About

me & girls at the beach

Me & the girls at the beach on a cold, breezy day.

Hello! My name is Patricia. I’m a realist and a fan of simple living and mindful eating.

New Bloggy Cat (NBC) is a mixed bag of all the things in life that matter – quotes, epigrams, life-lessons, tributes, anecdotes, jokes and delish recipes that I believe would make a memorable and priceless gift to my daughters.

Life isn’t picture perfect. There are moments when things get nutty, messy and chaotic, the reality of life with a meticulous hubby and two gorgeous but very demanding daughters. One is precocious & perspicacious and the other loquacious & vivacious. I love my perfectly imperfect family. With them around, there is never a dull moment and certainly no shortage of melodrama.

My eldest daughter has just turned 13 last month.  And she has always been cool, calm and collected. She is capable of great focus, which comes in handy when completing pretty much any task.  It’s interesting to see the way she embraces solitude and connect with her innermost thoughts and rich inner worlds.

My second daughter aka drama queen is 8 years old.  She calls herself a potato and thinks she’s the future top model and famous singer.  She’s always happy and overflowing with love, joy, excitement and energy.  And she finds her energy sapped when she spends too much time alone.

I love coffee and chocolate.  The smell of coffee is enough to keep me in high spirits and chocolate makes me happy.  I’m passionate about art, books, food, ideas, comedy, beaches, movies, homemade stuff and all furry creatures big and small.

Thanks for dropping by, liking my post and following my blog. If you are a mom, may God bless you with overflowing buckets of love, joy, peace, laughter and patience. (✿◠‿◠)

  5. Hi Pat,
    Thank you very much for visiting my blog and your very warm and encouraging feedback. I could use a few overflowing buckets of love, joy, peace and patience dealing with my kids at the moment. The ups and downs of parenting…all within the same day…can be rather perplexing but rewarding, enriching and the stuff that makes you tear your hair out.
    Blessing to you and your family,
    Rowena

    • It’s a pleasure, Rowena. Yes, the ups and downs of parenting. I always joke that whenever I feel like I’m going insane it’s time to prepare the next meal for my family. Blessings to you and family too, Pat ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ

  7. Until our recent chain of comments over on Victo’s blog, I was unaware of your blog. I don’t know how I’ve missed it, but I’m making up for it now. I’ll be following you so I don’t miss future stories.

    Also, I have chosen you as one of my nine blogs in That’s So Jacob’s Ninth Month Blog Challenge (http://www.thatssojacob.wordpress.com)! I challenge you to find nine blogs you find interesting and give them a comment to brighten their day…well, eight other blogs and mine 🙂 Copy this message in your comment and enjoy your new blog friends!

    There is absolutely no obligation, of course – accept the challenge or not, as you wish – but if you happen to find new blogs to follow, that’s always a plus.

    BTW, I noticed that you’ve liked or commented on a number of the posts on my blog. In appreciation, I hereby award you the Cordelia’s Mom Enthusiasm Award: http://cordeliasmomstill.com/2014/07/31/award-fu-follow-up-you-smut-minded-people/

    Yay, to both of us!

  12. Very sweet children, dear Patricia 🙂
    Thanks also for sharing a good portion of humor which I like too – there are many serious things in life that do not make us love and smile, but they’re also many things which put a positive strain on our facial muscles (and abdominal muscles), as well as our mental muscles which make us laugh and smile.
    Thank you, my friend 🙂
    Have a great time, although in these difficult times we are facing right now.
    Didi
