Thankful Thursday

It is important to be thankful each and everyday, and sharing those Thankfuls on Thursday is a great reminder to always look for the good in every situation. Like I always say, “Believe in Silver Linings.”

This week Audrey is sharing the Kitties Blue thankful.

Dad Tom put together the new tent I gave the kitties for Christmas to replace the one Cooper Murphy won years ago at Cat Scouts.  Most of the gang have tried it out. Audrey is a huge fan. Raleigh squeezed in with her at one point and forced her out. Wish I had gotten of photo of them in it together. As kittens, I transferred them to Cooper’s tent when I cleaned out their enclosure. You can see Raleigh and Audrey as adorable little kittens in the old tent on the post, “Spark of Compassion.”

I am thankful our temperature has warmed up after being dreadfully cold day after day. That and the rain we are having is melting what is left of our snow. Yippee! Unfortunately that does mean the sun disappeared, but I always like the warmer weather!

Kitties Blue and I are thankful for all our followers, supporters and friends.

Periwinkle & Stinky are thankful I answered their questions on Tuesday; though, they didn’t love all the answers. If you missed their Adventure this week, click here.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thursday is also poetry day. Teddy and Angel Sammy from Two Spoiled Cats provided the most hysterical, inspiration photo for this week’s poetry challenge. I had loads of fun writing this one.

Bummer of a Summer

Summer vacation is supposed to be fun—
the ocean, the beach and the glorious sun!
But when snorkeling, a jellyfish stung my face,
and I crashed my jet ski when I tried to race.
My son kicked me in the groin with his swim fin,
and the sun has fried my winter-white, delicate skin.
So, now I lounge here sipping this rum punch
long before it’s even time for some lunch.
Vacation has definitely turned out to be a bummer!
I think I will have a staycation next summer.
