Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #217

The kitties and I are joining the Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop; though, they have left me to my own devices to fill-in. Thankfully, this week’s sentences were fairly easy to complete. The hop is hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Lorianne (Four-Legged Furballs). You can find the sentences to be filled in on both blogs on Thursday. To join the hop, click on the badge at the left.

I have used teal italics for my fill-ins.


1. My latest obsession is making garden decor (flowers and birdbaths) from recycled glass items, e.g., vases, plates and bowls.




2. I am so over wearing a mask as well as going to physical therapy, where I have to wear a mask.

3. I’m skilled at procrastination.

4. I’m not very good at finishing projects.

Feline & Friendship Friday



A snoozing Cooper Murphy is participating in the Feline Friday blog hop at Comedy Plus and the Friendship Friday blog hop at Create With Joy. To participate in either click on the appropriate badge.

I love your yard art – when you began looking for glass in vintage shops, etc. I just knew you’d turn them into amazing art for the garden and you did that for sure. You’ve got an eye for the right pieces to go together. Just gorgeous. Teddy says Coop looks like he’s loving the catio – even in this heat!

Hugs, Teddy and Pam

Wow, those creations are wonderful and so amazing. Now you got me hooked, I think, MOL!!!
My sister makes yard art from old wooden boards and teapots.
Isn’t it fun to re-purpose things to make them useful again??!

Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
