Welcome to "Friendly Fill-Ins"! 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 is very important. Sharing with you and getting to know you better through your answers is what it is all about. Please remember to visit everyone on the list.
Here are my completed fill-ins for this week:
1. My favorite way to exercise is walking, especially with Stella and Kenzie. When Bill joins us, it is even nicer. We see a lot of nature this way, too.
2. Something I learned last week was how to make a “zucchini boat”. We took a large zucchini and cut it lengthwise, cleaned it out, and stuffed it. We then baked it in the oven. It was so good that we made another one this week, but with a different stuffing. While the cats were not impressed, we were.
3. I am sentimental about all of the many critters that have blessed my life. I remember each who stayed for things special to them and their lives: birthdays, milestones, and memories made. But, I also remember each critter that I rescued, fostered, nurtured, rehabbed, and loved. It was with that love that I sent them on to their forever home, or released them to their natural life in the wild. I was their mother and those feelings forever remain.
4. Some people might find it surprising to know that when I converted to Catholicism, I seriously considered entering the convent. I was working at a Catholic retirement home and became very close to the nuns who operated it. They were an inspiration. I was drawn to their faith and simple way of life. But God had other plans for me.
