Throwback Thursday

I have no new photos to share that match up with our thankfuls for the week. So, here is a gratuitous, cute photo of Astrid from 2017. You may all squee now!


Thankful Thursday

At the top of our thankful list this week, is Dad Tom’s and my thankful for appointments to get our third dose of the Pfizer vaccine on September 7. If you have not gotten your vaccines yet, I encourage you to do so. The latest news is that if more Americans don’t step up and get vaccinated, the virus will be around until spring of 2022.

Sawyer has been home for five weeks, and he had his first gran mal seizure yesterday. He’s been doing a much better job of eating, which means he is getting the proper amount of his medications. We pray seizures continue to remain far apart. The better job of eating also is helping him regain the weight he lost while on his adventure.

All the Kitties Blue and I are thankful fo your continued support and friendship.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on the Thankful Thursday badge to be transported over to Brian’s Home.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Each Thursday I try to enter the poetry challenge hosted my our pals at Two Spoiled Cats, Teddy and Angel Sammy. The inspiration photo they provided for this week has my mouth watering and tastebuds tingling. I sure wish we had someplace local to get real Italian gelato.



Sweet Treat

Italian gelato is a decadent treat.
Every flavor is a delight to eat.
I’d love to have a cone with each one
And time to sit and savor until I’m done.
This makes me wish I was in Italy.
They have yummy gelato in every city.
Siena is my very favorite; I’d go tomorrow,
But this virus makes travel for me a big “no.”
I guess I’ll need to eat more ice cream.
And visit Italy in my nightly dreams.
