With more than a week remaining until Christmas, I am thankful to have gifts in the mail. They are all scheduled to arrive well before Christmas. Yippee! Cooper Murphy is thankful I finished his Cat Scouts cards and mailed them ages ago. All the decorating is finished. I now can finish writing cards for Kitties Blue, making some goodies for a few neighbors, wrapping Dad Tom’s gifts and writing our Christmas newsletter. With this pandemic I have been able to accomplish more and complete holiday projects earlier than any other time in my life. That feels so good, and it means I actually will have the opportunity to relax and enjoy the holiday with Dad Tom and the kitties.
Lisbeth is thankful for the Christmas Tree bed, a gift to the kitties last year from our friend, Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats). I was super surprised to find her in it on Tuesday after she finished toasting her nose on the radiator (see yesterday’s post). If you’d like to see her in the bed last Christmas as well, click here.
All of us are thankful yesterday’s winter storm, only brought us 1/4 inch of ice and a sprinkling of snow. We pray that those who are receiving lots of wind and snow from this storm remain safe.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
As Kitties Blue and I do most Thursdays, we are joining Thoroughly Poetic Thursday hosted by Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats). They provide an inspiration photo, and participants write a poem based on the photo. The photo is below and the haiku I wrote for this week.
In quiet repose
Reflecting on life’s meaning
At peace with nature
If you’d like to find next week’s inspiration photo, click on the link to Two Spoiled Cats in the second paragraph under the Thankful Thursday heading. And while visiting, please check out Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy each week from the Rainbow Bridge, and it is always a winner.
See you tomorrow for Feline Friday and Friendly Fill-Ins.
