Thankful Thursday


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

I am thankful I live where it snows. Every winter, I do my annual snow walk. Kind of like my version of the Polar Bear Club.

Also thankful Temptations are nutritionally complete because that is what Joanie continues to eat. One day, she refused until I got to flavor #12. Thankfully, the past two days, she was interested in choice #1.


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


Stop right there, Jack!
I saw you stop at the litterbox for a snack.
If you think you are getting a kiss
you are definitely quite amiss.
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. The 2020 pandemic taught me ____________________________.
2. A game I enjoy playing is _____________________.
3. My perfect _________ would include _________.

4. If I could only listen to one song for the rest of my life, I would choose _________.


  1. Oh I’m so glad Joanie continues to enjoy the Temptations! Yikes, that must be a chilly walk! Ahahaha I got a good laugh from your poetry, it was purrfect for the picture! XO

  2. I am glad Joanie is eating the Temptations, but wish she would eat other food too.
    You make me feel cold barefoot in the snow. Love your poem. It made me laugh!

    1. Thank you. 🙂 I wish she would too, but as long as she gets enough calories I am pleased. XO

  3. You are one brave lady with the naked toesies in the snow! I bet you came inside afterward and put on BIG FUZZY SOCKS! Also hope your Valentine’s Day was fabulous. We LOVE YOUR POEM!

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy

  4. First off get some socks on those feet girl. I got goosebumps looking at your picture. Precious didn’t have any idea there were 12 flavors of Temptation treats or she’d be all over me when I go to the store. Glad to hear that Joanie will eat these for you even if you have to open every bag first.

    1. I did get them on quickly. There are even more than 12 flavors. I recently found Trout ones that I had not seen before. XO

  5. Your poem made me laugh and walking in the snow barefoot! Yikes! I am glad Joanie is eating the Temptations.

    1. Yes, the vet told me they are nutritionally complete. And they have so many flavors.

  6. Oona: “A shot to the face! Shazam!!!”
    Chaplin: “What has Shazam got to do with—”
    Oona: “SHAZAM!!! Also, Oona wanted to thank you for the birthday package! It arrived a day early! Oona MAY share the toys with the other cats if she is feeling generous.”
    Charlee: “I was already playing with one of the felt knots in the cat room.”

  7. Brrr ~ you are brave with your feet in the snow ~ glad Joanie likes her treats ~ quite the selections ~ fun poem too ~ hugs,

    Wishing you good health, laughter and love in your days,

  9. Yikes, cold toes! Keep eating those treats sweet Joanie. That was a fun poem too! Thanks for joining Angel Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  10. Adorable prompt and poem! You are brave to go out barefoot in the snow! Mudpie likes Temptations but for some reason they tend to upset her stomach, so she typically gets Party Mix.

  11. I felt a chill just seeing your feet in the snow. lol I’m grateful to live in a temperate zone, myself. 🙂 And it’s a relief that Joanie is eating. I know these situations are tough. ~hugs~ The poem made me giggle, so thank you. Blessings, my dear.

  12. We’re glad she eats at least something, Ellen💗 Your poem made us MOL…it’s super funny *whispurrs* and so disgusting when you think about it…MOL…Extra clean Pawkisses for all of you🐾😽💞
