1. I would like to improve my _________ skills.
2. My _________ is _________.
3. My current to-do list includes _________.
4. I finally _________.
My answers are below in bold.
1. I would like to improve my musical skills.
(I used to play the piano as a child, but now I haven't played in years. I'd love to take it up again, and I think muscle memory might help me get back into it. I'd also love to learn to the play the cello, or even the violin. I'd honestly rather be able to play those than the piano, if I'm being honest, as I love the song of a string instrument.)
2. My furry family is my pride and joy.
(I love my kitties and pup so much. They make me smile and laugh every single day. Even when they're being a tad bit naughty they make me happy. What else could I ask for?)
3. My current to-do list includes reorganizing my book collection.
(I love books just like I love cats. I have lots of books, and I honestly wouldn't have it any other way. I also love organizing my books and decorating my bookshelves, but I haven't done so in quite some time. I'm honestly looking forward to my future book organizing session. I'm sure I'll have plenty of cats snoopervising me along the way.)
4. I finally made my first ever strawberry pie.
(I love making pie, and I make pies for my family all year round. For some reason, though, I have always been too afraid to make a fresh strawberry pie. I finally did recently, though. It was not nearly as painful as I thought it would be.)

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.
Eddy, our blooper queen, never disappoints. The photo she shared last week was one of her and her gnome pal Chompsky enjoying some window whiffies. That photo shoot certainly had its fair share of bloopers, most of them involving Eddy, Chompsky, or both of them looking the wrong way.
Wishing you all a fantastic Friday!
Flashback Doodle of the Day
I'm sharing another flashback doodle today. I shared a flashback doodle yesterday as well, because my scanner was not cooperating with me and would simply not allow me to share a new doodle yesterday. My new doodle yesterday was actually supposed to be the illustration for my weekly poem.
Even though I'm sharing another flashback doodle today, I believe I should have my scanner up and going to have new doodles going again tomorrow. I'll probably share the illustration for my poem for the Caturday Art blog hop tomorrow. It stars books and a cat. In fact, the newest series of doodles I'll be sharing next week will all star cats and books. To go along with that upcoming series, today's flashback doodle, which I first shared roughly one year ago, is yet another one starring books and a cat. I remember scribbling this one up last year in honor of my angel Rosie, who was always my reading buddy growing up.
***Tidbit of the Day
Today's tidbit relates to coronavirus, but not the one that causes COVID-19. Today we're briefly discussing how coronaviruses exist in far more forms than just the novel coronavirus that is behind the current pandemic. Coronaviruses are already known and common in cats and dogs, and each species has coronaviruses specific to it. There's the canine coronavirus, for example, which can cause a contagious gastrointestinal disease in dogs. There's also the feline coronavirus, which can cause the deadly, devastating disease that is feline infectious peritonitis, or FIP. These particular types of coronaviruses are not zoonotic, which means they are particular to a certain species and so cannot spread from pet to human. So, sadly, there are a great many forms of coronaviruses in the world. The virus behind COVID-19 is just one of many worrisome coronaviruses in the world.
