Hopping Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww…Mondays, McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Mewsic Moves Me ( hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.) Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? And it is day 8 of the  A-Z Blogging Challenge.

For the letter H, I made a hedgehog, but you need to use your imagination because it didn’t come out exactly as I had hoped it would.

My spark is a quote from William Arthur Ward. “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. ” Remember to always express gratitude.

I have been reading the memoirs of Reynold Price. I started with A Whole New Life: An Illness and a Healing which was his third memoir. He was a fiction author that survived cancer of his spinal cord that left him a parapalegic. This memoir was about that ordeal, I enjoyed his writing so much that I got his other 3 memoirs out of the library. Ardent Spirits was about his time at Oxford University which was also interesting. Once I get through the other 2, I may look into his fiction. Has anyone ever read his books?

This week for Mewsic Moves Me has Easter songs for a theme.

  1. From The Passion of the Christ Film, Brad Paisley and Sara Evans-New Again.

 

2. Cat Stevens -Morning Has Broken (1976)-Not an Easter song, but I think it is appropriate.

3. Gene Autry- Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Sorry this was such a long post.

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! I can see why Joanie likes this blankie so much, good thing Mom got her a backup one.

Brody has a comfy spot too. He says there is plenty of room for you Leia.

Sammy is going to a party at Cat Scouts today. He is supposed to wear a hat so he chose this one. I wonder if he is going Wabbit Hunting too?

Tomorrow is H day for The A-Z Blogging Challenge- any guesses on what Mom made?

Ten Things of Thankful

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.

Thankful Thursday

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

  I iz thankful that mom bought me a new blankie a few weeks ago and I liked it so much that she bought me a backup blankie. You may wonder why I get 2 blankies. I am special because I sleep between my Mom and Dad for most of the night. My blankies have Pusheen the Cat on them , Petco clearance $3.00.

Mom said to thank everyone who gave suggestions for the book vases. She is going to try some of your ideas and will post the results when they are completed.

And here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is the photo we had to write a poem about: for today.

Sometimes problems get you down
instead of a smile, you want to frown.
You feel like you are in the dark
in a flood without an ark.
Instead of feeling dread
just keep moving ahead.
If you try with all your might,
you will soon see the light.

And for the A-Z Blogging Challenge, we have Sammy posing with an eyeball.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for Friday.
