Thankful Thursday


Is it Thursday again? Time really flies! I've been so busy but just couldn't resist spending a bit of time doing a thankful post. It helps to keep me in perspective. Especially when there is madness aplenty going on around here lately LOL!

So this week I'm thankful for some sunshine. Such a refreshing welcome after a long hazy and wet days.

I'm thankful that my petunias have such a strong surviving spirit LOL! Although badly neglected, they seem to be telling me nothing will break their stride. They will keep on blooming!


I am so thankful that LS has stopped teasing me about putting me on wheelies to go out. I was so afraid that she would do just that. I know she meant well when she sees my miserable face each time I have to miss my walkies due to the wet and muddy ground. But our legs are not meant to be on wheels except for car rides, are they?

So I'm thankful to go for walkies this week. Although judging from the picture below, I was more stunned, actually. I've not heard the word 'walkies' for so long that I didn't know how to react to it hehehe....

What are you thankful for? Hope everyone is having a good week so far!

Thankful Thursday is hosted at Grace Alone.

Oh dear, I have missed you too. Big hug. Hope the sun stays out for a while so there will be many walkies.
Have a wonderful week.

love the petunias.

happy, are the wheelies to refrain your feet from getting wet?

Denise said...

So glad you both get to enjoy the sunshine again. I like your petunias. Big hugs to you both, and much love.

Hi, Happy & LS...

Yeah...Those petunias grow no matter what...

The ones around My New Tree grew sooo big, My Mom had to cut them back so we could see the tree...

I'm Thankful for My Mom & Dad, & All My Friends, & Liver Treats...

Hi Happy
We are thankful for the sunshine & warm weather. It is so cold here for most of the year.
Great picture of you and enjoy your walkies.
Love Ruby & Penny

Peggy said...

Ohhh blessings LS & Happy...I so love my walkies...over to Serendipity Park!

Look at your petunias! Stretching to the heavens! WOW!

Just stay outta the mud & water!

With 6 over one gets "walkies" or wheelies!!! We all just get the door open & we run out in the patio! I'm glad you have sunshine...we have so much, it's still too hot.

Bravo says he wants some wheelies so his feet don't have to feel that hot outside...he's hanging out in the AC room all day and when he's out barking at the young guys shooting by on their wheelies! Then the whole crew starts in with their barking.

Hope you get to enJOY & some of the madness stops & eases up so you get a break & some rest! Take care...
(((hug))) & even some paws!!(pause)
Lucky, Chimi, Bravo, Chiqui, Toby & Chispa...Peggy, too

Sunshine and flowers are great things to be thankful for. Now I don't know about walkies unless it is inside my house! lol

Hi ya Happy, I'm thankful for the brilliant blue skies we had last couple of days before the rains started again! Still, the rain waters the plants and keeps them nice and lush so I guess I'm thankful for that too! Happy weekend.

Karen said...

What a neat blog...I will be back later to read more...Happy is very cute...and talkative!


Hi Happy,

I am thankful that there are more good people in this world than there are evil people like the jerk that broke Boca's jaw. Thanks for caring.

Love the little doggie on with the wheels but your much cuter.

My sister forwarded your blog to me. We have an older wire haired dachshund and she loves to ride in her Dr. Foster/Smith doggy stroller. You have a beautiful blog and I wish you a great weekend.

Hi Happy! Sorry I have not been able to visit for a while! I agree with you - dogs are not meant to go in wheelies! (although I'd like to see a wheelie big enough to carry me - hee! hee! Maybe a supermarket trolley??)

Glad to hear that you're back on walkies...but tell me? Why does it matter if your feet get wet? Did I miss something from previous posts?

Honey the Great Dane
ps. hey - will you a post a picture of you out on one of your walks one day?

Mack said...

We know exactly how you feel Happy - we haven't been on a proper walkie in forever~!

Carla said...

Petunias are one of my favorite flowers. Glad you're enjoying the sunshine and "walkies". I love sunshine, too.

Hi Happy! Glad you have some sunshine again and walkies. Do you have boots for walking when it's wet? Although a ride sounds kind of fun. Your petunias are gorgeous. You are a very good gardner.

I'm thankful for having so many friends and for my family that lets me sleep in their bed.


Thor said...

You always look so gorgeous, why can you not go out in the rain. You look sweet but you will not melt.

Hailey said...

Hi Happy! I read through your posts and found such uplifting words. I've decided I will most definitely drop by on a regular basis. I truly like your Thankful Thursdays and have asked my mom if I too can start using that as well. I have so much to be thankful for. One that brings to mind at this very moment other than my family, which is always first and foremost, but is all the fantastic furiends and moms I have met along the way thru blogging. Sometimes we forget that this blogging really helps moms to express a funny side of them! Thank you for reminding us all!

Your new furiend,
Hugs & smooches xoxo
