Thankful Thimble Thursday and the Letter G

First, I apologize again if some of our posts this week are going up late. I'm still fighting some battles with my WiFi at home, so much so that I sometimes have to wait until I get to work in the morning to publish our posts using the WiFi there. Technology and I are currently at odds, but that's nothing new. Anyway, now we'll finally get to today's post.

As always, we're happy to participate in Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Thimble yet again has some gratitude to share, and this week she's grateful for her adorable toesies.

Thimble and this here mom of hers are also very thankful for our favorite store Target, and for when our goods from there actually arrive in one piece despite the box looking like it got drop-kicked by an ogre. That there box Thimble is sitting on was falling apart when it arrived, yet it was actually one of the better looking ones we've received lately.

What else are we thankful for? The fun April A to Z Challenge!

With our spooky springtime theme of halfway to Halloween, or Halfoween, what did we do with the letter G? We brought in some ghosts, of course!

I couldn't convince poor angel Rosie that these are friendly ghosts, so she's just going to hang out back there in that bush, well away from the weird specters.


Now, let's share the fill-ins statements for tomorrow's Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, shall we? My co-host Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two, and I came up with the second two.

1. I don't like to _________, but I have to.

2. I _________ like a _________.

3. I secretly _________.

4. _________ wears me out.

We'll see you tomorrow, friends!


P.S. As we mentioned last week, while we participate in the A to Z Challenge during the month of April, our usual poems for Angel Sammy's Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge will be posted on Sundays. 

Trivia of the Day

Did you know that Stephen King's novel Pet Sematary was based on actual events in his life? Prior to writing that novel, King, his wife, and their children had moved to a new home on a busy road. Unfortunately, many local pets lost their lives on that busy road, and so a pet cemetery had been set up in a nearby wooded area. The cat of King's daughter sadly passed away after being hit on that road, and they buried the cat in the nearby pet cemetery. Though it's a very sad course of events, this time in Stephen King's life was nevertheless one of the main inspirations for his novel Pet Sematary.
