I'll start with the Fill-In challenge today. For this challenge, the hosts will give the challengers fill-in-the-blank sentences to complete. This is my first time doing this sort of challenge, so I'll apologize in advance for any lack of creativity or skill on my part. That all being said, these are the fill-ins given this week:
- I want to stop _________ and start _________.
- I haven't _________ in _________.
- I believe _________.
- My earliest memory is _________.
- I want to stop being lazy and start getting more organized.
- I haven't stepped foot in a library in over a year. (How horrible! I read all the time, but I get most of my books online now.)
- I believe that knowledge is power.
- My earliest memory is when I was roughly 3 years old and my childhood budgie bird named Pippin escaped from our house and went missing for roughly 30 minutes. (He ended up in a neighbor's yard. We caught him, took him home, and had creamy garlic pasta for supper. Isn't it strange what details we remember sometimes?)
Now, we'll move on to our bloopers. This time around, the furbabies offered lots of close-up photo fails. So, I figured why not feature some of those shots today...
Thimble may love to pose for the camera, but that doesn't mean she doesn't like to give the lens a good ol' smudging every once in a while.
Evan often asks, "What is with this thing that you keep shoving in my face, Mom?"
Eddy wanted to make sure that everyone got a real good, closeup view of her Elvis snarl.
Sometimes, when I ask Astrid to smile, she turns into a phantom instead.
This momma was glad to find out that it's not just my furbabies who offer up plenty of bloopers. The other furbabies in the family participated as well...
Toby is really, really proud of his whiskers.
Trapper, like my boy Evan, really wants to know why this flashy box thing keeps getting all up in his business.
Talon decided to photobomb his little sister Gemma by, well, squashing her with his face. (Do you see poor Gemma there in the bottom right corner?)
Gemma recovered from being squashed, though, only to be distracted by the flashy box during snack time. (Do you like Freya's lip-licking photobomb?)
Finished with her snack, Freya thought she'd take a turn to offer the camera lens a good ol' nose painting.
Wishing all of our furiends a happy and fun Friday!
Our Tip of the Day:
As disheartening or morbid as it may seem, it is important to always remember to account for the fate of your furbabies should anything happen to you. Be sure that you have a person and/or place lined up to take in your furbabies should you become injured or incapacitated and unable to care for them. Similarly, include your furbabies in your will. Talk to family and friends and inquire as to whom might be willing to take in your furbabies should it come to that. This way, if the unthinkable happens, your furbabies' fate will not be an unknown.
