Thankful Thursday

Kitties Blue asked to be first to share their thankfuls with you today. Here is Astrid with her thankful.

Tuesday was my fourth wedding anniversary. Sampson (Sampy) from Kitty Cat Chronicles and I were married at the Blog Paws Conference in 2016. Here’s a photo from back then as well as a photo of the card Sampy sent me.




I also sent Sampy a card, but that would be his choice to share it at Kitty Cat Chronicles if he wishes.

Purrs & paw-pats, Astrid

Our Adventurous tabbies, Periwinkle and Stinky are next with a thankful for this week.

Mom Janet got this cool certificate from the Cat Writers’ Association. We told you a couple of week’s ago about the award, but the certificate just recently arrived.


This may have my mom’s name on it, but Periwinkle and I know that it is really ours.

If you missed our last adventure, it is part one of a two-part post about our trip to the Mill Mountain Zoo in Roanoke, Virginia. That’s where I live. Anyhoo, here’s the link to “A Trip to the Zoo: Part I.”

Purrs and paw-pats, Periwinkle & Stinky

Personally, I am thankful for receiving a Three Year badge from Peloton for working out every week for the past 156 weeks.

Dad Tom and I are thankful we both are virus free as are our friends and families. We are grateful, as well, that Virginia is not one of the states experiencing a surge in cases. Dad Tom and I remain vigilant and continue to follow our state’s and the CDC guidelines. We pray you all are doing the same.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by our friend, Brian. 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 enter your link.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

I must apologize to Two Spoiled Cats’, Angel Sammy and Teddy, for not having a poem today. The inspiration photo this week is amazing, but my brain just refuses to go into poetry mode. If it is more cooperative today, I will post a poem tomorrow along with the Friendly Fill-Ins.

See y’all tomorrow.

Happy Anniversary sweetie girl. That was a nice bunch of thankfuls and being heathy during this time is a wonderful thing. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

We are so happy your family is virus-free as is ours…..we are doing what’s SAFE and if everyone was doing that – we wouldn’t be having a resurgence which is happening in other states. Thankfully Virginia isn’t one of those states but we are praying for everyone to do the right things to help control the virus. Gosh – we have enough problems in the world without THAT right?? Right! Anyway, happy Anniversary Astrid. It’s nice to reach milestones isn’t it!!!

Hugs, Teddy

Periwinkle and Stinky that definitely looks like an award for you guys.
