1. I know spring is almost here when ___________________.

2. I find ____________________confusing.

3. I have a strong opinion on _________.
4. _________ is the strangest thing I have ever eaten.
My answers:
1. I know spring is almost here when the pussy willows open up. Not quite there yet, but here are some from last year.
2. I find monetizing my blog confusing. I have yet to do it. I don’t understand stats, algorithms, etc.
3. I have a strong opinion on anything to do with cats. I am against declawing, I believe all cats should be spayed/neutered as young as possible. And I think anyone who abuses them should be jailed.
4.Queen Anne’s Lace is the strangest thing I have ever eaten. A few years ago, I decided to research foraging local plants and discovered they are edible. Now every year I batter some up and fry them. They are tasty, they have a hint of lemon in their flavor.

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.
