Thankful Thursday

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

We are also joining Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo:

Look! A tiny door.
I wonder if it is a little store?
Maybe some forest fairies live there.
It is certainly not the home of a bear.
A place for garden gnomes to gather together
to hide in all kinds of bad weather?
I was wrong, it is the home of elves
they had lots of cookies on their shelves.

Notice I wrote HAD lots of cookies 🙂

Sammy is modeling mom’s W creation for The A-Z Blogging Challenge

A worm

Mom had to make another one because Sammy claimed this one for himself and she would never tell her little Cat Scout that he can’t have something he wants.

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.

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful. And Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade.

My art ties in with The A-Z Blogging Challenge actually my crocheted Minion is my art because I am too lazy to edit the photo.

Much better than yesterday’s lemon. I am quite proud of this one.

KaTwo is posing with it. My poor cats have to pose with everything, but they don’t get to play with these items because I am giving them all away in a big giveaway at the end of the month.

Here are my thankfuls- all book related this week.

  1. Went to my first book sale of the year with a friend.
  2. Found some books I didn’t even know existed.
  3. Going back to the book sale today for half price day- 50 cents for paperbacks and $1 for hardcover.
  4. Bookstores- I went to Barnes and Noble this week and made a list of 12 books to get from the library.
  5. The library and being able to get books from any library in the region delivered right to town.
  6. My friends Suzanne and Dave sent me some books for The Great One and for me too.
  7. Kindle- I prefer real books, but I get some good freebies on there.
  8. My kitties like to hang out with me when I read.

These last two are self-promotions-sorry. Most of you know about these and probably already own them, but just in case there are new readers.

9. Spooky’s story was included in Black Cats Tell All. click here.To order your own,

10. Some anecdotes about my cats are included in Makin’ Biscuits: Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them- to get your own copy- click here.

Thankful Thursday

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

I am thankful for mom’s lap.

And that Prancie had to model today’s A-Z Challenge creation.

I think mom cheated because she made the same thing last year and called it a yarmulke ( click here) and now she is calling it a kippa.

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

Lots of fresh veggies and fruit
even beans that make you toot
Something is not right
an important ingredient not in sight
Someone is going to get some lip
this farmer’s market has no nip!

 

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.

Penny’s Tips Volume 14

Hi everyone! I have another tip for you,  this one is good for when you have a lot of pennies. It is also a great use for a sock that lost its mate.

You just fill the sock with pennies, tie the end and put it in the freezer. It makes a great ice pack for when you get injured.

Today is already I day on the A-Z Blogging Challenge.Mom made an icicle, she makes lots of these to put on the bottom branches of the Christmas tree. We love to steal them at night. I think she should spray them with catnip spray.

Emmy is checking it out.

 

 

 

 

 

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.

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.

Penny’s Tips Volume 13

Hi everyone! I have an unusual tip, more of a question actually. Mom made these book vases and she thinks they look to plain. I suggested she decorate them with pennies, but she doesn’t want to.

Any better suggestions of how to perk them up?

Millie is modeling Mom’s A-Z Challenge , C creation- coal , she makes these for naughty kitties at Christmas.

Don’t forget to comment on yesterday’s post to enter the giveaway for this catnip mat and socks ( Joanie is not included). Giveaway closes at 10 PM ( EST) April 3rd.

 

 

Temptations Tuesday

Hi everyone! Today is not usually my day to write, but Mom said I could because I have lots to tell you and Thursdays are busy with blog hops.

Grammie was here Monday and look what she bought for ME. My favorite flavor of Temptations. I love her so very much.

Mom says I can’t eat as many treats as I want anymore because I have high blood pressure. I am taking a pill for it though and it is fine now so I don’t know why I can’t keep having lots of treats. Maybe if Mom would stop schlepping me off to the vets my blood pressure wouldn’t be so high.

I got mail on Monday too! My thoughtful, sweet and handsome purrince sent me this beautiful card.

And my purrince and I got to spend time together at an amusement park as part of Blogville’s Spring Break. You can see us and lots of others having fun over on Madi’s blog.

You all had a lot of good guesses on what today’s A-Z Blogging Challenge item would be, but no one guessed an Uncle Sam Hat. Any guesses for V?
