Friday Fun Time

Happy Friday to all! As always, we're starting our Friday off with the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, hosted by our wonderful friends over at 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader.

I was quite excited to see some festive, fall time fill-ins from our hosts this week!

1. October is the perfect time to _________.
2. Halloween _________.
3. Every October, I _________.
4. My experience with the supernatural world is _________.

I did my best to do these proud.

1. October is the perfect time to enjoy nature.
(I love autumn, especially October, for its cool weather, beautiful foliage, and overall atmosphere. Being outdoors is something I really enjoy, but I am not a fan of either extreme heat or extreme cold. That's probably why generally moderate October is just about my favorite month of the year.)

2. Halloween nearly tops my list of favorite holidays.
(Christmas and Halloween are my two favorite holidays. I probably like Christmas just a tad bit more than Halloween, but it really is a close one.)

3. Every October, I carve a jack-o'-lantern (or two, or three).
(One of the things I look most forward to about October and Halloween is that it's jack-o'-lantern season. I honestly can't really explain why I love them so much, but I really do.)

4. My experience with the supernatural world is elusive.
(I had a lot of trouble finding the right word to put here. I'm still not sure that's even the right one. While I enjoy books, movies, and TV shows about the supernatural, it's something that I'll admit I don't fully understand in the real world. I am a religious person, and to that extent I do believe in things that I know I will never fully understand.)

Guess what? It's time for your Eddy fix!

Eddy heard that Thimble got to share some bright and shiny shots yesterday, so Eddy was certain she had to do the same today.

I don't know what that's about. Eddy wanted to show off her sunshine, tongue, and blurry skills all in one shot. It doesn't help that her mom here couldn't manage to get the camera set up for a decent shot.

Have a beautiful day!

Our Doodle of the Day:

Our Tip of the Day:
We've been giving tips on symptoms of an ailing furbaby, but so far have primarily focused on the physical signs. It's not just our furbabies' bodies that can be affected by pain and illness, though, but also their mentality and their behavior. One example of this is aggression. If a previously docile cat or dog suddenly begins showing signs of aggression, such as uncharacteristic hissing or growling, that could certainly be a cause for concern. Pain or discomfort, which could stem from ailments such as arthritis or cancer, could potentially cause even a friendly cat or dog to act out, so if you notice any uncharacteristic signs of aggression, do be sure to have this checked out.

I enjoy your answers. I so agree with you about nature. My answer was similar. Yes to Halloween fun, too. I really love jack-o-lanterns, too. It just seems so nostalgic. Wildlife gets the spoils, too! I agree with you on #4, too. I understand totally. I answered this similarly, as well. Hugs!

Great fill-ins! We, too, enjoyed the fall-themed fill-ins and your answers. Hi Eddy! We liked seeing your sunshiny tongue.

What an adorable doodle! Perfect for this theme and also made me smile. I am so totally with you on #1. Unfortunately, here it's been in the mid 80s. However, I know that cooler, crisper weather is coming soon. I used to enjoy carving pumpkins, and I always love seeing them. Carving them is such a great fall tradition.

I'm happy to see Eddy's bright and shiny pictures. She looks a little cheeky in that second photo with her tongue out. :)

Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I October and November are my favorite time to go outside and I am right with you on the tie with Halloween and Christmas :) Eddy is adorable, great modeling. And the drawing is very cute too. And as always, the tip is excellent. Have a nice weekend!

"No, Mom! I WILL NOT look at the camera or sit still!" The supernatural is elusive - I think that's the perfect word for it.

We love the cool fall weather, too. It has dropped down to 89 out there. Perfect weather for a bonfire. Have a blessed week.
