Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful. And Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

My art ties in with The A-Z Blogging Challenge actually my crocheted Minion is my art because I am too lazy to edit the photo.

Much better than yesterday’s lemon. I am quite proud of this one.

KaTwo is posing with it. My poor cats have to pose with everything, but they don’t get to play with these items because I am giving them all away in a big giveaway at the end of the month.

Here are my thankfuls- all book related this week.

  1. Went to my first book sale of the year with a friend.
  2. Found some books I didn’t even know existed.
  3. Going back to the book sale today for half price day- 50 cents for paperbacks and $1 for hardcover.
  4. Bookstores- I went to Barnes and Noble this week and made a list of 12 books to get from the library.
  5. The library and being able to get books from any library in the region delivered right to town.
  6. My friends Suzanne and Dave sent me some books for The Great One and for me too.
  7. Kindle- I prefer real books, but I get some good freebies on there.
  8. My kitties like to hang out with me when I read.

These last two are self-promotions-sorry. Most of you know about these and probably already own them, but just in case there are new readers.

9. Spooky’s story was included in Black Cats Tell All. click here.To order your own,

10. Some anecdotes about my cats are included in Makin’ Biscuits: Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them- to get your own copy- click here.

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful

My art ties in with The A-Z Blogging Challenge. Noel is posing with our G, a ghost. I tried to put a black frame around it and ended up with this.

Here are my thankfuls-

  1. We had a wonderful Easter.
  2. Enough leftovers for most of the week, and I even sent everyone home with some too.
  3. The decadent pie my niece made with a chocolate graham crust and chocolate chip cookie dough inside ( not actual dough, but tasty) topped with whipped cream and drizzed with chocolate syrup.
  4. Thankful our church does food blessing for Easter, here is a photo of some of the beautiful baskets people make. Ours is not included, we keep everything wrapped because we are germphobes.

5, Another vet free week.

6.The Great One usually teases me when I want a kiss goodbye, but today she came right over for a kiss.

7. A surprise package in the mail with my favorite candy 🙂

8. I am thankful that I am more laid back than I used to be. My niece was so worried about The Great One breaking something and I just said, “she’d be doing me a favor, I have too many things anyway.” I remember crying over things my niece used to break like ears off of rabbit statues.

9. We got an inch of snow today- and it melted by the end of the day.

10.Hubby bought me a pineapple, I know that sounds odd, but I have been saying I wanted to get one and haven’t so when he went to get cat litter, he also got me a pineapple which was thoughtful.

Ten Things of Thankful

  2. Thankful Lent is almost over so I can indulge in chocolate and Doritos again.

  4. Chinese food lunch with my mom after pedicure.
  5. Tallulah had her checkup and her mouth has healed nicely.
  6. The checkup was free.
  7. Emmy is always on my lap, she is truly a lap cat now.
  8.  One morning this week, my hubby got up 2 hours before me and when I woke up, Joanie and Emmy were on the bed in close proximity with no problems.
  9. A surprise package from a friend came in the mail.
  10. Hubby and I made horseradish, we do that twice a year at Christmas and Easter.

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful.

My first thankful is also my art for the week. Online puzzles, they are providing me with a lot of amusement. I made one for St. Patrick’s Day with a photo I took several years ago when my niece and her cat, Nixon lived here. He is 11 years old now and doing well. It took me 19 minutes and 37 seconds to complete, I guarantee you that you can beat that time.

2. Thankful we only got 4 inches of snow on Tuesday, some places in Massachusetts got 27 inches.

3. Thankful a good cardiologist is only an hour away for Emmy. I am sure she would like one even closer, but it isn’t that far.

4. Thankful that Tallulah is recovering well from her big dental.

5. Thankful for a surprise package that arrived in the mail just as we returned from Emmy’s appointment. It was a pleasant surprise especially during this stressful week with so much going on with the kitties. Thank you to Rachel at Three Chatty Cats for all these great treats and for the kitty stickers she sent for “The Great One”.

There were even photos of adorable Harley enjoying his Tooth Fairy gifts.Joanie agreed to pose, but she called dibs on the 12 oz. bag of Temptations 🙂

6. Thankful my Mom stayed with the cats while we were with Emmy. I am always afraid to leave the house unattended for fear that someone would break in and harm them or they would get out and be eaten by coyotes. ( We had coyote tracks in the snow around our house).

7.Parchment paper- I used to always burn my cookies until I started using it.I made a batch of cherry winks for my hubby, but I used green cherries for St. Patrick’s Day.

8.Joanie is thankful that Mrs. Potato Head and Gremmie are friends again.

9. I am thankful for toys, “The Great One” and I had fun playing grocery store and vet clinic the other day.

10. A great nap that made up that hour we lost.

 

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art and Ten Things of Thankful Blog Hops. My art this week is my new crochet creation. I have been finding a lot of new patterns while searching for my A-Z ideas.

Crocheted vases are so easy and fun to make. Then I added pussy willows because they don’t need water. I gave these to my friend who runs the senior center in the next town. They will be centerpieces on the lunch tables and then can be given away.I have made some more too already for myself and family.

And here are my ten thankfuls.

1,2) Hubby and I had our annual dermatologist appointment and all is well. I love going together so I can point to everything I want checked. The dermatologist said, “wives save lives.”

3) Lunch out with the hubby after our appointment.

4) My mom stayed with the cats while we were out and catered to their every whim.

5,6) Coffee with a friend and her adult daughter had time to come too. We always have fun.

7) Time spent with my mom and “The Great One”. Even though whenever I sing, she says not to and cries if I won’t stop- I guess my college choir teacher was doing everyone a favor when she told me to mouth the words.

8) No power outage for this past storm.

9) Thankful that my hubby plows our yard so I only have a little shoveling to do.We got 10 inches on Thursday.

10) The library finally got some books in for me, I have been cutting into my emergency stash of about 40 books.

And here are my thankfuls-

  1. We lost power Friday from the storm, but it was back in 2 hours.

  4. Breakfast with my mom, niece and the great one.
  5. I am thankful that the great one has so many people that love her, I wish all kids we so lucky.

  8. New episodes of my favorite shows on tv this week.

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art and Ten Things of Thankful Blog Hops.

Our art today is a puzzle of Emmy. I love doing online puzzles from Colehaus Cats , Basil and One Spoiled Cat so I decided to make one of Emmy. When you got to the page, it is labeled Phoebe because I made one of her last year. Emmy is wearing a Dr. Seuss hat in anticipation of Dr. Seuss Day. Tomorrow she will announce a giveaway to celebrate.

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful.

Today is National Wear Red Day to raise awareness of heart disease. It is for humans, but Emmy has a heart problem so she has agreed to wear a red scarf. I framed her photo and added the text on Lunapic. Unfortunately, she didn’t agree to keep her eyes open.

Here are my thankfuls-

1. Coffee with a friend on Tuesday.

2. Tallulah went to the vet Monday, she has lost a lot of weight. I am thankful it is just her thyroid which is easy to deal with.

3. Prancie also went to the vet, she got a rabies shot. I asked for a one year one so there would be less stuff going into her. We still don’t really know what happened to her a few months ago so I don’t want to take an chances.

4. Lunch and shopping with my Mom on Wednesday.

5. Bargain on socks at Macy’s, between the sale and plenti points, I got 6 pairs for $2. I love a bargain.

6. Lots of reading time this week.

7. Hubby and I went to the nursing home to visit his former secretary ( for 27 years) -she was doing well and the place is cheerful and doesn’t have the typical nursing home smell.

8. Thankful that my parents kept me safe from all harm, I feel so bad when I hear of kids that are abused in many different ways For example, all those gymnasts abused at the hands of a supposed Doctor.

9. Thankful for my warm home in this very cold and snowy weather.

10. A phone call from one of my friends who is a nun, it was nice to catch up.

Here are my thankfuls-

1. Someone calling me Miss instead of the dreadful Ma’am.
2. My great-niece’s growing vocabulary, she told my mom and I to calm down the other day 🙂
3. Nice and Easy hair color- why pay for a full color every 6 weeks when I can spend $6 on this?
4. Pedicure with my mom.
5. Chinese food lunch with my mom after the pedicures- even if we looked odd in flip flops when it was only 30 degrees.
6. Breakfast with a friend.
7. A bargain- found 2 long sleeved v-necks for only $3/each.
8. Joanie sleeps between us every night, not the whole night, but she is always there in the morning.
9. The Babies R Us closest to me is closing , I am not happy they filed bankruptcy, but I am sick of people registering there for baby showers when they are so expensive.
10. A warm home, it sure has been a cold winter.
