Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.I am thankful that I got a new sewing machine for Christmas so I can make catnip mats.

Emmy is posing with the Dr. Seuss catnip mat I just made. We are having a giveaway -the winner will receive the catnip mat, 3 fish toys and the hat that Emmy is modeling (sorry, Emmy is not included). We can only offer this to US residents because of the cost of shipping-sorry.To enter, just leave a comment on this post by Saturday 9PM  (EST). Winner will be announced on Sunday. Hopefully the prize will arrive to the winner in time for Dr. Seuss Day on March 2nd.

Here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo prompt:

You reap what you sow,
if it is grass, you’ll have to mow.
Wait until after the last freeze
to plant your peas.
And if you want your greens,
plant spinach and beans.
now the most important we must address
it to be sure to plant seeds of kindness.
