Friendly Fill-Ins Week 226

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 to the hop so everyone can visit you.

1. My _______________ is too _____________________.
2. I am willing to give up _____________________for ______________________.
3. One random fact about me is _________.
4. _________ makes me unique.
My answers:
1.My new Halloween pillowcase is too slippery.
I bought a Halloween sheet set after Halloween last year for only $10- unfortunately, they are slippery.
2. I am willing to give up some freedom for the safety of my family. I don’t mind wearing a mask and don’t understand why so many have issue with it. I haven’t even had a cold since I started wearing one and I like that.
3. One random fact about me is that I am obsessed with the water pik- that is the best invention ever.
4. My dna makes me unique-everyone’s does. I recently had my dna tested at ancestry.com and these were the results:

France49%

No big surprises. I know my Dad was French Canadian and my Mom is Polish.

We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

For my flashback, I have Angel KaTwo and Angel Snowball, they both came from a shelter too.

  1. Angel KaTwo and Angel Snowball are stunning angel kitties! I hear you on slippery sheets. I actually sold a pair I’d bought and then washed and then was like oh no that’s yucky.

    Love hearing about your DNA results. They are so interesting!

  2. Mum had her DNA done four years ago and there were no surprises really as she got mostly Greek and Italian with some Caucasus & Middle East. Her parents are from Greek Cyprus.

    And I’m a cat, born in England. I don’t really know my ancestry even though I was given a Greek name 🙂

    1. That is cool that she had hers done too. I had Millie’s done when I won from Basepaws, but it isn’t as informative as with people. XO

  3. Many of the cheaper sheets are made of very slippery material. That’s why we have to be careful buying them.

    Having your DNA done can be fascinating, and i am glad in your case it wasn’t anything you didn’t expect. A friend of mine was very startled and disappointed with the result, as it proved many of the family stories about where they came from were wrong.

    Wonderful Angel pictures, Snowball and KaTwo were quite beautiful.

    Thanks for hosting, and i hope you have a blessed and beautiful weekend!

  4. All I knew about your DNA is that whatever your ancestry, you are one of the kindest, sweetest people I know! It is interesting though to find all that out I’m sure. The flashback photos are precious.

  5. That hat looks precious her! Oh how ladycat -like! I have Ancestry too. A great deal of Scottish and English, some Wales and Ireland. The entire UK area it seems. Smidge of a few others. It’s fun.

  6. I too purchased some sheets that were a great deal, and now they are tucked into the bottom of a basket for Sweetie to sleep on!
    I want to get a water-pic-like machine, but haven’t found exactly the one that I want.

  7. Aw on your angels. Sweet memories.

    Love your fill-ins. Never thought about doing my DNA.

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

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop,

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

  8. Mom doesn’t mind wearing a mask either if it keeps her safe, but she gets a headache every time she does. As for the water pik, she doesn’t know how she managed without one. It keeps her teeth and gums in great shape.

  9. We LOVE your fill-ins! And your flashbacks of Ka-Two and Snowball are purrfect!
    We had some slippery sheets a couple of years back. I re-washed them with baking soda (one cup) then hang them outside to dry (if you can) The next wash I put 1 cup of vinegar in the rinse and they were way less slippery.

  10. 1. My self-pride is too stubborn to ask for help most of the time, I wait too long until I am desperate…and I have never unlearned that..
    2. I am willing to give up new clothes or other wants for the needs of my family and furry ones.
    3. One random fact about me is I have a long scar under my chin from when I fell of a tricycle when I was 4 years old…and had to go in a taxi to the ER, cause we did not have a car. My dad took me there…and I remember a lot about that scary (for me) experience. I got several stitches.
    4. The fact that I can speak a little or a lot of five languages makes me unique. (English, Dutch, German, French and Italian…plus a few Polish phrases…mostly learned from a teacher I had in high school who was Polish.

    Your flashbacks are sweet and so precious to have.
    I kind of like slippery sheets, as long as they are not TOO slippery. I don’t like when my jammies stick to the sheets which makes it harder to toss and turn in the bed…and I DO a lot of that! MOL!

    1. Thank you for these great answers. You do need to ask for help sooner. That must have been awful needing stitches when you were so little. That is great that you can speak a lot of languages. All I know is
      daj mi buzi- give me a kiss, my grandfather used to say that to me. XO

  11. Fantastic fill-ins! I’m sorry the Halloween pillowcase is too slippery, but I must admit that it’s still really pretty! And I have always found genetics so intriguing. I didn’t know or perhaps didn’t remember your dad was French Canadian. I had a French Canadian friend in school, and her mom would walk around their house speaking French. She was also really sweet. I’m mostly German, but I’ve still always been curious what a DNA test would say. And, as always, your angels are beautiful! Purrs!

  12. Mee-yow wow ‘angelss’ KaTwo an Snowball were so beeuteefull Miss Ellen!

    Hi Ellen: Cool that you did Ancestry.com.
    Say we jsut might be related! LOL 🙂
    My Father’s sides were German Jews whose origins were in Austria.
    My Mother’s Mother’s side was Polish Jewish & Roma Gypsy! And My Mother’s Father’s side were Russian Jewish all the way back.
    It was a bit of a trick finding out where My Mother’s Mother aka Nanna’s heritage was as she was conceived in Czech Republic but born in Lemburg, Austria. She lived there til she was 3 & then family emigrated to Manchester, England for 13 years til the family emigrated to Canada. The big problem is that Poland & Russia & Czech Republic used to move the borders alot back in late 1800’s/early 1900’s. At oen point we thougt I had Czech blood in me til I saw a documentary on a Jewish fellow who’d traced his origin…his Great GrandMother had same first name as mine…BASHE which is actually POLISH! Mystery solved 😉

    1. That is great that you know so much about your ancestry. You should do the test the next time it is on sale. You will get a list of potential relatives. That would be cool if we were related. XO

      1. I was sort of kidding about being related! I would do the test but as I KNOW my ancestry there would be nothing new to learn. The only mystery was whether I was Polish or Czech & even that has been answered.
        I could not find potential relatives of Father’s Father as there are NO records? Odd right? Bpth sides as my Father’s relatives except for 1 Nephew died during WW11. My Mother’s side is even more difficult. I feel I know enough to answer my questions.
        It is difficult for Jewish people to get info with 2 Wars to deal with…..

          1. The odd thing is how well records were kept DURING the War. In fact, when Germany invited my father back in 1991 for an all expense paid week with State dinner & Public apology, they also provided the record of what happened to his Mother. She ended her life in Leipstag, Poland in a Concentration Camp. The trouble was the info from prior to both World Wars was lost….
            6,000,000 Jewish people gone plus many Catholics, Jehovah Witnesses, Gypsies, Disabled & Homosexual people…total ‘ethnic’ cleansing.
            I think we are blessed to be here you & I…..
