Thankful Thursday


We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Joanie is thankful that she got her Nanny for Christmas.

Now she can have more time for napping. She is also thankful for getting to have a play date with The Great One ( I am thankful for that too).

I am thankful that my mom. my niece, The Great One, Typhoid Mary and I got to take our annual trip to IHOP for the holiday pancakes.

Sorry I skipped the poem this week.

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. Here are my fill-ins.
    1. I had hoped to finish my book in 2021 but didn’t.
    2. A goal for 2022 is to finish writing my book.
    3. I’ll still be sick when 2021 ends.
    4. I hope 2022 brings Health, Happiness, Kindness, Love & Safety to Everyone.

    1. Thank you for your answers. I am sorry you are still sick. I wish the same for you in 2022. XO

  2. Nick and I will order take out from ihop some time. He loves that place. Glad you had time with your loved ones. Enjoying my catch up time. LIke those questions. I better get busy. heeheehee…I am always late. HUGS to you

  3. My human hasn’t been to iHop in years! Mainly because the last time they went, they started putting the calorie count on all the dishes, and it made her sad and not want to eat anything.

  4. I am glad Joanie got her nanny so she can have more “me time”.

  5. Joanie! GOOD for you. I know you needed a Nanny! Now your wish came true. Mom said that iHop has too many calories for her…but the stuff is good.

  6. Those pancakes look delicious! I am so happy you were able to do your holiday tradition of pancakes at IHOP. The Nanny will free up a lot of time for Joanie so she can enjoy time with The Great One.

  7. Wonderful thankful things. Pancakes at IHOP. I so remember my son loved going out for pancakes.

    I’m already for the Friendly Fill-ins.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. xoxo ♥

  8. I haven’t sat down in a restaurant for pancakes (or anything else) since 2019! I have to make my own but it is worth the trouble. That must be an ‘old’ Nanny. i can’t believe they would still make them.
