Thankful Thursday August 20, 2020

I am so thankful for our blogging community.
Meeting such intelligent, interesting and kind
people from all over the world. 
Thank you all!
And special thanks to Brian and Sandee who make
my blogging world very special!

What a pleasant surprise! 
Ms. Purrseidon nominated me for the
Inspiration Blogger Award. 
Many thanks for this !
Here are my answers to her questions:

1. Do you have any advice to the new bloggers?
Write about what interests you, what makes you happy and what makes you laugh.  
2. Do you have any hobbies? 
 Yes. I love to cook, make baby quilts, swimming, reading and making art and taking walks .
3. Do you have any tips for a good life? 
As Auntie Mame said " Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death." I believe in living each day as if it is your last, being kind to all living creatures including humans who sometimes have to be forgiven for their behaviors.  
4. What two things make you happy? 
Living with my best friend/husband and visiting  with our family and friends.
5. What inspires you to write?
I enjoy the communal sharing of ideas, photos, art, jokes, recipes and opinions. 


  1. I am also thankful for the blogging communities. Even though I may not know them personally but they are very encouraging and I have learned many things from them.

  2. Congratulations! I live with my best friend as well. And if you're not writing about what you enjoy, why are you blogging?

  3. I'm thankful to be included with Brian. We both look at the positive side of life as you do.

I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
