Thankful Thursday

We are overflowing with thankfuls this week.

Stinky asked to start. He wants to let those who joined Periwinkle and him for their last adventure just how grateful he is. His alter ego, Sawyer, has been having a seizure every six days for the past several weeks, so he is so grateful to have these distractions.

I have the most thankfuls. Last Thursday I completed my 900th Peloton ride and got a shout-out from instructor, Emma Lovewell. I have already completed 10 rides toward my 1000.

I was the sole First Commentor on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats and I was one of the (though not first) Right Guessers. I got these two cool badges.







The Cat on My Head earned two top blog recognitions. One is from CatPet Club. They named us one of the Ten Best Blogs by Enthusiastic Cat Moms as part of their 50 Cat Lover Blogs We ❤️.

The Cat on My Head also was named a Top Cat Blog at WildernessCat.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by our friend Brian. We think recalling for what we are thankful each week is important. It helps us remember how lucky and blessed we are. If you agree, post on your blog for what you are thankful. Then click on Brian’s badge and link up.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

We are back with another poem today as part of Teddy and Angel Sammy’s weekly poetry challenge. Here’s today’s inspiration photo and my poem.



I recognize so many of these items, the Beatles & Elvis albums, saddle shoes, Mickey Mouse ears, a lava lamp and so much more. If I was a compulsive saver, these items could be mine.

Memories of Things Past 

At first glance this looks like chaos
Possibly the attic of a hoarder.
But look carefully. Each object…
A precious memento arranged
With purpose in a specific group
Mostly by stages of this person’s life.
By examining each we can deduce
Who this stranger is: someone who is
Nostalgic with a wistful affection for
The happy memories of the past.
