Friendly Fill-Ins Week 144

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. Thank you to all who participate.

1. If it wasn’t for ___________________, I ___________________.
 
2. ____________________ before ________________________.
 
3. _________ is my preferred method of communication.
4. You can’t buy _________.
My answers:
1. If it wasn’t for Stacia, I wouldn’t have met my hubby. She was a friend of a friend who was dating my hubby’s friend and thought we would be a good match-and she was correct. Eventually we also became actual friends not just acquaintances and I will forever be grateful to her.
2. I had several house rabbits before I became a crazy cat lady.
3. Writing is my preferred method of communication. I prefer email to the telephone. I like to be able to put some thought into my words.
4. You can’t buy willpower. I wish you could because I have none around food.I know some may say you can’t buy love, but you can- at a shelter for the price of an adoption fee.
Joanie loves her Gremmie.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.

Mewsic Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy,Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.) This week is a freebie to choose your own theme so I choose Valentine.

I only have one song, good old Frank Sinatra. My Funny Valentine.

And who remembers the episode of Friends when Chandler gives Monica a mixed tape with that song- and Janice’s voice ?

Joanie is posing with two of the books I am currently reading. I am too lazy to join the book hop today, but I do highly recommend both of these.

 

Penny will be here with one of her tips tomorrow.

Sunday Selfies-Meet Nellie

HI everyone! We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

I went to Build-A-Bear yesterday with my mom, niece and The Great One. She wanted an Anna Bear to go with the Elsa Bear I bought her last year so my mom got it for her for a Valentine’s gift. They had a special, buy one, get one for $10 so I asked my mom if she would get me a kitty.I had a lot of fun stuffing it 🙂 I named her Nellie because she looks like Marv’s predecessor, Nellie.

I have always wanted to build a bear, well, a kitty. Now I can cross that off the bucket list. Now if I could only meet Nicolas Cage then my bucket list would be complete.

I was so proud carrying my box through the mall.

Sorry, no room in my bed for you.

There is not room for 2 up here.

You are invading my space.

I will be your friend.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Joanie is thankful that we got a Chewy order.

Joanie wrote the poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo prompt:

To take a leap you need to be prepared
or else your body will need to be repaired.
This guy clearly knows what he is doing,
 I don’t so I will stick to treat chewing.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

 
1. I want to make ___________________.
 
2. My _________________ are _____________.
 
3. A day in my life always includes _________.

4. Good things happen to those who _________.

#ChewyInfluencer

Hi everyone! We have a tasty new treat to tell you about today.

*We received Friskies Lil’ Soups with Sockeye Salmon in a Velvety Chicken Broth Lickable Cat Treats for free in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

Friskies Lil’ Soups with Sockeye Salmon in a Velvety Chicken Broth Lickable Cat Treats come in a case of 8. Joanie got first dibs being that she was going to have her dental the next day. She loved her soup.

Penny loved it too.And so did Millie.

I used up the rest on Tallulah and Emmy who both need the added calories. These are especially good for cats that need more moisture in their diet as well as picky older cats needing to gain some weight. I plan to order some because Tallulah is just under 5 pounds, she is slowly gaining, but will definitely benefit from these. They are a little pricey at $7.50 for 8 ( 1.2 ounce cups), but well worth it. To order some click here.

They come in 3 other flavors too. And be sure to stock up on all your cats’ supplies while there because Chewy has free shipping on orders over $49. All orders arrive in 1-2 days, mine usually arrive in less than 24 hours.

We are  joining The Chewy Blog Hop. And the Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Mewsic and More Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy,Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.) The theme for this week s the word shadow in the title.

I immediately thought of Moon Shadow. I remember Mandy Moore singing it on This is Us so I looked for a video, unfortunately it only shows her signing for the last 30 seconds of the clip, but fans of the show will enjoy the whole thing.

And here is a video of her singing the entire song-

And Joanie is posing with our book choices of the week.We are joining Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Thanks A Thousand : A Gratitude Journey by A.J.Jacobs is a short book with only about 100 pages to read and several pages of credits at the end. I am a fan of the author’s work and how he immerses himself in a subject. This time he wants to thank everyone that makes his morning cup of coffee possible. Amazingly, that is around 1,000 people. I never put that much thought into all that is involved in buying a cup of coffee. He even goes to the place where the beans were sourced from. Others thanked including the inventor of the plastic top on to-go cups, truck drivers,the barista and so many more. An interesting little read.

Born to Be Posthumous: The Eccentric Life and Mysterious Genius of Edward Gorey by Mark Dery is one i just started reading. I am not familiar with his work, but he was an illustrator and writer. I decided to read it because he had 6 cats so I immediately decided he was wonderful. He also owned 20,000 books. Sounds like a cool guy.

And in other news, Gremmie got some new clothes.

I bought this garland on clearance at Michael’s and pulled the clothes off for him. The doubles will go to The Great One for her dolls.

Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade.

 Joanie felt that she should be featured in our art this week. She also insisted on a puzzle. It took me 22 minutes and 16 seconds to complete it- I am sure everyone can beat that.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 140

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. Thank you to all who participate.

1. ____________________ and ______________ go hand in hand.

 
2. _____________________ makes my heart happy.
 
3. Don’t be afraid to _________.
4. If _________ was a sport, I would win hands down.
My answers:
1. Coffee and books go hand in hand.
2. Snuggling with my kitties makes my heart happy. And so do hugs from The Great One.
3. Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you feel is right.
4. If stain removal was a sport, I would win hands down. Just the other day, I managed to get marker off some wood items The Great One had colored ” on accident”. Toothpaste works wonders.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.
Joanie and I thank you for all the purrs and prayers. Her teeth were good, no extractions. It takes a while for the pathology report to come back on the bumps. I only had the larger one (1st photo) sent out because it cost $200 for that which brought the bills to $877, including the senior discount we get through my hubby. 
The one in the front was smaller. As you can see, Joanie is still a little drugged in the photo.
And Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are a little out of sorts today too.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

 Joanie is thankful for her Gremmie. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are going to watch him today. Joanie is going for a dental and to have two little spots removed. A few years ago, she had a mast cell tumor on her face that I had removed. These look similar so I want them off too. If you could spare a prayer and some purrs it would be greatly appreciated.

And we are thankful to Teddy’s mom who comes up with the best photo prompts for Sammy’s Poetry Day .

Years ago woman went here once a week,
a little gossip they would seek.
A place to get away
while the kids went out to play.
Hair styled like a beehive,
this was before the invention of a hard drive.
Then lots of hairspray so it would hold,
it was a sight to behold.
That made the look complete,
but it is why the ozone is deplete.
This photo reminded me of my Mom’s beehive hairstyle in the 1970’s. I loved it- I could spot her anywhere. She actually still goes to the hairdresser weekly, but not for a beehive.  🙂 I always tease her about hairspray depleting the ozone, although the kind they make now is completely useless so I doubt it is doing environmental harm.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. ____________________ and ______________ go hand in hand.
 
2. _____________________ makes my heart happy.
 
3. Don’t be afraid to _________.
4. If _________ was a sport, I would win hands down.
