Thursday Something or Other

Hello, friends! I've been fighting some stubborn migraines this week, which means very little screen time. Because of that, we're doing a really quick post today, though I hope to be back up and running soon. So, for today, here's a Thimble.

And here's a silly little doodle.

And I didn't forget about tomorrow's Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, so now we'll share those fill-in statements. My co-host Ellen of 15andmeowing crafted up the first two, and I came up with the second two.

1. I get my _________ from _________.

2. It's a good thing _________.

3. _________ required me to muster a lot of courage.

4. My younger self would be proud to know that I now _________.

We'll see you tomorrow, friends!

Tip of the Day

Today's tip is one we've mentioned before, but that we're going to mention again for these cold winter days. Though of course living indoors helps keep our furbabies safe and sound during the winter months, it is still important to remember that extra measures can be taken to keep them warm and cozy. This is especially important for young or old furbabies, those with little to no fur, and any cats or dogs whose health is compromised. You can start by putting out additional soft and cozy blankets and beds for them. To take it one step further, there are heated blankets and beds on the market. Of course, be very careful when using anything heated, taking especial care to ensure that no burns or fires result. To be on the safe side, you can look into beds that allow warmth in a non-electrical way. For example, there are pet beds constructed of material that essentially reflects a kitty or pup's body heat back to them, warming them that way. Lastly, also take into consideration the location of blankets and beds. Place your kitty or pup's blankets and beds somewhere that is elevated off of the floor, and away from drafts, doorways, and windows, to ensure that they can remain as warm as possible.

Sorry to read about your migraines; I know the weather is effecting lots of folks with sinus problems too.
And then there is Sweetie, who normally has one or two sneezing fits daily, year 'round.

Hello cutie! Sure hope you're feeling better soon. I've had thankfully few true migraines in my life (although "normal" headaches on a regular basis.) No fun at all.
