Thankful Thursday

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

  I am thankful that Gremmie is not my responsibility. No wonder why Joanie can’t get paid to train gremlins, she doesn’t know how.

Millie is thankful to his friend , Sawyer for sharing this PTU Pooper badge that Teddy’s mom made for him.

Yes, Millie has popped in the PTU every time he has ever been in it. Last week, he went to the vet for a rabies shot and blood work. All is good, except his thyroid levels so he needs to take a larger dose of meds. Jinx went to the vet too and all was good with him despite being 15.

We are also joining Sammy’s Poetry Day, here is my haiku based on this photo:

Monkey behind lens
click, click with darn flashy box
reminds me of mom.


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.

1.Before you ________________, you need to ________________.

2. After ______________________________.

3. Winter                          .

4. Spring                           .


Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Ten Things of Thankful and Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hops.

Here is our art made on ribbet:

And here are my thankfuls-

  1. We lost power Friday from the storm, but it was back in 2 hours.
  2. Our 20-year-old generator failed and we were afraid is could cause a fire, I am thankful that our electrician who installed it and is now retired came over to disconnect it for now.
  3. We got all rain from this storm instead of snow or sleet.
  4. Breakfast with my mom, niece and the great one.
  5. I am thankful that the great one has so many people that love her, I wish all kids we so lucky.
  6. The teller at the bank I go to retired a year ago and I didn’t get to say goodbye. I am thankful that my mom and I ran into her( not literally) in the grocery store parking lot and had a nice conversation with her.
  7. I am almost done all the crocheting for the A-Z challenge.
  8. New episodes of my favorite shows on tv this week.
  9. Thankful my hubby qualifies for a senior discount at the vet ( that sounds funny, you know what I mean though :)).
  10. My sweet hubby.

We are also joining the Appreciate the Moments blog hop hosted by Everyday Dog Mom and Dog Mom Days. The word this month is lucky and I am lucky to have all these loving cats.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Thank you to everyone who gave me some ideas for the A-Z challenge, they are greatly appreciated. I will try to find a pattern for kitty underwear-thank you Summer 🙂

We are joining McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks, Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays, Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? and Curious as a Cathy’s Mewsic Moves Me blog hops. We love to hop!

 We just finished Lessons from Stanley the Cat by Jennifer Freed. Psychotherapist, Jennifer Freed writes about lessons she learned from her beloved cat, Stanley. This book was published in 2010 so you can get a cheap used copy on Amazon. My Spark is one of his lessons, “Do not let any bad comments or derision bother you. Consider negativity as passing gas.” Very wise advice.

This week’s mewsic theme is your favorite love songs so here are mine:

I have never seen a Twilight movie, but I love this song.


Sunday Selfies

Before we get started, we want to offer our condolences to Brian and his family on the loss of his sister, Kit. She was a proud Crotchety Cougar and will be missed by all.

Joanie was cuddling on the bed with her Gremmie so look what I got back.

Mom has a question for everyone. She is going to participate in the A-Z Blogging Challenge again. Last year, she crocheted something new everyday to go with the letters and then had a giveaway at the end of the month with 2 winners that got all the cat toys and hats. She wants to do that again this year with all different items, but can’t think of ideas for the following letters , I will put in parentheses what she made last year: N(nip tea bag), Q ( Queen’s crown), U ( Uncle Sam’s hat) and W(whale). Any ideas are greatly appreciated and please remember that mom is not that great at crochet so she can’t make unicorns or anything like that.

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.

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.
