Shavua Tov (a Good Week) to you all.
It has certainly been a Good Week for Mummy. She had her hair cut and went shopping for new clothes and for all kinds of fancy foods, and She went on a solitary nature ramble here in the 'hood to a lookout point that overlooks the Old City of Jerusalem (it's just behind the Enchanted Forest) where, every spring, the hill is covered with lupins (which is why, unsurprisingly, it is called Givat Haturmussim - גבעת התורמוסים - Lupin Hill). Mummy will be writing about that in her own blog later in the week.
Today We are celebrating Shushan Purim here in Jerusalem. This year, because Purim fell on a Friday and Shushan Purim therefore fell on Shabbat (the Sabbath), We have what is called "Triple Purim", because there are certain mitzvot (religious duties) that cannot be purr-formed on Shabbat. You can read all about it in the link Mummy added. Mummy delivered tasty Purim portions to her neighbours (mishloach manot - משלוח מנות) and received many sweet morsels herself. We have NO DOUBT that when She actually opens them up and starts eating them, She will share with Us (hint, hint, Mummy!)
As usual in Our Weekly Post, We are purr-ticipating in the Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by the Wise and Beautiful Athena and her HuMum, Marie, as well as the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the Delightfully Unpredictable Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet.
We thought it would be a Good Idea to use the Blog Hops to share with you all the Joy of Purr-im)!
So, furrst of all, instead of the usual Selfie, here is a furry, furry rare Ussie - all three of Us snoozing together on the sofa, in Our Purim Costumes. We think Mummy was furry sneaky and clever to capture this shot:
