It's Friday, which means we're ready to fill in some fill-ins. If you'd like to join us for the Friendly Fill-Ins but missed the fill-in statements yesterday, we'll share them again below. Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two, and I came up with the second two.
1. I learned _________ the hard way.
(Whether it be in the form of books or movies, there are many children's stories I enjoy despite the fact that I'm an adult. Perhaps children's stories have more inspiring themes. Perhaps they're filled with more innocence. Perhaps they're just fun. No matter the reason, whenever I need something lighthearted and lively, I find myself reading books meant for middle graders and watching animated movies aimed at kids. I'll never outgrow that. Want a fun fact? One of my favorite animated movies aimed at kids is How To Train Your Dragon, and my calico angel Rosie used to love chasing the movie's flying dragons around on the TV screen. Nowadays, Thimble does the exact same thing.)
In line with the above thoughts, if your pup or kitty goes on walks, consider taking a dry towel with you when there is snow on the ground. Snow and ice can clump up and get stuck between your furbaby's toes, and those with especially furry feet can attract extra snow and ice on their feet. So, if your furbaby is outdoors for an extended period of time, do consider taking a dry towel with you and removing snow and ice from on and between their toes throughout the walk. This will allow them to remain as dry and comfortable as possible when outdoors in the snow.
