Thankful Thursday

Hosted at Grace Alone

"With man, this is impossible, but with God all things are possible"
Matthew 19:26

LS :

Once again, this week I'm thankful for the time to do a post. Sorry I have not been around to visit much lately. Things are a bit rough at the moment. Even right now I'm struggling with this post as it is. LOL! Not sure why my blogger page keep getting disconnected after every other sentence I typed. I have no problem with other websites though. Hmm...Any idea?

I've been at the receiving end of plenty of monkey wrenches lately. This morning I had a rather testy time dealing with some people. I have to admit I was ready to throw back a couple of wrenches. LOL! Oops! Then out of the blue these words popped into my mind.

"If life throws you monkey wrenches, tighten nuts and bolts with them"

I'm sure we all have heard of the saying "when life hands us lemons, make lemonades out of them". Right, but I don't have a creative mind and I'm never good with words. So where did that come from?

Something to be thankful for. A reminder to stay in perspective and change my focus. I felt quite a lot better now. I'm thankful for this. So I'm going to find out what I can do with the monkey wrench.


I'm thankful the diapers were finally off few days back. Phew! I'm also thankful that LS brought back some lamb chops for dinner few days ago. She's been giving me some of it. Yummy! Now I'm eyeing the extra leftover gravy. Do you like lamb chops?

Hope everyone is having a thankful time!

Thankful Time

Hosted at Grace Alone

Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9


I'm thankful for the time to do a thankful post this week, although it's a day earlier. Of late I've been rather busy and altogether missed doing a thankful post, which I've very much come to enjoy doing. So here's a little break of convention *cough cough*

Having a loving mother is such a blessing. Having another person who became close to being a second mom to you is a double blessing. I had that. For she came when I was so far away from my own mother. Even though she was here just for a season of my life, I'll always be thankful for that. Sadly, she lost her battle with breast cancer.

As October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, here's a tribute to this special woman. And to all who had fought and is still fighting. Have courage.

May their cups runneth over
with our thoughts and prayers


I'm thankful that some of our doggy friends have been able to sniff out cancer. Although it's a small percentage and more research need to be done, it is still quite a breakthrough. Do you think dogs can sniff out cancer?

I'm also thankful that we doggies have an incredible sense of smell. To think of all the lovely smells we can sniff! My favourite would be the yummy aroma of bacon. What's your favourite smell?

Hope everyone is having a thankful time.

Nappy for Happy?

Hi everybody! Hope everyone is having a good week. It has been a crazy time around here. LS is rather busy. Sorry we haven't gotten around to visit much. Sure have missed everyone.

I've been rather bored too. No walkies, not much playtime with LS and worse of all, on diapers the whole time!

But I did have an entertaining time watching LS trying to explain to a neighbour about the bag of diapers she lugged home from her shopping hehehe...

LS said it was a bit of a misfortune to bumped into this nosy neighbour while she was carrying the diapers in a transparent shopping bag.

The lady was eyeing LS up and down, mostly looking very hard at her tummy. But when LS said the diapers were for me, her eyes nearly popped out. Wonder what she thought of LS.

I decided to rescue LS after seeing that she was starting to get a bit flustered without knowing how to cut short the conversation. The lady is known to be not so easily shaken off.

So I did what we doggies would do in times like this. Barked my head off. So LS told the lady she'd better go in before the whole neighbourhood heard me.

LS said she owed me one. So I'm preparing her a list for this weekend. I deserve lots of yummy treats, don't you think?

Have a great weekend everybody!

We're back

Hi everybody! Looks like LS and I have been missing for a bit here. LS has been busy with work. Then she was off for a break and after that she caught a bug. So she couldn't find the time to help me with the computer.

I've been busy too. Busy with nothing. Have you ever been busy with nothing?

Remember this picture a while ago? Well, the diapers is back on again. Sigh...

This is long overdue...oops! We'd like to thank our friends for these awards.

Thank you Abby! Thank you, Hershey & Kaci!
Thank you Cocoa & Barley!

We're quite behind in catching up with everyone. We'll be going around soon.
