Penny’s Tips Volume 23

Hi everyone!  Here I am with another tip, next week, I get a vacation day because Mom is doing a Chewy review.

This tip is more for people with sticky little people to entertain, but anyone can do this. Tape some pennies ( not me) to the bottom of your shoes and tap away.

Here is a very short video of The Great One tapping away.

Time for The Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section.

1. I have faith in ________________.
2. Yesterday, I ____________________.
3. My favorite place to be is _________.
4. If I was granted one wish, it would be _________.
My answers:
1. I have faith in God, I know everything happens for a reason and God will get me through.
2. Yesterday, I finally got to Build-A-Bear with my great-niece ( The Great One).
She chose the “Elsa” bear, for the bargain price of $7, you can add a piece in her paw that sings “Let it Go”. SO glad we went with that so we could hear it 30 times on the way home 🙂  Just kidding, I had as much fun as she did.
3. My favorite place to be is home with my kitties. And hubby. If I could get my Mom to move in with us, it would be even better.
4. If I was granted one wish, it would be that no animal ever had to suffer. ( How many people thought I would say to meet Nicolas Cage?).

We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

Another outfit for Joanie. She really loves The Great One and stays right with her.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone !

What’s the matter? You act like you just saw a ghost. Oh, that is right, mom was testing out her new Halloween decorations that arrived today from Grandin Road. Dad let her order them for her birthday. They are pretty cool.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Sammy is thankful he got his summer school certificate from Cat Scouts. He had to take 4 classes and pass 4 tests.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day to go with this photo:

Splashing in puddles is lots of fun
anyone can do it even a nun.
Such a  simple pleasure
that makes a memory to treasure.
Please pray and purr for Angel Phoebe’s Purrince, he has had a lot of health issues in his short life. To visit, click here.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
1. I have faith in ________________.

Penny’s Tips Volume 22

Hi everyone! Can you believe I get to post 3 whole  weeks in a row? I hope I don’t run out of tips.

This is a fun game for all ages. See who can stack the most pennies before they tip over.

Mom and Dad tried it, Mom won with 62 pennies. Can anyone top that?

And for kitties, a fun game is to try to walk past the tower of pennies without knocking them over. Millie is good at that ( see them by his back feet).

The Hundred Story Home

We are joining McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks (even though she is on hiatus), Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? 

The Hundred Story Home by Kathy Izard is a touching memoir of one woman’s quest to make the world a better place.

*Disclosure: I received this book for free as part of The Book Look Bloggers book review program. I am not required to write a positive review, all opinions are my own.

Kathy Izard was a graphic designer, happily married with four daughters when she felt what she described as an “insistent whisper”. At the time, she was volunteering at a local soup kitchen in Charlotte, NC. One day, while working at the soup kitchen she meets a man who was formerly homeless and later became a famous author, Denver Moore. He asks her one simple question that changes the course of her life. “Where are the beds? ”

Prior to that , Kathy thought the soup kitchen was doing a great job serving the homeless of Charlotte. She had never given a thought to where they go after they eat. This one question inspires her to quit her job so she can find a way to create homes for the homeless.It takes a lot of work, prayer and donations, but she finds a way.

Throughout the memoir, she revisits her childhood. Until she was six, she had a fairly normal life with two sisters and her parents. Eventually, her mother’s bipolar disorder takes her away from the family for years.The author realizes now how easily her family could have become homeless because of this. So not only does she provide homes for the homeless, she finds a way to keep them stable once there through medical and psychological care.

Unfortunately, her focus on helping the homeless takes her away from her family and even when she is with them, she is not giving her all. It takes finding a letter of despair her college aged daughter wrote to make her realize this. Eventually, she finds a happy medium between work and family, but it takes a lot of effort.

I highly recommend this book as an inspiration to anyone that feels they are not living the life they were meant to live. Kathy Izard says, ” I wrote The Hundred Story Home not to convince you to help solve the homelessness in your community but to help solve the homelessness in you. ”

This book also has a reader’s guide and FAQ from readers at the end. I think it would be perfect for church groups or book clubs. It would also be a great gift for a friend that needs a little push to living their dreams.

I am going to spread the joy and give this book away so if you are interested, just tell me in the comment section. We will announce the winner on Wednesday’s post. I can only afford to mail it in the USA though, sorry, but books are heavy.
