Our hosts have given us some fantastic and festive fill-ins.
1. My favorite part of November is _________.
2. Every November, I _________.
3. For me, peace _________.
4. So far, my upcoming holiday plans _________.
Here's what I came up with for these:
1. My favorite part of November is Thanksgiving.
(Cliché answer, huh? That being said, I won't lie, Thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday. But, I still enjoy it. It's a wonderful time to visit with and be grateful for family and friends, and for all the blessings in our lives. Not to mention there is some yummy food to be had. And, of course, Thanksgiving means we're that much closer to Christmas.)
2. Every November, I bake lots of pies.
(In the past couple of years, I have developed a newfound joy for baking pies. It is now a tradition of mine to bake pumpkin, pecan, and chocolate pudding pies for any Thanksgiving gathering I attend. I love making them and sharing them with family.)
3. For me, peace is a quiet night at home with the furbabies.
(I am most comfortable and at peace when I'm at home. I am a homebody, and I find great peace in the simplicity of sitting on the couch and cuddling my kitties and pup.)
4. So far, my upcoming holiday plans include our usual family traditions.
(I'm a grown adult now, but my family's holiday plans are still very similar to what they were when I was a child. My parents, my sister, and I all get together and celebrate the holidays just like we always have. It makes me feel like a kid again. I love it.)
Now, who's ready for Eddy?
In true Eddy style, this is a perfectly blurry and unprofessional shot. We wouldn't have it any other way!
Happy Friday, friends!

Our Tip of the Day:
Today we're continuing our tips on how to keep your furbaby safe around Thanksgiving and all holiday foods. We've so far mentioned the importance of keeping garlic, onion, and other alliums away from your kitties and pups, as well as grapes and raisins. Today we have yet another obvious one that we're sure you all know, and that is chocolate. Chocolate contains theobromine as well as caffeine, which both can be hazardous to our furbabies. It is therefore of course safest to keep your furbaby away from chocolate cookies, cakes, breads, puddings, and candies, and anything containing chocolate chips or other chocolate components. In this same line of thought, all sweets are best kept out of reach for the health and safety of your cat or dog. Excess sugar can be unhealthy and dangerous, as can foods containing artificial sweeteners such as xylitol. As always, when in doubt, do not feed it to your furbaby.
