Friendly Fill-Ins, Photo Fails, and the Letter U

We made it to Friday! Isn't that all shades of wonderful? It is indeed, because Friday means the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge. If you'd like to participate, we'll share the fill-in statements again below. Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two, and I came up with the second two.

1. If I couldn't live in my country, I would live in _________.

2. I wish I had kept _________ from my childhood.

3. I would choose _________ over _________.

4. _________ doesn't matter in the long run.

My answers are below in bold.

1. If I couldn't live in my country, I would live in Canada.
(I live in the United States, but I have a fondness for my upstairs neighbor that is Canada. If I'm being specific, I'd love to live on Prince Edward Island. I'm a huge fan of Anne of Green Gables, the stories by L.M. Montgomery, and they take place on Prince Edward Island. Shows and movies inspired by Anne of Green Gables often film there, and it looks gorgeous.)

2. I wish I had kept my drawings from my childhood.
(I do have some of the wacky drawings I created as a child, but nowhere near all of them. I remember drawing tons of cats and dogs in every notebook and on every piece of scrap paper I could find as a kid. I'd love to see all those wild drawings to compare them to the doodles I scribble up these days. I'm sure I'd be laughing hysterically at my childhood artistic style.)

3. I would choose staying home with my furbabies over going out.
(I'm pretty sure I've made this sort of answer work for a variety of fill-ins over the past couple of years. Probably because it's completely true. There's really nowhere I'd rather be than at home with my kitties and pup.)

4. A person's collection of worldly possessions doesn't matter in the long run.
(In reality, a person's house, car, clothes, and any random item you can think of won't matter at the very end. Perhaps this is a pessimistic or morbid thought, but this is what I've come to see as true. I meet people who fret over a tiny scratch on their otherwise fully functioning car, and all I can think is, does that really matter in the long run? Aren't there more important things to concern your time and mind with? It's not a house, car, clothes, or any physical possessions that will matter most in a person's final days. That sounds like such a dark and depressing sentiment, and I apologize for that.)

What's next? How about the A to Z Challenge?

#AtoZChallenge 2020 badge

Going along with the theme of "A Day at Rosie's Restaurant", Rosie has finally reached her dessert menu. What sweet treat did Rosie whip up to go with the letter U?

How about an upside down cake? In particular, Rosie baked you all a pineapple upside down cake. Help yourself!


There's even more fun to be had today. Why? Because today is the day of the Pet Photo Fails! Blog Hop, hosted by Mudpie and Melissa of Melissa's Mochas, Mysteries, & Meows.

As I've said before, I'm really glad bloopers are a Friday sort of thing. This is because Friday is my girl Eddy's day on our blog. Eddy is also our blooper queen, and so that's a perfect combo.

Today's bloopers are brought to you by Eddy and a new friend of hers. This friend is a little someone she'll formally introduce to you on another day. For now, though, enjoy some bloopers with Eddy and her pointy-hatted pal.

Wishing you all a fun and fantastic Friday!

Tip of the Day

Obviously, it's best to refrain from feeding your kitty or pup cake. After all, it's bound to be filled with excess sugar and all that jazz. What about plain pineapple, though? Can your furbaby have a taste of this sweet fruit? In moderation, pineapple can offer health benefits for a cat or dog. Pineapple contains a variety of nutrients, vitamin C being just one of those many nutrients.

The above being said, though, there's a reason that moderation is important if feeding pineapple to your kitty or pup. First, pineapple contains a great deal of sugar. This sugar is indeed natural, but it's still sugar, and our kitties and pups only need so much of that. Along these lines, be sure to refrain from feeding your furbaby pineapple, or any fruit, that comes stored in sugary syrup. That added sugar is far more than a cat or dog needs, so stick with feeding fresh fruit to your furbaby.

One more note to make is that pineapple is high in fiber. If you feed this fruit to your kitty or pup, keep an eye out for any diarrhea they might experience. In some kitties or pups, fruits like pineapple simply might not be a good idea for this sort of reason.

The Fast and the Blurry, as Mrs H loves to call those shots. Too quick for the camera is Eddy, or maybe she is just shy around her new pal, MOL

The Hubby says he would get a chocolate upsidedown cake for his birthday as a child. Who knew?
During my work-from-home time, I've been deleting a TON of bad photos from my library; hope I still have a blooper or two!

Great Fill-in answers. We had the same one for #1 and would pick Nova Scotia since that's where Mom's friends live. Cute Bloopers too.

Great fill-in answers, I had the same for 1 and 3 :) And I agree with #4. I bet your childhood drawings were wonderful. Eddy is a cutie, I am eager to hear about this new friend. Very cute drawing and excellent tips too. I used to have to get a fresh pineapple and juice it when I had rabbits to break up furballs.

Yvonne said...

Great answers. Canada is an excellent choice. Have a great weekend!

Sandee said...

I love all your answers and most of us are about the same on #4. That's a good thing.

Thank you for co-hosting the Friendly fill-ins. I enjoy them each week.

Eddy has a wonderful new friend.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

Eddy, your friend took a better picture than you!

Fabulous bloopers and I can't wait to meet your new little friend! I think I'm the only blogger who hasn't chosen Canada, and I probably live the closest!

messymimi said...

You and i agree on that last answer. Cake! Yumm, thank you.

Cathy Keisha said...

Eddy, is that one of the 7 dwarfs and you deaded him? Good job! TW used to draw Snoopy in school on her notebooks cos he was easy to draw and her skills were lacking.
