Hey guys. Y’know…it’s fall now but it hasn’t been real cold yet. But this past week there’s been some mornings when it’s been just a little bit chilly. On those days the fireplace gets turned on and I get to warm up my furs. Sure feels good. I bet you guys wish you were lying here too…right?

So that’s what I’m thankful for today. How ‘bout you…what are you thankful for?

  1. It turned cold and wet here a week ago so the log burner got lit. I think it is the first time we have lit it as early as the end of September. Afternoons I do much the same as you Ernie, except I sit in the recliner and not on the floor.

  2. We would be super thankful for some cooler air. Enjoy your warm fireplace.

  3. It’s not cold here yet, but we will probably be wishing for your nice warm fireplace in a few weeks. Enjoy!

  4. Lucky you Ernie! We have our firewood for the season all stacked and ready to go but so far Dad hasn’t made a fire yet. Mom and I are not pleased – we’ve had some chilly evenings! I’m gonna show him your photo – maybe that will WAKE HIM UP! Enjoy……..

    Hugs, Teddy

  5. That looks like the perfect place to be right now, Ernie.

  6. I could use some cooler air. Summer is hanging on here and plenty o’ rain. As usual.

  7. That looks so cozy … we’re still running our air conditioning! Summers seem to be getting longer even though the darkness comes sooner!

  8. Oh, you warm little darling kitty, how sweet to be by a nice fire and we are thankful for THAT for you.

  18. We run our fireplace in the early morning and like it very much too

  19. I do! I would love to have a working fireplace, Ernie! We have three here, one in the living room, one in the enclosed patio, and one outside – and none of them work!

  20. Yes, I would love that, Ernie 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy warm weekend 🙂 ♥

  21. Ernie you look great in front of that fire. But it’s like 90 degrees here still. We’re wishing and waiting for some cooler weather — 70 degrees would be ok with us.

  22. that looks like the perfect spot. i’m not sure i’d leave that spot all winter.

  23. I have also started turning on the fireplace now that it’s getting cooler in the mornings and evenings! The cats love it!

  24. You’re so lucky to have a fire! Okay, we don’t need a fire, but it would probably still feel nice!

  25. Well you sure look nice and warm and cozy, Ernie! We’ll probably be firing ours up any day now, too.

  26. You sure do look toasty, Ernie. Laying by the fire is the best!

  27. Ernie, maybe someday we’ll get a fireplace that works around here, but it’s low on our house to-do list!

  28. Ernie, you are so lucky. Mom has wished for a working fireplace for years and years! Dad promised her gas logs for her birthday about ten years ago, but she still hasn’t received them. Enjoy…we are so jealous. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet

  29. Terrific Thankful! We love the firelight on your furs Ernie! We sure miss the fireplace we had in Vancouver…But we got way better sun puddles here!

  30. We wish we had a fireplace…but since this is a very old and rather rickety frame house, it might not take kindly to one…so we lay by the furnace grates or sunpuddles. This weekend there are none…phooey, its very sodden here…blech.
