Thankful Thursday

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am thankful that The Great One enjoyed her first day of preschool. She is almost four and will go 3 days a week. I am also thankful I got to go over and take her first day photo. I took my niece’s ( her mother) first day photo from preschool -college and I hope to do the same for her and her little sister.

Here’s a Flashback Photo  of my Angel from September 2014 on Meow Like a Pirate Day. We are looking forward to that on the 19th and will be having a giveaway.

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

The man in the van thought he would give her a ride
maybe she was a runaway bride.
Then he realized it was a bluff
no one could carry all that stuff.
If he stopped and said get in
out would jump the rest of her kin.
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. I joined ____________ in _______________.

 

2. I wish I’d asked _______________ about _________________.

3. _________ had the biggest impact on who I am today.
4. _________ is the most beautiful place I have ever been.

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.

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.

I am praying for all of you in the path of the hurricane. Stay safe.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 156

Hi everyone! Thank you all for the purrs and prayers for Sammy.

Things did not go as planned. Sammy did not get his dental because the vet heard a “gallop” in his heartbeat. She didn’t hear it when he got his blood work 2 weeks ago. He will need an ultrasound of his heart before he can go under anesthesia. I am glad the vet chose to be cautious.

I still have no answers on the nose. She numbed it and tried to get a fluid sample, but there was no fluid. She couldn’t take a sample unless he was under anesthesia so that had to wait. She took an x-ray, but there “expert” needs to review it.

1. ______________ was a very good year.
 
2. There is nothing quite like _______________.
3. If I had a talk show, I would want to interview _________.
4. There is nothing I wouldn’t do for _________.
My answers:
1. 1992 was a very good year. That was the year we got married. I was thinking of other years when good things happened, but unfortunately bad ones did too in the same year.
2. There is nothing quite like sharing a bed with cats. It is wonderful in some ways like falling asleep to the sound of purrs, but then there is the scratches they accidentally give me and the pillow hogging. I can’t sleep without at least one though.
3. If I had a talk show, I would want to interview Nicolas Cage.
4. There is nothing I wouldn’t do for my immediate family and my cats.

Star Wars Giveaway

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade. We are having a Star Wars themed giveaway for May the Fourth Be With You Day!

I used Face In The Hole to make Sammy into Yoda.

And now for our giveaway-

We have a Star Wars themed catnip mat, 2 catnip mice dressed as Princess Leia and Darth Vader, a plastic Darth Vader head filled with our home grown nip and a Star Wars keychain. ( Sorry, Joanie is not included).To enter just leave a comment on this post by Monday at 9 PM ( EST). Winner will be announced Tuesday. Sorry I can only afford to send this in the US because the keychain is quite heavy.

And I have to show this old photo of Angel Lucy as Princess Leia. And yes, I ate the cookies. She peed on me that night too- the only time she ever did so I guess she was mad about this photo.

We will join Sabi Saturday tomorrow. Be sure to stop by to see our Kentucky Derby hats for Sunday Selfies.

PS: Don’t tell my Trekkie hubby we are having a Star Wars giveaway.

3. I’m proud to say I have a dozen cats even though most are shocked when I say that.
