2. I think the most romantic movie (and book) is The Notebook. And it doesn’t even have Nicolas Cage in it.
3.Recently, I had an odd experience when my friend’s daughter who has psychic abilities told me that my Dad wanted me to watch my health. I feel fine so I am not sure what he meant.
4. I believe that love is all around , you just need to keep your heart open.

Ten Things of Thankful

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful. Our art today is a card wishing the kitties’ Dad a Happy Birthday!

 

And now for our thankfuls:

  1. My wonderful husband whose birthday is today.
  2. My hubby that makes me tea at night and even warms the cup with hot water so it will stay extra hot.
  3. My hubby who plows ( very handy this week with 10 inches of snow).
  4. My hubby who makes sure the generator is working before a storm ( and was wise enough to get one to begin with).
  5. My hubby that the cats all flock too, I get annoyed that they all take turns on his lap. Joanie is my only lap cat with a brief visit from Brody or Emmy once in a while.
  6. My hubby who can fix a leaky faucet without calling a plumber.
  7. My hubby who can hang a framed picture or anything and make it perfectly level.
  8. My hubby who is a great cook.
  9. My hubby who is glad I am so close with my mom.
  10. My hubby who loves me even though I am a little crazy with all my quirks and superstitions.

I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful husband to share my life with.

It has been chilly lately so Joanie has on her sweater
and Millie does too. I put one on Emmy and she went into the closet, made some noises then came over to me to show me she got it off. 🙂

 

Santa Was Good to Us

Hi everyone! We hope you all had a nice Christmas.

Sammy thinks Santa left him cookies

Grammie got me lots of treats

Emmy got a brown mouse in her stocking

Mommy got Daddy a telescope ( this is him assembling it)

 

Millie opened this big container of treats from Grammie

KaTwo got these toys from Grammie

And Joanie got her Gremlin, she named him Gremmie

We think maybe Grammie is the real Santa.

Mom even did something stupid for me to write about. She was making gingerbread truffles so she melted white chocolate in the microwave. She thought she set it for a minute and wandered off, when she got back in the room, the microwave was still on and she realized she hit an extra zero so it was set for 10 minutes. Luckily, it had only been 3 minutes, enough to ruin the chocolate, but she was able to save the bowl.

 

Sparks

Hi everyone! We are joining McGuffy’s Reader’s Sparks and Comedy Plus’ Awww…. Mondays Blog Hops.

For my Sparks this month, I have been writing about nice things to do for those that might be forgotten at the holidays. This week, I will remind you to remember those closest to you. Sometimes, they are not given all the love they deserve. I know when we are having a party, I get tense with preparations and my poor hubby has to bear the brunt of my moods. This year, I am going to try very hard not to be grumpy toward him.

Millie really loves his Dad.

One more thing for my Spark, a fun Christmas song, one of my favorites.

 

Penny’s Tips- Volume 5

Hi everyone! I finally get to give another one of my tips. My tip this week is to use a penny to solve a dispute. For example, I want this box and so does Millie. I will flip you for it Millie.

Heads I win, tails you lose.

Works every time. I always win.

Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends!

Don’t forget to comment on Sunday’s post for a chance to win Prancie’s Grumpy Cat giveaway!

Millie wrote: ” Dear Santa, I want a catnip carrot of my own. Love, Millie ”

Have you written your letter to Santa yet?

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We are very thankful that Prancie is almost back to her normal self, she is still a little weak, but much better. And we are very thankful for all the purrs and prayers. In addition to the vestibular issue and ear infection, she also has hyperthyroidism so is now taking meds for that. She still needs a blood pressure check when we go for a recheck in 3-4 weeks.Her other blood work was good and her urine was too so that is all good news.

Prancie did write her poem today, but she is going to let Joanie deal with this post.

I iz Prancie’s nurse. When mom or dad can’t watch Prancie she is in this cage and I takes care of her. She sleeps in this too between my folks. They are afraid she will get hurt if she tries to jump down from somewhere.

Millie played a Halloween trick on mom, he hid a pumpkin. She heard a thump when they were watching tv and figured he knocked it down, but she couldn’t find it until the next morning. He had rolled it across the kitchen and under a chair that was in the corner.

We are joining Sammy’s Poetry Day featuring the letter U. Here is Prancie’s poem.

Unique
Just like people, us kitties are all unique
some of us are quiet and some like to speak.
Some of us eat too much, not me though
most of us enjoy looking out the window.
One thing about us that is the same
we love our human that gave us a name.

We are late with our Spark this week too. On Google, I found a photo of a caterpillar and a butterfly with the following quote: “Don’t Lose Hope.(You never know what tomorrow will bring).” Here are my photos that my hubby took this summer of a monarch emerging from a chrysalis.

And here are the fill-ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.


1. My favorite part of November is ________________.

2. Every November, I ________________________.

3. For me, peace                                         .

4. So far, my upcoming holiday plans                                        .
