getting pancakes at the Pig n' Pancake at Canon Beach. 
  • We should probably go to the Tillamook Cheese Factory while we're on the coat too. Not only do they have great cheese, they also have great ice cream.
  • I should probably eat something before I write blog posts. I just read back through this and it seems to be all about food. If only I could remember where I hid the chocolate chip cookies.

What did you think about over your morning cup of coffee, tea or other favorite beverage? What did you have for breakfast?

  1. Nothing wrong with cookies for breakfast.
    Have a great time at your sister's and avoid the puddles.

    1. Sorry about that :-) I should probably have a warning advising people to have a snack before they read my blog posts.

  3. Delightful read, as always. I tend to write my Julia Cameron style morning pages over breakfast, though they've become shorter as I'm so focused on my prose. ~grin~ Today I ate a cranberry English muffin with strawberry jam and a melty Swiss cheese slice washed down with a glass of milk. Before you recoil, look up the Monte Cristo sandwich. Be well!

    1. I'm not recoiling at all - that sounds like a great breakfast!

  4. I've not had my coffee yet or my breakfast either. I'll get to that shortly.

    I linked this post to Feline Friday because of that pawsome looking cat.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend visiting with your family. ♥

    1. Wow, reading blogs without any coffee. I can't imagine. Thanks for adding me to Feline Friday.

  5. I had country ham, red eye gravy, biscuit and a poached egg for breakfast, but chocolate cookies sounds a lot better.

    1. I'm not a big fan of poaches eggs, but the rest of your breakfast sounds delicious. Although, I'm assuming the red eye gravy doesn't have actual eyes in it, does it?

  6. I’m liking the sound of Sebastian! My sister-in-law had a cat called Sebastian once, or Sebastipuss as he was more commonly known.

  7. I bet you really are freezing. All that chocolate will give you fuel for staying warm. We'll be going directly from Ecuador to Seattle without stopping at the boat to gather our winter clothes. Your post reminds me that there will probably be a shopping trip in my near future.

    1. Wow, no winter clothing for Seattle. You're definitely going to need to do some shopping or borrow some clothes.

  8. It's cold in Oregon because it's also damp. That's what gets you.

    All it will take is one jump on a hot stove and Georgie will never do it again.

    1. It's actually really dry here right now. Hardly any rain. I'm almost missing the humidity in Florida.

  9. In all of my years of owning all sorts of different cats, I've literally never had one dumb enough to jump on the stove. I think I'd just be outright flummoxed by it. Just...jesus cat. You gon' die.

    1. Fortunately, my sister rarely cooks so the chances of Georgie jumping up onto a hot stove is pretty slim.

  10. You'd think the cat would learn the stove is NOT the place to be. Maybe eventually.

    No, it's not bad at all to hide cookies from kids. Sweets are bad for them, right? You're just helping them grow big and strong by eating all the cookies first. :)

    1. I love the rationale - I was doing them a favor :-)
