Thankful Thursday

Genji: Yesterday was Send A Card day, and we received the cutest cat ever from our friends Zorro and Pixie at The Swiss Cats:

And it wasn't just the card. It came in a box with an absolutely beautiful patchwork blankie!

Here is a close-up:

We are thankful to Pixie, Zorro and Mum Claire for the lovely  gift! 

I haven't tried it out yet because I was bust having a nap on another blankie!

Tommy: We don't get a lot of snow where we live, so everyone was surprised when it started to snow on Tuesday, and then it snowed and snowed and snowed! We ended up with something close to 25cm which is about 10 inches! The last time it snowed like this was back in 2010! Yesterday morning, #1 and I headed out on foot to visit Heloise, Hotesse and Doucette. It took us about 40 minutes to get there!

It really felt like winter!

At times I thought I was going to sink!

By the time I got there, I had snow danglies everywhere!

But I had so much fun, and the girls were very happy to see us!

 It took us another 40 minutes to get back!

I am thankful for the wonderful snow and that #1 was happy to come out with me!


  1. that was such a sweet idea to send you a blankie... it#s super cold outside today, our snow is gone but Jack Frost currently rules...

  2. That is a lovely card and pawsome blankie you got from the Swiss cats and their purrson :)
    That is also an impressive amount of snow :o
    Our weather continues to be like a pendulum.
    Our snow is gone and it is raining.
    Enjoy that snow Tommy!
    Purrs Georgia,Julie and JJ

  3. What a cute card from Zorro and Pixie! And wow, that is a lot of snow! I'm glad you and #1 still got to visit your pals, Tommy!

  4. What a wonderful card and gift, and much snow! I like your snow dangles, Tommy!

  5. Une très jolie carte !
    C'est fou toute cette neige. C'est beau mais pas simple pour circuler je présume.
    Tommy tu es mignon avec tes décorations ... c'est du dernier chic !

  6. Such nice things from sweet friends! Yuck, we're not snow fans here, but it is pretty!

  7. We're so glad you like the card and the blanket ! You've got a lot of snow, we don't have seen a snow flake since December. Purrs

  8. That is such a cute card and a beautiful quilt!!!

    Tommy - we are SO incredibly jealous of your snow. NONE of us have ever seen that much snow. Enjoy it to its fullest. We love your snow dangles:)

  9. That sounds like snow much fun, Tommy!

    the critters in the cottage xo

  10. Very, very delightful card. And whoa, what a blanket! The filling in the quilt will be so nice and cushiony as well as toasty warm. The pattern of the fabric is just adorable. Most kind of the Swiss Cats to remember you.
    That’s is some hike you and #1 took, dear Tommy. Quite a bit of snow for you. Hope you don’t catch cold. Did #1 have to warm your feeties when you got home? Brrrrrr.

  11. Walking in a winter wonderland. We can tell that you had a great time playing in all that snow. You have more than we do right now.

  12. Gee, we get that much snow many times per winter. Hope you enjoy your snow.

  13. Tommy! Mommy LOVES your dangles! She has not seen them since the Hairy Slobbery Sister Bob went to the brought back some great memories.
    And that is such a cool quilt and a cool card you guys got from the Swiss Cats!
