Good Friday Fun

Happy Friday before Easter, friends! Speaking of Easter, the Friendly Fill-Ins are here to help us get in the festive mood today.

Here are the fun and festive fill-ins from our hosts, Ellen of 15andmeowing and Annie of McGuffy's Reader:

1. For Easter (or Passover), I _________.
2. My favorite Easter (or Passover) treat is _________.
3. Lately, the song _________ is stuck in my head.
4. The A-Z Blogging Challenge _________.

And, as always, here's how I fared:

1. For Easter (or Passover), I will be making an Easter bunny dirt pie.
(I made one of these last year, and it was a lot of fun. So, I'm making it again this year. To be honest, I don't even eat this dessert, because I'm intolerant to most of the ingredients. But, my family seems to enjoy eating it just as much as I enjoy making it, so it all works out in the end. Below is a photo of the one I made last year, in case you were curious what an Easter dirt pie might look like.)

2. My favorite Easter (or Passover) treat is spending the day with my human and furry family.
(This fill-in might have been geared toward the tasty sort of treats, but I'm going this direction with it instead. Besides, as you might have read in my #1 above, I don't eat a whole lot of treats these days because my intestines think they're all evil. Instead, my treats involve furry cuddles and quality time with family, and I'm perfectly happy with that.)

3. Lately, the song "Frosty the Snowman" is stuck in my head.
(It's officially spring, which obviously means we got lots of snow dumped on us last weekend. Ever since then, my brain thinks its needs to play "Frosty the Snowman" on repeat 24/7.)

4. The A-Z Blogging Challenge is going to be a challenge indeed.
(But, this is the funnest kind of challenge! To read about my A to Z theme for this year, just click here. I have the basics of my artsy fartsy little literary doodles all planned out, but I have not yet had time to really get started on them. Talk about waiting until the last minute. That being said, I have a long Easter weekend off of work, so over the next couple of days I plan to sit down on the couch with some furbabies and work on some A to Z doodles.)

It's that time again, when Eddy decides to show off her skills at posing for the camera. Who am I kidding. Eddy decided to go for another blooper, with a strange pose and all sorts of terrible lighting.

Bloopers are Eddy's favorite kind of shot to snap!

Happy Friday, friends!

Our Doodle of the Day:

Our Tip of the Day:

We have one more precautionary safety tip for National Pet Poison Awareness Month. This simple tip is to be aware and cautious of where in your home you put anything that might contain potentially poisonous items. For example, if you keep medications, food, makeup, art supplies, or other similar items in your backpack, purse, briefcase, lunchbox, or other carrying container, be sure to keep this out of reach of your kitty or pup. When you come home after work or school, put your bag in a closed closet, or on a hook or shelf where your furbaby cannot reach. This will help keep them from sneaking into your bag and getting into any dangerous medications, snacks, or other similar items that you might have left in there.

In this same line of thought, always be cautious where you put your groceries when you come home from shopping. We might bring home any number of food items, cleaners, or other products that contain potentially poisonous ingredients. So, do not leave any such grocery bags or products unattended, but instead be sure to put all groceries and other potentially toxic items securely out of reach as quickly as possible. If need be, for safety's sake, you can block your kitty or pup out of the room that contains the groceries, at least while you're tucking them safely away.

All in all, this is just yet another tip reminding you to always take any and all details into consideration when it comes to your furbaby's health and safety. We may see our purse or a bag of groceries as safe, but for your furbaby it might not be. So, as always, think ahead and take any precautions, no matter how big or how small, to keep that kitty or pup of yours safe and sound.

Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. That is a cute pie and how sweet of you to make it despite not being able to enjoy it. Time spent with family ( for and non furry) is the best. I can't wait to see your A-Z posts. Eddy is a cutie, she looks like Snoopy on his doghouse pretending to be a vulture. :) Excellent tips too. My cats always snoop in my purse when I leave it in reach.Have a wonderful weekend! XO

Ahem...we respectfully request that your yummy dessert be renamed Easter bunny mud pie!

That Easter bunny pie looks like it would be fun to put together. Happy Easter!

You always crack us up with your mad skills, Eddy! Oh, no. Now Frosty's stuck in my head too ... along with La Cucaracha. Don't ask. I have no idea how that got stuck in my head!

Whoa! TW is smitten with the peeps' pie! Best of luck on the A to Z Challenge. Love Eddy's snaggle tooth.

Eddy looks more than a little vampiric. Maybe she has her candy holidays mixed up !

Your kitty/bunny pals are so cute. Mom had a truly good laugh about your "Frosty the Snowman" song running on a loop in your head. So sorry about more snow. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
