Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: It Was Sun While It Lasted

thankful thursday blog hop brian 02282019

Hello everyone, it’s time once again for our Thankful Thursday Blog and I’m ready to go. It’s hard to believe it’s the last day of February already! Anyways, as you know, each and every Thursday we post about things we are thankful for, and while sometimes things seem difficult with all the sadness in the Blogosphere, we look for the thankfuls. We really do enjoy reading about all of the things you are thankful for too and we get excited when we see new blogger pals hopping in to join us!

Here in the South we’ve had 13 days in a row with rain and cloudy, yucky weather. Then, the sun came out for 3 days in a row. Oh my, the sunpuddles were glorious and we all enjoyed basking in the warmth of the sun. Then it wasn’t. The rains and the clouds are back and there is even supposed to be some Brrrrr Humbug temperatures here next week.

Oh well, I’m super thankful we had some wonderful sunshine for a while, I know it will return and I’ll be thankful when that happens too. As I mentioned in my intro, there’s been a lot of sadness in our Blogosphere lately and I’m very thankful that we can be there to support others in their time of sadness as they’ve been there for us in the past.

What are you thankful for today? Tell us 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!

Gee, clouds and rain, but warm weather? I will take that over the snow and cold we have been getting for the last month and a half. Plus the weather guessers say it will be really cold over the weekend.

It’s been alternating cloudy then sunny then warm then cold. Oh, well, i want the not so hot to last a bit longer.

Right now i am thankful that the mechanic will let us use the loaner vehicle tomorrow so we can get the Land Yacht fixed again.

We hear you, Brian. It’s been pretty gray and yucky here most of the time, but when the sun comes out, we’re even MORE grateful for it. 🙂

You must live near us because that’s the exact same weather we had! So many flowers are already blooming and next week is going to be possibly in the teens!

We are thankful for the sunshine too. Our yard is so wet now we can’t walk in it. But we are thankful we can go walk in town, if Miss Tammy feels like walking. And we are thankful for Miss Tammy because Mommy can’t walk two dogs at one time, so we couldn’t walk in town without her.

We’ve had either sunshine or snow, but it makes us happy. Hope March brings you more sun puddles.

Oh no, cloudy and rainy AGAIN? Sorry Brian, it’s that way here too. We’re with you on the thankfuls today, so many folks have been so supportive this month with all the sad news. What a great community we are a part of, I am so thankful for all of them.

We’ve had “brrrr” weather all winter, minus gazillion temps, more snow than we ever wanted, freezing rain, ice, etc. It’s been a lousy winter, weather-wise! However, we have sunshine (!!!) today, which is GLORIOUS, in spite of the cold. We hope your sunshine will return soon, to stay longer than 3 days. 🙂

It’s rained here a lot too. I live in a desert so it’s all good, but I do miss the sun when it hides for days on end.

Yes there has been a lot of sadness of late, but we’re hoping it’s smooth sailing for a bit.

Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. My best to your peeps. ♥

WE also have grey skies today after many days of sun and we do miss the beautiful sunpuddles!

You know Brian, yours and my weather is exactly the same. We had 3 days too…and yesterday, we went, well, mom, her DIL and the baby, to the Museum of Appalachia. All the peacocks, lambs, everyone was out in the fields, even a buffalo and we happily walked everywhere in the suns. Now they and we will all have rain starting this cloudy day. We too will have that bah humbug weather starting Monday with possible snow.

Normally I am a look for the happy sort of person, however it seems lately that has become so hard for me. I know it will take time to get through the things I am facing but I am thankful for my blogland friends and the upbeat love they bring to my life. Thank you to all Dad and Moms sweet kitties. You are all adorable and you bring smiles to my face, thankful for those smiles.

We are also thankful for sunny weather in the winter, Brian! (Not so much in the hot summer, though.)

I was looking out the window for sun in the exact same way. We had ONE day of sun this week and now it’s snowing again this morning. We’re plummeting into the deep freeze over the weekend with a low on Sunday in the negative range….with more snow. Of course, in a few months, we’ll be complaining how hot it is outside! 🙂 So, maybe we should be thankful for what we have?!

Memories of Eric and Flynn

We have had over a week of glorious spring like weather which I am thankful for as we went away for 3 days. Now we are home again the rain has returned!

We too have had a lot of wetness here. Of course, we love the snow form. Our snow is about gone now, but maybe more this weekend. And yes, the bitter temps are back and will even get worse. But Mom says we have to be thankful that we are almost at March and then Spring. Huh??? We want to keep our snow:)

Hi Bwian! It’s me Dori *wavy paws* I’m thankful because we had a beautiful week with sun puddles on the floor. We live in Elvis’ backyard so our weather has been pretty soggy here. However spring is coming, so … Yay!

Yes, we certainly know how that is! We are thankful for the sunshine we have today, and that it was just warm enough to get out for a walk!

We think that the first two months of this year has gone by so quickly. Hopefully, the sun will be shining more for you soon. Those rainy days can be very lazy times. Thanks for the share. We are thankful for that tomorrow is Friday. Have a great day.

We know what you mean about the glorious sun puddles the last few days! The only problem is the pollen now! Stay warm this week when the weather turns colder. Mom Paula said to tell your humans that she is going to be in Greenville next week.

Well, Brian, our overnight low for this coming Sunday/Monday night is supposed to be 9°F, and the lows for the next two nights are supposed to be 6° and 7°. Would you like to trade our weather for yours? 🙂

When the sun comes out after resting for a few days her rays are always warmer.

Brian, this is a super adorable photo of you. The weather is crazy pants everywhere, and it is starting to wear on us as well. We are supposed to have a couple of nights in the teens this coming week. At least progress is being made on our house addition, which is our thankful..

I sure hope that you get the sun back very soon. The sun puddles are the best. I’m so sorry about the sadness…

Your South almost sounds like our SoCal south. We’ve had lots of rain and clouds, too. It’ll be back again this weekend. But I think we may have more sun breaks than you. Which we’re thankful for as well!

I’d be so thankful to see the sun when the temps are above freezing. If it’s sunny, it means the wind chill is single digits. We’re expecting 4-9 inches of snow between now and Monday.
