Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

I am a few days late for this special day, but better late than never. Deborah Barnes founded Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day in 2015, in tribute to her beloved Mr. Jazz who went to The Rainbow Bridge in 2013. It is a day to honor all our furbabies that are no longer with us. They truly do leave pawprints on our hearts.  We are joining the hop, click here.

Since I started blogging in 2014, six of my kitties have left us.

I also want to remember my beloved KaChoo who was with us from 1994-2010

and Barney who left us in 2013.

We are also joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade. The Great One made this masterpiece when she was visiting the other day.

And it took me all of July and August, but I did it! All 100 snowflakes are complete.

Now I plan to make more of the ones I like the best and add something sparkly to them.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 172

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate. Don’t forget to add your link to the hop so everyone can visit you.

1. My favorite Peanuts character is ______________________.

 
2. I knew I was no longer a child when ____________________.
 

3. I was shocked when I learned that _________.

4. I always feel frustrated when I try to _________.
My Answers:
1. My favorite Peanuts character is Lucy. My angel Lucy would have pulled the football from Charlie Brown too.
2. I knew I was no longer a child when  -I will let you know when that happens. I still feel like a child because my hubby handles everything for me just like my parents did. I am blessed, but I am also in for a big shock someday.
3. I was shocked when I learned that  I was talking to my aunt and not Barney Rubble ( Flintstones) on the phone when I was a kid. For years I thought I was talking to Barney. I wanted him to leave Betty and come live with me- I guess I was a bit of a hussy.
4. I always feel frustrated when I try to fit into clothes in my closet. I have so many clothes, yet I have outgrown so many. Or worse, I bought them with the hope of someday fitting into them, but that hasn’t happened.

  Last week, The Great One and I dressed Joanie as a giraffe, but it didn’t work out very well.
I am praying for all of you in the path of the hurricane. Stay safe.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! I am ashamed to admit that I forgot yesterday was Rainbow Bridge Memorial Day. I will be doing a post for it on Saturday. I think it is good to remember those that are no longer with us that left pawprints on our hearts.

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Joanie is thankful that The Great One came to visit her again.

We also celebrated her cat, Nixon’s 13th birthday ( at her house). Nixon* lived with us for the first 5 years of his life.

My niece got him freshman year in college, but couldn’t keep him in the dorm so he lived here. And she lived here too and commuted to school after her first year of college. *Nixon was named after the Red Sox player, Trot Nixon, not the former president 🙂

And here is my poem based on Sammy’s Poetry Day. 

Having a tiger mom is not fun
all I want to do is go outside and run
but I have to practice 5 hours a day
even after school on a Friday
Seeing this little girl at the big piano made me feel sorry for her lost childhood.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. My favorite Peanuts character is ______________________.
 
2. I knew I was no longer a child when ____________________.
 
3. I was shocked when I learned that _________.
4. I always feel frustrated when I try to _________.

 

Wordless Wednesday

Prancie says. “nobody better burn down my she shed.” *

She even has a chandelier in it.

* She is making fun of the State Farm commercial.

Prancie does have a she shed. Years ago, I had a custom bunk bed made for the cats that has crib sized mattresses. The bottom one has a baby gate on the front of it to keep Prancie in it at night. She has a fluffy blankie, litter box, water, food and toys. We do it for her protection so she won’t climb and get injured at night. Se even has bells on the gate that she rings when she wants to get out. So much for wordless- sorry.

Penny’s Tips Volume 47

Hi everyone! Did you miss me last week?

  My tip today is more of a superstition. Did you know that if you give someone a gift of a purse or wallet that you are supposed to put money in it for good luck? I recommend you put a penny in because you already spent money on a gift so no need to give a larger amount.

Mom bought The Great One a unicorn purse last week when they went (pre)school clothes shopping, Mom put a penny in it and boy did The Great One get mad at her- she didn’t want a penny in her new purse, she had other things to put in it. She ended up giving the penny to her mom for doing a good workout 🙂

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.


Like my laser eyes?

Awww….Monday

Hi everyone! I am only joining one hop today,  Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays.

I have had a lot of helpers with my snowflakes. I am on #93. So close to 100, but the ones at the end are the toughest and take longer. Prancie is helping today. Trouble is banned from helping because she chews through my thread.

I am reading more Happiness books, but Emmy is not happy about it.

1. I am a stickler for ___________________.
 
2. By the end of August, I plan to ____________________.
 


3. _________ is my favorite thing about myself.
4. These days, my biggest priority is _________.
My answers:
1. I am a stickler for thank-you cards/notes.I always send them and I get annoyed when others don’t for things like weddings and showers.
2. By the end of August, I plan to still have Noel with me. I am really trying to be positive, but her appetite comes and goes now which scares me.
3. My optimism is my favorite thing about myself.
4. These days, my biggest priority is Noel.
Noel enjoyed The Great One’s visit. I told her to be very gentle and she was. She kept bringing her toys. And she even wanted a photo with her which is very unusual. She wanted her to have the crown to be the queen.

Thankful Thursday

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

Joanie is happy that The Great One came over to play with her. I am happy too because she didn’t want to come over for several months. I go to her house to see her often, but she is like me in preferring to be home. Well, she finally decided she needed to come see Joanie.

We played costume shop and all these stuffies bought their Halloween costumes 🙂

Millie made a big mistake when he decided to be friendly. He got dressed as Elsa.

I was a bad girl and didn’t do my homework so I have no poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. 

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
