Friendly Fill-Ins Week 115

Hi everyone! Time for The Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section.

1. I deserve a gold star for _________________ today.

2. Right now, I am loving _____________.
3. The best advice I’ve ever been given is _________.
4. If I had to choose a new first name, it would be _________.
My answers:
1. I deserve a gold star for finally making my printer work today.  Ever since Comcast replaced the router, it hasn’t worked. I tried several things, but ended up putting the disc back in my computer and starting over.
2. Right now, I am loving the TV show, This is Us. So many people live it and I prefer comedy, but I decided to give it a try and I am hooked. I watched all of season one in 3 days.
3. The best advice I’ve ever been given is the advice given in the book, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. Be impeccable with your word, don’t take anything personally, don’t make assumptions and always do your best.
4. If I had to choose a new first name, it would be Bridget. That was my maternal grandmother’s name.
The Great One wanted Joanie to wear Trouble’s dress ( don’t tell Trouble).
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus. And here is out contribution to Pet Photo Fails.
Can you see Joanie’s ears?

  1. Joanie! You look wonderful darling!
    And I want to thank you for coming to my 2nd Birthday Pawty! It would not have been the same without you!
    You Rock!
    Purrs Marv

  2. Good for you, solving that printer problem! To err is human, but to really foul things up requires technology. Also, that is some excellent advice.

    Joanie is beautiful, and mum’s the word.

  3. Love those fill-ins! Good for you solving your printer problems on your own. Like solving a mystery isn’t it?! Love Trouble’s dress on Joanie – looks adorable we think (we won’t tell Trouble). The ear-tip pic is cute – maybe we should have an “ear tip hop” ?? Happy Friday.

    Love, Teddy

    1. Thank you I like the idea of an ear tip hop πŸ™‚ XO and love to you and your mom

  4. Good answers! I really like The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, too. I have the cards and pull one every now and then as a ‘focus for the day’.

    1. Thank you. I didn’t know there were cards, I have to look on Amazon for them.

  5. Another great Friday fill ins post! I love This is Us. I wasn’t going to watch at first, but so many people were raving about it and I had to try it. I played catch up and was hooked after the first episode. Have a great weekend!

    1. I was hooked after the first one too πŸ™‚ I hope you have a nice weekend too.

  6. Your Photo Fail gave us a good chuckle. Most of our photo fails are pictures of the floor or Mom’s fingers. Bridget is a good name. Have you ever named a kitty that? XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  7. I’m glad you got your printer working again. That’s a good thing. Sometimes starting over is the right thing to do.

    Joanie looks great in Trouble’s dress. Too cute.

    Love the photo fail. Yes I see those ears.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. My best to your peeps. β™₯

  8. Great fill ins…yay on the printer. Anything we can do tech wise deserves us extra brownie points.
    Joanie you look lovely
    Hugs madi your bfff

  9. Your fill-ins are as fantastic as ever! I actually don’t currently have a printer at my house, but the one I used to have always gave me problems. That’s probably why I don’t have one anymore. I definitely don’t get a gold star for my printer skills. My sister loves to watch This Is Us, but I’ll admit that it’s too sad for me to watch. This advice is perfect, and I need to remember it. And I have always loved the name Bridget. It both looks and sounds so pretty. Happy Friday!

  10. I find it so cute that your cats love to play dress-up! I can’t even get a bandana on Effie! As for Paladin. . .don’t even think such a thing. . .

  11. I love This Is Us but it makes me ugly cry so I only watch it occasionally. It is always difficult not to take things personally but it is best for your happiness.

  12. Thanks for the recommendation for This Is Us. Heard a lot about it but never watched. Have a great weekend!

  13. MOL! That photo fail! Mom says thanks for the big laugh today! And thanks for the tip on getting your printer to work. That just might be the ticket for us, too, since Comcast screwed up something here lately as well.

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ I get a lot of photos like that Good luck with your printer too.

  14. Great fill-ins. I’ve heard good things about This Is Us but I haven’t watched it yet. Your Photo Fail made me laugh! I have lots of attempted cat pictures that show only the floor and one of my feet. Thanks for joining in on the hop! πŸ™‚

  15. The ear tips made me giggle. Great answers. I especially liked the third because I need to let go angst from a misunderstanding between my father and I. Ugh… Be well! I can’t take his overreaction personally.

    1. Thank you, glad we made you giggle. I find that the toughest of the 4, good luck.. XO

  16. Shoot! My grandmother was Catherine, and I’ve always loved that name! Are you training The Great One to be a cat lover? I think yours is the best photo fail I’ve seen…LOL!

  17. Joanie is darling in Trouble’s dress and so are her ear tips. That is excellent advice in #3.

  18. We see her ears! Hee hee! Our peeps like that show too although Mommy’s eyes leak every single episode. Yay for getting the printer to work!

  19. I can see Joanie’s ears. πŸ™‚ I have a lot of kitty part pictures, too. They move so fast!

    I am glad that you got your printer to work.

    I love the name Bridget. Maggie, who has a fun sense of humor, had a stuffed Santa Claus that she named Bridget. πŸ™‚

    Have a blessed weekend.

  20. We loved the fill ins and I especially liked your name choice. I think Bridgette is a wonderful name, and for felines too!
    Purrs & Head Bonks,

  21. I think being impeccable with our word sounds spot on. We should say what we mean and mean what we say. If it were just that easy. Sometimes we give our word and then realize it isn’t possible to live by that. We have to ask forgiveness and move on when that happens, Have a blessed week.

  22. I am loving these photo fails I have seen on a few blogs today – so reassuring to know that I am not the only that needs work on just using my camera phone!!!

  23. That dress looks good on Joanie, too:)
    And sometimes peeps call petcretary Bridget when they forget her real name! MOL!
    She doesn’t have any idea what she would choose for another name, but fur sure Gretchen is *not* one of them, tee-hee!
    When she was choosing names for her babies to be, she and pawppy chose Elizabeth, Rebecca and Rachel.
