Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Mom has been getting up on the wrong side of the bed all week. Sammy stretches out on the side and she can’t get past him so she has to get out on Dad’s side when he gets up.

I am joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am most thankful that I got to spend time with Grammie on Monday and I saw her on Wednesday too. Grammie gave me treats 3 times on Monday, everyone else only got them twice. And she gave me some drinks from the bathroom sink. I love my Grammie so very much!

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, I thought I would be an over-achiever like Madi and use all 4 of the H word choices.

I don’t like to be sappy
but my heart is happy
I have a great home
we even have a pet gnome

I just have one complaint
I never claimed to be a saint
Mom likes to crochet hats
and puts them on us cats
I am going to lobby
for mom to get a new hobby

And here are the fill-ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

2. Rules __________________.

  1. Tee Hee!!! Love your poem for Poetic Thursdays – but I think your Mom’s hobby is wonderful and she makes the BESTEST things for everybody including YOU ALL. She’s very talented………I’m glad you got to see your Grammie AND got a lot of treats from her too………….HAPPY THURSDAY!

    Love, Teddy

    1. Thank you Teddy, I guess I like her toys, just not the hats. XO and love to you!

    1. I wish she would move in with us, but she wants her own bathroom and we can’t afford to build her one. 🙁

  2. Today i am thankful for your poem, although i’m glad your mom knits hats for you, i think you are lovely in them.

  3. Do not lobby for mom to get a new hobby
    it makes my heart happy to see you all wear the cappys
    So nice to hear that you have a nice home
    I am jealous of the pet gnome
    and just for fun … I have a gnome his name is Gerome

  4. Those really are cute hats. We are glad you got to spend time with your Grammie. But that gnome-guy… He looks like a total pushover! Go for it.

    1. Thank you. I think mom would be mad if I pushed the gnome over, he is breakable.

  5. This here human had to get out of bed on the wrong side this morning, too! Well, more like she had to get out at the foot of the bed because cats were blocking all the sides. And we love your poem, Phoebe! How clever you were to use all four H words. And how cool that you have a pet gnome! Does he bite? He looks quite friendly, so we hope not. Purrs!

    1. That is funny that you had to get out of bed wrong too 🙂 Glad you liked my poem. So far, the gnome doesn’t bite 🙂

  6. You are so lucky to have a Grammie who loves you and gives you treats. You have good reason to live her

  7. I love your poems. I love them a lot and look forward to them each week.

    I hope your mom gets up on the right side of the bed soon.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. My best to your peeps. ☺

    1. Thank you 🙂 Sammy bites her if she tried to move him so I think she has to keep using Dads side. :)My Peeps send their best.

  8. Oh we so hope that the Mom does NOT give up the crocheting. She makes the most wonderful toys and hats too. That poem is just the best. Have a great day.

  9. Phoebe, that was an A++ poem. We used three of the words and thought we were over-achievers. Now we know that we were just slackers. We think you pet gnome is very cute. We have a big cement gnome in our garden. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

    1. Thank you, 3 words is impressive too 🙂 This was for the garden, but mom felt bad for it so he stays on the porch, she is a little crazy.
