Thankful and Poetic Thursday

36

Double Post Day!

(First of all sorry for the confusion yesterday – Mom ACCIDENTALLY hit “publish” instead of SCHEDULE for this post and you got a notice a day early!   We quickly deleted it – but here it is again on the RIGHT DAY!!!!!!)  

First part of my blog today is for THANKFUL THURSDAY.    Today I’m VERY thankful – Why?   Many things but today I’ll tell you just one reason – Spring is popping here finally.   As recently as one week ago we had a frost/freeze warning but for the last several days we’ve had WARM temps and the little leaf buds on the trees are bursting open in leaps and bounds!    Our pink dogwoods have pink blossoms and the little dwarf Japanese maple has leafed out – the maple was my FAVORITE spot to stay cool in the summer and we think Teddy has figured that out now too!

Now for PART TWO of this post and that’s my Thoroughly Poetic Thursday post……………….this week we are up to the letter “R” in the alphabet so the poem needs to be about an “R” thing!

“R”

“Rabbit”

By Sammy Kimmell, April 13, 2017

It’s a well known Easter habit

Watching out for the Easter rabbit!

He comes when everyone is sleeping

On bunny feet he does all his creeping

He hides eggs around the house

He’s QUIET as a mouse!

Kids will carry their baskets around

To see how many eggs can be found!

Sometimes the bunny leaves candy –

The basket will sure come in handy –

For carrying around all your treasures….

Such fun is impossible to measure.

Easter Rabbit makes everyone SMILE

Makes older folks feel like a child.

The Easter holiday would not be complete

Without those visiting RABBIT feet!!

Next Thursday we will celebrate the letter “S” as we make our way to the end of the alphabet for the second time here on the blog!    I hope you will join us – it’s not too late to join in today – you can write a poem and put it in my comments OR if you have a poem done on your blog – leave us your link so we can HOP over and read it!    Try some poetry – you’ll be glad you did!!

Love, Angel Sammy

Weekend Wrap-Up

95

Whew!   Did Easter exhaust you as much as it did me?  Well, we were pretty busy around here and while it was all FUN and the Bunny brought treats, my parents were on the go and I didn’t get a lot of time with them.  I’m glad it’s Monday.  Time for some catching up.

First I have a few pix from my Mom’s trip to visit her sister – my Auntie Carol – last week and I wanted to show you my Cousins……Shih Tsus Mollye, and Toby.   Mollye only has one eye because when my Aunt rescued her, she’d been a puppy mill Mommy all her life and had no vet care…..she had glaucoma very bad in one eye and also never had dental care so Aunt Carol had her work cut out for her but Mollye is one great big sweetie love bug.   She has problems ambulating because she was kept in a cage all her life just having puppies so her little legs had quite an adjustment to make when she could run and walk like a normal pup!   Anyway, she’s doing just fine………and her big brother Toby takes good care of his sister!  They are great friends and very close.

Then of course we had Easter!  This is me and my Easter basket the Bunny very kindly brought to me.  I know many of you wanted to know how my Dad did with the big Easter Bunny egg hunt………well, he found ALL the eggs thanks to my help and a bit of help from Mom.   Mom and I hid the eggs in the basement before Dad got up and I helped Mom pick some GREAT spots……it took my Dad about 45 minutes to find 11 eggs!!   HAHAHA

So I hope your Easter was a goodie?  If you don’t celebrate Easter I hope you had a fabulous weekend anyway……………………don’t you DARE forget that tomorrow is Tuesday Teaser!!   You don’t want to forget that now do you?   The other thing about tomorrow is that I am going to be a guest on my good buddy and Cousin (haha) Bacon the pig’s blog tomorrow.  You know his regular column “Dear Bacon” where he gives advice to animals who have problems of all kinds???  Well, I’m doing a guest spot for him tomorrow.  Five distraught animals have sent letters to Cousin Bacon and I’m stepping in to answer their questions or solve their problems for them tomorrow!  Make sure and visit Bacon’s blog Tuesday to see how I’ve tried to help these five poor lost souls find their way………………… 😉

Guess that’s about it for me for a Monday………………..see you tomorrow???  The Teaser will be waiting for you………..and you know you don’t want to miss that!!

HUGS,

Sammy
