Thankful Thursday

I am thankful that I had my stitches out last Friday and now am in my big, old, orthopedic boot. I can take it off at night to sleep, which means I am finally getting some rest.



Me in my boot with nurse Sawyer keeping my good foot warm.


With the virus spiraling out of control again, Dad Tom and I are extremely grateful to remain well.

Sawyer and I are joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by Brian. If you would like to participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful and then click on Brian’s badge to go to his blog and link up.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Kitties Blue and I like sharing our thankfuls on Thursday, but we especially like writing a poem for Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry challenge. Here is the inspiration photo the Two Spoiled Cats provided this week followed by my poem.





Racing with a friend can be fun:
Waiting on the line for the starter’s gun,
To cranking as fast as we can,
To maybe collect a medal at the end.
We don’t need legs to excel,
Just determination to do well.
And even should we come in last,
We know we will have had a blast!

If you’ve never written a poem, I suggest you check out Teddy and Angel Sammy’s blog (click on the badge below) on Thursdays for the photo for the following week’s poem. Then check out Shadow Poetry where you can find information and instructions for writing every type of poem.

And don’t forget to check out Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy each week from the Rainbow Bridge, and he is a masterful poet.
