Thankful Thursday

 Finally! We have been having computer problems today. Yuck! Windows 10 did an hour long update and lost all of our sidebar gadgets. Mommy has been working all morning and part of the afternoon. We actually got a gadget for weather that works and our clock and calendar back!
We weren't on the puter last night because of the weather. For most of the evening we had lightning flashes and some hard rain. Now, I am not afraid of lightning flashs much, so I sat on my chair close to Mommy on her office chair and helped her be calm. [Mommy here. I love rainstorms!] It was important to stay off the puter. Even though we have a surge protector lightning can create problems for electronic things. And I think they "ground the building", whatever that means.  It is nice to not have the lights go out. Mommy said twice since we lived here and they were over in minutes. I think this place has a backup generator or something. 
Anyway, Mommy has errands to run tomorrow and she says some groceries are being delivered. She's not sure if she has monies for everything this month. [ Mommy here again. She hates loud thunder and rushes off to safety]
The grocery store doesn't have her coffee for some reason, so she ordered some from Amazon. She loves her Keurig and is down to only a couple pods for coffee and one light hot chocolate pod and a couple of tea  ones.
Please don't get between Mommies and their coffee! I have to wait till she has all her stuff for diabetes taken care of before her coffee. But while it's made and a little after she Furminates me and pets me. She says this will not  hurt her coffee, because it can cool down a bit before she drinks it.
(Shhh! I also whine till she makes sure I have foodies and water and brushes me. The diabetes stuff comes first though.)
Last night Mommy fell asleep on her office chair and woke up in the middle of the night and went to bed. I had to check her to make sure she was okay, and then we both went back to sleep. Me in my cat lounger/pillow/bed and her in the big bed. My bed (you've seen me sleeping in it) is at the foot of the big bed so I can keep an eye on her! I wont tell her that I was the one that woke her up. It's one of my duties to make sure she gets her sleep, and not in a chair!
 I bet she's thankful for getting to bed last night and getting some good rest!
I work hard to take care of her!
Please have a day filled with grace and love,
QUINNIE MAKALA

Glad all is well with ya'll Quinn. Glad your mommy could buy more pods. We have a single coffee maker fur mommy, but she just uses plain coffee. She can't affurd da pod things. And fur hot chocolate she just runs a cup of water and mixes in some cheap hot chocolate. Those pod chocolate really good tho' so tell your mommy to enjoy them and da groceries. Sorry 'bout da storms, we've had some 'round here lately too, but we's inside with mommy, so all's well. Have a great weekend.

Luv ya'
