Friendly Fill-Ins

Sorry this post is going up way later than I intended! I yet again failed to properly schedule my post yesterday. Here it is now, though.

It's time for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge. Are you ready? We'll share the fill-in statements again, and then I'll share my answers. Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two, and I came up with the second two.

1. _________ is funny.

2. I've written a fan letter to _________.

3. _________ is easier than it looks.

4. _________ is harder than it looks.

My answers are below in bold.

1. My furry family is funny.
(The kitties and puppy in my life are my favorite form of entertainment and humor. They never fail to make me smile and laugh.)

2. I've written a fan letter to Santa.
(I don't think I've ever written a fan letter to any typical celebrity. But, as a kid, I loved writing letters to Santa. So, I'm going to count that as my answer.)

3. Making a pie is easier than it looks.
(For years, though I love baking, I avoided making pies. Making the crust and filling and timing it all to get done at the right time seemed so daunting to me. A few years ago, though, I gave it a shot and realized it's actually not that hard. Now I make all different kinds of pies all the time. I do have my certain recipes I use loyally, including my grandmother's pie crust recipe, so perhaps that makes it more familiar and easy for me. But, I personally do think pies are easier to make than they seem.)

4. Closing a Ziploc bag is harder than it looks.
(This is probably a very silly answer, and it's probably very specific to me. I feel like I've even mentioned this before, but I have a heck of a time getting the zipping part of Ziploc bags to line up and actually close. My sister laughs at me for it, but one of my co-workers was struggling to close one the other day and actually mentioned how he struggles to get Ziploc bags closed on a regular basis. I had to laugh at that, because I finally didn't feel so alone with my inability to close a Ziploc bag.)

We've been having a couple of warmer days, so today you get to see Eddy enjoying some window whiffies.

There won't be many more window whiffies after today, though, because it's finally supposed to get cold and stay cold. Sorry, kitties.

Happy Friday, friends!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

Today's flashback doodle is from last year, and it stars my angel Rosie and also relates to my fill-in answer about making pies.

Tip of the Day

Our series of tips relating to Thanksgiving food safety of course must include a little discussion on turkey. Is it safe to feed your kitty or pup some Thanksgiving turkey? Turkey bits fed in moderation can be a safe and delicious treat, but only as long as excess fat and bones are removed. Fat can lead to pancreatitis, among other potential issues. Bones are a choking hazard, and of course can also lead to perforation or obstruction of the gastrointestinal tract. Also keep in mind whether any additional ingredients, seasonings, or other additives were used when cooking the turkey. For example, onion, garlic, or excess salt on the turkey could potentially lead to gastrointestinal upset or other dangers. So, you don't have to skip giving your furbaby a taste of that Thanksgiving turkey, but do be sure you offer treats only in moderation, and that you take precautions for the health and safety of your furbaby.

Great answers as always. I love watching kitties play. They make me laugh.
Have a great weekend!

Great answers. I also have trouble closing those bags too. And I disagree about pie, I have never been able to make a good crust. Cute flashback and Eddy is adorable. Great tips too. I have a 14 pound turkey for 3 people so the kitties will definitely score a little.

Love your fill-ins. I hadn't thought about #4. I agree it's most difficult to close a zip lock bag. Half the time I let hubby close them for me.

Thank you for co-hosting the Friendly Fill-ins. I always enjoy your questions.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

Supurr fill-ins and totally agree with #3, baking does seem daunting but when you get stuck in its great fun! MOL xx

I agree, self-sealing bags can be a hassle, but The Hubby has a grudge against plastic wrap cutters...he never gets it to cut properly!

Pets are the best entertainment. Maybe you need those zip bags with the little slide thing across the top, those are easier.

Love Thimble and Rosie baking the pie.

Cathy Keisha said...

It's funny watching TW wrestle with ziploc bags! She can't open them either. Great shot of Eddy.

Smudge said...

Eddie's window whiffies picture is just the best!

You are so right about ziploc bags! Now the mom buys those ones that have a slider which she says is much easier. Enjoy your whiffies, Eddy! They won't last long.
