Thankful Thursday

Kitties Blue and I share the first thankful. Our friend, Brian, who is the host of Thankful Thursday got good news from the vet. The results of the biopsy he had last week showed no sign of lymphoma or cancer cells. He does have IBD, but that is treatable. This is absolutely the best thankful of the week!

The other thankfuls for the week are mine.

First, Angel Charles’ mom, Inge, sent me this beautiful plaque for the side yard where Mau is buried. I told her that I refer to it as Mau and Allie’s garden and wanted to get a sign for it. I am overwhelmed by her kindness and thoughtfulness. Friends are great!




My second thankful is that my hair has finally grown out enough to put it in a ponytail, and I only need three or four hair clips to keep the short pieces in place. (This may sound silly to the men, but when it gets hot, I cannot stand my hair on my neck, which is one reason I kept it long.) 

And finally, our new dishwasher arrived and has been installed. We thought it was going to be out of stock until spring.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop. If you would like to participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on Brian’s badge to go to his blog and link up.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Besides being thankful on Thursdays, I try to participate in Angel Sammy and Teddy’s poetry challenge. They provide an inspiration photo, and those of us who participate write a poem based on the photo.

Here’s this week’s photo.



I’ll have to admit my poem for this week is rather pathetic. I had some marbles when I was growing up, just because I thought they were pretty, but I never really understood the point of the game.


Not a Kid Anymore

I never learned to play marbles.
Now I can’t get on the ground.
Old age sucks.

If you’d like to write some poetry, check out Two Spoiled Cats (by clicking on the poetry badge) on Thursdays. You’ll find the inspiration photo for the following week. While visiting, please read Angel Sammy’s poem. I can guarantee it will be lots better than mine.


Thanks for stopping by. We hope to see you again tomorrow.
