We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day.We are thankful for all our friends who read our blog.

Here is our poem to go with this photo-

Sometimes you can hardly stay afloat
wishing you were on a boat.
Then you open your eyes
and see that you can improvise.
After a little rest
a lifeboat may come from the west.

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.

  “Watcha doing Phoebe ? ”

( Phoebe) Getting ready to wear the Queen Esther costume for Purim. You have to be special to wear it.

(Joanie) I iz special.

(Phoebe) Yes, you are special. You can wear it.

    Happy Purim to all our Jewish friends. If you want to learn about Purim, there is a great website called My Jewish Learning that has 9 facts about Purim. One fact is that Queen Esther was a vegetarian.

Did you see what I did there? I tricked Joanie into wearing the outfit. I am having a St. Patrick’s Day giveaway. Mom is going to make a catnip mat with this fabric. Just comment on today’s post to be entered in the giveaway. I will announce the winner on Tuesday.

I got to see my Grammie on Saturday. I love her so very much!

And finally at 10:22 PM, The Critters in the Cottage got the correct answer. They were all baby toys- that is why my Mom and I were so confused. The dog did enjoy the pacifier though. I will be sending some crocheted toys to the winner- Congratulations!
