Funny Friday Photos and Gratitude

Hello to one and all! It's Friday, and even better, today after school marks the beginning of spring break at my school. That means one full week off--and I'm saying it here so I'll follow through--to write my little heart out. Fingers crossed I'll log some serious wordage.

Last week's funniest photo is:

And here's this week's!

The water is clean, so what the heck is with the algae behind the fish? Maybe that's why it's so grumpy.

No, he will not cheer up. I know people like this.

All the creative kittens are...

Oh the poor thing!

Some days I could go this way...easily.

And the pun:

I think my favorite is the shrinking cat. Of  course, the dog that ate the bee is hilarious, too.

I found this video about gratitude while preparing for the Mindfulness Groups I do at school, and thought it was the most beautiful, accurate, inspirational video I've seen in a while. Gratitude is actually a practice of mindfulness, and many people keep gratitude journals to help them focus on what they have, rather on what they don't.

The nifty thing about our brains is that just by being thankful, thinking thankful thoughts, it releases neurotransmitters that make us feel all warm and fuzzy. Or at the very least, better. You should try it, because it's really easy. Just count your blessings!

Have a very good day. :)

Did you like the video? Do you have a favorite photo?


  1. All the cat ones made me laugh.

    Have a great spring break! I'm sure you'll get a ton of writing done.

  2. I don't know where you find these, but they always crack me up. Sour Puss is good as is procrasti - nation. I'm a naturalized citizen of that nation. :P

    Have a great spring break. My son starts his next week too. :)

  3. The shrinking cat is my favorite as well. I had a cat. I know truth. :)

  4. I love the monkey and the dog! Wishing you a very satisfying week of lots of writing. This will be one of my last weeks, too, before everything cranks into high gear. I'll be channeling your go-getting attitude. :)

  5. I can always use reminders to be grateful-- lovely. My son's dog had a confrontation with a bee when he was just a puppy. He never yelped, so it must not have bothered him too much, but his little nose got a bit swollen too!

  6. I'm gonna go with raptor kitten. Have a great weekend, Lara!

  7. Loved the pic of me, since I'm the leader of that nation. Sour puss is just plain truth, since all cats are.

  8. I hope everyone had a great week! Thanks for voting - we wouldn't have a weekly favorite without you!
