Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Green Benching In the Summertime

thankful thursday blog hop brian 07092020

Howdy there everyone, thanks for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. You all know that I am always thankful to each of you for joining us! Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today I’m really thankful for our Green Bench, it’s another favorite spot of mine and in the summertime, the sunpuddles sure make it nice and warm.  I know, the summer time is hot, but even when it is hot us kitties still love our sunpuddles, at least for a little while.  Our Mom always makes sure that there is a nice clean towel down over the original bench pad so we can have an extra comfy.

We’ve had the green bench for a while.  It’s an older piece of furniture that is one of those “they don’t make them like they used to” things.  The green bench used to belong to our Grandma, our Mama’s Mom.  I use the green bench lots, Dolly uses it some and so does Simon.  Silly Seal hardly benches at all, she doesn’t know what she’s missing.

So, 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!

You have such a lovely green bench. Despite our hot days, I still try to get a little sunpuddle in the morning. We’re joining the hop with thankfulness that Sprinkles hamster appears to be healthy.

I love that green bench. ideal place to curl up with a good book in the company of your adorable kittys.

I love how relaxed they look. And so thoughtful of their Mom to ensure they have a comfy towel to boot.

Our favorite spot, the green bench. Well used, well remembered!

Memories of Eric and Flynn

Your green bench is a lovely place to relax.
Even on the hottest days Flynn would go and lie in the greenhouse!

At first I wasn’t going to let Big Boy see your picture because it looked like you had to pillows and I didn’t want him to think that he’s going to get to pillows but then when I read your words you said it’s a towel and he does get towels and he does get blankets so I’ll let him see your beautiful picture

Brian, all of our furniture pieces are hand-me-downs, but we purchased the house with all contents. Which makes things very comfy for the cats.

That is a very nice bench – we can see why you enjoy a sunpuddle nap there. We don’t like the heat much either, but a nice sunpuddle nap next to the a/c vent works for us.

Sun puddles are always something in which to be thankful. Bridget doesn’t get to sit in them for too long before Cabo comes lumbering through the room! She has taken up residence on one of the extra bedroom beds, waiting for the grand girls to come back the end of July. X
