Feline Friday and Fun

Mr. Kitty was a storm watcher Wednesday!But the storm passed over us except for some snow and cold. So he decided to nap. I am late posting with Feline Friday but had to visit Sandee and Brian and everyone sharing their favorite feline.
Pink tea cup and saucer with pretty colorful teacup and saucers and a beautiful pink rose. I love all things tea related and am sharing with Pink Saturday
This google image is interesting. If you live in Utah, they say you will know what a Swig Sugar Cookie is. I found several recipes to vouch for this yummy looking cookie and it is frosted in pretty pink frosting. The cookie is soft and delicious and is known for signature rough edge. I love learning something new everyday.
Maxine has an opinion on cookies too! She loves 'em!

This is such a tiny photo but I found it while searching ancestry and it is my grandfather's mother and three sisters. My mother was only 13 years old when she lost her father. All these women were so strong. The youngest sister Theresa lived in Ohio but Francesca and Margaret were in Colorado. Mrs. M as I knew her, was my mother's aunt and she lived in Colorado Springs and raised a large phamily too. Margaret had two daughters, one who was a nurse and the other a county judge in Teller County. It was interesting because my husband had a newsletter from the office where he works, with attorneys and my mom's cousin, "the Judge" was featured in it. I enjoyed learning a little more about her even though I knew her when I was a child. In this photo Theresa is seated next to her mother but I am not sure which of the two older sisters were Margaret and Francesca. I sure love learning more about my phamily.
Forgiveness is something the world needs today. So much discord . Just because you think differently doesn't mean you should hate the person who thinks differently. We all have opinions but those opinions won't change anything. Actions will change and love always leads the way.
Today in the grocery store, a lady who usually stands around helping customers with questions and sometime is not the friendliest person. But today the one cashier was headed to her break so she took over cashiering. As she checked me out, she asked if I found everything ok. Than two older women approached her and they started to chat for a moment. The one lady hugged her and than came around and hugged me too, because I had to wait on their quick chat. I was smiling from ear to ear. What a thoughtful person. I knew the other lady must have been the cashier's mom. I was smiling that she is so blessed to have her mom and a good friend to stop in to say hello. Kindness, no matter how small, can brighten an otherwise drab day.
Oh how I love the innocence of Phamily Circus. Out of the mouth of babes, as they say!
Those years fly by so quickly.

I'd never heard of those swig cookies, but man-oh-man do they look delicious. (Now I MUST stop looking … lol!) How blessed, that you've captured so many family images - and memories, too. Francesca is one of my all-time favorite names. The 'Family Circus' cartoon series was one of the best!

I love those beautiful tea cups and saucers. I used to collect them years ago, but finally had to give them away. You have a wonderful day my friend, hugs, Edna B.

Hi Sweetie. We just got home and I saw your link to feline Friday. Thanks for joining the blog hop. It's most appreciated.

Good looking kitty. Being inside and napping during a storm watch is a good thing.

Love the tea cups and saucers. So Easter.

I ate some of the sugar cookies.

I hope you're having a great weekend. ♥♥♥

Happy Pink Saturday, Anne. I am so glad you joined us to make Pink Saturdays special. Those cookies look delicious and pretty, too.

Thank you for sharing your ancestral photo. I have been doing family genealogy since I was eight years old.
