Missing Moo

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade.

Moo is missing. Flat Moo is having a wonderful time in Jerusalem, we will tell you about that tomorrow. The stuffed Moo left on a cruise for Alaska and Canada July 19 and I haven’t heard from her since. Maybe it is a really long cruise? ( I used imagechef to make this).

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 121

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. September is the perfect month for __________________.
 
2. This month, I am looking forward to __________________.
3. My morning routine always includes _________.

My answers:

  1. September is the perfect month for picking apples and making apple pie.
  2. This month, I am looking forward to cooler weather- I just know it is coming soon.
  3. My morning routine always includes coffee and kitty cuddles.
  4. I have a love-hate relationship with tuna. I know that is an odd answer, but it is true. Sometimes I love a tuna salad sandwich or tuna casserole and then all of a sudden it repulses me. That is the only fish I eat and it has to be solid white albacore.

Lyrical  # Challenge, Day One. Thank you Cathy ( Curious as a Cathy) for nominating me for this challenge. Here are the rules:

1 Thank the person who nominated you.
2 Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
3 Nominate three other bloggers each day.

Today is my niece’s 5th wedding anniversary. One of my favorite songs is I Loved Her First by Heartland ( written by Elliot Park and Walt Aldridge). She danced with her Father to this song and I cried. Actually, it is so beautiful I cry every time I hear it.

Look at the two of you dancing that way
Lost in the moment and each other’s face
So much in love, you’re alone in this place
Like there’s nobody else in the world
I was enough for her not long ago
I was her number one, she told me so
And she still means the world to me
Just so you know
So be careful when you hold my girl
Time changes everything, life must go on
And I’m not gonna stand in your way
I loved her first
I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it’s still hard to give her away
I loved her first
How could that beautiful woman with you
Be that same freckled face kid that I knew?
The one that I read all those fairy tales to
And tucked into bed all those nights
And I knew the first time I saw you with her
It was only a matter of time
I loved her first
I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it’s still hard to give her away
I loved her first
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
Someday you might know what I’m going through
When a miracle smiles up at you
Yeah, I loved her first
I am not good at following rules so I am not nominating 3 people. If you like music and want to join in the fun then consider yourself nominated.

Thankful Thursday

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop

Prancie and I are thankful that our book is in print, well, this is the copy we need to check then it will be ready in 6 weeks.

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

Playgrounds are lots of fun
a place to play and run.
You can swing real high
with your folks nearby.
Don’t forget the see-saw and merry-go-round
so much to do-look around!
And for the most fun ride,
don’t forget the slide.
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.

Penny’s Tips Volume 24

Hi everyone!

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Did you miss me last week?

I have a great tip this week, but mean Mom wouldn’t listen to me when I offered it to her.

She made this lottery tree for a friend’s birthday party. She put a branch in a small glass bowl filled with sand. I suggested she fill the bowl with lucky pennies instead of sand, but she said the party had a beach theme. I think she was just too cheap to fill it with pennies.

Don’t you think my idea was better?

Before I go, I want to let  Bionic Basil’s family know we are praying for him and his family. He announced on Sunday that he doesn’t have long on this earth. We are very sad. To visit him, click here.

Mewsic , Books and More

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?And we are also joining Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.)

I am currently reading Once Upon a Farm by Rory Feek and I recently finished his other memoir, This Life I Live: One Man’s Extraordinary, Ordinary Life and the Woman Who Changed It Forever.

I was not familiar with Rory or his wife , Joey  who passed away in 2016. They had a tv show about their life together, but I didn’t know about it until I read these books. They both were country writers and singers. She helped raise his 2 daughters and sadly, when they finally had a child, Joey was diagnosed with cancer and only survived until the child’s second birthday.  Despite life’s problems, he maintains a positive attitude and writes of what he has learned from life.

Today is a freebie day on the mewsic so I chose songs written by Rory.

  1. Blake Shelton’s Some Beach- I always liked this, but had no idea that Rory Feek wrote it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTT2LEyjdC4
  2. Joey and Rory-When I’m Gone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcpjSMmWUDw This was recorded in 2012, long before she was diagnosed with cancer.

 

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 120

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. The best teacher I ever had was _____________________.
 
2. The worst teacher I ever had was ____________________.
3. I recently learned how to _________.
4. I think everyone should know how to _________.

My answers:

  1. The best teacher I ever had was my English teacher in high school that I had sophomore and junior year. I have had many good teachers in my life, but she really stands out.
  2.  The worst teacher I ever had was a Geometry teacher in high school. I don’t think she really knew what she was doing, she used to just read off of her notes and couldn’t answer questions from students.
  3. I recently learned how to get the batter/breadcrumbs to stay on my onion rings.
  4. I think everyone should know how to read.
