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.
Dansig just read the paper and i think he’s asking me to take his blood pressure with my monitor.
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 am contemplating ______________________________________.
2. My ______________ are ________________.
3. I can _________ in record time.
4. I miss the days when _________.
1. I am contemplating going back to work, and it looks like this coming Monday as long as all is still well by then. (And by “well” i mean that i am totally symptom free and not a danger to my clients, i will still double mask and wear gloves and not stay in the same room closer than 6 feet with anyone for their protection.)
2. My cats are mostly growing more tolerant of the dog, with the exception of Enigma SissyCat, who only likes people not other animals.
3. I can braid my hair in record time.
4. I miss the days when i was able to stay home and bottle raise orphaned kittens with help from my children.
Update on our situation here, Sweetie is exhausted, even getting up to drink some electrolyte drink and eat a bite or two exhausts him. He’s going to be a while recovering, i think.
Meanwhile, Uncle P remains in the hospital with covid pneumonia in both lungs, on a ventilator and he now has blood clots. It's not looking very good.
