Thankful Thursday

Sawyer is starting us out today with our thankfuls for this first week of 2022. He is thankful for five weeks and two days between seizures. He had one Tuesday, so the count begins again. He’s also thankful that his little sister Kizmet likes him and is kind to him. The photo below was taken after she had finished giving him a bath.

Today is Cuddle Up Day. Looks as if Sawyer and Kizmet were getting a head start.

I am thankful for:

  • a new year—not that I am confidant it will be better than the last two, at least in terms of COVID.
  • completing by 1,800th Peloton ride yesterday.
  • having an appointment today with my orthopedist to get some help with my knee pain.
  • Kizmet entertaining us everyday with her antics.


Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by everyone’s good friend, Brian. If you’d like to participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful and then click on his badge.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

The inspiration photo Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) selected for today’s poetry challenge is perfect, as many of us have snow on the ground now.



The Wee Skier

If I tried to ski I’d fall on my butt,
But this tike is as steady as a truck.
Even if he should fall in the snow,
It’d be okay—he doesn’t have far to go.
He’ll be a pro in no time at all—
Skiing steep slopes with nary a fall.
When he’s my age he’ll still be a great athlete—
Won’t have to worry about landing on his seat!
