Our hosts are always so creative, and this week was no different.
1. September bucket list: 1. _________ 2. _________.........
2. If I came with a warning label, it would say _________.
3. Truth be told, _________.
4. I would rather _________ than _________.
I stirred up those creative juices in my head for these. Here's where that led me:
1. September bucket list: 1. Master some homemade candy recipes. 2. Complete lots of crafts for upcoming holiday art fairs. 3. Scribble down some of the stories living in my head.
(For more on the first item on this list, see my fill-in #2 below. As for the second item on this list, as always, I'll be having fun at lots of arts and crafts fairs this year, and I need to get my pieces completed. And I know I've mentioned before my third item on this list. I love writing, and I always have stories playing out up there in my head. One of my dreams, ever since I was young, has been to write stories and books. I'm finally buckling down on this, and one of the projects I'm working on for the next few months is drafting and writing a variety of fun little stories.)
2. If I came with a warning label, it would say: DO NOT STORE NEAR CHOCOLATE.
(I love me some chocolate and sweets, but they don't love me. I've recently developed an intolerance for lactose, as well as gluten and excess amounts of sugar, which leaves me unable to eat a wide variety of said chocolate and sweets. Because I have something like zero self-control around chocolate, though, I simply no longer keep it in the house. At least, until I can master some homemade sweets that I can safely digest.)
3. Truth be told, I'm not a fan of small talk.
(I'm not much of a talker. At least, not in person. When someone strikes up a conversation, whether it be my loquacious neighbor or the cashier at the store, I can usually hold my own and politely chat away. But, truth be told, I'm usually not enjoying it, and I'm probably trying to find a way to escape. I've always been introverted, and I'm simply more of an observer than a talker.)
4. I would rather stay home with my furbabies than go on vacation.
(I've mentioned this before. I am a homebody, and when I have time off work, staycations are my thing.)
I bet most of you know what's up next. Well, do you know? It's Eddy! Blurry, blurry Eddy.
You might remember that Eddy recently had a couple weeks of sharp, focused shots. No more of that, though. Not at all. Her blurry style has returned.
I can't imagine why it wouldn't be obvious, but Eddy is indeed rolling about on her beloved fish aquarium here.
Yep, this girl is still in love with the new aquarium. She sits up there, harassing the fish, for hours and hours every day.
We're wishing everybuddy a fantastic Friday!
Our Artsy Fartsy Endeavor of the Day:
Our Tip of the Day:Disasters can happen. This is something that we've all been seeing in the news, and which many are, sadly, living out. For this reason, please always think ahead. For both your sake and for the sake of your furbabies, always have a disaster plan. Whether you live in a zone with hurricanes, tornadoes, forest fires, snow storms, or something else entirely, please always have a plan to help ensure the safety of both your furbaby and yourself. Have first aid and other care kits prepared. Have a destination planned out if a safe place is needed, and know how you will be able to travel there. Have supplies prepared that are easy to pack, including food and water as well as leashes, carriers, and other necessities for your furbabies. Ensure that your furbaby and even yourself has identification, in the event of a worst case scenario. I could continue on here, but I will instead suggest that you read more tips here, where Caren of Cat Chat with Caren and Cody has compiled a fantastic post on disaster preparedness. It is a significant post, and one that could be life-saving. Another beneficial read is this post on hurricane safety, shared by Melissa. There are many resources to help you prepare for disasters, so do consider researching and being ready for worst case scenarios.
