2. An extracurricular activity I participated in was ___________________________.
3. I want to learn _________.
4. It takes courage to _________.

My answers:

  1. My favorite subject in school was Algebra,I just loved solving equations. After college, I was a tutor for several years and enjoyed helping others understand it.
  2. An extracurricular activity I participated in was student council. I was a member from grades 10-12 and the secretary for 2 years.
  3. I want to learn how to draw, I would love to be able to illustrate a children’s book I wrote myself. Prancie’s  Prayer will have an illustrator from the publisher, but maybe next time.
  4. It takes courage to open one’s heart to another pet after you have lost a beloved one, but I will continue to do it for the rest of my life. I would rather feel pain that never have all the love they give.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Mom is thankful to all who donated to Button’s surgery. Also to those who shared, purred and prayed. We will keep you updated on his progress.

  Mom is also thankful that her talking Sheldon still works. Do you remember him? Phoebe wrote about him here.

The Great One likes to give Peppa Pig and her family a bath in the dog’s water dish at home ( when no one is looking). So Mom thought she would be a cool Auntie and gave her a big bowl of water for them to swim in along with some facecloths for beach towels. Well, Mom went in the kitchen for a refill on her coffee and when she came back into the living room The Great One handed her a wet Sheldon, I guess she thought he wanted to go swimming too- MOL! Mom put him in a bowl of rice to dry him out and he still talks.

Here is my poem for  Sammy’s Poetry Day.

Once again I went with a haiku to go with this photo.

Quiet, relaxing
no cell phone or internet
sit back and enjoy
And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with the second two.

Not So Wordless Wednesday

Hi everyone! We have lots of photos from Moo’s first stop to show you. First though, I want to tell you about a Go Fund Me my friend started for his friend whose cat, Buttons needs surgery on his leg or it will need to be amputated.  If you donate $15 , I will send you some catnip toys ( US only, sorry). And if you donate $50, he will design a badge or photo for you. He designed my blog logo and our fill-in badges. In addition, I will also send you catnip toys. If you do donate, let me know in the comment section and I will contact you. Thank you!

And here are photos from Moo’s first stop at Cat Scout Charles’ home.

Penny’s Tips Volume 16

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Tuesday Fun Blog Hop.

My tip today is to use pennies to make a puzzle. We put all these pennies on top of a frame then Mom took a photo and uploaded it to jigsaw planet.

It took Mom 35 minutes to complete the puzzle, I guarantee you that you will beat her time. She is the slowest puzzle doer ever.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

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?

River of Time: My Descent into Depression and How I Emerged with Hope by Naomi Judd with Marcia Wielke was excellent. I have read all her previous books and admired her honesty in telling all the details of her life, mistakes and all. This book is the same as she gives all the details of her severe depression including being so desperate that she endured electroshock therapy. It seems hard to believe that someone so successful could get into such a deep depression, but heredity plays a role in this too.

I’ve Been Thinking . . .Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life by Maria Shriver is also well worth reading. Each chapter tells a lesson she has learned in life as well as a prayer or meditation at the end to tie in with the lesson. I have always admired the Kennedy family’s dedication to the service of helping others less fortunate.

My spark for today is a quote from Maria Shriver, “Time is our most precious resource, but very few of us use it as wisely as we could. We rush around so much that sometimes we forget to actually live. ”

Joanie was not particularly cooperative for her photo shoot.

Penny will be here tomorrow with one of her tips and Wednesday we will be showing photos of Moo’s first stop.

We are also joining the Appreciate the Moments blog hop hosted by Everyday Dog Mom and Dog Mom Days. The word this month is summer and nothing says summer like a kitty in a bikini.   I love this badge that Ann of Zoolatry made for us back in 2015.
