Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) provided us with a “cool” inspiration photo for this week’s poetry challenge. It is from an ice hotel in Sweden.

I added Lisbeth to the photo and cropped it down a bit.

Frozen Toesies

Though, this looks warm and inviting;
I am chilled to the bone.
I definately would never want this to be my home.
I’m not certain I’ll even stay the night
If I can get an earlier flight
Back home where it’s warm and cozy,
And I don’t have to worry about freezing my toesies.

If you’d like to try writing some poetry, check out Two Spoiled Cats (by clicking on the poetry badge) for next week’s inspiration photo. Please read Angel Sammy’s poem when you visit. He sends it to Teddy each week from the Rainbow Bridge, and he is one of our very favorite poets.


Thankful Thursday

In addition to poetry, Thursday is when we like to share the things for which we are thankful.

Dad Tom and I are thankful for all the blog comments and condolences with reference to the loss of our nephew’s wife. We appreciate everyones’ kindness.

I am thankful I was the First Right Guesser on Two Spoiled Cats’ Tuesday Teaser. I hadn’t accomplished that feat in ages and ages. As a result, I won this terrific badge.


I also am thankful for some really nice weather with low humidity that has allowed me to get lots of work done in the yard.

Kitties Blue and I are thankful for all our friends and followers, especially those of you who check out our Looking Back posts.
