Friendly Fill-Ins

Hello and happy Friday! We're ready for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, and we hope you'll join us. My co-host Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two fill-in statements, and I came up with the second two.

1. I look forward to _________ every spring.

2. The highlight of my week was _________.

3. I think _________ is the word that best describes me.

4. Nothing melts my heart like _________.

My answers are below in bold.

1. I look forward to new beginnings every spring.
(While I don't hate winter, by the end of it, I'm ready for the feeling of newness that spring brings with it. When the snow melts away and the grass grows green and the flowers start popping up and the birds sing their morning songs, it feels like anything is possible. That's such an inspiring feeling that spring brings about. By the end of winter, I'm always ready for that.)

2. The highlight of my week was when I finally fixed my Kindle.
(Though I never used to be into reading books in digital form, I now love reading ebooks and constantly do so using my Kindle ereader. Last week, though, my Kindle stopped working right and wouldn't properly download the new books I bought. Though this Kindle is quite a few years old, it was a gift from my parents and I'm really quite fond of it and am not yet ready to part with it or replace it. So, though I'm not terribly tech savvy, I messed around with some settings and actually ultimately managed to figure out and resolve the issue. My Kindle is all better now, and that makes me happy.) 

3. I think unique is the word that best describes me.
(In truth, unique can be used to describe anyone and everyone. No two people are the same. Every single person is unique in their own way. Everyone has their own collection of interests, likes, dislikes, and all that jazz. I feel unique because my life and my hobbies and my goals are altogether unlike those of anyone else I personally know. The same goes for most people, I would think.)

4. Nothing melts my heart like animals.
(I just love animals so much. It's really as simple as that.)

Today, Eddy wanted to share a couple of overexposed bloopers of her keeping her year-round Christmas tree company.

Though she rarely lets me photograph her inside the Christmas tree, Eddy climbs this tree regularly. And she always loudly announces when she's hanging out in her tree. Even if it's 3 o'clock in the morning.

Happy Friday, friends!

Flashback Doodle of the Day

How about a weird bathroom doodle that we scribbled up last year? Because why not.

Tip of the Day

After yesterday's National Pet Poison Awareness Month tip on paint products, we wanted to also give a PSA on the dangers of certain glues. If we're to be honest, the primary danger of glue isn't necessarily poisonous effects. Nevertheless, we still want to warn of the life-threatening hazards of glue. Some glues, such as glues for wood or construction, as well as heavy-duty glues such as Gorilla Glue, can lead to severe side effects. Ingestion of these glues can cause symptoms such as gastrointestinal distress, vomiting, and decreased appetite. What's more, though, is that these types of glues can contain diisocyanates, which can mix with stomach acid and then expand. This can then lead to bowel obstruction. Bowel obstruction is nothing to take lightly, and often requires surgery. Needless to say, if your kitty or pup gets into glue, especially heavy-duty glue that contains diisocyanates, seek veterinary care immediately. Of course, to prevent such emergencies, take no risks and be sure to hide away any and all glues someplace where your furbaby cannot reach.

Enjoy your tree Eddy!

Hey, cool- though I wasn't in a tree I exclaimed to mom and dad loudly at 3:00 this morning. Those Eddy photos aren't bloopers, they're just warm and fuzzy. Dad says he likes your #4 answer and agrees wholeheartedly, but would like to add good cheese, chocolate, beer, sardines, oh, and mom.

It always feels great when you fix something, especially when it’s not something you are necessarily trained to fix.

Eddy is wonderful.

Happy Friday, and thanks for hosting!

I love reading on my Kindle too. I used to only want physical books, but now I only read on my Kindle. I'm glad you were able to fix yours.

Such cute Eddy pics!

Springs do symbolize new beginning/life. I love everything about the changing season except for the pollen and the associated allergies. I consider everyone unique. That's what makes us special. Have a good weekend, my dear! xx

I have had some trouble with my Kindle too -A librarian told me to go into "your account" - managing content and device and check it off to reload whatever it is. Sometimes you have to do it more than once.

Eddy, you are so lucky to have a tree inside that you can climb.

Marvelous Marv said...

Eddie! We LOVE that you love your tree! And your human's fill-ins ROCK! We are impressed she got her kindle fixed! Thanks for visiting and have a marvellously happy day!

Great answers. I knew that animals would be your #4. :) And I am glad you fixed your Kindle. Very cute shots of Eddy with her tree. I like the drawing too- and excellent tips, as always. Have a nice weekend. XO

I just love that Eddy has her own Christmas tree. YAY for a fixed Kindle!

Lovely art and pics.

Mum loves her Kindle and hers is very old but as it still works fine she won't be replacing it yet. She can't really afford to at the moment as she needs a new mobile (cell) phone.
