A Thankful Thimble Thursday: Little Miss Sunshine

It sure doesn't feel like autumn around here. But, although we are looking forward to some truly autumnal days, they say to always look on the bright side of life. So, we're enjoying the warm sunshine these November days are giving us. Thimble especially loves the rays, as it gives her a chance to model in them.



Is anybuddy else soaking up some warm November sun? We sure hope so!

We're entering this sunshiney post into Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. There's not much better to be thankful for than a beautiful day.

Our Tip of the Day:
Given the abnormally warm temperatures these days, you may or may not still see the occasional mosquito. So, how about a little tip on keeping those mosquitoes away from your yard and furbabies? There are certain plants that are believed to naturally deter those little blood suckers, many of which are easy enough to grow in your very own yard. What's even better is that there are plenty such plants that are perfectly safe for your furbabies to be around. One plant believed to deter mosquitoes is catnip. That's pretty great, considering your kitty will love you for it! Other plants that are said to deter mosquitoes include basil, rosemary, and peppermint. So, if you have trouble with an unwelcome mosquito population in the warm months, try planting some of these in your garden. If nothing else, your furbaby will think you for the nip, and you can enjoy the rest.

  7. Thimble is a beautiful girl. No sun today, but we enjoy it when we have it. Planting catnip is a win/win- no mosquitoes and lots of kitty fun.
