Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: The Wisdom of Humans Keeps Mom Home

thankful thursday blog hop brian 01182018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!There’s always something to be thankful for so welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We love sharing things we’re thankful for and we really love hearing about your thankfuls too.

This photo was actually taken yesterday (or today, Wednesday, if you are reading this Wednesday night) and I’m patiently waiting on the arm of the couch for the Mom to come sit with me. I just just know her leg needs some fluffing up. Wait, Wednesday and the Mom is home? Yep, smack dab in the middle of the week. Now that’s really something to be thankful for any old day!

Today though, I’m thankful for the wisdom of the humans that made it possible for the Mom to be safe at home. I know, wisdom of humans is a bit of an oxymoron. However, today it’s true. You see, we had snow and the roads were really going to be bad. Seriously, if there is a rumor of snow the roads get bad here in the South. Anyways, the Mom didn’t have to go out on a commute because the wise humans closed her place of work today. That means we didn’t have to worry about the Mom and it means bonus lap time for me. I’m seriously thankful for both of those.  We’re also thankful for the Department of Transportation workers that are out n’ about clearing the roads so others can be safe in their travels.

In case you were wondering, I didn’t have to wait long at all. The Mom joined me on the couch and her leg got some serious fluffing, just like I promised her.

What are you thankful for today? Tell me in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Yeah! A snow day! It would be so treacherous on the roads today with the snow and ice. Smart businesses would close. Nobody is out and about anyhow.

Your mom being home is a very good reason to celebrate.

MOL We’re glad your mommy got to stay home and you got extra lap time. We’re always fankful fur lap time with mommy and we’re fankful ya’ll are pawrt of our lives. Big hugs

We’re thankful your Mom got to stay home, too, Brian. Safe and sound on the couch sounds like a great place to be, especially with you fluffing her leg!

Stay safe and warm, pals!

Daddy got to come home and work yesterday. We wish the people had been wise enough to tell him he didn’t have to drive to work. He got all the way there only to discover he couldn’t get across the bridge because of ICE so the ship yard was closed. He still had to work but he could do it from home thanks to the Internet. We think the same thing may happen today. Youngest boy did have to work, but thankfully he works close by and he got off before dark. Eldest boy works with Daddy so he didn’t… Read more »

We had a shade over 5″, the most snow in one day in over 7 years. Some winters we don’t even get 5″ the entire season.

Believe it or not, some of that peep wisdom must have spread up here, ’cause schools are all closed, today, and everythin’. Of course, MY peeps are not so wise. Peep #1 is goin’ out this afternoon. Says she needs to get in some supplies. PURRS.

It’s been such a weird Winter, Brian, but it’s good that your momma is home instead of out there fighting the traffic and weather. Here in Michigan, they’ve only closed schools when the temperatures were bitterly cold, ’cause we are all used to driving in snow! I worry about the ferals when it’s snowy and cold, but thankfully the two of them have been showing up for meals and seem to be okay.

That was probably a very wise decision from Mom’s workplace. The kids here had a day off from school due to the bitter cold. Some of the systems announced that the night before, but the one for the grands’ waited until the last minute that morning. Dumb decision, with parents needing to make arrangements for daytime care. Always best to err on the side of caution:)

Having your mom home mid-week for some extra “fluffing” and loving time is definitely something for which to be thankful. We’re thankful that it actually got warm enough to go out on the catio today; though, the wind was blowing around all the snow from yesterday. Stay toasty.

A bonus day with the Mom is awesome! Most importantly, it was so great she stayed safe. Even here in the Northeast, people should just stay home sometimes, but we have to be tough, so no one does. While our road crews are great, sometimes the snow or ice is impossible to fight and there are always accidents.
