Sunday Selfies with Esme.




Once again we are joining The Cat On My Head  for their fun and amusing , Sunday Selfies. This Sunday,  Esme is participating and has submitted her photo. Esme's full name is: Esmeralda Djali Willow Tree Figgy Pudding. Her name is bigger and longer than all of her four pounds put together and that is exactly the way she likes it! She, like all cats, is a sun worshipper. In this selfie , she is doing just that, worshipping the sun, with a hint of her own sense of royalty and elegance added for good measure!




























We hope you will join us next Sunday in participating along with The Cat on My Head and other fellow bloggers as we share our selfies with you.  Don't forget to Hop and visit the other participants!








Have a Sunny Sunday.
See you tomorrow!

State of Enlightenment.








 Esme, " Shhh. I am hiding from LP."













Esme, " I squeezed all four pounds of me between the spare dinner plates and a silver planter!"











 Esem, " See how minuscule and angelic I appear?!"












 Esme, " I am above suspicion, crimeless and exemplary!"











 Esme, " I did not knock over a planter in order to play with the pebbles!"











Esme, " I didn't do it!!  But I know that "you know who" will blame little ole me on account I am on the table where the planter lives!  And my paws have a little bit of dirt on them as do my teeth. . . "











Esme, " I don't care! I am guilt -free. Shhhh. I am returning to a state of enlightenment as I worship the sun. My reputation is unimpeachable! Do I not look the picture of innocence?!" "












Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
See you soon.
