In the Spirit of Thanksgiving

In the Spirit of Thanksgiving

You've got to check out this little video about what people are grateful for. It is fun to watch and even more fun to think of things that you're grateful for. When you start thinking about good times and about good things in your life, you can't help but smile!

I'm so grateful for my family. I have loyal, hard-working, generous, funny and loving parents. I have two fabulous sisters that I consider my very best friends, and I have the sweetest, most tender brother anyone could ever ask for. I also have an amazing extended family who give me strength and love and happiness always. I have wonderful friends that warm my heart just by thinking about them. I'm so grateful for the examples that have been set for me and for the patience that surrounds me. I'm so grateful for the knowledge and resources that this place I live in has so readily available to me! I'm so blessed to have a home and food and transportation. And greatest of all, I am so blessed to know that our Heavenly Father loves us and still cares about what goes on in our lives.

I'm sorry if I went on a long time with that, but I hope it put a smile on someone's face and that thinking of the things you're grateful for will put a smile on yours.

I hate goodbyes. I miss my sister and her family already! Oh. I am so sad.

Random thoughts and pics

Contented kitty.

Whiskers helping me with my emails.
A favorite hang out for kitties.

Here's Hyrum playing in part of a really cool playground in Idaho. It's called Storybook playground I think. It was a lot of fun. I got several pics of the kiddos there.

Ha ha. Whiskers has the most Starry eyes! They're awesome, but I can almost NEVER get a picture of him without his pupils going funny colors.

This is an awesome tree in my yard. Pardon the artistic rendition... I think it's a really cool tree. There was a mistake made in the property lines between my house and the neighbor's so next spring he's probably going to take that tree down as it is on his lot actually. I'm so sad! I'll miss the apricots and the awesome artistic tree. :) See below to see what it looks like before I messed with it in Photoshop.

This is what I see every morning. Those dang gym shoes. They always have to remind me that I did promise to go to the gym in the mornings. I've been doing pretty good. We'll see how long I can keep that up.

Thank you kitties for dispatching a spider... Now could you possibly throw it's carcass in the trash can???

Here's a shot I took of the moon with my awesome camera. My dad's camera has MANY more mega pixels and so it is more detailed... but mine turned out not so bad either. :)

Kitty looking over his shoulder. Yes, I photoshopped out the junk on my bedroom floor! It was distracting! ;) lol.

AND finally, I am saving a breast again this year. Or at least helping. If you eat this kind of yogurt and want to give me your pink lids, I will mail them in. The company gives 10 cents per lid to fund breast cancer research.

So... in photos, that's kinda what I've been up to lately.

Just in time

So I can't find my SD card reader right now so I can't post the pictures I wanted to share. I'll find it in a little while.

Me and the kitties are doing good. Thankfully, bucket-head days are done. Penny is feeling much better. We even got a bit of a fence up between the upstairs and downstairs so the dog can't harass them and they can sit in the window and look outside.

Today I planted a bunch of bulbs in my front garden box. I put out Daffodils, Tulips and crocuses. I can hardly wait for the spring to get here so I can see how they turn out! I love spring flowers.

I wanted to post a little note of gratitude for our troops and our veterans. I appreciate the sacrifice that they make for this country and for the good people in other countries. My heart goes out to them today. Thank you troops.

I have been trying to get the flu shot. Being un-insured and unemployed really sucks when it comes to medical stuff. I can't find a regular flu shot under 50$!!! I haven't gotten one and I am hoping I don't get sick.

I get to go see a new specialist next week about my carpal tunnel. I think they're going to try cortizone shots. Goody.

Anyway, I locked the cats out of this room because they kept jumping on the computer and messing it up and now they are outside the door crying, so I better be off! Thanks everyone for checking in on my blog! I love you guys!

Poor Bucket Head!

So these are my babies. Pardon them if they look sleepy. I woke them up to take these pictures.
Penny is the calico. She's pretty sure that she is made out of paper. In other words, she's very delicate and dainty... quite the princess.

Whiskers is the black and white cat. He's an incredibly curious cat. He's always checking everything out. He can't stand to be in the same room with me without knowing exactly what I'm doing and usually getting in the way of it.

They went to get fixed last week. It seems to be going worse for poor little penny than for Whiskers. She was licking her incision too much and ended up popping a stitch. So today we had to go back to the vet and get her a bucket to go around her head. Poor baby. She hates it! It is so embarrassing! And itchy.

I have to leave it on her until Sunday.

Whiskers doesn't trust it. lol. She jumped up to sit by him and he totally poofed up and hissed.
Anyway... thats the excitement today from me.

Dressing Up

So here's my costume this year. I decided to be a pirate. I think I need kids. It's a lot of fun to dress kids up and take them out trick or treating. At least I think so. Haven't done it in a while. :)

What are your thoughts? Did anyone else dress up themselves too???

Does anyone Blog anymore?

You see a lot of ads about making money using a blog, but I don't have close friends who are blogging anymore. That is why I am just g...
