Thankful Thursday


Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

I am thankful for the sweet Thank You card The Great One’s class made for me for reading Emmy’s book to them and donating it to the classroom. They all signed the inside.

Also, thankful my vegan banana chocolate chip cookies came out good. My hubby’s niece is coming for a visit tomorrow and she is vegan, so I wanted to make something to offer.


We are also joining Angel Sammy’s Poetry Day.  And here is the photo prompt provided:

As you can see, I have a full tummy. 

That warthog sure was yummy. 
Now I will relax up high.
as I wait for dessert to walk by. 
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.
