Thankful Thursday

Tinker, "Tuesday and Wednesday we finally got to play on the deck! It was sunny and warm, the birds were chirping up a storm which came last night. We are not used to lightning flashes or the loud booms.
 My tail is showing the bird thermometer of how warm it was all day Tuesday and Wednesday. Winter is finally out of here, yeah!
When Mommy was working in the barn Monday,  she brought out these mushroom chairs the humans take to the park. They don't want to sit on the poopy benches!
Yesterday Mom and Mike took lots of stuff from the barn to the Mennonite shop but she came home with a new quilt for Grammom's bed, a rooster plate and a wood picture frame with glass that matches frames Mom puts our enlarged photos in after painting the frames black.
Sorry we have not blogged for a few days, Dad was put on a med last fall that built up in his only kidney and it finally showed up causing him painful gout. He went to a foot doctor which did extensive blood work and that is how he found out. His heart doctor fixed his meds and now Dad is feeling better today. 
Dad had lots of bad pain in one foot, then the other so he couldn't work in his food garden, now he knows he can get his new plants in soon.  We are thankful he is feeling better and will be able to do what he looks forward to doing after a LONG winter....Gardening! =^Y^=

What a wonderful porch you have! We were experiencing those great temps too until a nasty cold front blew through. Happy Thursday!

What great weather you are having! Mummy is trying to get our porch ready for sitting when the weather lets her. Then I can sit outside and my buddies can come visit me. So glad your Dad is better, and can work his garden soon. Take Care Dad...XO

We're still waiting for spring weather, sadly. What a crummy winter this has been--endless! Please enjoy your lovely deck for us too. :-)

We're glad your dad is doing better now!

We hope your good weather stays, but if it's anything like ours, winter just wants to hang on! It was cold here today...only 40 degrees! We're hoping this colder weather doesn't stick around for long.

We're glad your dad is feeling better.
