I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. The girls and I have so many things to be grateful for, not the least of which are all of you, who read, comment on and share our posts each and every day. Four years ago, I started my tradition of Thanksgiving ABC’s, and on Thursday, I spent some time reflecting on everything I’m grateful for. Some things stay the same year after year, others change.
But before we get to my list, here’s a recap of the stories featured on The Conscious Cat this week: on Monday, we shared holiday safety tips for cats, on Tuesday, we provided some suggestions on how to stop your cats from begging at the table, and on Wedensday, we featured an in-depth interview with Simon Tofield, the creator of Simon’s Cat. And don’t forget to get your free copy of Adventures in Veterinary Medicine – offer good through Sunday only!
Have a great weekend!
Without further ado, here are my Thanksgiving ABC’s:
B: Buddhism. I’ve always been intrigued with Buddhist teachings, and have recently begun a more indepth study.
C: Cape May. I spent a few days there for the first time this year, and I fell in love with this charming beach town.
D: DaBird, because Allegra and Ruby love it so much, and it makes all three of us happy to play with it.
E: Eating out. One of my great pleasures.
F: Facebook – for all the friends I’ve made, and for our amazing community of cat lovers on The Conscious Cat Facebook page.
G: Google. I use it every day, all day long. What did we ever do without it?
H: Hot chocolate
L: Learning something new
N: New York City
O: Organic foods and cosmetics
P: my third Pettie for Best Pet Blog
Q: Quiet time. It’s essential for my well-being.
S: Simon’s Cat
T: Technology. The way it has changed our lives never fails to amaze me.
U: Unconditional love
V: Vacations. I don’t take enough of them, but I took a couple of short trips this year, and they made me realize how important getting away from it all is.
X: Xena: Warrior Princess. Because I admire strong, independent women.
Y: You, my readers!
Z: Zen. It’s a state of mind I strive for every day.
What are you thankful for on this holiday weekend?
