Here are the clever fill-ins our hosts crafted up for us this week:
1. I have never been able to _________.
2. I wish I could still _________.
3. _________ is my ideal winter night.
4. _________ and _________.
And, here's how I fared:
1. I have never been able to keep a plant alive.
(I love the concept of gardening and having pretty flowers. But, in reality, I have no skill with those sorts of endeavors. My dad has a green thumb and has all sorts of plants that thrive. Sadly, the apple fell miles away from that tree. I don't often have plants under my care, for good reason, but those that I've had have all perished. My grandma gave me what I was told was a relatively self-sufficient succulent for my birthday a couple years ago. Despite my best intentions, it was dead within a month.)
2. I wish I could still do gymnastics.
(I took gymnastics for a while as a kid, and I really enjoyed it. I learned how to do flips and cartwheels and the like. I can't even remember why I stopped practicing gymnastics, but I did, and now I often wish that I kept up with it even just as a fun extracurricular. I personally would never want to do something such as gymnastics as a competitive sport, but I do wish I could still do some tumbling without worrying that I'd break my back.)
3. Snuggling up with my furbabies for an evening in is my ideal winter night.
(I love to relax on the couch or in bed on cold nights, reading a good book, working on my computer, or watching Netflix, all while cuddling some furry cuties. In fact, as I type this, I'm snuggled up on the couch, with my laptop and an orange mancat cuddled up next to me.)
4. Live and learn.
(Life is a pretty good teacher.)
As with every Friday, we now have some Eddy for you! Let's preface these photos by reminding you all that Eddy is something along the lines of allergic to the camera. Taking a photo of her is a challenge at which I often fail. These photos are proof of that.
Eddy was snoozing away on a pillow. She looked so cute and I asked her to please stay put for a picture. So, naturally, she started to get up.
Not quite the kind of silhouette shot I usually aim for, but that's all right. Thanks, Eddy. Better luck next time, please?
A very happy Friday to all of you!

Our Tip of the Day:
Ready for an incredibly random tip today? If you're ever in a pinch, you can use a shower cap as a water bowl for you furbaby. This might come in handy if you are traveling and need to grab something quick and easy to store. Of course, you have to ensure that there are no holes in the cap. But, if you can't find a bowl and simply need something out of which to give your kitty or pup some water, you can try to improvise with something such as a shower cap. Other improvisations when a bowl is not available include using a lid or even your cupped hands. Then again, to prevent the need to use such makeshift bowls, you could always keep a spare bowl in your car, in your purse, or anywhere else one might be needed.
