Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #45



I am again participating in the Friendly Fill-Ins co-hosted by Ellen (15 And Meowing) and Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Each week they create statements for us to complete. Ellen selects the first two and Annie the second two. This is a blog hop. You can link your Fill-In post on Annie’s blog.

My completions are in teal italics.

1. The oldest item in my home is my home and all the original interior fixtures, floors, walls, doors, etc. The house was built in 1912. We have lived in it since 1984. (The kitties thought I should say their dad, but we have inherited many items from his dad that are older than Dad Tom.)

2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is are the glass bottles we use for chilled water.


3. My family heritage is the crystal my dad and stepmom purchased when they married in 1968 and my grandmother’s diaries and photo albums.


4. My favourite family tradition is was celebrating my grandfather’s Christmas Eve birthday. We have no current family traditions, except sending out our Winter Holiday newsletter. 


The fill-ins didn’t lend themselves to including many photos, and I did not feel like digging through the aforementioned albums to find a photo of Grandpa Herman on his birthday. You can see a photo of me (as a toddler) and my grandpa by clicking here.

Yesterday’s Post

I had a brain cramp Wednesday night when I went to bed and forgot to schedule yesterday’s post. Consequently, it didn’t post until 10 a.m. ET. I know many of you visit in the early morning hours so probably missed it. Cooper Murphy wrote a cute poem, and I am asking on his behalf that you check it out. You can click on the link below this post. Thank you.

Special Caturday Art

As I always do, I will be participating in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art blog hop. Caturday will be Giulietta’s and Angel Fiona’s seventh birthdays. In celebration, I will be creating art from two of their “baby” photos. I know I am prejudiced, but in my opinion, they were two of the cutest kittens ever and definitely worthy of a squeee or two. Hope you’ll come by and visit, as we will have a small party.
