Feline Friday was started by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.
He has handed hosting duties off to Sandee, of Comedy Plus, and it's simple to join, just follow the link to Sandee's page for the rules and the code.
Darlene got adopted recently. She had such a striking color and pattern to her coat that i tried to get some good pictures, which is hard when the cat is trying to solicit pets instead of posing (yes, i stopped to pet after):
Friendly Fill-Ins are easy to do. There are four statements: the first two statements are provided by Ellen of 15AndMeowing, and the final two are offered by Lorianne The Menagerie Mom of Four-Legged Furballs. They try to make sure the statements will be fun to both answer and share. The linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM on Friday. Please head over to one of their sites, link up, and share your thoughts!
Here are this week's statements with my responses underlined:
1. I feel like ________________.
2. I wish I could exchange _____________ for _____________________.
3. It’s time for me to _________.
4. _________ is really tempting these days.
1. I feel like the days fly and crawl at the same time. (Gretchen Rubin, who wrote The Happiness Project, said it better, "The days are long but the years are short.")
2. I wish I could exchange our old, tired, worn out mattress for a new one, because i will bet it would make all the difference in our sleep.
3. It’s time for me to clean out the car, but it's always time to clean out the car!
4. Anything cold to eat or drink is really tempting these days.
