Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday blog hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day.

  First, I have a question. Who told Joanie to have Gremmie guard her tent?

I am thankful that we have a lot of warm and soft places to snooze so I don’t need the tent.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. We were asked to write a poem based on this photo.

 

Angry waves surround
pirates pillaging the ship
no help to be found

And the winner of the Valentine’s Giveaway is Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles.

And here are The Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? And More.

Hi everyone! We are joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? ,McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Comedy Plus’ Awwww…Mondays blog hops. And because I love to hop (virtually), I am also joining Curious as a Cathy’s Mewsic Moves Me.

I have gotten to read a lot lately thanks to the cold weather and snow. I just finished Saving Charlotte: A Mother and the Power of Intuition by Pia de Jong. I read it over 2 days because it was so interesting and easy to read. A beautiful story of a family following their instincts instead of doing what the doctors recommended.

Unqualified by Anna Faris was a fun read. I have never seen any of her movies or her tv show, but I enjoyed her book and may start watching her tv show. I also enjoyed The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down by Haemin Sunim, a book that will help you to be more mindful.

I thought Emmy looked cute dangling her foot off the couch.

For Mewsic Moves Me, the theme this week is Country. I enjoy most country music except the really sad ones. Here are some of  my favorites:

 

My Spark is the song above, we should all live like we are dying.

Marg’s Animals had an unexpected loss yesterday of beautiful BG.

 

 

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfies Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

Mom promised me my Gremmie won’t ever turn into the bad kind so I took the plastic off of him. I got him a skateboard to play with, but he can’t wear a helmet ( hims ears are too big). Does anyone know where to get a helmet for a gremlin?

Prancie keeps stealing my tent.

  I do not! It belongs to both of us. Gremmie is all yours though.

 

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.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day. 

I am thankful that I can still jump up to the tall bureau this kitty cave is on. Joanie thinks it is hers, but she needs to share.

Poor Joanie, she watched Gremlins and now she is very afraid of Gremmie getting wet. She covered him in plastic to protect him ( don’t worry, she gave him air holes to breathe and eat).

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

Stairs leading somewhere
go up if you dare.
Nothing is that scary
not like the movie, Carrie.
Maybe there is a treasure
something you can’t measure.
Now climb those stairs,
I promise there are no bears.

 

Grammie has been complaining that kaTwo never gets blog time so here she is , helping with the blog.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie at McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two. Right now, they both have worpress blogs so they can’t display the link on their blog, you will be redirected to a separate page. We are working to find a new link service that is compatible with wordpress, any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

1. Trust________________.

2. I would protest _____________________.
3. I have                  since                .

4. Right now, I                   .

 

Sparks and More

Hi everyone!  Today we are joining It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? The kiddy lit version hosted by Teacher Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers. We are also joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…..Mondays and McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks.

Joanie is posing with our book recommendation.

When I found out that our friend Cathy of Curious as a Cathy, had written a children’s book years ago, I was eager to get a copy for my great-niece. Cathy even wrote a little note for my great-niece and autographed it.  I will have to save this for her for a while because the book is for slightly older kids than a 2-year-old.  I bought the book so I am not under obligation to write a review, but I want to because I enjoyed it.

It is a cute story about 2 girls visiting their grandparents. While there, they also visit with their great-grandma and she tells them the story of a panther that chased her as a child. There is even a black cat in the book which made it extra special for me.  I think family is very important so I enjoyed that there were several generations together in the story. Cathy got the inspiration from her family and the girls portrayed in the story are her daughters.

If you are interested, you can purchase it at Amazon.

And our Spark for today is not a quote, but a link to a site with free meditations. All you need to do is register with them for free and then you can listen to several free guided meditations. Calm.com  I have not done one yet, but I hope to this week. I think everyone can benefit from meditation.

 

 

Selfie Sunday

Hi everyone! I don’t have much to report this week. Mom has been acting pretty normal ( for her).  She did start her decluttering challenge that she told you about the other day. The first room is the bedroom ( not the closet though, that gets it’s own week). Mostly she just moved the crap that doesn’t belong in there and moved it to the dining room for now.

Brody wants to say hi to his sweet Leia.

  Hi Leia!

And Joanie is still enjoying Gremmie.

Gremmie is playing with Weebles.
