Speaking of Friday, it's time for the always fun Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, hosted by our great pals over at 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader.
Here are the fill-ins our clever hosts came up with this week:
1. Yesterday, _________.
2. _________ regift _________.
3. My favorite holiday leftover is _________.
4. The best part of a long, holiday weekend is _________.
And here are my best attempts at doing them proud:
1. Yesterday, I stuffed myself full.
(I regret nothing.)
2. I never regift an item that I know is from the heart.
(If a gift is from family or a dear friend, if it was carefully chosen just for me, I will never regift it. Even if it's something not all that up my alley, it will still stay with me. It's the thought that counts! That being said, I rarely regift anyway. The only time I might even consider regifting in any way is when I've received something impersonal and completely unrelated to me. Such gifts are usually those from simple acquaintances and the like. Even then, I don't prefer to give such things as actual gifts, but more as a "here, do you need one of these?" sort of thing.)
3. My favorite holiday leftover is sweet potatoes.
(Remember last week, when I mentioned how my love for sweet potatoes is sort of new? Well, new or not, I really do like these taters. I don't have sweet potatoes on a regular basis throughout the year, so whether they're freshly made or leftovers, I savor them. I'll even eat them cold and as a dessert when I have them leftover in my fridge.)
4. The best part of a long, holiday weekend is more time with family and furbabies!
(There's nothing like an extended stay at home to visit with loved ones and snuggle the wazoo out of the furbabies in my life.)
Now, before my furbabies and I move on to our traditional day-after-Thanksgiving decking of the halls and singing Christmas carols nonstop, how about your Eddy fix? For that Eddy fix today, you get a flashback photo that I posted last year. Given that we are now in the purrfect Christmas spirit, I figured it was a good time to give you all a reminder of the Christmas Tree Terrorist that lived at our house last year. See?
Last year was Eddy's first Christmas, and she sure made the most of it. Which is probably why today's art, the first of which will likely be a great many Christmasy pieces, looks a little like this:
Warm wishes to all!
***Our Tip of the Day:
As Christmas approaches, please always keep in mind your furbaby's safety when decorating. When putting up a Christmas tree, consider whether you have a climber, and therefore whether you might need any special Christmas tree fortifications. Also be cautious what types of decorations go on the tree, or anywhere around the house. Tinsel, for example, can be hazardous, especially for those furabies who try to or do ingest it. And of course light strands must be strung as safely as possible, and it is perhaps most wise to keep all cords unplugged and out of reach when you are unable to monitor your furbaby around them. Don't forget to consider those ornaments, too! Do you have a batter or swatter of a kitty? If so, be cautious what types of ornaments are within their reach, if any. Christmas is indeed a wonderful, magical time of year. But, don't forget to always consider your furbaby's safety when decking those halls!
