Here are this week's fun fill-ins from our hosts:
1. The best part of last week was _________.
2. The worst part of last week was _________.
3. _________ is a Winter project I will be working on.
4. A holiday gift that I always buy for someone is _________.
And here's how I fared:
1. The best part of last week was finishing my Christmas shopping.
(This year, to reduce stress and festive freakouts, I set myself the goal of finishing my Christmas shopping by December 1st. I surprised myself by actually succeeding in that.)
2. The worst part of last week was realizing that a couple of the Christmas gifts I wanted to buy online wouldn't arrive in time for Christmas.
(It's a bit sad when you find what you believe is the perfect gift for someone, and then realize they wouldn't even have it on Christmas. Luckily, I found alternatives that will arrive by Christmas.)
3. House cleaning is a Winter project I will be working on.
(As it gets cold outside, I'll hole up inside and spend a good chunk of that time getting my house more organized. In other words, I'm doing something along the lines of spring cleaning this winter.)
4. A holiday gift that I always buy for someone is a Dunkin' Donuts gift card.
(Pretty much everyone in my family likes Dunkin' Donuts, so usually more than one person gets a gift card in their stocking.)
Now, of course, it's Eddy's turn to show off what she's been up to this week.
Eddy still loves her Christmas tree. Here she is pondering how to flail herself into this time, with a cameo from Toby.
We hope all of you friends of ours have a fun and festive Friday!
Our Festive Doodle of the Day:
Black Cat Christmas: Day 3
Our Tip of the Day:Did you know that poinsettias are not as deadly for your furbaby as is often believed? Of course that's not to say you should be feeding poinsettias to your furbabies as an afternoon snack, as they can indeed cause irritation of the mouth and stomach. But, poinsettias are in actuality not the most dangerous of Christmas decorations. It's festive plants such as mistletoe and holly of which you should be even more cautious. Mistletoe can cause issues such as vomiting, diarrhea, decreased heart rate, and difficulty breathing. Holly can also cause vomiting and diarrhea, and sometimes lethargy or even death. Needless to say, always be cognizant of what plants and other decorations are in your home. To be safe, it is likely best to simply keep your home free of Christmas plants.
