Let's get right to the important stuff. That is, the Friendly Fill-Ins, hosted by 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader!
Our wonderful hosts came up with some great ones this week. Here, see for yourselves:
1. I have seen _________ play in concert.
2. I would like to attend a _________ concert.
3. In the dead of Winter, I _________.
4. The main ringer on my cell phone is _________.
I always feel so inspired to give my best possible answers for these. I never know how well I succeed in that, but I always have fun trying!
1. I have seen Mannheim Steamroller play in concert.
(Remember not long ago, when I admitted that Mannheim Steamroller is the orchestral band behind some of my most favorite Christmas songs? Well, they came to my hometown a couple of years ago. Although I am generally one of the last people on this earth willing to sit through a concert, I of course had to go see these guys live. The best part was that it was indeed one of their Christmas shows, and it was phenomenal.)
2. I would like to attend a Mumford & Sons concert.
(As I mentioned above, I am not really one to go to concerts. I'm perfectly fine listening to my favorite tunes from the comfort of my own home. However, as a huge fan of folksy, alternative music, and therefore as a huge fan of Mumford & Sons, if they came to town, I'd be all ears.)
3. In the dead of Winter, I spend lots of time cuddling the furbabies!
(Cold, cold weather means no going outside to mow or weed or rake or even to go out for a stroll. But that's okay, because that means lots of extra time on the couch with the furry cuties in my life. This is probably why I don't despise winter as much as so many other folk around me. Honestly, what's better than extra cuddles?)
4. The main ringer on my cell phone is a ukulele.
(I'm voluntarily old-fashioned and carry around a cell phone that probably belongs in a museum. I'm totally okay with this, though, and the fossil in my pocket does have a variety of ringtones from which to choose, including a really fun and happy ukulele song. So, that's exactly what I chose.)
And now Eddy is ready to show you her snapshots of the week. She decided that, since her big sis Thimble got to pose with our kitty bookends in the library yesterday, she wanted to do the same for today. Of course, being Eddy, she didn't give me a proper chance to change the lighting, and she certainly didn't sit all that still. Dark and blurry they may be, though, here are Eddy's attempts at posing with our new kitty bookends:
Let's be honest. I essentially never alter photos after I've taken them. It pretty much comes down to a lack of skill and patience for such things (what's this you call Photoshop?). So, what I snap is what you get. I apologize, as that is why photos like these end up on our blog.
Yikes. Well, I'll at least give you an A for effort, Eddy!
And now, on to our art of the day. Yesterday was the Twelfth Day of Christmas, meaning we are officially wrapping up the holiday season. This weekend we will slowly start to take down our Christmas decorations. But, we won't be taking them down too fast. That's probably why we just couldn't help ourselves, and today we have yet another festive drawing for you.
I'm sure that's pretty close to how helpful Eddy and the rest of the furbabies will be during the Christmas decoration deconstruction. They're all about the
Wishing all of our furiends a happy Friday!
Our Tip of the Day:I was pondering a good winter tip for today, when I visited none other than Stunning CK yesterday and found the perfect one. So, today's tip is to help your furbaby have warm and cozy naps this winter by putting his or her favorite blanket in the dryer for a couple of minutes before putting it out for them to snooze on. It will come out deliciously warm, and they can burrow down for a toasty winter nap. You can do the same thing for yourself, such as before settling down on the couch for TV time, or before going to bed. Throw your cozy blanket in the dryer to make it even cozier, and of course to entice those furbabies to join you for a warm cuddle session!
