Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Sunshine On My Shoulders

thankful thursday blog hop brian 07162020

Hello gang, once again it’s my pleasure to say 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 sunshine on my shoulders, boy it sure feels good.  Sunshine on my shoulders makes me nappy!  Seriously, it’s stupid hot here in the South once again but I’ve gotta say the sunpuddles have been glorious.  Oh, don’t worry, I won’t get sunburn.  If I need some sunscreen I just go sit behind Dad.

Of course when it’s this hot the Dad makes sure that our feral family has lots of clean water.  They’ve looked pretty hot when they come to dinner but at least they’ve been in the shade up along our back tree line.  Sometimes at night when the Dad goes out to bring their bowls inside he sees a sea of cat eyes up at the tree line.  Sometime late at night the Dad looks out and sees several of them snoozing away on our deck.  We’re all thankful they feel safe on our deck.

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!

Tonight i am thankful the lawn got mowed and was finished about ten minutes before the rain started. It was excellent timing!

We love sunshine on our shoulders, too. It’s been stupid hot here, too, Brian. But today was actually pleasant enough for Mom and Dad to go outside for their daily walk. 🙂 Hugs!

One thing I’m not thankful for is that the hots are coming our way next week. I am thankful the peeps went to the supermarket today and I got rotisserie chicken.

I am so grateful for our nature walk last weekend. A today I’m grateful for the cool breeze and my yoga practise that helps me power through my day.

I am also grateful for the delicious food on our table and our furry babies, Mishka and Laila.

Thanks for hosting Brian. Have a relaxed, serene week ahead!

That sunlight is highlighting your beautiful first and pointing out the fact that you have pretty pink inside your ears and also showing us how beautiful your face is. I’m thankful that you have sunshine and that your feral cats have a safe place to live with food and water

We are enjoying a two day heat break before it ramps up again. At least kitties enjoy toasting themselves in the sunshine. We don’t like it much.

Feral kitties are really lucky to get such good care. It’s wonderful they feel so safe on your deck. It’s hot here, too, but we are enjoying sunpuddle, too.
Stay cool and have a great day!

Meowser Brian dear furiend, thank you for hosting this blog hop. You’re so right about the wonderful sun puddles…. and most afternoons, we have rain puddles, too. This morning was unusual because it rained in the early morning, so it is already wet instead of just humid.

It’s stupid hot here too but the dog loves to stand out in the sun when we go for walks. He’ll just stand there with his eyes closed and bask in the sun.

Your dad takes such good care of all of you and your ferals.
We’re having a not-so-hot day today, which means it’s under 100. I’m thankful for that because it means the windows stay open longer in the morning.

I can see the contentment on your face. Heck, your whole body screams contentment! These days, the sun is pretty intense here, but with low humidity, it is lovely in the shade. So, today, I am thankful for the sun AND the shade!

We love the sunshine naps inside our cool house. We are also thankful that Mom keeps a gallon of water in the fridge all the time to fill our bowls. We really do like cold water.
