Now, since it's Friday, guess what's going on? The Friendly Fill-Ins, of course, hosted by none other than 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader!
Here are the fill-ins our fantastic hosts cleverly created for us this week:
1. My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is _________.
2. My least favorite thing on my daily to-do list is _________.
3. I could really do without _________.
4. I would love to have more _________.
And here are my best attempts at them:
1. My favorite thing on my daily to-do list is my morning workout.
(This answer could really change depending on the day and my mood. But, today, this is my answer. I'm an early riser, and though this may sound less than enjoyable to some, I really enjoy starting my day with a workout. Not only does it wake me up, but I have found a routine that I actually enjoy. I do combat fitness, and there's something really fun about that. Well, at least to me there is. Fear not, though, before I work out I always feed the kitties. And, of course, I always get help during my workout from those full-bellied kitties. They're ridiculously cute, though, so I don't mind.)
2. My least favorite thing on my daily to-do list is heading out to work.
(I don't like to complain about work. After all, #adulting typically involves heading out to earn a paycheck, and I'm grateful for my job. But, being more introverted and a dedicated homebody, I admittedly prefer being home with my cats and pup. So, I'd be lying if I denied that I'd rather not have to head out to work every day. It's not that I dislike what I do, and my workplace is actually pretty relaxed and lenient and so it's really not a terrible place to work. But, if working from home ever becomes an option for me, I'll probably jump all over that.)
3. I could really do without this heat and humidity.
(These days, when I step outside, I feel like I'm constantly on the verge of melting. I'm more of an autumn kind of girl, and I am very much looking forward to September and October.)
4. I would love to have more patience.
(In some regards, such as when it comes to things about which I am passionate or intrigued, I think I am a fairly patient person. In other regards, though, I could really use more of this wondrous stuff. I think I lack most of my patience when it comes to learning new skills that don't really interest me, such as skills involving anything too high tech for the Luddite that I am. For example, I got my first ever smart phone not too long ago, and even figuring out new apps on it really tries my patience. In other words, I usually just hand it over to my sister so that she can figure it out for me. I would love to be self-disciplined enough to be patient in any situation, but I am definitely a work-in-progress in this regard.)
So, now, all this week the furbabies here have been showing off their love for their new Fish TV. The only one who hasn't shown off her fishy fondness is Eddy.
This girl can multitask, enjoying Fish TV and Squirrel TV all at the same time. What's more, did you know that a fish tank can make for a great spot to relax?
We hope all of our furiends out there have a fantastic Friday!
Our Doodle of the Day:
Our Tip of the Day:Never forget that, just as with a human child, raising and training dogs or cats takes patience. No person, no animal, can learn tricks or learn what is right and what is wrong without a bit of trial and error, so never lose your patience if your furbaby has moments of slow progress or slip-ups. Teach tricks in short sessions, so that neither of you get tired or frustrated. And during those sessions, use training tools such as treats and toys, which can help keep your furbaby focused and positively rewarded. If you do find yourself growing frustrated, do not take it out on your pup or kitty, but instead take a break, for both your sake and theirs. After all, our furbabies can sense when we are uptight, and that could perhaps even hinder their progress. Rome wasn't built in a day, as they say, and neither can we or our furbabies. Patience is a virtue, and of course that even goes for raising and training a furbaby!
