Thankful and Thoroughly poetic Thursday #81

Thank you Brian for hosting


Today I have two thankfuls. 

1.I'm thankful that I am a morning person. My kitchen sink faces East.  I often see spectacular sunrises.  This was what I saw on August 5 at 6:10 AM.  

2. I am thankful for good neighbors. Last week our neighbors, who live in the house shown in the picture above, were on vacation. We took care of their plants, mail and trash bins.  To thank us they brought us 4 Chocolate Hazelnut Croissants   


Angel Sammy and Teddy find such inspiring photos for us

This is our picture prompt

    Well, I was up before sunrise today and saw Saturn, Jupiter and Venus plus Betelgeuse and Aldeberan... because the sky is actually clear for once! I had an insomnia night - so sympathise with the young man entirely! YAM xx

  2. I love the poem, and applaud your neighbour's taste in thank you gifts!

  3. we love the poem... it can sure be like that LOL. and we love the hazelnut croissants they look tasty!!!

  4. Yum!! I'd take care of neighbor's house anytime,for those treats!!
    Gorgeous sunrise.

  5. Love your poem! It's wonderful to have nice neighbors and those croissants look delicious!

  6. excellent pay for house sitting. I am thankful our house faces north and south, kitchen to the south and front window to the west. we gage our thankfuls because this is perfect for Florida sun. I love a view out the kitchen window, and in fact love looking out all our windows. I can watch the sunrise this time of year looking to NE from the window in the bedroom or living area. today when we a walked, it was 6:50 and we saw the same look you saw. days are getting shorter and shorter

  7. That's a great poem for that picture. You have a great view out your window. We have too many trees in the way to see a good sunrise or sunset. Those treats from the neighbors look delish!

  8. Sunrises and sunsets like that are so wonderful to see. Thank you for capturing it.

  9. That is a lovely sunrise, and the treats look tasty.

  10. Lovely thankful things. Beautiful. I want one of those croissants.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, my friend. Big hug. ♥

  11. Hahaha... a very good poem! That is a very pretty sunrise. I am up by 5 am but I am not a morning person. My brain doesn't start firing till after lunch. Good neighbors you and good neighbors them. Good neighbors are hard to find.

  12. Those are both good thankfuls, after many years we have good neighbors on both sides of us. Good poem too. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  13. Wonderful thank yous ~ Lovely poetry ~ fun pic and captions ~ Xo

  14. Cute poem! Mom is totally NOT a morning person!!!

  15. Good job on the poem. To heck with the sunrise- I want a croissant. :) XO

  16. What a beautiful sunrise and nommy treats from your neighbor!

    What a perfect poem!!

  17. Maybe after I retire, I'll become a morning person again. Right now, working the 3-11pm shift I'm dead to the world (kind of like that guy in the picture) until at least 8am. I enjoy watching a sunset instead. By the way, retirement will be by the end of this month.
