Thankful Thursday

I am super thankful the Presidential election has concluded, even if we won’t know the results for a while. I am even more thankful I won’t have to listen to any more political advertisements. Having this contentious election combined with the pandemic has been almost more than I can tolerate.

I am thankful as well to be less than 48 hours from getting this humongous dressing off my foot and getting my stitches removed. My hope is for something smaller that will allow me to get into an orthopedic boot.

Of course, I remain thankful that Dad Tom and I remain virus free.

Kitties Blue and I are participating in the Thankful Thursday blog hop at Brian’s Home. If you’d like to join us, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on Brian’s badge to go to his blog and enter your link.


Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Time for our weekly poem inspired by a photo provided by Teddy and Angel Sammy from Two Spoiled Cats.




Autumn color was spectacular this year; though, I saw little of it due to my surgery. And after several recent windy days, most of the tress are now bare. So I found this photo particularly appealing.


Autumn Grandeur


The golden iridescence of fall
In its peace and beauty
beckons me to stop and reflect
before winter comes to call.

When autumn colors turn to grey
and brown announcing winter’s arrival,
I count the days until spring
When earth’s renewal begins again.

I almost fainted when I had stitches removed after my bunion surgery; made my sister go with me to hold my hand! That part was scarier than the surgeries themselves, to me.
Hope your stitches out goes much better than mine!

So glad you might be able to hobble around in one of those big shoes instead of that bulky cumbersome dressing.

And yes no matter the final outcome, we can all find other things to listen to now…like ads to sell things we don’t need, LOL!

Your poem is exquisite!

I am thankful for all the friends of blogville surrounding us now at our time of grief…and thankful too, that hubby came through surgery just fine and now we face the long road of recovery and rehab…so far so good!

Beautiful poem! We’re hoping you get a smaller dressing so you can get around better.

We had very little colour change this year and all the storms have taken most of the leaves. I hope you will be able to wear an orthopaedic boot. It does make life easier and is more comfortable.

What a beautiful poem for what usually is a most beautiful season for us all. We did have beautiful and brilliant leaves but the high winds ripped them from their limbs and yesterday the landscapers blew them down into the woods. Now we’re thinking that we just can’t wait for SPRING and to see the leaves again! Thanks for pawticipating in poetry day with us.

Love, Teddy
