Thankful Thursday


We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I am thankful for my pretty Penny and Peonies. Don’t worry, I moved them to the dining room right after I took the photo. That is the one no cat zone in the house because I have plants in there.

We are joining the poetry day named after Teddy’s angel brother Sammy ‘s Poetry Day. Here is the photo prompt provided.

I live with the man with the yellow hat *

He chose me instead of a cat. 
Right now, I am really thirsty
and this beats licking dew off a tree.
* I think most of you know of Curious George, but if not that is where the man in the yellow hat comes from.

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. Did you know _______________?

2. My plans for June include _____________ and __________________.
3. When I need to cheer myself up, I _________.
4. I could teach an entire course on _________.


  1. Those peonies are lovely, and so are you, Penny.

  2. What a CUTE poem for today’s poetry challenge! My Mom loves peonies – she doesn’t have any of her own but our next door neighbor always brings her a bouquet when hers bloom.

    Hugs, Teddy

  3. Oh Curious George. I even liked seeing it on Public TV along with the kids. Monkeys are not a fave of mine, even cartoon ones, but George…what’s not to like? 🙂

  4. Penny is beautiful and I know you take great care of your kitties.

    Love the poem and I’m all ready for the Friendly Fill-ins.

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

  5. Oooooooooooooo! Very pretty flowers! You are pretty too Penny!
    As a cat, I would not likely be thirsty enough to get my furs wet!!!
    Purrs, Julie

    1. Thank you. 🙂 I don’t think any of my kitties would either. XO

  6. How sweet! 😀 Your are lovely, Penny, and so is your mom.


    Sorry I’ve been absent. I’ve been enjoying other activities and unintentionally neglecting my lovely blogging friends. Be well!

  7. Penny and peonies, pretty, pretty! I LOVED Curious George as a kid, lovely poem!
