Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! As many of you noticed, I have a new theme.  Yesterday my blog disappeared and after some troubleshooting I discovered it was the theme I was using. Unfortunately, when you change themes, you lose the sidebar badges, header, etc.  I am not sure why there is an Amazon ad as I am not signed up for that so I am working to remove it.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop .

I am thankful I got the blog running again without having to pay GoDaddy like I did the last two times. Emmy is thankful that she found her purple mouse.

I am such a meanie. When I cleaned last week, I didn’t put her purple mouse back. I put it on the cat tree. And sure enough, within two days, it was back on her chair.  Apparently she keeps inventory.

We are also joining  Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo prompt provided by Teddy’s Mom.


Little siblings can be a pain
enough to drive you insane.
I may give you a push or a shove,
but, you will always have my love.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
1. My favorite outdoor activity is _____________________.
2. One positive aspect of social isolation is __________________________.
3. It’s fortunate that _________.
4. I have _________ memorized.
One more thing- next Wednesday The A-Z Blogging Challenge begins.  My theme is books about cats. I did that once before so I will list the books from 2016 and a different one for this year for each letter.  Today is the last day to sign up, if you are interested, click here.


  1. Very cute photo and I’m glad you found a way back Ellen! I use an old theme so I hope I won’t disappear. I don’t want to have to learn a new one . . .

  2. Are you SURE about that Amazon ad. Because looking at the link, there is an affiliate code in there with your blog name! So you may want to keep it.

  3. I have been having some trouble with a few word press blogs, can’t post…or maybe I can on a different browser. Hope now I can post here again.
    Emmy is a smart kitty!!

    PS, Now there is no button for getting a reply notice…

  4. Yes I noticed your new theme right away. I know you’ll get it looking the way you want, but I love your new look and your comment system is really nice.

    I’m all ready for the Friendly Fill-ins.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches to all the kitties and a hug to you. ♥

  5. OOPS – a disappearing blog – sounds like a mystery that needs to be solved but then you figured out a way around the disappearance by starting over! Sorry you have to rework everything though. You’ll have fun “rebuilding”. I’m glad that your toy hoarder has her purple mouse AND all her other favorites back in her possession now. We also love your poem – we have read some cute ones for the photo theme this week !!!!

    Hugs, Teddy and Mom too

  6. This new version loads much, MUCH quicker than before!
    Sorry you’ve lost some stuff; hope you figure it out.
    Emmy, we are all glad that you’ve got your purple mouse back.

  7. Puter issues are the worst! My site has been having issues the last two weeks, keeping my fingers crossed! I’m so glad you are back up and running, yay!

  8. Yes I did notice your absence yesterday morning. The header is very pretty….I hope you are able to get things back like you want them soon.
    As always, I love your 4 liner
    Hugs cecilia

  9. Cute poem!!

    I see this new theme doesn’t have a button to make you get notifications of replies that you make. Can you add that in again, please?!

    And on Firefox, I have been having trouble with a lot of the WordPress blogs, also on safari…now I am in Opera, Hope it works here…

  10. Wonderful that you got the blog sorted without having to fork over more money.

    Are we sure Emmy’s not part magpie? No matter, she’s cute and smart.

    Little brothers are a pain, i had two, and yes i love them anyway. Excellent poem!

  11. I love the colors of your new blog theme. It reminds me of autumn, and that makes me very happy. And we bet you keep inventory, Emmy! Around here, it’s Tonks who keeps inventory of her toys. If she finds one of her favorites missing, she’ll search until it’s found. And your poem is so sweet! Purrs and well wishes!

  12. Very cute photo and poem for the prompt. Yes, siblings can be a challenge! I’m glad you figured out your issues with the blog. That can be so frustrating when there’s no clear reason why something has happened. I hope you and yours are staying well and are safe. xoxo

    1. Thank you 🙂 No, I don’t understand coding except for the linky on Friday, I can add that, but it is just copy and paste 🙂

    1. Thank you 🙂 Sorry your comments are not showing up, it should as it didn’t need to be approved. XO
