Thankful Thimble Thursday with a Birthday

Today is the perfect day for Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Why is today a perfect day for giving thanks? Because it's the day the furbabies' grandma celebrates her birthday!

Thimble is inviting all of you to her wonderful grandma's birthday party!

Grab yourself some cake, a gift box to sit in, a gift bag to crawl in, and anything else you see and like!


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

1. I just can't bring myself to _________.

2. I have a hankering for _________.

3. _________ changed my life.

4. At this stage of my life, I _________.

We'll see you tomorrow, friends!


P.S. We'll be sharing our weekly poem for Angel Sammy's Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge this weekend. This week's photo prompt gave me a fun little idea for my poem and illustration, but I got a bit distracted planning my mom's mini birthday party that I didn't finish executing my poetic plans. So, we'll be getting poetic this weekend instead.

Tip of the Day

Today's pet parenting tip relates to the dreaded vacuum cleaner, but at the same time, it doesn't. Especially if you have a furbaby who is fearful of the vacuum, you can do them a favor by using other methods to clean carpets and rugs, when possible. For example, did you know that a squeegee can be used to remove pet hair from carpets and rugs? That being said, there are also actual rug brushes on the market, which can similarly be used to remove hair from carpets and rugs. So, especially if you have a furbaby who is fearful when you vacuum, you can use these alternative, far quieter such methods when possible. Though the vacuum cleaner may not always be avoidable, when it is, such methods as the aforementioned ones can help remove hair from carpets and rugs while causing far less fearful reactions from your kitties or pups.
