Feline Friday and More Fun

Feline Friday I never knew a cat who was safe around a bird but I guess it can happen. These two seem happy together.  They are very sweet together. Being different is nice.
Here are my answers to Friendly Fill-Ins:

1. I had a breakfast burrito at breakfast. It was great, with chorizo, egg and potato plus yummy green chili. 

2. I LOVE surprises.  I am good at keeping secrets so that helps when I am planning a surprise for someone else.

3. Seeing my phamily is my idea of fun.

4. If I were a food I would be a juicy steak so someone could enjoy a wonderful special meal. 

Stop by and thank Ellen and also Lorianne . They co host this fun meme.
If you visit Beverly you can share in the weekly anything goes Pink Saturday.
I found this google image and it was created by I love butterflies and roses and pink so it added up nicely. Happy Pink Saturday.

It is just silly humor.
Kristi and co hosts Here are my ten things of thankful:

1. Sunshine and Cool Breezes, we have been having a major heat wave. The rain we have received isn't enough to help but it did provide some cool breezes which helps. Thankful for these simple things we often take for granted. 

2. Hats: I Just bought the hubby two new Kentucky Wildcat Basketball hats. I bought myself one too. They are so good helping  to keep you cool on hot summer days.

3. Friends: they are a benefit like vitamins or cold water. We all need them even if we have one or two good friends. 

4. Baseball: I will always love the game. I will never love the politics tangling with sports. As a child we played baseball and enjoyed the long summer days. We were carefree and did not worry about the things youngster have to worry about today. I am grateful. Thankful I had a father who taught me much about the game. 

5. Sundresses: my favorite summer clothing. I love them. They twirl and when it comes to dresses, I Like flowy slinky fabrics or cotton twirly patterns too. It is the one thing about summer I love. Thankful for these pretty dresses.

6. Encouraging others: I have belonged to a group that sends encouragement to others. We just sent a birthday greeting to a WWII veteran who turned 100. He was in the Battle of the Bulge. He was also a Purple Heart recipient. Thankful I can encourage someone.

7. History: I love history and always have. I think we should learn from it not erase it. I particularly love hearing stories from Veterans of Wars.  They each tell such amazing human interest stories and we should be listening, loud and clear. Thankful for their stories and their sacrifices.

8. Food: I think food is something to be really thankful for. There are lots of choices today. As a child we did not go into a store and look over hundreds of snacks or other treats. Our mothers cooked the same meals, nearly in rotation weekly. SONdays at my childhood home, my mom made fried chicken or pot roast with all the fixings. Grateful for the good parents and good food we had. Thankful to be able to enjoy it all.

9. Earrings: I am thankful for lots of pretty earrings that I have on a turntable metal rack. A few years ago I was involved in company called Premier Designs Jewelry. I bought lots of beautiful pieces especially necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Today I Have friends who sell Paparazzi Jewelry. Everything costs $5 and there are many pretty earrings. I am thankful for friends who often gift me a pretty piece of jewelry and thankful I can purchases some pieces for gift giving.

10. Health: For my age I am thankful my heath is good. I don't have to take lots of medications and I Have many natural products to help me stay healthy. I am thankful for all of it.

What are you thankful for?

Cool breezes on hot days are so welcomed.
I remember those days of eating certain meals on certain days. I even did some of that kind of cooking. HaHa
One of my grandmothers loved baseball and would sit in her rocking chair right next to the old upright radio so she could hear all the plays.
There is so much to learn from history and to consider as we live out our lives now.
Enjoyable TToT.

Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I get too excited about gifts to surprise anyone, I usually give the gift as soon as I buy it instead of waiting. I like your thankfuls. Living in America, we are truly blessed with freedom and an abundance of food. Have a nice weekend. XO

Did you take my list? Just kidding but it really could be MY list! Simple things that I love. If I leave the house and forget my earrings, I go back:)
Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

Now I'm craving a breakfast burrito. Seriously, that's one of my all-time favs. Where do you get your green chile? I need to place another order from the folks in Hatch, NM. Yesssss on hats ... I love them, but they have to be just the 'right' shape so I don't look like a giant walking nose. LOL. Do you ever watch Hoda Kotb on the Today Show? Such a cute, cute personality. The other day she was talking about adding to her (growing) collection of "Covid Hats." I know they've saved the day for me on many a bad hair day!

I just love that image of the parakeet and the cat sitting side by side. Why can't humans be like that too? Enjoy your day, hugs, Edna B.

Thanks for linking up with the Ten Things of Thankful again! Good food, friends, and a cool breeze on a hot day--all simple, yet important, things!

We are thankful for so many of the same things! When my daughter was 2, she had SO MANY cute little sundresses. (Hand me downs.) She looked ridiculously adorable that summer! We had outdoor church this morning, and the breeze was SO nice.
Laughter and Consistency
