Friendly Fill-Ins Week 213

Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. I came up with the first two sentences and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with the second two. If you didn’t do a post for them, you can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate. Don’t forget to add your link ( see below) to the hop so everyone can visit you.

1. __________________ motivates me to __________________.
2. I put salt on _________________.
3. When it comes to _________, I don’t cut corners.
4. Never forget _________.
My answers:
1. Nothing motivates me to exercise.
2. I put salt on everything I buy that is used like books and even the nativity ( see yesterday’s post). That is supposed to clear the energy from previous owners. I realize how insane that sounds, especially salting the nativity. I like to think of it as a quirk.
3. When it comes to my cats, I don’t cut corners. I try to be frugal with everything else, but I make sure the cats always get the best vet care and good food.
4. Never forget loved ones ( 2 and 4-legged) that are no longer with us.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.
I was very sad to see that A Streetcat Named Bob left for The Rainbow Bridge. My Angel Prancie and I were big fans of him. Perhaps they met in Heaven.

  1. I agree with #1. I once bought a treadmill and it still sits in the garage buried under years of Ivor’s junk.

    1. I had a treadmill and gave it away because I never used it then I bought a used one and eventually gave that away too. XO

  2. We’re very sad about Bob cat too, I’m sure he’s with you Angel Prancie💗
    Ah…using some witchcraft to clean negative energies with salt, huh 😉 Not quircky at all!
    Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend, Ellen and furry furriends🐾😽💞

  3. Good fill-ins….didn’t know about salt perhaps removing bad spirits but if that’s true then every bite of food I eat is FREE of them! I love salt – I shouldn’t but I do. We were extremely sad to hear about dear Bob passing on but there’s a lot of comfort in knowing that he brought his human companion a LOT of fame and fortune and totally changed his life. We cats are magic! It’s a most heart-warming story.

    Hugs, Teddy

    1. Thank you 🙂 Bob sure did change his human’s life, I hope he will be OK without him. XO

  4. I was heartbroken over Bob when I read about him yesterday♥
    Quirky is good 🙂 I hear you on #1!
    1. Nothing motivates me to pick up my camera anymore.
    2. I put salt on very few things.
    3. When it comes to making homemade noodles, I don’t cut corners.
    4. Never forget to be kind.
    Thanks for the Fill-Ins!

    1. I was too. Bob was so special. Thank you for these great answers. I am sorry you lost the urge to take photos, I hope it comes back. I bet your noodles are amazing. Have a nice weekend. XO

  5. Pawesome fill-ins! #2 we have used salt across doorways before and the main gates and for other things too! MOL We were so sad about Bob’s departure too 🙁 🙁 🙁

  6. I did fill-ins at Angel Sammy and Teddy’s place. 🙂 To tell you the truth, when it stops raining and I am out doing my power walks, I feel like a million dollars all day. Now, that does not mean I don’t have force myself out the door because I do. However, once it’s’s a wonderful energetic feeling all day. I don’t Schlep. I hit it!

    1. I will go read them over there. I wish I could motivate to walk, I used to all the time. XO

  7. Meowser great answers …. and questions, too, Ms. Ellen! I must investigate this purrtective aspect of salt.
    Thank you for hosting this blog hop.

  8. Great fill ins as always. We have similar answers for #3. I love your answer to #4. Lately, I can’t stop thinking of my beautiful Trudy that I recently lost. I miss her so much. Then, my mind starts to drift off and think of all the furbabies I lost. Socrates is actually the name of one I lost years ago. He’s the cat that comes up in my avatar pic.

    Have a great weekend!

  9. I know you’re frugal except where your kitties are concerned. As it should be.

    Thank you for co-hosting the Friendly Fill-ins.

    I’m sure your angel is visiting many kitties in heaven.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  10. Our mom definitely relates to number 1. MOL! And as for number 2, she does a lot of cleansing. She uses salt and burns sage. And she’ll soak some sage leaves in a spray bottle of water and spritz it. Same thing with Kosher salt.

  11. Fantastic fill-ins! I actually enjoy exercising, but that’s probably not normal. I especially enjoy kickboxing. And we had the same thought for #3. My furbabies always come first. You are also so right about #4. And I was also so sad to hear of Bob’s passing. I bet he and Prancie are great orange buddies up there. Purrs!

  12. We love your answers for Friday Fill-Ins.
    We didn’t do Friendly Fill-Ins this week but instead a tribute poem to our fur-friend Abacus June who earned her wings a few days ago to fly over the Rainbow Bridge. We hope you don’t mind but we do hope to be back next week.

  13. I liked your replies I am with you on excersise heheh!

    Sorry to hear about the loss of Bob RIP 🙁

    Have a frugaltastic weekend and stay safe 😷😷😷

  14. Gosh, I’ve never thought about ‘salting’ my resale purchases…but it’s a great idea!
    We too are very sad that Streetcat Bob left this earth; his story touched millions.

  15. Those were good answers! We do like to help our Dad exercise, he does a good bit every day still.

  16. I’m not familiar with #2 concerning salt but hey any bad energy one can clear is a good thing especially nowadays.
    Hugs Cecilia

  17. Meow Miss Ellen iss furry sad ’bout Street Cat Bob! Wee leeved sympaffiess on FaceBake for his Owner….
    Mee betss Prancie an Bob are runnin thru meadowss of daisess an dandylionss an watchin over efurryone…..
    **purrss** BellaDharma

  18. I think we all can agree with number three !!! we’ve shared some “quirks” between us; I’ve never heard the salt one until now !!

  19. Great answers! I too salt everything! Especially Windows! Salt not only cleanses bad energy but it’s a barrier to keep bad spirits from entering your home!

    We are very sad about the loss of Bob too 🙁

  20. I love #3 and I’ve always done the same with all of our pets.
    I’ve never heard of the salt thing, but it seems like it can’t hurt! I have my own little quirks and habits, and even my own hubby thinks I’m crazy sometimes. 🙂

  21. Sorry about the loss of Bob.

    1.My work provided fitness app, and my Fitbit, motivates me to put in lots of steps, stairs and other fitness things….
    2. I put salt on tomatoes, but my sister puts sugar on them!.
    3. When it comes to health, both for our pets and us peeps, I don’t cut corners.
    4. Never forget how we got our freedom to live the way we do. It was expensive…in lives.

    1. Thank you for these great answers. I think that is great that your work provides a fitbit. I agree about #4. Have a nice weekend. XO

  22. It’s sad Bob left this world, but it’s amazing how he changed his human’s life.
    I am sure your cats know and appreciate that you are doing everything you can for them.
    Have a fantastic weekend!

  23. Thank you for the fill-ins. Your second answer was a bit strange. We didn’t know that was a thing but now we do. Answers 3 and 4 were perfect.

  24. Considering Mom knows all those kind of things, we’re really surprised she didn’t know about salt.
