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 the Round was napping on the chair partially under the table. When i leaned over to snap a photo, he gave me his best, "Mom, I'm trying to sleep!" look. A few moments later, he was out again.
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 running low on ____________________.
2. I never run out of _________________.
3. I work best when _________.
4. _________ caught me by surprise.
1. I am running low on energy, i think my thyroid dose needs adjusting.
2. I never run out of stuff to do. Sometimes i run out of things i want to do, but there’s always something to do.
3. I work best when i already know the drill and can simply set my own pace.
4. The fact we bought a house with so many structural problems the previous owners were able to hide caught me by surprise.
