Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #231

Today is the day we share our completions for the Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs). Each Thursday they post four sentences on their blogs with blanks to be filled in. The intent is to give us the opportunity to get to know our fellow bloggers better. If you click on the badge at the left, you can enter the hop on Lorianne’s blog.

I got a little help from Misty May this week. We both used teal italics to fill in.

1. Misty May: I might become Dad’s new cycling partner. (Watch for more information about this in future posts.)

2. I want to finish planting my bulbs before fall is over.

3. If my house were haunted, Cooper Murphy would probably make friends with the ghost.

4. Dealing with Sawyer’s early seizures, which would not end spontaneously and caused us to rush him to the emergency vet is the scariest thing that’s ever happened to me.

Feline Friday

Hey, Mom, can I get a ride to my food bowl?


Cooper Murphy is joining the Feline Friday blog hop at Comedy Plus and the Friendship Friday hop at Create With Joy. You can do the same by clicking on the badges below.

Thankful Thursday

healingI have been in pain since February when I tripped and bent a pin in my right great toe, which had been there for more than 20 years. I am super thankful I was able to have surgery yesterday to have that pin replaced with two staples and a screw! Now the several weeks of healing begins. Woohoo!

I actually forgot one of my thankfuls last week, but it is still appropriate this week. My favorite television program, The Amazing Race, began a new season last Wednesday night, which means episode two was on last night.

The cycling road race, Vuelta a España, began Tuesday and runs through November 8. So, I have something interesting to watch on the TV everyday while sitting on my heinie with my leg up.

Sawyer, as well as Dad Tom and I are thankful his last three seizures have each been an entire week apart. Sure, he has had longer intervals between in the past, but one per week is manageable.

And, of course, we are super thankful that Dad Tom, our friends and I remain virus free.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by everyone’s friend, Brian. If you’d like to participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on Brian’s badge to go to his blog and link up your post.


Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

I only managed a haiku today for Angel Sammy and Teddy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday. It, however, is based on real events from high school.

Here’s the inspiration photo and my haiku.



Boyfriend liked bowling
My balls went in the gutter
I learned to keep score

Tock-Tober   Stinky is sitting by the teleportation tunnel waiting for Periwinkle. Tuesday is his favorite day of the week, as they always get to spend it together doing something fun. Soon Periwinkle arrives with the usual whoosh and falls into his waiting paws. After several minutes hugging and sharing whisker kisses, Periwinkle asks about […]

Sparks   This Sparks post has another quote sent to me by my California friend, Jenn. I love silence and crave it often, especially when Misty May cranks up her full-throated caterwauling. And I rarely feel lonely, but with Kitties Blue, I am never really alone. With so many of us rarely leaving the house […]

Sunday Selfies: Week #322     What do you think? Am I getting better at selfies? I realize I didn’t look at the camera, but I look engaged and interested. That counts right? I know we are still two weeks from Halloween, but I like the frame Mom selected for my photo. Hope you do […]

Caturday Art With Halloween just a couple weeks away, I wanted to create some spooky Caturday Art. I don’t know if this is spooky, but it is definitely “dark.”     If you cannot determine which of the Kitties Blue this is, it is Cooper Murphy enjoying a box. To create Cooper Murphy’s grim, gloomy […]
