Thankful Thursday

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

  I am thankful that I only had to pose for one photo with this crocheted Q-tip for The A-Z Challenge.Also thankful that Mom didn’t try to stick it in my ear. We are impressed that some of you guessed that she was making a Q-tip. Good job Caren and Cody and Laila and Minchie

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day. We had to write a photo based on this photo:

Some need to jump from a plane to feel alive
or go on a deep sea dive.
Some climb Mount Everest
or have to be cleverest.
All Mom needs is to hear us purr
and to pet our soft fur.

We also want to give our sympathies to Cat Scout Foxy’s Dad. If you haven’t visited their blog yet, click here.

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

1. New ____________ are _________________.

2. I love to ______________ on the ________________.

3. When I was a child, I loved to play                          .

4. One                    , I                          .



  1. Aha! I did not even think of Q-Tip, MOL!
    I knew a kitty who had that for his second name, cause he liked to steal them to play with:)

    Nothing like a good kitty to cuddle…and hear the rumbling start…that means all is well.

  2. I think a crocheted q-tip is VERY original! I’m very glad that your kitty’s purring keeps you happy and you don’t need to take up skydiving!

  3. Q-Tips are so handy, i think it’s a great idea to crochet one.

    Adventure can be great, there’s something more to be said for the loving comforts of home and family.

    My condolences to all who loved Cat Scout Foxy.

  4. Your Q-tip is cute, as is the poem. I never would have thought of crocheting a Q-tip. 🙂

    Aww I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Foxy. It is always hard to tell our loved ones, human and pets, good-bye.

    Have a blessed week.

  5. A Q-tip! Why didn’t WE think of that! I love it too – it’s super cute like all the other toys you’ve made Miss Ellen. We also think your poem this week is PERFECT. Who needs to fly when all the fun is right here on the ground surrounded by kitties?!?!?!

    Happy Thursday!
    Love, Teddy

    1. Thank you. Yes, kitties are all anyone needs. XO and love to you and your mom.

  6. A Q-tip! How clever! Prancie, you are the purrfect model for it. And your poem speaks the truth, that’s for sure. Purring kitties are all we need around here, too!

    Our purrs and prayers are with beautiful Foxy’s dad.

  7. That poem is so darn true. Nothing better than a kitty purring. A Q tip is just perfect. You all have a super day.

  8. You and the people who guessed correctly for Q are very clever! I had to snicker when I read: “We had to write a photo based on this photo.” Hope you don’t mind me pointing out the typo, it just made me giggle. Heaven only knows how many typos I scatter across the world every day. ~rolls eyes at self~ Sorry about the loss of Foxy. 🙁 Be well, my dears!

    1. Thank you 🙂 I am going to fire my mom. she is supposed to let me know if I have any typos. That is funny.

  9. I love your creativity. I hope to get caught up today…at least sorta’. I read every day, but time has just been at a minimum. Chloe Jo is not doing as well as we had hoped, but we are not giving up! More on the newbie later. We love you guys very much. Hugs.
