Given that it's that special day of the week, we'll get right to the always fun Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, hosted by our good friends at 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader.
Yet again, our wonderful hosts have crafted some great fill-ins for us. I love the endless options the first fill-in offers, as you can see below:
1. _________ a _________.
2. My favorite magazine is _________.
3. Recently, _________.
4. Even though _________, I _________.
I really had to put my brain to the test. But that's a good thing! My brain could use all the exercise it can get. So, I thought, and then I thought some more, and here's what I came up with:
1. I am a Luddite.
(Who knows what a Luddite is? I didn't used to, but I've learned. A Luddite, strictly speaking, refers to a 19th century British worker who strove to destroy the machinery that began replacing the human workforce Nowadays, though, it also has a more general meaning, and can simply refer to someone who is resistant to technological change. My sister never understands why I don't want a smartphone, or why I still almost exclusively read physical books rather than ebooks. She calls me a Luddite, and I won't argue with that.)
2. My favorite magazine(s) is (are) Cat Fancy and Dog Fancy.
(I actually no longer subscribe to many magazines, not even these. But, for years I received Cat Fancy and Dog Fancy every month. I actually still have all of them stashed away, because I just couldn't bring myself to discard the great info and pictures and overall adorableness within those pages. I may or may not have a problem.)
3. Recently, I learned that Thimble loves marshmallows.
(I was eating a fruit salad the other day, to which I added marshmallows, because, you know, why eat healthy? Anyway, Thimble found me and my marshmallows and swiftly stole one from the bowl. She did not eat it, but instead thought it was just about the funnest thing to bat around. This has now become a common occurrence. It's sad for Thimble, though, when she bats the marshmallow too close to pup Astrid, because then it quickly disappears.)
4. Even though I don't paint, I really enjoy watching Bob Ross's show.
(I love art, but painting is not my thing. I have to have a pencil or pen of some sort in my hand to feel comfortable. So, painting has never been my strong point by any means. Nevertheless, I love watching episodes of Bob Ross's show, where he so nonchalantly paints these incredible masterpieces in 30 minutes or less. I sometimes struggle just to succeed at those supposed 30-minute meals, and then there's Bob Ross, who paints an entire forest of happy trees in less time than it take me to put a plate of pasta on the table.)
Well, with the Fill-Ins all filled in, that means it's time to give you all your main Eddy fix for the week. Believe it or not, I actually got the girl to sit still. But, it was in a relatively dark room, and she refused to look at me.
Well, we gave it our best. Thanks for sort of cooperating, Eddy!
We're wishing everybuddy a fantastic Friday!
Our Tip of the Day:Although not exactly toxic to your cat or dog, it is not recommended that you feed your furbabies treats such as marshmallows. Foods like marshmallows contain a fair amount of processed sugar, which is not an ideal component in your furbaby's diet. Especially if eaten in large quantities or at a high frequency, this sugar could potentially affect a cat or dog's blood sugar levels, and in a negative way, not to mention that there is always the potential for weight gain with unhealthy treats like marshmallows. What's more, especially for smaller animals, marshmallows and other large or sticky foods can be a potential choking hazard. So, when it comes to your furbaby, try to stick to those treats that are known to be safe and healthy.
