Thankful Thursday

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.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. If you would like to participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful. Then click on his badge to go to his blog and enter your link.


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.

It’s an unusual time of year, this year…lots of our traditions are out the window, because they involve people.
But some of us have our four-pawed loves to snuggle, and all will be well.

That Christmas tree bed looks pawsome!

Those are really good thankfuls, especially the very little snow! Good poem too. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

Lots of wonderful thankfuls. It is nice this year to not rush everything, you can enjoy doing things instead of doing them fast to get to the next item on the to-do list. That is a cute bed. Excellent haiku too. XO

What a cool bed tree. You look like a princess in it Lisbeth.

We liked your haiku….short and to the point.

Coop….sending many paw pats to your handsome face.

I’m glad you’re ahead of schedule. I’m thinking Cooper Murphy helped with that. Tell him I love him.

I’m thankful that I quit lurking here and finally started to comment on your posts.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches to all the kitties and a big hug to you. ♥

Sweet photo! That bed is adorable. Mom is sending out the last of the packages today!!

Haiku seems to be popular today.

There is so much to be thankful for. Christmastime can be stressful and it feels good when you don’t save everything until the last minute.

Perhaps that is one small (good?) thing is that we’ve been given a little extra time at home to do things that otherwise might never get done …
Lisbeth looks so adorable, that is one cute bed to curl up in while waiting for Santy!
Oh, and your storm came north to visit us for a few hours but it was awesomely beautiful while here, fluffy big flakes gently falling but not causing a bit of bother!

Oh Lisbeth looks so pretty in the Christmas Tree bed! Glad she’s enjoying it. I know it’s wonderful being able to be READY for Christmas early. We were too. Not many cards to send – all shopping online with no busy shops to visit………and yesterday some snow to make it FEEL more festive (could have done without the ice though!). We are feeling hopeful for a better new year too. We love your haiku – it’s EXACTLY the “flavor” the photo imparts.

Hugs, Teddy and Mom

My human and I know people who are getting hammered by the storm, so you really are lucky!
