Friendly Fill-ins: Week 42


Welcome to "Friendly Fill-Ins: Week 42"!  You can find the fill-ins here and at 15andmeowing.com each Thursday. The first two fill-ins are provided by my co-host, Ellen. The final two statements are offered by myself. We have posted a linky list so we can all share the completed fill-ins.

I hope you are enjoying the nice weather. We certainly have been, but now are expecting a bit of snow. Yesterday, I noticed the wild day lilies are actually coming up! I do not recall that ever happening here in February. Winter’s time is growing short, though.

I may be slow getting around this weekend, but I will be there! Bill is home early this weekend and has a chore list for us to accomplish. Thanks for your patience. I am sure we can find some fun in the weekend, too. 


I hope you enjoy your weekend! We thank you for joining us for Friendly Fill-Ins each week. Your participation has made this a great weekly event for us, and we hope everyone else, too. Please remember to continue to visit everyone on the list.

This week’s questions were challenging for me! I am never prepared with answers; that is no fun. So, here are my completed fill-ins:

1. I wish altruism would come back in style. I distinctly remember when this was taught and encouraged by both word and example. It was just the right way to live and be. “Be nice” was the mantra of a kinder, gentler world


                                                                             
2. I always have too much “stuff” in my purse. In all honesty, I always have my wallet, cell phone, and an inhaler, but also plenty of tissue, Chapstick, mints, White-Out, a tape measure, pens, pencils, paper, a nail kit, a small tool kit, a comb, hand gel, lotion, a second set of keys, a book…and more “stuff”. If Bill is around, I end up with his stuff, too! That includes: his wallet, keys, guitar picks, his watch, his lists, and inevitably some kind of hardware!


3. I think that I am truly becoming comfortable with myself as I get older. I know what and who is important. I am not concerned with what is acceptable to others. I do not believe in politically correct, but rather, morally correct. I trust myself to know what is right, but I will admit when I am wrong.


4. Malice is a pet peeve of mine. I cannot understand how or why people can be mean. Kindness seems so much easier for everyone to live with. It is its own reward. The more kindness you put in the world, the more the world spreads it around for all to enjoy!

Sashay

                                                                                                  
The birds now sashay,
each one after another.
Nature takes its course.

Friendly Fill-ins: Week 41


Welcome to "Friendly Fill-Ins: Week 40"!  You can find the fill-ins here or at 15andmeowing.com each Thursday. The first two fill-ins are provided by my co-host, Ellen. The final two statements are offered by myself. We have posted a link so we can all share the completed fill-ins.

We thank you for joining us each week. Your participation has made this a fun weekly event for everyone. Sharing with you and getting to know you better has been a real pleasure. Please remember to continue to visit everyone on the list. It matters.

I am still under the weather, though the Winter weather has been unusually mild! I fear we will end up paying for this, too! Somewhere along the line, things always come back around to balance out. Such is Life.

The questions were a bit challenging for me this week. I hope you enjoyed them! Here are my completed fill-ins for this week:

1.Snow is wonderful if you have a warm, safe place where you can hibernate. I love to watch the snow fall. I even don’t mind having to shovel. I seriously was made for The North Woods! I keep the U.P. weather on my Weather Bug. It is still my goal to become an official Yooper!


2. My favorite kind of soup is home-made. I especially like chicken soup when I don’t feel well. However, I enjoy soup most anytime.! Chloe Jo loves chicken noodle soup. Well, she really just likes the noodles!


3. When no one is around, I whistle. I really do not whistle well, so I don't do it if anyone can hear me. The cats have all convinced me not to whistle. In fact, they are both vocal and physical in their protests. Bill has agreed with them: whistling is not my strength. I should mention, they do not mind when he whistles!

4. Writing is my way of sorting things out. I journal most things that weigh heavily on my heart, though they remain private. I do not share everything because I don’t think it is necessary. God knows, and that is enough. However, sometimes the things I write will later become poems or stories that I hope others may relate to.



While it lasts, have some fun in the snow!
